Sunday’s race marks the end of an era as Jimmie Johnson and crew chief Chad Knaus will part ways after 17 decades. During that span, this duo won more than 80 races and 7 championships. They’ve won at every major track and left their mark on the game that will never be matched . That said, Knaus will proceed over to be the crew leader for William Byron and Johnson will partner with Kevin Meendering at 2019. Can his winless streak break and earn his first win of 2018?
Truex Going after Logano
If Martin Truex Jr. and Joey Logano aren’t in contention for the championship late in the race on Sunday, watch out for retaliation by Truex. In Martinsville, a couple weeks ago, Logano bumped Truex out of how to win the racewhile Martin finished 3rd. It was a movement that drew the ire of this 78 team. Truex has said he will get retaliation when the opportunity presents itself.
