Latest post of the previous page:

Well, the #5 car used to be Hendrick's prime entry - before the Jeff Gordon & Jimmie Johnson days. Quite fitting it's #5 car which sets the all-time team winning record some 37 years later.

Also ironic how as soon as they brought back the #5 car their performance has dramatically improved compared to 2018-20.

At this point you have to think Kyle Larson knew what he was doing last year when he booted up iRacing last Easter. It would absolutely be the trick play of the century.

Lol, it do seem that way, don't it? But I'm happy it worked out for him like it has. I was really bummed when I found out he was joining Cup with Ganassi. And while he did win a few, you knew he could've done a whole lot more. A godly talent like that deserves to enter the top level with the best steed on offer (Hendrick/Gibbs/Penske). Now the universe's balance has been restored.

He’s giving Mr. Hendrick good advertising by running up front with his name all over his car.

Kaulig Racing will expand up to the cup series next season, acquiring 2 charters from Spire Motorsports, including the one Spire is currently leasing to Trackhouse Racing. Justin Haley will drive one of those cars full time next year, while A.J Allmendinger will drive part time in the other.

Kyle Larson wins yet again, this time at Nashville, his 4th this season and third in a row. Teammate Chase Elliott was disqualified from his 13th place finish after he was found to have 5 loose lugnuts on his car at the end of the race. Ross Chastain earned a career best second place finish.
