Kevin Harvick, driver of the No. 4 Busch Light Ford Fusion for Stewart-Haas Racing:

What does it mean to move on with a chance to win another title?

“It means a lot, especially this year switching everything from our manufacturer to Ford and just seeing the steady climb of performance and peaking as the playoffs started and running good on really every racetrack that we’ve been to; and this has by far been our best round – all three top-fives and a win. It’s the right time of the year to be peaking. I feel really good about our mile-and-a-half program. Homestead has been a great racetrack for us through the years, and hopefully we can go down there and contend. I think, for us, you’re really happy with where you are just for the fact that as a company we know what we went through and kind of playing on house money at this point. So we’re gonna go down there and wing it and see what happens.”

 

Team owner Tony Stewart said earlier that he’s seen this script before with you, and you are going to go down to Homestead and win. Is it that easy for you?

“We have every intention of doing that. Our intention is to go down there and win the championship. I think if you’re one of those four and you don’t have that mentality, you’re not prepared for what you’re getting into, because I feel like you’re gonna have to win the race, you’re gonna have to not make mistakes. We’ve seen it year after year, mistakes and circumstances and things happen and you have to be there first, you have to have a chance, and you have to think you can do it. We know we can do it, and I think there are three past champions and a guy that has run well all year and won a lot of races, so it’s not like it’s gonna be just check the box and send the check. It’s guys that have done this before and won races, but for us we’re confident in our team and feel like we should have a chance.”

 

From the mental toughness aspect that is required to win a title, is this maybe the strongest field?

“I wouldn’t say it’s the strongest field, because I think as you look at the past, and if I’m not mistaken, I know the 78 has been there before, the 18 (of Kyle Busch) has been there before obviously. I don’t know if Brad (Keselowski) has been there before or not in this particular format, but it’s not something that these guys are just gonna cave in and give up on what they’re doing. Three of us have won championships, and Martin (Truex Jr.) has won a lot of races this year, so the pressure is really on the 78 and the 18. Those guys have dominated the year, and I feel like if they don’t win at this point they would probably feel like they’ve had a letdown. So it’s a lot of fun coming from behind and playing catch-up. And kind of playing that underdog role is much easier than being expected to go down there and win. We expect to win.”

Matt Kenseth spoiled the field at Phoenix Raceway on Sunday afternoon by taking his No. 20 Toyota to victory lane in an exciting late-race pass for the lead. Kenseth, driving the No. 20 Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing, picked up his first win of the season in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

“Yeah, it’s really not describable. With only two left, I didn’t think we were probably had a good chance of getting back to victory lane,” said an emotional Kenseth after the race. “It’s been I don’t know how many races – somebody’s probably going to tell me tonight – but it’s been at least 50 or 60, so it’s been a long time. We’ve had a lot of close ones. Just felt like it was never meant to be and today it was meant to be.”

The 39th career win did not come easy for the series veteran. Kenseth passed the strong car of Denny Hamlin on lap 232 and held the spot until being passed by Chase Elliott on lap 284. With 10 laps remaining, Kenseth re-took the lead from Elliott and was gone from there.

“Well, kept doing them cycles and short runs and we were a little too tight all day, but we were really pretty happy with it and when we got in front, we were just too loose and I got loose on that restart and Chase (Elliott) got by me and as soon as he got by me, it actually made my car better and I saw him get loose and starting to slip, so I knew we were going to have a heck of a race,” Kenseth added.

Elliott came 1.207 seconds why of scoring his first career win in the series and clinching a spot in the Final Four at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Since the inception of the Playoffs in 2004, it’ll be the first time ever that a Chevrolet will not have a shot at the championship. Elliott will leave Phoenix with a second-place finish.

‘Yeah, for sure. We were so close to having another shot next week. But man, I can’t say enough for our team and our Hooter’s Chevrolet this weekend,” said Elliott after the 312-lap event. “We fought really hard today and gave ourselves a chance. Our car was really fast on those short runs after a caution and after pit cycles on tires. It fired off really good and we did pretty good on the short run all day and got really tight as the run went long. And once the rubber laid back down I was just hanging on and hop I could get to traffic before I started going away. It’s just such a bummer. I was telling my guys we’ll get it right someday, or I’ll get it right someday. We’ve had so many good opportunities and at some point, we’ve just got to close.”

In addition to today’s victory, Kenseth goes into the season finale next Sunday, possibly his last ever premier series start, with 10 top five and 17 top 10 finishes through 35 races.

