Pursley, Resident Expert at Miller
#nascar #knwest

Greg Pursley is the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West resident expert when it comes to Miller Motorsports Park -- he has three wins in five starts at the 2.2-mile road course. The 2011 series champion has an average finish of 1.8 in his five starts at Miller.

His worst finish was fourth in 2009 and his three consecutive wins from 2010 to 2012 make him one of only 11 drivers in series history to accomplish that feat at any track. Pursley was the runner-up finisher in last year's event at Miller Motorsports Park.

A controversial call that black-flagged Pursley on final restart of the last K&N Pro Series event narrowed his lead margin to fifteen points over second place Dylan Lupton. Then the race leader, Greg Pursley was penalized for jumping the restart. Lupton inherited the win. With three races remaining in the 2014 season Pursley / Lupton battle should be exciting to witness.

This will mark the eighth annual visit by the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West to Miller Motorsports Park. The first four events were run on the 3.048-mile outer course. Subsequent series races have been run on the 2.2-mile course.

The new format consists of rounds:

THE ROUNDS


Challenger Round: The 16 drivers will battle at Chicagoland Speedway, New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Dover International Speedway for the 12 spots available in the next round (Contender).

After this round, each advancing driver will be reset to 3,000 points.

Contender Round: The 12 drivers will battle at Kansas Speedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway for the eight spots available in the next round (Eliminator). A win at any of the three races equals advancement into the next round. The rest of the field of eight will be determined by order of points scored in the three races. After this round, each advancing driver will be reset to 4,000 points.

Eliminator Round: The eight drivers will battle at Martinsville Speedway, Texas Motor Speedway and Phoenix International Raceway for the four spots available in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship. A win at any of the three races equals advancement into the next round. The rest of the field of four will be determined by order of points scored in the three races.

When it comes right down to the nuts and bolts; NASCAR Race Mom will have to join the Jr. Nation and pick Dale Earnhardt Jr. as the highest finisher among the four finalists at Homestead-Miami Speedway to become the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion.

This 2014 season is Earnhardt’s fifteenth Cup Campaign, and he still does not have his first Sprint Cup championship. However, with three wins this season (his best since 2006) and an apparently solid relationship with girlfriend Amy Reimann, Ralph Dale Earnhardt Jr., who will celebrate his fortieth birthday on October 10th,  will hopefully realize this goal this year.
