JAW’s ‘HEARTRACERS / HEARTBREAKERS’
– 2015 GEICO 500 edition

Date: 5-3-15

Racetrack: Talladega Superspeedway

Pole Sitter: Jeff Gordon

HEARTRACERS:

  • Dale Earnhardt Jr.: Dale qualified in the fast 12 for the race. He led the most laps in the closing stages of the race. This allowed him to win unchallenged in the late laps.
  • Paul Menard: Paul started the race in seventh place and was in the right position in the long line of cars at the end. He was able to move up to fourth place at the end of the race.
  • Ryan Blaney: Ryan has had a bad debut for the Wood Brothers up until this race. They kept losing an engine or crashing in races. Today they contended and finished third.
  • Sam Hornish Jr.: Sam, who is a full-time driver with experience (unlike Ryan Blaney), had had a bad start to the season to this point. He got his best finish of the year so far in sixth place.
  • Josh Wise: Josh took advantage of being in a restrictor plate race with the size and budget of his team. He got a top-ten finish staying out of trouble for the entire race.
  • Alex Bowman: Alex was like Josh Wise taking advantage of the restrictor plate race to get a good finish for his team. He finished 16th.

Date: 4-26-15

Racetrack: Richmond International Raceway

Pole Sitter: Joey Logano

HEARTRACERS:

  • Kurt Busch: Kurt had a controversial non-win in Fontana earlier in the year. For this race, he led most of the laps and won convincingly.

  • Jamie McMurray: Jamie has been close to winning all year. He got another top-five finish trying to win for Chip Ganassi Racing.
  • Chase Elliott: Previously, Chase had his first race for Hendrick Motorsports not go well with a crash. This time, he backed up his qualifying and finished 16th.
  • Clint Bowyer: Clint has been trying to get back to the way he ran in 2012. He is taking cars that aren’t good and making them better in the race. He moved up eight positions to get a top-ten.
  • Kevin Harvick: Kevin battled Kurt Busch in the race for the win. He had been the only driver to win so far for Stewart Haas Racing this year, until Kurt dominated this race. Kevin still got another second-place finish.
  • Jimmie Johnson: Jimmie started the race in 36th place with a poor qualifying session. No matter the problem with the car he and his crew chief, Chad Knaus, that have won so many titles together pulled through for a top-five finish.

-Food City 500 In Support of Steve Byrnes edition

Date: 4-19-15

Racetrack: Bristol Motor Speedway

Pole Sitter: Matt Kenseth

HEARTRACERS:

  • Matt Kenseth: Matt won his first race in over a season. He started on pole and capitalized on the mistakes of his challengers to win and get into the Chase.
  • Jimmie Johnson: Jimmie was in the wall and several wrecks in the race. No one thought he could finish second in this race.
  • Ricky Stenhouse Jr.: Roush Racing has had trouble in several races this season but Ricky fixed that in this race. He kept his car clean and finished in the top-five.
  • Tony Stewart: Tony has not done well this season or last so far. He really was a factor at the end of this race for the first time in a long time.
  • Justin Allgaier: Justin is in a single-car team. They were running around the back for years and now Justin is taking them towards the front with his top-ten finish.
  • Danica Patrick: Danica is really turning around her career this year meeting the quota of her sponsors. She is improving her racing at every track and avoiding the wrecks. She got another top-ten finish.
