Veteran NASCAR analyst Kenny Bruce and RotoWire‘s C.J. Radune join Greg DePalma to look ahead at a season of change on the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup circuit – one without such mainstays as Dale Earnhardt Jr., Matt Kenseth and Danica Patrick, but plenty of young talent. Martin Truex Jr. begins his title defense in Sunday’s Daytona 500.
Greg DePalma and Eric Smith of Race Review Online prepare to raise the curtain on Daytona Speedweeks, as 17 drivers will be on the grid Daytona for Sunday’s Advance Auto Parts Clash all-star exhibition. Eight cars belong to NASCAR’s three powerhouse teams, which have combined to win all but three of the past 20 Speedweeks races.
Lets face facts, NASCAR is in a transition period. Gone are big stars like Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Danica Patrick, Matt Kenseth and Carl Edwards. They’re not walking in that door anymore.
After a thrilling season finale weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway, let’s wrap up the season with the final edition of takeaways. It wasn’t just about Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season finale, it was just how great a weekend it was for NASCAR in general.
Greg DePalma and PSN motorsports analyst C.J. Radune look back at the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup season and break down what’s to be expected in Sunday’s Ford EcoBoost 400 finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. In a Championship 4 of two Toyota drivers and two Ford drivers, their final picks backed one of each.
We have Toyota vs. Ford, with Martin Truex Jr. and Kyle Busch in the Toyota camps and Kevin Harvick and Brad Keselowski for Ford. With Sunday’s Ford EcoBoost 400 being far different from the other 35 in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season, the first driver among those four to cross the finish line wins the 2017 championship.
Greg DePalma and Kenny Bruce of NASCAR.com take a driver-by-driver analysis of the four men still with an opportunity to capture the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup in this weekend’s finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Eric Smith of Race Review Online also stops by to discuss top race trends.
PSN motorsports analyst C.J. Radune and Eric Smith of Race Review Online join Greg DePalma to discuss the way Brad Keselowski became the final name to fill out the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series‘ Championship 4 in Phoenix – as the beneficiary of some late payback when Denny Hamlin got nudged into the wall by Chase Elliott.
