Whoever came up with the saying it’s not how you start but how you finish probably wasn’t a NASCAR driver. As the chase begins this week in New Hampshire, almost all the drivers admit that momentum is everything. During the six previous seasons, the first chase race has been held at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. In every event, the race winner was also one of the top 12 chase contenders.
By building up a points lead early, there’s room for mistakes later on. The drivers and teams know it’s important to get off to a strong start if they want to win the championship, and that’s reflected in their New Hampshire performance.
This week’s video preview features comments fro Greg Biffle, Jeff Gordon, Jimmy Johnson, Kyle Bush, and Tony Stewart.
