I hope Newman takes his WC spot in the chase.

Newman will make the chase on his own. He has a big sponsor on the hook and NASCAR isn't going to let that go. They want him on a team for next year.

Bummer. It's going to open the door for others to make the chase in his place.

I wonder if some of these drivers regret racing non-NASCAR events. When they get injured in them, it really impacts their effort on the cup side.

Right now with Smoke out it does put Newman in the Wild Card spot with Truex. It's going to be an interesting 5 weeks to the chase.

Now he knows how Sterling Marlin felt the year Stewart won his first championship

Don't get me wrong...It does suck for Stewart, but maybe he will wake up and realize that it's not all about him.

I agree with you racingfan20. Thats why CUP DRIVERS shouldnt be in nationwide races. Or I should say another reason.
