Chase Thread 2017
« on: September 17, 2017, 02:57:47 pm »

Looks like a race to see which Toyota team can win it all this year.  Is it gonna be Kyle Busch or Martin Truex? 

Or will someone else jump up and surprise everyone?

Kyle handily won the first stage in Chicagoland.

Nascar has officials from the 78 and 18 team in the blue tent.  Kyle Busch just served s drive-by penalty - crew members were over the wall too early.

Because some dummy decided to switch crews. Always thought Coach was smarter then that.

yup, always a good idea to stick a mic in someones face right after they get out of a race car. Ypu, Kyle is the only one who has ever given a bad interview after a tough loss. They should ban him from racing...

The entire sports world does that after games and the overwhelming majority of sports figures give a better interview than his sorry, condescending, spoiled, smarmy ass.

I think if Ricky can keep out of the wall he gets it.  He was a 25th place car yesterday and got home in 15th.

1. Martin Truex Jr.: 3,059 points
2. Kyle Busch: 3,041 points
3. Kyle Larson: 3,034 points
4. Brad Keselowski: 3,020 points
5. Jimmie Johnson: 3,017 points
6. Kevin Harvick: 3,015 points
7. Denny Hamlin: 3,013 points
8. Ricky Stenhouse Jr.: 3,010 points
9. Ryan Blaney: 3,008 points
10. Chase Elliott: 3,006 points
11. Matt Kenseth: 3,005 points
12. Jamie McMurray: 3,003 points

Pretty salty 12.  Shocked McMurray made it and surprised Kurt Busch faltered.  The top 3 positions right now are definitely THE best of the entire 12.  Be shocked if they are not 3 of the 4 in Homestead.

Impressed Harvick was as consistent week after week considering how up and down Stewart-Haas has been the whole year.

I didn't get to follow the last 1/3 of the race.  Had Harvick as my A driver.  At one point he was among the fastest.  No clue what happened to him.

It's hard to see anyone knocking off Toyota, but with 2 laps to go in Stage 1 at Charlotte, The Closer is running strong.

Under caution with 8 laps to go, Harvick's crew cost him 4 positions on pit road.  1.1 seconds slower than Chase Elliott and Martin Truex.

Well as usual one of my fantasy drivers always has major issues. This week it was the 18 who has failed me almost each time I've used him the past few years. I think I'll use him the next two weeks just to jinx him.

If Ricky can somehow hit for the trifecta it will really make Kansas interesting.  Especially if Kyle is fighting for a spot.

Stenhouse has to be hedging Dega.  Plate tracks are where the Fords have been tops.  I'd be shocked if Truex and Busch don't try and just play points.

I love that a plate race is a playoff race. Guys ride around with asses puckered in a normal plate race but now the contenders are all puckered tighter. And the rest of the field's asses are puckered cause they don't want to be the guy that screws up and takes out some of the playoff guys  :D

Chalk up another win for Truex Jr.

Currently averaging a 2.8 finish at the 1.5-mile tracks.  A strong finish could still tie or beat Bobby Labonte's season record of 2.4.  Think about that - that's some serious dominance.

Maybe.  He's got the 1.5 tracks, but didn't dominate at Texas earlier and wasn't real good at Miami last year.  All four remaining are in Busch's wheel house.

Harvick just joined Kyle Busch and Truex as a contender at Homestead.  Dominating finish at Texas, with Phoenix coming up.... ready to see him get some momentum and take out the Toyotas that dominated all year.

Burnout time - prayers for that engine.

Better be aggressive driving to win then.  You got the top 3 all but locked in.  Only guarantee is to win at Phoenix with points the way they are.

The only way a Chevy makes the final 4 is with a win.  Because you know the entire 8 will be running in the top 10 or 15.

He's been strong at Homestead too.  It would be my dream come true to see the Toyotas dominate all year just for Harvick to sweep the final 3 races.
