“Big 3” Would Be Upset But Fine If 1 Of Them Wins Title On Sunday, Would Be Upset If It’s Logano

HOMESTEAD, Fla – Joey Logano is remaining quiet this week. While he said on Thursday that he still considers himself the favorite to win this year’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series championship, the Team Penske driver said that his driving at the Homestead-Miami Speedway will do the talking. But, Logano is also an underdog in some people’s minds. See, Logano has just two victories in 2018. One was on a superspeedway, the other on a short track.

Ford Seeking 1st Cup Championship Since 2004

Heading into last year’s Championship 4, one of the big storylines was that Ford had not one, but two drivers vying for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series championship.

Despite Slower 2nd Part Of The Season, “Big 3” Still Make It To Homestead

For the first 21 races of the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season, everyone wondered who the fourth member would be in the Championship 4 at the Homestead-Miami Speedway. We all figured Martin Truex Jr., Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch were permanently in. Rightfully so too. Through the July race at Pocono, the “Big 3” had won 16 of the opening 21 races to the year. Factor in winning eight of the 10 playoff races in 2017, and you had no reason to believe that they wouldn’t be competing…
