Edwards wins the race, Logano & Truex make the Chase

Controversy and this time, Clint Bowyer is in the middle of it.  With 7 laps to go, Bowyer spun out coming out of Turn 3.  Early thought was Earnhardt Jr. has taken the air off of Bowyer’s already loose car.  However, a spin was about to take bring the caution out, cutting into Keslowski’s lead by bring the field back together, and allow Edwards to take the lead on the restart.  With Edwards winning and Keslowski dropping back, this allowed from Bowyer teammate, Truex, to make the Chase. Ahhh…team orders.

The weather was great all weekend, as forecast.

Kyle Busch clinches Chase Spot with Win

Written by Steven B. Wilson, Speedway Digest

Kyle Busch spent the first 300 miles of the Advocare 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway complaining about his race car.  First, it was “plowing”.  Then it was “way too loose.”

By the end of the 500 miles, though, Busch was the man out front as he held off a fast-closing Joey Logano to win his fourth race of the season and clinch a spot in this year’s Chase for the Sprint Cup.

The complexion of the race changed with 37 laps to go when… (continued)

Kevin Harvick holds off Kyle Busch for thrilling Atlanta win

Written by NASCAR Wire Service

In a battle of Sprint Cup regulars, Harvick edged Busch for the in Saturday night’s Great Clips/Grit Chips 300 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, after the drivers waged… (continued)

Friday – The skies were partly cloudy but hazy through the day at Atlanta Motor Speedway. The Nationwide Series had their practice sessions while the Sprint Cup Series has both their practice and qualifying sessions. High temperatures reach 90°F while winds were light & variable through the day.

Sprint Cup qualifying was a bit of a paradox compared to the speeds seen in the day’s practice session. While Brad Keslowski led the pack in practice, he only qualified 23rd. Meanwhile, rookie of the year leader Ricky Stenhouse Jr left his rookie stripe behind as he won his first career Coors Light Pole. Did I mentioned that Stenhouse Jr’s practice speed was 23rd? Carl Edwards will be starting on the outside pole, while Montoya, Hamlin and Gordon round out the top five. Starting up front does tend to be promising – 60 of the 105 (57.1%) winners at Atlanta have started in the Top 5. (Jayski.com/NASCAR)
