    The Official NASCAR 2015 Thread

    Can't believe we're sneaking up on another season. I was in an unnamed shop today. Chassis's for the Daytona cars are done and bodies are hung and assembly will start on Monday. After about 6 weeks away it was nice to see the mills/presses/brakes waiting to go and racks of parts awaiting a new season!

    I'll post this in here since my thread was a victim of another "rollback".

    "Jeff Gordon to cease full-time driving after 2015 Sprint Cup season"

    http://www.foxsports.com/nascar/stor...rsports-012215

    I became a NASCAR fan in the mid 90's, with the exception of clips of some of the old races, I've never watched a live NASCAR race that Jeff wasn't a participant in.

    Holy smokes time goes fast! Seems like his rookie season was just a few years ago.

    I think we all saw this coming.

    Chase Elliot will take over the #24 Chevrolet SS for Hendrick Motorsports in 2016.

    "Chase Elliott, who became the youngest national series champion in NASCAR history last season, will join Hendrick Motorsports as a full-time Sprint Cup driver beginning in 2016. Elliott’s No. 24 Chevrolet SS team will be led by crew chief Alan Gustafson, who has earned 19 wins, 18 pole positions, 98 top-five finishes and 165 top-10s at the elite Cup level."

    So are they going to run direct injection without those plates anytime soon? How about a Car based Chassis? Like Force Toyota to use their stupid Camry.

    What? And have GM use the SS and Ford use the Fusion? Something tells me it won't hold up hitting the wall at 190mph.

    The correct driver won it last year. Hopefully, that happens again, no matter who it may be. Larson was really strong at the end of the year. Anybody but JJ!

    That car was sponsored by Clorox.

    The car was sponsored for most of the 2013 season (if not the entire season). He was already a development driver for Ganassi and ran with several of JPM and Jamie Mac's sponsors from Cup in addition to Turner-Scott's usual sponsors.
