After 11 races in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, there are a few surprises when it comes to claiming victories. Some of the ones discussed are personal favorites and the others should come to a surprise on all cylinders.
Kenseth claimed his first victory in the 2015 season the 8th race of the season at Bristol. With some late season dominance and a run in the chase, Kenseth has failed to bring that momentum into the 2016 season. However, Kenseth has also been apart of some misfortunes, such as the catastrophic Talladega race a couple weeks ago and at Daytona the first race of the season for the historic finish. Capping a 2015 season with 5 wins, I’m sure you’ll expect a solid couple wins for Kenseth in time to come.
Martin Truex Jr.
For as dominant as Truex has been this season and competing in the championship 4 in 2015, he still has 3 career wins over 13 seasons. After his heartbreaking finish at Daytona this season, Truex has still yet to find a victory this season. In a rise in dominance and the recent joint of forces with Joe Gibbs Racing and Furniture Racing, Truex will claim his 4th career victory this season, possibly more.
Starting 2015 off right with a victory in Daytona, Logano claimed 6 wins in the 2015 season. After 11 races this season, Logano claims 3 top fives, but no wins. After thinking Logano was going to win the chase last season and dominating in the seasons end, expect to see Logano develop more career victories.
Kasey Kahne- must make chase this season in order to develop job security with Hendrick Motorsports.
Dale Earnhardt Jr.- Jr. Nation, Daytona is still coming where Dale Jr. won last season, he will claim at least one win this season.
Austin Dillon- even though the young star is in his 3rd season in the Sprint Cup, he still seeks that first Sprint Cup win.
Jamie McMurray- for as dominant as Jamie Mac has been, could we see career win number 8 here in 2016?
Tony Stewart- must win and place in the top 30 in points to make the chase.
