JAW’s ‘HEARTRACERS / HEARTBREAKERS’
– 2016 AAA 400 Drive For Autism edition

Date: 5-15-16

Racetrack: Dover International Speedway

Pole Sitter: Kevin Harvick

HEARTRACERS:

  • Matt Kenseth: Matt won the race. He held off Kyle Larson and Chase Elliott. He also avoided the big crash.
  • Kyle Larson: Kyle got his best run of the year in second place. He almost won and got in the Chase.
  • Chase Elliott: Chase also almost won the race in third place. He would have been a rare Rookie winner in NASCAR history.
  • Ryan Blaney: Ryan was in the top-ten in the race. Even though he had a good run he lost ground to Chase Elliott in the Rookie race. He is in a single car team competing against Chase Elliott in Hendrick Motorsports. He has been solid so far.
  • Trevor Bayne: Trevor got a nice top-ten for Roush Racing. He has not had a lot of top-tens so far so this was good.
  • Danica Patrick: Danica had that gear problem that affected the Haas team in practice. She missed the big wreck to finish in the top-fifteen.

JAW’s ‘HEARTRACERS / HEARTBREAKERS’
– 2016 GoBowling.com 400 edition

Date: 5-8-16

Racetrack: Kansas Speedway

Pole Sitter: Martin Truex Jr.

HEARTRACERS:

  • Kyle Busch: Kyle won the race. He led the second most laps and beat Kevin Harvick for the win.
  • Kevin Harvick: Kevin was second in the race after battling Kyle Busch for the win. He tried to get by and then ran out of steam. He still leads the points.
  • AJ Allmendinger: AJ sometime gets good finishes like this in the top-ten. He continues to impress in average equipment.
  • Kurt Busch: Kurt got another top-ten finish. He hasn’t won yet but he is getting close.
  • Ryan Blaney: Ryan made a strong case that he could challenge Chase Elliott for Rookie of the year. I think he may do ok all year but he won’t get in the Chase. I think he will be to hit or miss this year. He was in the top-five in this race.
  • Chase Elliott: Chase got another top-ten as a Cup Series rookie. He is a strong favorite to win Rookie of the Year honors in the same car as Jeff Gordon. So far, he is doing better than Jeff in his rookie season.

JAW’s ‘HEARTRACERS / HEARTBREAKERS’
– 2016 GEICO 500 edition

Date: 5-1-16

Racetrack: Talladega Superspeedway

Pole Sitter: Chase Elliott

HEARTRACERS:

  • Brad Keselowski: Brad won the race leading the most laps. He was untouchable out in the lead.
  • Austin Dillon: Austin got as good as a finish as brother Ty did filling in for Tony Stewart. They both got top-ten finishes missing the wrecks.
  • Jamie McMurray: Jamie has had the better runs this year than his teammate Kyle Larson. Jamie is much more consistent and get the best finishes. He was right there in the top-ten again.
  • Chase Elliott: Chase has had the best pace in some qualifying sessions but has been unable to close races out yet. He got a top-ten finish but he wants to win.
  • Michael Waltrip: Michael did a classic job of getting a bottom tier car a top-twenty finish at a restrictor plate race.
  • Cole Whitt: Cole took the slowest car all year that is lapped over ten times a race to a top twenty finish.

JAW’s ‘HEARTRACERS / HEARTBREAKERS’
– 2016 Toyota Owners 400 edition

Date: 4-24-16

Racetrack: Richmond International Raceway

Pole Sitter: Kevin Harvick

HEARTRACERS:

  • Carl Edwards: Carl won the race with a last lap bump ’n run on Kyle Busch. He is Kyle’s teammate but it still felt good to do it without crashing Kyle.
  • Jimmie Johnson: Jimmie was in third place. That didn’t surprise anyone out of ‘six time’. He is right there in the points for another Chase appearance.
  • Kasey Kane: Kasey has had good finishes, and cars lately, staying consistent. He hasn’t won yet, but with all of these top-five finishes it could be coming soon.
  • Kurt Busch: Kurt led more laps towards his season total. He got another top-ten but he can’t close out races.
  • Kyle Busch: Kyle was second in the race which is good for the points, but he was passed on the last lap. Second gave him mixed feelings.
  • Kevin Harvick: Kevin led a bunch of laps in the race too. He wasn’t able to close out the deal like his teammate Kurt Busch.

JAW’s ‘HEARTRACERS / HEARTBREAKERS’
– 2016 Food City 500 edition

Date: 4-17-16

Racetrack: Bristol Motor Speedway

Pole Sitter: Carl Edwards

HEARTRACERS:

  • Carl Edwards: Carl led the most laps and won from pole this week. His pit crew was also the fastest throughout the race. He had the number one pit stall and won almost every race off of pit road. In the end he was flawless and his team was mistake-free.
  • Kurt Busch: Kurt led 41 laps and finished third. He is in the Chase with consistency. He will hope to win a race but even if he doesn’t it looks like he will get in the Chase on points.
  • Chase Elliott: Chase is working his way towards a win with another top-five. He is also having a better rookie season than Jeff Gordon did. The man he replaced was Rookie of the Year in 1993. He also crashed ten times that season.
  • Trevor Bayne: Trevor was in the top-five after a good run for Roush Racing. They have been up and down as a team this year. If you didn’t know years ago they were dead even with Hendrick on dominance. They have fallen far.
  • Matt DiBenedetto: Matt got a shocking sixth-place finish for Burger King Racing. He really showed off this week.
  • Landon Cassill: Landon led 40 laps and got a mid-pack finish. That is a huge step forward from where he was last season.
