most 2016 Chase top-5s (six) among

  • 17 May 2019
    导出博客文章No rule exists that a driver has to win the season finale at Homestead-Miami
    Speedway to win the title.But in the first two years of the elimination-style
    Chase for the Sprint Cup format, a Chase driver has won the race to hoist the
    Sprint Cup trophy. And not just that, in both years the driver who finished
    second was among the four championship-eligible drivers.So when Joey Logano,
    Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards say they think they have to win
    Sunday, they have the relatively small history of the elimination-style Chase at
    least backing up such a statement.We race to win every week -- why should we
    race differently for a championship, right? said Logano, who was foiled by a bad
    pit stop in the 2014 championship race. Were racing to win that race, and thats
    ultimately going to have a championship attached to that.Heres how the four
    finalists -- in order of NASCAR seeding, based on best finish in the previous
    round -- stack up heading into the 2016 title bout:1. Joey LoganoTeam Penske No.
    22 FordChampionships: NoneWins in the third round: OnePoints: 4,118 (first)Why
    he will win the title: Logano has won two of the three elimination races in this
    Chase, which shows his ability to capitalize on the moment. He has all the
    momentum and the experience of falling short in 2014, and he appears to be
    having the most fun of anyone in the Chase. Why? Maybe because he has the most
    Chase wins over the past three years (seven).Why he wont: A Ford has not won in
    the past nine races on a 1.5-mile or 2-mile aerodynamic-dependent track. Logano
    was second at Texas, but that might not be good enough Sunday.2. Jimmie
    JohnsonHendrick Motorsports No. 48 ChevroletChampionships: Six (2006, 2007,
    2008, 2009, 2010, 2013)Wins in the third round: OnePoints: 4,078 (sixth)Why he
    will win the title: Because hes Jimmie Johnson and hes already won six of these
    trophies. He also rips the heart out of the people he calls the haters, and its
    time to disappoint the people who cant accept his greatness.Why he wont: Johnson
    rarely has had to run spectacular at Homestead to win the title. He has just
    four top-5s in 15 career starts at the track.3. Carl EdwardsJoe Gibbs Racing No.
    19 ToyotaChampionships: NoneWins in the third round:?OnePoints: 4,071
    (eighth)Why he will win the title: His two victories at Homestead and 9.2
    average finish at that track rank him above any of the other Chase finalists. He
    won two weeks ago at Texas, a somewhat similar track, with the same tire that
    teams will use Sunday. And having to lose one to win one? Well, Edwards has lost
    twice. He has finished second in the standings twice without winning the title
    -- one of only three drivers to finish second in the standings multiple times
    and not win a title.Why he wont: This is a what have you done for me lately?
    world. Edwards finished 11th at Homestead in 2015. His average finish in this
    Chase is 14.9, the worst among the four drivers.4. Kyle BuschJoe Gibbs Racing
    No. 18 ToyotaChampionships: One (2015)Wins in the third round: NonePoints: 4,113
    (second)Why he will win the title: Busch has the best 2016 Chase average finish
    (7.3) and most 2016 Chase top-5s (six) among the four finalists. He likes to do
    things that put him on another level: Only three drivers since 1972 have won
    their first two titles back-to-back.Why he wont: Busch has the longest winless
    drought among the four finalists; he hasnt won in his last 15 starts. Not only
    that, he hasnt been in position to win that often -- he has led more than three
    laps in just two of the Chase races. Kaufen

    should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of
    money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of
    those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so
    they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Miguel
    Cummins, the West Indies fast bowler, has signed as Worcestershires overseas
    player for the final three rounds of the Championship. Cummins, who made his
    Test debut against India last month, replaces South Africas Kyle Abbott as
    Worcestershire aim to maintain their pursuit of the one promotion spot available
    in Division Two this season.Abbott was called up for South Africas Test series
    with New Zealand and, after two defeats in their last three matches followed by
    conceding 551 against Northamptonshire, Worcestershire have decided to
    strengthen their attack by bringing in Cummins.With one day of their ongoing
    match at New Road to go, Worcestershire sit fourth in the Division Two table, 56
    points behind leaders Essex after they secured a three-day win against
    Leicestershire.Steve Rhodes, Worcestershires director of cricket, said: We have
    signed Miguel for the last three games of the season. I am delighted not only to
    be getting someone who has been playing recently but also someone who has
    recently been playing international cricket and that says a lot for his
    quality.He played in the West Indies-India series and was successful in the
    penultimate Test of that series. He is a young guy with no experience of county
    cricket or English conditions but he is hungry to do well, try and impress and
    make an impact and he has got this opportunityy in the last three games and we
    are looking forward to having him on board.ddddddddddddHe is a little bit
    quicker than any of our bowlers, with a bit of bounce, and he is well thought of
    by Ottis Gibson. I spoke to him and he gave a very good recommendation for him
    and when you look to give someone an opportunity, you want someone with a point
    to prove.There is a lot of unavailability [of overseas players] towards the end
    of the season and we are very lucky to get Miguel.Cummins, who took 6 for 48 in
    the St Lucia Test against India, has a career record of 125 first-class wickets
    at 22.44. He was the most successful pace bowler in this years WICB Professional
    Cricket League, with 33 at 20.69. He is expected to arrive at the club on Monday
    and be available to play Essex at Chelmsford, starting on Wednesday, followed by
    games against Sussex and Derbyshire.I am relishing the chance to play county
    cricket for the first time, Cummins said. I am always keen to learn and broaden
    my cricketing knowledge and experiences and this is an ideal opportunity for me.
    Several West Indian players have played for the county and I hope I can make a
    significant impact and help the club towards its goal of trying to achieve
    promotion. ' ' '
