Freaky Fast!  I think gaining Ford's support is going to pay off bigly for SHR this season.

I agree.... Hendrick was done giving lots of support to SHR... and GM was not going to help SHR directly.... Ford was an obvious choice.....

The amount of commercials in these races are a big part of the viewership problem, IMO.

Agree somewhat, but they got to pay the bills.

Absolutely.  But that is the even bigger problem...It's a fad sport that outgrew it's core fanbase and became a "star event" that has overpaid for everything (drivers included) in the process.  Now the "cool" is wearing off and they are left with tons of empty seats at every venue and decreased viewers.

Hendrick will always get the lions share of support from GM and that is huge. The rest of the Chevy teams pretty much got the crumbs divided up amongst them. Furniture Row realized this early once they got some hard won success with Kurt & Truexjr behind the wheel. They realized they could compete but to grow and succeed they saw a manufacture jump was going to have to be made.  SHR finally saw through the smoke (no pun intended) that if they were going to continue to get better and stabilize as a top tier team they would have to do the same. No doubt with Roush in a downward spiral Ford was more than happy to oblige SHR into their fold.

Both the Roush cars had good weekends.   Ran much better than last year.

Concentrating resources to just 2 teams seem to be paying dividends.

It is early but if they can do it again this week at Vegas it will show they are legit contenders for the chase.  Of course this stage bonus point scenario is going to make for huge point swings.

I still think it is total BS to count caution laps between the stages though.

I think at the end of the 2nd stage, you bring all cars down to the pits and give them 5-10 minutes to make their adjustments and pit stop.  Line them up in order of stage 2 finish and then start the final.

I think they should get back to what racing used to be, get rid of all the stages and race.

Eh, I agree.  However, Harvick would have lapped every car in the field last Sunday.
