The unfortunate accident that took place on the International Raceway on Sunday afternoon was no trick or stunt attempted to woo NASCAR audience but real eventually. Many of the Jimmie Johnson fans faced hard time in absorbing the news of the incident during Chase race and Jimmie’s going against the wall.
The spectacle was so similar to the fights between football players that any football follower will find it enticing. It’s like the fight taking place between the teams of Jeff Gordon and Clint Bowyer. One person that benefitted the most from the incident was Kevin Harvick as he got the chance to be part of victory lane in almost more than one year. The victory came for Harvick at a time when reports of his leaving Richard Childress Racing in 2014 were also confirmed.
As the event settled down Brad Keselowski left Phoenix with as much as 20 points in lead over Johnson in Sprint Cup rankings. Now both the drivers will drive against each other for the top spot next week which happens to be the Final event of the season. The location for this race is Homestead-Miami Speedway.
