Mon, 11 Aug 2014 07:56:00 EDT

The Sprint Cup series makes its second visit to Michigan on Sunday, and that track may be the last best shot for Matt Kenseth and Greg Biffle to secure a spot in the 'Chase'. Those two and Carl Edwards have felt right at home at Michigan during (or after) their days at Roush Fenway Racing, being the top 3 drivers here in terms of average finishing position among active Sprint Cup veterans.

A.J. Allmendinger survived a bruising battle with road course ace Marcos Ambrose and emerged with a very popular victory in the Cheez-It 335 at Watkins Glen on Sunday. Allmendinger's first-ever Sprint Cup win qualifies him for the postseason 'Chase', and the win also marks the first time that the JTG-Daugherty racing team got to visit Victory Lane. Jeff Gordon started on the pole and clearly had the car to beat, leading the first 29 laps, but an electrical issue took four laps to diagnose and took Gordon out of contention; he lost the points lead to Dale Earnhardt, Jr. as a result.

Tony Stewart and Marcos Ambrose both need a win in order to get into the 'Chase' and Sunday's race at Watkins Glen represents the best chance to get the win that will salvage their seasons. Nobody has won more at the Glen in Sprint Cup than Stewart (5 times), and Ambrose has 1 win and 5 top-5 finishes in 6 career starts here. Last year might have been a second win -- Ambrose qualified on the pole and led a race-high 51 laps -- but he crashed late in the event and wound up 31st.

It's been 10 years since Dale Earnhardt, Jr. had more than one win in a Sprint Cup season, and now he has two just at Pocono in 2004 and three for the year. Earnhardt and crew chief Steve Letarte used a fuel strategy that worked to perfection at Pocono, but the #88 had to withstand a charge from Kevin Harvick -- who not only rebounded from a pit road speeding penalty, he suffered some damage in the "big one", a Talladega-like accident on lap 118 which involved over a dozen cars.

The Sprint Cup series makes its second visit of 2014 to Pocono Raceway on Sunday, where Hendrick Motorsports has won the last 4 races with 4 different drivers. Greg Biffle was the last Ford driver to win here (August, 2010) and he could use an encore in order to qualify for the 'Chase'. Biffle, winless and 17th in the points at this time, would be on the outside looking in if the Sprint Cup regular season ended today.

Jeff Gordon became the first NASCAR Sprint Cup driver to win five times at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, with a dominant performance in the John Wayne Walding 400. Gordon, hardly known for his successful restarts, blew past teammate Kasey Kahne when the green flag dropped on lap 144 and sailed away from there to a 2.3 second victory. Kevin Harvick qualified on the pole and was Gordon's primary competitor most of the day, but the #4 team's decision to take four new tires on their final pit stop proved to be unsuccessful, as Harvick was not able to make up ground on the cars in front of him (all of them on older tires) and he settled for an eighth-place finish.

Chevrolet has won the last 11 races at Indianapolis, and one Chevy driver who would like to continue the streak is 2-time Brickyard winner Tony Stewart. Currently 19th in the points and with zero wins in 2014, the Indiana native desperately needs a victory -- something he has never gone an entire Sprint Cup season without -- in order to qualify for a spot in the 'Chase'. If Bobby Labonte and Jeff Burton do not participate in this year's race, that will leave Jeff Gordon as the only driver to make all 21 Sprint Cup races at Indianapolis.

Brad Keselowski's consistent four-tire changes on pitstops enabled him to repeatedly tear through the field during Sunday's Camping World RV Sales 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, where he completed the weekend sweep after having won the NASCAR Nationwide Series race here on Saturday. By attempting to rely on fuel strategy, Denny Hamlin and Jeff Gordon almost denied Keselowski the win, but their tactics failed (Hamlin had to pit; Gordon ran out of gas) although Kyle Busch tried the same plan and nearly made it work.

(Posted by NASCARgirl01) Coming off his recent top ten finishes in Road America and Daytona last weekend (as long with being one of the four in the Dash for Cash in New Hampshire), Jeremy Clements has been getting a lot of attention. Every single bit of that attention is well deserved. He and his family have taken their own team from ARCA into a part time Nationwide series deal and turned it into a full time team. It has been an uphill battle all of the way, spurred on by Jeremy's talent behind the wheel and the support of sponsors that see the potential he has. After so much time, effort and work put in both at their Spartanburg, SC race shop and each week at the track, it is great to see it all paying off for them.

Jeff Burton is scheduled to return to Sprint Cup racing this weekend at Loudon, a track where he leads all drivers with 4 career wins and where he once (in 2000) dominated to such an extent that he led all 300 laps. Burton has participated in only one race so far in 2014, but he has a chance to make it 4 wins in a row for his manufacturer if he can take the checkered flag in the #66 Toyota.

