Which driver brings home the Sprint Cup?
ABC News - 5 months
Can't believe the editors here at ESPN.com want a Chase for the Sprint Cup outlook. Are they setting me up to fail? Who could predict that the last driver to make it out of the 2015 quarterfinal round -- Kyle Busch -- would win the title? He wouldn't have advanced if his teammate Matt Kenseth had won at Kansas Speedway (and therefore earned an automatic bid into the next round) instead of getting roughed up by Joey Logano. We all know how that ended up. So take these outlooks with a grain of salt. In these three-race rounds where race winners and best in points advance while eliminating four drivers, anything can happen culminating with the best-finisher-at-Homestead among the four finalists being crowned the champion. From fist bumps to fists thrown, the Chase is, by the nature of the rules and for better or for worse, unpredictable. Kyle Busch Team: Joe Gibbs Racing No. 18 Toyota . ...

Logano leads Team Penske 1-2 in Daytona practice
Yahoo News - about 1 year
(Reuters) - Team Penske showed its strength late in the final practice session for next Sunday's Daytona 500 when Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski jumped to the top of the leaderboard at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday. Logano, who won last year's Daytona 500, clocked the fastest speed of 195.933 mph as he led a draft involving Keselowski and Ryan Blaney on his final run of 29 laps. Keselowski, packed in the middle of the draft, finished a close second at 195.848 mph with Blaney of Wood Brothers Racing, a Team Penske affiliate, third at 195.797 mph. The trio had formed a strategy for Blaney, who has to qualify for the Feb. 21 Daytona 500 on speed, to put down a fast practice time in the unlikely event that rain washes out Sunday's qualifying.

The next week, at Auto Club Speedway, Logano had his breakout race, leading 41 laps. The final laps saw an intense dogfight between him and Hamlin; on the last lap proper, Logano and Hamlin were driving hard side-by-side down the straightaway, in what looked like what was going to be repeat of the photo finish from Darlington in 2003 but on the last corner, neither car lifted, both wrecked, while Kyle Busch slipped past and took the victory. Hamlin fractured his vertebra in the crash and after the race, Logano was confronted by Tony Stewart, who slipped back to 22nd after Logano blocked him on the final restart.
