.526 Mile, 12 Degrees of Banking

We are six races through the 10 race Chase for the Cup. #2 Brad Keselowski, #48 Jimmie Johnson, #11 Denny Hamlin, #15 Clint Bowyer and #5 Kasey Kahne are showing themselves as the cars the beat. This is the last of the season’s six short track races. We know that short tracks bring on short tempers and with just four races to go in the season, the drivers are doing what they must to gather enough points to claim a successful season. We probably won’t see a lot of patience on the track – bump and run could be the phrase of the day, or worse yet, dump and run. Since Rusty Wallace won here in spring of 2004 in a Dodge, we have only seen two different manufacturers take the checkered flag – Chevrolet has had 12 and Toyota four. Could this be the year Dodge or Ford gets back to victory lane? We’ll find out on Sunday.

 

Tuesday look for our Top 10 short track drivers.
