Patrick, whom some people feel may be in danger of losing his ride next season, will start Sunday’s Lenox Industrial Tools 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway from the pole position, lining up on the front row next to Bobby LaBonte, whose fastest lap came in 0.163 seconds slower than Carpentier.

This puts points leader, Kyle Busch, up front on the pole position, giving him his third of the year, with second place, Jeff Burton, lining up next to him on the outside of row 1. Row 2 will consist of Dale Earnhardt … [Read More]

It’s admittedly WAAAY too early in the season for NASCAR’s silly season to already have gotten as it deep as it has, that’s for sure … but, alas, I must do my small part in life to contribute to this nonsense, because – well, quite frankly it intrigues me.It all started just a few weeks into the ‘08 season when Richard Childress Racing announced the addition of a fourth team to their arsenal next year, and immediately everyone started pointing towards Bobby LaBonte to fill the seat in that ride due to his … [Read More]

Martinsville Qualifying Report

Sprint Cup Series action finally returned to the track with Martinsville qualifying today after a well-deserved week off of racing, and Hendrick Motorsports remains at the tip of the tongue after quite a bit of talk about their underachievements in 2008.
