Chip Ganassi Racing Could See Both Cars Strong This Weekend in Richmond

The start to the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season has been quiet for both Chip Ganassi Racing drivers. Neither are in the top five of the Cup points standings, as both Kyle Larson and his teammate Jamie McMurray has been further off in 2018 than they were in 2017. McMurray, didn’t have a top 15 finish in the first six races to the season. He did finish third though at Texas and should be stronger this weekend at the Richmond Raceway. The Missouri native has five top seven…

Larson Leads Most Laps Again, Finishes 2nd at Bristol

Kyle Larson worked so hard to make up for screwing up both Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races at the Bristol (Tenn) Motor Speedway last year on pit road. See, he led 202 laps last spring, only to speed late in the race and finish sixth. Then, in the August night race, he led 70 more laps, only to have problems again and finished ninth. He worked in practice on pit road speeds this weekend. He had all his ts crossed and i’s dotted.

Truex/Larson/Keselowski Could Struggle Again This Weekend In Bristol

Last weekend in Texas, Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Larson and Brad Keselowski had miserable days. All three crashed out of the race and suffered their worst days of the year. But, I caution that they could be in store for long days again this weekend at the Bristol (Tenn) Motor Speedway. Lets start with Truex. He saw his 13 race top 10 streak on 1.5-mile tracks end with a crash at the end of the first stage of the race last Sunday. At Bristol, he has an average finishing position…

Can Larson Keep Winning Streak Going On 2 Mile Tracks This Weekend In Fontana

Just call him two-mile Kyle if you want. There’s been nobody better on both two-mile D-Shaped NASCAR tracks over the last two years than Kyle Larson. In fact, if you go back to August of 2016, no one has won a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series nor NASCAR XFINITY Series race that Larson had entered at both the Auto Club Speedway or Michigan International Speedway, other than Larson himself. In 2016, Larson earned his first career Cup victory at Michigan. There was no XFINITY Series race at Michigan in August.…

Is Phoenix The Weekend To Get Chevy Drivers, Mainly Kyle Larson and Hendrick Motorsports Going?

It’s no secret, the start of the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season has been a trying time for Chevrolet as a whole. With a new car for this season, it was supposed to see a big uptick in results. Last year, Chevy didn’t have a single driver make the Championship 4 round in NASCAR’s premiere series. They’d struggle for much of the second half of the year. That’s why out went the old SS and in came the new Camaro. Instead of a bump, 2018 has seen even…
