NASCAR Championship Weekend

by

Welcome, race fans to Ford Champion weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway in Florida. These are the final races of the NASCAR season. NASCAR Camping World Series Champion Ron Hornaday clinched his Trophy last week at Phoenix, with Owner Kevin Harvick winning that race.

On Friday, the trucks raced the Ford 200, with Kevin again winning the race in his new 2010 truck. Ron Hornaday in his KHI truck was racing against Kyle Busch in his Billy Ballew Toyota truck for the Owner Championship. Ron finished in the top 10, but Kyle didn’t have a very good night. KHI wins the owner championship, and Chevrolet wins the manufacture championship. Harvick and Hornaday did side by side burn-outs again, with Harvick turning his into donuts and smoke. A great ending to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season.

On Saturday, in the Ford 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series race, Kyle Busch needs only to start the car to win his first NASCAR Championship. Carl Edwards will start on the pole, with Ryan Newman starting second in the KHI #33 car. 52 cars and teams showed up for this last race. Sadly, nine teams went home.

On Sunday, Jimmy Johnson hopes to make history by being the only driver in NASCAR history to win four Championships in a row. Johnson starts the Ford 400 from the pole, starting first with a speed of 173.919. Rookies, Scott Speed and Marcos Ambrose are starting second and third. But don’t look for them to interfere with Johnson’s bid on history making. The Chase for the Sprint Cup is twelve drivers in the last ten races, that have a shot at the Championship. In this final race, only Johnson and Mark Martin have a shot at the trophy. Jeff Gordon, in third will be officially eliminated as soon as Johnson starts the race. But it will be a Hendrick Championship, as his three drivers are first, second and third in points. This will be his eighth championship.

I’m looking forward to this rest of the Ford Champion Weekend with the Ford 300 on Saturday and the Ford 400 on Sunday. I’ll see you later, dear NASCAR fans.
