With the NASCAR season two-thirds of the way gone, we’re grading all the drivers and teams once again on their performance so far in 2010.
With 12 races remaining in the 2010 NASCAR Cup season, two teams still have a realistic shot at re-entering the Top 35 in owner points.
Last week at New Hampshire, all three cars from the Front Row Motorsports stable left the track on the brink of Top-35 oblivion. Two days after Travis Kvapil’s No. 38 was sent home early with the team’s first DNQ of 2010, teammates Kevin Conway and David Gilliland could only muster 30-something finishes, dropping the Nos. …
“Same old Daytona, cars moving around and bouncing around and handling came into play and you saw a lot of passing and shuffling…”
Today, we grade the drivers from AJ Allmendinger to Brian Vickers, the top 40 in the NASCAR Sprint Cup standings to date.
Would Kevin Conway’s No. 38 “stay out of trouble” strategy be enough to keep his nose clean at “The Action Track” in Richmond?
Back with his TaxSlayer.com sponsorship, Bobby Labonte was an early threat for a top-10 finish at the same track he scored TRG’s lone top-10 run last fall.
Two driver changes, one each in NASCAR’s Cup and Nationwide divisions, were announced Tuesday (April 13).
After he put up the third-fastest time in Friday’s opening practice session, Marcos Ambrose’s Toyota became a sleeper pick for a top-five run at Martinsville.
When 35th-ranked Mike Bliss and his No. 36 were sent home after Friday’s qualifying session, rookie Kevin Conway breathed a sigh of relief.
Our new Man on the Bubble is Mike Bliss, author of another top 25 in Sunday’s race that snagged him 33 valuable owner points.
If the motor gremlins return next week, expect Marcos Ambrose to be even more aggressive at Bristol to keep his locked-in spot.
