Sunday Night Quick Takes

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

  1. Joey Logano won for the second straight week after making contact with and passing Matt Kenseth with five laps to go. Logano’s win at Kansas means the remaining seven spots are up for grabs at Talladega next Sunday, making what is normally an eventful race that much more interesting to watch.
  2. In NHRA, Funny Car’s Del Worsham extended his points lead, as did Erica Enders-Stevens in Pro Stock. While Ritchie Crampton in Top Fuel and Pro Stock Motorcycle’s Jerry Savoie won, Antron Brown and Andrew Hines remained in control of the championships. Just two races remain in the season, and although Brown and Enders-Stevens have sizable leads, the battles for the title will be very interesting to watch in each class.
  3. Kyle Busch won his 75th career Xfinity Series race at Kansas on Saturday, while Chris Buescher retained his points lead. Buescher’s ability to keep his lead at a stable margin has been impressive and although Chase Elliott was the preseason favorite for the title, Buescher may have the title all but wrapped up before the two-week break and the last three races of the year.

Have a great week and see you soon.
