The two lower series (especially the Xfinity) are just so watered down with the 4 or 5 Cup drivers dominating the series but not in championship. This is the first positive I've seen from these clowns in a while.

They basically said not renewed but he will be with them next year in the same car so maybe a pay cut is in store for the elder sister.

Mixed feelings about this. Yes it's annoying when Cup drivers are dominating the races but on the other hand it's making the series more interesting when talents drive against Cup drivers.

Me too. I like seeing the Cup drivers in the Xfinity and Trucks. If someone can sweep the weekend at Bristol and win 1000 laps of racing, that's awesome, and maximum respect to them.
I'm not particularly fond of him as a person, but Busch in the black Monster #54 will always be my favourite stock car.

I don't mind one in every other race and I get why they do it; they want to race and win and win money and race. Who wouldn't? It's just taken so much away from those series, especially when they start effing around with the championships, not that there's really a true "champion" anymore...

After Gordon, Dale and Edwards retired, Nascar needs new starts. It's important to have Xfinity winners to graduate to Cup.

Who knows Kevin Conway, Stephen Leicht and Brett Moffitt? They were Nascar Cup Rookies of the Year this decade.

Austin Dillon was the 2013 Nationwide champion, and he didn't win any race. How could anyone promote him?

Yeah, NaBUru38 makes a great point.

I just watched Keso, Capt Snothead and Sliced Doosh dominate a feeder series race. Again, I get why they do it (I would, too), but didn't hear about any of the other drivers during the race unless they were spinning. Not doing well to get younger drivers more air time and more popularity. Not good for the future of the series; any of the three.

This is a big deal to me too,why not promote these guys, and see what works and use it. The Glen road race was a sell out and freaking awesome to watch, but they can't or won't do other races like this but try rovals?!
Anyway,Kasey kahne wins the Brickyard is in the championship automatically and can't keep his ride? And truex is putting on a master class this year and if he doesn't win the championship well silly season all year

Well looks like someone is getting called up to the majors for 2018, JR Motorsports Byron will replace Kahne in the #5.

I'm still confused why the 5 isn't Cornflakes and Terry Labonte so maybe I'm a little out of the loop.

Don't worry about it. I don't think you're missing a whole lot.

And don't forget that Capt Snothead drove the Kelloggs 5 car for a few...

So Kahne is another free agent. Interesting how that marriage never produced, but that's old man JJ and a bunch of kids at Hendrick, with the second most senior driver being 24 yr old Alex Bowman. Crazy.

Even the cars get a silly season, Chevy switching to Camaro for 2018 and beyond after the SS goes out of production.

Can't say I don't like it, I would like some changes to the rear and windows to better match the production but oh well.
Oh the chaos in Iracing now!

Not like GM had much else they could run in Cup. Only alternatives were the Malibu or Impala.

Question is will Toyota stick to their bread and butter Camry sedan, or eventually run a coupe of their own?

Will probably lead Ford to switch to the Mustang for Cup. They already run it in XS and will replace the Falcon next year in Australian Supercars.
