Joey Logano faces 'do-or-die' race — NASCAR notebook

NBC broadcaster delivers fiery argument about disqualifying NASCAR drivers NBC broadcaster delivers fiery argument about disqualifying NASCAR drivers

Spencer Gallagher and the No. 23 Allegiant team qualified 23rd for the VA529 College Savings 250 NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Richmond Raceway. Others who have to win Richmond to make the Playoffs include Clint Bowyer, Joey Logano, Daniel Suarez, and Dale Jr. They will have their own race within a race to make sure they aren't the lowest of the three in the rankings in case a non-winner takes one automatic spot with a victory at Richmond. Cup drivers with five or more years of experience can not race at Homestead-Miami Speedway. In short, Saturday night's race at Richmond will be a must-see event, to see who will get the final 3 Playoff positions. Sadler understands that to win the 2017 championship, he'll nearly certainly have to win the season finale. This point system is all about Homestead and how you produce in that one-off race in November. He is the 10th most expensive driver in the field this weekend, and will be a great pivot play off the more popular drivers. That is a midweek race a lot of people could get behind. His engine blew 18 laps into the Southern 500, a last-place finish that put the nail in his coffin on making the playoffs on points.

Worst moment: Just a little more than four months ago, Earnhardt finished 30th at Richmond. Right now is the right time to get hot and Busch, a former champion knows how to manage the playoffs. That is not a comfortable position to be in because there is always an opportunity for a guy on the outside to win a race and bump you back another position.

"We tried some things in the second practice that won't get us front-end speed, but we did some things that I think will help our vehicle on the long run".

"Just right now, if we had to line up and race, I think we've got about a sixth to 12th place vehicle", Earnhardt said after Friday's final practice at the.75-mile short track. Can the 21-year-old pull of an upset win at Richmond? Martin Truex Jr., Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch have combined to win six of the last eight races.

Amongst those top 16 points drivers, Chase Elliott, Matt Kenseth, and Jamie McMurray are locked in a battle between themselves to not be 16th in points and on the hot seat should an outside driver win the race. But keep an eye on rookie Erik Jones, who enters Richmond riding a streak of five consecutive top-10 finishes and almost won August 19 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Subsequently, the No. 22 team floundered, knocking Logano out of contention for a playoff spot on points.

"When I look at those things, I feel confident that this is a track if we do everything right, (and) it won't be easy by any means, but if we do everything right, we can squeak one out".
