I think the Chevy teams as a whole were behind the 8 ball last year, this year they'll be better. Chase was the only team really that done well, especially towards the end of the season. I won't disagree with that statement you made though. I fully look for Larson to be in that 48 when Johnson retires
Just read where Busch's deal is for only 1 year and its expected to be his last year of full time Cup. I wonder if Gannasi will make a push for Christopher Bell(if Gibbs doesn't drop Hamlin to create a spot for him). I wish SHR would put Bell in the 41 this year instead of Suarez.
