For those who saw the Subject Line and can't help letting us know "WHO CARES"... or NASCRAP SUCKS... or I DON'T WATCH ANYMORE, we get it.  Your mad or have moved on, and you still want everyone to know it, over and over again.

For the 3 or 4 of us who still watch some Nascar cup events (most with help of the DVR), read on...

There are currently 53 drivers listed in the 2020 points tally for cup racing.  One thing that is clear is that if you're not in one of the top multi-car teams (Stewart Haas, Gibbs, Penske, Hendrick) your chances of making the chase/playoffs (whatever their calling it this year) are greatly reduced.

So the question is...  Looking past the top 16 in points, what 5 (5 only) on the list from positions 17 to 53 have "shown enough" to you, to get a full time quality ride in 2021?

Your Top 5 (out of those listed above in positions 17 - 53) that you think have shown enough to get a quality ride for 2021.

  1. ______________
  2. ______________
  3. ______________
  4. ______________
  5. ______________.

2nd Question: Is there anyone you would bump from the top 16, or from your additional 5 that you provided that currently race in another series that you think have shown enough to get a quality full time ride in 2021?

....just something to think about... or not.

Thanks for those who took the time to read the above, and to provide their additional top 5 that think should be in a good seat for 2021, thanks in advance.