Martin Truex Jr. rounded out the top three finishers in Sunday’s Can-Am 500K. Truex started the day in fifth and finished eighth in stage one and fourth in stage two. Having seven wins and 69 Playoff points, Truex came into the weekend already locked into the Final Four at Homestead and just needed a smooth Sunday drive.

Truex will be the only driver racing for their first ever Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series championship next week.

In addition to Truex, Brad Keselowski, who finished 16th, Kevin Harvick, who finished fifth, and Kyle Busch, who finished seventh, will all be racing for the series championship at Homestead.

“We overcame a lot of obstacles and jumped a lot of hurdles today. I am glad I don’t have to relive this day, that is for sure,” said 2012 champion Keselowski. “I am just looking forward to going to Homestead. This feels a little bit like Christmas. Sometimes you need a little luck on your side. Today we had that. It wasn’t by any means where we wanted to run. We wanted to run up front and have a shot for the win. That wasn’t in the cards. We tried to run the smartest race we could and survive and it ended up paying off in the end.”  

Erik Jones, the highest finishing rookie at Phoenix Raceway, held a top 10 spot throughout the three stages and will leave the track with a fourth-place finish.

On-track drama occurred as the laps clicked off for a spot into the Final Four at Homestead. Denny Hamlin and Chase Elliott raced door-to-door for the victory when Hamlin made contact with the wall. The No. 11 Toyota showed some smoke and lost numerous positions before a tire finally let go on lap 274.

The incident in turn three ended the day for Hamlin and his shot at racing for the title next week.

“We got ran into the fence by the 24 (Chase Elliott) when we running up front all day,” said Hamlin. “We had a bad pit stop and then we didn’t really make any adjustments. Our car got really tight and we were just battling all we could to keep our track position. We weren’t and we allowed out competition to get close to us.”

Hamlin wasn’t the only driver looking to get into the Final Four at Homestead with a win that had issues. The day for Jimmie Johnson ended on lap 149 in turn three due to a right-front tire failure because of a melted bead. The incident ended their day and the seven-time champion finished 39th.

“No, I really didn’t have any warning. I knew I was hard on the brakes, but the run before we didn’t have any issues reported back,” said Johnson after the incident. “So, I felt like I was kind of doing the same thing. Unfortunately, with so few laps to go to the end of the Stage, as soon as I went in the corner and touched the brakes, the right front just blew. So, I hate it for this team. They’ve worked so hard all year long and I’m very proud of their efforts. It’s obviously not the result that we want, but we’re Hendrick strong and I’m proud of my Team 48 and very thankful for this sport that Lowe’s and Kobalt gives us, and Chevrolet. Unfortunately, we won’t have a chance to make eight (championship titles) this year, but we’ll come back next year and try real hard.”

Ryan Blaney will also not advance into the Final Four at Homestead-Miami Speedway next weekend. Blaney started on the pole and led the field for 11 circuits before being passed by eventual second-place finisher Chase Elliott. The young racer finished the afternoon in 17th.

Non-Playoff driver Kyle Larson recorded his fourth-consecutive DNF on Sunday. The California native, one of the fan-favorites going into the NASCAR Playoffs, developed an engine issue around lap 106. The team came down pit road and went under the hood before parking the car in the garage. The DNF will be will be the second of the season for the team as a result of an engine.

The series will move onto Homestead-Miami Speedway for the season finale. Coverage of the event will begin at 2:30 p.m. ET. on NBC. The Motor Racing Network will carry the live radio broadcast.

Trevor Bayne, driver of the No. 6 Ford EcoBoost Ford, had a right front tire go flat as a result of a melted bead that ultimately sent the Roush Fenway Racing driver hard into the outside retaining wall on Lap 228 in Sunday afternoon’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) event at Phoenix Raceway. The damage ended Bayne’s day prematurely, ultimately resulting in a 38th-place finish.

“I just lost a right front there off of turn four,” said Bayne after the race. ”The bead just got hot and the tire went down. We had a little damage early on when they checked up and knocked the bead fan off, so that cooling wasn’t getting there. The car got really tight for about three laps and we were in our pit window, we were gonna be coming in a couple laps and it just didn’t hang on. It was a really hard hit. That’s probably one of the harder frontal impacts I’ve had, but I feel fine and ready to go next week and end the season strong in Homestead. Thank you to all of my guys for their hard work this weekend and we will get back after it next week.”

