Stewart-Haas Racing In Trouble After Sunday’s First Data 500

MARTINSVILLE, VA – I wrote earlier this week how despite getting all four drivers into the Round of 8 that Stewart-Haas Racing could be in trouble for the third round of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series postseason. The tracks in this round historically haven’t been their four drivers’ strongest. Add the plaguing pit road problems and they could see at least 75-percent of their fleet eliminated in two weeks. Sunday’s First Data 500 at the Martinsville Speedway showed why.

Round of 8 Could Be Tough For SHR, Here’s Why

If anyone is going to win this year’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series championship, look no further than one of the four Stewart-Haas Racing drivers. Out of the eight remaining drivers, SHR had half of the field. After a phenomenal Round of 12 in which SHR dominated in all three races, Kevin Harvick, Kurt Busch, Aric Almirola and Clint Bowyer all advanced to the Round of 8. Now, they’re looking to get multiple drivers through to the Championship 4 at Homestead.

Despite All 4 Cars Moving Onto The Round of 8, Pit Road Problems Plague Stewart-Haas Sunday In Kansas

The easy odds on favorites to win Sunday’s Hollywood Casino 400 at the Kansas Speedway had to be the Stewart-Haas Racing camp. Heading into this weekend, Ford’s had won seven of the last nine races of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season and SHR has had the most speed overall among that camp. Also there’s this, Kevin Harvick won the spring race at Kansas and all four cars were looking quick so far this weekend too. Unfortunately, pit road problems plagued them in Sunday’s race. Now, this is a…

SHR Cars Fast On Long Runs In Practice

Stewart-Haas Racing has a very good chance of having all four of their drivers advance to the Round of 8 of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoffs. Aric Almirola is automatically in as he won last weekend at the Talladega Superspeedway. Kevin Harvick has all but clinched and will likely be on too. Kurt Busch and Clint Bowyer has some good advantages and just need to maintain in Sunday’s Hollywood Casino 400 (2 p.m. ET/NBC/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). But, after three practice sessions around the 1.5-mile Kansas Speedway this weekend,…

All 4 SHR Cars Eyeing Round of 8 Spots As If Last 2 Races End With Green Flag Runs, They Go 1-2-3-4 In Each

It’s no secret, the best all around team during the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season has been Stewart-Haas Racing. With Aric Almirola’s victory in last Sunday’s race at the Talladega Superspeedway, all four drivers have now found victory lane this year. Kevin Harvick has won seven times while Clint Bowyer has found the checkered flag first in two races himself. Kurt Busch and Almirola have one win a piece totaling 11 victories for the organization.

SHR Dominates Qualifying For Sunday’s 1000Bulbs.com 500 (2 p.m. ET/NBC/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio), Will Start 1-2-3-4

TALLADEGA, Ala – Qualifying for Sunday’s 1000Bulbs.com 500 (2 p.m. ET/NBC/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) was a lot like Formula One. Most of the teams all start together. For example, in the first round of Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series qualifying, the top four speeds were all Stewart-Haas Racing cars. The next four fastest were the four Hendrick Motorsports drivers. Three of the next four were Toyota drivers, two of which belonging to Joe Gibbs Racing. In the final round, it was SHR 1-2-3-4, Hendrick 5-6-7-8, JGR 9-10 and FRR 11th. This was…

Stewart-Haas Team To Beat This Weekend In Dover, Could See All 4 Drivers Advance In Round of 12

If you think that the first round of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoffs was wild enough, buckle up for the Round of 12. Among the eight drivers that I think will advance to the third round of the playoffs, I believe half of them could very well come from the Stewart-Haas Racing camp. Through 29 races run in 2018, SHR has won 10 of them. They also won the All-Star race too. Despite that though, they haven’t won in the last five races. That could very well end…
