Phoenix Weekend

Hey folks! Here's my take on the Phoenix weekend.

Saturday was the Xfinity race. Polesitter Joey Logano with 176 laps led, followed by Matt Kenseth with 14 laps led, Kevin Harvick, Austin Dillon with 4 laps led and Erik Jones.  Rounding out the top 10 were Ty Dillon, Chase Elliott, Brendan Gaughan, Regan Smith and Brian Scott. Landon Cassill crashed out on lap 91 and was the only one to wreck out.

 Sunday was the Cup race. Polesitter Kevin Harvick won with 224 laps led, followed by Jamie McMurray with 1 lap led, Ryan Newman, Kasey Kahne and Kurt Busch. Rounding out the top-10 were Brad Keselowski with 52 laps led, Martin Truex, Jr, Joey Logano with 35 laps led, Jeff Gordon and Kyle Larson. Tony Stewart was 39th after a lap 282 crash. Dale Earnhardt, Jr., was 43rd after a crash that ended his race on lap 179. Ricky Stenhouse, Jr., was 12th, so he was the best Roush driver in the race. Roush has been struggling still this year because they have been using 2014 cars, but it's floating around they will use 2015 cars starting at Texas. It's hard for someone like me to see Roush's struggles because I'm a huge Trevor fan. Before I woke up on race day, I had dream he and Joey, another favorite of mine both had a good race at some track. I'm tired of Trevor having an ill-handling car, like he did at Phoenix. His car was loose, which means the car has less grip than it should.

Come back next week for my Fontana recap.
