Sunday is coming where NASCAR Father’s Day Break gives this motorsport the opportunity for their drivers t recharge their batteries. It comes on the heels of the temporary rule changes that were seen at Michigan International Speedway last weekend. So now it is time for us as fans of this sport to gain some necessary perspective so that we can push for more profit. Second half of the season starts at Sonoma next Sunday so let us ponder these points for next week’s action.
NASCAR Fathers Day Break : Kyle Busch Needs This Break
We first look at the curious case of Kyle Busch. Here we had a top five cashing machine in props and heads up wagering. Over the course of the first 15 races of the season, he got in the top 5 nine times. Has this magic run ended after those three victories? Last four races has seen him finish thirty or below in the standings. This is wagering death for heads up propositions. This does not mean the end of the road for him but for us betting on him in the immediate future. With Sonoma being only one of the two road courses on the circuit for the Sprint, it is hard to see him shaking off the doldrums there.

Martin Truex is the man for the most lead laps on the circuit so far this year. Even in the face of that, Joe Gibbs racing leads the teams in total amount of wins. Now is the time to look for the trend of new drivers winning to be snapped in 2016. We have had ten unique drivers win so far in the 15 races. 11 contests are left. History has demonstrated to us that only one or two more first time winners this season will happen. Bad news for fans of the ones that have now been in victory row for 2016.
So lots of questions will be answered in the second part of the season. Will Tony Stewart win his way in for his last season behind the wheel? Drivers that need to get that one win include Chase Elliott, Kyle Larson, Randy Newman, Kasey Kahne and a host of others. So digest on these salient points and we will be back next Saturday for our preview for the pivotal race in Sonoma. Good fortune in your wagering and Happy Fathers Day to all this Sunday.
