After Kurt Busch became the 12th race winner of the 2021 season, in the playoffs held in Atlanta last week, the NASCAR driver who did not win saw a glimmer of hope. Chase Elliott won his first championship since the Tour of the Americas.
Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway provided the 13th unique winner with the opportunity to automatically get a seat in the playoffs; but since Brad Keselovsky and Kyle Busch have separated Since winning in Talladega and Kansas on April 25 and May 2, NASCAR has not seen a consecutive first-time winner this season.
In other words, there are five more games, including Sunday, to fill the four winners of the 16-car playoffs. The time before the start of the playoffs is getting shorter and shorter. From now on, every driver who has not won will face greater pressure to enter the playoffs.
Denny Hamlin is the person in this group most likely to win their first victory on Sunday. Regular season points leader-he is 10 points more than four-time champion Kyle Larsen- still Despite being in the top five 11 times and the top 10 14 times, he has not won a game this season. But he has achieved success at NHMS, including 3 victories and 6 runner-ups.
