Last year, Kyle Busch dominated at Martinsville Speedway and swept the weekend with wins in both the Camping World Truck Series and the Monster Energy Cup Series. This year, he led 274 laps but came up short on the final lap. The win went to Brad Keselowski (PUKE!), who scored his very first Matinsville Grandfather clock.
What do you guys think about Ryan Blaney? I didn’t expect that kid to do so well this year, since it’s his first year as a full time Cup driver, but he’s sure proved me wrong. That kid can drive. He’s aggressive enough to get the nose of his car where he wants it, but not aggressive enough to make the win. In time, kid. In time.
And since we’re talking about rookies, how about Erik Jones? What ya think of him? He drove for Kyle Busch, so he has definitely learned from watching him. I expect to see this kid in victory lane before long.
Martin Truex Jr has had an amazing couple of years. That guy has definitely got some win coming his way. Hopefully!
Kyle Busch has come up from P10 to P6 in the standing. Great news! Always moving forward.
On to Texas…..
