If it wasn’t for bad luck, Friesen would have none at all. Damn shame for the 52 team they brought a piece tonight. Should’ve parked it in victory lane.Heart broken for Friesen, but if anyone could win I'm glad it was Chastain and what's a pretty small team. Some great racing the last 25 laps.
The dude is the type of person NASCAR needs. Earned his way to the top the hard way. Incredible talent. He's aggressive and doesn't care what people think, and that could get him into a rivalry with another driver and bring back at least some of what made the sport so great in the 90s. I can't wait to see him get a quality full time ride somewhere, although I don't think the 45 truck is necessarily junk.Ross Chastain has driven every race in all three series this season.
He drives his own motorhome to the track each week.
On Monday, he drove 400 miles, then drove his own motorhome back to Charlotte so he could fly out to Florida to work on his farm.
Quintessential NASCAR is right in front of us. We keep asking for the old days and throwback personalities.
I don't see a good reason the one series rule should apply to anything but Cup. Wouldn't a driver contending for Xfinity and Trucks series titles simultaneously be a good story? Not to mention that it is quite unlikely to happen, so I don't know what they are preventing.If Chastain didn't designate the Xfinity series, he would have a comfortable lead in the truck series.
I put a curse on Stewart Friesen because of the way he ran his mouth about the Kevin Ward / Tony Stewart accident. He mouthed off about Tony acting with malicious intent that night, and seems to think he is a clairvoyant or something. So I don't root for him any longer (but just kidding about the curse, LOL).Being a Friesen fan is what it was like rooting for Chase his first 2 years in cup. Maddening.
If Ben Rhodes keeps screwing around he is going to be great. He's fearless. When he threaded the needle making it three wide, both of those drivers knew he was going to make it three wide wither they blocked him or not he was going to come thru.What a move by Rhodes this is good stuff
I just saw his 2nd save in 2 weeks from this race. No ****** way, those are not normal saves. This dude needs to be put into an elite Cup ride immediately, I'm convinced.Chastain is this generation’s Brad Keselowski. Spent most of his career riding around in junk. Wolf in sheep’s clothing. Drives the wheels off anything he climbs in. When he gets his break he’s gonna be big time.
