Just Another Predictable Win for the Penske Guys, Right?

Team owner Roger Penske may never have doubted it, but Ryan Blaney’s championship victory at the Phoenix Raceway on November 5th was a testament to his perseverance. The win marks his first NASCAR Cup Series championship and the second consecutive for Team Penske. Citing triumph over Kyle Larson in the last 20-25 laps as “proof in the pudding,” Penske acknowledges this milestone as a natural progression in Blaney’s career, beginning with his first win for Wood Brothers Racing in 2017.

Meanwhile, Denny Hamlin, another NASCAR Cup Series regular, faces a different challenge. He’s now wearing a soft brace after injuring his shoulder a week before the Oct. 15 Las Vegas Playoff race. While Hamlin is optimistic about his recovery, his participation in the upcoming Feb. 4 non-points Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum remains uncertain.

In other news, Kevin Harvick, now retired from full-time NASCAR Cup Series racing, is embarking on an exciting new project. Kern County Raceway, in Harvick’s native Bakersfield, California, will soon reopen as Kevin Harvick’s Kern Raceway.

Lastly, Ty Gibbs doesn’t feel delighted despite earning Rookie of the Year and achieving several top finishes in his debut season. The 21-year-old grandson of team owner Joe Gibbs is already setting his sights on improvement and victory in his future NASCAR career.
