From time to time I like to throw together some quick hits and stats that I find interesting. Thought I might throw that together tonight, so here we go.

The West Coast Swing for NASCAR has now come to an end. From what I have seen, it is all about Kevin Harvick. Harvick took two of the three races on the swing to the left coast. I really thought that Harvick was going to take the three races out there. It did not happen, and in the end, although we never really saw him all day long, Brad Keselowski ended up taking the win at the Auto Club Speedway.
This week at Las Vegas, it looked like Dale Earnhardt Jr. had the win. Steve Letarte made a call to fuel early and try to make it to the end of the race on a thin margin of fuel. Unfortunately for Jr. there was just not enough fuel in the tank to take the win. Maybe a quarter of a cup more fuel in the tank, and Twitter’s servers would be burning up with tweets about Jr. winning his second race of the season. Instead Jr. gets his second second place finish of the season. Not a bad average though for the 88 crew, they are showing they are a true contender each week.
