    Well before the playoffs I predicted Harvick to win.
    After the practice & looking at the last three races here. Truex has to be the favorite. Also has the best long run car. Hamlin is right there with him however.
    I hope Hamlin wins his 1st championship, but beating Truex at this track will take some doing.
    If Nascar throws a late race caution legit or not to make a close finish, brings Harvick right back into the fold for the Championship.
    So it should be obvious the winner is the one guy I havent mentioned at all. Kyle Busch (because what do I know) LOL

    Upset winners of the race.
    Kyle Larson is an obvious choice with as much leading as he has done here.
    Ryan Blaney is another guy with a fast long run car. (Byron has a fast long run car, but I have no faith in him)

    im so shocked that one of the 4 title contenders won the race

    so shocked

    so amazingly convenient for NASCAR ever since they adopted this format, that the winner of the homestead race was one of the final 4

    so those 4 cars are THAT much better than the 36 others? are the other drivers that worried about wrecking a title contender that they dont even try to run in top 5? NASCAR giving these 4 cars a little more HP for the last race?

    found it funny that all 4 qualified 1-2-3-4 for todays race too.......great stuff

    once again Toyota just continues to dominate almost every single race..........and its just...........ok, no one cares anymore

    if this were in the late 90s and early 2000s, teams would be going nuts at the disparity between carmakes, but since almost everyone is getting the same slice of the pie, nobody cares anymore

    Roush Fenway, just content to.......basically not contend. Remember when they were good? i don't

    Hendrick.....they have one driver in Chase Elliott that has shown consistent ability to run up front. Every once in a while Byron or Bowman will show enough speed to win, and then theres Jimmie Johnson running 15th every week

    and its been this way at Hendrick for years now

    Richard Childress........a shell of what they once were

    even at SHR, its Harvick and then............thats it

    well they didnt qualify because all the rain rained out the practices. So they go by the standings, which would make them 1-4. They might be able to dictate or manipulate a lot of things as you imply, but they cant dictate when it rains.
    I was hoping a non title contender won the race though.
    I missed whatever happened to the 42 who was really the only car that could keep up with the four.
