Penske Drivers Could Be Factors To Watch In Sunday’s South Point 400 (3 p.m. ET/NBCSN/PRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio)

There’s no doubt that the Team Penske cars are starting to find their mojo back. They’re coming off of two straight wins as they won on Monday in the rain delayed Brickyard 400 and finished 1-2 two weeks ago in the Southern 500. They have been getting better and better and finding more and more speed over the last month or so. Now, can they make a statement in the opening race of the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoffs at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend? I…

Penske Wins The Last 2 Races But Do They Have The Speed To Contend For The Championship?

INDIANAPOLIS – The most momentum heading into the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series has to go to Team Penske and Brad Keselowski. Monday’s win in the rain delayed Brickyard 400 was the second straight for his No. 2 Ford. Last week, he won the prestigious Southern 500 at the Darlington Raceway.

Keselowski Gives Penske Indianapolis Motor Speedway Sweep With Brickyard 400 Win

INDIANAPOLIS – For the second straight week, Brad Keselowski didn’t have the fastest car of the race. But, for the second straight week, the Team Penske driver was the one celebrating in victory lane. Last weekend, Keselowski inherited the lead after his final pit stop in the Southern 500. He’d hold off his teammate Joey Logano and Kyle Larson off for his first victory of the season in the end.

Can Penske Sweep The Major Events At The Indianapolis Motor Speedway This Year?

Team Penske is arguably the best there’s ever been at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in terms of the Indianapolis 500. Will Power just gave them their 17th Indy 500 back in May. If you want to win the ‘500, your best option is with Penske. Power, also took his No. 12 Chevrolet to victory in the INDYCAR Grand Prix on May 12 too. But, what about NASCAR?

Last Pit Stop Gets Keselowski Southern 500 Win For Weekend Sweep, 1-2 Penske Finish

Heading into the final pit stop of the race at the Darlington Raceway, it appeared that Sunday night’s Southern 500 was going to be Kyle Larson’s to lose. He dominated the entire 367 Lap race in his No. 42 Chevrolet including taking a win in each of the two stages of the night. If the race would have gone caution free in the closing stages like the rest of the night had practically gone, Larson would have ended up in victory lane. Instead, it was Brad Keselowski doing all the…

Newgarden Needing Max Points Over Final 2 INDYCAR Races

Josef Newgarden is hoping to become the first driver since Dario Franchitti from 2009 to 2011 to win back-to-back Verizon IndyCar Series championships. With only two races remaining in the season, he’s still mathematically eligible to do so. But, in order for the Team Penske driver to win his second straight Astor Cup championship trophy, he’s going to need to be darn near perfect the rest of the way.  Currently, Newgarden heads into Sunday’s Portland Grand Prix (2:30 p.m. ET/NBCSN/INDYCAR Radio Network) fourth in the standings, 78 points out. The…

Team Penske Has Solid Day In Pocono, Wrong End Of Downforce Levels Though

LONG POND, PA – The Team Penske trio leave Sunday’s ABC Supply 500 smiling. While none of them won the Verizon IndyCar Series race at the Pocono Raceway this weekend, all three did get a top 10 result on the Tricky Triangle. Will Power saw his two race win streak at Pocono come to an end but it’s not like his No. 12 Chevrolet was bad. The Australian would finish runner-up for his second straight podium on the season and third top six over the last four races.

Penske Overcomes Problems To Get All 3 Cars To Finish In The Top 10 At Michigan

BROOKLYN, Mich – I wrote on Saturday how Team Penske looked strong so far this weekend at the Michigan International Speedway but I didn’t know how much I trusted them. Both Joey Logano and Ryan Blaney were in the top 10 of every session including qualifying while Brad Keselowski showed some promise in his No. 2 Ford as well. But, over the last three weeks, all three drivers have struggled. Would the speed translate over to good finishes? Well, they actually did.

Penske Cars Strong This Weekend, But Do You Trust Them?

BROOKLYN, Mich – Now that all the preliminary action is done in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series at the Michigan International Speedway, some favorites are starting to creep up to win Sunday’s Consumers Energy 400 (2:30 p.m. ET/NBCSN/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). The problem lies, some of them are Team Penske drivers. But, do you trust them? Penske hasn’t won a non restrictor plate race since April 2017. Even in that race, the car was found to be illegal. Their last non plate win came in Atlanta in February 2017. They’ve had…
