I Honestly hope the kid has a long, winning cup career so that win is forgotten as a "joke"
I don't get it when staying out, risking it all, rolling the dice and coming up a winner is a joke. We really have some dumb fans sometimes. Another thing, Hayley has been racing for years in the trucks, has done a good job with a smaller team sponsored mostly by his family, kept his nose clean and had some good finishes. He had that win coming.

Plenty of people say one of the things they like about plate racing is it equalizes the field. Let a one-off X driver win one on strategy and listen to 'em howl.

Hmm this could be pretty interesting in the future for Penske, the supercar star. He would be pure hell on road courses I bet, he would make a great ringer when the new car shows up.

While McLaughlin is confirmed to defend his Supercars title in 2020, he has long talked about a move to the USA and NASCAR being his “obvious goal.” Team owner Roger Penske, too, has openly discussed the possibility of the tin-top ace piloting NASCAR machinery in the future.

Maybe going from Toyota's top team to Ford's second best team to a team with nothing will do the lad good. Maybe he will learn to do more with less than the other way around.

Glad to see Ty get another shot
I'm not real high on the guy myself, but I hope he makes the most of the opportunity for himself and Niece. Chastain showed that they have decent fast trucks. The part time truck is similar to what they did last year, it's more like a rent a truck/crew. Now Decker on the other hand ran 19 races last year. Finished one race on the lead lap and wrecked out 8 times driving for DGR-Crosley. I don't know how you spin that.

He's improved a ton in his SLM and I think that will go a long way with the trucks this year. Who knows sometimes, gotta find that right combination.

He drove the record setting Roush #60 car so he does get the benefit of the doubt. Nobody could hang on to that mess. :D

Just a shame for Gaulding. I hope he still gets the chance to run some Xfinity or Truck races.
Graf should not even be in ARCA.
Being on a smaller team and less pressure on Graf might actually help him improve. Gaulding had an excellent season, it sucks he got pushed out. Graf and Ray Black might make the new meme team, I hope I'm wrong.

I think he will land a ride somewhere, but SS Green light made a lot of progress last season.

Black wasn't too bad last year. Graf can only improve.
