    Sounds like thats the plan. According to Bob Pockrass, they'll have a 4th car for Busch, Hamlin, etc.

    Probably 81. They could throw back to 02, though.

    Have fun with your crappy rich kids, Mr. Gibbs.

    Seriously, they have to have the weakest lineup next season they've had in a very long time.

    JGR had the best pipeline of talent coming in until recently, but honestly, they don't need it right now after Bell moves to Cup. No room for anybody for at least a couple of years anyway and no need to bring kids up only for them to move to other teams.

    Austin Hill will be back at Hattori Racing in 2020. Smart move

    Additionally, the United Rentals primary sponsorship will increase from 2019

    HELL YEAH!

    Also, Luke Lambert is leaving the 8 team for the 17 of Buescher next season, and Randall Burnett will be taking over as crew chief of the 8.

    Whelen and ARCA East 2020 schedules dropped. Earliest I think I've ever seen them. Wonder if ARCA West will wait til after this weekend?

    I mean....

    Cup:
    #11 Denny Hamlin
    #18 Kyle Busch
    #19 Martin Truex Jr.
    #20 Erik Jones
    #95 Christopher Bell

    Xfinity:
    #18 Riley Herbst <- give it about 3 Years.
    #19 Brandon Jones <- Probably stay in Xfinity for a long time.
    #20 Harrison Burton <- give it about 2 years with a Xfinity championship.
    #54 All Star

    Truck:
    #4 Not Todd Gilliland...
    #18 Christian Eckes < - 2 years or so to replace Brandon Jones if Menards sponsorship dries up.
    #51 Hailie Deegan <- Still think she will do PT in this ride.

    Don't forget about Chandler Smith, who looked superb in three Truck starts and won nearly half the ARCA races he entered last year.

    Yeah, those guys could work out. We haven't seen near enough yet to have an opinion, though. A lot of JGR's/KBM's success in years' past was almost instantaneous, whereas I think this group will take a little more time to get to that point. If it works out, it might be perfect timing once some of the "old timers" on the Cup side start retiring.

    So everyone kinda knows it'll happen, but I don't remember seeing anything official. Did Lionel kinda spill the beans?

    I mean, I guess that confirms it (until out-of-left-field news comes that he's re-signed lol), but the proverbial writing was on the wall(s) that he hit anyways...

    Eh, it could be done, but the effort to make such damage on a 1/64 for a truck driver who will be fired next year is not compatible to a Dale Earnhardt diecast. If say it was a Chase Elliott, would probably had a better shot.

    Pretty much the only reason they did that one is because MaH gOd DaEl
