We’re already seven races through the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season and after Kyle Busch’s victory Saturday night at Texas Motor Speedway, a Toyota or Chevrolet engined car has won six of the seven events. With all the attention this year going towards the rivalries between Denny Hamlin vs. Joey Logano or Logano vs. Tony Stewart and Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. for the title, you may have overlooked the fact that three Fords sit in the top five of the standings. Johnson and Busch have won four of the seven races this season including the last three, but Brad Keselowski, Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards sit in a good spot heading into the next race at Kansas. Keselowski is sitting only nine points behind points leader Johnson right now despite not reaching victory lane in 2013. He has four Top fives and six top 10′s and has consistently been a threat up front every race. Like Keselowski, Biffle hasn’t reached victory lane yet in ’13 either and he only has one top five. The Biff does have four top 10′s though and has been running very well as of late including a top five Saturday night. He’s 30 points behind Johnson for the points lead and is fourth in the standings. Biffle’s teammate Edwards is the lone Ford driver to reach victory lane this year as he did so in the second race of the season in the Subway Fresh Fit 500 at Phoenix International Raceway. He’s fifth in the standings and 35 points out and can thank a great team effort by his No. 99 Fastenal Ford crew Saturday night to help him salvage what could be a bad night to a top five. The fourth place finish was Edwards’ fourth of the season and fourth top 10 as well. As we get deeper and deeper in the season, despite the lack of victories, Ford may be consistently the best engine manufacturer.
