I'm looking forward to this season more than any in a while... mostly I think as I've really enjoyed watching the racing between Bell, Custer and Reddick in xfinity. All three are exciting to watch, hope they'll settle in well to Cup and give the more experienced guys a good fight.

Last few seasons the number of really talented drivers/ guys capable of winning seems to have reduced unless that's my imagination? Or is it just if you're not running for Gibbs, Penske or SHR then most of the time the cars aren't quite good enough?

Well it appears the board is hopping with excitement for the 500 qualifying this weekend. Actually have more entries than slots so apparently a few are going home this year, 43 entries for 40 spots.

And wow has the sponsorship fallen. No more Gatorade 125s, but apparently that's been gone a LONG time and I feel old. But really NASCAR, a time share group now? Introducing the BlueGreen Vacations Duel.

Yeah, quite a bit of hype, being non Stateside sponsors I'm unfamiliar with is usual for me, but at this rate it'll soon be The Daytona 500 sponsored by Uncle Bucks News and Liquor Store (situated behind Jim Frances ego).

I guess a number of these entries will turn out to be start and parks... hoping to get some attention and a sponsorship along the way.

I think a Chevy is going to win again, for whatever reason that seems to be a thing at the 500. Chase, or maybe a fitting swansong for Ryan Newman - he was getting better and better as 2019 progressed.

For "professional" drivers I sure as heck wouldn't get in a cab if they were driving.

Logano pointlessly blocking like a dick which ended his and his teammates chances. Ryan Newman seemed to have forgotten that he was in a car at a restart. Had NASCAR fitted electro magnets in some cars and a chap in race control was having fun with on/ off switches?

Seriously though, NASCAR needs a proper rule to prevent blocking. One move and one move only. Two moves = parked for the race plus a substantial penalty.

I don't normally agree with Brad K, but he was mad enough at one point last year to say the next guy who blocked him was getting wrecked; I think the lad is spot on right and good on him.

On yesterday's form the 500 will be a repeat of some idiot throwing a block causing a big accident. Sort it NASCAR. Even F1 sorted that...

Nascar doesn't want to prevent pileups, on the contrary.

I mean. Numbers don't lie (not sure what those are) but the plate races still seem to be the ones that get the most hype.

I don't have a pulse on nascar fans much these days.

Holy crap Logano is an actual idiot and needs to be dumped EVERY race. He blocked AFTER a car got passed him last week. That's what gets people killed. It's not an overstatement, people have died on this track but I guess he's forgotten that.

Apparently Nascar also thinks a 7pm green flag means 7ish and now rain
