Texas Motor Speedway NASCAR Preview

Sprint Cup and Nationwide drivers will be racing under the lights at Texas Motor Speedway this weekend – Nationwide on Friday night and Sprint Cup Saturday night.  If there’s any one driver who’s got momentum heading into the weekend it’s Kevin Harvick.  He’s coming off back to back wins at California and Bristol and this week he’ll be looking to become the first driver to win three in a row since Jimmie Johnson won four in a row back in the fall of 2007.  So already he’s in good shape to make the Chase for the Sprint Cup because under the new format the top 10 drivers after 26 races get in…..plus the two drivers with the most wins from among the top 20.  He stands fifth right now and that’s pretty good considering he finished 42nd at Daytona.

Then there’s Dale, Jr. whose winless streak stands at 99 races.  He came close to winning at Bristol but had to settle for second.  He’s no stranger to winning at Texas.  It’s where he won his first Sprint Cup race 11 years ago.

Carl Edwards is a 3-time winner at Texas.

Denny Hamlin won both races at Texas last year and will be looking to be the first driver to win three in a row there.
