So Furniture Row shutting up shop and Truex/ Pearn rumoured all over the place but most strongly at JGR replacing Suarez.

Tellingly, it's sponsor leaving - and clearly no replacement lined up - behind this; if the current champion team is struggling for sponsorship then I would think it's a very harsh environment for any team at the mo?

Unless I missed it Hendrick still hasn't got a sponsor announced for Jimmie Johnsons car either...

Nope, NASCAR themselves have taken up MASSIVE amounts of the sponsorship dollars to be corporate partners. Why be with a team that may not win when you can be the to the whole series, no driver to do something stupid, no crew chief to deal with suspensions. Well you do have the idiots in charge but that doesn't seem to hurt sponsors like a driver can.

Monster are off at the end of the year though, so either they decided NASCAR viewers aren't their target audience after all or have better value for money spending their sponsorship dollars elsewhere?

Anyone else know the Brickyard 400 was run today? No? I didn't either until I caught some random blurb on random station...

Yeah, but only after a pop up from NASCAR app on my phone during the xfinity race - which also ran Monday. Looked like the stands were near empty (for xfinity). In bed before Cup! 🙁

Daytona? It would be more interesting to see him at Bristol or Darlington.

Agreed but there's only 1 Daytona 500 and only 1 person to win Le Mans overall and the 500. He may want to match Super Tex.

Well, I was certainly worn out by the end of the roval race today.

Now, on a brighter note, Sears Point is announcing the reinstatement of the old, 2.52-mile layout for the Cup series for next year.

Carousel comes to mind unless I'm mixing things up... how many years ago since NASCAR ran that layout?

Yup, Carousel is the complex. And it's been since 1997 since they ran the "full" course.

For those who know more about NASCAR than I do, was the full circuit better for racing? Is this a step up?

Well, in a couple of weeks the SCCA Runoffs will be held at Sonoma, and the layout map indicates that they're using the carousel. The races are supposed to be streamed as they have been since 2009, so tune in(or, if timing doesn't allow for it, check out the stream archives once they go up a couple weeks later) to check out the GT1 class to get something of an idea what it might be like for when NASCAR comes by - they'll be the closest thing to NASCAR that you'll be able to see until June. They're going to be the first class up on the first race day - October 19th at 8:30 AM local (Pacific Standard) time.

If you'd like to know more... Well, I've just been parroting the information contained on the site, so here y'go: https://www.scca.com/runoffs I'll be glad to help provide information not contained(or sufficiently detailed) on the site, though.

I like the short course both there and at the Glen. Both suit the cars and racing better, imho.

However, I kind of over Sonoma. It would be nice to mix another road course in for the top series.

I'm not sure the longer course does much to add to the race for stock cars,, they were making the infield of "The Roval" (because apparently Daytona doesn't have an important one as well??) look pretty narrow at times and it's pretty damn wide most places. I don't remember much Indy action through there but then there isn't much action at Sonoma at any point on the track with them so maybe not a good comparison.
