Welcomes Episode Sixteen of Nascar Hot spot podcast. I'm a Ross Troy Joe by Chris, Caden and Nick. Today is more ob a review episode, as we're gonna review the season. We're going to give our favorite races. Are At least three races running over who impressed us this season and who kind of disappointed us the season and gave our favorite schemes of these season of a wit on pro back non throwback schemes. So the no dirty Mo for Chris is let's just this one started. How is everyone doing? First weekend of offseason? I'm all right. Partly days we I was busy on Sunday, so I was all right. I got cut out in a big rain storm. Oh yeah, I forgot it that there is massive win. There's a whole branch down in the middle of my street. Everyone gets are rating out of ten for the season. One and ten picks one of the time. All three. Now you saying Stan said for I said five, three. I gave it like a six and a half. Is that generous? No, now, yeah, it's very den generates. Know it will allow to the WHO want. So we're going to go over the season kind of quickly. Me a second. We can skip most of the summer. You can see the holes of over the highlight highlight home, the season, Hamon, harbard one and then the playoffs. Neither one of them won. The champion, Kilreay went. Where do you we? It's said. We've said the fight the same time, like two thousand and eighteen. It was sad. Twenty teen. Was that we not funny, based on the fact that it was Lagana? Yeah, I start this up with the day twenty five hundred. I thought it was a pretty as a pretty good race, her race, but Ryan Newman almost died here. Didn't have been an amazing race that Ryan Newman didn't as die. It was an amazing race. He didn't die, so it's fine. Yeah, I wo's gonna say it was a good race. Yeah, it's top by for sure, maybe three. I would probably say top. It's better than both titledegger's totally spring was about I hate a spring wasn't bad. I do it this fanning because it was like it was less of a crash fast. Then Hammlon one is second street. Okay, so Las Vegas, I believe, like I really like. Shea's let it early and then he blew a tire and like I figet whatever happened after. And then there's a late restart and bleed choked and Lagana came through and snatched a win. Yeah, all the end. I'll trouble and that fitly down. It does leave the hat high. Auto Club, take it away, mom. Yeah, Bowmen, Bod I was in Mexico that race. Bowman just dominated. It wasn't even a contest. You don't we got Rona. Yeah, we got it. And the week after everything I saw down cols an eventful. All I remember is blaney and Boman being the front to no one could touch them, but no one could talk to bowman. COULD BLAME ME? Was Auto Club? The Kobe Ers? Yeah, yeah, I was. That was the best part about that weekend, pretty honest. And BLAMI founs a lot about the highland of Johnson's family leaving the fly. This is something that looks very high right your this is the season review, so there won't be much Jimmy John Yeah, yeah, that's true. Yeah, supretty Much Phoenix. Um, like Im Rolla dump trick to another one. Yeah, away was Phoenix, the one where Almolla a thing. Yeah,...

...yeah, we did the thing and our pandemic. After that we come back and it's Darlington and Kyle lorrison is gone. Is Weird? Oh God, yeah, we didn't talk about that. Kyle Larson got some better offer and dirt or something, so that's where he went. Yeah, for sure ended up getting a ride upgrade from this whole thing. Yeah, it did a rags learn then went to a better sea. Back the kiss. The rocky showed off in that first Darlington race. Running happened. John had a NAMA check. All surprised as everyone's like it was like for there before first five race of the season, everyone's like, let's go, John Our new Chi he's gonna win a rookie of there. Let's go. And then I was one of the ones that are like, you know, he might, he might actually kind of Contin rood a year and then and then the rookies actually got better, like in the summer. Why? I guess we're gonna while we're on the topic of me the check, I know Troy said we're going to do silly season. We forgot about it's fine, we can't. Well, we went through the first three races, I mean before they was basically a whole different season. Yeah, we can just do news right now, doesn't matter. Y. Yeah, Joma check not returning to front row. Yeah, it wasn't. That's Today. That children. Where's HE gonna go? Okay, so my guess is Newman is gonna retire from full time but may or may not come back part time, which is why you didn't want to say he was retiring before Phoenix didn't get a whole send off, that he's just going to come back cansas style. So I think Newman's probably going to retire from full time. I'm not sure who's going to race for it, and I think me the check is going to take over the six. Yeah, actually I think they're going to do a number change. I think they'll go from the six to the sixteen and then Newman will die. Have One last race in the five hundred in the six over the s colled now. Oh yeah, we have a loads of other well, yeah, anything else on the whole emsche situation? I have no. It was kind of surprising. Yeah, yeah, you already said he had a new deal. He tweeted that are so it's like at the cash ready for the devils. Yeah, so he obviously he didn't just leave for a worst team. You obviously