  • 5 Different Winners in 5 Weeks & Who Will Take Home the Clock

    03/30/2011
    “It’s never over till it’s over. That’s why it’s called racing.” In these two sentences, Kyle Busch summed up a nail-biting weekend of racing at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana. After leading the Auto Club 400 for 151 laps and closing in on his second sweep of the season, Busch watched his first place win disappear as Jimmie Johnson passed him up with two laps to go. Kevin Harvick, a native Californian, decided to make things even more interesting when he passed up both Busch and Johnson to win the Auto Club 500 by .144 of a second and claim his 15th Sprint Cup Series career victory. Harvick became the fifth different winner of the five NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races we have seen this season. The results in Fontana also moved Carl Edwards back to first in the Sprint Cup Series standings, making it his second time this season he has held the No. 1 spot. These guys are pros at making things interesting! Keep it up!Will Martinsville Speedway in Virginia witness yet another different Sprint Cup Series winner or will one of this season’s past five winners nab a second victory? I have a feeling that this coming weekend might be one of the most competitive yet. Martinsville Speedway is the shortest track in the Sprint Cup Series (.526 of a mile), but it has the longest history. Any driver would be honored to claim a victory at the only track that was on the schedule for the first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season that still hosts the event today. Also, if you win in at Martinsville, you don’t get the prototypical Sprint Cup Series trophy. You get a grandfather clock, called the Ridgeway Clock trophy. Unique and highly sought after, much like the hand-carved boot trophy that the winner of next week’s Samsung Mobile 500 will hoist.

  • Kyle Busch and the Bristol Sweep

    03/23/2011
    Race weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee finally brought Kyle Busch the victory that the past three speedways have refused him. This win might have been expected considering Busch’s history at Bristol, but for him it must have been a huge sigh of relief. Winning the Jeff Byrd 500 netted Busch his first win of the season and fifth career Sprint Cup Series victory at Bristol. What is it about the Vegas-born Busch and Tennessee?The excitement for Busch doesn’t stop there. He captured his second consecutive weekend sweep by winning the Nationwide Series race the previous day at Bristol. In August of last year, Busch made history by becoming the first driver to win three national series races (Sprint Cup, Nationwide, Camping World Truck Series) at the same track on the same weekend.
