Charlotte Weekned

Hey folks! Here's my take on the Charlotte Weekend. The Trucks were off this time.

Friday night was the Xfinity race. Austin Dillon, the pole-sitter won with 61 laps led, followed by Erik Jones, Brad Keselowski, rookie Daniel Suarez with 1 lap led and Regan Smith.  Rounding out the top-10 were Ty Dillon, Chris Buescher, rookie Darrell Wallace, Jr.,  Chase Elliott and Elliott Sadler. Kasey Kahne led 34 laps and was 12th. Ryan Sieg was 14th with 2 laps led. Kyle Busch led 102 laps before an accident on lap 153 relegated him to 31st. No one else wrecked out.

Saturday night was the Cup race's scheduled time, but rain delayed it to Sunday. Joey Logano won with 227 laps led, followed by Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex, Jr., Denny Hamlin and Kurt Busch. Rounding out the top-10 were Carl Edwards with 1 lap led, Austin Dillon with 1 lap led, Jeff Gordon with 1 lap led, Brad Keselowski and Aric Almirola. Clint Bowyer was 11th after leading 1 lap. Sam Hornish, Jr. was 17th with 22 laps led. Kyle Busch was 20th with 4 laps led. Kyle Larson led 3 laps and was 21st. Cole Whitt was 38th due to an accident on lap 262. Jimmie Johnson led 2 laps, but was 39th due to a blown engine on lap 257.  Matt Kenseth led 72  laps before an accident on lap 263 relegated him to 42nd. Kasey Kahne was 43rd due to an accident on lap 58.

Come back for 'Dega.
