Daryn Pittman back in the Kkr car for another year  found some funding

Yes on Stewart and Macedo.

I am saying not only is Joey in the 41 at Charlotte, but look for him to drive it next year also.

Look for Reitzel to run WoO full time next year also in the 87 car.

Pretty good chance on seeing the 4 car back on WoO trail.

Gravel may want to go pavement, but what experience does he bring and who is going to fund it for him?  I think this may be a stretch but wouldn't mind being proven wrong.

Heard the same thing regarding gravel Leaving CJB 

Stewart our at KLR Macedo in 

just my personal thought was Stewart to the 41 

Reutzel will run a true outlaw type schedule he isn’t going to run the All Stars again

87 Ruetzel, running a true outlaw schedule is what i heard.

Gravel has some backing somewhere from what i heard.  pavement racing somewhere.

word over the weekend on 41 is PPM bringing motors, and McFadden bringing cash, between the two currently.

I get the feeling gravel is thinking a sprint car is a good place to get hurt and looking to get out of them.

I think Stewart being out is a foregone conclusion that is not a surprise to anyone, including Shane.  The last two years haven't been as good as he and Kyle probably expected.  So I do believe Shane is out of the 5 car.  Shane is a top tier driver, the team just didn't do quite as well the past two years.  Those things happen.

Good find.  I remember that article but forgot about it. Hmmm. He mentions sprint car safety which we know is a hot topic the last several months.  Good find!

I've seen Gravel comment on social media multiple times about this. I recall him mentioning how NASCAR and TRD handpick and develop midget drivers but show no love to 410-wing drivers. I've never really cared for Gravel, don't have any good reason behind it either, but I will defnitely cheer for him if he does end up in NASCAR.

I disagree. I think Gravel is seeing sprint car racing as a step to bigger, higher paying level in racing- NASCAR.

Nascar is safer and for the few that make it the money is good. It can be like  getting a goverment job where race,gender and knowing the right people trump your ability.Many have tried and hopefully David gets his chance.The list that tried and didnt like it or didnt make it looks like a Hall of Fame. 3 Kinsers,Swindell,Schatz,Wolfgang are all some of the best ever that it just wasnt for them at that time.

I'm pretty sure, though seriously I may be wrong or mistaken, that Schatz never tried his hand at Nascar.  I believe he's even commented that the time for him to try probbaly passed him by and that it seems it's more common now for younger sprint car drivers to try it.  Again, I may be wrong but I don't think he's ever made a shot or try at Nascar.

Right around the time he started driving for TSR, he was runing some pavement sprints to get some pavement experience. That was about the extent of it.

There are now three ways into NASCAR:

1. You bring sponsorship and/or dumptrucks full of cash. (Paul Menard, John Wes Townley)

2. You have noticable talent and a famous last name. (Chase Elliot, Ryan Blaney)

3. You have overwhelming talent coming out of another series. (Kyle Larson, Christopher Bell)
