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!
Figured I would stat a new thread. Last year's stalled after a short while. Let's see how far this one gets Anyway, I was scrolling through Facebook when this beauty caught my eye: This is Jimmie Johnson's Primary 2015 Lowe's Chrvrolet. I imagine there will also be a black version for Kobalt Tools, a Disney/Pixar for a movie in the summer (been doing that for the past few years), and a JJ Foundation scheme similar to this. Other notable paint schemes for this season: Carl Edwards's new ride at Joe Gibbs Racing: Denny Hamlin's New design (Expect a Red, Green, and Blue version for the different branches of FedEx) : Expect Kyle Busch to run this car for majority of the early part of the season... or Daytona, who knows? New look for Ryan Newman's #31 CATERPILLAR Chevy: Kurt Busch going with Red instead of black like last year in the #41 Haas Automotive Chevy: ^^^Just noticed that the H from the HAAS wordmark is the striping on the sides of the car. Nice. Ty Dillon will run a limited schedule in the #33 Chevy. He will have Cheerios for the Daytona 500, but I'm really diggin' this Yuengling scheme, which is slated to run at Pocono in June: Dale Earnhardt Jr. loses National Guard, but Nationwide is there for the save in 2015 as the Primary Sponsor: Ty's brother, Austin (2014 ROTY Runner-Up), will run this Bass Pro Shops Paint scheme at Talladega in May: And finally (Since I'm at my limit for number of pics in one post), from the XFINITY Series (the Nationwide Series), Elliott Sadler moves from Joe Gibbs to Rough/Fenway Racing, taking OneMain Financial with him and will drive the #1: CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPRINT CUP PAINT SCHEMES CLICK HERE FOR MORE XFINITY PAINT SCHEMES With that, I'll open it to discussion. Post Away!
