It doesn’t seem that long ago that 42 drivers showed up at Daytona in February to get into the Daytona 500. Two drivers were eliminated in the duel races. Forty drivers started the race hoping not only to win the race but kick off the 2017 season in the best way possible. Kurt Busch won and left 39 drivers thinking we’ll try again next race. Fourteen different drivers found Victory Lane from nine different teams this season. Nine races ago sixteen drivers made it into the NASCAR Playoffs and a chance to win the Cup –  twelve drivers have been slowly eliminated leaving four to decide the 2017 Monster Energy Cup Champion. Now after thirty-five races, it all comes down to one race, all points have been thrown out. It is all about just this one race.  Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch, and Brad Keselowski.will all battle for the Championship. This track was reconfigured just before the 2003 season. Since that time four teams have found Victory Lane.  Roush Fenway Racing has the most victories since then six. But none since 2010. Joe Gibbs Racing has four wins with two coming from Denny Hamlin in 2009 and 2013 and one coming from Kyle Busch in 2015. Stewart Haas Racing has two wins with one coming from Kevin Harvick in 2014. Hendrick Motorsports has two. Neither Martin Truex Jr. nor Brad Keselowski have won here. The highest finisher will win the Championship and a win will put you in. Who will snag the Championship?  We’ll know on Sunday.
