Team Penske Falters Out In Food City 500 at Bristol

I originally didn’t expect much out of the Team Penske trio for this weekend’s Food City 500 at the Bristol (Tenn) Motor Speedway. In the two race practices on Saturday morning, they were seventh (Joey Logano), 20th (Ryan Blaney) and 28th (Brad Keselowski) in the first session, followed by 16th (Blaney), 20th (Keselowski) and 21st (Logano) in final practice. But, in the race itself, they were all three actually very strong.

Blaney Dominates XFINITY Series Race In Texas

For the third straight NASCAR XFINITY Series race, the No. 22 Ford goes to victory lane. It does so too with a third different driver. Brad Keselowski took the Team Penske entry to victory lane at the ISM Raceway in March. His Penske teammate Joey Logano did so next in Fontana. After two weeks off, the series was back in action on Saturday afternoon at the Texas Motor Speedway. This time, it was Ryan Blaney’s turn in the car. He kept the streak going.

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?

Now that we’re heading into the annual Easter holiday break, we’ve had enough of a sample size to see who the main contenders will be for the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series championship.

Some are exceeding expectations, some aren’t living up to the expectations that were set forth coming into the year. Here are the 10 drivers that are either surprising us in a good way,…

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…