Aric Almirola took the Petty Motorsports Ford to Victory Lane at Daytona, at the same track and on the same weekend that Richard Petty achieved his 200th and final NASCAR win 30 years earlier. In an event postponed one day and then truncated to 112 laps due to rain, Almirola recorded the first win of his Sprint Cup career and probably assured himself a spot in this year's 'Chase' -- something only one other Richard Petty Motorsports driver has ever done (Kasey Kahne in 2009).

(Posted by NASCARgirl01) Kentucky Speedway has rapidly been moving up my list of favorite tracks. The setup of the infield, ease of traffic moving in and out of the track and in general being very fan friendly - it's no real wonder why that's the case. I was privileged to be one of the people at the races this weekend, even seeing it from a different perspective than I had before. And given that, there are some things that presented themselves to my attention that anyone watching at home would have easily missed.

Anything can happen at restrictor plate tracks, which often find a first-time winner in Victory Lane when the smoke clears. If you're looking for a sleeper to pick this week, the Coke Zero 400 just might be the first career win for Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. The 26-year-old driver is winless in 58 Sprint Cup starts but he has the best average finish at this track of any driver in the series (12.5), and he has improved each time out.

Trevor Bayne, Stenhouse's future full-time teammate at Roush Fenway Racing, on the other hand has regressed here since scoring a huge but very popular upset in the 2011 Daytona 500. In six races at Daytona since that win, Bayne's top result is 20th and he has finished on the lead lap only once.

Penske Racing drivers Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano put on quite a display this weekend at Kentucky Speedway, first by capturing the top two qualifying positions on Friday and then by combining to lead 236 of the 267 laps in Saturday's Quaker State 400. Although Logano had engine trouble late in the race, Keselowski rocketed past Kyle Busch during the final 48-lap green flag run to the finish and recorded his second victory of the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup season. Hendrick Motorsports had another solid day, placing all four of its drivers in the top ten, led by Dale Earnhardt Jr., who finished fifth.

The Sprint Cup Series makes its fourth visit to Kentucky Speedway, with both Ford and Chevrolet still looking to get the winners' circle for the first time. Joe Gibbs Toyotas have won here twice but one Chevy driver stands out as the most likely to get his manufacturer on the board: Jimmie Johnson led 182 laps in the 2013 race, has top-10 finishes in all 3 races at Kentucky, and leads all drivers with a Driver Rating of 125.9 which means he's generally had a car capable of running out front. Defending race champion Matt Kenseth looks to rebound from a hard crash at Sonoma and still needs to find that elusive first win of 2014.

Carl Edwards, helped by a two-tire change on a pit stop to get track position, won for the first time in his NASCAR Sprint Cup career on a road course. The victory, his second of the 2014 season, locks Edwards into the 'Chase' for the championship which begins in September. Jeff Gordon finished second and nearly got to Edwards on the final turn of the last lap of Sunday's race, but fell just short. Kevin Harvick seemed to have the car to beat (23 laps led) but was caught up in an accident on lap 82 and settled for a 20th place finish.

When Alex Tagliani had to pit for fuel near the end of the Gardner Denver 200 on Saturday -- and restart in the middle of the pack with only two laps of racing to go -- it looked like Brendan Gaughan might cruise to victory if he could hold off Chase Elliott and Johnny O'Connell. Those two drivers put up a strong fight to no avail, but Tagliani roared through the field like a man possessed and nearly achieved a miraculous comeback. But Gaughan took the checkered flag, winning for the first time ever in the Nationwide Series and for the first time in a NASCAR race since 2003 when he won six times in the Craftsman Truck Series.

text What You Might Have Missed: Michigan Edition
Tue, 17 Jun 2014 17:54:00 EDT

(Posted by NASCARgirl01) It was another great weekend stocked full of racing from start to finish. Most of the action centered around Michigan Int'l Speedway as they played host to ARCA, Nationwide and Sprint Cup. There were a lot of major storylines over the weekend, but as those consumed the majority of the media's attention, I once more noticed a lot of things that fell through the cracks.

Several drivers who have never won at Sonoma will be trying for win #1 on Sunday -- the top candidates include road course ace Marcos Ambrose, who has won twice at Watkins Glen but never at Sonoma despite 5 top-10 finishes in 6 starts here. Kevin Harvick has been a factor in nearly every race this season, and is generally competitive at Sonoma but has never been to Victory Lane. Matt Kenseth still needs a win to solidify his 'Chase' chances, but he is hardly a road racing specialist with no top-5 finishes in his Sprint Cup career at either Sonoma or the Glen (best career finish: 8th).

