NASCAR Nationwide Series- Dollar General 300 Miles of Courage
Charlotte Motor Speedway- Friday, October 14th at 7:30pm ET on ESPN2
Ok, Nationwide drivers, we need to have a little talk.
I understand that it is difficult to beat Brad Keselowski, Carl Edwards, and Kyle Busch week after week. But, there are 40 of you to three of them. I guess to be more accurate, there are 36 of you when you take away Kasey Kahne, Paul Menard, Brian Vickers, and Joey Logano.
Take back your series!
There, I said it.
There are only four races left to the Nationwide Series season, and I’d love nothing more than to see actual NNS drivers win them all. Elliot Sadler needs to make a move quickly if he wants to have a chance to take this championship away from Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. Both drivers are in top notch equipment, more than capable of winning week after week. The key to Stenhouse leading this championship is his two wins to ESad’s none.
While I’d love for a NNS driver to take this race, I feel like we will be seeing another round of the Keselowski burnout. Charlotte is a track that plays right into Keselowski’s strengths: speed and, you guessed it, fuel mileage.
I really do hope that an NNS driver can step up and prove me wrong this weekend. Please?
