I hope so. A good guy who races clean. MTJ was just so dominant. Larson was 2 seconds back and everyone else even further. Only 9 cars on the lead lap.

Got my tickets for COTA weekend. Really looking forward to that.

Martin is my favorite non-HMS driver. Just seems like a chill guy and deserving of what he has achieved.

What him and his wife have been through.. Well.. Not sure they're married, but I remember hearing a few months back that Sherry Pollex's cancer had returned.. Gotta feel for them.

Hendrick 1-2-3-4 at Dover ! Nice! Secures Bowmans ride at least for another year.

The last first four sweep in the modern era was Roush Racing in 2005 at Homestead. The Biff/Mark Martin/Matt Kenseth/Carl Edwards. (Tony Stewart won championship finishing 15th).

Prior to that it only happened once in 1956 and again in 1957, Team DePaolo. Race winner both times was Fireball Roberts.

Larson deserved to win that race. Pit crew didn't help him at the end.

I agree and I like Larson a smidge more than Bowman, but great to see the #48 team get a win. Now it's time for my #1 driver, Chase, to get to victory lane.

Agree completely. It is great to see the Hendrick Chevys coming back big after the last few years . Too bad/Ironic it couldnt have been in Jimmys final year. Chase has got to have one coming . I too like Larson but like to see the underdog like Bowman prove that they deserve their ride. The kid seems a little awkward and nerdy but he doesnt seem to have that entitled prima dona attitude that so many of these young guys have right out of the gate. A little humility goes a long way. I think Hendrick has a pretty dang good stable of young drivers now. Pretty impressive when you figure he has replaced 3 of the sports biggest names in the last years.

Chase should be the favorite at COTA this weekend. Really tough, technical course that even F1 drivers call hard.

It's going to be a survival road course. Many favorites will be out early due to getting tangled up with less skilled drivers. But I hope your correct about #9!
