Start your engines people; we are official at the starting lap of this NASCAR super-blog!

As I said in our bio, this is a blog for passionate NASCAR fans looking for recent updates on driver news, racing events and everything that makes our world rumble down the track!

To kick things off I would like to take a few moments to talk about the drivers to watch out for at the moment regarding standings in the Sprint Cup Chase for the Cup series!

The standings as of 9/12/16 are as follows (we will only list the first 20 standings, for the complete list check out http://www.nascar.com/en_us/sprint-cup-series/standings.html):

  1. Kyle Busch
  2. Brad Keselowski
  3. Denny Hamlin
  4. Kevin Harvick
  5. Carl Edwards
  6. Martin Truex Jr.
  7. Matt Kenseth
  8. Jimmie Johnson
  9. Joey Logano
  10. Kyle Larson
  11. Tony Stewart
  12. Kurt Busch
  13. Chris Buescher
  14. Chase Elliot
  15. Austin Dillon
  16. Jamie McMurray
  17. Ryan Newman
  18. Kasey Kahne
  19. Trevor Bayne
  20. AJ Allmendinger

Kyle Busch continues to dominate the track, followed closely by Brad Keselowski and Denny Hamlin who aren’t looking to give up an inch of their position from the aggressive drivers behind them!

Kevin Harvick is a threat to the top three, and you can be sure that Harvick is in it to win it after finishing in 5th place at Richmond! Harvick’s guts in the turns have made him a threat to those in front of him and a risk to pass for those behind.

Matt Kenseth has also had a great ’16 season, with his standings improving throughout the year.

The Sprint Cup: Chase for the Cup is going to be a hot one for sure, with the first race set for 9/18 in the windy city of Chicago; I can’t wait!
