With his victory at Chicagoland, Leahy takes over as the regular season points leader, by two points over Luza.
To me, these are three things that, if they aren’t getting coverage, should be on everyone’s minds as we head into Chicagoland Speedway this weekend.
“Boy, oh boy, we delivered, and that’s a huge relief, and I’m just stoked.”
After going winless at “The Tricky Triangle” in his first 25 attempts, Busch now has three wins in the last four races in the Pocono mountains.
“It was a fun end of the race. I wish I didn’t have to do it like that, but it probably made it exciting.”
“I was able to hold my position and then just, like, blow by people after a few laps when everyone else seemed to get tight.”
“We worked our way to the front, and man, it was just a rocket ship.”
“Once we got the lead – thank you to my pit crew, they did an outstanding job – it’s really special to be here.”
“We are putting pieces of the puzzle together and it seems like three of the five disciplines we have a much better handle on right now, which is very encouraging.”
“It’s without being said that these moments are elite, they are special,” Logano said. “…These moments here, they make me dig a little harder.”
“I was on the verge of pretty much blowing the engine up, that’s how much I was pushing, pushing water and everything.”
“You just had to hold them off. Being out front was important tonight.”
“It is just huge for our team to get this second win and inching toward being the team to beat.”
“I knew if I was going to get by Keegan, I had to do it very, very quickly, because there is no guarantee with those cautions like we saw, and just to try and get a gap for all the guys that took four (tires).”
Qualifying doesn’t have to be a show… Not just one, but two times Hamlin had to work his way up from the back of the field… I’m looking forward to the new-look NASCAR schedule.
Ryan Michael Luza took home the checkers once again, holding off Keegan Leahy and Corey Vincent at Texas Motor Speedway.
