JAW’s ‘HEARTRACERS / HEARTBREAKERS’
– 2016 Hellmann’s 500 edition

Date: 10-23-16

Racetrack: Talladega Superspeedway

Pole Sitter: Martin Truex Jr.

HEARTRACERS:

  • Joey Logano: Joey led 45 laps and was unpassable at the end of the race. He moved on in the Chase when he needed to. He was on the border line.
  • Brian Scott: Brian got his best run of the year in second place. He helped out his own cause for staying in that team next year.
  • Denny Hamlin: Denny won a tie break with Austin Dillon to move on in the Chase. He finished in third place for a lucky advance.
  • Kurt Busch: Kurt advanced to the third round of the Chase with his consistency. He ran a safe race.
  • Kyle Larson: Kyle got one of the best finishes for an eliminated Chase driver yet again. He was in the top-ten proving he just had a bad race when he got eliminated.
  • Kevin Harvick: Kevin had a chance as a Chase winner to go for the win. He could finish anywhere and advance. He was much further back in the race than I thought he would be. He still got a solid finish

JAW’s ‘HEARTRACERS / HEARTBREAKERS’
– 2016 Hollywood Casino 400 edition

Date: 10-16-16

Racetrack: Kansas Speedway

Pole Sitter: Matt Kenseth

HEARTRACERS:

  • Kevin Harvick: Kevin answered everybody about his record of advancing in the Chase. By winning, he did so again. He beat Carl Edwards to race in the round of eight.
  • Carl Edwards: Carl thought he had the race won until a late caution. He got beat by Kevin Harvick. Carl was second. He did close in on advancing in the Chase.
  • Joey Logano: Joey helped his cause for advancing in the Chase with a good third place finish. He won Talladega last year so he might be able to win his way in.
  • AJ Allmendinger: AJ was in the top-ten despite not being in the Chase. He has really improved that single car team since joining it.
  • Alex Bowman: Alex was the top finishing non-Chase driver for another week during this year’s Chase. He has done about as good as Jeff Gordon filling in in that car.
  • Kasey Kahne: Kasey got another finish that was so good he might have advanced if he was in the Chase in this round. He has improved but a little too late for the Championship.

JAW’s ‘HEARTRACERS / HEARTBREAKERS’
– 2016 Bank of America 500 edition

Date: 10-9-16

Racetrack: Charlotte Motor Speedway

Pole Sitter: Kevin Harvick

HEARTRACERS:

  • Jimmie Johnson: Jimmie won the race. He led the most laps. He got a rare Hendrick win this season. It came at the perfect time for him to advance to the round of eight. It was the first time since the Chase rounds were formed that he advanced past the round of 12.
  • Matt Kenseth: Matt was second in the race and Jimmie Johnson’s last threat. He got close to locking himself into the next round. He will be quick going forward.
  • Ryan Newman: Ryan had one of his best runs this year. Being in the top-five in good considering he is not in the Chase and winless.
  • Brad Keselowski: Brad has been the most consistent car all year with the old point’s standings. He is a threat for the Championship with every race.
  • Danica Patrick: Danica had a good run this week in 11th place. She is trying to build momentum towards next season.
  • Michael McDowell: Michael got a top-fifteen finish in his weak- funded team. He is still feeling good after his Xfinity win this season.

– 2016 Citizen Soldier 400 edition

Date: 10-2-16

Racetrack: Dover International Speedway

Pole Sitter: Brad Keselowski

HEARTRACERS:

  • Martin Truex Jr.: Martin won the race. He beat out Kyle Busch for the win. His single car team advanced in the Chase. They now have four wins this year.
  • Kyle Busch: Kyle just missed out on the win again by one spot. He is a Chase favorite. He could go far again in this Chase.
  • Chase Elliott: Chase advanced in the Chase by finishing third. With Chris Buescher being eliminated he should be the highest finishing rookie of the year on points. He is still winless but he is expected to win one soon.
  • Brad Keselowski: Brad started on pole and got a top-five finish. He advanced in the Chase. He is the leading Penske driver in the Chase.
  • Jeff Gordon: Jeff got what could be his last top-ten of his career with only a start or two left this year. He was the top finishing non-Chase driver.
  • Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Ricky got a good run this week as a non-Chase driver. It was one of his better finishes as well.

JAW’s ‘HEARTRACERS / HEARTBREAKERS’
– 2016 Bad Boy Off Road 300 edition

Date: 9-25-16

Racetrack: New Hampshire Motor Speedway

Pole Sitter: Carl Edwards

HEARTRACERS:

  • Kevin Harvick: Kevin got a good last restart and won the race. He moves on in the Chase while he gets all the glory. He is ready for another title.
  • Matt Kenseth: Matt battled Martin Truex Jr. all day and then lost out on the last restart to lose the race. He had gotten the better of Truex, and thought he was going to win until Kevin Harvick got him. He still led a bunch of laps and is in a good position to progress on points alone.
  • Martin Truex Jr.: Martin led a bunch of laps like Matt Kenseth but in the end he fell back from the battle for the win. He got a good points finish but he was hoping for a win. He will likely advance like Kenseth on points.
  • Kasey Kahne: Kasey got the best finish of a non-Chase driver. He was in ninth place. He has raced well enough through the first two Chase rounds where if he was in the Chase he would likely advance.
  • Carl Edwards: Carl had another Pole winning car but in the end he couldn’t finish the deal with a win. He will question what he needs more than this to win. He will also likely advance on points to Round 2 of the Chase.
  • Ryan Blaney: Ryan got another good finish just outside the top-ten. He has ran well for the Wood Brothers. He is hoping that he can win before the end of the year to answer his rookie rivals.

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 1:59 PM, and stopped at the waving of the checkered flag at 5:11 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.
