Keslowski Cashes in at Vegas

Sometimes, you win in Vegas based on how the other person bets. Brad Keslowski put himself in a position to win today and when Dale Earnhardt Jr. gambled on his fuel mileage. When Keslowski pushed Earnhardt Jr in the closing laps, Earnhardt lost his fuel mileage gamble. Keslowski drove past Jr exiting Turn 3 on the final lap. With this win, Keslowski swept the Vegas weekend with a Saturday win in the Nationwide race.

NASCAR in the desert

Harvick was “freaky fast” in his win at Phoenix.

Kevin Harvick continued his dominance in the desert with back to back wins. While not making the final round of knockout qualifying, Saturday practice confirmed that he could run up front. After the competition caution at Lap 37, Harvick continued to push his way to the front. On Lap 74, he swept down to the apron, passing Logano to take the lead. Later in the race, several cautions brought the field back together, but the #4 Chevy held the field at bay.

With the win, Harvick has taken a major step to assuring himself a step in this year’s Chase. Two Chevys are now virtually locked in making this writer wonder where the dominant Toyota is this season.

Daytona

Welcome to Twitter, Dale Jr! And oh yes! Congratulations on winning the Daytona 500! Over 10 hours from when you started. A severe thunderstorm warning turned into a tornado warning. A picture even surfaced and it looked like a tornado off in the distance. But the story of the day…the man in victory lane.

This was a great way to start the NASCAR Sprint Cup season. And that’s not even from a member of Jr. Nation!
