Last race: Martin Truex Jr. won his fourth race of the year at Watkins Glen.
Problem was, his opponent was in no mood to let him pass. Truex has a 116-point lead over Kyle Busch in the standings. It took place after the unveiling of the all-new 2018 Camaro ZL1 race vehicle which will be used by the drivers next season. But he'll face stiff challenges from Chip Ganassi Racing driver Kyle Larson, who's won the last two races at MI, and Leavine Family Racing's Michael McDowell, who's arguably been the best Chevrolet driver for most of the past month. "You lose time in one corner and you can't make it up". He has a great shot to be the top dominator this week and pick up his first career win at MI. These are the drivers I love to add to my cash lineups on a weekly basis. Toyotas have led 88 percent of the laps in the last three oval races.
"I've been hearing you all the last few days". Three of his last four wins came after he was forced to start in the back. Logano has three top ten finishes in the thirteen races since Richmond and has an average finish this season of 16th, his worst since 2012. He starts from the all mighty pole position and posted the second fastest speed in practice #2 and the fastest speed in final practice.
"I think as a team we've been getting better and better", he said. "I probably don't even get on the track until 8:30 or 9 a.m. on Saturday, so the logistics part of it isn't that tricky". That could change this weekend as Jr. presents some nice place differential value. They will be starting 12th but continually got better through the weekend and posted the third fastest speed in final practice.
Larson said Ganassi is making an exception for Saturday night. He has finished inside the top 20 in five of his last six races overall and finished 20th, 24th, and 14th in his only three races at MIS. I also have available my Race by Race Trends sheet you can view as well.
