    I was thinking that Kenseth and/or Kurt Busch could end up in one of RPM's seats but right now RPM is in dire straights as no sponsorship has stepped forward even with the advertisement that Bubba is going to be the driver of the 43 car.

    Is this the end of RPM? One can only guess. Right now RPM have no shop, no sponsor(s), and no drivers for any of their cars. They may finish this year but going forward looks like the end may be near.

    The car was done anyway, I think they just started surveying the damage too soon.

    Keselowski wins the race and the 43 car finishes in the top five. Good to see the 43 up near the front again in what may be the last several races we will see the 43 in NASCAR again.

    And like Almirola has done several times, he finishes the race with a wreck. I am almost glad he is leaving and if RPM finds a sponsor to continue, a guy like Bubba Wallace Jr. is just itching for a seat in the 43!!

    Keselowski, Newman, and Hamlin were the only guys not to be involved in a wreck during the race.
