    Weaver is a passionate racing fan and now media member who provides quality coverage. He can write what and how he wants on his own Twitter feed, unless his employer or Twitter says otherwise. As a parent of 7 and 5 year-olds, everything doesn't have to be kid-proof. Won't be long until the 7 year old is hearing worse from his peers anyway. I still remember.

    Has anyone noticed that Truex and Harvick are not running as good in these cars?
    Looks like the new car has trimmed the sales of the big 3 last year and the runner up #14
    has lost it as well. Pretty soon the #10 of SHR will be their best car. :D

    He most certainly can. As I noted, I have the right to avoid him, and Twitter. As a veteran I've heard and (over)used those words, but I don't see any point in quoting them verbatim.

    yeah I have but the season is early and every track is a bit different with the setups that they have little if any knowledge about. It's been interesting so far I think. Wonder who will nail the setup for Texas. Pearn doing all of the bitching he is doing isn't a good sign he is all in. Boyer continues to make a fool out of himself. Yeah the new rules there will be comers and goers. Austin Dillion, Hemeric and the whole RCR outfit have made a big jump.

    Is the wording such as "may include" disallowing qualifying speeds and from Scott Milller, NASCAR SVP "probably get all their times disallowed " to cover any on track incident or rain impeding a driver from an attempt?

    "May" "Probable" means I will decide at the time. :D

    So they all sit in the designated staging area until one of them dares to move, then they all charge out behind him. I hope this changes things but I don't see it working.

    I wonder if anyone has bothered to ask the crew chiefs how to fix this?

    43 cars, 43 CC's giving 43 opinions of what ever is best for their car.
    This system is not to difficult to understand. First you draw for qualifying order and the draws are made in the order of points. Next the cars are staged on pit road in that order. First car gets the signal to leave, 30 seconds later the second car leaves. Continue until all cars have made a time.
    Start the race in that order. If the Car Chief made a big mistake, to bad you race what ya brung.

    I'd stage them in order of reverse practice speeds, slowest in the front, but otherwise I'm with you. Heck, they can even keep their three rounds if they insist, as long as this method gets them off pit road without jockeying for position.

    Back when, that was how we raced. Highest in points to the rear with 3 heat races to qualify for the main event.

    Oh hell why not just change the rear gear to reduce speed and get rid of the
    spoiler and engine air choking. See how many engines they can blow up.

    Suppose the Monster hauler will arrive at Talladega with a box of plates tucked away inside?

    Guys like Rusty are a big reason for popularity back in the day. Still Rusty. He had a good Hendrick quote about young hotshot drivers

    Old school here ... I always like the single car qualifying, whether it's local track lower divisions or Cup. Not sure what Nascar is trying to do, or is pressure from their TV partners to have more drama and fit into an hour or so package? The under-funded teams don't get much exposure and at least in single car qualifying the get their short time to be the focal point (of course the networks will cut to a commercial when they go out!)

    I'd love to see Edwards in the 21. Then another team could use that Menards money for multiple cars..

    I am a bit surprised, I was thinking Hemric would be a head as he has good equipment.

    Soon? Respectfully, it will have been 20 years. I'm a bit surprised the team is still in Kannapolis; single-A clubs often relocate.
