23 days ago   |   By NASCAR notes

ARIC ALMIROLA Win and You're In KANNAPOLIS, North Carolina - Aric Almirola, driver of the No. 10 Smithfield Ford Mustang for Stewart-Haas Racing , has one last shot to advance the Round of 8 of the NASCAR Cup Series playoffs, and he finds himself in a must-win situation as he competes in Sunday's Bank of America Roval 400 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. In the past, Almirola has had to race his way into the next round of the playoffs based on points, which he did at the Roval 400 in 2018. This year, sitting 48 points below the cutoff line, he's forced to throw a “Hail Mary” as his only chance...

KYLE BUSCH Win and You're Win
HUNTERSVILLE, North Carolina - While the NASCAR Cup Series playoff grid shows that Kyle Busch is 21 points below the top-eight cutline with one race remaining in the Round of 12, there are many scenarios in which the defending series champion can advance to the Round of 8 following Sunday's Bank of America Roval 400 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Busch, driver of the No. 18 M&M'S Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing , knows that the only sure way to advance is to win Sunday's race on the 2.28-mile, 17-turn “roval” will be to win the race. However, there are other paths...

CLINT BOWYER Advancing in Playoffs Boils Down to Charlotte Roval... Again! KANNAPOLIS, North Carolina - Clint Bowyer might be in 11th place and 38 points below the eighth-place cutoff to advance to the Round 8 in NASCAR's 2020 playoffs, but the No. 14 Ford Mustang driver has a not-so-secret weapon left in his arsenal that has worked for him in the past, and he hopes to employ it again Sunday. Bowyer's weapon is the “roval” road course at Charlotte Motor Speedway, where he has third- and fourth-place finishes, plus a bunch of bonus points in the first two races run on the 2.28-mile, 17-turn...

Chase Elliott is 7/2 favorite to win 2020 Bank of America ROVAL 400

23 days ago   |   By NASCAR notes

Driver Chase Elliott on his success at road courses:
“I don't know why the road courses have been good to us thus far. I came from short-track racing. I did a little bit of road-course racing in go karts, but I don't know how much that translates. Most of my years coming along were short tracks around the country, asphalt racing - very different from road-course racing. I do think a lot of the credit should go to Jeff. Jeff was a fantastic road racer, as we all know. I really think he and Alan had a very good understanding of what was important at road races and what they really wanted in...
