Who’s Hot and Who’s Not In NASCAR: Dover – Kansas Edition

Which drivers have what it takes to survive the Contender Round and which are lucky to have made it this far? That’s what Who’s Hot and Who’s Not is for.

Thinkin’ Out Loud – Dover – Chase Race No. 3 – The field is trimmed to 12

Key Moment – The pass for the lead by Jeff Gordon over Brad Keselowski with 95 laps to go was the difference in the race. Keselowski was in the top 3 all day long and looked to be the driver to beat once Kevin Harvick’s car had issues with an inner liner going flat. Gordon ran down Keselowski and passed him on lap 305 and never looked back. In a Nutshell - The drama of the first ‘Richmond moment’ of the ... Read More »

NASCAR’s Biggest Nightmare: Predictable

NASCAR’s Biggest Nightmare: Predictable

It was supposed to be a history-making moment. NASCAR’s first ever “Chase elimination” race, the lynchpin of its new format was supposed to make Dover a “Game 7” atmosphere, knocking potential title contenders out of the prizefight early. After Loudon, where top drivers got knocked around like pinballs, the bar was set for aggression, strategy, even panic as so many hovered around the “cutline,” whittling an expanded postseason field from 16 to a far more manageable 12. Dover’s Monster Mile, ... Read More »

Quotes to Remember: AAA 400

Quotes to Remember: AAA 400

“I don’t know what happened to Kevin Harvick. It was unfortunate for him. He was the class of the field. We were tuning on it to try to keep even with him. When I saw him go out, I knew we could compete with the No.2 (Brad Keselowski) car. The No. 2 was really good on short runs, but we could run him down. Of course he made us work for it there at the end because he was so ... Read More »

92 and Counting: Jeff Gordon Wins at Dover

On a day where much of the talk was about Chase eliminations and drivers being on the bubble. Jeff Gordon took another huge step towards immortality at Dover International Speedway. Gordon took advantage of a lightning fast pit stop by his No. 24 Drive to End Hunger crew with around seventy laps to go to separate himself from a hard-charging Brad Keselowski with about 20 laps to go and coasted from there to a 4.352-second margin of victory. Defending race winner Jimmie ... Read More »

Who’s Hot and Who’s Not: New Hampshire – Dover Edition

There’s only one race left in the opening Challenger Round of the NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup, but plenty of uncertainty after the Sylvania 300. Nine championship hopefuls are separated by only 12 points heading into the first elimination and four won’t advance, making this edition of Who’s Hot and Who’s Not a sizzler. Through two races, the revised Chase is playing out just as NASCAR CEO Brian France and other higher-ups envisioned it would. The AAA 400 at ... Read More »

Thinkin’ Out Loud: Sylvania 300 – Joey Logano Punches His Ticket While Others Punch the Wall

Key Moment – On the penultimate restart with 29 laps to go, Brad Keselowski started on the inside of leader Kevin Harvick. As they raced through turns one and two, Keselowski slipped up and made slight contact with Harvick, moving him up and out of the groove. Joey Logano pounced on the opportunity and swept to the inside at the exit of turn two and grabbed the lead, not relinquishing it for the rest of the race. In a Nutshell ... Read More »

The end of last Sunday’s race at Chicagoland saw Brad Keselowski and Kyle Larson running up front for much of the event, with Keselowski winning and guaranteeing himself one of 12 spots in the next round of the Chase. Rookie Larson, through hard racing with Kevin Harvick, then Jeff Gordon kept trying for his first Sprint Cup win before ultimately coming up short. And while there are no ... Read More »
