Pre-Weekend Quick Takes

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

  1. The Sprint Cup Series will be in action in Kansas this weekend, with several drivers looking to rebound after disappointing starts in Charlotte. Matt Kenseth, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kyle Busch all ran into problems last week. Though they each have good records at Talladega, the goal for the three will be to win and not worry about next week. The goal will be the same for the other eight drivers remaining in the chase outside of Joey Logano.
  2. The NHRA will be back in action this week, as they series returns to Texas Motorplex in Dallas. With just three races left and drivers like Antron Brown (Top Fuel) and Andrew Hines (Pro Stock Motorcycle) dominating of late, every chance the other contenders get will need to be taken as they fight for more points.
  3. NASCAR announced earlier this week that the rules package utilized for Sprint Cup at Kentucky and Darlington this year will be used at every non-restrictor plate race in 2016. NASCAR should also look into running a lower downforce package at the restrictor plate tracks to help decrease some of the risk with pack racing and add some excitement back to Daytona and Talladega.

Have a great weekend and see you soon.
