Nascar Sprint Cup Series Betting this weekend will take place at the Sunday’s Austin Speaks 400 and the 12th race of the Series from Dover, Delware. This Dover Track is located on the Peninsula Delmarva and is one of two concrete tracks on the Sprint Cup Circuit. Thus far this season many of the top drivers from last season are struggling to stay in the chase.
With only 15 races to go, the Drivers have to really jockey for the top positions as on the 26th of September as this is the cutoff date for the chase and Drivers who are without the required points lose out as only the top 12 drivers continue in the Chase. These top 12 point leaders are the only drivers who are allowed to participate in the final 10 races of the Sprint Cup Series.
One such Driver that is surely getting nervous is none other than Tony Stewart who is currently 59 points behind the 12th place racer Dale Earnhart, Jr. True, with 15 races remaining that point difference is not out of reach for Stewart. The one thing in his favor is that his best showing this year has been on the only other concrete track on the Circuit at Bristol, Tennessee where he finished second.
Other news is that Nascar’s Brian Vickers has been hospitalized and will not be able to take part in the Dover Austin Speaks 400. The reason for this was due to an unknown medical condition and medical testing is continuing. Latest news tells us he has been affected by blood clots in his legs and around his lungs!
As Tony Stewart is having his problems so is the most popular driver Jimmie Johnson who was involved in four different accidents in his last race and the last one finished his racing for the day. An unusual day for the driver who won three races already this Series.
As racing goes, the fans would like to think that the Gibbs racing team is gathering speed and position on Johnson’s Hendricks team. Jimmie hope to be up front at Dover as it also is on of his favorite tracks and really enjoys the challenges the track presents to the Drivers.
Other news is that Eric Sadler was involved in an accident on a straight away hitting the wall on a practice run Friday and will be required to use his back up car. In the case of going to a back up car, the car and driver will be place in the back of the pack on Sunday.
There are many other interesting stories in the Nascar Sprint Cup Series and we could write a chapter, a book, and/or a series on all the trials and tribulations of the racing circuit. One only needs to take a visit to the new NASCAR HALL OF FAME that opened this past Tuesday in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Shrine of Memory stuff is located in a 150,000 square foot building with racing simulators, many interactive activates, and some 150 plus video screens.
