Dodge Continues to Support NASCAR

Business as usual is the cry at Penske Racing this week as they access the results of their last race and prepare for the race this week at Richmond International Raceway amid Chrysler filing for bankruptcy protection Thursday and rumors of Dodge being forced to pull their support for their NASCAR efforts. Dodge support is rumoured to be in trouble in NASCAR It seems weird that these events would be occurring at a time when a Dodge driver stands triumphant in the lead of NASCAR’s premier series point’s standings after over a year of absence, the last driver to do so was Ryan Newman after victory in the 2008 Daytona... [Read more]

Goodyear Was Starting to Get Loose in Turn 3 … But, They’re Straight Now

Some would say that it’s been a trying season for Goodyear in 2008 as they continue to work on developing new tires to coincide with NASCAR’s latest project, the Car of Tomorrow. Things got heated early in the season between Goodyear’s racing group and some of the drivers in the garage area, particularly after Atlanta when several of the drivers bashed the tire in public forums. You might recall one man inparticular’s rants regarding the tires as they made headlines for several weeks. Yes, I’m referring of course to Tony Stewart. It seemed as though things had finally cooled off between all parties... [Read more]

Martin Truex Jr. to Return to DEI in 2009

*Credit photo to Newscom. Martin Truex Jr. finally put an end to the many rumors that surrounded a potential move for him to Stewart-Haas Racing, Richard Childress Racing, and Penske Racing in 2009 when he and the suits at Dale Earnhardt Inc. finally inked a deal on Wednesday that will have him returning to the no. 1 car next season. It was reported over a week ago that Truex and DEI had reached a verbal agreement that would extend Truex with the organization through the 2010 racing season. Those rumors have not come to fruition, as Truex’ future beyond next year remains unclear, but several sources are reporting that... [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]

Newman; Wallace: Former ‘Mates Still Can’t See Eye to Eye

It’s no huge secret that Ryan Newman and Rusty Wallace were never exactly the closest of friends during the few short years that they teamed together at Penske Racing earlier this decade, and their relationship was again tested this past weekend at Indianapolis, and it was Rusty that fired the opening shots. Baffled at the notion that anyone would ever dare leave a man that he has such deep respect for, Roger Penske and his organization, Rusty allegated that it was Penske Racing’s decision to let Newman go and that they’d fired him. “He didn’t leave,” Wallace stated. “I’ve read... [Read more]

Martin Truex Jr. Calls Bull… on ESPN.com

Martin Truex Jr. has been one of the names mentioned these past few months as one of the top candidates to make a move to some of the vacated seats that teams are offering up for 2009, to include Stewart Haas Racing, RCR, Joe Gibbs Racing, and Penske. David Newton over at ESPN.com recently attempted to squash all of those rumors in an article that he posted stating that not only had Truex come to an agreement with his current team, Dale Earnhardt Inc, that would keep him in the no. 1 car in 2009, but that the deal would also carry all the way through 2010 with a myriad of sponsors taking the front hood of the car throughout that... [Read more]

Stewart-Haas Racing; Ryan Newman Have Narrowed Their Options

  As most predicted, Tony Stewart and Stewart Haas Racing’s announcement on Friday afternoon brought to a close at least two of the lingering mysteries surrounding the team’s future for 2009. Stewart announced that the side of his car next season would be labeled with the no. 14, previously made famous by his racing idol and longtime friend, AJ Foyt. They also announced that the second team car will carry the no. 4, which was the first car number Stewart raced with, way back when he was still racing Go-Karts. Additionally, Stewart announced that the team has partnered with both Office Depot and Old Spice as the primary... [Read more]

Stewart-Haas Racing Expected to Make Announcement on Friday

served by picapp.com Several sources are indicating that Tony Stewart and his newly formed Stewart-Haas Racing are expected to make an announcement this Friday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. While many people are quick to jump to the conclusion that this announcement will put a close to the highly anticipated second driver scenario, that does not appear to be the case. Instead, Stewart is expected to officially announce that his car next season will be the no. 14 - the same number driven by racing legend, AJ Foyt - and, that he has come to an agreement that will partner Office Depot and Old Spice as his primary sponsors in 2009. The... [Read more]