got a better team and I don't think he's going back to expfinity. I don't think he would take that. I think it's still start with front. No, yeah, and he's not going aspire because that's basically the joy as I well, there's potential for day. Brother. I feel, I still say Um, like he got a deal with spire and you just spire for two thousand and twenty one. For retires after two thousand and twenty one, I mean aspires, the one car. Nima checkers to a one car after curve retires. So someone, someone DM me that and I'm like that will be a launch one. A check has run with Canassy in the past, but everyone's run with Canassy in the past, it seems. Honestly, the ninety six is a bad option because they do get t rd development. They're just not better than front. Yeah, but there's a sixth car to get that also spired serious about petistry running two cars. It's also the chance we can see Le Joy and the check. Well, the I think not. I think the joys all but announced. I should say I'm pretty sure they've already signed it. Yeah, but it's unfortant. The second cards is goes to waste with like read sons and Dragon. Second CAR IS gonna go to almonding. They're going to run road courses, a lot of those second cars running full season. Yeah, I already said, Tayt. That's why I think again, there's always I don't think it's gonna Happen, because be that, but I didn't check. Leaves a twenty six place team for a thirty second but they did get the Hendrick Alliance. Did they have? Depends on how they did. I think spider can be a lot better than what people are thinking for next year, saying like a twenty place team. Maybe...

...like a twenty five lakes team. Now, yeah, I so. Now Sanuel Hammer, Daniel Hammer to jacobs racing, replacing Riley hurts. Thank God. That's all I gotta say. God Love Hammering Brow. I wait here was it? Where he done? He didn't dominate. Re led so many races, two and eighteen. I swear to God, like like everything, hate and that I wanted hammer to win so bad. He didn't win a follow race, but I swear you led like every single race, a hundred laps each, especially in the playoffs. I swearing on every single reason to playoffs. You went like most of the race and just chilled. Tom Can lead while we host to the ninety eight. That's a hell's have talked about that. We can ignore. That is garbage. Hey, I can all rant about that. You know he's the fourth person here. Can I rant about that? Tony Shuts only monster a Mondy, yeah, the monster. Nay, sponsorship? No, I heard, I or I read something, that Tony has like almost no sam the explinity side like its all Ford. Well, that's all hot, all money. So Ford has Dan and then Dgan his monster energy, because I know has only high gives, but that's not say forty one. Yeah, but then Kurt Bush gets sponsored by monster and he's Chevy. Monster's got too much more. Wolf Broth is gonna be leaving GMS Racing and going to Oh, I forgot about our motor sports and mixed mess. Good move. I think you can make the playoffs. I don't think o't, but I don't seem I think a lot. Yeah, I think I'll have a rocket seek season. Yeah, I think the same ran seas. I think it'll be. It'll be. I feel like that'll be a little bit better than see just because my fat. So he makes the final four. No, they really just outside. I want to be like most was on points, because I know MOFATT and MOFATT did most of the verses they were. They were supposed to only do like the first like four, most of the season and then they somehow pulled the I like almost all. Yeah, because Andy Lowley did the road course, yeah, and courses. He didn't do Bristol and he didn't do Miami too, because he crashed in Miami one. And then be Jim the cloudland in the car inside of you guys are going to run our car that we have to use. are driver. As I enough on there's not much as talk about in the burn mouth. Where does he go to? Something that come because it's not gonna be a permanent deal. Like where did he going to that? I think see him. YEARE and whine. I think are colleague. I think eventually, I think. I think he stays with the team because the team is not that far from like growing easily, like they're not that far from my compete competitive weekend we go out, I feel like me an Arca team, right, I feel yeah, they used to be. Yeah, I think he stays with them for the next couple of years and if he's like a big Cup ride, Cup deal, whatever, then he'll speaking of Bret Moth is a placement God announced to it's chase pretty. I'm not a huge fan of that. Party was kind of underwhelming this year. He didn't do that any races, but he wasn't bad group. It's kind of needs so many better drivers you could have chosen and chase pretty. I'm saying he's not talented, but I don't know, I feel like they're better. There's, I think, one matter options out there. How old is Sam Sam Mayor now, because I feel like I've anually he and he's not eighteen yet. He won't be eighteen until like middle next season, the middle on that. But I'm saying it's I'm saying if party does badly, you can just replace them after well, for you'll probably go there's there's are already got the full seed in two thousand and twenty two. Is Happy Drive about and full two thousand and twenty two. Yeah, Uh Huh. You know, it's gonna be funny one day when he replaces Byron. Who that mayor say? I'm...

