NASCAR stepped up Friday with immediate rule changes to cut speeds for the race after Jamie McMurray’s scary tumbling crash in Friday’s practice caused concern.
Sunday’s race is 2 p.m. on FOX. Live streaming is available on FOX Sports Go. Live scoring and updates are available at NASCAR’s Race Center.
McMurray was not injured in the tumbling crash, caused by a blown tire. But there was no practice sessions Saturday, only single car qualifying, to test the new rule change in traffic.
Kevin Harvick took the pole as the last car out to set the starting lineup.
So it will be interesting to see how the changes not only affect speed, but the most dominant driver on the track the last three weeks, Kyle Busch. He will start 19th on the grid.
Dominating is the only way to say it. So far this season Busch not only has the three straight victories in the nine races to date. He has has three second-place finishes and a third. He has only finished one NASCAR race this season outside of the Top 10.
Busch holds a 56 point lead over Joey Logano, who has yet to win a race, but matches Busch with eight Top 10 finishes in nine races overall. Busch has a 91 point lead over Harvick, who like Busch has three victories this season, but also two race finishes outside of the Top 10, including one DNF (Did Not Finish).
Harvick can actually say he has led more laps, 528-498, than Busch so it is safe to say KB does have a serious challenger. But after Harvick, the most serious threat on the track for Busch is Ryan Blaney who has led 364 laps, but has yet to win a race. No other driver is close to racing with those three lap leaders.
