Ryan Blaney Earns Pocono 400 (2 p.m. ET/FS1/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) Pole

Ryan Blaney returns to the race weekend that netted him his first and current only Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series victory. Last year, Blaney held off Kevin Harvick en route to a win in the June Pocono race weekend. Now, in the return trip, Blaney earned the Busch Light Pole. Blaney’s final-round lap of 176.897 mph in the Team Penske No. 12 Ford sealed the No. 1 starting spot in Sunday’s Pocono 400 (2 p.m. ET, FS1, MRN, SiriusXM). Blaney, who scored his first Monster Energy Series victory in this…

Logano Has Led A Ton Of Laps In Pocono, Just Doesn’t Have The Finishes, His Teammate Keselowski Has Been Dominant Instead

The “big three” among the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers should be the ones to beat this weekend in Pocono. After all, when Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick have combined to win 10 of the first 13 races of the season, you can’t go against them. But, this may be the time when Team Penske lands in victory lane again. So far, Joey Logano is the only one of the three drivers to win in 2018. Can he or his two other Team Penske teammates of…

Can Penske Turn Dover Struggles Around In Sunday’s AAA 400 Drive For Autism (2 p.m. ET/FS1/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio)

If there’s any week where you may want to steer clear of the Team Penske drivers in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, this may be the week. Unfortunately, their trio of drivers haven’t fared too well at the Dover International Speedway lately. That’s why I wouldn’t think any of them would be in the hunt to win Sunday’s AAA 400 Drive For Autism (2 p.m. ET/FS1/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). Joey Logano hasn’t taken his No. 22 Ford home to a top five finish at the Monster Mile since 2004. In…

In his two full season in the No. 77 entry with Penske, the elder Blaney scored one top five finish to go along with nine top 10’s. Blaney’s best finish was third…

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.…

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?
