Geoff’s Journal: Previewing the championship race
I am hoping for an exciting race between those four and the rest of the field.
Like Keselowski, Kevin Harvick will also be representing the Ford brand in the final round. If either of them win the title, it would be the first time since 2004 that a Blue Oval driver won the championship.
Harvick is a great driver and a proven winner. He’s also known to have great luck, so if you’re a Harvick fan, watch out, because he could lift the trophy at Homestead.
Kyle Busch has won a title under this format, but he missed races in 2015 due to injury. He now has a chance to win a title, and this time, Busch started every race this season.
I like his attitude; he doesn’t like to lose. He shows his emotions, and I like that. I would try to show my emotions as a driver, and we all would show them in different ways.
Truex has been so strong at the 1.5-mile racetracks, it’s hard not to pull for him.
However, I’ll go on a limb, put my reputation on the line, and say Harvick will be the 2017 champion. He and his team seem really steady.
