Do you mean because Jr did it? Or do you mean he just was doing what he did? Cause Drew teased it a few months ago also before Dale Jr did the KB stuff
I mean Drew knew the announcement was coming about Brandon, just like Jr knew the announcement was coming about Busch and used symbols. Dollar wasnt implying he had the ride in the 9

I'd like to see Smith get a shot. I can't say precisely why but JHN doesn't have that new car smell for me anymore.

I agree. I saw Smith race in person at IRP and was impressed. I want to like JHN and and want him to succeed, but much like Jeb Burton, I'm just not feeling it any more. I feel like both of them are Xfinity lifers in a BEST case scenario. If JHN ends up in a JGR Xfinity car, he make us look foolish, but I just don't feel like he is progressing, as opposed to somebody like Gragson, that has noticeably improved every year on the national stage.

He's shown he can win, its the sometimes erratic nature he shows that makes me want to scream at times.

Going back to trucks and losing out on the championship last year really hurt his stock.

I think Matt is doing alright. Rackley War doesn’t have the budget that Thorsport or KBM does from what I can tell. I’m hoping he gets another season in a decent Truck.
Rackley WAR already confirmed he'll stay for 2023.
Matt got 6 Top 10s so far this year which is five more than what that team got in 2021.

As a big supporter as his. I got to admit, he’s really really disappointed me this season in trucks. Maybe I was wrong about him
I KNOW he's a lot better than what we've seen this year, so I'm left to believe that truck is REALLY bad. There may be a lot of Chevy's in the Truck Series, but Enfinger and Hocevar are the only two that don't completely suck, and they have a combined one win so far. The rest don't really impress me at all. At this point, Kraus seems to be a total waste of a decent truck, and he may be the BEST of the rest.

His decision making on track... That's about it.
You're not wrong there, but even with that, it seems to me he should be dominating the series to the point that a few bad decisions shouldn't hurt him that much.

I keep having to remind myself, Nemechek is only 25. He had no business being in a Cup car.
Tell that to Jeff Gordon, Kyle Busch Chase Elliott and Ty Gibbs. With his pedigree, he was a guy I would expect to jump in a Cup car before the age of 21 and be at least serviceable. I realize the equipment was not as good. I'm pretty sure he is better than Harrison Burton.

JHN isn’t Jeff Gordon, Kyle Busch, Chase Elliott or Ty Gibbs.
That was obvious after watching him in a Cup car during his first season. The second season wasn’t justified.
