His concern for driver Travis Pastrana, who will race to qualify for NASCAR after a decade, is certainly valid. He said, “I mean, we’re sitting here and Travis Pastrana is going to drive for us. He hasn’t driven a NASCAR car in almost ten years. We are trying to figure out which parking lot we can take him to to try and figure out the shifts because he has a chance in qualifying not to stall and then get all the shifts right.

Okay. What is the “common sense reason” for the lack of practice? Already. What athlete doesn’t warm up?! js

I completely agree! Part of the excitement of Speedweeks was that there were always cars on the track. The discussion around the various events in town was “who was the fastest” in the multiple practices of the week. It was a build up to 500. It’s just not the same 😩 Never will be!

Nascar does what Nascar does… makes no sense

I have to say that I’m not a fan of Hamlin as a driver… but hearing the owners’ point of view is nice! Excited for the show!

It’s ridiculous that there’s no practice before qualifying and it’s funny how they keep calling it “speed week” but that’s not the case anymore

— Ryan Agar (@1969Cuda48) February 1, 2023

Even though I’ve always hated Denny, I agree. Honestly, I wonder if they had practiced a lot last year, how many issues would have been resolved before the races.
