Gotta have a seat for Ty Dillon. Carson Hocevar replacing him at Spire #77


Maybe a seat in the garage.


I gave your comment a thumbs up — not because I agree with making a change in drivers, but rather, because I agree with the possibility of needing a car for the grandson. Sheldon is in the hunt for the championship — what’s the likelihood that Ty would be in the same position next year.?

So to my mind with Sheldon creed out of rcr for next season I think he would be with another race team like Joe Gibbs racing or kaulig racing’s xfinity or cup series program and with Ty Dillon out of the 77 car for spire Motorsports and the cup series as well too and I think that Ty Dillon will probably go back into the xfinity series for his grandfather’s race team and maybe be the new driver of the 2 car for next year’s season.


He should be racing in the ARCA Series at best. Ty Dillion that is.


“Gramps? Hi! It’s Ty. Got a minute?”


It’s Pop-Pop.


World Mental Health Day has passed. Best to keep the sharps drawer locked just in case.
