If we put this week’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race at California in terms of football betting, Jimmie Johnson would be a two-touchdown favorite over the rest of the field. The manner in which he has owned the Fontana track is almost likened to the way that the NFC beat down the AFC for 13 straight years, in the 1980s and ’90s, in the Super Bowl.
KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Greg Biffle is back in the title hunt, and Jimmie Johnson has resumed his normal spot atop the NASCAR leaderboard.
KANSAS CITY, Kan. — There’s a ton of racing left to decide this season’s NASCAR champion, and a bad day at Kansas Speedway shouldn’t cripple a driver’s chances.
The third race of NASCAR’s Chase for the Championship takes us to Kansas Speedway, a race that is considered somewhat of a wild card for most teams. On just about every track on the circuit there is a similar one elsewhere where data and information gained on one translates well to the other. For each of the other races in the Chase, the crew chiefs can review all their notes from earlier this season using several different tracks. But Kansas is much different. It doesn’t run like any track and most teams have to rely on what happened last year to prepare for Sunday’s race.
