Happy new year & welcome one & all to the 2018 NASCAR season thread! Well its that time once again folks, counting the days down to the clash & then the Great American race. 2017 had been a very interesting season, with the dominance of Martin Truex Jr. the points system that was put into place, Monster Energy becoming the sponsor & last but not least, saying goodbye to Dale Earnhardt Jr., Matt Kenseth (who knows how long) & Danica Patrick as well as the Chevrolet SS. With 2018, we see some changes happening, along with almost a changing of the guard. Chevrolet brought in the Camaro ZL1 unexpectedly (& happily surprised) but also we see William Byron jump up to Monster & Alex Bowman taking over the 88 but we also see Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr. join Richard Petty Motorsports & RPM form an alliance with Richard Childress Racing & switching to Chevrolet. I think Byron vs. Wallace will make for a really good battle for ROTY Now let's get down to nitty gritty. 2018 we restart at Daytona & a new schedule for the playoffs including Las Vegas, Richmond & the Roval in Charlotte, will we see the same dominance from Truex & or Toyota, or will Chevy say enough is enough? Will Chase Elliott finally get that first win that he has before hand only to slip away before. Will Jimmie break the barrier & get his 8th championship? Will Kyle Busch shurg off his 2nd place finish to get his 2nd championship? So many questions, so little time... So a run down that has happened (thanks again to @DNAsports & many others) Monster Energy: -Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr. join Richard Petty Motorsports as RPM forms an alliance with Richard Childress Racing & Chevrolet - William Byron will drive the 24, while Chase Elliott will drive the 9 - Aric Almiorla joins Stewart Haas Racing & Kurt Busch resigned with SHR - Ryan Blaney joins Team Penske in a 3rd car - Paul Menard joins Wood Brothers Racing - Erik Jones joins Joe Gibbs Racing - Kasey Khane goes to Leavine Family Racing Predicitions ROTY: William Byron Regular season champion: Martin Truex Jr. Playoff champion: Jimmie Johnson Will Ford switch cars in 2019? Yes, I see the Mustang coming in, especially if the reports of Ford discontinuing the Fusion are true. Any new manufacture plans? I think we may see Dodge announce something if the muscle cars have anything to say. Welcome to 2018, let the fun begin!
Happy 2017 everyone, just felt like yesterday that the 2016 season ended & now it just seems like a bit of a whirlwind now especially with Monster Energy becoming the new sponsor, Stewart Haas switching to Ford & Jimmie Johnson winning his 7th championship. However, I think this will be an interesting season coming up, the next thing we know, they'll be starting to test in Daytona. I'm looking forward to the new season, to see what happens next... Well let's get started, here's what we saw at SHR earlier today...
Its that time again folks, the racing season is about to begin and with a lot of changes with teams, qualification and possibly the chase. This should be an interesting year in Sprint cup, Jimmie has 6 and we have a strong rookie of the year class with Austin Dillon bringing back the 3 & Kyle Larson coming in just to name a few. Plus with Harvick & Kurt Busch going to Stewart Haas, Truex Jr. going to Furniture Row. This should be an interesting season. Let's however get started with the rumor with the chase... Via Jayski Chase Scenario: NASCAR is planning a vast restructuring of the points system in its premier Sprint Cup Series that would greatly emphasize winning races and feature eliminations in its Chase playoff system, according to multiple sources briefed on the plan this week. In addition to expanding the Chase field from 12 to 16 drivers, a win in the season's first 26 races would virtually ensure a driver entry into the championship Chase. If there were more than 16 winners, the 16 with the most wins and highest in points would gain entry. Once the Chase field was set, a round of eliminations similar to the NCAA tournament would take place after the third, sixth and ninth race of the Chase, culminating with the championship determined by a winner-takes-all season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Under the proposed system - which could still change before an expected announcement later this month - winning would become virtually a necessity to make the Chase and win the championship. Qualifying: NASCAR has scheduled a teleconference with Robin Pemberton, Vice President of Competition and Racing Development for NASCAR, to discuss changes to NASCAR qualifying in 2014. The conference is scheduled for 4:00pm/et. Details could be released prior to that. So thoughts?
