Truex finishes eighth, Jones 15th at QuikTrip 500 in Atlanta

Truex finishes eighth, Jones 15th at QuikTrip 500 in Atlanta

"We know the deal".

Answer to the Question everyone is asking me- No we don't know this man in the M&Ms hat, how he got in victory lane or why he creeping. I absolutely believe this will be a breakout season for the young driver. It was his first win at the track in nine tries.

If you don't see a Joe Gibbs Racing driver when visiting the NASCAR standings webpage, just keep scrolling down.

"I raced around Brad a lot throughout the day", Larson said in the media center following the race.

Denny Hamlin has 15/1 odds today, but I like those odds for a driver of his caliber. Winning here five times and has other top 10 finishes. He wound up running out front for a staggering 292 of 325 laps, usually ceding the lead only when he came into the pits.

Despite the issues for the program, Hamlin was confident in his vehicle prior to a mechanical issue sending him to the garage. We had our own issues, and we fought through it all day.

We just may have to wait until NASCAR's 2018 schedule comes out to find out.




Even attempting to sound confident in his team, Hamlin didn't sound convinced. "There's something that I think a lot of guys are kind of aware of that goes on on pit road, and that's something we need to address kind of internally".

Re-thinking the Atlanta repave?

And if the on-track performance from Sunday is indicative of things to come for Stewart-Haas Racing, they're probably in a pretty good place moving forward.

When you think of Martinsville, you automatically think Jimmie Johnson and Denny Hamlin. I say that because it can affect how teams rotate tires, a cooler track wont melt down tires as fast as it will when its 110 degrees plus. The only problem with these older racing surfaces, as we saw from the most recent Texas Motor Speedway weekend before its repave began at the start of 2017, is that they make tracks nearly impossible to dry in a timely fashion when a race weekend happens to be rainy.

Harvick seemed poised to victory at the 1.54-mile trioval for the first time since his initial Cup victory in 2001, just three races after he got his chance following the death of Dale Earnhardt. The aging asphalt surface is bumpy and striped with fix marks. But on that final trip down pit road, the bad-luck snake struck, and Harvick was caught speeding on pit road.

It has been well documented over the years, drivers resist new track surfaces, particularly at larger racetracks. "We got right back to where we were, which was a big gain". "I don't think Kevin's (Harvick) auto was any better than ours". It's one of several reasons Johnson has a record-tying seven titles under his belt, Johnson can get back on track in earning an eighth this week. His average finish at the track is also 9.611.

In recent years, tracks like Bristol and Darlington have lost some of their luster among drivers due to repave projects.
