    Its too late for them to redeisgn and they have to send the designs to whatever third party manufactures the composite cars, who have to approve the change as well as NASCAR.

    The only reason Roush didn't lose money in NNS last year was because they shuttered a full-time entry. I wouldn't exactly call that "performing well."

    Guess it's unfortunate that superspeedways only account for three of 33 events - otherwise Ryan Reed may have actually contended more often.

    The point still stands that, from a design and performance standpoint, the nose on that car is at least three years behind its competition.

    wow this thread got off track quick. Any words on any actual sponsors that will be on this car? Maybe Draw Tite or Cooper Standard for Cindric? IRacing maybe for Majeski?

    I can see iRacing being on the car for a few races this season, as well as one of Cindric's sponsors from the Truck Series last season being on the car at some point (assuming they stick with him for 2018 as sponsors). Knowing Roush/Fenway, I also expect a decent-looking Ford EcoBoost scheme as well down the road.

    Winning the owner's championship is not behind its competition.

    No sponsors announced or rumored yet, but CS has left NASCAR, and Draw Tite is expected to sponsor Logano or Blaney. Team Penske's already announced a full time associate deal with Draw Tite on all three cars.

    That decal/body set is a travesty, I don't care what overblown stats are thrown around (especially given that their Owner Championship car is literally made up of Cup drivers). It looks horrible, lacks any real professionalism, and, quite frankly, it looks stupid when you slap decals on a body that was made for decals 8 years older.

    On topic, iRacing will be on there more than likely at some point, but Roush hasn't had the greatest luck with attracting sponsors.

    Roush selects who runs the 300 by drawing out of a hat.

    And he wonders why his business is crap. lol

    It’s not the 500 it’s the 300, and it’s Ford Performance that decided this. Other than running it Roush controls very little about this car

    It's the 500 of the Xfinity series.... I would doubt that Roush doesn't control any of the decisions

    300, 500, 250.... semantics lol
    It's the biggest (2nd biggest?) race of the season in each of the 3 big series.

    And they chose the driver for it by drawing plinko chips... out of a hat.

    Maybe next year we can find out who drives it by having the famed Super Bowl octopus select the driver?

    I really miss the Roush of old.

    The Roush of old would have entered all 3 of them in unsponsored cars full time, then shut two of the teams down mid season releasing the drivers because of “no sponsors and no room for him at the Cup level”

    Even when the team was dominating all 3 series they still managed to make their Driver Development a huge shitshow. The Gong Show was a huge fraud, none of the people on it got the ride they were supposed to. And the only one who made it to Cup was David freaking Ragan

    The Roush of old had 5 competitive Cup teams.
    The Roush now shutters a competitive Xfinity team mid-season, has 2 Cup drivers that compete only at plate tracks, and has turned into a shadow of itself barely worth mentioning on a weekly basis.

    Let's be honest, who here had Stenhouse making the Round of 8, even as a dark horse/underdog? Anyone? No? Didn't think so. But I digress.

    I know Roush is tight on money, but come on - posting a screenshot from an Excel page with the spell-check marks still present?
