Around the Track 10/21/15

Rule changes are coming to Talladega..more on that tomorrow..right now a look at the points..


Dale Jr & Matt Kenseth have to win to get in..that’s it with the two stars 31 & 35 points out of 8th place heading into the Alabama showdown..Kyle Busch & Ryan Newman can get in without a win but Kevin Harvick, Jeff Gordon & Martin Truex Jr will have to stumble badly-of course anything like that can happen at Talladega-& Joey Logano is already in while Denny Hamlin & Carl Edwards are solidly inside the top 8!


Chris Beasucher is slowly pulling away from his rivals, now 27 points up on defending champ Chase Elliot in the Xfinity Series & just 16 points separate Erik Jones, defending champion Matt Crafton & Tyler Reddick in the Camping Wworld Truck Series..


Finally Lewis Hamilton is cruising toward a 3rd consecutive Formula 1 title, leading Sebastion Vettel by 66 points heading into this weekend’s United States Grand Prix in Austin..
