NASCAR Championship Weekend at Homestead

Post by flyingturns89 on Wed Nov 18, 2015 1:57 am

Just one more race.

After 796 starts, over 200,000 laps completed, 93 wins, four championships, and 23 full time seasons, it all comes down to just one more race.

The last 23 years have seen Jeff Gordon go from being an up-and-coming driver to a household name. On Sunday, in his final start, he will go for his fifth NASCAR Sprint Cup championship. But it won't be easy, as there are three others who want to hoist the trophy just as much as he does. For Kevin Harvick, it's the chance to win his second consecutive championship for Stewart-Haas Racing. If he pulls it off, it would be Stewart-Haas's third title in the last five years. For Kyle Busch, it would mean redemption. After breaking his leg and foot in a crash at Daytona, Busch missed the first 11 races of the season. When he returned, he won four times, securing himself a Chase berth. For Martin Truex Jr. though, it would mean showing just what his little team can do. While the other three drivers drive for four car teams, Truex drives for Furniture Row Racing, a single car team fielded out of Denver, CO. If the Furniture Row team can pull off the championship victory, it could be the biggest upset in NASCAR history.

The legend going for one more title, the defending champ trying to remain at the top, the injured driver who returned better than ever, or the underdog story of the century. Four drivers will enter Homestead with a chance to win it all, but only one will leave with the title of 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion.

The lower tier series may not get as much attention as the Cup Series championship fight, but both the Xfinity Series and the Truck Series are set up for an exciting championship fight. In the Xfinity Series, Chris Buescher looks to secure the title, but he faces a challenge from defending champion Chase Elliott, as well as Ty Dillon and Regan Smith. All Buescher most do to clinch the title is finish 13th or better, which he has done in all but five races this season. The Truck Series title fight is a little more solid right now. Point leader Erik Jones holds the a 19 point lead over Tyler Reddick, and a 32 point lead over two time defending champion Matt Crafton. For Jones, a 15th place finish would be enough to win the Truck Series title as a rookie.

The weather is a concern for this weekend, as rain appears to be a possibility for all three days.

For the sake of underdog, I really want Truex to win. On the other habd though, I really want the legend to go out on top.

The other two can go away for all I care.

Treux because underdog. I'm conflicted on if we get through this race without controversy...It's been the theme of this chase but yet i feel the sun is setting in terms of silliness...We'll see though.

Xfinity is all Buescher unless he has issue which would then in turn blow the entire points battle wide-open, but then again i've honestly felt that his closest challenger Chase Eillott has been just riding it out the whole year since guaranteed Cup ride next year.

Trucks is all Jones unless that luck early in the year comes back to bite him and even then i don't feel like Reddick can capitalize.

Also last i checked we've got rain threatening the whole weekend, so this might get messy.

I'm hoping with all my heart Jeff Gordon wins this damn thing. My favorite driver since 2000, he's been my favorite before I started school, now I wanna be able to have him winning a Championship on his final race in my final year of high school.

But.....if Gordon has no chance at the end, then I hope Kyle Busch does it. I don't like Harvick, Truex I don't like/care for, but I'd rather have him than Harvick.

On a more emotional note, John Hunter Nemechek makes his first start at Homestead. His uncle, John Nemechek, was killed in a crash there in 1997. Joe finished 8th last year, which was the first time a Nemechek started a truck race at Homestead since the crash.

Matt Crafton earned the pole position for tonight's Ford EcoBoost 200, his fourth of 2015. John Hunter Nemechek will start on the outside of the front row. The rest of the top 5 (in order) consists of Ben Kennedy, Tyler Reddick, and Erik Jones.

With a solid 6th-place finish in the race Ford EcoBoost 200, Erik Jones becomes the 2015 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion! (A driver who is only one year older than me, graduated from a high school where I've competed for track meets, and used to race on a short track where I visit every summer for Saturday night racing; makes it even cooler for me.) I was very happy to watch him earn the title!

The race itself was a fight between Matt Crafton and John Hunter Nemechek, with Daniel Suárez leading some laps before self-spinning from the lead. Nemechek had the fastest truck towards the end, but was held up on the final restart by trucks that did not pit under caution as he had. Crafton found his way around the slower traffic quickly, and was too far ahead for Nemechek to be caught by the time that the #8 made it back into 2nd-place. Of note, Ben Kennedy and Spencer Gallagher also had top 5 runs (though Gallagher would fall victim to the same traffic that trapped Nemechek and finish in 11th). It was also nice for me to see David Levine and Kyle Weatherman debut with Lira Motorsports in what was also the first Truck Series outing for that team.

The excitement that this series produces with continues to impress me; this year was a lot of fun to watch! Looking forward to seeing how Jones will do in the #20 Xfinity Series car, and I can't wait for the Trucks to return to Daytona in February!

