    You have the charter floating from the 3rd FRM car...
    The Money Team (which is probably Cohen/NY Racing Team), Suarez is floating and could end up at RCR in a 3rd car

    1: They've ruined Iowa with this, mark my words. Maybe not the on track action, but the race as a whole.
    2: I'll wager this is a knee jerk reaction to smaller teams that almost never finish above 25th bitching about how much a pit crew costs for stand alone events.
    3: I already have 2-3 scenarios in my head where this is going to needlessly screw over a driver/team because of how poorly thought out it is.

    EDIT: While I have some sympathy for those teams just starting out, part of the cost calculations SHOULD be a functional pit crew. If you can't even afford to do that much, or failed to tabulate that into your financial breakdowns, you probably shouldn't be running a race team in one of the top 3 series.

    Apparently there is a linked photo somewhere where I’m trying to find....but as far as the news involving Kyle Larson, Ross Chastain, and Advent Health, hearing Ross Chastain will pilot the #77 Spire Motorsports Chevy with Advent Health as sponsor.

    Let them try it out and see how bad it will be. I agree with the fact that teams should factor in the cost of crew members. I don't see how this will help teams save money.

    What frustrates me is, that at one point in time, NASCAR was trying to simplify things and make it easier. Now, it seems they are trying so hard to make watching a race so difficult. I don't really care about stage points and all their fictional points for playoffs that only matter if a driver makes it to the playoffs. I sure as heck don't care about the creating convoluted rules to save Joe Shmoe's race team because he can't afford to race, but thinks he can. Let the teams who can survive run a real race, and let time get rid of the others.

    They already did (I think it was 2009?) and it was such a massive failure it was scrapped almost immediately. To make it worse, they added restrictions on what service they could perform each stop. Zero chance this works well.

    The white on the legs on the white background makes it look like he's wearing high waters.
