HEARTRACERS:

  • Denny Hamlin: Denny lost the win but was one corner away from getting it. He led the most laps and got second place.
  • Carl Edwards: Carl led a bunch of laps and got a top-five finish. He is trying get his team to the point that they are challenging for the win each week.
  • Kevin Harvick: Kevin started 25th and got a top-ten finish. His team worked on his car and he got a good finish.
  • Ryan Newman: Ryan got a top-ten and it was at a tough track. His team tries to improve every week into being a contender.

JAW’s ‘HEARTRACERS / HEARTBREAKERS’
– 2016 FireKeepers Casino 400 edition

Date: 6-12-16

Racetrack: Michigan International Speedway

Pole Sitter: Joey Logano

HEARTRACERS:

  • Joey Logano: Joey and his fans were still looking for a points win since the Chase last year. Joey and his fans have been frustrated since the Chase went wrong for him last season. In this race he won from pole after leading the most laps. He and his fans will now have great satisfaction with this win. Joey is now in the Chase.
  • Chase Elliott: Chase got the closest to a win yet in his rookie year. He was second after leading some laps. If he wins he will be way ahead of where Jeff Gordon was in his rookie year. It is of note that Chase has yet to tear up ten cars like Jeff Gordon did in his rookie season.
  • Kyle Larson: Kyle had another great race in a row this week in third. He is turning his season around to where he could possibly make the Chase.
  • Carl Edwards: Carl has two wins towards the Chase and is locked in. He was running better earlier in the year when he got is two wins. He and Gibbs Racing have trailed off a bit on pace since then. He did get a solid finish in this race.
  • Jamie McMurray: Jamie was around the top-ten where he usually sits. He hasn’t been much worse this season but he also hasn’t spiked in races like his teammate Kyle Larson. His consistency and non-crashes have kept him in the Chase and Larson out.
  • Chris Buescher: Chris is driving for a once back-marking team for Bob Jenkins. Now they get finishes around the top-twenty quite often. They have gone far. He finished in 20th place.

JAW’s ‘HEARTRACERS / HEARTBREAKERS’
– 2016 Axalta ‘We Paint Winners’ 400 edition

Date: 6-6-16

Racetrack: Pocono Raceway

Pole Sitter: Brad Keselowski

HEARTRACERS:

  • Kurt Busch: Kurt won the race after talking advantage of a late-caution strategy. He saved fuel and got out to a big lead. Then he maintained things to secure the win.
  • Chase Elliott: Chase had a car that was competing to be the best of the day. He led the most laps. He probably would have won the race if there wasn’t another caution on lap 124.
  • Matt Kenseth: Matt lead 31 laps on route to a top-ten finish. He keeps proving he has a good car.
  • Ryan Blaney: Ryan got a top-ten in his single-car team. He did well but lost more ground in the Rookie race to Chase Elliott.
  • Dale Earnhardt Jr.: Dale finished in second place on the same strategy as Kurt Busch. He saved enough fuel to get a good finish.
  • Kyle Larson: Kyle led eight laps and got a top-fifteen finish as he continues to turn his finishes around.

Racetrack: Charlotte Motor Speedway

HEARTRACERS:

  • Martin Truex Jr.: Martin led 392 of 400 laps setting a record in his win. He was almost unbeatable in the race.

  • Jimmie Johnson: Jimmie was one of only three other leaders besides Martin Truex Jr. He got another top-five finish at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
  • Kurt Busch: Kurt got a top-ten finish as one of the best Stewart Hass cars. He has been ok, but not as strong as he was last year.
  • Chase Elliott: Chase was the top rookie again finishing inside the top-ten. He will be almost impossible to beat for Rookie of the Year.
  • Ryan Newman: Ryan finished in tenth place after starting further back in the race. He had a good run.
