One of the simplest fades for 2016 will be Martin Truex. He overachieved but more importantly is the vehicle change his sponsor is going to do. No more Chevorlet as they will switch to both Toyota engines and bodies. Why mess with a good thing? Rumor has it that Furniture Row Racing is looking to align themselves with a power stable like Joe Gibbs Racing. Alas the death of the hipster solo team that the little guy could root for.
Trends to Look for in 2016
- Less excuses by the drivers on their cars. The low downforce package will even the field more from the super cars of JGR and the one car stables that have to contend with the larger bankrolls
- Brad’s pattern. Keselowski seems to hit low seasons and then roar back with stellar starts. Brad had a below par 2015 so does this mean that 2016 will be his year?
- Tony Stewart should limit his appearances in his final season. There will be no Jeff Gordon like swan song as Stewart has not been relevant since 2013.
Kyle Busch has the potential to be one of the all time greats. An old adage saying that the first title is the hardest to get. Now that he has this in his pocket, he is only thirty years old. Seven years of high ability driving plus probably eight more after that near the top. He will be a force to contend with and the name that could replace Gordon’s as the one to watch for a decade.