Jimmie Johnson won for the third time in the last four NASCAR Sprint Cup events, visiting Victory Lane at Michigan International Speedway for the first time in his career on Sunday. Johnson's Hendrick Motorsports teammates all finished in the top seven as well, a particularly impressive performance by Kasey Kahne as he rebounded from an early incident with rookie Kyle Larson, who also came back nicely to finish in 9th place.

text What You Might Have Missed: Pocono Edition
Thu, 12 Jun 2014 06:56:00 EDT

(Posted by NASCARgirl01) Our sport of auto racing is a complex, all-encompassing thing and as such it's easy to miss a thing or two while trying to keep it up with it all. From Sprint Cup to ARCA or Truck and IndyCar - or even things that happen away from the track. This past race weekend seemed to yield even more of that than normal--and that only includes the things I caught! ...

If you're looking for drivers who have done the best at Michigan during their Sprint Cup careers, you'd do well to select a current (Biffle, Edwards) or former (Kenseth) Roush Racing driver. Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth and Greg Biffle are the top three drivers in average finish at Michigan, and they consistently run near the front. Could Sunday's Quicken Loans 400 be the race where Matt Kenseth finally gets his first win of 2014?

Dale Earnhardt, Jr. joined Hendrick Motorsports teammates Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon and Kasey Kahne as winners of the last four Sprint Cup races at Pocono when he held off Brad Keselowski and took the checkered flag in Sunday's Pocono 400. The victory, Earnhardt's second of the 2014 season, gives him a multi-win season for the first time since 2004 and guarantees him a spot in this year's 'Chase'.

text Pay More Attention to Us, ESPN!
Tue, 3 Jun 2014 16:35:00 EDT

(Posted by NASCARgirl01) During the Nationwide series TV coverage on Saturday, I noticed a somewhat disturbing trend, perhaps you noticed it too. It started during qualifying when the top 24 were the only ones shown at any point - and they never made it past the top 20 when showing the lineup at the end of coverage. Later, in the race, they referenced Regan Smith running 'mid-pack'. He was 9th. So I am now convinced that ESPN believes there are only 20-24 cars in the Nationwide series. That's really a pity because there are so many amazing people driving for teams in the second half of the field and too often we don't get to hear about them or learn who they are. It seems like so often the only way to get to know them and what they think is through securing a garage pass (something not many fans get to experience) and talking to them for yourself...

Hendrick Motorsports will try to make it 4 in a row at Pocono on Sunday, with Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and Kasey Kahne having won the last 3 Sprint Cup events here. Points leader Matt Kenseth is the only winless driver in the top 9 in the standings, and Pocono is a track where he has never won in 28 career starts. Only at Martinsville does he have a lengthier winless record (29 starts).

Jimmie Johnson followed up his Charlotte win a week ago with a victory at Dover in the FedEx 400 -- his ninth at that track -- and in the process became the all-time Sprint Cup lap leader at Dover as well. Jeff Gordon had a top-5 car most of the day but faded at the end to 15th place, which enabled Matt Kenseth to take over the points lead.

Trevor Bayne came one second away from becoming just the third NASCAR Nationwide Series regular to win a race in 2014, as Kyle Busch continued his dominance of NASCAR's lesser series by winning the Buckle Up 200 at Dover on Saturday. Busch, who won Friday's Camping World Truck Series race, has a chance to sweep the weekend at Dover. Points leader Regan Smith finished 10th, one spot behind Elliott Sadler, who now trails Smith by four points in the standings while Chase Elliott is 22 back.

Jimmie Johnson, coming off a victory at Charlotte in the Coca-Cola 600 in which he set the all-time record for Sprint Cup wins at that track, returns to Dover International Speedway where he is also the all-time wins leader (8). If Johnson leads 97 laps or more on Sunday, he will surpass Bobby Allison for the most laps ever led at Dover.

Jimmie Johnson started in front of the field in the Coca-Cola 600 and he finished there too, finally earning his first win of the Sprint Cup season. Johnson passed Matt Kenseth -- another top contender who is still winless in 2014 -- with a handful of laps to go and went to Victory Lane for the 7th time at Charlotte, which makes him the all-time series leader in wins at this track.

text Breaking Down the Indy 500 Field
Mon, 19 May 2014 14:37:00 EDT

(Posted by Joey2448) The polesitter of the 2014 Indianapolis 500 mile race wasn't decided Sunday until the final car screamed down the front straightaway to log the last of four fast laps. It literally came down to the final seconds.

When the weekend finally wrapped up and time trials were over, Indianapolis hometown hero Ed Carpenter had claimed his second consecutive pole position for the Greatest Spectacle in Racing.

Saturday's time trials determined which group a driver would qualify with - the top nine would sort it out between each other in a shootout for the pole, positions 10 through 30 would decide rows four through 10, and the slowest three drivers would qualify in their own group to decide the 11th and final row of the grid.

