OK, so what about JJC's resume disqualifies her? She's turned a lot of laps at Daga.

My take of what I read is that while yes she has laps at 'Dega they are not recent enough to automatically qualify her entry. She would have been required to resubmit her experience along with the entry. I don't know that that happened.
If it had been in a Hendrick or Gibbs car we wouldn't be talking about this. It's been a very long time since Rick Ware's name has been mentioned.

I don't know her resume. IMO she's the one who is willing to do it. But the rule, and the rulebook, are there for a reason. The rules are for all drivers,....even Kyle Busch. When in doubt, I apply vector analysis.

Regarding rules for Texas All Star. Kyle Busch loves re-starts and inverted starts.

Didn't watch the race but a Hendrick sweep of the top 4 at Dover? Impressive......

Yes it was. The 48 did the fastest pit stop timed this year. If they hadn’t of done that I’m pretty sure the 5 would have won. Those 4 cars were amazing.

If you thought it was stupid to have the cars skidding all over the place in the rain near Austin,.....

I-20 in Weatherford has more wrecks, including some to match Martin Truex's hit, in the rain today.

I LOVE Texas weather.

The purebread Texans deserve it, and those like me who moved here deserve to suffer.

I finally got around to watching the COTA race yesterday. I'm thinking the experiment with rain tires may be over. Somebody could have gotten killed.
Cole Custer coming out of that car in front of oncoming cars was scary. Luckily that following driver saw him in time and swerved to the other side of him.
I can see the rain tires on a banked track where water can flow downhill but NASCAR messed up on this in my opinion.

Tires were meant to run on a wet track, not a river.
