Heading into Homestead-Miami
Coming into this race, NASCAR’s Big 3 qualified together with Joey Logano for the right to be crowned the 2018 winner. This race has more than only a championship happening. The following storylines are really worth watching out for:
End of an Era for Knaus and JJ
Sunday’s race marks the end of an era as Jimmie Johnson and crew chief Chad Knaus will part ways after 17 decades. During that span, this duo won over 80 races and 7 championships. They’ve won at every significant track and left their mark on the sport that will never be matched again. With that said, Knaus will proceed over to be the crew chief for William Byron and Johnson will partner with Kevin Meendering in 2019. Can Jimmie Johnson earn his first win of 2018 and split his winless streak?
Truex Going later Logano
If Martin Truex Jr. and Joey Logano aren’t in contention for the championship late in the race on Sunday, watch out for retaliation from Truex. In Martinsville, a couple weeks ago, Logano bumped Truex out of how to win the racewhile Martin finished 3rd. It was a move that drew the ire of the #78 team. Truex has stated that he will get retaliation if the chance presents itself.
Paying Tribute to “The Silver Fox”
Before this week, former 3-time champion David”The Silver Fox” Pearson passed away at the age of 82. Pearson was a pioneer of the game and the most important rival to Richard Petty throughout the 1960′s and 1970′s. It’s believed that this competition is exactly what helped to bring NASCAR to the mainstream. A number of the current drivers are paying their respects in memory of Pearson. On Sunday, NASCAR will also pay some kind of tribute.
