NASCAR Monster Energy Series Predictions - Bojangles' Southern 500 9/3/17

Throwing it back: Like I mentioned, it is Throwback Weekend at Darlington, where the Southern 500 will be contested tonight among a field of cars carrying awesome retro paint schemes. Track: Darlington Raceway (oval, 1.366 miles). Fast facts: Christopher Bell leads the series with 615 points, four wins and 24 playoff points.Ben Rhodes has finished 11th or better in each of his last three starts.The four previous winners in Bowmanville, which has hosted the series since 2013, were under 21. Now only a victory in the Southern 500 would earn him the prize.

Martin Truex Jr. and his #78 Toyota seem to be able to find their way to the front at nearly every track this season. He will have to win at Richmond on Saturday in the regular-season finale to clinch a spot in the playoffs. This year, Truex ran the not quite Dale Earnhardt Sr. auto because he just did, and Jones had a bunch of rookies on the vehicle because he's a rookie.

"Seems like we've been second a lot this year", The said. Quick Note: See what 28 NASCAR drivers are doing to support the Martin Truex Jr Foundation's "Drive for Teal & Gold" campaign.

Jimmie Johnson, who qualified 18th, said when he joined the Cup series in 2002 competing at Darlington was about racing the track. In line with that focus, 17 members of the NASCAR Hall of Fame were recognized during pre-race ceremonies, including honorary pace auto driver Bill Elliott, one of the most successful drivers in Darlington Raceway history.

Harvick got back inside the top five by the time the yellow flag waved for the second time on lap 41, and he eventually got back up to as high as second in the running order.

If the playoffs were to begin this week, Kenseth and Jamie McMurray would be the last two drivers in, while Bowyer would be the first driver out.

Typically, Darlington is an very bad track for rookies. Logano ended a miserable summer in 18 at Darlington and needs to pull off a sweep after winning the spring race at Richmond. However, if a playoff eligible driver wins the race that are not among the 13 already in, this becomes really close really quick. He did win at Daytona and Talladega, giving him two of three necessary victories. Here are some drivers we like to contend for the victory. Will it be 12 in 12 this weekend? William Byron, who'll join them in the big series next year, was the first Xfinity regular finishing fifth. Chase Elliott, Daniel Suarez and Erik Jones are among drivers hoping that this could come true.

More importantly, it gets a core group of fans that may have soured on the sport in recent years to perk up for a second. A jump from 10th to first may not be out of the question.

NASCAR's young guns are entering this weekend looking to make a splash at Darlington, led by Chase Elliott, whose father Bill won five times in his storied career at the track. But when Darlington Raceway officials wanted to honor the Gamecocks' national title, she thought it was right time for her first race. "But I think our race stuff is going to be great".

Who... had the best throwback paint scheme? "Gentleman Jim Whitt" won the track championship at Cajon Speedway in 1969 and his son Tobin, Cole's dad, won the track championship 20 years later in the "Lime Green Machine".

The following two tabs change content below. He'll be hard to miss.
