Pre-Weekend Quick Takes

Spencer Neff


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

  1. The Chase for the Sprint Cup Series comes down to one final race and four drivers at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday. Jeff Gordon, Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. are looking for the title and whoever finishes best will take it.Although Gordon is the sentimental favorite to win in his final race, Harvick could be the one to beat as defending champion of the race and series.
  2. Chris Buescher has an 18-point lead over defending champion Chase Elliott in the Xfinity Series. Buescher, who has won twice this year, has been remarkably consistent and is just one solid finish away from taking the series title on Saturday at Homestead.
  3. Ford Championship Weekend kicks off Friday night with the Truck Series. Erik Jones is 19 points ahead of Tyler Reddick and 31 ahead of two-time defending champ Matt Crafton. Crafton, who is on pole tonight, will need some help to make it three titles in a row. The run Jones has been on this season has been impressive and he has cemented his status as one of the top young drivers in the sport.

Have a great weekend and see you soon.
