Toyota teams, particularly MWR, look to turn it around

To say that 2014 was a year of struggle for the Toyota teams, I believe would be an understatement. The numbers are glaring. In 2013, fve different Toyota Sprint Cup drivers won 14 races among them. Well, to be fair one driver, Matt Kenseth, won seven of those 14. Unfortunately, this season the Toyotas simply weren't that dominant. They only won two races -- and taking it a step...

Kevin Harvick became the second consecutive driver in his first season with a new team to reach the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, as Matt Kenseth had done the same the year before, although Harvick triumphed while Kenseth finished second to Jimmie Johnson. It is somewhat counterintuitive for drivers with new teams to strongly compete […]