...mayor here. Yeah, okay, yeah, who want D Smith Smith could replace Saint Smith could replace mayor are now mere Irin Smith is going to need a few years. Gregson could replace needs first. He's like one year and experience because, like, he was from the top ten weekly when you did it part time. Yeah, there's a difference between part time and doing it every week. Yeah, are we did I miss any know? There's a jet Burton next. Yeah, Burd Burns the last one. I think that's a bad move, my opinion. I don't think Je Burns bad, but I think they should have gone with someone younger and just commit on two future. How old is he? He's not that old, but he's also not a future cup regular. Yeah, yeah, you might be a future trek regular, but like, his name might playper any he is is big sponsorship. He has like Olsh tractor and state water, hears plus like the nutrue whatever that calling here, grag solution. So and JEB's not like a bad driver. So it's like an easy like deal right there. That was set up. Yeah, that's my more of a writes from guy for Haley, but I don't know, Helen, should I go? They should have resided Joe Graph to crap. There was that's where it was really one ars. Oh my God, any he missed the race. Yeah, with R CRRCI and gem will make the playoffs. Then I'll get a limited first round. That's my prediction. Yeah, there's still a few solid guys, the next twenty that people are like writing off outside of me and Jones. He's not going to win the title, though, but anyway, Um, he could. He might. You might make fun before and then, but I think it would be syndric again, the final already. The final for the next year's going to be like Cyndric, gregs and Burton, Harrison and Jones. Jones could potentially Jones are Hemraic, I don't think. Or Haley. I really hope Haley doesn't make it. Haley could. Really doesn't have it. Haley doesn't have his team age back. I mean he does have teams, but he didn't have chash stain it back. Now it's not like chash. They really help them. I guess you did, but at the super speed ways he did. Yeah, but as long as you can push them, as long as chat stain doesn't recommending or for the win again, he should be fine. Yeah, taken almondinger almost had two wins on the ovals after a season review. Yeah, we can just rightful for the summer so we can take yeah, we're at the second. Arlington to Dington raised, daunton raised. The second done to racism. This all we have compared to the first one, it was pretty disappointing. Chase was the fastest cat wrecked out and rain. You arn't anymore cook six hundred. It was pretty boring. There was a rain delay in the beginning. That was like an hour or two, and there was didn't bowmen dominate that rate? Bowmen. And Yeah, the left really he led like the race were. Chase got screwed by the ice. Yeah. Yeah, hilarious, because RECAS I was kicking out the wind. Yeah, and then, and it's beautiful with that Beautiful Miller Light Scheme, that beautiful Miller Lights. Yeah, I don't know why I said it's beautiful. Like I has been running for seven years. Yeah, special, it was a special patriotic one. Yeah, the same, same patriotic. It's been. It's been wee. No, it's only been like those three years Tom in. Only three ones before them were garbage. There's too much going on on them. Yeah, come back, Millers. Now I have a problem with what was like two thousand and thirteen. You know, the one that you want Kentucky with that one year. Yeah, I like we cut his haunt. I like that one. All right. So second race it was. It wasn't that much better than to cook six hundred,...

