The West Coast Swing concludes on the big and fast two mile Auto Club Speedway in sunny California for 400 miles of high speed thrills.  Chip Ganassi Racing's Kyle Larson, one of the younger drivers in the field and has been called the next Jeff Gordon captured the pole.

My pick: Kurt Busch

Also, here's the Radioactive from Phoenix.

Kyle Larson started out front and he ended up finishing there too as he took the checkers for the 42 team.

The action slows down as NASCAR rolls in to the Commonwealth of Virginia for 500 laps at the tiny Martinsville Speedway.  This is one of the oldest tracks on the circuit, and is a fan favorite, as the tight confines result in a lot of beating and banging, and the classic bump and run maneuver to push somebody out of the way. 

My pick: Denny Hamlin

As qualifying got rained out, Kyle Larson is the pole sitter as he leads the point standings.

In the final laps, it came down to Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch, and Brad ended up crossing the line first to win the race.

Breaking news: Dale Earnhardt Jr is retiring after this season

http://www.nascar.com/en_us/news-media/articles/2017/4/25/dale-earnhardt-jr-retire-following-2017-season.html

Whoa.  I will miss him.  But with the concussion issues he's had recently, at least he will be leaving with good health. 

Now the bigger question: Who will drive the 88 next year?

I don't blame him. He will be missed after he retires.

This is no doubt the news that I certainly did not want to hear! That I dreaded this moment! Yet considering that his health is more important I think it was a logical decision for Dale Jr to retire following the 2017 season. Though no doubt he will be missed after 2017. Being a fan of Jr for many years this to me is very heartbreaking news! But this was his decision and there is no way I can make him change his mind. Like I said again his health is much more important. Yet I want him to win more races before he does indeed retire. And if some miracle happens probably seeing him win that elusive Cup title. Lol.

Danica Patrick is also considering retiring I think.

I could see that happening if Stewart-Haas has issues finding sponsorship for her car, especially since the Nature's Bakery deal flopped.

It doesn't help that her results on the track have been lackluster.

Austin Dillon brings the number 3 car to victory lane after Jimmie Johnson runs out of fuel. First win for the number 3 in years upon being reinstated.
