So we’ve seen the Hendrick-powered cars and the Chevrolets as a whole, seemingly dominate the last two flat tracks. Race fans have been asking me once we get to the road course this weekend and back to the banked tracks, will we see a resurgence from the Toyota and Ford camps.
Now sure, Kyle Busch sat on the outside pole and got the only Toyota Top 10 finish, but again, even he was a non-factor Sunday. So again, this one has me scratching my head a bit. The picture was a little bit better from the Ford camp.
There were three Fords in the Top 10 at the end of Sunday’s race and actually five Ford’s in the Top 12. Teammates Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano led the Blue Oval Brigade by finishing sixth and seventh. Then you had Greg Biffle in tenth. He was followed by his teammate Carl Edwards in eleventh and then Marcos Ambrose was twelfth.
Now there is no question this weekend whether it’s the actual teams or the horsepower they are generating. Running on the road course of Watkins Glen this weekend will equal that out. Actually in two weeks when we return to Michigan it will be a better measuring stick of where the three manufacturers stack up because as we all know, Michigan is a place where you want all the horsepower the motor-room can give you.
