Looks like Jason will be driving the #2 Truck next season. This will be a great addition to the Truck series because Jason has the talent, he just needs some mores seasoning. I thought it was a mistake for Chip Ganassi to shoot him up to Cup last year anyway. Jason showed flashes of brilliance in the Busch Grand National series during the 2000 season but did not do enough in my opinion to land a full-time Winston Cup ride. I hope things work out for him.
Yeah- I agree Joe- It would be better for him to DO WELL in a lower series, than to struggle in a higher one. I think that these boys try to move up too quickly- then are discouraged. He's young & has some time.
Besides the truck series is awesome. I love it. I would have a hard time deciding, if I were given an option between a truck race & a Busch race. The trucks are a bit harder handling- therefore I feel that they learn more- The tracks are generally smaller & flater. Although there isn't much more exciting than the trucks on a super speedway.
Seems like Ganassi didn't do Jason much of a favor stealing him away from Joe Gibbs Racing after all. He had a good ride in Busch, but now finds himself in trucks. I guess he will be able to say that he has experience in all 3 top Nascar divisions...