...chase, dominate this like in half, I think most of it, and then keep one. Yeah, because it wasn't a caution. Michael McDowell, that's been on the final albough. So if only spared two laps earlier spring, Bristol is one of my favorite toy. will get that after this. Springs es really good because you had guys like Denny Johnson, Kyle Bush, she silly, and don't take Johnson like he was relevant. Today was won Harris. He was top five our race, top five hours. No Jim top five our race, but he wasn't much Bush, Elliet, Okay Amon. I'm one of those. I'm one of the cautions, one of the God one. On one of the green flag runs with like fifteen to go, he was actually the fastest on track and he was. He was right behind Kyle Bush and denny hand and Varmer in carn is going in into all seven time for lapt bradwins and then a such a good race. Guys. Highlight of that race was the corn scheme. The corns. Those are yeah, Tim and Boyer had the cords. That seems weird. Guys. All these born like the highlight is the painting. That is true. Michigan had the bullish with the right now car, so Atlantic kind of stucker. Martinsville, Martinsville one. It was like the first actual like night race. Yeah, I leave it. Remember at Nightsville and it was it was kind of boring. That's tricks. Only ever went by that. He won a season on. The interesting thing that happened was the Hamlin in the everyone going to lamp down within the first five lave? Yeah, I don't know. I thought it was pretty interesting when Blainey flipped off Legano down the back stretch. All that's where she said chokes by Lagano, because we'll go on a blog like gonna got back. He got back from Bristol because she's you know, we're back. Only time I was ever a Lagono Fan. Iver remember homestead. It was. It was any one as where. Reddick like right, yeah, blow down with one to go and then he had a speedo because he felt was the final at Oh, yeah, which, like he went from like second to like no, actually did watch? No, he went from fourth to fourth. He didn't. Yeah, he'Sion didn't. That's where he's running second. Know, his way ahead. He was way head. Was Right in front of them. Shit, it was chasing the Blaine in the run. anyways, palading it had a lot of good reason and and there was like not a lot of crashes and stuff like that. You know, Jimmy had his weekly spin, re spun himself and then probably kind of did too. Yeah, and then no, Ken's blue and engine. Yes, you know y'all. Therefore, camlame Kend. That's for that one. Okay, yeah, getting my photo finish polkados boring. I think it was like the first off, but now it was so surprised it was the first double hider. Want to watch a double hider, Harvard or Handlon One? I watch it. While we're on the paint scheme topic, Polcono had the Bush head for the mountains. Guys. Yes, not about that Schame. How would how many schemes did he have this year? I harbark Harvard has my whole top three out of five years. The HARRIK has two out of five true echoes to it. A fire and Jones is one out the fires. Which one was because auto owners was fine, but it wasn't. That's the shore. I don't want to share a strong I real eye that one. See the one at did you see at night? Well, I'll be and then the patriotic from angers. Good joke. James Small is just...

...a terrible crewchie. Yeah, yes, row, he'll call this king. Then it was so indeed. No one, no one could pass and handling Blueti superlow, tired. Kinds of feel so bad had such a down season. Well, y'all, like said, when there's when there's a Kansas ten second the saying, yeah, I wish you get this, I wish you could get pass. So can she's could have won. Maybe. No, Harvard was now it was the Harvard was good. Actually won his way into the playoff. Could have finished sixteen, O six. He wouldn't be. He would have been in the Benedetto. That's Oh, and Blanne, the Benedetto wouldn't have been in the playoffs. Yeah, that would have been several because he's trash, sick math kid. I don't think before. It's a Kentucky kind of shocked until the last few start shit ending. Yeah, John An, which I didn't spin that one time. Chris will have one that race, cyd Oh, here we go, here we go. I didn't even really race of Caden and going trick should wear every rays to a well, I mean tricks led the most lapsed. He won both stages before John Hundred Muche spun. He had a nine and a half second lead. That wasn't strategy. That was literally him just being the best he has. That thing from it until Jimmy Johnson got spun by bread has. Last John Lost Town for the eighty fourth week in a row and everyone just decided, you know, the package sucks, so we're just gonna let cold coster win. And Blade went up and hate Harvard. I've watched it. I can't. Texas equally socked. Texas is trash. Another big shot. He got. This was is garbage. Yeah, Texas totally deserves the All star race, just Texas deserves ever five. I don't care, because I don't care about all star race. I don't care about Texas that as well. All stories. Isn't even like bragging rice anymore. Like you? Yeah, you ever see a driver it's like, Yo, I won the All star race. How about you? I guess not. No one ever Brag Dragon the firstly. Yeah, it's nice about everyone's like, oh my God, the All Star Race, you get bragging rights. We gonna Brag a million dollars old other drivers on that. All Right, I'm bring my seen hours more than a million dollars a season. You're not going to brag about that. Tops one. Oh Red Execution. Yes, I think. Second Um, Kansas freest as died. Yeah, I forgot about I literally do not remember that at all. I I remember anything else from that race besides him on winning. I remember it was like Harveck lost the lead, but like seven ago, Hamlin Warren. Yeah, I'm complaible, liking. Yes, that's typically typical. Mask are two thousand and twenty more. Yeah, it sounds like twenty. AM on hard best. Oh, I remember new Hamshil, though, because I know zactly's there. Yeah, New Hampshire, because last night that's when, because as Ki's was everyone was like, oh my gods, lasky championship. Favorite only think I remember is the the insane battle between Hamlin, Blaney and Kez Laskian Stage one. There raised a lot of boring. I remember. I remember, boy, way you're dumping Johnson, garland. The race good. All right, Miss Again, skip, missus RFA carvajenred twice in one race. Well, let's not forget that breadcast. I was key lost town. I will trying to go for the leader to get pros to is that where he went to the inside and took out? Was it? We lany me. Let me go to the did a time, of...

