By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Correspondent The highlight of the day for Chase Elliott was a third-place qualifying effort as he flew under the radar at Richmond Raceway. Much like Las Vegas one week ago, the Federated Auto Parts 400 was nearly identical to the Spring race at Richmond. With just three natural cautions, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoff Grid drivers had little chance move up the running order. Elliott’s No. 9 NAPA Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 started with track position, but ultimately couldn’t keep it. At the end ofRead More

After Annett hovered just inside the top-10 in stage one of the Go Bowling 250 at Richmond Raceway, Mack opted to bring the No. 1 Pilot / Flying J Chevrolet Camaro SS to pit road under caution on lap 61. As one of three that pitted, the JR Motorsports driver came to life in the final nine laps of the stage. Annett restarted outsideRead More
By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Correspondent The highlight of the day for Ryan Newman was a pit strategy call as he flew under the radar at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The South Point 400 was nearly identical to the Spring race at Las Vegas. With just two natural cautions, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoff Grid drivers had little chance move up the running order.

The damage appeared minor and for a moment, it looked as if Byron’s tire would clear the left rear fender itself. On lap 182, the left rear tire blew, and he spun in turns three and four. After the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup SeriesRead More
