SHR coming in as early season favorites for a title run.

I agree, even though being a hardcore AD fan, Aric should had won that Daytona 500. If Kevin dominates like he has been doing, he could match MTJ's win total from last year.

That's not good as Monster signed up for two years with an option for two additional years, but cut out a year only 20% into year 2.

Despite NASCAR's best intentions to move the race up an hour, they could not get to halfway before the race got rained out.

 

It'll resume Monday with Kyle Larson leading.

No need to.  Camry sales are up 14% from last year and easily is the best selling passenger car in the USA.

Toyota's going to go with the old adage, "If it's not broken, don't fix it.".

Love hearing Kenseth is back with Roush! Any chance they move Stenhouse to the 6 and let the Kenseth/Bayne rotation have the 17?

Doubtful mid season.  They brought back Mark Martin for the announcement too, so i doubt you'd see a swap.

On a related note, why is Bayne being dropped to part timer?

Best I can tell is they aren’t happy with his results. Currently 26th in the standings and has a career average finish of 23rd with only 16 top tens and a fluke win. I saw on another site (can’t recall where) that Roush might be trying to diagnose why the team isn’t performing well, if there’s something wrong with the driver (Bayne), the crew chief, or the equipment and they feel with a veteran like Matt they’ll be able to get a better diagnosis of what needs improved

It's NASCAR, they'll find a way to f¥€k this up as they do with most purchases.

Talladega is basically the Penske Invitational now.

 

Wake me up when the 2/22 don't win here.

Do you find anything to be happy about?

(Reuters) - The majority owners of NASCAR, the company which operates the namesake U.S. car-racing series and other motorsport events, are exploring options that include the sale of a majority stake, people familiar with the matter said on Monday.

The move comes as NASCAR grapples with an aging fan base, stricter safety rules and a competitive media landscape that have weighed on its popularity and made it less attractive to advertisers and sponsors.

The France family, which controls NASCAR, is working with investment bank Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) to identify a potential deal for the company, three sources said, cautioning that the deliberations are at exploratory stage and no agreement of any kind is certain.
