Kyle Busch back to the winner’s circle.
Well awesome finish to the race on Sunday. Fresh tires should sure did make a big difference for the final 7 laps of the race. It was finally nice to see the cars being able to competitively race each other without the aero push. I know most people hate the road course races but I think there should be a road course in the chase. Road courses provide lots of action, lots of different strategies, lots of opportunities for different teams to win.
Obviously Nascar recognizes the current rules package is not ideal, not much side by side racing on the 1.5-2.0 mile tracks with the current configuration. The rules package change at Kentucky hopefully helps some of this aero push that happens when cars try to pass each other. I think the new rules package will continue to help drivers that like a loose race car like Kyle/Kurt Busch, Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick. If you like a tight race car you are probably not going to like it so much, but we will see how it all turns out.
In the pool we have Fergie One, Lethbridge Racing, Bumper-Bumper, Chick Hicks, and Three Amigos.
Rounding out the top 10 we have Momia-Mia, Suezie 13, Flip Flop, Team Midnite #1, and Go-Attack-Go.
Most points for the week goes to Head of the Pack with 356.
Biggest gain for the week goes to Kim-WAY up 16 spots.
Biggest slide for the week goes to Cheech down 15 spots.

Kurt Busch win’s the rain shorten June Michigan Race.
Frustrating day last Sunday in Michigan for everyone but Kurt Busch and team. Wanted to see Kyle Larson get the win, 3 laps short for the rain to come for that team. I was impressed with how fast they were able to dry the track after each red flag, those Air Titans are pretty slick.
Off weekend for racing for the Sprint Cup, time to enjoy some family time. Off to a road course next weekend, lots of drivers I am sure not looking forward to that.
Ended up entering AJ Allmendinger’s points wrong last week so with this week’s correction all of you that dropped last week because of that are back where you should be.
Fergie One, Chick Hicks, Bumper-Bumper, Lethbridge Racing and Suezie 13 are your first 5 positions in the pool.

Could you please sent Martin Truex Jr to the Winner’s Circle.
You have to love an underfunded team pulling off the win. For Martin it was his 3rd consecutive week that he lead the most laps and this time he finally did get the win. Awesome Martin, keep that car at the front and start knocking down a few more wins!
The Jeff Gordon and crew chief Allan Gustuson radio communication near the end of the race goes to show they are both frustration with their lack of performance. Then hearing Chad Knaus tell Jimmie “Why would you ever want to do what it is that I want you to do?” goes to show even if you are already having success this year doesn’t mean you are getting along. The desire to win each and every race is there for a large group of drivers, not winning is failure to a lot of them. Kevin Harvick is a prime example, consistently finishes 2nd if he doesn’t win and there is little to be excited about. There are so many drivers who would just love to finish on the lead lap or at least be competitive. There are so many of them that just seem to be riding around filling in the gaps between the dominant teams.
