    Lot of empty seats at New Hampshire on Sunday. TV ratings also are down, they are higher then when they were on FOX however. I don't know what the problem is, overpricing I am sure is part of the problem, also a general lack of interest, they seem to have lost some of there excitement. I thought some of the young guns would generate some enthusiasm. Kyle Larson, Chase Elliott, Ryan Blaney among others. I thought the Dillon boys would be doing better, they have the best equipment that Grandpa Childress can provide.
    I never thought a driver with the skill of Matt Kenseth would be looking for a ride. There are several others who could be looking.

    #37-Chris Buescher (on loan from RFR to JTG)
    #41-Kurt Busch (contract ends 2017)
    #77-Erik Jones (moves to JGR #20 car in 2018)

    #20-Matt Kenseth (contract ends 2017, won't return to JGR)
    #2-Brad Keselowski (contract ends 2017)
