Truex to the top in Chicagoland practice

Truex to the top in Chicagoland practice

The 16-driver playoffs start today with the Tale of the Turtles 400 at the 1.5-mile Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Illinois. But with under five laps to go, while he was leading, the yellow came out when a lapped auto brushed the wall. He took home the checkered flag in 2015. Veterans also are prohibited from competing in the regular-season finale and all playoff races. Almirola ran a fast lap of 179.235 miles per hour.

Busch added another top-10 finish at Richmond, bringing his season total to 15. Byron is still in the playoffs, as his three wins earlier in the season locked him in.

"Coming to you, crashing", Busch told his crew after nine laps. Elliott was the fastest of the driver who ran 10 consecutive laps. Bell came to pit road for four tires and fuel and returned to the track in the third position. Truex Jr. and Kyle Larson, McMurray's teammate on Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates, both won four races. In 2014, his rookie year, he finished third. Last season was not as strong, though as he finished 18th.

Those two drivers finished tied in points, but Rhodes is in the playoffs by virtue of a tiebreaker.

WHY HE'LL WIN Larson has two victories over the past four races and is the hottest driver in NASCAR. With 28 laps remaining, the SiriusXM Tundra snapped loose off the corner and as Bell gathered it up and avoided hitting the outside wall, Sauter rocketed past him for the race lead. This might not qualify as analytics, but he is due for some good luck, isn't he? We had a couple of pit road penalties.

So who made the playoffs?

Ozil Planning To Quit Arsenal
Ozil played under the Portuguese boss whilst the pair were at Real Madrid together between 2010 and 2013. You know he is a special character.

Truex also will contend with Joe Gibbs Racing, the sister team to his Furniture Row Racing. However, he has finally started to pick things up over the past eight events. Other than the surprise DNF last weekend, momentum seems to be building. Through that span, he is averaging an 11th-place finish and has run inside the top 10 in four straight Chicagoland events.

The playoff format eliminates four drivers after each of three three-stage races. Expect the No. 20 to carry your DraftKings team towards the front. He will go into Chicagoland 8th in points, with 7 top tens, and 50 laps led. Dillon's 26 laps were the most completed.

September is right about the time of year where Johnson runs his best races. He has become the master of NASCAR's playoff system and you can never count him out. He has four straight finishes of seventh or better, all while starting 13th or worse.

On the ensuing restart, Jones was on the inside of the front row and Blaney was on the outside. Expect more of the same to continue on Sunday.

WHY HE'LL WIN Stewart-Haas Racing is facing lineup upheaval in 2018 with Danica Patrick out the door and maybe even Kurt Busch.
