The Michael McDowell signing affects Zane Smith. Zane Smith is currently the driver of the 71 car.

As far as Zane Smith goes, I do have a little bit of information on him. The reason he's with the 71 car this season is due to Spire Motorsports got him on loan from Trackhouse Racing. Also Spire and Trackhouse has an alliance for Zane Smith only.

As far as Zane Smith's future, I have no idea. All it shows is he'll either be at Trackhouse Racing or he got loaned out to another race team on the cup side. As far as Trackhouse, they don't have a 3rd charter for Zane that I'm aware.

Fox sport's 1 NASCAR show, Race Hub will end after June 11th. The show has been around since October 12th, 2009.

As far as Front Row Motorsports, its way too soon to speculate for replacing Michael McDowell. The only thing that is known is at least Love's is staying as a Sponsor for the 34 car. That means, they are going to run 2 cup teams. I know Front Row Motorsports does take chances on young drivers based on their history, but they also could pick up a current cup driver.

NASCAR announced a In Season tournament for 2025 with the winner gets a million dollars. The tournament will not be used for crowning a cup champion. This tournament is only for gaining extra money.

How it works is the following:
  • Seeding races which will take place during the final three races of Prime Video’s coverage of the NASCAR Cup Series.
  • There will be 32 drivers in the tournament.
  • Bracket seeding will be established by best finish in each race over the three races with the tiebreakers determined by the next-best finish, followed by season points position.
  • The Tournament will be happening for the 5 cup races that will be on TNT Sports.
  • Drivers will be eliminated bracket style.

The three NASCAR races he'll be an analyst for are Coke Zero 400 at Daytona Super Speedway on August 24th, Yellawood 500 from Talladega Speedway on October 6th, and I believe the Phoenix race.

I read information that might be connected to Trackhouse and Zane Smith. Trackhouse is trying to get 1 or 2 more charters. How they are trying is rumored I rather not name organizations till it is announced.

What I will mention is there have rumors about Trackhouse buying a current cup organization or buying charters from a current cup organization. This is likely connected to Zane Smith because Trackhouse has Zane Smith under contract and he can't be loaned to Spire Motorsports for next year.

Kyle Larson made to the final round of qualifying for the Indy 500 with it happening tomorrow. He was 6th in qualifying today.

Indy 500 qualifying is different than What NASCAR has. Indy 500 Qualifying has each car do 4 straight qualifying laps. Your position depends on the average of the 4 laps. Also you can attempt the 4 lap run as many times as you want depending on where you are in line for getting on the track and that means you can wave off times as a result.

I did not see the qualifying on tv because it is on Peacock. As far Kyle Larson goes, his speed happened on his 2nd try at 4 laps. What happen to his first try is Kyle Larson has some type of a fire with the engine and the same thing happened to one of his teammates based on what I read.

I found out something as Kyle's problem in Indycar yesterday, it is not a team problem. The problem Kyle had in Indycar also happened to other Indycar organizations that use Chevy. A total of 6 cars had the same problem is Kyle Larson had

The only catch is it didn't happen to Penske is Indycar yet. Before someone is wondering, Penske does run Chevy in Indycar despite running Fords in NASCAR. Penske has ran Chevy's in Indycar for many years.

As an update for Kyle Larson for Indy, he made it to the final 6 qualifying today with him 5th fastest. The final round for Indy 500 qualifying will happen last today.
