He will be! In the booth. At some races?

There was such a weird aura at the track when BZF showed up randomly at Richmond last April. The telephone game circled fast all over the track in anticipation of his comments. Some thought we were going to get bad title sponsor news. Some thought he was going to step down or make some new appointment in the inner circle. I was with Gluck and Pockrass when word came down he was going to do a presser and Jeff just goes "uh oh, that's unexpected." When BZF took the stage he rambled on about driver attitude and and making them more appealing, and reiterated the sport is healthy everything is good in the face of departing sponsors and dwindling viewership. He had zero prepared statement. He literally sat down to the media pool and was like "What up dudes. Say hi to my six year old."


TL:DR France is a weird loving dude.

One step closer to:

e- Jeffrey Earnhardt gets a ride for some reason: https://www.nascar.com/news-media/2...al-2018-season/

Because muh legacy? I mean it's StarCom racing (Sounds like a backwoods cable company). Doubt they will be making waves this season. Even with the esteemed leadership of past 500 Champion Derrike Cope.


Kennedy will be interesting. He's young enough to completely gently caress everything up because of 'immaturity'. But at the same time, young enough to really shake things up and buck the status quo of the old guard. It will be interesting watch what happens over the next couple of seasons.

In case you missed it, Yahoo's fantasy NASCAR game is history. Searching for alternatives, I've found two:

NASCAR Fantasy Live Much like we've been playing with a set number of starts for drivers each season. It also has a pick the pole winner element for bonus points: https://fantasygames.nascar.com/live/picks
FOX Fantasy Auto This is the same model as the IndyCar game for those familiar. If you're not, it's pick five drivers and stay under the salary cap: https://www.foxsports.com/fantasy/auto/help/

Thoughts?

fake edit- We may have no choice- it sounds like the FOX game may not be coming back, either.

Gluck still does is bizarre fantasy game where you pick the winner of every regular season race before Daytona.

He was really nipping at the heels of a win last year so I think he'll be able to close the deal on one this year.

Helps having a France that gives a poo poo about his sport. NASCAR needs a serious shakeup in administration, but that'll never happen.

I actually got to spend 30 or so minutes with Brent Dewar at Richmond. His responses to the questions me and several people hit him with left me feeling like he cared a great deal and was genuinely excited for the future.

Then again, actions speak louder than words.

That's a hell of a thing to see show up in back-to-back timeline posts on Facebook.


One of them gets fiercely defensive of the sport and, even though it might be genuine on his part, seems like the public yes man a guy like Brian France would love. Was Dewar the one who got in a pissing match with fans on Twitter recently?

I give him credit if he's genuinely all-in but I doubt anything gets fixed with the current generation of Frances in control.

Yeah Brent tried to take on NASCAR mouth breathers on twitter. Not smart.
