Wait...What? Newberry's 23??? Oh, well...at least he's won a truck series race, right?. Oh, he only has one top ten finish? Hrmm...Hold on to that gem...I'm sure he's going to be in the Sprint Cup in a year or two........
Sweet Jimmie Johnson card , though.

Seriously, this is about Press Pass, not about Brennan Newberry...I probably would have been a bit irked by pulling a Ty Dillon, Johnny Sauter, Ryan Blaney or Jeb Burton Auto, and those guys I have actually heard of because they have actually won a race or two.
It just is frustrating to see an Auto included as a "hit" of someone that has as much chance of driving in a Sprint Cup race as I do...seriously. I get that not every Auto can be Danica or Dale, Jr., and that everybody has to start somewhere, yada, yada, yada, but if I'm going to pay $20 for a pack of cards, at least let me pull an auto of someone that I don't have to go to the second page of the Camping World Truck Series standings to see who they are.
I wouldn't be happy pulling an Auto of the human wrecking machine Sam Hornish, Jr., either, but at least he's wrecked 'em hard in a Sprint Cup race or 30, and he is somehow able to keep the rubber on the road in the Nationwide (enough so to win the whole thing??? How is that possible?). Just saying.
Can you tell I'm a bit frustrated watching Mark Martin running the 14? LOL
