Tonight it's round 2 of the Northwest Xfinity Series as we head to Texas Motor Speedway for 150 miles of fixed Xfinity Series racing. Last week 38 drivers showed up at Daytona and 36 took the green flag but ultimately it was series Newcomer Donovan Barr who survived the 200 mile battle of attrition to come away victorious in a photo finish (Caution ended the race).
This week we put the superspeedways behind us and head to Texas for a mile and a half of race in the afternoon sun. With track temperatures approaching 110 degrees throttle control will be the theme of this race
There are a lot of new drivers this season and last week we saw a first-time winner in victory lane. Will we see another one tonight? With a hot track and a short fuel load, this car will be a handful to get around the track 100 times so whoever drives it to victory lane tonight will have earned it.
Last Season Shawn Breitzman who took the checkered flag but it was Jason Berg who closed out his championship run last season with 2 dominant wins on 1.5 miles tracks, which I think makes these 2 drivers the favorites out there tonight. But with so many new faces in the field, it is anything but a foregone conclusion. Good luck to all tonight!
