In the high-pressure world of the Chase, for a fuel pump to fail on Jeff Gordon’s car… how is that possible?
0 cars dropped to the back of the field at the start of the Banquet 400 at Kansas Speedway.
In the wildest race in Kansas Speedway’s six-year history, Tony Stewart’s Home Depot Chevrolet coasted out of fuel for the final half-lap of the race, yet still managed to beat out Casey Mears to the line to win Sunday’s Banquet 400.
The Banquet 400 is the 29th race on the 36-race NASCAR Nextel Cup Series schedule and the third in the Chase for the Nextel Cup.
Who will follow the yellow brick road to glory at Kansas this weekend? Let’s figure out picks for your Banquet 400 fantasy team.
After their performance the first two races, is RCR now the team to beat in this Chase? If that’s true, who’s got the upper hand – Jeff Burton or Kevin Harvick?
Tony Stewart explained “it is a frustrating day when you are racing those guys that are in the top 10 in points.”
Jeff Burton and the Cingular team have had several strong runs early in recent races, but has been unable to close the deal until Sunday’s Dover 400.
For the first time since November 2001, Jeff Burton took the checkered flag in a Nextel Cup race, scoring the win in Sunday’s Dover 400.
The Dover 400 is the 28th race on the 36-race NASCAR Nextel Cup Series schedule and the second in the Chase for the Nextel Cup.
So, as the grand poombah of NASCAR, what would I do? First and foremost, I would “tweak” the Chase… tweak it to the point that it no longer exists.
The first Chase race has passed and there were clear winners and losers. Up next is Dover’s Monster Mile … who will slay the beast and who will be beaten?