...course, which was a fun race at the start, and then it kind of like got a little boring. Is never a fun race. It was rucklers doing no it was okay Christ the beginning no one knew what they were doing. It was fun, but then it got like everyone's done yet for three laps. The's finity race was probably the most entertaining race the weekend over was boring. The summer. I'm Rolla was in the way of true x and then John Salty Susan. That was a fun held on for second hay kind of which moves on to Daytona, because Dover's are roll in. Day tolda. They told it was they was an amazing race. William Barros if Haylan just pushed through act. I don't know what the issue was there. Hamlen just ditch truex, you would have won that race. To know what Hamlin doesn't do the whole team mate thing. Hanglin doesn't know what teammates are like. Even if it was like if it was either Alex Bowman or Kyle bullsh a teammate he's been with forever, handlon would choose Alex Bowman. Why? Because he's an idiot. I don't know. That's what you're going to go with. And then Darlingtoln was more Darlington. Oh yeah, the plass are said. And then Darlington honestly enjoyed to set the fat under even though, like, you couldn't you couldn't really pass, but it was like I can't walk. The next year, I like the you could have sounds like everyding. Do you think package next year is going to be so much better? By next year, do you mean two thousand and twenty, two or two thousand and twenty? Know, like next year, because they're running. They running in the run fifth of fifty horse power there. Yeah, they're doing the school played at Darlington. Facts. Yeah, nothing happened in the finish of Darlington, we can move on to Richmond. Yeah, Oh, you mean when tricks just like dove it in there and slam the sack. It was a racing yeah, it was. Okay, package is so bad to the point where you can't even pass. He slide out. He was like, if you know what, why didn't? I'm not saying they should a lift off, but truth only hit his quarter final, but like that much. It wasn't even that. It was because the cars are shit. People think that the cars are like godly and stuff. No, they're so arrow dependent at this point it's ridiculous. Richmond, right, yeah, Richmond, sir. Richmond was like an all right race, Brad Kake, but I thought it was pretty good. It was yeah, ricket down Austin dill, was it speak? It was really good. I thought Richmond was rich one was good personal night race. It came down to Harvard and Bush and it's also in great race. There's nothing. It was a it was a really solid race and I liked it. Nothing to really like Las Vegas. Bowman pretty much like had it in his hands and then a caution came out in the middle of pick cycles and Kurt Bush took the lead and says you can't pass with his package. He kind of like held on to the restart some one. Good for him, not good for one else. In the playoffs. What would the neck race Helada? How the day gay a completely as did when it was it was a crash that race. It was. It was a mess from the start and we should move on to Hamlin one. That was Charlotte Rovel was an all right race. It was cool and stage one wouldn't like tires matter and they recent the rain stuff like that. That was really cool. Tie Dylan, I'm Dylan mission, tied down a mission. Yeah, ambition of man was you don't even he still bought it. Now it's like guess for my guy. Yeah, he's could be the second spired driver. Maybe I don't really see it with it. They'll just give him the thirty one and URCR boy, if Dylan I remember was it?...

