  1. well i was wondering how they were going to determine this as there hasn’t been a legit pole winner since march.

    this should be an interesting mess to start off the new year. be interesting to see of bowyer, kenseth and johnson race. does ty dillon have a ride yet?

  2. The top 24 in POINTS would let Bubba in. I can’t believe they haven’t found any way to get the Comcast Community Champion Of The Year into the Clash. But they would have to make sure there wasn’t a “noose” in the garage area.
