.@TBarrettGWC puts the NASCAR Cup debut for @AustinTheriault in perspective: Casual sports fans, even casual fans of stock car racing, probably look at where Austin Theriault finished on Sunday and had one of two thoughts.“What’s the big deal with this kid? He qualified 36th out of 37 cars.”“He must not be as good as everyone thinks he is. He finished …35th…”Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series racing is not a joke. It is both big business and ultra-competitive. And while it’s clearly not sports car racing at Daytona or Le Mans, with three different classes of cars on the track racing all at the same time during endurance events — it is, for those inside the NASCAR garage, very much the same thing.The days of 40 cars showing up believing they can win vanished decades ago, along with the hopes of a rag-tag team showing up at their local track and hoping they can somehow make one start all year and have enough good fortune to finish 10th.Instead, there are very clearly three different tiers in every Cup series field in 2019.You have the elite teams — the Joe Gibbs Racings and Penske Racings of the world — showing up to compete both for wins and championships. You have the mid-tier teams, the ones on the playoff bubble, like a JTG-Daugherty Racing or Leavine Family Racing trying to finish inside the top 20 in the standings, secure more funding to expand their operations and be in the playoff conversation within a couple of seasons.https://www.sunjournal.com/2019/07/21/s ... ricky-one/

Austin Theriault updateLike all sports NASCAR has put the season on hold. There's isn't a timetable on when fans might hear the roar of engines again. Fort Kent's Austin Theriault lives in the Charlotte North Carolina area and said that Mecklenburg County ordered non essential businesses closed a couple of weeks ago even before North Carolina ordered it. Theriault says most of the race shops are now closed and just like the rest of the country people are anxious.Austin Theriault:" Extremely nervous and we all know we are going to come out the other side in some way. We don't know what this is going to look like when we come out the other side. It is going to have a large impact in what I do. I think that is across the board for any sport that has a live audience or some sort of competition."https://www.wagmtv.com/content/sports/A ... 65151.html
