    We as drivers need to be trying to help this along just as you fans need to support this deal all the way through including supporting IN PERSON if it’s pulled off. Cup needs this type of racing imo, but we all need to support if we want it as bad as we say we do..

    Me and my brother built and raced it. Cost me $200 to buy it from the junkyard and another couple hundred to finish. Dad welded in the roll cage. Kelley even drove it a half dozen times. I think it’s over at DEI wasting away.

    Black on the rear quarters throws the Almighty OSS off, so let's paint the whole damn thing black, and see what Rodney can get away with. No doubt, there will be no performance advantage.

    Its a scheme Mobil 1 wanted... I guess Truex cheated for years.:idunno:

    Its a good looking car though, I will say that.

    Good article from early 1994 about Rudd leaving Hendrick to form his own team. Worth the read.....

    https://www.dailypress.com/news/dp-xpm-19940215-1994-02-15-9402150044-story.html

    I really enjoy reading old articles like this years/decades later. It's a shame Rudd's team didn't last into the new millennium. It's also kind of ironic that the 5 team won a championship with Terry just a few years after Rudd left.

    Has there been an announcement on any changes in penalties for cheating? Noting the major violations last year and how those caught still were allowed to gain points through their violations the currently system is discouraging teams from breaking rules in areas that NASCAR has stated are not to be touched. I thought that NASCAR was going to do something about it.

    If I missed an announcement, can someone provide a link to what NASCAR announced?

    Fingers crossed for them to announce a huge change in the way that system works.

    You thinking getting mean like Harvick disqualified from the chase because of the spoiler? :D

    I agree that if the penalty is big enough,Teams will stay within the rules. One thing for sure is if you fail inspection twice "You Go Home" will stop a lot of foolishness and make inspections much quicker.:D

    Back in the early 70's, at my local track, if a car failed inspection, you loaded up and went home.

    That would work as long as they impound the cars after inspection at the track. No more working on them after inspection. I'd be good with that.

    I think they missed an opportunity to repave it. With the new package taking the fall for the racing from the carpers instead of the new pavement, they could have pulled it off.

    I wish they'd go back to racing there during the hotter months. It's not the most comfortable day for the fans but it's no worse than what I sit thru in Daytona every year. Not sure what the point of keeping the old surface is if you're going to race on it in 40 degree temps.

    Seriously, they're going to repave sooner or later, and it isn't getting any cheaper.
