While Martin Truex, Jr is a threat to win at any track this year, he didn’t look like the most probable winner this weekend. Even though he started third, Kyle Busch looked like he was going to run away with the race in the early stages, but then contact between Busch and Brad Keselowski about halfway through sent them both spinning and opened the door for anyone else.
More people than ever before have discovered the benefits of leasing a vehicle rather than buying one outright. In fact, a report from USA Today estimates that as much as a third of vehicle acquisitions are leases. People often lease to stay within a budget, but there are several factors to consider to determine if leasing is ideal for your particular situation.
Kyle Busch grabbed the pole, the first stage and then his first win at the Cup return to Pocono. He led a race high 74 laps and beat Harvick to the line by over 6 seconds. That is a fast car. But NASCAR found a loose lug nut so look for a fine for the crew chief. The 6 and 17 were also missing lug nuts, so fines all around!
I started late. I didn’t drive in my first professional auto race until age 21. Before that, I was addicted to go kart racing. No, not the World Karting Association or the National Karting Alliance. I’d never heard of them.
My karting career began by paying five dollars for ten minutes of track time in a 5 horsepower, 25 mile per hour fun kart at tiny, tourist-driven venues during our family vacations. We stopped at go kart tracks from Virginia to Utah. Any track, any time. It wasn’t real racing, but it was the only racing I had.
The tracks were minuscule. The karts were poky rent-a-wrecks. Sometimes they didn’t even require a helmet. My first races were on tracks like the Salty Dog Grand Prix against other vacationing kids, most of whom never realized they were locked in bitter competition with a teenager and his visions of grandeur.
An exhausted and unexpected Kasey Kahne won the 2017 Brickyard 400 after enduring the 6-hour event. With heat and humidity once again settling over the historic track, a small crowd even by NASCAR standards endured a nearly 2 hour rain delay and then watched the race fall apart with 50 laps to go.
It looked like Kyle Busch was going to win his third Brickyard 400 after winning the first two stages relatively easily. Busch and Martin Truex, Jr looked to have the fastest cars and left the audience wondering if Kyle could hang on or if Truex had something left in reserve when go time came.
