Ryan Blaney would need every bit of that front bumper, in beating out fellow Ford driver Ryan Newman by 0.007 seconds in the sixth closest finish in Monster Energy history. Blaney would lead the front of the pack with a two-lap restart, and with drafting support from Aric Almirola it was enough to get him that gap he needed on the field. Continue reading →
Everyone likes free money. Sports gambling has swept the nation, and its time to take advantage of this expert mind (I’m 2-0 since I have been keeping record…..humblebrag.) I will be giving out my over of the week, my lock of the week, my underdog of the week, and my future bet. Let’s get rich.
