JAW’s ‘HEARTRACERS / HEARTBREAKERS’
– 2016 Ford EcoBoost 400 edition
Racetrack: Homestead-Miami Speedway
Pole Sitter: Kevin Harvick
- Jimmie Johnson: Jimmie won his seventh championship tying Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt for first place. He proved how good a driver he really is by winning the race.
- Kyle Larson: Kyle almost won a race for the fifth time now only to come up empty. His one win does feel good but he feels like he could have five. Almost beating Jimmie Johnson considering the circumstances was a great showing for him.
- Brian Scott: Brian got a top-fifteen finish. I put his decent run on here after learning this could be his final NASCAR race. He was reported to have a health problem that could end his career. He did well in what could be his last race.
- Michael McDowell: Michael drove that No. 5 car up into the front part of the field again. His team is poorly-funded so it was another great effort.
- Jamie McMurray: Jamie got a top-five in a champion deciding race. He beat other Chasers and drivers in a good run. Even though he wasn’t a Chaser he was driving like one.
- AJ Allmendinger: AJ finished the year strong. He got a nice top-ten finish to lead into next year.
