"I would say racing on the World of Outlaws tour full time is my main goal."
I have a feeling she is happier now then when they were living the NASCAR life style. All of the big time racing organizations like NASCAR, INDYCAR, F-1 and NHRA can be such a strain on a relationship because everyone has to kiss so much azz and get pulled in so many different directions trying to keep the money people happy doing meet and greets and merchandise signing. And not just for the sponsors but for the series also. A driver has to keep the sponsors, the racing organization, the team owner, and the fans all happy, and try to keep their performance level as high as they can... all while trying to be a good husband and father. That can be a huge amount of stress for anyone, and it can put a huge amount of stress on the wife when she is trying to support him through all of this. Obviously, if it is a women driver then the roles are reversed.He said it....he was covering his ass in the quote you provided.
Truth. Honestly, it was good to see her happy. She and her kids will suffer for her husband's issues, but they don't deserve it. I would never wish bad things on a man's family.
I guess Chastain but I dont think they realize or fail to grasp he was under contract with Kaulig going for a Xfinity Championship. Who knows if Ross would have done better either? In my view if I was Chip I would have went the veteran route myself, we also dont know if he chose Matt to keep the sponsors from bailing. Matt has the experience of dealing with many a sponsor. I still think Matt turns it around this year, too early to say the move was a bust IMOI see many complaints about Matt, but I have yet to see anyone actually say who would have been a better choice given the situation?

If he's not already snatched up by a big team by the time Kurt's contract is up, Chip should go Ross 42 and JHN 1.The above average talent is long gone. Matt is only a seat warmer at best now.
Even Kurt is not getting the job done. Time for CGR to start making moves. I suppose Ross is already penciled in for 2021. I hope they renumber the car.
Sure. But I thought he covered for Newman in the 6 at Roush? That may have been struck on a knowingly basis of a temporary deal between the parties. We dont know the logistics contract wise of what it would have been to get him to run a full season in the 42 while also simultaneously running the 10 in Xfinity. It just never seemed that easy to me honestly.Chip knew he was under contract and committed to X before he brought him up to cover pre-COVID.
As of right now there were not very many choices, they tried for Carl and struck out, Matt was probably the next best choice. Being a big Kenseth fan I did not see him or think that he would be carrying an empty sack to the track. Neither of the team cars were front runners, but at least Kurt pulled his big boy pants up and tried... Matt reached for his skirt.I see many complaints about Matt, but I have yet to see anyone actually say who would have been a better choice given the situation?

But the checks keep arriving on time.
He’s getting better results than the 6 year Danica experiment.
Points noted, but I respectfully disagree with the lot of you other than the Danica take by Charlie, lol. I do believe there are a few viable candidates who have not been given the time to shine in better equipment. I'm going to pump my brakes on Aric and see how it plays out with him, but I'm pretty sure Clint is done and had his peak a while back. I could put money on it.1. Suarez lost his sponsorship
2. Suarez wasn't improving.
3. Almirola and Boyer are sponsored and both are solidly in the chase.
I don't think it is that easy to find another driver to plug n play at the cup level who brings talent, solid sponsorship, and is the right fit for the organization like some think it is. It just isn't that simple, this isn't stick n ball with players who basically have no choice where they go or a whole army of backers to please.
What's with the 'GEEEZZZZ'? Excluding Darlington 1, @kyle busch 18 is right.GEEEEZZZZ.
Will agree with that there is an equipment issue....probably based on the lack of technical talent (some of which could be attributed to the Chinese Virus). That being said, it has to be obvious to all that Matt is not getting the same performance out of the same equipment that Kurt is. To me. this was on full display from the start of the race this past weekend.Nothing against kenseth hes a great driver. Im saying maybe the car is more to blame
He's had eight mediocre races, finishing in the mid 20s. Sadly, DW's downfall went on for years and a finish of 25th would have been gold. No comparison.I'll be glad when the name Kenseth is no longer part of Nascar except in the record books.
I think he is doing a good job of imitating DW right now.
Better than expected but worse than his historical average at this track. Tried to pay attention (pretty hard since the camera seems to concentrate on the first couple, they need to pan back more often) and what I came away with is that Kenseth did not race anyone else, he just raced himself and the track. Except after the last pit stop, then he raced Kurt... and actually beat him.It looks like the old washed up has-been/never was big bully had a pretty good weekend
