Championship driver Kyle Busch takes top pit stall from Denny Hamlin

NASCAR will consider all ideas for changes to sport

NASCAR will consider all ideas for changes to sport

The Ford EcoBoost 400, the 2018 NASCAR Cup Series season finale and Championship 4 race, is scheduled to take place this Sunday, November 18. He announced earlier Friday that he and crew chief Mike Wheeler are parting ways at the end of this season and Hamlin seemed emotional about the split. The two drivers have had a history the past month, since Logano bumped Truex out of the lead to win the race at Martinsville Speedway, and the two battled fiercely on Sunday, at one point bumping each other with just over 60 laps remaining.

Joe Gibbs issued a team order on the eve of NASCAR's championship that gave Kyle Busch an edge over the other three title contenders. "Last week it was (said) 'This penalty is going to slow them down.' The mentality of the race team is to always push the limits".

He passed Truex with 12 laps remaining and pulled away to win for Roger Penske, the auto owner who celebrated this year his election into the NASCAR Hall of Fame, a 17th victory in the Indianapolis 500 and now a second title in NASCAR's top series. Logano is also the only driver who has yet to host NASCAR's premier series championship. I don't know what else to say. "If the roles were reversed, I think we would hope for the same thing".

"For me, there's always some incentive in proving to people that you can do something that isn't what they think you should do", Harvick said. Here is a look at the four drivers who will compete for the 2018 Championship.

"He sure delivered for us", Penske said.

"We definitely want to end on a high note and try to win, in 2013 we were in the same predicament where we hadn't won a race until the final race and we got it done, so hopefully it's our time to do it", Hamlin said.

It's going to be an intriguing race, so without further thoughts here is my pick I like Kevin Harvick to win the race and the second Championship of his career.

Nuggets add WNBA star Sue Bird to front office
The 38-year-old is an 11-time WNBA All-Star, and ranks first in the WNBA in career games, career minutes played and in assists. Bird was originally the Storm's No. 1 overall pick in the 2002 WNBA Draft after a stellar collegiate career at CT .

"Today we weren't even close", said Busch, who started second and had seen encouraging signs in the practices leading up to Sunday's race.

Representatives from the four championship teams held a news conference at Homestead and insisted the sport is moving in the right direction. That's just the way it goes. Adam called a great race, got us in position there when we ran long and caught that caution, luckily, and everything came to fruition. "It hurts a little, and I'm going to miss all of the guys". That's just one race down and two to go on NASCAR Championship Weekend. Busch and Harvick ended the season with eight wins each, while Truex had four. Logano was on track to win the title in 2015 but a feud with Matt Kenseth contributed to Logano being locked out of the finale.

Logano also had the best 10-consecutive lap average in the final practice (165.018), followed by Truex and Busch. "But Logano's Ford stuck to the turn and he blew by Truex".

And in the final 15-lap shootout to the finish, Logano simply drove around the outside of Truex and pulled away.

-Denny Hamlin also failed to win a race for the first time since he became a full-timer in 2006.

NASCAR's season of doom and gloom sputters toward the checkered flag with a stout championship field but the inability to distance itself from everything that's gone wrong in this trying year.