I've said this for your spoter that said tie dylan was looking like Lewis Hamilton at the end of that first yeah, yeah, it was. Bell was great. Well, I was just to say, Oh, are you going? Yeah, I think if Tydowan really can't find a ride, I think urcrs should split a third car with tie and cats were all the next year. See what the I just give it a tie. I'm only be deserves a cop right, but he definitely deserves a topic hard time. I don't see the issue with it. KNS of stock. If you pass this card, not we in the race. If you block and enough, then oh well, I mentioned my car. Text. There's one more lat tricks wide. The Texas was actually like, guess what may to them race, so don't better it was. Texas is a pretty go race for Texas nowadays. Time it was a good I like few miles finishes, because you don't see it that much with all the stages and all like these stupid cautions and stuff like that. So if you wage finish, I liked it. Kyle Bush. Finally, one in two thousand and twenty. anyways, we want to Martinsville. It was really good race, not being biased, racing wise is really good. I'm not saying this race was got awful to watch. It just it was pretty, wasn't it wasn't. It wasn't very exciting. This Week Martin the fall race was a million times better than the spring race. Phoenix wasn't all right race. It just didn't feel right. It was kind of bad. I wait and see ours, like kind of bad. It was like batty topic because they it wouldn't be considered so bad and they didn't hype it up so much. Well, he's a championship race. You gotta get a chap race. Yeah, like a championship. It didn't in the day. It's because it wasn't that night. Like yeah, three, favorite race of the season. Once her first Christ. All Right, okay, Christ. I didn't even think about this part because honestly, them across my mind. We're gonna go shameful. Third, will go to five hundred because, I mean, there wasn't really a lot of great races this season. Yeah, fact, summer was the cars, like there's like three great races, and there we could only pick three rag gary great races. Yeah, I'd say that the First Child Day Goo race, just because, like everything that went on with it. That's where Chris and I about out of the same top. Dud. I probably go bristol I race. Okay, I'm on my top. Go Bristol night race because of how it ended. Grow. Three is a day. Tell the five hundred number to his Talladega, who know? And Number One is the Daytona summer rings not the most. Mine is pretty similar to everyone's in my third. Third is the Bristol night race. Is Pretty good, pretty good. Seconds, the day town five hundred, and I thought it was actually a really good. Day One five hundred and first they can excited the season. The rest still let them. Yeah, wow, look at this pack. Reason really seasons to be so good. Even so, Vegas and Auto Club and Phoenix were all pretty good. Versus as well. I'm going and tell this. Easy would have been fine. I don't think so. I think. I think the boring tracks would have stayed boring. But no, because we wouldn't have the one Charlotte Ray's. You wouldn't have a would we would? As true, we wouldn't have double headers on Michigan and polk and Oo, I top three. Oh No, I don't like to look on his face. I like MoD shark. Charlotte won my heart's will too, and Phoenix, one or two. So, Um, we're going to start our F by start off with...

Daytona summer. Okay, sere, okay. Third. Second, I was something a spring. First is he's gonna pick fuck, going to say Bristol Spurs versus spring. It was even that good. It was the little good final forty laps. That was not I love the entire Reis for yeah, no, it wasn't. That all right. What's after that? Are we on the least favorite? Yeah, just one these favorite Michigan, Michigan either. Want. I don't mich again. FEENIX, definitely, games, SINCA hyped way too much text, texts. One Michigan, Texas, one that should be like unanimous Michigan should be Unan Michigan for sure. Most impressive drivers too. I heard who I had. Pick me. I can't prepare this why I got the notes I would. I can pick three. I have two of my I didn't have a third one. Yes, a, iile have to. Okay, my first one is Krick, pretty self explanatory. One was in nine races. Yeah, yeah, I mean I don't think people expected to win nine. People expect them to do well. And I would say the other one is Daniel Sworez. The season look like it's going to be bad when he didn't qualify for Daytona, but then eventually turned it around, and I mean especially since he was good. Gone brothers either really well and he earned his last the thing, I don't even know if the new teams to do it is going to be good or not, but they're going to be better. They're they're gonna basically really lying. They are. He earned it, he age, he earned a better there are a third, RCR Car Daniels, more as. I Oh, I thought you're talking about bubble wallaces. I don't know, pretty much bubble walls, not top three, most impressive anywhere. I Chase Iliad at number three, just because, I mean he won the championship. Can't say that's no impressive. Number two is sore Az. Sworez was really good. I mean it wasn't really good, but considering the fact that he is in a bottom tier team, to take that to what thirty, given props that and Kevin Rick, number one, nine wins. Sure you want to go over me, but, though, this is like not like an organized order where thought about it for long enough. I mean just three people. Take the reins sat. So number three is Tyler Reddick. He fell off from the second half of these are rookie. He fell fast. I half like ninety trecks fell off the whole. Dude. Okay, true, should have one outlet really three races. Number to Kevin. Kevin Harvard's number two. Nick, you want to go? Okay, where are you give a number number one. So, Um, right, can come. That's why we can see Christ and be all friends, you guys. Third, I'm gonna go Suarez, because he he did everything that people did not expect that he would do in that card and they, when you compared to last year that are any rays, blew it out of the water. He completed so many more he completed so many more laps and people even realize. Second, I'm going to go with I want to say chase, but chase, it's like, okay, chase that second, but because a championship be he had five wins, like we're still used to see him in three races and then not do anything in the round of Eight. So first, a part of me wants to say Harvard, because he had nine wins. By the same time, it doesn't because of the fact that we see him win seven, eight races in a season.

