Hey folks! Here's my take on the Phoenix race weekend. The Trucks were off this time.
Saturday was the Xfinity race. Kyle Busch won with 175 laps led, followed by pole-sitter rookie Erik Jones with 5 laps led, Daniel Suarez, Justin Allgaier and Chase Elliott. Rounding out the top-10 were Ty Dillon with 11 laps led, Austin Dillon, Elliott Sadler, Brad Keselowski with 9 laps led and rookie Brennan Poole. No one crashed out.
Sunday was the Cup race. Kevin Harvick won with 139 laps led, followed by Carl Edwards with 65 laps led, Denny Hamlin, Kyle Busch with 75 laps led and Dale Earnhardt, Jr. with 34 laps led. Rounding out the top-10 were Kurt Busch, Matt Kenseth, rookie Chase Elliott, Austin Dillon and rookie Ryan Blaney. Ricky Stenhouse, Jr was 37th due to an accident on lap 161. Paul Menard was 38th due to crashing out on lap 104. Ryan Newman was 39th after wrecking out on lap 51.
