Forget the D1 champ, the first 3 champions (who have 5 championships combined) may all be gone next year. Foust, Hubinette, and Millen. And those guys all had turnkey cars ready to run when they left...

Glad to see Yoshioka is staying in FD! He's a very talented driver, I thought he did quite well in that S15. I hope he has time to shake the car down before LB, unless the car is already 2/3 done...
