Riggins:
Big news today as Monster Energy will take the place of the Sprint Cup sponsorship.Hope this satisfies Superman as he worried they wouldn't get a sponsor soon enough to satisfy him.

superman:
Now all NASCAR needs to do is figure how to get people back to attending and watching races.

Riggins:
In a surprise move Carl Edwards is stepping away from driving and will not be in the # 19 car this year.They are not officially saying he is retiring but that's the general feeling.Daniel Suarez,the Xfinity Champion,will drive the #19 car this year.It's shocking that anyone in the Gibbs camp would leave on top like that.

superman:
Not exactly on top. He "was" in a good car but he had no Cup Championship Trophy. Finished 2nd twice.

superman:
NASCAR has announced changes to the points system for the 2017 season for their top 3 divisions. Each race will now be divided into three segments with a caution period at the end of each of the first 2 segments. Points will be awarded to the top driver at the end of each of the first 2 segments.

There will no longer be bonus points for leading a lap or leading the most laps in a race. IMO, NASCAR has figured out that many of their races have become snoozers as race attendance has declined as have TV ratings. This is their answer to try and attract more interest.
