    Oops. Lol. Even at that, I don't remember them saying anything about it last year.

    Did anyone else see the announcement of Natalie Decker driving the #54 N29 Cup car at the Daytona 500? I saw it on twitter and now its gone.

    Decker got bumped from DGR-Crosley and will be driving for Neice this year. I guess that doesn't necessarily mean that it won't be the 54 or N29 or make a cup start, but it seems pretty unlikely. Probably just a hoax.

    Stern posted it was "likely", but the post was accompanied by a concept made by someone on Twitter. Nothing's ever been confirmed. There have been rumours she's gonna be in the 500 for RWR most likely with n29 on the car though, so it could end up being true to an extent.

    Personally liked the math behind the 8-6-4, but I can understand why they are doing this now; there are more highly competitive full time teams in the truck series than there has been in some time. I just don't like the whole "eliminate 4, eliminate 2" thing, it seems.... off. That's more a personal preference towards aesthetics than anything else though.

    I literally did the same thing (12>6>3) in my offline league. It's pretty much an "eliminate half the field at end of round", except rounding down to the next number that works.

    If someone at NASCAR would have passed MATH class, it should have been 10 -> 3 Eliminated. 7 -> 3 Eliminated. Final 4...

    Don't you go and be putting logic and sense in Nascar. Those two things are the devil.

    Did you read their statement? They wanted the round of 8 to the championship 4 to be across all 3 series.... ;)

    The Xfinity Series will use the 14-turn road course and Indy. This is the layout with the infield section in the oval turn 1.

    The length of the stages in select Cup events will be altered in 2020 to make the stages more even. Also, only 50% of the race has to be run in order for it to be called official compared to 2 out of 3 stages last year.

    We don't need more stages!! For the love of God, they've killed the pit strategy already with the 3-stage format. "If the racing needs it" ... SMH

    Edit: Exactly, thank you Matt
