Maybe he can prevent the Baby Busch Benefit robbery.


Chase won the Truck bounty last season beating Kyle.

Don’t like either Cup champion running the truck races. I’d give past Cup champions one appearance in the truck series per year and that’s it.


The key thing here is the money, as always. Chase is bringing a new sponsor with him and that’s the main reason he’s in the race. That’s the benefit of Cup drivers competing in the lower series most fans don’t recognize. GMS gets a nice cash infusion.
