SPEED FREAKS

A cou­ple ques­tions we had to ask — our­selves

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

Any chance a Gibbs team won’t win the cham­pi­onship this year?

GODSPEAK: I picked Martin Truex Jr., so he’s a first cousin of the Gibbs team. Does that count?

KEN’S CALL: Any­thing can hap­pen with the cur­rent sys­tem, but I wouldn’t be sur­prised to see three Gibbs cars among the four finalists at Homestead.

Is Kyle Busch’s Xfin­ity Se­ries dom­i­nance not given enough credit?

GODSPEAK: Most Cup driv­ers take Satur­days off, so give Busch credit for stay­ing in race mode through the en­tire week­end.

KEN’S CALL: Kyle’s Xfin­ity win per­cent­age is .257; Dale Earn­hardt’s was .154; Mark Martin’s was .208. He prob­a­bly de­serves an oc­ca­sional back-pat on Satur­days.

Odds that this week will be Jeff Gor­don’s fi­nal NASCAR race?

GODSPEAK: This won’t be the last time we see Mr. Gor­don be­hind the wheel of a race car. No sir.

KEN’S CALL: You know, the Rolex 24 is run un­der the NASCAR flag, so tech­ni­cally, I guess he’ll race again.
