Hmm, I'm not too up to date on the rules, but I am pretty sure this is probably not too safe for Daytona.

I hope he does well too but I think the xfinity team would have been the better choice if it was available. Unless that car starts getting help from gibbs it's going to be a chicane.

Thatís because it was an imitation of the old Castrol Jaguar paint scheme, which is classic and good.

Another year, another missed opportunity to cull some dull 1.5 mile tracks for THE ROCK and another Darlington Race.

There's some deal they made with the track owners to keep the schedule locked down that runs out this year. They've been hinting they really want to change things for next season. (i can't wait for the big change to be Indy gets 2 dates or something)

Feels like it's trying to throw back to Dale Sr., but a good paint scheme.

I have a bad feeling they're going to enter into some sort of sanctioning agreement (again) for five years, which would make it difficult to adjust the schedule.

This is the first time I can remember in which NASCAR will regularly have a two man booth.

Late '90s/2000s:
ESPN/ABC- Bob Jenkins, Benny Parsons, Ned Jarrett (ESPN-only)/Ray Evernham (ABC-only; they might have had two before Ray showed up)
TNN- Eli Gold, Buddy Baker, Dick "DICK" Berggren
CBS- Ken Squier/Mike Joy, Buddy Baker, Ned Jarrett
TBS- Squier/Allen Bestwick, Buddy Baker, Dick Berggren

2001-06 (longer for FOX):
FOX/FX/SPEED/FS1- Joy, DW, Larry McReynolds/Jeff Gordon
NBC/TNT- AB/Bill Weber, BP, Wally Dallenbach

2007-14:
TNT (solo)- Weber (until he got fired )/Ralph Sheheen/Adam Alexander, Wally, Kyle Petty
ESPN/ABC- Jerry Punch/Marty Reid/AB, Andy Petree, Rusty Wallace/Dale Jarrett

2015-Present:
FOX- Same as above
NBC- Rick Allen, Steve Letarte, Jeff Burton, Dale Jr.

Most recent I can think of is BP and Jenkins during ABC telecasts before Evernham joined them in 2000. Otherwise a 2 man team hasn't been used since the 80s i'm guessing.

Also to balance out a good Ryan Newman sponsor and scheme, with an absolutely horrible sponsor that deserves being put in the wall on lap 1.
