Two legendary numbers – the 43 and the 2 – have won the last two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at Daytona and Loudon.
The formation of the Race Team Alliance occurred the Monday after Daytona, quite interesting timing given Brian France’s midseason State of the Sport address on Saturday. There’s been a lot of discussion about the RTA and the impact it may have going forward in the days since.
Meanwhile for Keselowski, his dominant win got resigned to the back burner after the Joey Logano/Morgan Shepherd accident. Keselowski is in his best form since his 2012 championship run, and he may actually be running better now in the at any times white, yellow, or red deuce than he did two years ago.
Winning was seemingly the only story earlier this year, so it’s been interesting to see the wins not be front and center lately.
A bit unfortunate for these two, so we take a bit of time this Tuesday to give them their proper appreciation.
