JAW’s ‘HEARTRACERS / HEARTBREAKERS’
– 2016 Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race Edition

Date: 8-21-16

Racetrack: Bristol Motor Speedway

Pole Sitter: Carl Edwards

HEARTRACERS:

  • Kevin Harvick: Kevin led the second most laps and won the race. He benefited from Kyle Busch and other contenders crashing. He was left with Ricky Stenhouse Jr., who he had no problem beating. He added a Chase win and retook the points lead from Brad Keselowski.
  • Ricky Stenhouse Jr.: Ricky got second place in the race. He most likely would not have finished there if ten of the top eleven cars hadn’t had problems.
  • Austin Dillon: Austin was another car to benefit from the carnage of the race. Unlike Ricky Stenhouse Jr., who is far outside the Chase, Austin was all but ensuring a Chase berth on points.
  • Chris Beuscher: Chris’s pace was really good even if he benefited from crashes to his rivals. He was a top-fifteen car for the first time all year. He most importantly got into the top 30 in points by a big 13 points.
  • Jamie McMurray: Jamie drove a good consistent race to help secure his Chase berth. He is also likely to make the Chase on points.
  • Denny Hamlin: Denny was the only top ten driver other than Kevin Harvick not to crash. He did get a pit penalty that kept him from challenging Kevin Harvick. He got a top-five finish.

JAW’s ‘HEARTRACERS / HEARTBREAKERS’
– 2016 Cheez-It 355 at the Glen edition

Date: 8-7-16

Racetrack: Watkins Glen International

Pole Sitter: Carl Edwards

HEARTRACERS:

  • Denny Hamlin: Denny won the race for Gibbs’ tenth win of the season. The rest of NASCAR teams’ other wins are 12. They have almost as many wins as one team as the rest of NASCAR combined. He got the lead after teammate Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski went wide at turn one.
  • Joey Logano: Joey was second in the race. He had damage on the car from contact. He might have been able to challenge Denny Hamlin for the win without the damage. Due to other drivers’ problems he got a very good second-place considering his damage to the car. He won the Xfinity race the day before and got second in the Cup race.
  • Brad Keselowski: Brad had the race won until he went too deep into turn one on a restart. He led the most laps and got a top-five finish. He is also tied for the most wins this season heading into the Chase.
  • AJ Allmendinger: AJ had his best run of the year in fourth place. He needed the win for the Chase so it was bittersweet.
  • Jamie McMurray: Jamie is in the Chase at the moment on points. He got a good top-ten finish to extend his lead over the cutoff.
  • Casey Mears: Casey got one of his best finishes of the year after running strong. He stayed out of trouble and had some decent pace. His team is much faster this year than before.

JAW’s ‘HEARTRACERS / HEARTBREAKERS’
– 2016 Pennsylvania 400 edition

Date: 8-1-16

Racetrack: Pocono Raceway

Pole Sitter: Martin Truex Jr.

HEARTRACERS:

  • Chris Buescher: Chris pitted at the right time to stay out later in the race. As the main pack was catching him before he was going to pit a bank of fog covered part of the track. That turned out to be the end of the race over an hour later. As the fog covered everything to the point of no visibility Chris won the race. He had been the leader at the time of caution. It was a big win for him and owner Bob Jenkins. He might make the Chase and he got the team’s outright second win since 2013.
  • Brad Keselowski: Brad was in position to win if there were no red flag. He got second and a good points day.
  • Regan Smith: Regan got lucky like Chris Buescher from the fog and finished third. It was a big race for that team compared to where they usually run.
  • Kevin Harvick: Kevin got another top-five finish towards the Chase. He is the points leader and extending his lead.
  • Kyle Larson: Kyle could have also won without the fog but the team waited too long to pit him. He was behind the guys that were chasing him. Kyle did lead laps and almost won the race. He got a top-ten finish.
  • Denny Hamlin: Denny got the best finish for Gibbs in the race. He got a top-ten but he almost feels like the team is capable of winning every race.

JAW’s ‘HEARTRACERS / HEARTBREAKERS’
– 2016 Combat Wounded Coalition 400 edition

Date: 7-24-16

Racetrack: Indianapolis Motor Speedway

Pole Sitter: Kyle Busch

HEARTRACERS:

  • Kyle Busch: Kyle won the race. He became the first driver ever to win the pole and the race, for the Xfinity Series and Cup Series, in the same weekend.
  • Kyle Larson: Kyle ran around the top-five the whole race. He finished in fifth place. He was trying to lock himself in the Chase with a win.
  • Austin Dillon: Austin had a good car in the race and passed a bunch of drivers. It ultimately led to a top-ten finish. He was another driver that needed Chase points.
  • Paul Menard: Paul always runs pretty well at this track, as a former winner. He got a decent finish but he ran well inside the top-ten at one point.
  • Jeff Gordon: Jeff did well coming off the couch in extreme conditions. He drove a car that may have been good enough for a twentieth finish close to the top-ten. Just like Tony Stewart he had a victory lap to celebrate his possible last race there. He never had a car that could contend for the win which was a shame for the moment he was in.
  • Chris Buescher: Chris had a great run in his B-Team Cup ride near the top-ten. He is advertising for a better ride in Cup.

For those of you NASCAR fans that like stats and love to hate commercials, here is the breakdown for Sunday’s race.

I began recording the times at the Invocation of the race at 3:00 PM, and stopped at the waving of the checkered flag at 6:47 PM (all times are EDT). I did not keep records for the pre- and post-race coverage.

Please note that during this broadcast, there was a power outage in my area. While it was only momentary, it took my cable box a few minutes to power back up. Therefore, there is 5 minutes missing from this report (during which time I believe I missed at least one side-by-side commercial).

NBCSN was the broadcast team for this event.

JAW’s ‘HEARTRACERS / HEARTBREAKERS’
– 2016 New Hampshire 301 edition

Date: 7-17-16

Racetrack: New Hampshire Motor Speedway

Pole Sitter: Jimmie Johnson

HEARTRACERS:

  • Matt Kenseth: Matt won the race and proved the Gibbs dominance at this track lately. He was happy to win over teammate Kyle Busch to get all the credit.
  • Joey Logano: Joey got another top-five finish and is well seated in the Chase. He will be ready for elimination rounds to have better luck at advancing.
  • Kevin Harvick: Kevin finished fourth in the race. That was very important for his points lead. With his challengers having problems Kevin made ground in the points.
  • Jamie McMurray: Jamie almost got a top-five while going for a Chase spot. He needed a win and came pretty close this week. He might be able to break through like Tony Stewart did with a win.
  • Kyle Busch: Kyle led 133 laps today inside the top-ten. This was a good run for Kyle but he missed out on a weekend sweep.
  • The Love Birds (Danica Patrick and Ricky Stenhouse Jr.): Danica and Ricky got good finishes inside the top-fifteen. The both ran well and these were two of their best finishes.

For those of you NASCAR fans that like stats and love to hate commercials, here is the breakdown for Sunday’s race.

I began recording the times at the Invocation of the race at 1:23 PM, and stopped at the waving of the checkered flag at 4:39 PM (all times are EDT). I did not keep records for the pre- and post-race coverage.

NBCSN was the broadcast team for this event.

Please note that in addition to the commercials and promos listed below there is always a sponsor’s logo that changes throughout the race near the race ticker.
