There has been plenty of news to keep a NASCAR fan happy over the last few days and Talking in Circles will cover it all tonight!
Perhaps the biggest news came from Roush Fenway Racing on Tuesday where the organization announced their crew chief lineup for the 2015 season. We'll break down who goes where and what that means for each team.
Also announced Tuesday that Dakota Armstrong will be back at RPM in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2015. Armstrong struggled in the 2014 season but will look to turn things around.
Monday saw a cagey veteran in Eric McClure get hired to race full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for JGL Racing. Jay Guy will be the crew chief in 2015. The team also announced that JJ Yeley will drive the No.28 Toyota for the team.
Guy worked at Front Row Motorsports, where Donnie Wingo will call home in 2015. Wingo came from the Wood Brothers and will crew chief David Gilliland's No. 38 Ford next season. No word on David Ragan's crew chief or if the team will expand to three teams as expected.
Daniel Knost is Danica Patrick's crew chief for 2015. Big year for Danica and Knost and it'll be an interesting pairing to see how they will do with each other.
Also Godfather Motorsports is reporting that Tommy Baldwin Racing may form a partnership with Jay Robinson Racing to run his No.36 car in 2015. More details on the show.
Also taking your phone calls!
On tonight's episode, Brandon and Clayton give their opinions on the latest Silly Season news coming out of NASCAR.
Cole Whitt's deal with Front Row Motorsports was officially announced. ARCA's most succesful driver ever, is on the move but to a rival. In the Xfinity Series, JD Motorsports has announced the signing of driver, Harrison Rhodes to run full-time for them in 2015. Carl Long Racing announced that Derek White will drive their Dodge at Daytona. In the Camping World Truck Series, Tyler Young returns to the seat of the Young's Motorsports Chevy and Brandon Jones will run 16 races for GMS Racing.
After that they'll discuss 4 driver topics, and pick the driver that they think will fit that bill the most. The four topics will be Comeback Driver of the year, A driver who they feel will be the driver who retracts the most. The most surprising driver of 2015, and a driver who we feel will be the most disappointing driver in 2015.
Plus, your phone calls, tonight on Talking in Circles.
On tonight's episode of Talking in Circles; we preview the Championship race as we break down all 4 drivers going for the title.

Also, we'll go back in NASCAR to November 10, 1996, at Atlanta Motor Speedway where a pair of brothers shared the spotlight as one won the race, and the other won the championship.
And, we'll talk about possible crew chief changes taking place at Hendrick Motorsports. Will this guy be the only shoe to fall, or will there be more, at the end of the year.

Brian Vickers has been cleared to race, starting with the third race of the season in March at Las Vegas. A surprising move considering it looked grim for Vickers earlier in the offseason. Michael Waltrip will drive the No.55 Aaron's Dream Machine Toyota at Daytona for the Daytona 500, making his 27th start in that race. No word on the driver of the No. 55 at Atlanta. |
Michael Annett appears to be headed to HScott Motorsports as a teammate to Justin Allgaier. Interesting move for Annett who finished 33rd in points for Tommy Baldwin Racing in 2015.
Also Brian Scott will drive in the Daytona 500 for RCR in a No. 29 Chevrolet.
Also Jeremy Clements returns to the Xfinity Series for 2015, and JD Motorsports may have 3 full-time entries in the Xfinity Series next season.

Tonight on Talking in Circles we discuss the state of the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Where will the NASCAR Xfinity Series be in 10 years and who will be running in it? Who will own the cars in the series? Can the series get better?
Also we discuss the young driver dilemma. What does it take to get to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and where are some of NASCAR's best young stars going to race in the 2015 season. There are a lot of young drivers but not a whole heck of a lot of rides open, what does that mean? Also which young drivers are better than others?
We also discuss the latest news in NASCAR. Ben Kennedy joins Red Horse Racing, Bubba Wallace officially joins Roush Fenway Racing driving the No. 6 Ford for the team.
Also the ARCA Racing Series tested from the Daytona International Speedway this weekend. Who was fastest and what young kids are in that series that we could see running in NASCAR one day.

