Chase Starts This Weekend!

This marks the start of the chase for 16 drivers, while the rest of the field prepare to get better for next year. What drivers are gonna be eliminated? Which chase drivers are going to win to move to the next round?chicagoland-speedway

First race, is at Chicagoland this is one race that can come down to gas mileage, but who is the favorite going in? Most people would say Tony Stewart because he is the all time winner at Chicagoland, but with how he been running the last couple of years a win is in doubt. I say Brad Keselowski is the favorite. He won here back in 2012, and he also is the defending race winner. If it comes down to gas mileage Brad has had success at winning them as well, so watch out for Bad Brad this weekend?

Second race, is at Loudon a flat one mile track, this is the second and final visit the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series make to the track this year. Who is the favorite going in? I would have to say it has to be Kyle Busch who won here back in July, and has ran very well the past couple of years, but I am picking someone else to win, his teammate Matt Kenseth he has been on fire.Jimmie-Johnson-Texas-Spring-2015-Win--675x340

Third race, is at Dover this is one race where it’s you pick second place unless you are picking Jimmie Johnson to win. Why? Because he is the all time winner at the track with 9 wins, including the race earlier this year. He has lead the most laps in most all the recent races, seems no matter where they qualify they always go to the front and stay there. Unless something happens to Jimmie Johnson this is race to lose.

First driver, is Jamie McMurray. This is his first chase, and going to end fast as he usually finishes Top 15 to Top 20 on a weekly bases. You’re not going to make it far finishing in the mid teens in the chase.

Second driver, is Paul Menard same as Jamie above this is his first time in the chase, but not being able to get Top 10’s is going to hurt him. Paul is trying to point his way through the chase like his teammate last year Ryan Newman did and hopefully win a title that way.

Third driver, is Clint Bowyer who’s team is going to be shut down at season’s end, but I think not knowing what the future holds for the driver, and rest of the team they are going to perform alright, but not good enough to make it through the first round of the chase.

Fourth driver, is Martin Truex, Jr starting off hot having 15 top 10’s in 16 races has them looking like they were the team to beat. But ever since they won at Pocono back in June, they have had bad luck which I think will continue. Therefore, leading to an early chase exit for the one car team this year.
