• William Byron is 40/1 to win 2019 Quaker State 400 at Kentucky

    1 month ago - By NASCAR notes

    Hendrick Motorsports showing lots of speed on 1.5s lately. William Byron on Kentucky:
    “Kentucky has lost a lot of grip quickly. They repaved it less than five years ago and it has really gotten grayer and grayer each year. I'm sure it's going to be even more slick this year when we go back. It's one of those tracks that takes a while to get rubber, so you just have to almost wait for that process to happen and make sure you tune your car to the rubber and not the clean track. That's really all I'm worried about is once the rubber lays down, you know it's going to be a different...

    Chase Elliott has six top-fives this season, and a Talladega win. Chase Elliott on Kentucky:
    “Kentucky has been a different place, especially since they repaved it. The differences in the corners now has been a challenge. I feel like we ran a little better there before they repaved it than we have after - or I have, personally - but I'm looking forward to it.”
    Elliott on the challenges of Kentucky:
    “Kentucky and New Hampshire are two racetracks that have been harder for me than others. Some challenging racetracks coming up - they are all challenging, but I feel like those specifically are...

    Jimmie Johnson has top-fives in his last two starts. Getting Better! Jimmie Johnson on Kentucky:
    “We are back to getting some top-fives and knocking on the door right now. These guys on my team have been working really hard. I think we're starting to hit our stride as a group. While I've had a lot of success on 1.5-mile tracks, Kentucky has always seemed to be a challenge for me. It's got bumps. Going into Turn 1 you are climbing up a hill and then quickly descend until you actually turn into Turn 3. The cars are very edgy and then you get some grip off of Turn 4 and then you are down the...