The Sprint Cup series visits its "home" track for the longest race (600 miles) of the season on Sunday night. Jimmie Johnson will be going for his 7th win at Charlotte which would set the series record and break the tie he is currently in with Bobby Allison and Darrell Waltrip. Brad Keselowski won the last race here in October of 2013, becoming just the second Ford driver in the past 23 Charlotte races to visit Victory Lane.

text In Memory of Sir Jack Brabham
Mon, 19 May 2014 07:50:00 EDT

(Posted by NicoRosbergFan) Jack Brabham passed away this morning at the age of 88. He was one of the legends of the 1960s, and his 3 titles at the time of his retirement was good for second best all-time. His 14 wins is also equally impressive given that he raced in the same era as Moss, G. Hill, Clark, Surtees, Hulme, Stewart, and Rindt. No one knew how to put together a season quite like how he did, and he showcased his talents when he shocked the world by forming his own team, eponymously named Brabham to take on the F1 World Championship.

At first, Brabham's team struggled as the disadvantage of not being a factory team was obvious early on. Brabham took a bold step and hired Dan Gurney, who would later go on to win races as owner-driver himself. Gurney brought a much-needed second brain to the team, and in 1964 Gurney scored the first win for Brabham as a constructor.

Sam Hornish, Jr. continues to make the most of his rare opportunities in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, winning at Iowa Speedway in just his second start of the 2014 season after finishing fifth earlier this month at Talladega. Hornish outdueled young Ryan Blaney, as the veteran and the rookie combined to lead 247 of 250 laps.

Recent high-school graduate Chase Elliott took fourth place and now has a 2-point lead over Regan Smith and Elliott Sadler.

(Click the link for complete race results.) Jamie McMurray, who has won the Daytona 500 and the Brickyard 500, tonight added another of NASCAR's high-profile events to his resume by winning the Sprint All-Star Race at Charlotte. Though he has run in bad luck lately, with an average finish of 26th in his past 6 starts, McMurray must be considered a factor for next Sunday's Coca-Cola 600, which is also held at Charlotte.

text Kyle Busch Takes Third Truck Race of Season
Fri, 16 May 2014 23:19:00 EDT

In a race whose excitement consisted primarily of numerous crashes, Kyle Busch recorded his third NASCAR Camping World Truck Series win in three starts. Fellow Sprint Cup driver Brad Keselowski finished third and series regular Matt Crafton came home second.

Over one-third of the race was run under the yellow flag, including the final lap as Busch coasted across the finish line and maintained his perfect season.

Reddit and Dogecoin had a big impact on NASCAR on Friday, as their supporters enabled driver Josh Wise to pull off an upset, and because of it he will be racing tomorrow night in the Sprint All Star Race and Charlotte. Wise finished 18th in Friday's Sprint Showdown but he advances to tomorrow's main event by the popular vote, which was heavily expected to favor Danica Patrick.

Clint Bowyer and A.J. Allmendinger took first and second place in the Showdown, respectively, and they too advance into the Sprint All Star Race.

The Sprint Cup series ran under the lights -- except for when the ones on the backstretch went out -- for the first time ever at Kansas Speedway on Saturday night, and for most of the race it was clear that Jeff Gordon and Kevin Harvick had the cars to beat. At the end of 400 miles of racing, the two cars were separated by barely 1/10 of a second and Gordon had his first victory of the 2014 season.

Aside from Gordon the story of the race appeared to be Danica Patrick, who ran in or near the top-10 for most of the evening and achieved the best finish of her career (7th).

Harvick led the most (119 laps) while Gordon was out front for only 9 circuits including the final 8 laps. The event featured 25 lead changes, one shy of the record which was set in 2009.

At Kansas Speedway on Friday night the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series returned to action for the first time in over a month, and there was plenty of action early in the race, at least as measured by the number of spinouts and accidents. Points leader Timothy Peters only made it to lap 2 before tangling with Ron Hornaday, Jr. and although his team was able to effect repairs quickly Peters was not a factor for the remainder of the event and finished 9 laps down.

2013 series champion Matt Crafton took advantage of Peters' misfortune and had the only truck which was able to keep up with the Sprint Cup drivers who dominated the race almost from start to finish. Kyle Busch, Joey Logano and Austin Dillon combined to lead all but 4 laps of the 167-lap race which featured a short field of only 31 trucks. By taking second place, Crafton edged into the points lead by 8 over Peters and Hornaday.

BTW, Busch won the race.

The Camping World Truck Series will be back on the track next Friday night at Charlotte for the N.C. Education Lottery 250.

Results and driver stats are now avilable from 2009-present. Thanks, Leo!
