Head to Texas the first weekend of November for a thrilling race on the road to the playoffs. The winner gets a trophy that looks like - what else? - a cowboy hat on top of a piston. Traditionally, the winner also dons a cowboy hat and fires a few six-shooters in the air at the end. The race was featured in Talladega Nights (fun fact: they didn’t actually shoot it in Texas, though - they filmed the racing scenes at the identically-shaped Charlotte Motor Speedway and just painted the wall to look like Texas). Kevin Harvick won in 2018...and the year before that...who will win this year?
