JAW’s ‘HEARTRACERS / HEARTBREAKERS’
– 2016 Toyota Owners 400 edition

Date: 4-24-16

Racetrack: Richmond International Raceway

Pole Sitter: Kevin Harvick

HEARTRACERS:

  • Carl Edwards: Carl won the race with a last lap bump ’n run on Kyle Busch. He is Kyle’s teammate but it still felt good to do it without crashing Kyle.
  • Jimmie Johnson: Jimmie was in third place. That didn’t surprise anyone out of ‘six time’. He is right there in the points for another Chase appearance.
  • Kasey Kane: Kasey has had good finishes, and cars lately, staying consistent. He hasn’t won yet, but with all of these top-five finishes it could be coming soon.
  • Kurt Busch: Kurt led more laps towards his season total. He got another top-ten but he can’t close out races.
  • Kyle Busch: Kyle was second in the race which is good for the points, but he was passed on the last lap. Second gave him mixed feelings.
  • Kevin Harvick: Kevin led a bunch of laps in the race too. He wasn’t able to close out the deal like his teammate Kurt Busch.

JAW’s ‘HEARTRACERS / HEARTBREAKERS’
– 2016 Food City 500 edition

Date: 4-17-16

Racetrack: Bristol Motor Speedway

Pole Sitter: Carl Edwards

HEARTRACERS:

  • Carl Edwards: Carl led the most laps and won from pole this week. His pit crew was also the fastest throughout the race. He had the number one pit stall and won almost every race off of pit road. In the end he was flawless and his team was mistake-free.
  • Kurt Busch: Kurt led 41 laps and finished third. He is in the Chase with consistency. He will hope to win a race but even if he doesn’t it looks like he will get in the Chase on points.
  • Chase Elliott: Chase is working his way towards a win with another top-five. He is also having a better rookie season than Jeff Gordon did. The man he replaced was Rookie of the Year in 1993. He also crashed ten times that season.
  • Trevor Bayne: Trevor was in the top-five after a good run for Roush Racing. They have been up and down as a team this year. If you didn’t know years ago they were dead even with Hendrick on dominance. They have fallen far.
  • Matt DiBenedetto: Matt got a shocking sixth-place finish for Burger King Racing. He really showed off this week.
  • Landon Cassill: Landon led 40 laps and got a mid-pack finish. That is a huge step forward from where he was last season.