On tonight's episode of Talking in Circles we talk about a high profile crew chief, Slugger Labbe, currently crew chief of Paul Menard's number 27 team, moving up at Richard Childress Racing. Labbe, has had a great deal of success with Menard, including Paul's first Sprint Cup Series win in 2011 at Indianapolis. He moves on to an R&D role with the team, and Justin Alexander will take over for Labbe.
Also, Regan Smith is now back at JR Motorsports for 2015. Smith, a former Sprint Cup Series driver, has spent the last two seasons in the Nationwide Series with JR Motorsports. Is Regan Smith the first chip to fall. Where do the other veteran drivers go now? Elliott Sadler?
Also, veteran Mike Ford will move on from BK Racing and become a crew chief in the NASCAR Nationwide Series with Athenian Motorsports, the family owned team for John Wes Townley. Mike Beam used to be the cc there, no word on where he's going.
This week in NASCAR history takes us back to September 30, 1990, when a young and up and coming driver Robby Moroso was tragcially killed in a car accident after the race in North Wilkesboro. Moroso was crowned rookie of the year in 1990, even though he wasn't there to accept the award. We'll talk about the legacy of Robby Moroso and how he helped pave the way for the "young guy."
Also, we'll do our Kansas preview and give you our predictions.
Talking In Circles 12-13-14
NASCAR’s New Testing policy
Todd Parrott joins RCR as Xfinity Series Director-
Good for him to battle back from a suspension for a banned substance. IMO- he’s one of the top 5 minds in the garage area and this move ALONE puts Ty Dillon as the favorite to win the NXS championship in the 2015 season. That’s how good Todd Parrott is. He worked with TBR last season and did a hell of a job.
Allgaier staying at HScott Motorsports/HScott Motorsports and Chip Ganassi form alliance in NXS.- Veteran Mike Shiplett will crew chief the No.42 Chevrolet in NXS with drivers Kyle Larson and Dylan Kwasniewski.
Bobby Labonte will run plate races for Fas Lane Racing- Broke on this show a few weeks ago by Dominick Aragon but confirmed this weekend by Catchfence.com. Labonte will run 4 plate races with Frank Stoddard as cc. C&J Energy Resources will sponsor. Also sounds like Austin Theriault may be the leading candidate to drive the other races. Definantly sounds like it’s going to be a young kid with sponsorship. Boris Said will run both road races.
Cale Conley to run full-time for Tri-Star Motorsports- Young 22 year old driver Cale Conley will drive the full season in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for Tri-Star Motorsports. Conley made 11 start for RCR last season and recorded 1 top ten finish in those 11 starts. Interesting move.
Hornaday out of Trucks- Sounds like Ron Hornaday Jr will not run trucks in the 2015 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. He will return to his roots and build chassis for late stock cars. Thoughts? Hornaday has 360 starts in trucks with 51 wins and 4 championships. Gonna miss the guy. He is Mr. Truck Series. Hall of Fame?
On tonight's show we review the silly season/off season before the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season. There have been plenty of moves with drivers and crew chiefs moving on, and going in different directions.
Some of the biggest moves are out of the Ford camp, Carl Edwards, the former face of the manufacturer and team, is now gone and to Toyota at Joe Gibbs Racing. His replacement is former hot shot young driver, Trevor Bayne. We'll discuss this move, among others from this season so far, and who may regret these moves after.
We'll discuss everything about the world of NASCAR including the Bubba Wallace situation. Wallace was recently released from his contract at Joe Gibbs Racing and several reports have him heading to Roush Fenway Racing. We'll discuss whether or not Wallace is making a good move and why he would even consider moving from one of NASCAR's elite teams.
Plus the Joe Gibbs Racing's crew chief lineup and how that will impact the team.
Also Richard Childress Racing has announced that Ty Dillon will race in the 2015 Daytona 500 this season in No.33 Chevrolet sponsored by Cheerios and Kroger.
We'll also discuss this past weekend's event at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida and how this event can help short track racing and put short track racing back on the map and how impressed we are with winner John Hunter Nemechek.
All that and taking your phone calls today on Talking in Circles!
On tonight's episode of Talking in Circles, Joe Gibbs Racing has announced a new sponsor for both its #19 and number 20 cars in 2015. Stanley/Dewalt joins the fold.
Now that the sponsor has left, that leads to more speculation on who will replace Marcos Ambrose at RPM. RPM's development driver, Corey LaJoie makes his Sprint Cup Series debut this weekend at New Hampshire. Is he now the leading candidate to replace Ambrose, and is he the right man for the job? We're talking about it.
Also, The Motorsports Group, a raceteam currently in the NASCAR Nationwide Series will move to full-time Sprint Cup Series competition next season. What this move means for this organization, and what it means for the future of the Xfinity Series.
Also, we take you back in time to September 21, 2003 at Dover International Speedway for the MBNA 400. First race with freezing the field and the lucky dog. How has this new format helped the sport, and has it hurt it in a way.
And of course, our picks for New Hampshire.
All tonight on Talking in Circles.
