Byron may be the most-recent winner, and on a hot streak, but I think Elliott and Larson are still more popular. I’m waiting for the Chase fans to start saying Hendrick isn’t giving him the best equipment, like they did when Dale Jr drove for him.


Byron might again more fan support if someone would burn this stupid bag hats.


I’m not sure if Chase is really that possible. For whatever reason, I’ve never been able to warm up to him. When he was driving the 24 for HMS, I rooted for him NOT to win. I simply didn’t want to see him win in that car. Petty I know but there you are. I don’t feel that way about Byron. I agree that Larson is more popular. I think he’s a better all around racer.


Are we talking popularity top dog or top dog racer. Been telling you all year , Chase is the 3rd best racer in the Hendrick stable. And Larson is the best wheel man.
