    Default Davenport Off Lucas Tour?????

    So Iím reading Kyle Busch is his team mate at Bristol next month . Same days Lucas in Ohio and Indiana. Sorta said 5 bad races and you quit on a series. Shows less faith in your confidence to come back and win.

    I I figured that there would be more than one too many big races.

    In the Lucas series donít you have to run all the races or make a reasonable attempt to make it to all the shows in order to get the tow money each night? I thought the only exceptions were for things like deaths in the family, hauler breaking down, etc.

    I doubt Landers counts on tow money. The chance to race Bristol may never happen again

    Its more than just Bristol, its 3 shows that pay $50k each to win with the possibility of a bonus.

    I said it earlier. Those big payday shows are going to make guys re-evaluate there schedules. Superman has shown he's not running as well as some of the other longhorn teams. You have these 3 big payday shows, you have eldora possibly running back to back worlds and dream races. This isn't taking into consideration that they can pick and choose between lucas and woo races. I won't be surprised to see some other top teams take this route also. The money is good for the sport but it can also hurt both traveling series. 2021 may be the year of pic an choose racin coming your way.

    I agree there are 10 races that pay 40 grand or more to win even if eldora don't run.

    It's starting to remind me of CBR, a team with mucho resources and "meh" hit/miss performance. Hmmm? If the cars are kept in wherever, (Arkansas I think) but I'm not sure and Davenport is living in what, North Carolina. Maybe the problem lies with whoever is setting up the cars... Everybody(pretty much) knows JD can wheel a DLM, but apart from when Rumley sets up the cars the performance seems to meander down hill. Just look at CBR, the absolute best of the best went thru there with only 1 championship and that was with Barry Wright himself tuning that car. Everyone else struggled and left to do better things with less. Brandon Overton is spot on everywhere he goes without a Rumley, McCreadie runs good too, but JD flounders when he should be dominating. If I'm wrong I'm wrong, but this seems to be an issue at several seemingly high profile teams. I'm pretty sure its why Madden left Rum Runner so quickly as well. If the crew chief and driver arent in sync or there is a power struggle over who knows whats best, it'll never work like it should. Clue me in if I'm far afield, but that's what I see and suspect.
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.
