    1 I am looking forward to seeing how the Knaus/Byron pairing does as I think the kid is the real deal.

    2 Can Jimmie get back on his horse?

    3 Seeing if Kurt can get the 1 car back in victory circle.

    4 Can Ryan Newman score a couple of top 5’s in the 6

    5 Will Suarez give the 41 a better ride than Kurt?

    In terms of off track stuff I am interested in the sponsorship situation with the teams and Nascar overall. I also like to keep an eye on attendance and TV ratings as well as other things relating to the business of Nascar.

    I am looking forward to seeing what the 2019 rules package looks like. If it can help save Nascar by bringing in some new fans and shoring up flagging attendance and home viewership I am all for it.

    I am no fan of Truex but I would like to see him unseat Kyle as #1 at JGR.
    Is this Denny's last chance year?
    Can Joey repeat?
    Will the 2019 set up prevail the whole season?
    Will Blaney step up at Penske?
    Is the 9 car the new top dog at HMS?
    Will Jeff Gordon step in as the #2 at HMS?

    Hendrick Motorsports rebounding and winning a lot of races (hopefully).

    I can't say I'm "looking forward" to the new rules package, but I'm definitely hoping it will be good. That's gotta be the biggest story heading into 2019.

    How the Chevys do this year.
    How Alex Bowman does this year.
    How the split up between JJ and Knaus works out.
    I'm curious to see if the new package will hurt the Fords.
    How Truax does with his new team.
    How many times KDB falls off the deep end. "Sorry Revman I had to.:)

    boy, a lot of the questions have been covered , getting hard to find some different ones.
    who will come out top dog at preacher's place and can they beat Rodney and Harv in the new Mustang 4 car, or will Harv and the Fords lose overall speed
    Will there be any new faces arise because of the new car packages this year and some who have made crew chief changes.
    Will the new car packages be a boom or a bust for stock car racing
    Will the Xfinity driver match ups be as good as it looks on paper
    and who will be the young standouts in the trucks.

    I think the answer is YES. There are a few drivers that can handle the high speeds but others who can really drive when top speed isn't the deciding factor. I think JJ is one of them but I am also going to be watching Larson as well as Team Penske.

    my guess is some of the younger drivers who came up the ranks driving similar cars (less HP) in ARCA and K&N will do well with the smaller track package and maybe the intermediate package.

    looking forward to the new aero motor package to being a huge success, so in 2020 they go to full restrictor plates and put a huge sprintcar wing on the roof.

    I look forward most to any legal and civil charges Brian France may suffer in the future. He deserves all the suffering that life can provide to him.
    He is still a most dispicable person, worthy of all ass kickings, and bullying from a prison cellmate.

    If anyone knows how to inflict a voodoo harpooning and suffering upon him, I would like to learn enough to help with putting the curses on him....

    Logano went up another notch with me when he rooted Tru axe out of the way. Clean bump not a dump BTW. Winning M'ville with a second place car is a mark of a driver that needs to be a champion IMO. I always try to watch him on restarts if he is in the picture. I think this new package is playing into his and other drivers who are aggressive on restarts and don't mind racing hard and going door to door into the corners.

    The short tracks, the one-milers, the road courses. Anywhere where the cars won't be under-powered in my estimation, and anywhere that grip and driver throttle control ability will still be at a premium.

    Steve Phelps has hinted that schedule overhaul could begin as soon as 2020, so I'm looking forward to watching how that will play out.

    The Xfinity Series will probably be the best it's been, in terms of young talent and depth, in a while.

    I'm not looking forward to the actual product but I'm interested to see how the low power/high drag formula plays with the fans and drivers after more than just a sprint race. As always I'll be watching the shorties and road courses - also how the new superspeedway rules work at Talladega and July Daytona.

    Whether or not NASCAR makes good on their word of shaking up the schedule in the near future...it sounds more substantive now than ever before.

    Also, I think this is a really important year for Denny Hamlin...

    Intrateam battles - probably how Hemric compares to Dillon and Stenhouse compares to Newman.

    A few things...I’m excited racing is almost here so here it goes
    1.) How teams react to the new rule package
    2.) Does HMS find their groove again?
    3.) Can Chase Elliott make the Homestead Bowl?
    4.) Does Chevy become more competitive than 2018?
    5.) The rumors of the schedule change in 2020, ready for some juicy rumors
    6.) What drivers step up to be the “Big 3” this year
    7.) The late career evolution of Jimmie Johnson, interested to see how Rick, Jeff and HMS rebuild the 48 team around Jimmie
    8.) Will Daniel Hemeric outdrive Austin Dillon? Can RCR have a resurgence?
    9.) What greatness KDB has in store for us this year?
    10.) Willy B and Chad’s working realtionship

    But he does still have the same CC and the same cars from JGR that he had last 2 years.
    This year Adam won't be able to bully the pit crew. I wonder if Truex keeps his same pit crew?

    Wrecks, fights, bitterness, anger, name calling, insults, and rage, and that's just for speedweeks. I hope the short tracks are even rougher than that. Need some good redneck behavior. Give the talking heads something to talk about. Ahhhhh......the good old days.