I was in a really bad mood tonight so maybe that's why i didn't enjoy the race a whole lot.

Glad to see Jones get it as he's been the big name in the upcoming drivers list and a championship adds a lot of legitimacy to that.

Really nice to see Chris Buescher win the driver's championship. Nobody could chase him down in the points. And good job Klye Larson on the race win.

Hoping for the best in tomorrow's Cup finale.

You're putting Gordon winning in the best race in the history of motorsports in jeopardy and Harvick is gonna win!

Kyle Larson's late race charge was very, very impressive. And Chris Buescher did a great job this year and it a deserving champion. He gives Roush a reason to hope for the future.

Looking through the results from practice and qualifying for this weekend's race, and I gotta say, it doesn't look like any one of the final four title contenders has an edge over one another. Should be interesting.

Like I said after Phoenix, pulling for either the #24 or the #78. Very Happy

Championship thoughts

Gordon or Truex wins: Both very satisfying outcomes
Busch wins: Ok with it, he has probably driven the best this year, but, his absence the first half of the season means it won't feel quite right.
Harvick wins: I'd lose my shit, and I think he might actually be found dead at the hands of some crazy redneck.


I don't think Truex will win, he doesn't have teammates to take out the other 3 for him, whereas the others all drive for 4 car teams. Not to mention the highly likely chances of the "neutral" teams helping Gordon (if someone does, there's no way NASCAR penalizes them.)

Truex needs to get up there, I know it's early but..the 3 other chasers, Gordon, Harvick, and Busch are the top 3 on track, Martin really needs to step his game up to beat three dominate cars.

Manipulation of the car body. Jackman slammed against quarter panel just in front of right rear. If it was dented it would be an aero advantage.

As much as the 18 missed 11 races.

He's been way better than Gordon (who got gifted a win) and Truex (we all like, but hasn't been good since the summer months).

Harvick.... Nope, i'll take Kyle

20 to go, and the guy who raced 2/3 of the season is the top championship guy so far.

Uh... okay.

I don't know how the hell to react. That was so damn lacklustre. Just defines this season.

Good championship KyBusch... I think?!?

Don't blame Kyle, he just ran his race.

Blame the chase and Brian France for this.

Well, at least it wasn't Harvick. Laughing

But, yeah, Kyle winning the title shows how much of a joke this format is. Too bad the media won't think so.

Most of us don't.  The only way Kyle winning is pallateable is because it shows how much of a joke the Chase is.

Also, thinking about it, other than the early seasons of NASCAR, this has to be the fewest races ran by a championship winner.

I'm Done with NASCAR, Busch didn't even run 1/3 of the season but he wins the championship?! And Fans Complain about Johnson's Domination age..Anyways, I would have loved to see Martin win the Champ, too bad the guy who has missed the most races out of the entire chase field has won it. Seriously...Fck Kyle.. Mad

Sixth in Jeff Gordon’s final Sprint Cup race. His post-race interview gave me chills. Thank you for everything, Jeff.

GW GC #18. I can't be mad that Kyle Busch won the title, even though I don't think he deserves it for only running two-thirds of the season. Just disappointed more than anything, especially because now we have to retire the "Cup Championships: 0" meme. :c

Tanner, have I ever told you lately that I love you? <3

This was the second-most palatable option behind Gordon winning. I'm surprisingly OK with this.

Unpopular Opinion: I think people take things too seriously when it comes to NASCAR and it's Chase.

NASCAR was allowed to create this monster because they have ZERO competition, CART/IRL split and all the ratings went to NASCAR.

NASCAR had to much time on their hands and went after the NFL (which is stupid)

IF Indycar could really get hot in the next coming years and actually have better ratings and racing than NASCAR, I'm sure that NASCAR would change their temperance.

Well, IndyCar's already got one of those in the bag: the better racing part. IndyCar's ratings are also starting to go up, while NASCAR's have been going down this year. Hmmm... Makes me wonder if some NASCAR fans are jumping ship to IndyCar.

Better than Harvick, still bleh, mostly because the season was terrible anyway, and i only watched 6 races to get a grip of how bad it was.

Kyle Busch was not in the top half of my picks for the title. But at least it was him over some jerk that wrecked half the field at Talladega with an essentially dead race car. I still believe the chase needs to go away.

As for the fans saying they will stop following Nascar racing. See you when Daytona is around the corner.

For me, it'll still only be the 600.

Wasn't moved by Kyle winning the championship, and yes, it shows how NASCAR is so damn pathetic when it comes to the Chase, but I'm kinda okay with this, for once. At least Harvick was dethroned. A pitiful season, to be honest. On to 2016.

Gonna miss Jeff Gordon so much. Gonna be weird as hell to not see him on the grid next year.

Congrats to Martin Truex Jr. and Furniture Row on an awesome year.
