The scenario I've seen the most is Bowman to the 48 w/ Ally, and Larson to the 88 or another number....

I assume something is lined up. No way Hendrick would sign him before having a sponsor lined up

You're probably right, but if he did, it would be a good gamble to self sponsor that car for a few races, to give a chance for his story of redemption to be told, and he's probably going to be running to close enough to the front. Someone will jump on.

Probably get Hendrickcars.com and Chevy Goods / Accessories for the first few races of next season.

I'm starting to like Chase Elliott.

Not for winning the championship, but racing the Snowball Derby, in Millbridge tonight and the Chili Bowl next month. The way he speaks about grass roots racing (and from the sounds of it he treats everyone really well at these events) and the people involved, is not like the silver spoon raised kids in most of these rides.

Similarly, Riley Herbst paying for the Stewart-Hass Xfinity 98 ride is so rough ridin' stupid.

Yeah i'm pretty firmly a Chase guy now.

I hadn't seen the Herbst news. It appears, at least on the twitters, he is not well liked or respected

Lol, I got ya.

I’ve actually heard a lot of people refer to him as Terrible Herbst. Joke kind of writes itself, but still.

So Denny and Bubba announced 5 sponsors, and supposedly they have enough funding to already look to field another car.

Pepsi Co. has left Hendrick (no more Mountain Dew for Chase), with Llumar moving over to him for a few. Still no announcements for Larson, but I'm not sure they can announce anything until he's technically allowed to race again? (No idea either way, but that's not until Jan. 1).

Pumped to see Chase in Tulsa in a few weeks. I'll be in the pits for at least a pre-lim night.

Yes, sir!

How are the fumes? It's always something I kind of want to experience, but I picture it's like actually being inside of a jack hammer while smoking 8 heaters at one time.

It’s pretty bad, especially if you’re there all week and sitting in the stands/close to the racing surface. The fumes and the dust generated in that small area, and the infamous chili bowl flu definitely kicks in after leaving.

I have buddies that race so we hangout at their trailers where the air isn’t bad, going into the pit pass only sections to watch a race when we want/can. I only go to one pre lim night and the mains Saturday, so I’ve never had any issues besides a few hangovers.

It’s something to experience, either way. More so now that Chase, Larson, Briscoe, Bowman, Bell, Stenhouse, etc appear like they’ll be involved more.

2 years ago I was in line behind Jeff Gordon at the beer stand. Didn’t bother him as multiple asked for pics. Guys like him, Tony (he works the track all week now), Kenny Wallace and more are very personable during and after the races.

Picture leaked of his 2021 hauler yesterday. Looks like all Hendrick owned companies as primary sponsors, only others are the secondary and tertiary sponsors that primary for others in HMS.

Saw Bowman wrenching on his cars last night, pretty damn cool to see what he does for his drivers. He's a likable dude.

Have seen Chase, Ryan Blaney (wearing a Chase Elliott hat and always with a beer in his hand), Ryan Newman, Bowman, Christoper Bell, and Larson so far this week.

Really cool event that should be on everyone's bucket list.

J-Mac is always parked here next to my buddy. He’s a cool dude and this is insane to watch, has advanced through 5 features. If you’ve ever heard of Alphabet soup, this is it!
