It will be another hot sticky day in Nashville, Temperature at race time will be 91 degrees with a heat index approaching triple digits. Stay hydrated if you are at the track.
Drivers expressed concerns about the heat in the cars yesterday. Apparently cooling shirts will not be used as of now. I’m not sure why. If everyone used them the wieght disadvantage is neutralized.
Can Scott McLaughlin win from the pole again? he is the only driver to do so this year. The driver starting second has woin seven times in 2022. Team Penske has looked strong all weekend. I’m going with Josef Newgarden today. His strategy during the Fast Six yesterday tells me that team is on to something.
From Last Night
McLaughlin on Music City Pole
Marcus Ericsson won from 18th last year, and he starts there again today. I don’t think this race will be as chaotic as the 2021 race to allow him to move that far forward. again.
