Kansas musings

That was quite an interesting line Carl Edwards took over the final laps while trying to run down Jimmie Johnson.

I've seen drivers change their lines (low, middle, high, etc.) attempting to catch someone, but they'd still always stay within what one would describe as a natural running groove. Edwards went outside the norm and nearly stole the show.

He compared it to a move made one would make in a video game. Gotta say, I've been there, done that. In fact, that's about the only way I drive those video games. Pedal to the metal with the walls serving as my brakes. (I never said I was good at the games).


In my Power Rankings today, I led with Joe Gibbs Racing's Chase struggles. The story, however, doesn't end with Stewart, Hamlin and Busch.

Joey Logano, who will replace Stewart next season, isn't having much luck either. In his two events he has finished 32nd and 39th.

Sure he's racing in Hall of Fame Racing equipment, but I think there were some out there thinking "Sliced Bread" could step right in and instantly make that HOF car a top 20 contender. This Cup gig isn't that easy and I think even when he makes the move to the 20 car he's going to struggle more than most people think.
