It seems that being sidelined during the remainder of the 2016 season might've taken its toll on Dale, Jr. The 2017 season is still young & I hope he'll get better.

I sure hope so J.

Radioactive, Atlanta edition.

This one particularly sucks for me, as Kevin Harvick had the best car (he led 292/325 laps) but got caught speeding on pit road late in the race and the drive through penalty lost him the race.

Some  schedule news: Starting in 2018, New Hampshire Motor Speedway will be losing its fall race, giving it up to Las Vegas Motor Speedway instead. 

I've got mixed feelings as I feel that the racing at New Hampshire was very bland, but replacing it with Las Vegas means another 1.5 mile track, and the series has too many of those on the schedule already.  A fall race at a road course would be a welcome addition for a little extra variety.

The West Coast Swing begins in Las Vegas for 400 miles of high rolling action.  Fresh off winning at Atlanta, Brad Keselowski stayed hot and won the pole. 

Airing info: Sunday March 12 @ 3:30 Eastern, 12 Pacific on Fox.

Martin Truex Jr threw down the hammer and dominated the whole race to come out on top in Las Vegas, giving Toyota their first win of the season. 

It was a bad day for Kevin Harvick as he smacked the turn one wall and wound up in 39th.  Not a good day to pick him for the fantasy team either.   :oldevil:

Hopefully he'll pick it up at his personal playground next week that is Phoenix.

Kyle was angry that Joey Logano wrecked him on the final lap of the race.

Totally uncalled for on Kyle's part.  I wonder if he gets a suspension?

I wouldn't count on it.  NASCAR has not been consistent in the manner of dealing out penalties when stuff like this goes down.  If the NASCAR brass does do something, I'm guessing my guess is slapping Kyle with some probation.  Joey Logano should get off scott free as he didn't do anything wrong (as far as I'm concerned, the wreck was a racing incident and not intentional) and Logano's pit crew did the majority of the retaliation against Kyle.

Lying in the shadow of Rattlesnake Hill in the Arizona desert is the next destination for NASCAR's top series, Phoenix International Raceway.  This is a one mile oval with an odd shape, so it'll provide a trickier challenge for the drivers.  The pole sitter is Joey Logano.

My pick: Kevin Harvick.  This has been his personal playground over the years, as he leads the field with a competition crushing six wins in the last ten trips, and he has eight wins overall.  When he's here, he gets dialed in and finds ludicrous speed.  He'll have to fight his way up from 23rd, so it won't be a gimmie.

Ryan Newman gambled on his well worn tires and he hit the jackpot by winning the race.  He helped to give its Chevy its first win of the year too.
