    Did I also see this on reddit as well?

    Very excited to see this. I'd complete the Reed Car for you, but I'm not on the paint crew here. Antigordo and Joepa will get you set up though!

    Yeah, I posted this on Reddit a couple of days ago, but it didn't get the reception this one has gotten so far. I posted a car request on the Paint Scheme Request Thread for the Reed Car Sunday. Hopefully, someone takes it up. Thanks for liking it so far!

    Um just so you know the NASCAR in 2016 used a charter system that no longer allows teams to field a fifth car for rookies. Also RCR now owns the 8.

    Huh, I didn’t know about the Rookie rule. I’ll edit the news to make this make sense. Thanks for the heads up!

    I edited the news to make the changes make sense. This is a fantasy season so a lot of this is an idea, and would never happen in real life.

    Oh lastly btw Nazardeth has been a dead track since 2006. Lucas Oil Raceway Park could be a great replacement.

    Maybe, but I've always though Nazareth would've been a cool track to put in the cup series. I'll take your suggestion into consideration though.
