Sprint Cup Series News (4531)
The NASCAR Industry has seen its fair share of fights and feuds already this season and there could be another one that surfaces very soon.
Kasey Kahne has had a pretty strong run so far this season in his Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet with one win and four top-5 finishes. His two worse finishes this season, both on the plate tracks of Daytona and Talladega, have come at the hands of another driver, Kyle Busch. This weekend at Darlington was no different.
Kahne brought his could-have-been-race-winning car home in 17th place after an incident with Busch caused him to hit the wall. Busch was racing Kahne for the lead and came up behind him going into turn 2. Busch dive-bombed Kahne in an attempt to slide around him but he went into the corner too fast. He slid up the track and had to slam on the brakes behind Kahne. Busch’s car never touched the back of Kahne’s but his close contact was enough to take the air away from Kahne’s car and it sent him into the wall.
Busch ended up finishing 6th after a flat tire cost him the win in the very late stages of the race. He parked his No.18 Toyota and left without an interview. Kahne, however, did have something to say.
“I could see him and I was like ‘oh shoot, oh shoot’ and then the car moved and just spun out. I don’t know if he actually touched me or what, but his angle into the corner. If he would have just entered like normal, the way he has entered the whole race it would have been no issues and I would have been leading off (Turn) 2 and he just didn’t want that to happen so he blew turn one. So whether he hit me or not he still caused that whole deal with screwing up.”
“I think he just made another mistake. That is his third one when he has been around me this year. I don’t really understand it. We were battling for the lead or for the top two or three spots each time. I imagine he will call me again tomorrow and say he’s sorry. I mean he’s got to just race me. I mean I’ve never touched the guy in my life as far as on the race track. Three times this year, there have been other times in other years. I don’t really know what his deal is with me.”
Kahne was visibly upset but kept his cool during the interview. With three incidents already this season, what could some of these two drivers if something happens again? We all know Busch has a temper but it’s not often that we see Kahne get angry. Keep an eye on these two this season because there is a good battle brewing here.
History collides with the present, as names including Johnson, Gordon and Busch build upon a foundation laid by the likes of Waltrip, Yarborough and Earnhardt.
This Saturday night, the most thrilling all-star exhibition in all of sports roars under the lights at the historic Charlotte Motor Speedway, with the 29th running of the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race. There are no points in this one, but one major prize – a $1 million payout to the victor courtesy of Sprint.
In 1985, NASCAR held its inaugural all-star clash, with Darrell Waltrip coming home first among a field of 12. This year, 22 cars will take the green on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET, live on SPEED, Motor Racing Network Radio and SiriusXM Satellite Radio. Nineteen of those drivers have already locked up a spot; three more will earn entry moments before driver introductions.
A primer on the all-star eligibility…
- Drivers who have won NASCAR Sprint Cup Series points races in 2012 and 2013
- Drivers who are past NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race winners in the last 10 years
- Drivers who are past NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champions in the previous 10 years
- The top-two finishers in the Sprint Showdown, the 40-lap race that precedes the NASCAR Sprint
- All-Star Race
- The top Sprint Fan Vote driver who finishes the Showdown and whose car is in “raceable” condition as determined by the series director per the 2013 entry blank. Fans may vote for their favorite driver by using the NASCAR Mobile ’13 application or online at www.NASCAR.com/SprintFanVote. Votes cast from the NASCAR Mobile ’13 application count double.
Format changes will greet the world’s best drivers this weekend, all with one central theme: speed.
The need for speed begins Friday night with Coors Light Pole qualifying at 6 p.m. ET on SPEED. Qualifying will consist of three laps and a mandatory four-tire pit stop. Pit road speed, entering and exiting, will not be enforced. The team with the quickest time wins the Coors Light Pole and will lead the field to green on Saturday night.
Like last year, the 2013 NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race will consist of five segments – four 20-lap segments and a 10-lap shootout. The winner earns a $1 million pay day from Sprint.
But unlike last year, the running order at the completion of the fourth segment (Lap 80) will be repositioned based on the average finish for the first four segments – putting a premium on strong finishes throughout the entire event. The new lineup will be placed directly behind the caution car prior to the opening of pit road for a mandatory four-tire pit stop, placing a spotlight firmly on the unsung heroes of NASCAR – the pit crews. The order of the cars returning to the track will determine the starting order of the fifth segment. Running order ties will be broken by the finish of the fourth segment. In the fifth and final segment, only green flag laps will count.
