Top Dog Michael McDowell spent numerous weeks being highlighted in this category earlier in the season, as he and his Front Row Motorsports teammate John Hunter Nemechek divided most of the top finishes between themselves.

What do you think of having the NASCAR Cup Series regular season ending at a superspeedway? Zach Gillispie: Superspeedways are equivalent to 2020, in a sense; both involve drama, chaos, and a whole lot of uncertainty.  While the events of the current calendar year have flipped the racing world upside down, the Daytona International Speedway regular-season …

Top Dog Two races in two days at Dover is one of those things I never thought I’d see.

But the largely abbreviated 311-mile versions that we saw this weekend were, to say …

Kaz Grala finished seventh in his NASCAR Cup Series debut last weekend. Was it a fluke, or has Grala been severely underrated? Jesse Johnston: Do I believe it was a fluke? Absolutely. As historic as that feat was, I am not convinced that any of Kaz Grala‘s good results at Daytona International Speedway — both the …

Top Dog A doubleheader last weekend at Michigan International Speedway meant twice the opportunity for the underdog class to snag a solid finish.

(Photo: Nigel Kinrade Photography)

Now less than 100 points above the cutoff, is it possible that Kyle Busch misses the NASCAR Cup Series postseason? Mark Kristl: With six races remaining in the regular season, all victors will make the playoffs. Kyle Busch’s odds of missing the playoffs, therefore, decrease if someone below the playoff cut line wins. That then would …
