That makes a lot of sense. Have they put JJ in a booth during Xfinity races? If not that would give him a chance to see how he does.

Looks like Daniel Suarez will have a ride this season and will compete in the Cup Series for Gaunt Brothers Racing, which will move to a fulltime team for the first time in its existence. A step down for him, but at least he will be racing and maybe get a better ride in 2021.

Harvick or Bowyer are both good on the Xfinity telecasts. I don't think I've ever heard JJ.

He's a less exciting Jeff Gordon. And that's one of the knocks on Gordon.. He's not overly excitable.


I mean, you can tell Larry Mac and DW and even Jeff Burton, who ought to be one of the most boring people ever.. Genuinely get excited and it carries through. Gordon, always seems like forced excitement. Johnson, when he's called a race.. It's always sounded very bland.

Knows what he's talking about, but..

Absolutely agree.. Of course.. You'd be able to tell Ward apart.
