I like the sound of the race.

Battle of the hot shot young guns.

As Xfinity should be.

Byron has to come good soon.

How do you think this track will suit him Jay?

Looked up byron's truck results. Looks like he definitely likes the 1.5 mile type tracks. That might have a lot to do with equipment. Others could correct me if I'm wrong, but I think those tracks are the most biased towards the top teams.

wins: kansas, texas, iowa, kent, poc, nh, home

I like him. He finished 4th in Trucks last year as a rookie and I think his driving style is good for rhythm/momentum type tracks. I wish he had a little more experience to have more data. Nevertheless, I think he will run well.

Yes, definitely 1.5 mile has some bias to equipment. No doubt it helped him but he also won 7 races so let's not look past that. The stuff I like for this week is: 3rd at Martinsville, 1st at Iowa, 4th at Bristol, and 8th again at Martinsville. That is pretty strong from a young guy that had never raced on those surfaces on tracks where the driver can make up a lot of the lap speed. I think he is a great talent overall everywhere but he definitely has some sleeper value on the short tracks
