    New winner or one of the past winners?
    Will one of the guys badly needing a win get into the "play-offs"?

    Jr's last whoo-rah, can he break out of his dull drums and be a hero for his fans?

    Will Joey finally get that replacement win?

    How about Clint Bowyer? Can he muster up a great finish and get into the show?

    Or what about Chase Elliott? Is this his moment to shine?

    Richmond might be Junior's last chance to get in the playoffs. Either by winning the race or by getting placed in there externally because the actual winner got "cucumbered."

    According to the "Drunken Brian France" Twitter account, it has been (as of this post) 1792 days since Bowyer's last win. I doubt Richmond will end the losing streak.

    Joey might get the replacement win, but he might just get it cucumbered again after post-race inspection. What happens if that happens?

    Personally, I'd like to see Erik Jones make it, he's got a lot of talent, and it would definitely push Furniture Row Racing to the label of "top tier."

    Started watching and when it was obvious that the Toyota crowd was going to stink it up again I went to Netflix.
