    Interesting remarks by Richard Petty regarding the number 9 for Chase Elliott. Now, they question is, does HMS go forward with plans for the NAPA 24 car, or strike a deal and get the 9 for Chase Elliott to use in 2016?

    It comes down to the sponsor. If they've already got a bunch of branding and advertising for one car# they may not allow a number change unless HMS is willing to pony up the funds to completely reprint everything. I know another driver that went through this. Wanted a number change for personal reasons and ultimately the sponsor said no. Said they signed up for a multi-year deal with a specific number and they already had x amount of money poured into advertising for 3 years worth of promotions and they weren't changing.

    Well, that is true, but I don't think there's any NAPA 24 stuff anywhere yet. Maybe late summer or fall we may see what it'll be, though. I like the thought of him keeping Papa Joe's 25.

    I like the 2015 scheme. Hopefully he'll keep it when he goes full-time.

    Can't say that I'll miss Jeff Gordon any. He has been a meh to me for some years now. Can't even muster up the chutzpah to dislike him the way I once did.

    Had this been about the Jeemy I would be dancing a jig on the start finish line at Charlotte.

    You knew it would happen but now it's official. No more playing with the side skirts unless it's been damaged and is getting into the tire.

    I can't wait! I don't know if it's possible but it's been both a long and short off-season.
