Can Kyle Busch Or Martin Truex Jr. Dethrone Kevin Harvick And Team Penske On Sunday In Texas

It’s not much of a secret, the top drivers to beat in Sunday’s O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 (2 p.m. ET/FS1/PRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) is going to be Kyle Busch, Martin Truex Jr., Kevin Harvick and the Team Penske trio of drivers. That’s six drivers that could honestly finish in spots 1-6. With how the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season is shaping up so far, I really can’t see anyone other than these six drivers winning the acutal race this weekend. The favorite has to be Harvick though right?

After a week off to recharge their batteries, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers return to action this weekend at the Texas Motor Speedway. So far, three drivers stand out as favorites to land the 2018 title. Did all three make my favorites list? I also have five early sleepers to keep an eye out on. In the last race in Martinsville, I had Clint Bowyer on this list. If you threw a couple bucks his way based off the early line, you would be a lot richer right…

Logano Dominates XFINITY Series Race in Fontana

FONTANA, Calif – Saturday was all about Joey Logano. The Team Penske driver took the lead on Lap 4 and lead the next 116 laps in the process. He’d lead all but 11 for the race overall, en route to the dominating victory in Saturday’s Roseanne 300 at the Auto Club Speedway. It was Logano’s 29th career series win, tying Matt Kenseth for seventh all-time. Three of those 29 have come in Fontana (2009, 2012, 2018). But, this is his first with Penske and the No. 22 Ford. The trip to…

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…

Team Penske Hasn’t Won In 2018 Yet, But Quietly Doing Their Job

In the offseason, Team Penske added a third car to their Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series side. Back came Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano for another season, and in came Ryan Blaney to join them. Would this shift to three teams take some time to adapt? After three races to start the year off, I’d say not at all. As we head to the fourth race of the 2018 Cup season this weekend in Phoenix, Penske has all three drivers in the top seven of the Cup points standings. In fact,…

Penske Trio And Hamlin Set For Good Weekends In Las Vegas

It seems weird that just three out of the 43 drivers that have competed in a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race so far in 2018 have completed all 532 laps run. Normally, that number would be much higher. But, the carnage in Daytona led to just 10 cars finishing on the lead lap in the season opening Daytona 500. Then, Kevin Harvick’s dominance on the field in Atlanta, led to just 13 cars finishing on the lead lap there. That gets you the three who’ve completed all 100-percent of…

Pit Calls Help Hamlin, Logano With Good Finishes In Atlanta

HAMPTON, Ga – Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano both knew that if they remained status quo with the flow of Sunday’s Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, then they’d be lucky to score top five finishes in the second race of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season. See, the race was getting drawn out. The caution flags were few and far between. In fact, we’d see 28 total caution laps the entire race. That’s 298 green flag laps.
