his Sunday, NASCAR will host its third biggest race of the year, The Brickyard 400. Any race fan will tell you that Indianapolis Motor Speedway is a monumental track in racing history. For 22 years, Nasser has visited the track every July for one of its most important races.
Throughout the years, many drivers have had the honor going to Victory Lane and kissing the bricks at Indy. With a few days away until the big event, let’s take a look at some of the names who could make history on Sunday.
With former teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. out with a concussion, Jeff Gordon came out of retirement to fill in. Jeff is no stranger to winning at Indy. He already has 5 wins under his belt, which came when he was driving the iconic #24. This Sunday, Jeff will be driving the #88 car and given his record in Indy, expect Gordon to get a good finish or possibly a win.
Like his teammate Jeff Gordon, Johnson has had tremendous luck at Indy with 4 wins of his own. So far in 2016, Johnson has scored two victories, yet he’s been in a bit of a slump this summer. Scoring his fifth Brickyard victory could be just the thing for Johnson to recapture his momentum.
An injury earlier this year caused Stewart to miss most of the racing season. After returning in April, Stewart had a string of bad finishes. Yet, his luck turned around in June when he scored a victory at Sonoma. Since then, Stewart has had a string of top-5 finishes.
Stewart is an Indiana native and has won twice at the trace. With momentum on his side, there’s a good chance Stewart will capture his third Brickyard win come Sunday.
When people think of Indy, they think of Penske. The team has win many IndyCar races at the track, but never won there in a NASCAR race. They came close last year with Joey Logano, but ended up finishing second. This year, Penske stands a good chance of finally capturing a NASCAR victory at Indy with it’s top driver, Brad Keselowski.
Keselowski has four victories this year, with his most recent win coming two weeks ago at Kentucky. If Keselowski can keep with his winning ways, he could be driving into Victory Lane on Sunday giving Penske their long overdue victory.
Last year’s winner Kyle Busch has proven why he’s one of the best drivers in NASCAR. With numerous victories and a championship, there’s no stopping Kyle Busch. Each week, he shows how competitive he is on the track. Throughout his career, he’s captured a couple of repeat victories at tracks, so look for Kyle Busch to make it two-in-a-row at Indy.
