    I was wondering what number and driver TriStar would field. Nice looking scheme. Not as good an any previous Florida Lottery cars, but good.

    Florida lottery likely requested the number. Great to see this I hope they can run top 25.

    That thing looks like a first-timer's submission on NNRacing.

    TriStar on a Ford is what makes me confused. They ran Toyotas in Xfinity, why would they use a different manufacturer in Cup?

    So this is going to be a chartered team this year, and the #83 becomes an unchartered team? Nice, Gray Gaulding driving BK's only chartered car. Wtf

    Gaulding gets the chartered car because he is slated to run 33 races. The #83 will have various drivers over the course of the season.

    So I'm gonna assume this means Tri-Star switches to Ford in Xfinity?

    That reason is simple. If you really want to be competitive in a Toyota in cup you need TRD Power out of California. Currently TRD only fields engines for JGR and Furniture Row Racing. They added an engine this year with the #77 and Jones and I don't see them expanding anymore than that at this time. So that is Cup engines only. Joe Gibbs Racing builds the Xfinity Series Engines for JGR and the Trucks engines for KBM.
    Triad Racing Technologies is not a bad Cup Engine for Toyota's but they mostly build Truck and Xfinity Series Engines with a lot of wins and Championships, but not on the cup side, they have no wins at all. Hope that helped explain why Toyota's run short sometimes. Now Triads web site says JGR, KBM and FRR are clients, that is for body parts only, not engines. You must buy all Toyota body parts through Triad.

    That number is perfect, as it reminds me of Benny Parson's #72.
