Yesterday’s race at Phoenix International Raceway, proved to be a major disappointment for some, and a big win for others.
With only two spots available, six drivers had to be on the top of their game and have one of the best days of this season. Matt Kenseth, Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Joey Logano, Kurt Busch, and Denny Hamlin battled for 324 laps before Joey Logano finally took the checkered flag. Kyle Busch’s second place finish allowed him to take the last spot in the final four.
In all honesty, I’m very happy that Kevin Harvick isn’t going to get a chance at the Sprint Cup. He’s my uncle’s favorite driver, and one of my least favorite. His attitude towards his entire crew this year, has been horrible, and although I’m not a fan, I’d be disappointed if I actually was.
I’m not thrilled about Joey Logano being in the final four, along with Jimmie Johnson, but when Kyle Busch wins, it’ll give me satisfaction knowing he took away Jimmie’s chance at a 7th championship. Ha!
My fingers are crossed that Kyle will dominate and put on a fantastic final show.
