Busch, Harvick, Truex Leaps and Bounds Ahead Of Everyone Else In 2018

Parity is normally high in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. We’d threaten to have 16 winners heading into the playoffs each of the last two years. But, in 2018, three drivers have combined to win seven of the nine races. If you’re looking at a favorite to win the 2018 Cup championship, look no further than Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick or Martin Truex Jr. That trio of drivers are the ones everyone is trying to beat right now. The problem is, no one has enough speed to catch them.…

5 Favorites and 5 Sleepers For Sunday’s Geico 500 (2 p.m. ET/FOX/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio)

Talladega, Ala – Restrictor plate racing in NASCAR is one of the most hardest things to predict. That’s why some places will offer $1-million to whoever can predict the exact same finishing order as the top five at races in Daytona and Talladega. The reason they do this?

Hamlin, Logano Nab Top 5’s, But Still Don’t Have Overall Speed To Win

Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano have each been solid at the start of the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season. Hamlin, now has five top six finishes through nine races.

Penske Duo Hoping For Same Richmond Success, But Better Luck Leaving The Spring Race This Time Around

Last year, the then Team Penske duo of Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski left the Richmond Raceway in the spring race with a 1-2 finish. Logano, capitalized on a late caution to take his No. 22 Ford to victory lane. Keselowski, led 110 laps and finished runner-up in his No. 2 Ford.

Team Penske Falters Out In Food City 500 at Bristol

I originally didn’t expect much out of the Team Penske trio for this weekend’s Food City 500 at the Bristol (Tenn) Motor Speedway.

But, in the race itself, they were all three actually very strong.
