Maybe it's just coincidence, but NASCAR does seem to have a bunch of coincidence.
Kevin Harvick winning his first race after replacing Dale Sr, narrowly beating the 24 (pretty impressive for a rookies 3rd start in the Cup series).

JJ's win at Atlanta after the Hendrick plane crash.

Of course we can just say that Harvick is a great driver and the "3" team was still intact after Dale's death.

As for JJ, he won that race at Martinsville, then Atlanta, we all know he's that good to win under pressure situations. (Kurt Busch won the championship in 2004).

Well, let's be honest here.. That one isn't all that surprising.. SHR and Hendrick had 6 of the top 7 positions in qualifying.. And sitting on the pole there is 99% a function of the crew, engine shop and fab shop.

Fontana loses and Daytona picks up another.

While I love the road courses, I wasn’t thrilled with the TV coverage or racing at NASCAR’s inaugural road course race at Daytona this past season.
