Guess I'll go for Bowyer. Kind of thinking it's his last year, would be a cool story for a Kansan squawk.


Gross, pass.

Go 11 or 12

Yeah, it's just hard for me to find someone to root for. Jimmie would've been it if he was more competitive.

If Kurt winning pisses off Kyle, I'd be good w/ that.

Dillon, Bowman, Bowyer and Blaney (his family) have some dirt backgrounds.. so I'd be good with any of them, even though Dillon, Bowyer Bowman have basically no chance

Do the Busch brothers legitimately not like each other? I noticed on Saturday they were both in the interview area together outside of the care center and didn't seem to interact while the camera lingered.

From what I've read, it's legit. There were multiple comments made about it them actually being with each other when they were in the booth for the xfinity race (when they weren't even in the same room)

I guess I'm intrigued? Straightaways like Martinsville, corners like Bristol.

Just wish there was a way to fix up places like North Wilkesboro, Rockingham, and Nashville fairgrounds before doing something like that, but I do understand the ownership group side of things.

I love it. California is routinely such a meh race, only Michigan and The Poconos are more dull.

Nice. I’ve really started to like Jimmie that last few years.

Also, close to being done with my iRacing rig. Tons or wires/cord and need to figure out some wire organizing once I get the longer cords. But here it is:

Crusin USA was amazing.

That's a sweet setup shooter. If my wife gives me grief about a PS5 I'm showing her this.

Got to assume Bubba will go to the 42 or there will be a shake up at Hendricks once they're all out of the playoffs.

I make sure everything is done for the day before I get on, so in some ways, I might actually be better in my relationship because this rig, ha.

Also, my gf and daughter actually enjoy watching some of the money races I get in that are on youtube or some streams.. so that helps

Just amazing. You get to race for money without the whole danger of being killed while doing so thing.

It's a lot of fun.

There are a lot of real race series and drivers getting upset with the amount of money being poured into the sim community stuff.

Austin Dillon is a lot of fun right now.

Saturday Night will be really good if the PJ1 doesn't ruin it.

Some significant NASCAR insiders seem to think Larson to Hendrick is a real possibility.

It just doesn't make sense. They had a crack at him when Gordon left and he was a great story, now they're going to take him? Talking about shopping from the bargain bin.

I was thinking the biggest issue was the manufacturers. But supposedly Hendrick has the pull with Chevy.

The scenario I've seen the most is Bowman to the 48 w/ Ally, and Larson to the 88 or another number w/ who knows for sponsorship. No idea what sponsor would want any part of that right now.

Hendrick is like the biggest Chevy dealer in the world, he definitely has pull. I would have thought that liberty would sponsor Larson but with Falwell being gone, I don't see it. If Larson signs somewhere he'll find a sponsor, he can be a rebuttal of so called cancel culture and he can be a redemption story, America is forgiving of stuff like saying the n word. I.actually think he has a better chance of getting a sponsor with a smaller race team, those sponsors don't have to commit as much dough.

Yeah, people bring up Larson having sponsors w/ some of his dirt stuff (did not have any in the late model last week), but the difference between sponsoring a NASCAR and sponsoring a 410 sprint car is astronomical.
