Truex The Easy Favorite To Win’s Sunday’s Race In Michigan

Most would agree that both Fontana and Michigan race similar. While one has a newer surface over the other, they both are similar shaped (D-Shaped), both the same size (2-miles in length) and both produce similar results. So, knowing that, when Martin Truex Jr. leads 125 out of 200 laps at Fontana back in March in winning both stages as well as the race, you can’t overlook his No. 78 Toyota as a favorite for Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at the Michigan International Speedway. On top of…

Truex, Busch And Harvick’s Dominance Eye Opening

Parity used to ring kind in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. But, over the last calendar year, that is becoming to be a foregone conclusion. In fact, if you go back to one year ago today, 36 races to be exact, three drivers are leaps and bounds better than anyone else competing in the series on a full time basis. There are 36 races in a Cup season, so this in theory is a full seasons worth of data. Take a look at what Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch…

Big 3 Dominate Pocono With Truex Earning Pocono 400 Victory

Why else would anyone think that this year’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series “Big 3” would dominate Sunday’s race at the Pocono Raceway? Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr. had the top three speeds in final practice on Saturday and all three started in the top five for Sunday’s Pocono 400. So, when the trio combine to lead 133 of the 160 laps for Sunday’s race and take three of the top four finishing positions, is anyone really shocked?

Look For Sunday’s Pocono 400 (2 p.m. ET/FS1/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) To Be Dominated By NASCAR’s Big 3 Right Now

As we have reached the midway mark of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series regular season, it’s a preconceived notion that three of the four spots for the Championship 4 at Homestead are already accounted for. Between Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr., the championship at this point goes through them. Combined, they’ve won 10 of the first 13 races in 2018. With this weekend’s race being at the Pocono Raceway, I don’t see how someone other than these three drivers land in victory lane in Sunday’s Pocono…

Truex, Kyle Busch Drivers To Watch On Saturday Night

The two drivers to beat for Saturday night’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at the Kansas Speedway has to be Martin Truex Jr. and Kyle Busch. The duo have combined to win four races already in 2018, with Busch taking three checkered flags first and Truex one. But, they could add to that total under the lights this weekend, because both have been so dominant at the 1.5-mile track lately. Truex, swept both races in 2017 after leading 104 laps last May and 91 more in the fall. He…

Truex, Larson Top 2 To Watch In Sunday’s AAA 400 Drive For Austim (2 p.m. ET/FS1/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio)

While the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season has been dominated by Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch, this weekend’s race at Dover may see two newer drivers in the mix for the win. Both Kyle Larson and Martin Truex Jr. have been up-and-down as far as results go this season. But, those finishes have been up recently at Dover. That’s why I can see both being in the hunt to win Sunday’s AAA 400 Drive For Autism (2 p.m. ET/FS1/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). Lets take Larson for example. He finished…

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.…

But, look at his stats at the upcoming tracks.

For 3rd Time In Last 4 Richmond Races, Truex Leads The Most Laps But Doesn’t Win

Martin Truex Jr. has to be wondering what he ever did to the Richmond Raceway. Richmond was the spot that started his downward spiral in NASCAR. It was the site that he thought at the time that he raced his way into the playoffs, only to be taken back out, when it was deemed that his then Michael Waltrip Racing teammate Clint Bowyer purposely brought out a late caution flag which helped aid in Truex making it into NASCAR’s postseason. In the aftermath of that, Truex would get taken out…