This year there is even an added incentive: if a driver wins all five segments, he or she will take home “Bruton’s Big Bonus” – an extra $1 million paid by Charlotte Motor Speedway and Bruton Smith, Chief Executive Officer, Speedway Motorsports, Inc.
All of this action takes place this Saturday evening, the grand finale of a week packed with fan-friendly activities on and off the race track.
See below for a full schedule of events for the upcoming week. All on-track activity will take place at Charlotte Motor Speedway:

State Water Heaters, a leading manufacturer of commercial and residential water heaters, has joined Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR), the title-winning NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team co-owned by three-time Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart.
Effective immediately, State Water Heaters will be an associate sponsor of the No. 14 Bass Pro Shops/Mobil 1 Chevrolet SS driven by Stewart and the No. 39 Quicken Loans Chevrolet SS driven by teammate Ryan Newman. Additionally, State Water Heaters will serve as the primary sponsor of Newman and the No. 39 team during the Goody’s Fast Relief 500 Sprint Cup race weekend Oct. 25-27 at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway.
“The State Water Heaters brand has a rich history in the plumbing industry, and over that time we’ve developed strong partnerships with our wholesalers and contractors. We’re thrilled to join SHR where we’re able to share the excitement of this program with our customers,” said Jeff Storie, senior marketing manager, State Water Heaters. “We’ve recently launched some great new water heaters, as well as a new Find a Local Installer tool on our Website. We look forward to working with Ryan, Tony and the rest of the SHR team to raise awareness among the legions of NASCAR fans about State brand products and our loyal contractors.”
For more than 60 years, State Water Heaters has stood for durability. Tested under the toughest conditions in the most hostile environments, State Water Heaters builds long-lasting products that provide years of service. Motorsports also provides tough conditions and hostile environments, making State Water Heaters’ presence in NASCAR a natural fit. The Ashland City, Tenn.-based company has sponsored NASCAR teams since 2006, and it enters a new era by partnering with SHR.
“We’re very proud to welcome State Water Heaters into the Stewart-Haas Racing family,” said Stewart, who co-owns SHR with Gene Haas, founder of Haas Automation, the largest CNC machine tool builder in the western world. “State Water Heaters is an innovative company that prides itself on quality and customer service. Just as they deliver for their customers, we plan to deliver for them – on the track and off. It’s a strong brand that through its partnership with our race team will become even stronger.”
Want to know who's a lock to make the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup this year?
I'll give you six names: Jimmie Johnson, Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Clint Bowyer and Kyle Busch.
Typically, by the time the Cup series leaves Darlington, it's relatively easy to predict most of the Chase field. Last year, 10 of the drivers in the top 12 in the standings after the Mother's Day eve visit to the Lady in Black went on to qualify for the Chase.
That won't happen this year. Trust me.
The six drivers listed above are locks for two basic reasons. Number one is the point spread between Bowyer in fifth and Kasey Kahne and Brad Keselowski, who are tied for sixth. Bowyer has scored 349 points through 11 races, 23 more than the two drivers immediately behind him.
Second, five of the top six drivers (the first five listed above) have shown the sort of consistency necessary to make the Chase with relative ease. Johnson and Edwards have no DNFs this year. Kenseth has two but has run well in every race save Fontana, and his two DNFs are offset by three victories.
Earnhardt has been remarkably consistent, with seven top 10s and no DNFs in 11 races, but he and crew chief Steve Letarte have yet to find the speed they'll certainly need to contend for a championship. Bowyer likewise has been solid, if not spectacular.
Kyle Busch, eighth in the standings, has two DNFs but he also has five top fives (tied for second most in the series), two of which are victories. If Busch should fall out of the top 10 in points, he'll make the Chase as a wild card. You can take that to the bank.
Beyond those six, however, assumptions are impossible and predictions nothing short of precarious. For one thing, five of the 12 drivers who made the Chase last year—Jeff Gordon, Greg Biffle, Martin Truex Jr., Tony Stewart and Denny Hamlin—are currently outside the top 10.
