Com­pelling ques­tions ... and maybe a few ac­tual an­swers

Now you’re talk­ing sym­me­try?

Yes, sym­me­try. Ev­ery­thing just might be lin­ing up in the proper or­der for the con­clu­sion of the 2018 Cup Se­ries sea­son. Re­mem­ber, on three dif­fer­ent oc­ca­sions this year, a driver put to­gether a three-race win streak. Kevin Har­vick did it be­gin­ning in Week 2. Kyle Busch fol­lowed in spring. And Brad Ke­selowski had his own hat trick start­ing in early Septem­ber. It’d be fit­ting to end the year with an­other.

You’re as­sum­ing Har­vick wins Phoenix?

He has a bit of a track record there, you know. Nine of his 45 ca­reer wins have come at Phoenix, in­clud­ing this past March, when he capped his three-race streak. If he does it again, he goes to Home­stead with a chance at an­other three-peat and, of course, the cham­pi­onship. To help his cause, let’s as­sume Joey Logano would be a lit­tle more care­ful around a guy like Har­vick.
