Talladega once again delivered a phenomenal race that has me itching for another Super Speedway race.
I was happy to see Ryan Blaney win this past weekend because I'll always root for the most recent Coca-Cola 600 winner since Charlotte is my home track. I also like seeing a Ford in Victory Lane since I am currently a Ford guy and having a Penske driver that isn't Austin Cindric in the playoffs is all-around good for NASCAR.
Stenhouse finished in 22nd, but he drove a lot better than what the final result shows. Stenhouse did have his second-worst start of the season, starting this race in 35th. Somehow, he found himself leading the pack and leading one of the two or three race lines on the track at any given time. Stenhouse is always a fun driver to keep up with at Super Speedways because, though he may start in nearly dead-last, he will put himself in a position to win the race like we saw at the Daytona 500.
Kyle Busch, Ross Chastain, Bubba Wallace, and Tyler Reddick are the four drivers below the Playoff Cut Line heading to the Charlotte Roval. Brad Keselowski is only +2 above the cut line, so expect the Roval to be competitive. Of the drivers below the cutoff line, Tyler Reddick has the best odds of winning the race at +700, the third-best odds of winning the race behind Chase Elliott (+600) and William Byron (+650).
Who are the four drivers you think will be cut off after this weekend?
