    Talking In Circles: Off Season News & Notes, Silly Season News

    in Sports

    On this episode of Talking In Circles we break down what the Daytona 500 and what it has meant to the sport and to us as race fans, piggybacking on Larry McReynolds' article about his Daytona 500 victory. 


    Sprint Unlimited Drivers have been announced. We'll discuss if this race has lost any luster and what can be done to help generate more interest and NASCAR's horrible thought process that a lot of cars creates great racing. 


    Also Rico Abreu will be running in the Truck Series in 2016 driving the No. 98 Toyota for ThorSport Racing. He will run for Rookie of the Year and it will be interesting to see how he does. No doubt he can get it done on dirt, we'll see on asphalt. He's going to have an opportunity. 


    Richard Petty Motorsports has a number change for the 2016 season. Brian Scott will be No. 44 instead of No. 9 in 2016. We'll give our thoughts on that. 


    Ray Black Jr will move to the NASCAR XFINITY Series with SS/Greenlight Racing. No. 07 Scuba Life Chevrolet. We'll give our thoughts on that. 


    Love's Travel Stops will return to Front Row Motorsports with Driver Chris Buescher running 18 races for the company. 


    Also racing will return to Rockingham Speedway after about a two hiatus. It looked like it was going to fall again but there is talk NASCAR may return there for 2017. 


    Denny Hamlin's Short Track Showdown has been canceled after problems with Langley Speedway. It's swapped tracks over the years. Should racing be concerned after that?
