FirstAndMonday‘s Federated Auto Parts 400 Preview
by Holden Asworth
Well boys, this is it. The last race of the regular season, the last chance to make it into the Playoffs. A handful of drivers have nothing to worry about. A separate group of drivers are hanging on a prayer. What better way to fight it out than under the lights? This week, we’ll take a look at some of the drivers who aren’t locked in to the playoffs yet.
Logano – he had a win here in the spring, but it was rule encumbered after they found out he was a cheating bastard. He NEEDS a win to make it in. No win, no championship shot.
Kenseth – If the regular season ended right now, he’d be in on points (no wins). A win would definitely help calm the waters in the #20 camp. Missing the playoffs in his final year at Joe Gibbs Racing would tie the bow on one dud of a season.
Elliott – Basically the same situation as Kenseth, without being geriatric (he’s like 2/3s the age). He had quite the hype going into his rookie season, and then…..nothing happened. Making the playoffs could provide a spark this team would need.
