    The lack of responses the Coach hate contrasted by the outrage cause by my sarcasm is telling in the context of bias.

    Well, Matt went home to Jack, and was then jettisoned again....strangely, you never bring this up.

    We just love Matt.
    Gibbs deflected questions about whether Jones was an option.

    “We love Erik; Toyota loves Erik,” he said. “Right now our situation is we need to wind up with exactly what we’re doing and come out and tell everybody as soon as we do.”

    At a sponsorship announcement in late April when Kenseth laughed off rumors he was retiring, Gibbs said that having Kenseth return next year is “certainly what we hope. That’s what we’re working toward. …

    Yet, I have never heard anything from Matt on this. I guess we file that with Barney under all of these class acts in NASCAR that have had to deal with the owner nobody ever says anything bad about except several board members here. Comical..... Back to my post....Why didn't Jack keep him, or why didn't he stay? You pick.

    Think Chip is in the last year of his Chevy deal.....Could be interesting.....

    Chip is in no position to be the #1 team for any new manufacture entering the sport. His only option would to go Ford. It would be hilarious if he became a satellite of Penske.

    Larson coming back from a hell of a wreck at Talladega and finishing 3rd at Dover the next week, moved up 6 spots and is on the plus side of the cut off line..and crickets? :D

    Part of Larson's problem is his crew chief.

    Good for him but this is literally the first race he's outperformed his teammate

    Dodge. Dodge is coming back and CGR is going to be the factory team. The 42 Dodge Dealers Charger driven by Kyle Larson. Thats it.....

    Outside of Pheonix, either one car looks great or the other. Larson needed the finish for his confidence, he looked good all day as well. Kurt I think never got a handle on the car during the weekend, it happens to em all.

    Let's see if he can string some good finishes together.

    In all seriousness, I hope Kyle gets his luck turned around. CGR is a good team, Kurt is evidence of that. The leaderboard is more fun when Kyle is in the top 3 running that high line running down the leaders.

    A question for you all. Was robby gordon ever hyped up in the beginning like larson? Was robby expected to win and be some super talented driver like they say about larson?

    Moore's law is the observation that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles about every two years.

    In other words Robby Gordon was a long time ago.

    Did robby gordon crash as much as kyle larson?

    Larsons team mate kurt busch runs up front and wins races. So what is kyles excuse

    Larson needs to come back to Toyota where he is loved.

    He won the All Star race this year. One of his problems is that he is way to nice on the track and gets used up by other drivers. Bowman should have been in the wall yesterday.

    Ok lets not get carried away. Kurt Busch has won A RACE, not races, in the same equipment.

    He is running far better lately.

    Larson has shown he can run fast. He hasn't learned how the edge of control changes during a race. Drivers tend to wreck cars during their sophomore year and Larson continues to make unforced errors. Is this his 3rd year? Hopefully he'll pick up on Kurt's experience.

    Even to say Kurt has been running far better lately is a stretch.

    Kurt’s last 5 finishes : 13,13,10,1,18

    Kyles last 5 finished : 10, 2, 20, 4, 33

    Truex_rox 19 looks better than ever.

    Larson and KuBu are closer than the standings let on. Larson has made some silly errors, but has also been in a few "wrong place, wrong time" circumstances. More than likely, he will get that elusive points-paying victory before the regular season is over.

    In honesty, a piece of my comment was tongue and cheek, but I do think that it would change things. First, he would be in better equipment. Second, he would be surrounded by a manufacturer who truly believes that he is the deal. David Wilson consistently references the Toyota Driver Development Program's existence because of the fact that Larson got away. To the point of the Driver Development Program.....that program also supports veteran drivers with everything from sim stuff to physical fitness to sports psychology. I think that they would give Kyle the guidance he needs (perhaps in union with Chip) to take him to the next level--IF, in fact, the next level lives within him. I would love to see it happen.

    I agree. The hype machine is in full bloom over Kurt.

    Larson knows how to drive, he is in the same boat as JJ this year. Everything that can go wrong has. This car doesn’t fit his style as well as the old one. He’ll figure it out.

    Disagree. As I said earlier, it’s about using the car properly. You gotta be aggressive af in this package

    I still think Larson is a great talent. He is young and has a ton of talent.

    I believe he will be a cup champion and HOF driver before it is all over.

    He's a hell of a lot more fun to watch than McMurray IMO. He'll go toe to toe with them. Doesn't seem scared of nothing and has improved immensely since he figured out there is more than one lane to race in. He's racing against mostly pavement racers from almost birth.

    Jaime Mac was fun as hell to watch, just that last season he was so off the pace it was quite shocking to see. Just it seemed like when the Gen-6 came along, it was not Jaime's cup of tea. He had some good seasons, but lets face it. His time had came and went, he knew that too.
