I don't know about you, but I like it when the PLAYOFFS for all three series start on three different weeks. That's not confusing, no siree.

As for actual news, in perhaps the most random Speedweeks entry we've seen in a LONG time, Rich Bickle is running the ARCA race.

we were talking in discord about how dumb the duel is so here's my idea to set the 500:
Top 2 Qualifiers are the pole sitters
Top 10 in each of the twin races get in
The 16 Chase drivers from last year get a provisional so they get in
That leaves 2+ spots available (depending on where the 16 Chase drivers end up) that you hand out on time OR you can do something fun and have the past champions provisional and a diversity spot for a woman/non-white dude/minority-owned team to get a freebie if they miss the race otherwise

edit: the fun part is, aside from the twin races you can do all this for the rest of the year too. The Chasers get their Free Pass and everyone else actually has to work to make the race.

I like it, but what happens if the Chase drivers finish in the top 10? Just keep going down the previous year's standings until you get an equal number?

And dear God, somebody would run Natalie Decker in a car with a guaranteed spot and it would be ugly.

I'm going to make The Allen Bestwick Memorial "If You're New to NASCAR" Effortpost in case there are new fans tuning in for the Daytona 500:

NASCAR Cup Series: The top level of NASCAR, not the top level of entertainment. This is where your stars are and where everyone wants to end up. The racing hasn't been that great in the last few years because they keep screwing around with the aero package, but we'll have a new car next year which hopefully doesn't suck as much.

Top drivers: Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Denny Hamlin, Martin Truex, Jr., Joey Logano, Brad Keselowski.

NASCAR Xfinity Series: NASCAR's B-league. Prior to about 2006, this series was fun, with a mix of up-and-coming driver and washouts from the Cup series, with occasional appearances by Cup series drivers. From 2006-2018 or so, this series was rear end, but it's made a comeback to its old mix of drivers the last couple years and is almost more fun than Cup. The AHL to the NHL.

Top drivers: Justin Allgaier, Austin Cindric

NASCAR Gander Outdoors Camping World Truck Series: NASCAR's tertiary series which races:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dlZdQyBpo3s

TRUCKS TRUCKS TRUCKS TRUCKS. The only series which makes tracks like Kansas and Texas entertaining.

Top drivers: Matt "Winless 2019 Champion" Crafton, Johnny Sauter, Brett Moffitt, John Hunter Nemechek.

Can't speak for any of the rest of the West Coast Audience, but I took tomorrow off thinking there was more than an outside chance the race would get rain delayed.

Not for me.

I actually have a double whammy. The campus is already closed tomorrow due to an impending snowstorm, but everyone working from home has to work since it wasn't a holiday anyway.
