He's screwed until the playoffs unless he is setup to find a stream from the interweb. It's almost all dinky USA network until the PLAYOFFS. NBC is going all in when the playoffs start. It's one big NBC smoke show chock full of screaming gerbils and CUTLINE!!!, we'll be following some poor sob driving around the track that doesn't have a prayer in hell of winning the championship trying to make the CUTLINE, while up in front the usual's will be having their race while the gerbils will be trying to blow drama smoke up our asses all four of them at a time.

The drama is so manufactured.

Mike Joy, Bowyer (I know I’m in the minority here) and JR in the booth. Larry Mac in the studio. Jamie and Jamie on pit road…. All on the NBC broadcast without having playoffs shoved down our throats. I can daydream right?? Lol

I blame NBC for this playoff B.S. The put the bug in drunkin Brian France's ear IMO. Even after that, it would be tolerable if there wasn't 4 screamers trying to blow smoke up our asses and just call the damn races as they unfold.
I was watching Xfinity practice yesterday. Allgaier was coming in hot around a sweeper and some smoke came off his left rear. All of them went into this long dissertation as to why there was smoke, showed the damn replay twice...car with smoke going into corner... and meanwhile the freakin practice was only 20 minutes and they burned off 5 minutes talking about this B.S. grrr.

A hot take of my own: NASCAR should kill off the ARCA National Series, car counts are declining to where there's at best 5 competitive cars on a good week, attendance is dwindling even further, most of the promising young driving talent is bypassing it entirely, and only 2 drivers even completed the full season last year

The ARCA Menards Series (NOT the regional series as those are for promising young talents to first showcase their skills) has no future and it's time NASCAR just ends the series, as it's dying a slow death.

I don't know what the plan is but I'm pretty sure NASCAR didn't buy it to kill it.

Most of that promising talent is bypassing ARCA, then why did Ty Gibbs just run ARCA full time, or Chase Briscoe 5+ years ago?

That’s a very hot take. Car counts have improved or stayed the same at most races this year. I guess you didn’t comment in the thread when they had 25 cars at Mid-Ohio this year and 16-17 cars last year.

ARCA Menards East could have better car counts, but they usually get 15 cars.

I have no clue why people want ARCA gone? If you don’t like it, don’t watch?

A short track somewhere
Only the second driver in history to win the Slinger Nationals in his first start. 6 wins this year, some big ones in that. Byron has turned into Superman in Super Late Models this year.

He's the best driver every time he shows up.
