  1. 1. ==== ====Find The Best Deals on Burton Back ====Kansas is the next stop on the NASCAR ScheduleIt hasnt taken long for drivers in the Chase for the Championship to separate themselves from therest of the pack. In just two races into the Chase, four drivers have already fallen more than 100points back from the leader, Jeff Burton. Look for the gaps to increase as the NASCAR Nextel Cupteams head to Kansas Speedway next week.Of the ten drivers currently in the Chase for the Championship, only one, Jeff Gordon, has anaverage finish in the top 10 at Kansas. The next closest Chase driver is Jimmie Johnson with a13th place average finish.Also expect the following drivers to do well next week:Tony Stewart - Average Finish 7thJamie McMurray - Average Finish 11thRyan Newman - Average Finish 12thCarl Edwards - Average Finish 12thNext Weeks Schedule:Nextel Cup: @ Kansas Speedway9/29/06 - 03:40pm NASCAR Nextel Cup Banquet 400 presented by ConAgra Foods Qualifying9/30/06 - 10:05pm NASCAR Nextel Cup Banquet 400 presented by ConAgra Foods Practice10/01/06 - 05:05pm NASCAR Nextel Cup Banquet 400 presented by ConAgra FoodsBusch Series: @ Kansas Speedway9/29/06 - 05:15pm NASCAR Busch Yellow 300 Practice9/30/06 - 11:05am NASCAR Busch Yellow 300 Qualifying9/30/06 - 02:05pm NASCAR Busch Series Yellow 300
  2. 2. Craftsman Truck Series off until October 7th at Talladega SuperspeedwayMixed Emotions for Richard Childress Racing!Richard Childress must be feeling a bit manic these days. It seems whenever good news comes,its quickly followed with bad. Coming off of Kevin Harvicks win in the Slyvania 300 last weekendat New Hampshire International Speedway, reports surfaced that RCR manipulated the wheelsused on both Kevin Harvick and Jeff Burtons cars to gain a competitive advantage. Both driversvehemently denied any wrongdoing.Next, rewind to yesterdays Dover 400 at Dover International Speedway where points leader KevinHarvick suffered mechanical problems late in the race that knocked him down to a 32nd placefinish. Any disappointment the #29 team felt from a poor finish was quickly erased when theirteammate, Jeff Burton, pulled out the win.While Kevin Harvick fell from the points leader to 5th place (-55 points), Jeff Burton assumed thepoints lead by 6 points over Jeff Gordon. And so it goes this year, whenever one RCR driversuffers from misfortune, another driver pulls through for not only his team but the entireorganization. Maybe this explains why RCR has two drivers in top 5 in points when no other teamdoes.NASCARs Odd CoupleThere is a new relationship brewing amongst two drivers currently in the Chase for theChampionship. Its a Beauty and the Beast sort of affair between two of the youngest NASCARtalents, Kyle Busch and Kasey Kahne.While most people would fail to understand why these two drivers are running in the same circles(no pun intended), its clear that they are becoming very close. Take yesterdays Dover 400 forexample. Both Kasey and Kyle spent a lot of time together in the garage while all the other Chasedrivers were busy on the track. That definitely was eyebrow raising!Now, if you look at the Chase standings, youll see that both are snuggled up to each other in 9thand 10th place. Again, very suspicious!Its puzzling to me why these guys are now getting so attached to each other. However, if thingskeep moving on the same track (again no pun intended), be sure to tune in to the NASCARawards banquet in December. There you will definitely see both drivers sitting together at the endof the championship table wiping each others tears.Dover 400 at Dover International Speedway RecapJeff Burton has been one of the unluckiest drivers in the 2006 NASCAR Nextel Cup season. Hehas led more laps than most this year, 637 to be exact, to never have finished in first place. Jeffsbad luck must have rubbed off on Matt Kenseth as the two were beating and banging on eachother in the closing laps of the Dover 400, however.Matt Kenseth dominated most of the Dover 400 and led the most laps only to have it taken in the
  3. 3. end by Jeff Burton. Both Burton and Kenseth raced each other hard over the final 40 laps of therace. Burton passed Kenseth with 6 laps to go. It was all for nothing though as Kenseth ran out ofgas with 2 laps remaining.Other championship contenders fared as follows:2. (-6 points) Jeff Gordon started on the pole but failed to lead a lap. Lets hope for Jeffs sake thatthe missed 5 points for leading a lap do not come into play for the championship3. (-18 points) A bad fuel decision could have cost Matt Kenseth big time. However, the mistakecame at the right time with only 2 laps remaining, and dropped Matt to a 10th place finish.3. (-18 points) NASCARs Silent Assassin, Denny Hamlin, had a strong yet quiet day. He finishedin 9th place and tied for 3rd in the championship standings.5. (-54 points) Thank goodness you have a 1st place finish from last weeks Sylvania 300 to goalong with yesterdays 32nd place, Kevin Harvick. Another finish like this one and youll be sittingat the end of the champions table in December.6. (-75 points) A mediocre 14th place finish keeps Mark Martin marred in the middle of thestandings. However, 75 points out of 1st with 8 races to go is not a huge deficit.7. (-102 points) NASCARs golden boy, Dale Earnhardt Jr, is done for this season. Jrs 21st placefinish was not an improvement over his 13th place finish last week.8. (-136 points) NASCARs 2006 Mr. Consistency award goes to.....someone other than JimmieJohnson. Jimmie needed something more than a 13th place finish to help rebound from lastweeks 39th place finish. What happened to the consistent top 10 finishes were use to?9. (-182 points) A 38th place finish and youre hopes of winning the 2006 championship are done,Kasey Kahne. Go hang out with Kyle Busch in the garage.10. (-224 points) A 40th place finish and youre done, Kyle Busch. See #9 above.This article is provided to you by Everything Sports, Inc. isowned and operated by Everything Sports, Inc.Article Source:
