    I came in here for some reason thinking that Cole Custer was going to get a shot at the Cup Series in a special #00 ride (similar to what happened to Ryan Reed when Roush brought back the #99 for Reed to race at Talladega).

    Decent scheme for the most part, and good to see Derrike back after what happened at Richmond. Hopefully this #00 ride will be somewhat more competitive than the last car Cope raced (highly doubtful, but you never know).

    Awesome to see a new team even if it's not the most competitive one

    Nice scheme. It would also be nice if this team showed enough speed to at least beat Premium at the track.

    So they're using hand-me-downs of hand-me-downs of hand-me-downs?

    Not a bad looking scheme to be honest.

    Definitely go a nice 90's vibe, which fits the driver.

    I'd love to know how Cope has the money to buy all these field filler seats. That Daytona winner's purse had to have run out a long time ago.

    That is really cool nice to see a new team.But when I saw 00 I thought it was Custer running a couple races.

    Who do y'all think Custer would even race for? Not like he can run for SHR.

    I'd say having a Daytona 500 win on your resume will bring you sponsors. Buddy Lazier's been mediocre for what, 15-20 years? He still gets a ride with solid sponsorship every year for Indy.

    SHR can run a 5th car part time with Custer as a development driver.... It cannot run the full season though

    Well, Chase ran a fifth Hendrick car for only a handful of races in 2015. SHR could do the same thing except for the fact that Cole isn't ready yet.

    No, not anymore. They got rid of that after Elliott ran the 25 in 2015.
