Nine races remain for drivers to earn berths in NASCAR’s playoffs.

The following drivers would get in if the season ended today: Jimmie Johnson (three wins, 16 playoff points), Kyle Larson (two, 13), Martin Truex Jr. (two, 21), Brad Keselowski (two, 13), Ricky Stenhouse Jr. (two, 10), Kevin Harvick (one, eight), Ryan Blaney (one, eight), Kurt Busch (one, five), Ryan Newman (one, five), Austin Dillon (one, five), Kyle Busch (117 points above Joey Logano on the cutoff line, four playoff points), Chase Elliott (+82, two), Jamie McMurray (+62), Denny Hamlin (+56, 2), Clint Bowyer (+27), Matt Kenseth (+3, two).

The first four out would be: Logano (three points below Matt Kenseth on the cutoff line), Erik Jones (-56), Daniel Suarez (-88) and Trevor Bayne (-91).

Remember, a win gets a driver into the playoffs. Below is a list of winless drivers who have visited Victory Lane at upcoming tracks:

Kentucky: Ky. Busch, Kenseth

Indianapolis: Ky. Busch, McMurray, Paul Menard

Makes no sense, since the 6 was in the top ten in points, and Bubba does not have the 43 ride permanently?????  Or is it a problem keeping a sponsor for the 6?

The 6 car shut down operations a couple weeks ago
There is no longer a 6 car in the xfinity series


Roush to suspend operations of #6 NXS team

Roush Fenway Racing has announced that Bubba Wallace will transition from its No. 6 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) Ford Mustang to the iconic No. 43 Ford Fusion of Richard Petty Motorsports (RPM) where the 23-year-old will make his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series debut at Pocono Raceway. With Wallace's focus on the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, Roush Fenway Racing will suspend efforts on the No. 6 NXS team after this weekend's event in Pocono. Roush Fenway and Wallace will continue to evaluate additional potential opportunities for Wallace to run in NXS races. Wallace has driven for Roush Fenway in the NXS for the past two and a half seasons, scoring a career-high finish of second at Dover last spring.[More](6-5-2017)

NASCAR Talk! / anonymous bomb threat At Daytona international speedway
« Last post by kimmer on June 29, 2017, 08:17:01 PM »
DAYTONA BEACH — An anonymous bomb threat was called in to police Thursday afternoon at Daytona International Speedway, but law enforcement swept the area and found no traces of any explosive devices, Chief Craig Capri said.

The caller said multiple devices were on Speedway property, 1801 W. International Speedway Blvd., and they were set to go off in 30 minutes, but no detonations took place 30 minutes after the call, Capri said.

The search of the premises took an hour and nothing was found, police spokeswoman Lyda Longa said.

Police obtained a phone number, the chief said, and detectives are working to identify and locate the caller.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Daytona Beach Police Department’s Criminal Services Division at 386-671-5202.

Confused as to why Bubba Wallace did not drive the 6 at Iowa?  He was not driving the 43 at Sonoma, so why wasn't the 6 at Iowa?

NASCAR Talk! / Kyle Larson can’t be stopped, picks up fourth win in eight days
« Last post by kimmer on June 22, 2017, 07:16:37 AM »
By Pat DeCola NASCAR.com
Chip Ganassi Racing superstar Kyle Larson, fresh off his second Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series win of the season in Sunday’s race at Michigan International Speedway, has already piled on another pair of dubs in the two days since.

The 24-year-old was victorious once again in Tuesday night’s Arctic Cat All-Star Circuit of Champions at Ohio’s Sharon Speedway, a 3/8-mile dirt track that hosts sprint car races.

“Young Money” held off Carson Macedo and best friend Rico Abreu in a star-studded dirt field that also included NASCAR veteran Dave Blaney and XFINITY Series driver Cale Conley.

The Monster Energy Series points leader also won Monday’s Arctic Cat All-Star Circuit of Champions race at Wayne Count Speedway — holding off a second-place Kasey Kahne — and last week’s World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series race at Eagle Raceway in Nebraska, to spark the streak.