So everyone remove disappointing. Oh, I actually have three for this one number, the first, number three, I have Kyle Bush. Actually, no, I'm going to rearrange my order. Number three, I have John Hunter. Need to check just because I there weren't a ton of expectations for him coming in, but he's still spun how many times. He did way more than I think. Well, it was expected and he also had a terrible second half and a bad part first aff so yeah, overalls, disappointed with him. Number two I'm going to go kyle Bush. Obviously one win. I think people are definitely expecting him to get a lot more and you got his win late. And number one I'm going to say Ryan Blane, because I think people to expected growth from last year and he took a step back and he didn't do a whole lot to see I'll grow. I had number three as I don't. I don't know. I'm torn between Bush or NIMA check. Didn't have tons of expectations for Dama check. You didn't want him to die throughout seventy five percent of the races this season. And then it's either I'd say bushes. Third, I expected Bush to do so much better, but he only got one win and it was all fuel mileage. So He's third. I have standouts at second I expected stand us to do more. I mean he he did. He didn't even show for the plate tracks. He got the poll in the five hundred. I don't remember seeing him anywhere. He almost one TWA dig and he came in second to Blaney. Did He? Yeah, he was a one car. Did He win a stage? There you are, may one. You want to stay? Jet Day? I can't really forgot about that. Honestly. I felt like he was just relevant the whole season. Like I remember, was like how it's gonna it was base Tallada, Gun Daytona, just because I day. Tell me you got the poll. Yeah, I remember the second Taladagger race. He just spun on like lap for nothing happening. He's got hit the inside wall. And then number one, I have rhyme, blanney. He was just he took them. Not a massive stepback, but he started off really good and then he is didn't proceed to get better, he just got very worse. That's my coffree. I do feel bad for blade, though, just because the whole Darlington thing kind of set them up for failure in that round, especially with Richmond. So yeah, number three, hate on me if you want. Eric Jones, now that's fair. Okay, there are you know, don't did drive. It's back there. It's very fair, really bad. It just like it's very fair. I just think most the blame can be put on CHRISCAP. I just think we all agree he's not even cree chief. Who was the chief? Jones crew chief? Yeah, busy Creachs, I think, though. He I know he's right. Fund. Yeah, I was what to say. They should bring him back. Yeah, I think they did. Did they check? Check? Well, they know, try to keep going, to keep going. I'll get back once you're done. And then, and then there's the normal, like you guys say. Number two skyle Bush, it self explanatory, and Ryan Blaine's number one, since this his teammates got four winds and then like three in some like that, and blade out one win and a plate track and a lot of bad luck, a lot of bad runs. Okay there because he's in a goods card and finish wood seven pretty finish some points, not in the playoffs, in a gibbs car. Second is Blainey, because I'm just used to it at this point with him. And first is kind of Bush, because he went from like six or seven wins the season down to one...

