During the final off week of the NASCAR season, we’re taking a look at some stars of tomorrow who could potentially make an impact down the road.
Here’s what they all were thinking following the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve and the Truck Series race at Chicagoland.

An all-day indoctrination covering the entire NASCAR rulebook, but no one could find one. 6. A written apology to Hornaday and Bodine. 5. Truck …
Matt Crafton was penalized at Gateway Saturday and sent to the back of the longest line for two incidents where he made contact with the truck in front of him.
