Jeff Gordon Gets New DuPont Paint Job For 2009 Season

The first time we the fans will officially see “Fire Storm” will be during speed weeks in Daytona. The Hendrick Team holds one of the longest standing sponsor/driver/owner relationships in NASCAR history. Richard Petty and STP come to mind when I think of other long standing relationships with sponsors. Of course, Jeff Gordon is no Richard Petty, but you have to give him credit for being a great driver and champion.

$700B Bailout Gives A Tax Break To NASCAR Tracks

Under the terms of the financial “rescue plan,” motor sports facilities will be allowed to depreciate their capital investments over a 7 year period rather than the previously stated 15 year time frame. That means less of the earnings from each of those seven years will go towards taxes, helping the track owners achieve a higher annual profit in the short term. The new provision will provide incentives for track owners to invest in their facilities on improvements such as repaving tracks, new concession stands, parking lots and more.

FavoriteTeamWear asks: Would the Points Race Be Different Without Chase Points?

After watching Kyle Busch fall to 12th in Sprint Cup Chase points over the last 2 weeks, I can’t help but wonder where the chasers would be without the Chase setup. I did some research on this, and found that the points race would be different.

Greg Biffle celebrates Sprint Cup victory with the 3M Rousch Racing Ford Fusion at Dover

Greg Biffle Wins 2 In A Row:

Jack Rousch must of been sitting on the edge of his seat as well. With Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth, and Greg Biffle all trading paint for the win at the Monster Mile, I wonder who Rousch was rooting for. Maybe he simply rooted for the three NOT to wreck each other. I can’t help but wonder, though, could he be rooting for Biffle in the 3M car?

Jimmie Johnson 3Peat – Is it Sprint Cup History in the Making?

Can Ryan Newman Make The Chase?

While most of us are aware of the Chase, and who is fighting for the top 12 spots to get in. And with only two races left, one after tonight, a few drivers are still fighting for the Chase. Ryan Newman, in the #12 Alltel car, is in 15th (179 points out of 12th) and really needs to race well and hope that someone like Clint Bowyer, in the #07 Jack Daniels car, or Denny Hamlin, in the #11 FedEx car has some real problems and finish out of the top 30 for Newman to have a chance.

NASCAR Drivers Are Changing Rides, What Do You Do?

So, with big names like Tony Stewart, Ryan Newman, and others moving at the end of this season. And names like Dale Jr., and Kyle Busch changing last year, what do the fans do? I think most stay with their drivers and, in turn, must recollect new apparel and memorabilia.

Born to Race – Tony Stewart

If anyone was born to be a racer, it is Tony Stewart. You only have to look at this Indiana native’s racing career to see why many are comparing him to A.J. Foyt and Dale Earnhardt Sr. Despite the comparisons, Stewart is a unique driver and he is carving out his own page in racing history.
