Richmond - The Last Race Before The Chase!!

Post by GrillinInTheEye on Fri Sep 07, 2012 7:55 am




It's a great track at which to watch a race as there isn't a bad seat in the house and it's the perfect mix of speed, aggressiveness and action. For all intents and purposes, it's a battle of Jeff Gordon vs. Kyle Busch as far as Chase hopes go, but a handful of other drivers would like to punch their playoff ticket with a win under the lights this weekend.


Denny Hamlin. The Richmond native is hotter than anybody else in the sport right now, coming off back-to-back victories. And nobody, save perhaps his teammate, is better at this track. That being said, the September edition of the race is traditionally Hamlin's "playground" as he has his way with the competition. The No. 11 has finished second or better in three of the last six -- two of them being victories as the team ramps up for the Chase. Hamlin has led 250 or more laps at this track on three separate occasions and should be running up front nearly the entire night this Saturday.




Kyle Busch. Over the past five races at RIR, nobody has posted a better average finish (2.2), a better driver rating (125.4) or has led more laps (493) that Rowdy. Busch has finished sixth or better in 13 of his 15 career starts including four consecutive spring victories and a grand total of four runner-up finishes. Nobody in NASCAR history has a better career average finish than the driver of the No. 18 -- a pristine 4.73.



Carl Edwards. If only he can shake his bad luck. Edwards has posted five consecutive top-10 finishes at the track and led laps in each of those events. The No. 99 showed the way for more than half the race (206 of 400 laps) before a costly late penalty cost him a shot at victory (and, looking back, at the Chase). You know the team will be giving it everything they have this weekend.




Ken Schrader. No, I don't expect him to win the race...or even finish in the top 25. But the No. 32 car has been hovering right around the four-dollar mark for awhile. Schrader doesn't run a "start-and-park" operation and with the potential of cars getting sent to the garage early and/or often at Richmond, Schrader could pick up some easy positions. To boot, with the team often starting the race near the back, it minimizes your exposure to a negative points day (based primarily on position differential) and either driver regularly posts 20 or more points -- a brilliant return on the small investment.



LAST RACE OF SEGMENT TWO!!


GOOD LUCK TO ALL! ENJOY THE RACE!!



And just for San!!!
