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.

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 11:47 AM, and stopped at the waving of the checkered flag at 3:59 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.
