1.54 Miles 24 Degrees of Banking


We have just two races to go until the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Atlanta is the fastest and probably the #1 favorite track amongst the drivers to drive on. Great sweeping turns and a smooth surface are two of the main reasons. At 1.54 miles it is a tad bigger than the many other “cookie cutter tracks.” Hendrick Motorsports and Joe Gibbs Racing are tied with five wins each in the last ten years. That is ten of the last 18 races! No question these two teams dominate here. Brad Keselowski, Kurt Busch and Jeff Gordon are on the outside looking in the Top 12 and  Ryan Newman and Martin Truex are just barely hanging in with the Chase drivers.. This race is the third night race here in what is turning into a Labor Day weekend tradition and P-A-R-T-Y. Who will lock into the Chase? It looks very likely we’ll find out on Sunday night.


Tuesday look for our Top 10 Teams for week 25.  Thursday we rank the top 30 drivers for the Advocare 500.
