It’s back to business for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Sunday. After the last off-weekend of the season, the series heads to one of the premier tracks on the circuit, the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway, for the Crown Royal Curtiss Shaver 400 at the Brickyard. While every race pays the same amount of points, winning at Indy carries a little more special meaning than other stops.
As for narrowing down a favorite this week, you need to start with Chevy drivers. Chevrolet has a nine-race win streak that began in 2003. That’s the longest current streak at any track on the NASCAR Sprint Cup schedule.
The last two visits to Indy have produced surprise winners. It could again be anyone’s race to win, but there have been multiple winners and the favorites this week are among those starting with Jeff Gordon. MORE>>>
