Kyle Busch Motorsports Ultimate Stepping Stone To Greater NASCAR Opportunities

While the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is getting tougher and tougher to make money in, the series absolutely has to find a way to cut costs but be able to retain Kyle Busch Motorsports. While Kyle Busch himself has threatened to pull out of the series amid new rule changes that limit himself and other Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers from competing in the series on a regular basis, the recent string of success and promotion of drivers from KBM shows that they need to somehow find a…

Avondale, AZ – Last year, William Byron led over 100 laps and was well on his way to winning the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at the Phoenix Raceway.

Rookies Erik Jones/Daniel Suarez Sleepers To Watch This Weekend at Phoenix

Avondale, AZ – All the talk this weekend is on the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoffs and who the fourth driver will be that will advance to the Championship 4 next weekend at the Homestead-Miami Speedway. But, two drivers are being completely overlooked and I think either could get their first career Cup victory in Sunday’s Can-Am 500 (2:30 p.m. ET/NBC/MRN) at the Phoenix Raceway. While no nonplayoff driver has won a Cup playoff race in over four years, I can see any one of the two rookies in Erik…

5 Favorites For Saturday’s Ticket Galaxy 200 (3:30 p.m. ET/NBC/MRN)

The NASCAR XFINITY Series will decide who the Championship 4 will be that will race for the 2017 championship next weekend at the Homestead-Miami Speedway. Currently all four spots are open, as none of the eight drivers in this round have won a race. In fact, none of the playoff eligible drivers in general have won a race in the actual playoffs itself. Everyone that has advanced on has done so on points alone. Will we see a playoff driver win Saturday’s Ticket Galaxy 200 (3:30 p.m. ET/NBCSN/MRN) at the…

Fort Worth, TX – Two weeks ago was the last NASCAR XFINITY Series race. At the opening race of the second round, Erik Jones led all but 14 laps. Unfortunately for him, his Joe Gibbs Racing teammate of Christopher Bell passed him for the lead with just a handful laps left as Jones ran into the back of him in frustration. Bell would win, Jones would finish outside the top 10. On Saturday night at the Texas Motor Speedway, Jones wasn’t about to let that happen to him again. Jones, swept…

Erik Jones Quietly Fast This Weekend at Texas

Fort Worth, TX – As the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoffs march on, the amount of playoff eligible drivers diminish. There’s just eight drivers eligible for the season championship. That means there’s 32 drivers in Sunday’s AAA Texas 500 (2 p.m. ET/NBCSN/PRN) that are not. Numbers would say that 32 drivers with nothing to race for would make one of those cars among the favorites. But, it’s just so hard for a non playoff driver to win a race in the postseason, let alone this late in it. If a…
