    not sure what to pull for. If a non-gibbs car wins, that would be 1 less gibbs car running for the championship... but if theres only 1 or 2 gibbs cars championship eligible at homestead the majority of the resources would go to that/those cars instead of being spread evenly among 3 and the less likely it would be for them to help each other. hmmmmm

    I feel like only two JGR cars are going to make it in. Kyle, Denny and Matt have all been pretty quick lately. Kyle's probably been the slowest of the three tho. Denny keeps making mistakes on pit road so that might cost him at some point. Can't rule out Edwards cause he's pretty good at Texas. But i hope he doesn't make it and i hope either Denny or Matt get eliminated.

    That three car battle JGR had yesterday was pissing me off. At one point it was clear Kyle was the fastest of the three but of course he couldn't move teammates out of the way.

    I agree, but I think Kyle was exaggerating a tad about they let the 48 win, I know hes frustrated as soon as he got out the car and everything, but none of those 3 JGR cars were gonna catch Jimmie without help from a caution or some other variable.

    Possibly but we never got to find out because of that 3 car battle and the respect they had to give each other.

    To many factors in it tho. Like Kyle could have been faster on the long run but he never had a shot to even attempt to run down JJ cause he couldn't get by Matt and Denny. It seemed like Matt was faster than Denny and Kyle was faster than Matt but they just rode around in that same order till the end of the race.

    I am sure JJ would have still won, and i am not even arguing that he wouldn't have won if Kyle was able to get around those two. My issue was that having teammates actually hurt Kyle at the point in time and it was pissing me off.

    As much as i didn't want to see JJ won it worked out for me in fantasy haha.

    Michael Annett will drive JR Motorsports' #5 Xfinity car full-time next season. There are persistent rumors HScott Motorsports will shut down. Obviously, Clint Bowyer is leaving as well to drive the #14 Cup car for Stewart-Haas Racing.

    Anyone been to Dega? I'm buying tickets for the May race. Want to know a good place to sit. Low, mid or high on the grandstands?

    Sat up high in the Tri-Oval Tower two weeks ago and had a fantastic view of the entire track.

    Future of HScott Motorsports uncertain: NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team owner Harry Scott says no decisions have been made concerning the future of the HScott Motorsports organization and likely won't be until after the completion of the 2016 season. HScott currently fields two full-time teams in Sprint Cup, the #46 of driver Michael Annett and the #15 of driver Clint Bowyer. The organization, which runs under the Chevy banner, utilizes engines from Hendrick Motorsports. It was announced Friday that Annett would move to JR Motorsports next season to compete full-time in the NASCAR XFINITY Series. Pilot Flying J, his current sponsor in Sprint Cup, will make the move to JRM as well. Bowyer's stay with HScott has been for the 2016 season only as he moves on to Stewart-Haas Racing next year to take over that organization's #14 Ford for three-time series champion Tony Stewart. Sponsor 5-hour Energy will move to Furniture Row Racing where it will be aligned with driver Erik Jones (on the #77 Toyota).
    Scott said, "As for the 2017 season, I am considering a number of options -- including an offer to run a different driver -- but no final decisions have been made and won't be announced until after the end of the season." Scott has a charter, which guarantees a spot in the starting field each week, for both the #15 and #46 entries. However, the charter for the #46 entry was a one-year arrangement between HScott and Premium Motorsports owner Jay Robinson.

    If Stewart Haas doesn't have a developmental driver then , I guess they should shut down, having a charter is interesting though, I wonder if charters are reassigned next year, if not , Wood Brothers has to get in on speed each week is messed up considering they are finishing at least in the top 25 in points.

    Thanks man. I was thinking high is the best bet. I think I'll get some tickets up high.

    Wife and I are making a vacation out of it. Going to Dega, then driving down to NOLA. We've never been East of the Mississippi River besides flying into Florida and never been down in the southern states. Can't wait to see that part of the country.

    I feel pretty good in saying one of HScott's charters will go to Erik Jones and the #77 Furniture Row team and the other will revert to Premium Motorsports.
