NASCAR Race Today, RFK Racing on a roll again with a 1-2 finish courtesy of Chris Buescher’s win while several others miss out either way but only one has secured the 16th & final Playoffs spot at Daytona

The regular season leg of the 2023 NASCAR Cup Season has came to a wild close today where we saw a few “Big One” dramas through the wall, while others have made it home – although one came out lucky to seal the 16th & final Playoffs berth – at the big tracks of Daytona. It’s great to see two Roush Fenway Keselowski cars dominating once again off the back from the end of Stage 2 & last stage, with Chris Buescher (No.17 Ford) on red hot form after his 3rd race win of 2023 ahead of team-mate & co-owner Brad K (No.6 Ford – S2 winner) who finished 2nd.

Now some are gutted not to get that win whereas others were less fortunate when it comes to wrecks on what has been a last-minute situation to get inside the 16-man Playoffs bubble. But as said, there can only be one lucky person who will be getting a Playoffs lifeline going into next weekend’s Labor Day round at Darlington & his name is Bubba Wallace (No.23 Toyota for 23XI Racing). He too may have been stuck through the middle of the field after a great start to the night (6th in Stage 1), but some persistence from others dropping out later on saw him finish not far from the Top 10 mark in 12th spot.

What a moment from Bubba to take part in his first Playoffs year since joining 23XI two years ago. Plus, shoutout to the two Spire Chevy cars finishing together in 10th & 11th from the back by Corey LaJoie (No.7) & Ty Dillon (No.77) – even though both of them were not far from the front row places. And Martin Truex Jr. is your regular-season champion (No.19 Toyota for JGR) despite finishing in 24th. Let’s bring on the Playoffs now where there’s 10 races left starting with the 3 x Round of 16.
