    He needs to hone that skill.... he still self destructs and makes too many mistakes. Hopefully he can learn that at JRM, otherwise he might be just another Casey Atwood, Erik Jones, etc etc.

    I see what you're saying, but did you just put Atwood and Erik Jones on par with each other? Lol

    Yeah.... more of a high-expectations and a lot of hype and overall lackluster delivery comparison lol

    I wouldn't call Jones lackluster. Jones is tied for 11th in average finish this year, has a win, and he's pretty much on par with Denny Hamlin in most statistics. Not bad.

    AJ Allmendinger, who delivered JTG Daugherty’s first team win in a Watkins Glen thriller back in 2014, will not return to the No. 47 Chevrolet next year, the team has announced.

    I'm comparing to the hype surrounding him. Heck, you could also put Dale Jr in that category IMO. Tons of hype and didn't really deliver, got beat out for ROTY.... while I will admit that Jones still has time to really start shining, putting him equal with Hamlin is like saying a team is doing as good as HMS this year lol Expectations were higher, and more so with the hype.

    It's also his second year, which isn't a big sample size. Jeff Gordon won two races his first two years and then won 4 of the 7 next seven championships. It's too early to call him lackluster. Not everyone is Jimmie Johnson and can hop in and do extremely well right away.

    I know, some people don't land right away. I didn't think that was what hype meant.

    GMS Racing will field the #28 truck for likely ARCA champion Sheldon Creed at the final 4 races this season. Not sure if this will be with the #2's owner points or if it will be a 5th truck.

    I have a feeling this will end up becoming a full time gig for Creed next year

    Ambrose won when the team was still in the Nationwide Series at Watkins Glen driving the ol' #59 car.

    I know; he showed a LOT of potential, however, he and Noah both show very similar characteristics. I think Erik was pushed too far too fast without time to really hone the skills. Likely we MIGHT see him become a legitimate title threat a year or so away. I'm just saying, so much pressure with the hype around them, I think it kinda screwed him and I believe it threatens to do the same to Noah.

    With Allmendinger out I think DiBenedetto will end up driving the #47.

    I think it's pretty much confirmed that it's Preece.

    I really doubt he'll end up somewhere better than Go Fas is. There's too many drivers with proven talent/sponsors/potential looking for rides, and I feel like DiBenedetto will be one of the odd men out, along w/ Bayne at this point.
