One casualty of “chopping block week” occurred Tuesday morning when BK Racing relieved Pat Tryson of his duties as the head wrench for David Reutimann’s No. 83 entry.

Imagine for a second the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series is like an NFL game. You’re three days out from a 38-17 finish where your favorite team simply dominated their opponent. Then, on a Wednesday, you find out the victory has been stripped. Why? Your favorite team got called for a 10-yard holding penalty, after the fact, that officials feel altered the outcome of the entire game.

AAA Texas 500 Preview, Odds and Fantasy NASCAR Predictions

There are just three races left in the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season and heading into Sunday’s AAA Texas 500, none of the sport’s Big Three is guaranteed a shot at the championship. It was Joey Logano, not Martin Truex Jr., in Victory Lane at Martinsville last weekend after a last-lap bump-and-run secured him a spot.

First Data 500 at Martinsville Preview, Odds and Fantasy NASCAR Predictions

Heading into the First Data 500, the 2018 NASCAR playoffs has been through a miserable stretch. Talladega was a four-car Stewart-Haas Racing freight train that gave us the fewest lead changes since 1973. Then, last Sunday a Kansas elimination race became notable for its unique ability to eliminate people from staying awake. The Round of 8 starts with some sluggish momentum in what’s been another difficult season for stock car racing. Pit road penalties? Pitiful passing? Zzzz.
