Bliss Wins Carquest Auto Parts 300

Never let a good thing go by not grabbing on for the ride! On Saturday night in the Carquest Auto Parts 300 Nationwide Series race on Lowe’s Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C. Mike Bliss used this idea to take advantage of superior fuel management and mileage to take the lead and then Mother Nature did the rest. As three short laps after Bliss took the lead the rain began to fall and NASCAR officials decided to pull the red flag out, making Bliss the official winner with thirty laps remaining in the scheduled 200. Mike Bliss takes his second NASCAR victory This is Mike Bliss’s second victory in the Nationwide series,... [Read more]

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]

Speed and Menard make headlines in changes

On Tuesday, Scott Speed and Paul Menard made headlines after being announced as drivers on two Sprint Cup cars. Speed was rumored to take over for A.J. Allmendinger in the No. 84 Red Bull car and Tuesday it was finalized. Menard moves from DEI to Yates Racing and will bring over his Menards sponsorship. Menard was one of two drivers at DEI that had a full sponsor, but he will be taking that with him to Yates. Now, only Martin Truex, Jr. is left at DEI with a full sponsor. Menard has gone 68 career races with reaching the winner’s circle and posted only one top 10 finish in his career at DEI. Menard’s first race... [Read more]

List of the Week: Longest Winless Streaks Inside the Top 20

The winless streaks by drivers such as Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon and Kevin Harvick have ranked amongst some of the biggest stories so far this season. They came into this week’s race at Watkins Glen as some of the odds-on-favorite to win, but alas, Kyle Busch shut the door on those plans yet again. This week’s “List of the Week” will feature the 10 longest winless droughts amongst the drivers inside the top-20 in points. 10. Matt Kenseth - 22 races - Last Win: Homestead-Miami Speedway, Fall 2007 9. Jeff Gordon - 27 races - Lowe’s Motor Speedway, Fall 2007 8. Greg Biffle - 29 races - Kansas Speedway,... [Read more]

DEI Not Helping Truex Jr’s Case for the Chase

NASCAR officials confiscated and impounded the no. 1 DEI Chevy driven by Martin Truex Jr. on Thursday afternoon when the car failed multiple attempts during the opening day inspections, as the roof failed to meet the inspection templates. The incident forced Truex to miss out on the first practice session after the team was unable to beat the roof into submission and NASCAR mandated that the team unload their backup car. Crew Chief, Kevin Manion, then decided to change the engine on the backup car, costing Martin valuable time on the track. Now, with rainy skies hovering over the Daytona infield, practice will be at a premium... [Read more]

NASCAR Rivals: Kevin Harvick vs. Tony Stewart

NASCAR Rivals: Kevin Harvick vs. Tony Stewart

Okay, so they’re actually pretty good friends and probably the furthest thing from being rivals with one another, but still. It’s pretty abnormal for Smoke to run this deep into the season without a Sprint Cup win to show for it, but so far in 2008, he’s managed to do just that. Of course, the racing Gods haven’t really seemed to help Stewart out much in that department, either. What … a pit road speeding violation during the last round of stops at Pocono … the cut tire at Charlotte … the late race wreck at Talladega … the mid-race wreck at Vegas … and, of course, the last... [Read more]

List of the Week: Winless Cup Series Drivers

David Gilliland almost got it done on Sunday at Sonoma, and we’ve seen a few impressive runs from unlikely candidates earlier in the year. But, following up on a 2007 that brought us a handful of first-time winners in the Cup Series, I find it surprising that we’ve yet to have even one this season. So, it got me to thinking, that’s led us to this week’s “List of the Week”, in which I will rank the five likeliest candidates currently driving in the Cup Series to become the next first-time winner: 5. David Reutimann - Running in his second full-time season for Michael Waltrip Racing, Reutimann... [Read more]

There’s A Lot Riding on Sonoma

If you ask any driver or any team owner, they’ll be the first to tell you that every race is a big deal, and nobody can deny that. But, as I take a look at the starting grid for the Toyota Save/Mart 350 and then look at the points standings, when I combine that with everything that I know has already taken place in this crazy season, I can’t help but think that it especially holds true this weekend at Infineon Raceway, and it all starts right there at the top of the field. Kasey Kahne has been on a helluva roll ever since he won the All-Star Race in Charlotte about a month ago. Of the four points races that have taken... [Read more]

Loose in Turn Three: Will the Big Penalty Influence Stewart’s Decision?

Welcome everyone to yet another rendition of your favorite weekend blogging series.  I’m joined here by Bruce Simmons from Bruce’s NASCAR Bits & Pieces, and the infamous Charlie Turner from On Pit Row for our weekly rendition of “Loose in Turn Three”. This week here at Do You NASCAR, we’re going to determine what effect - if any - the big penalties handed out by NASCAR to Haas CNC Racing will have on Tony Stewart’s future in the sport. Over at the Bits & Pieces, with Pocono now in the rearview mirror (temporarily), we talk about whether it’s time for them to repave the track,... [Read more]

NASCAR Puts Their Perrenial Foot Down, Sticks it to Haas CNC

Image details: Coca-Cola 600 Practice served by picapp.com The NASCAR Commission announced on Tuesday their ruling on the appeal from Haas CNC Racing and their decision to uphold the penalties handed out for violations incurred at Lowe’s Motor Speedway for the Coca Cola 600. During practice for the race, NASCAR officials confiscated both of the team’s cars - the #66 driven by Scott Riggs and the #70, which at the time was driven by Johnny Sauter - for violations of the upper rear wing mounting points. NASCAR docked both drivers 150 driver points and car owners, Jack Custer and Margaret Haas, 150 owner points. They... [Read more]
