    Not digging the font or that its a Chevy, but I am sure he is going to do a lot better than JMac did.

    I'm kinda giddy Larson and he will be on the same team. The comparisons will make it interesting. No doubt they are aware of that. It's go time for both. Larson is going to have to step up his game if he has any more speed. Kurt's pretty darn good.

    Yeah, I agree 100%. Having Kurt in the same team in equal equipment will be the final semester in the Nascar Cup education of Kyle Larson, I believe.

    My prediction: Larson will be as fast as before, but over the course of a long, grueling season, his average finishing position will improve... and Kurt will have something to do with that. JMO.

    I think it's possible if Larson and Kurt can get along, Larson will learn more about race strategy and set ups that McMurray lacked.

    Its going to be interesting for sure, I feel that McCall is going to be the weakest link .

    Combination of McDonald's/Cessna/DC Solar probably, with maybe not much left to fill. $5M is less than I expected but with all of those plus Credit One I think they're pretty well off with a couple of months left to go.

    I think Kurt being a mentor of sorts for both Larson and Chastain should be pretty helpful.

    Chastain, Larson, and KuBu... Chip Ganassi made some really smart, heads-up decisions this silly season. Watch out!

    Huh. Interesting. I found this from about a year ago on them. Sounds like they mean business...

    They did a lot with Ross Chastain I recall him saying on Jrs podcast.

    ^ Speaking of Ross Chastain, his previous seat in the #4 has been filled by Blake Koch. I *think* this is new info, but not sure...

    I think he will gain more from Kurt than he ever did from Jeremy

    Your bubble burst. Chin up little buck. There will be more irresponsible journalism for you to go off on soon.

    Koch, is a solid if unspectacular driver, I know his twitter all year while he didn't really have a ride was pushing his business. I honestly thought he was done driving and focusing on that.

    I'm gaining more respect for Chip Ganassi after seeing this.

    Bob Pockrass‏Verified account @bobpockrass 19h19 hours ago
    Ganassi said he expects Jamie to stick around and some announcements coming ... Chip has said he offered Jamie a ride for the Daytona 500 and then transition into a front office role.

    Yoinks.

    Unfortunately there's probably not much left, is there? JRM #9 part-time? JGR #18 part-time? GMS?

    GMS confirmed John-Hunter, no? Those are like the only two good cars available. Maybe the 18 if they can get Craftsman involved again. Moffitt was pushing so hard to get Pabst Blue Ribbon behind him on social media... Would have been nice to see.

    This was last I saw. GMS doesn’t say anything on their site either.

    I don't know how serious the PBR thing was, but my understanding is that PBR has got serious issues right now. I guess PBR has been brewed under contract by Miller Coors, but supposedly Miller Coors is closing the only facility they have available that could brew it at a reasonable cost, and it sounds like MC MIGHT be trying to put the screws to them. If the owners of PBR can't reach a new deal with MC or find a new brewer, they may be up a creek. personally, I think gasoline tastes better than that god awful stuff.

    I hope he does. That is pretty rough, having the championship in your hands to prove what caliber driver you are and still somehow not convincing someone to pick you up.

    They won that lawsuit and will stay on shelves.

    I wish Coors did that. Maybe then it would pick up some flavor.

    Side note: Those commercials with Pete Coors walking around the snow-covered mountains are the only ads that ever made my Darling Bride or I want to get in the car and go get a case.

    Ganassi's going all in on Ross Chastain it looks like.

    Well, guess any decent ride Moffitt could get at this point would be part-time.
