As the NASCAR Cup Series drives towards the playoffs, we wanted to take a quick moment to recognize the Ford Performance Team for an incredible season so far.
After 20 starts, Ford represents 5 of the top 10 drivers for total points, including:
- Kevin Harvick
- Brad Keselowski
- Ryan Blaney
- Joey Logano
- Aric Almirola
Coming behind Ford with 3 drivers in the top 10 is Toyota, followed by Chevy with 2. Tomorrow.io started working with the Ford Performance team this season to help with race strategy and real-time decisioning based on the impact of the weather.
Weather has a huge impact on race strategy, including things like:
- Knowing how the car will handle
- When to change tires
- When to increase speeds
- When there will be a delay
- How the track conditions will change during the race
With 6 races to go, we’ll be cheering on the Ford team with a big push towards the playoffs!
