5 Favorites For Saturday’s NXS 300 (5 p.m. ET/FS1/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio)

With Kyle Larson and Kyle Busch both not being on the NASCAR XFINITY Series entry-list for this weekend’s NXS 300 (5 p.m. ET/FS1/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) it opens up the door for someone else to contend this weekend in Fontana. Since 2008, Busch and Larson have combined to win eight of the 12 races on the D-Shaped, 2-mile California oval. Throw in Kevin Harvick’s win in 2015, and that’s three stars off the list. Last weeks winner Brad Keselowski isn’t entered either. That means we could be treated to a first…

Almirola Heartbroken By Daytona 500 Result, Doesn’t Blame Dillon

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla – I think most were waiting for Aric Almirola to storm victory lane and speak his mind to Austin Dillon following a thrilling 60th annual Daytona 500 on Sunday. Instead, Almirola wasn’t mad at Dillon for what happened, he was mad at himself and how this race finished. On the last lap, Almirola, a Cuban immigrant and Florida native, was in the lead.

But, in the wake of his passing, it seems like RCR dropped a little bit as far as their restrictor plate prowess. Now, it appears that it’s rising again. During the 2018 Daytona Speedweeks, RCR and the teams they have aligned with are flying under the radar and should make some noise in Sunday’s 60th annual Daytona 500 (2:30 p.m. ET/FOX/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). Austin Dillon finished fifth in…

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla – Qualifying didn’t determine the starting lineup for Sunday’s 40th annual Advance Auto Parts Clash at Daytona (3 p.m. ET/FS1/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio), a random draw did. As custom for the season opening all-star event at the Daytona International Speedway, the lineup for the race wasn’t based off of speed, rather than luck. This year though, kids were able to draw the starting positions for all 17 drivers, as Austin Dillon will start his No. 3 Chevrolet on the pole as the result of the drawing.
