NASCAR’s Rules and Regulations

The rules and regulations inherent in NASCAR competitions are many and never ending; depending on the events before, during and even after a race, the final results can suddenly change due to the huge book of rules and regulations by which NASCAR races are governed. David Stremme starts first in today's Sprint Showdown being held at Lowe's Motor Speedway NASCAR officials had to really go through the book on Friday as qualifying for Saturday’s Sprint Showdown was washed away due to light rain that was falling on the track and they still needed to determine the grid order for today’s Sprint Showdown. Just how... [Read more]

Casey Mears to Penske Racing is a Make Sense Deal

Despite being handed his walking papers from Hendrick Motorsports when the team announced at the end of June that Casey Mears would no longer be the driver of the no. 5 car in 2009, it’s not exactly the end of world for Mears. Really, if it had to happen, it couldn’t have happened in a better year with seats still remaining open at Richard Childress Racing, Penske Racing, and technically, even Stewart-Haas Racing for next season. With Roger Penske and Ryan Newman recently announcing their split at the end of the year, the no. 12 ride at Penske has now become one of the more highly touted rides available for ‘09.... [Read more]

Stewart Haas Racing Could Get Loose in Turn 3

Image details: LifeLock.com 400 Practice served by picapp.com Tony Stewart has won 32 races, finished in the top-five 125 times, and has recorded 200 top-ten finishes through 9 1/2 seasons of racing in the Sprint Cup Series for Joe Gibbs Racing. He has also brought home two championships for the organization during that timeframe, but at the completion of his tenth season with the company, Tony will say goodbye to the Gibbs family and venture out into the unknown as a 50% owner and a full-time driver for what was formerly known as Haas CNC Racing in 2009. Stewart Haas Racing, as the new company will be called, will take on... [Read more]

Newman, Penske Racing to Part Ways in 2009

Image details: LifeLock.com 400 Practice served by picapp.com It came as very little surprise to most fans when Roger Penske announced on Monday afternoon that Penske Racing and Ryan Newman were unable to come to terms in their ongoing contract negotiations, and that Newman would be leaving the team following the completion of the 2008 NASCAR season. Newman currently sits 16th in points and has been slowly working his way down the points standings ever since winning the season-opening Daytona 500 back in February, which also marks the only victory for the no. 12 team since the end of 2005. Still, with 13 wins and 105 top-ten... [Read more]

List of the Week: 5 Predictions for NASCAR’s Silly Season

Image details: LifeLock.com 400 served by picapp.com With all of the shakeup that’s taken place here within the last few weeks - between Hendrick Motorsports announcing the release of Casey Mears and the addition of Mark Martin to their stable next season, and then Tony Stewart leaving Joe Gibbs Racing to venture into the car ownership business - I believe that enough “dominoes” have fallen now for everything else to start to follow suit. And, with that, I offer you my top-five predictions for how the rest of this will all sort itself out leading into the 2009 NASCAR Sprint Cup season. 5. If they are unable to... [Read more]

Jamie McMurray Likely to Remain at Roush

Image details: Coke Zero 400 Practice served by picapp.com About a month ago, rumors started to surface that Jamie McMurray had been handed his walking papers from car owner, Jack Roush, and that this would be his final season with Roush-Fenway Racing. Despite immediate denials by both McMurray and Geoff Smith (President of Operations at Roush-Fenway Racing), most of us - myself included - still bought into the rumors and pegged McMurray as a sure bet to be one of the drivers petitioning for a ride this off-season. But, a month later, after seeing how some of the other Silly Season rumors and deals have panned out, I’ve... [Read more]

Who’s Going to Fill the #20 Seat at Joe Gibbs Racing?

Image details: The Meijer 300 served by picapp.com Good morning, everyone. It’s another Friday here in mid-July, and it’s a hot one out there ….. which is rather fitting, because that’s the only way to describe the NASCAR scene as of late! I welcome you to another edition of our overly-glorified “Loose in Turn Three” segment. Of course you all know me, and with me as usual are my fellow NASCAR Bloggers, Bruce Simmons and Charlie Turner. Just as we do every week, we have a trio of topics that the three of us are going to be discussing, but before we jump right into that, let’s start... [Read more]
