Matt Crafton stunned the Nation when he won the championship in 2019. His win was a walk-off moment.
Since then, the team has been uncharacteristically quiet. Is this a concern?
Here’s my opinion in three questions
1. Who’s going to be driving this season? They typically renew Crafton’s contract option. In addition to Crafton, they usually bring Ben Rhodes. Sauter and Enfinger are unknown as well.
2. Has Ben Rhodes met the end of his career? He has been very underwhelming with this team. Kyle Busch and Gallagher had chance to sign him over the years, but they passed. Is he a safety blanket for the team? He’s consistently finishing inside the Top-10, but he can’t win.
3. Who’s up next for ThorSport Racing? Sports has the culture of ‘the next man up’. There is drivers developing for DGR-Crosley, Kyle Busch Motorsports, and GMS Racing. The major argument is who’s the next man up for this team. This team has no drivers developing now and it’s not the most viable for free agents.
Today, the team has not definitely set a lineup for the season. This upcoming racing season is closing ii on us fast. Is the future of this team hanging in the balance.
Thus story is intriguing. Stay tuned …
