CUP SERIES WIN LIST HOLDING AT FIVE
With Kyle Busch’s three-race winning streak, including Saturday night’s victory at Richmond Raceway, the list of Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series winners this season stands at five. So if there are twelve new names in Victory Lane over the final seventeen regular-season races, then there’ll be one driver with a race win to his credit that will not get a spot in the 2018 Playoffs – which will include only the top sixteen eligible drivers based primarily on race wins. Kevin Harvick is the only other Cup Series driver with multiple victories this year. He also has three. Other race winners this year are Austin Dillon, Martin Truex Junior and Clint Bowyer … The list of notable drivers looking for their first Cup Series win of 2018 includes Brad Keselowski, Kyle Larson, Denny Hamlin, Kasey Kahne, Ricky Stenhouse Junior, Ryan Blaney, Jimmie Johnson, Joey Logano, Ryan Newman and Kurt Busch … Next stop is Sunday’s GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway, where Stenhouse is the defending winner. The last driver with back-to-back victories in the track’s spring race was Jeff Gordon, who doubled up in 2004 and 2005.

LOGANO ON A ROLL
Joey Logano might still be winless in the 2018 Monster Energy Series, but the Team Penske driver has climbed to second place in the standings with top-ten finishes in eight of the year’s first nine races – including Saturday’s fourth-place run at Richmond. Logano is now eyeing a return trip to Talladega Superspeedway, where he finished fourth in his most recent start there last fall.

TRACK FACTS
► Christopher Bell of Joe Gibbs Racing posted the best finish among rookies in NASCAR’s two national series that competed this past weekend at Richmond Raceway, winning Friday night’s ToyotaCare 250
X-finity Series race.
► There were three different stage winners in those two national series and two of them came away from Virginia’s capital city with top-five overall finishes. In the X-finity Series, Elliott Sadler won the second stage before finishing third overall. Daniel Hemric won the opening stage but faded to twenty-ninth place at the checkered flag. In Saturday’s Monster Energy Series headliner, Joey Logano won each of the first two stages on his way to a fourth-place overall finish in the Toyota Owners 400.
► Bryan R. Sperber, president of I-S-M Raceway in Phoenix, has been announced as an inductee in the 2018 class of the West Coast Stock Car Hall of Fame. In his sixteen years at I-S-M Raceway, Sperber has overseen the growth of the one-mile desert oval into one of the premier motor sports venues in the country, hosting both NASCAR and IndyCar events. The track is in the midst of a 178 million-dollar modernization project that will be completed later this year and unveiled in November during the raceway’s annual fall NASCAR weekend from November 9th through the 11th. Before arriving in Phoenix, Sperber spent five years as track president of Watkins Glen International – which, like
I-S-M-R, is owned by International Speedway Corporation, parent company of the Motor Racing Network. Sperber will be enshrined at a ceremony in Napa, California, on June 21st.

NASCAR BIRTHDAY
Paul Wolfe (Milford, New York), Monster Energy Series crew chief for Team Penske’s Brad Keselowski, is celebrating his 41st birthday today.

ON THIS DATE … 35 YEARS AGO
April 24th, 1983: Darrell Waltrip won the Virginia National Bank 500 Cup Series race at Martinsville Speedway, his second straight victory that kicked off a run of four wins in six weeks. It was the sixth of Waltrip’s eleven victories on the Virginia half-mile, a total topped only by Richard Petty’s fifteen. Waltrip finished second in that year’s final championship standings, forty-seven points behind Bobby Allison. Today, all three drivers are members of the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
