Advantage Austin Dillon?
As the Round of 12 begins this weekend who has the best advantage to advance to the Round of 8?
The Round of 12 begins this weekend for the NASCAR Cup Series. Who has the best advantage this round might be surprising. When you think of who might have the advantage for the Round of 12 the obvious names are Harvick and Hamlin, but they also could get through the round alone on playoff points, unless they somehow finish last in all three races. But who else could have an advantage this round? Well, looking at the the results from earlier this year, Austin Dillon might have the best advantage going into this round of the playoffs. Dillon is coming off two top 4 finishes and a 12th place at Bristol last week. Dillon definitely has momentum on his side. He finished 4th in February at Las Vegas and even though his finish at Talladega earlier this year was 39th due to an accident we know Dillon is always strong at the Superspeedways. Look for Dillon to continue his momentum into the next few races and be a dark horse pick to make it to the Round of 8.
