Seems like being teammates, the 2 should have the same package and setup as the 22, especially when week after week the 22 is in contention.

Brad has looked like he had a shot in maybe 4 races since mid July.

Any ideas on how that can be?
Just guessing but maybe the 22 team is just better then the 2 team including drivers.

Leigh Diffey. He works for the network NBCSN that broadcasted today's race.

Why not? He is one of the best, most knowledgeable commentators in the business. As a worldwide racing sports commentator I think he adds prestige to little 'ol Xfinity Racing.

Honestly, never heard of him. Finally had to google him. Ill agree he has excellent credentials, but I guess the Aussie accent just doesn't sound right with a "traditionally" American sport.

Diffey is knowledgeable but I've never been able to stand listening to him. His voice is grating or something. And it's not the Aussie accent which I'm used to and like. Maybe it's personality, dunno. One of those things. lol

I finally get to see a race again. Now that it's back on an actually network and not some garbage cable only channel no one wants. I really hope 'Dega is on a network.

Second verse, same as the first. (substitute Kansas for Charlotte)

Logano is the only one who can breathe this Sunday. Hamlin.. Unless he finishes 30th or worse, is pretty much OK, I think.. Outside of that.. It's white knuckle time.

Earnhardt and Kenseth are in must win situations. And both are pretty dang good plate racers. This will be 3.5 hours on the edge of your seat, I think.