Bayne took the green flag for the scheduled 312-Lap event from the 25th position and immediately reported to crew chief Matt Puccia that the Ford EcoBoost Ford was loose on entry and on exit of the corner while tight rolling through the center. To compound the handling woes further, Bayne sustained damage to the right front fender after making contact with another competitor when the field suddenly slowed going into the corner. Despite the handling issues, Bayne fought for track position throughout the caution free opening stage before taking the green and checkered flag on Lap 75 in the 28th position.

After pitting for four tires and repairs to the right front fender the Knoxville, Tenn. native returned to the track for Stage 2 in 34th. After initially reporting that he was tight from the center to the exit of the corner Bayne started to methodically move forward in a stage that was once again dominated by long green flag runs. The 2011 Daytona 500 champion worked his way back into the top 25 by Lap 125 and up to 23rd by the completion of Stage 2 on Lap 150, improving a total of 11 positions throughout the stage.

Prior to the beginning of the final stage Puccia called Bayne back to pit road for four tires and a chassis adjustment in the hopes of improving the handling of the Ford EcoBoost Ford further. Taking the ensuing restart in 22nd, Bayne maintained his track position until reporting to Puccia that the handling had shifted toward the tight side once again. Then, just as the window had opened for green flag pit stops, the right front tire went flat in the middle of the third and fourth corner, sending Bayne hard into the outside retaining wall.

With the damage too severe to continue, Bayne was ultimately scored with a 38th-place finish.

Next up for the MENCS is the 2017 season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday, Nov. 19.

Ryan Blaney and the No. 21 SKF/Quick Lane wrote another chapter in their storybook 2017 season by winning the pole for Sunday’s Can-Am 500 at Phoenix Raceway.

It was Blaney’s second career pole and the 118th for his Wood Brothers team.

Thanks in large part to their alliance with Team Penske, Blaney and the Wood Brothers team have emerged as one of the sport’s teams to watch. They’ve won a race, at Pocono Raceway, made it to the Round of Eight in the Monster Energy Cup playoffs and now have two poles and three other front-row starts, including one at Phoenix in March.

Blaney’s No. 21 SKF/Quick Lane Fusion was among the fastest cars all day on Friday at Phoenix. He was fifth fastest in practice with a best lap at 136.867 miles per hour.

He was fourth fastest in the first two rounds of qualifying, posting speeds of 137.122 mph in the opening round and bumping his speed up to 137.573 mph in the second.

His pole-winning lap was faster still, at 137.942 mph, and it gives him a head start on collecting the much-needed stage points he’ll need to score if he hopes to advance to the championship round of the Monster Energy Cup playoffs.

 “We got better each round, which is all you can ask for really,” Blaney said. “I thought the last round was our best.  We ran our fastest time and it was enough.  

 “That says something strong about this team. We started second here in the spring and to back that up and better it at a big weekend like this, where we have to perform well, that’s definitely encouraging and it gets our weekend started off on a good foot. 
 
“Hopefully, we can keep this momentum up and keep it going and see what we have for them on Sunday.”
 
Blaney enters the Phoenix weekend sixth in the standings, 22 points away from a berth in the final round of the playoffs, which will be the premier event at next week’s Ford Championship Weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
 
He said it’s possible to make the final playoff round on points, but he likely needs a win to be in.
 
 “You never know what can happen,” he said. “If you go and you get a good couple stages in, you and the 11 [Denny Hamlin] or the 2 [Brad Keselowski] don’t have very good stages, you might be right there. 
 
“You never know how it’s going to be. You just kind of assume those two cars are in the positions they are for a reason – because they run up front every single week.  You just kind of realize the situation that you’re in and where they’re running, but it is possible to point our way in, but I’m not really banking on that.  
 
 “That’s going to be really tough to do, along with winning the race.  They’re both going to be tough, but the points thing is not out of the question.”
 
Blaney pointed out that the immediate challenge is working on the SKF/Quick Lane Fusion in Saturday’s practice to prepare it for Sunday’s race.

 “It was really cool outside when we qualified here tonight, and it will be really hot on Sunday,” he said. “We usually see long green-flag runs here and try to keep everything cool – brakes and tires and things like that.  
 
“That’s kind of the opposite of what you want to do in qualifying. You’re trying to get everything in one lap, so we’ll see where our car is.  

 “I thought we were OK today in race trim. I didn’t think we were great, but we’ll have all of tomorrow to try to get that a little bit better. But just trying to keep the car under you on long runs, that’s what we always see here and I felt like that’s kind of been a struggle for us and hopefully we can change that come Sunday.”
  
The Can-Am 500 is set to get the green flag just after 12:30 p.m. (2:30 Eastern) with TV coverage on NBC.