...and it was the thirty fourth race of the season. So yeah, and well, my bell doesn't have a crew chief yet. All the gibbs crew chuice a so to be announced. I'm assuming I am the same. But no, I think Stephen is going with a nineteen. It's a long shot. Are Jones Actually fifteen and points? Yeah, at the end of the season like heading that, but he was it. He would have made the playoffs. Yeah, we weren't gone for no. Did you see his first round, though? He finished like top five in each race, I'm pretty sure. Don't consider a round of twelve far either. No, round of sixteen. Sorry, I know he would. I know he cans. He had a good run of sixteen, but he had a good round and round of twelve two. He would have only missed the player the round of a by like couple, like ten twenty points, which isn't bad. That's not a good he said Marshall and me, but it can still be made out of all right paint schemes. Now, yeah, all right, all right. Number Five, I have Suerez Mexico because I liked it and it look like a Chrisman's number. Four, Yanks. I've blamy Kobe because no one likes Byron Kobe number. So I have Bush apple for Harvard because I was Nice. Number two, I have Harvard National Forest Foundation. I was the one at the day come the road course because I liked it. And number one I have Harvac Bush head for the mountains. Do you want me to go? Number five I had tue x's boom indie car mean the ones that looked exactly no persons, the one that had the line through it already. Terrible. I hate you taken out of the pit thing. That's why nor remembers it, because you can't think you can't go through Indie pit road anymore. It looks like that's two years in a row. We can't go through it straight, straight line, straight line, straight line straight hey try. He was in the back of a bunch of a lasers named Cojo. Moving on, number four is Kevin Harvick's fourth of July paints game. I really like that paint scheme, but it wasn't enough to crack the top three. Third is, I know, my top thing. I just don't know what order to put the man I'm going to say number three is true x Sherry strong. That thing under the lights I was doing with a little bit of greed on the bay was nothing the different. He's a little bit of gree on back that. I think. I'M gonna lie. Look, you have that color Colormo was terrible. It's like they just drew a live like why ack of the car and said, okay, new color time. Number two is the National Forest Foundation car. That was just beautiful. And number one is Eric Jones auto owners pain scheme. All that was so nice. Oh, oh, how is this beautiful and light of Bristol and Antona? Okay, so number five is Alex Boman's Patriotic Schem around cook six hundre it. That wasn't it was a really good scheme. At first I kind of like trashing on it, but now it's like it's actually really cool. Scheme. Number four is Kevin Harberg, this pictriotic indie scheme thatty one with. I was a really good scheme. I trashed and that too when it first came out, like this is too much, but it's amazing. You Trash on everything. Yeah, I just need a guarantee me time to like process it to Myma. Number number three, he might is herpect's Bush Apple. Harvard Bush Apple Scheme is number three. The really it's really Um. Number two Chris quaker. Number number two is Garrett Smith Ley's axcel or whatevercom that was...

...so mood. That is that was not made. Is Literally did a great car with a bit of tea deal. Well, that's like the D it looks good mid but behind that's nine number two. It's really nice, granted indie. I think number one is dinosaurs, patriotic seam your ands coo six hundred. That when I could give a pass to but I could not give it pass into being first. We want to save mine for last. To do. Want to have a man to go first, and he can. So I didn't really put mine in a specific order. I just wrote them down. So Jimmy Johnson's final ride, I really like that. Kevin Harbick, the indie patriotic one. Ryan blamy's strawberry body armor, which Troy told me was terriff terrible. I thought it was great. His opinions are okay. Troyken's tree read or right, it's true, William Byron's priory at Salta and but like his actually just basic. Yeah, it's just looks like that's boring. That's a want to be Jeff Gordon to her. Okay, well, look I wrote down another one because I had a feeling you would trashed me for that, so I wrote down another one to replace that. I'll probably flavor your replacement. That's fine, that's fine. He's not wrong. Jimmy Johnson's throwback scheme, which troy just informed me I can't have throwback schemes, but I liked it. And then to place, I William Byron one, chase late's pink cooter's car. Dude, that was literally all black, like a line of black. Okay, but it was clean. It was I guess I'll go. My fifth one was great because one car, the like gray one with the mother Red Fade. Yeah. Fourth one, Swarz, is the patriotic exicon heritage month scheme and a go it right on, Rob Bran. Oh, okay, I thought you were talking about the one that try really liked as a picture. No one knows like that one. Third is tyler red ex motor trend scheme. which ones that you can right at Martin's like I'm gonna remember what it was. The second Martin Zone. It wasn't that good. He's completely relevant, just mostly read with some black. That wasn't good. Second was second was perfects Bush Apple Scheme. Also the number one play, number one, and then I knew what. I know what. It's so obvious number one. Number one has like too much like outside of Nascar for me. So like. That's why number one is Ryan Blaine's auto club, Ra's Kobe body armor scheme. That scheme was beautiful with the scales in the yellow to Purple Fade and how they incorporated everything and it's so well and how a Troy's opinion on this car is complete trash and is a travesty that he even has a bad opinion about this car. was any running second and then how to pit with two to go, the very Pasi Blue Tire. It didn't blow. It corded okay, and tigger down. It's so quick. Final thoughts of the season at Don I'm it was it was two thousand and twenty. I think we can sum it up to that. It's just hope we start off the season. You know, it's probably because we had a two bit of a day to five on it. That's probably wire season went so bad. I drive almost died of we got too much gas. Can't feel like you know it. Just for that. I'll save your driver but you're gonna have a terrible rest of the season.
