I wouldn't say it was all that bad Brennan Poole is from Texas and raced 1/4 midgets at Lone Star QMA in San Antonio for many years.

I think Poole lives in the woodlands.

Agreed.  I remember him running dirt modifieds on the USMTS tour a while back.

The Cup race was spectacular.  The new package is bringing out the worst (Or Best) in drivers.  They are finally showing some passion.  Kyle Busch is crying like a baby.  Bowyer cries weekly and even whaled on No Neck Newman.  He was a brave man doing that, but a smart one, he left his helmet on.  Bubba Wallace even ran up front.  Maybe this package levels the playing field some.   It is a great time to watch the sport man.

He may have, I know he has been racing for a long time. Seems to me that he may have drove that xfinity car with the DC Solar sponsorship on it a few years ago as well. I think it may have been for Gannasi

I’m going to agree with you 100%; the All-Star Race was without a doubt the best NASCAR race I’ve seen anywhere besides a road course in years. The teams seemed a lot more evenly matched, the drivers seemed to both have to really push to be fast BUT they where also able to pass and the cars looked to move around some but not so much they couldn’t get 3 and 4 wide. I haven’t said this in a while but NASCAR nailed the All-Star race; after catching the open just off-hand I set down and watched the invitational and wasn’t disappointed!

From Wikipedia “Raised outside of HoustonTexas,[3] Poole was born in Folsom, California, living there until the age of seven.[1] He is known for his surfer-like appearance and persona including his long hair. Poole earned the nickname "The Bull" early in his career, after charging from the rear of the field to earn several victories.[1][2][5][6][9]

Poole's father owns a Midas Car Care Center in their hometown of The Woodlands, Texas. Poole graduated from Woodlands Christian Academy a year early in 2008, at the age of 17.[6]

Poole maintains a presence on the video game-streaming service Twitch.tv, and has a dormant YouTube channel.

Poole is an avid fan of the late rapper Mac Miller and in his free time makes songs and raps.”