Ryan Blaney will start on the pole at Phoenix Raceway for the Can-Am 500 on Sunday. Blaney, piloting the No. 21 Ford for Wood Brothers Racing, posted a 26.098, 137.942 mph to score his second career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series pole.

Blaney enters the weekend in a must-win situation in order to make the Final Four at Homestead-Miami Speedway next week. The young racer sits 17 Playoff points behind Brad Keselowski for that final spot.

Blaney’s earlier pole came in May at Kansas Speedway. The No. 21 Ford led the field for 83 of the 267 circuits and went on to finish fourth. In addition to his win at Pocono Raceway, Blaney holds four top five and 14 top 10 finishes through 34 races in 2017.

Denny Hamlin, another driver looking to get into the Final Four at Homestead-Miami Speedway, will start beside Blaney in the No. 11 FedEx Toyota. Hamlin posted a 26.099, 137.936 mph lap in the final round of knockout qualifying.

The Virginia native enters the weekend sitting 12 Playoff points behind Brad Keselowski.

Hamlin comes into Phoenix with two victories, 15 top five and 21 top 10 finishes.

Kyle Larson will round out the top-three starters on Sunday. Larson, the highest qualifying non-playoff driver, posted a 26.101, 137.926 mph to earn the third-place starting spot.

Playoff drivers Martin Truex Jr. and Chase Elliott will round out the top-five drivers on Sunday.

Playoff drivers further back inside the top 10 include Kevin Harvick in sixth and Kyle Busch in eighth. Jimmie Johnson, who will be starting 12th, and Brad Keselowski, in 16th, are the only two Playoff contenders that will start the Can-Am 500 outside the top 10.

There were no on-track incidents throughout the three rounds of knockout qualifying.

With 40 drivers appearing on the weekend entry list, there were no DNQs.

Ryan Blaney sped to the second Monster Energy NASCAR Cup pole position of the season and of his career this evening at Phoenix Raceway.

Blaney’s drove his SKF/Quick Lane Ford Fusion to qualifying laps of 137.122 mph, 137.573 mph and 137.942 mph and will pace the field to the green flag for Sunday’s Can-Am 500.

“We got better each round, which is all you can ask for really,” Blaney said. “I thought the last round was our best. We ran our fastest time and it was enough. That says something strong about this team. I think we started second here in the spring and to back that up and better it at a big weekend like this, where we have to perform well, that’s definitely encouraging and it gets our weekend started off on a good foot. Hopefully, we can keep this momentum up and keep it going and see what we have for them on Sunday.”

This is the fourth time this season that Blaney will start on the front row. It’s his eighth top-five start of the 2017 season.

Blaney still looks at Sunday’s race as a must-win situation.

“Our mindset coming into this weekend was really trying to win the race and sitting on the pole my mindset doesn’t change,” Blaney said. “I still want to go try to win the race, so that’s the mindset we’ve had all week and hopefully we can keep that and I think that’s our goal.”

Asked what it will take to lead the race, Blaney responded, “Honestly, I don’t really know. I’ve never really had the best races here. We’ve had moments of greatness here and then most of the moments we haven’t been fantastic here.”

The challenge, he said, is switching from qualifying trim in cool temperatures to race trim in higher temperatures.

“It’s completely different,” he explained. “One is q-trim and two it was really cool outside when we qualified here tonight and it will be really hot on Sunday. Just trying to make your car be able to last long. We usually see long green flag runs here and try to keep everything cool – brakes and tires and things like that.

“I thought we were okay today in race trim (during practice), he continued. “I didn’t think we were great, but we’ll have all of tomorrow to try to get that a little bit better. But just trying to keep the car under you on long runs, that’s what we always see here and I felt like that’s kind of been a struggle for us and hopefully we can change that come Sunday.”

A key benefit of winning the pole is having the first pit box selection.

“I think it’s really important no matter where you go,” Blaney said. “Here, it’s kind of nice to have this number one pit stall because you’ve got the curved ending to the pit road. That’s kind of nice to have so you don’t have to watch cars coming out of their stall if you’re pitted way back here, and maybe here you can kind of see which cars do two tires and no tires if they’re really far down pit road. Our spotter can relay that to my crew chief before we even get to our stall and they can make an audible call or whatever.  It’s important anywhere.  I don’t really think this place is more important than anywhere else to have the first pit stall.”

In addition to being Blaney’s second career pole, today’s effort gives Wood Brothers Racing its 118th pole. Should he win Sunday’s race, it will be the Wood Brothers’ 100th in addition to putting Blaney in the Championship Four at Homestead.
