Sunday Night Quick Takes

Thank you for reading and I hope you had a great weekend. Here are some of the to headlines after the weekend in racing.

  1. Joey Logano won a rain-delayed race at Charlotte on Sunday as several big-name contenders, like Matt Kenseth and Dale Earnhardt Jr. had problems during the race. The issues in the first race for some of the 12 drivers left fighting for the championship will make for an interesting race at Kansas next week, and especially at Talladega, which is a perennial wild card for all the championship contenders.
  2. After polesitter Nico Rosberg experienced throttle issues early in the Russian Grand Prix in Sochi, teammate Lewis Hamilton  capitalized with a victory. Although Rosberg has often had the speed to keep up with Hamilton, mechanical  gremlins have gotten in the way several times and may be the biggest factor in Rosberg’s inability to win the championship.
  3. Austin Dillon won from pole in Friday night’s Xfinity Series, as Chris Buescher extended his points lead over Chase Elliott. With all four races remaining being companion events, wins may be hard to come by for Xfinity regulars, so getting as many points as possible will be imperative for Elliott and the rest of the field as they try to catch Buescher.

Have a great weekend and see you soon.
