We are done with two weeks of racing in Charlotte, and it is time we visit the tricky triangle. Is this a road course, flat track, or a tri-oval? How about all of the above? Only 3 turns, yet each one is different. When you attend this race in this spectacular part of the country it is like watching a road course because you can’t really see every turn on the track. 400 miles and the longest straightaway on the circuit means it is a battle of horsepower and endurance: endurance of the driver in the heat and of the motor for over 400 miles. Two teams account for 65% of the wins in the last ten years. The Hendrick Motorsports crew has dominated here; they have seven victories in the last 10 years including five of the last seven races. Right behind them we find Joe Gibbs Racing with six wins in the last ten years including four by #11 Denny Hamlin. Can these two teams maintain their dominance? We’ll find out on Sunday.

Tuesday look for our Top 10 drivers on flat tracks. Thursday we’ll have our Top 30 drivers in advance of the race at Pocono.
