NASCAR Sets 2018 Playoff Field

NASCAR fans had to wait one day longer following a rain delay at the Brickyard 400, but the 2018 playoff field is finally locked in with 16 drivers competing for the championship.

Following the surprising championship by Martin Truex Jr. (whose Furniture Row Racing is shutting down after this season) it truly is a championship that’s up for grabs by any driver competing, as he didn’t secure his until the final race of the season. That being said, let’s look at the field.

1) Kyle Busch – Easy to hate, but an easy pick to win it all given his dominate season to date
2) Kevin Harvick – 7 wins this season have “Happy” Harvick right in Kyle’s rearview
3) Martin Truex Jr. – Defending champ is looking to prove 2017 was no accident
4) Brad Keselowski – Momentum is on his side with two straight wins to finish out the “regular” season
5) Clint Bowyer – Won at Martinsville to secure his spot following a winless 190 races
6) Joey Logano – No flash, no drama, but consistency and my pick to win the championship
7) Kurt Busch – GMG alum, Kurt Busch is happily in the middle of the pack
8) Chase Elliott – Hendrick backing and “Awesome” Bill’s DNA, a deep run by Chase is likely
9) Ryan Blaney – In his second consecutive playoff appearance Blaney looks to best his 9th place
10) Erik Jones – A first playoff appearance by a young driver who had a strong summer
11) Austin Dillon – Dillon secured his spot early with the 2018 Daytona 500 win
12) Kyle Larson – From a four win 2017 to zero in 2018 Larson is hoping for playoff success
13) Denny Hamlin – His 12th playoff appearance Hamlin has finished 2nd, but seeks the championship
14) Aric Almirola – In just his second appearance momentum is slow, but Stewart-Haas knows how to win
15) Jimmie Johnson – Anyone else you’d count out with a winless 2018, but JJ could find a way
16) Alex Bowman – First season, first playoff, Bowman could have the most relaxed playoff run as any finish is a career best and that could give him an edge
