Now Stew has a pavement win.  It would be nice to see him move up to a higher series. Just shows that the best drivers are not always where they belong. If you have the talent, you need the opportunity.   I've made sure to catch as many of the truck races as I can. Love his style and take the high road approach. I don;t think I've seen him race dirty but he probably has to get that way if he's in a higher series.   I think he owes Sauter a payback or two.  Really like the attitude of Stew and his crew chief after the call.  Instead of making excuses and crying about it, they immediately regrouped and moved on.  Nascar needs to rework this rule as the control car was not in control.  Probably needs to be done on a case by case basis.

Dale Jr. mentioned on his podcast that they tried to work something out to get Stew in an Xfinity car at JR Motorsports for a couple races this year but couldn't get a deal done. It will be interesting to see if that is something that happens next year. Another option could be the 23 GMS Xfinity car in 2020, however there have been rumors of that team shutting down.

Rumor I heard was the possibility of running 8 or so races for richard childress' xfinity team next year. Halmar would sponsor those races on the car, I think. Just a rumor though, I have absolutely no clue. I do know that they have a #2 car that is run full time by Tyler Reddick (who is in the championship 4 and has won 5 races this year) and the #21 that has been run part time by at least five drivers this year.

I just wonder if the Halmar team is looking to take baby steps in moving up again, or if they are done with running Nascar full time and are letting Stew run whatever his 8 favorite races are with a new challenge.

I know not a popular opinion, but I think Stew should move south and concentrate on Asphalt full time. That's how you get better. Brett Hearn made the mistake and so did Charlie Rudolph. They tried to race NASCAR and maintain a Modified team at the same time.  Brett even said he should of concentrated on just NASCAR when he was running the Grand National circuit. Unfortunately he was also running a Ford at the time when Ford wasn't the best option. 

If we want to see Stew move up the ranks, he needs to dedicate himself to it. Stew has skill, but he also has the most important thing to excel in NASCAR and that's a big benefactor. That's what hurt Tim McCreadie when he had a chance at NASCAR. He didn't have a sponsor to pay for the ride. He was suppose to drive the car a lot more times but didn't have the money backing. Harvick being a Cup driver did and took a couple races that Timmy was supposed to be in the car.

Tim McCreadie's demise was the fact that he was told he would get quality seat time in the car, but wasn't told that he was taken on primarily as an R&D driver. This was also at a time when the diversity programs were hot, and Timmy rarely had the same crew twice. The diversity programs also applied to pit crews. Driver/crew relationships are key to success and Tim was never able to establish that.

I had a lengthy conversation with Tim about this at Charlotte a few years ago when he stopped at my camera with his 4 Wheeler. He is definitely bitter about it because he thinks under different circumstances, he could have made it. More than anything though, he is happy that he has the Late Model program to live on.

The Drive for Diversity program is hotter than ever in NASCAR today.  

I think I'll order a DNA test and see what I have in me.  Maybe I'll get a NASCAR ride that way. I mean,  Bubba is half white but tells us that he is black and that we need to 'embrace it (a half/white half black man in racing), accept it (he felt the need to tell us that we need to accept a half white/half black man in racing), and enjoy the ride (I guess we need to be told to enjoy a half white/half black man in racing)" (this was after he somehow got second in the Daytona in 2018). I don't think it's needed to mention that you're black,  just drive the car and win. You'll get people's attention. 

In other news,  Bubba Wallace is a baby.  He could've-should've it least had a fake slap fight like Lagano and Hamlin instead throwing water at Bowman.

I remember Brett driving a Pontiac not a ford

I would hate to see Stew move up or get moved up without it being a seriously legitimate car. Not saying he should be given one of the top rides out there but I see a lot of people move up just to be there. Stews better than that. I would hate to think he takes a sub par Xfinitey ride next year when it could be a really exciting year in the truck. But I guess they really don’t know what’s going on with that either. Either way I hope he stays competitive in whatever he’s driving. Been a blast to see his upward trend. I for one would not want to see him give up the mods although it certainly makes sense to fully concentrate on what the priority is.

My bad he drove a Pontiac in 85, 86. A Ford in 87. A Buick 88, and back to a Pontiac in 89. 

Best finish was a 10th in 85 at Dover where he started 26th out of 30 cars in his very first race.

Best Start was a 8th in 86 at Rockingham where he finished 14th out of 38 cars.

Most races ran was 7 in 1986. In 5 years he ran a total of 20 races with only 1 race in 1989.

Richard Childress screwed over several young drivers during that period including Tim.  He had them under contract but they barely ever raced due to "lack of sponsorship".   But when Richards's grandsons were old enough to run in the top 3 NASCAR series that "lack of sponsorship" issue certainly went away.

I think it was the porn star mustache that did stewie in. He is Canadian,  he should know that you don't shave at all during the playoffs. Half assed effort yields half ass results!
