Last time out on Sunday, Chase Keselowski won the Coca-Cola 600 victory, racing his way from the back and holding off Jimmie Johnson for the win.
“I feel like I have thrown this race away a handful of times, and I thought we were going to lose it today,” Keselowski said post-race. “I have lost it the way Chase lost it, and it really stinks. And today we finally won it that way.”
He admitted that it was strange to win it at a mostly empty racetrack.
“I was kind of bummed. I wanted to win the 600 my whole life and wanted to win in front of everybody,” he said. “But that’s not always how it works. I know there are fans that wish they could be in the stands.”
Some big news this week was that key members of Denny Hamlin’s crew were suspended for four races because a piece of tungsten fell off his car on the pace lap before the Coca-Cola 600. According to The Associated Press, the NASCAR rule book states if it is separated at any point it is an automatic four-race suspension for the crew chief, car chief and engineer. It’s a big loss for a Hamlin, consistently a top contender. He had already won the Daytona 500 this year and won on May 20 at Darlington.
Alex Bowman, Chase Elliott and Martin Truex Jr. are the favorites to win at +550 (odds via Bovada). Kyle Busch (+700), Joey Logano (+900), Kevin Harvick (+1,000) and Jimmie Johnson (+1,100) follow close behind.
