Weekly Practice Breakdowns

2015 Homestead Ford EcoBoost 400 Practice Breakdown

This tire definitely falls off, I just hope we don’t have failures like we did the last time we ran it at Texas. Doesn’t appear that there’s a clear-cut dominant car this week on first look. Happy Hour was around 80 degrees and overcast. Sunday should be very similar weather wise. I’d venture to guess […]

2015 Phoenix Quicken Loans 500 Practice Breakdown

This tire doesn’t fall off very much so it’s really easy to get lost in practice as to who’s on what tire. This also means we’ll see plenty of pit calls and I expect clean air to reign supreme. I’d much rather have a tire that falls off a ton, but it is what it […]

2015 Goody’s Headache Relief Shot 500 Practice Breakdown

Practice at Martinsville can be more misleading than any other track in my opinion. A typical long, race run consists of nearly 100 laps or more. So cutting one fast lap isn’t really indicative of who’s going to be fast. Hell, 15 laps isn’t even a quarter of a fuel run. So, I’d rely on […]

2015 Kansas Hollywood Casino 400 Practice Breakdown

The race on Sunday will see temps in the mid to upper 60s. The warmest it got in practice was Happy Hour when it was 62 degrees. This tire is extremely hard and doesn’t fall off a whole lot. So we’re going to see a ton of pit strategy and probably a pretty wild race. […]

2015 Charlotte Bank of America 500 Practice Breakdown

Friday’s first practice can probably be ignored, as temps were in the upper 70s, the race will see conditions in the low 60s or 50s. Happy Hour was a little cooler, but was only in the lower 70s. Final practice is definitely the practice to pay attention to as it was when the sun was […]

2015 Dover AAA 400 Practice Breakdown

Well, we didn’t get much practice in this week and the practice we did get in was mainly on a green track. Matt Kenseth and Denny Hamlin are smiling as they are already in the next round of the Chase. Again, a green track is when a track has zero or very little rubber down […]

2015 Dover AAA 400 Fantasy NASCAR Preview

There’s no other track quite like Dover, so we’re going to just look at the race from this year to help us rank the drivers plus momentum. The Monster Mile has been called Bristol on steroids and I’m sure there’s some correlation between the two. However, we’re better off just going off of the previous […]

2015 New Hampshire Sylvania 300 Practice Breakdown

First practice can be ignored as temperatures were in the 50s. The race will take place in temperatures in the upper 60s and maybe even reach the 70s. This track changes a ton and is very temperature sensitive. Track position is huge here and this tire doesn’t fall off a ton. So, expect to see […]

2015 Chicago MyAFibRisk.com 400 Practice Breakdown

Practice this weekend was real similar in to race conditions in regards to temperature. This tire doesn’t fall off a whole lot, but I’ve seen worse. There’s a good chance we’ll see tire/pit strategies and some fuel-mileage strategy. Qualifying was rained out, so the field is set by Friday’s practice session. Brad Keselowski has won […]

2015 Richmond Federated Auto Parts 400 Practice Breakdown

Richmond is a race track that can see green-flag runs over 100 laps. So ten-lap averages aren’t worth a whole lot this week in my opinion. For example, Justin Allgaier had the fastest ten-lap average all day. I’m sure he has a good car, but he’s not winning this race. Then of course there the […]
