Kyle Larson still thinks the Cup Series shouldn't race on dirt

Kevin Harvick Just This One Time

That's via iRacing. And those who logged lots of laps on the racing simulator the week leading into Eldora saw great success at Wednesday night's Dirt Derby.

The Eldora truck race is the only national series dirt race on the NASCAR schedule, and Stewart has started to publicly campaign louder for additional NASCAR national series races.

Enfinger took runner-up honors to give ThorSport a one-two finish in NASCAR's only yearly national level race on dirt. Backed by a group of investors, Preece opted for a few races in top-of-the-line JGR equipment versus a full Xfinity schedule in lesser-quality machinery.

The track had another solid crowd but not a sellout of its 17,782 seats for the midweek event. "Trucks and Xfinity should go to Pensacola (Five Flags Speedway), go to (Fairgrounds Speedway) Nashvilles, South Boston and Hickory ... and make those races that anybody can sign up to run". Matt Weaver of Autoweek caught up with track owner and Cup Series team owner Tony Stewart, who said Eldora is capable and prepared to host Xfinity and Cup events but it will depend on fan response.

"Dirt has made a tremendous comeback in this country the last 20 years", Wheeler said.

How did Truex Jr.'s dominant performance and the rest of the action from the Quaker State 400 affect the NASCAR Cup Series Driver Power Rankings?

Stewart, who co-owns Stewart-Haas Racing that operates four Cup teams, said it would be a cost-efficient change for team owners.

"He used me up and I was going for it, " Enfinger said.

"And you don't have to worry about aero. I'd bring my worst aero vehicle that I've got in my fleet".

"For me, when you're seven or eight years old, and I came to watch my first Cup race here... when you're that old, yeah, there's nothing telling you you can't", Logano said on Friday at the Magic Mile.

"The Cup Series, to me, is the best race vehicle drivers in the world", Briscoe said. "We've proven that the Truck drivers that have never been on dirt before can sit there and get around this track really well".

So, when's the test of Cup cars at Eldora? "I don't know [if it will happen]".

Combining their decades of experience behind the wheel and in the garage, Earnhardt, Burton, and Letarte will bring viewers a fresh perspective of New Hampshire Motor Speedway, through informal stories, conversation, and race commentary.

"After six years of doing it with trucks, the actual physics of doing it are proven that it can happen".
