What’s wrong with Kyle Busch? Lack of practice time? New crew chief? Also, Harvick has not been very good so far
There is a combination of things with Kyle Busch and Mr Bill already mentioned them.

I have an explanation for Kevin Harvick. There are 2 things to look at.

Kevin actually has a good season this year compared to his teammates. He has 2 top 5's and 6 top 10's. The laps led are not there though. They are down compared to his past standards. Almirola, Briscoe and Custer does not have a single top 10 yet this year. There is a talent difference that is showing this year. Briscoe and Custer are not that experienced in cup and lack of practice has hurt them. Almirola has been a streaky driver ever since he went to Stewart-Hass. Kevin is carrying the organization. I don't think having Bowyer instead of Briscoe would have helped much. Bowyer was on the decline as a driver.

I know Tony Stewart wanted Kyle Larson because he can carry equipment better than it should, but Ford overruled him. I think Stewart did not want 2 drivers without a lot of experience. I know Cole is a 2nd year driver, but does not have a lot of practice time. Cole as a talent before last season to me was not on the same level as Christopher Bell.

The equipment is really down. I question if Stewart-Hass is focusing more on next gen car since it comes out next year or could be what Mr. Bill mentioned about Tony being spread out.

Superstar Racing Experience announced Hailie Deegan as a driver. I'm guessing she's the replacement for Mark Weber. Mark to my understanding has the issue of traveling during Covid-19.

I know she's an upcoming driver that is doing the truck series this year full time. Hailie right now is trying to do the dirt to asphalt transition. She won championships before she turned 18 years old.

Don't feel bad. Blame NASCAR and Texas Motor Speedway for this. I know NASCAR all-star races have gimmicks, but this a mess.

I'm happy they didn't mess with the NASCAR open format, but the all-star race is yikes. T

When I first read this, I thought NASCAR had too many gimmicks for the all-star race itself and had too many segments/rounds in the all-star race. There is no need for an all-star having 6 rounds/segments. I hope the amount segments the all-star race has does not give NASCAR any ideas for increasing amount of segments in a regular cup race.

The only thing I could think of with the amount of gimmicks is they are trying to give Texas Motor Speedway an interesting race, but I question if it really would work.

Legendary race car driver and Emmy Award winning broadcaster Bobby Unser died at the age of 87. He was a 2 time Indycar champion and a 3 time Indy 500 champion. He also is part of a famous racing family. The Unser family won a combined 9 Indy 500 races and over 100 Indycar races.

He did race in NASCAR for 4 races that includes 2 top 5 finishes. He raced in my dad's era and Bobby Unser was one of the drivers he met at the Milwaukee Mile back in his teenage years.

I never saw him race live, but I remembered him for announcing races when I was growing up.

RIP to a legend in Auto racing.

Superstar Racing Experience announced race format and points format and how starting line up will be handled.

The Starting lineup for heat race 1 is by random draw. The 2nd heat race starting lineup will be determined by inverting the finishing order of the first heat. The starting lineup of the 100 lap feature would be determine by the finishing order of the 2nd heat race.

Each of the 6 race tracks on the schedule will have heat races and Features. I know Stafford Motor Speedway will have 2 heat races and a feature race.

The points system is by heat races and feature races.
Each heat winner gets a max of 12 points. How the points go in heat races is by finish order such as 2nd place gets 11 points and 3rd gets 10 points as an example.

The feature race for points is the winner gets 25 points, 2nd place gets 22 points, 3rd place 20 points, 4th place 18 points, 5th place 16 points, 6th place 14 points, 7th place 12 points, 8th place 10 points, 9th place 8 points, 10th place 6 points, 11th place 4 points, and 12th place 2 points.
