Big 3 May Be Dominating But Battle For 4th In Supremacy Is Intense

Unless something unforeseen or drastic happens, the “Big 3” will all make the final round of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoffs at the Homestead-Miami Speedway this November. Between them, they’ve won 17 of the 23 races in 2018 and if you take out the restrictor plate races, they’re 20-for-23. They’re winning 87-percent of the “normal” races. So, between now and that final race on Nov. 18, I can make a strong case that they will win all but a few races left in the season. So, barring a…

Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr. have combined to win 10 of the 13 races in 2018. They’ve been bar none better than the rest of the field.

He finished second and first respectively at the Monster Mile in 2015. Well since? His best finish is ninth in this very…

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? They know it can’t be done. With cars are racing at speeds in excess of 200 mph and running wheel-to-wheel, you could be running in the lead pack but fall from a top five result to sub 20th place finish in a matter…
