That is kind of the idea of the new 2021 car to help cut owner costs with the body panels and other prefab pieces so teams don't have to build cars from scratch from the ground up.

I also agree with all the field size talk. it was pretty dramatic tv when Alonso was trying to make the 500 this year or the same with Hinchcliffe the year before. It is part of the sport of racing.

The qualifying format that they have in the Truck series right now works perfectly, more often than not, Although I do think we need to ensure that the fastest cars make the race. Tullman was literally 40 seconds off in practice at Mid-Ohio (because they had the Intermediate car). That shouldn't be aloud, even if we don't have a full field at that point

Unfortunate, considering that it does seem like Matt is hitting his stride and putting together some good runs.
Personally, my best case scenario is he keeps it, Bell to the 20, and Jones steps back into the Xfinity series or finds another ride.

I hope he gets a ride if this comes true but who?? He doesn't bring sponsor dollars with him and everyone else seems to have their lineups set. The only way he could get a quality ride would be a team starting up another car and without the sponsor money no one will do that.

The one thing I could see but I don't know if Matty D would go for it is a full-time ride in a Gibbs Xfinity car maybe replacing Bell in the #20. With no up and comer from KBM trucks if Bell moves up there is a championship ride open. Again not sure Matt would want to drop down a series but it may be his best option.

I feel like Bell will stay in the 95 until Denny's contract expires. Jones is still good enough to stay in Gibbs IMO.

I like Erik, but he just hasn't put together a stellar resume with Gibbs yet in the 2 years (62 races overall) he's been with the team. Only 1 win, 2 poles - the only decent stats are the 17 top 5's and 30 top-10's. I know the kid's got skill but on paper, he's lacking. Denny in the last 3 years may only have 5 wins (3 this year), but he's got 37 top 5's and 54 top 10's.

Personally, I think we'd see Erik out the door a little faster than Denny, but you never know.

Sadly, this is my issue with the 4 team max limit rule. Not enough rides but plenty of talent upcoming.
If JGR, HMS, hell, ANY team has the ability to field 5, 6, or even 7 cars, LET THEM.
Agreed.

I'd rather see 7 competitve Gibbs car on track rather than 4 Gibbs, a decent LFR car, and then some shitty teams 2 seconds off pace. Maybe I'm being harsh but, oh well.
