You need to try harder.

Kyle Busch is a decent road racer. James Buscher is not bad and will want to work to get better before he gets to Sprint Cup.

I don't think you'll see any of the names you mention in the Truck Series race at Mosport. Kyle Busch will be in Atlanta for the Cup race, as will Joe Nemechek (starting & parking). Todd Bodine is out of a ride as of now, and without a sponsor in his back pocket might be out of a ride permanently (see past champion Johnny Benson). James Buescher is the most likely driver to see at Mosport, but my guess is he'll be getting more and more Nationwide series races.

That said, you should see some pretty good up and coming drivers, among them Ty Dillon, Timothy Peters, Jason White, Ryan Blaney, Joey Coulter, Matt Crafton, Miguel Paludo, Nelson Piquet Jr. (very likely) and Johnny Sauter.

My guess is the Camping World Truck race at Mosport will be more entertaining than the Cup race at Atlanta that same day.

Thanks for the great posts. I really enjoy your racing coverage (mainly Nascar focused, but I do enjoy reading about the other racing series that you cover.

It's funny, I was having a similar discussion with friends on a forum, who said "they're gonna hire a bunch of ringers for Eldora because none of them know how to race on dirt!" ...

- John Blankenship, Kyle Larson, Josh Richards all run partial NASCAR schedules now, and would likely be there. Brendan Gaughan, Matt Crafton, Jason Leffler and Brian Scott are all accomplished dirt racers.

- Ty Dillon, Justin Lofton, and Parker Kligerman all come from ARCA, where they race on A) dirt and B) Road Courses. Ryan Truex raced well on them in the K&N Series.

- Nelson Piquet, Jr. raced GP2 and Formula 1, and has to be considered the favourite at Mosport.

- Kyle Busch is a killer on road courses. He's also raced here twice before, at Delaware Speedway, so he's no stranger to coming over the border. Or he'll send Kurt or Denny Hamlin, both of whom are good at it.

- Cale Gale raced in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series, so he's familiar with Mosport.

- Travis Kvapil has plenty of road course experience in Cup and Nationwide.

- Ron Hornaday is a former winner on road courses in the Trucks, at Topeka or Watkins, I forget which.

- Mario Gosselin is from the area. Not sure if he raced Mosport though.

- And of course, Ron Fellows is SURE to be in a Truck.

I'm not worried. I've already got my tickets.
