So here we go, the chase is on. 8 Chevrolets, 5 Toyotas, and 3 Fords are set to battle it out for the next 10 weeks for the Sprint Cup title.
Notice I didn’t break it down by driver but instead by manufacturer. Let me tell you why. I believe that the title will come down to two manufacurers. Chevrolet and Toyota will be throwing everything they have at the title. Let me break it down a little further. Chevrolet will be putting most of its support behind Jimmie Johnson, Chase Elliot, Jamie McMurray, and Kyle Larson. Sorry Harvick and Kurt Busch, your teams move to Ford will prove to hurt you in the chase. You are leaving Chevy and Ford can’t help yet!
The Five Toyotas have been the class of the field this year with 11 of the 26 wins. You can’t discount that! They have been dominant and there is no reason to believe they won’t continue to be strong in the chase.
Sonwhat will happen? Here’s my prediction. Jimmie Johnson will win this weekend at Chicago, close behind will be Kyle Larson in 2nd and Chase Elliot in 3rd. Martin Truex will be the highest finishing Toyota in 5th. NASCAR media will be going crazy. Did they see the Chevy’s coming? No, but now they will.
Just a guess!