Common sense tells you that most, if not all of the drivers in that elite group will make a move in the 15 races before the Chase field is set.
To add to the intrigue, no driver in positions 11-20 in the standings has a victory so far this year. Should that remain the case, Paul Menard and Gordon (currently 11th and 12th) would win the two Wild Card Chase spots by default.
Far more likely, however, is the prospect of such drivers as Hamlin (currently tied for 26th) or Stewart (21st) winning a race or two, cracking the top 20 and grabbing a wild card spot. And if you want a good long-shot bet, try road course ace Marcos Ambrose (23rd), who could use victories at Sonoma and Watkins Glen as a springboard into his first Chase.
Aric Almirola and Paul Menard, neither of whom has ever made a Chase, are currently ninth and tied for 10th in points, respectively. The next 15 races will tell us whether they have the staying power to go with their early-season success.
Of those currently outside the Chase-eligible positions, Hamlin has the most compelling story. After missing four races with a compression fracture of his first lumbar vertebra and giving way to a relief driver in a fifth, Hamlin celebrated his return to full-time Cup racing with a second-place finish in Saturday night's Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington.
Hamlin moved from 31st in the standings into a tie with David Ragan for 26th. Hamlin is 61 points behind Jeff Burton in 20th, the position he must reach to be eligible for a Wild Card, but he has 15 races to make the move.
Moreover, Hamlin must win at least one race, probably two. As dominant as Joe Gibbs Racing has been this season—winning five of the 11 races so far—that's a reasonable prospect, too.
That Hamlin is even a consideration for the Chase after sitting out four events, however, tells you just how wide open and unpredictable this year's competition will be.
When Tina Johnson began experiencing oral pain and infections in 2010, she spent a lot of time looking for answers, to no avail. But all of that changed once she met Aspen Dental practice owner Dr. Alison Teske (Meudt), DDS, and her team in Waukesha, Wis., who successfully treated Tina for periodontal disease and gave her a new reason to smile—her health.
On Saturday, May 18, Aspen Dental and Stewart-Haas Racing will celebrate Tina’s good health and experience by showcasing her healthy smile on Ryan Newman’s No. 39 Aspen Dental Chevrolet during the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway.
A resident of Waukesha, Tina was selected to have her photo featured on the No. 39 Chevrolet based on her comments on the Aspen Dental Facebook page:
“I first came to Aspen two years ago. My dentist, Dr. Alison Teske, and the staff at Waukesha Aspen Dental are awesome! Specifically Casey and Ann made me feel at ease. Aspen Dental gave me a wonderful smile! I highly recommend Aspen Dental to everyone.”z
“When I was sick, people would ask me to smile for photos and I would refuse,” Tina added during a follow-up conversation. “I went to Aspen Dental because I just couldn’t live that way anymore. The Aspen Dental team took those medical concerns away from me. They were the key to my recovery. Now, when people ask me to smile, I do!”
A resident of Brookfield, Wis., Dr. Teske graduated from Marquette University School of Dentistry and has been practicing for five years. She is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), Wisconsin Dental Association (WDA) and the Waukesha Chamber of Commerce.
Aspen Dental began featuring patients’ photos on Newman’s No. 39 Chevrolet during the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season, and will continue the tradition throughout the 2013 season.
The NASCAR All-Star Race gets underway on Saturday, May 18 at 9 p.m. EDT after the undercard Sprint Showdown is completed. SPEED will carry live coverage of both races beginning at 7 p.m., with its “RaceDay” program beginning at 4 p.m.
In 2012, Newman scored a pair of top-10 finishes driving the No. 39 Aspen Dental Chevrolet. He finished fifth in the Coke Zero 400 July 7 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway and 10th in the Sylvania 300 Sept. 23 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon.
“I’m looking forward to driving the Aspen Dental Chevy at the Sprint All-Star Race at Charlotte,” said Newman. “The opportunity to feature fans of Aspen Dental on the car puts a smile on everyone’s face. I know Tina will be watching!”
Aspen Dental will also be the primary sponsor of Newman’s No. 39 Chevrolet during the AdvoCare 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekend Aug. 31-Sept. 1 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. For all other races during the 2013 season, Aspen Dental is an associate sponsor with placement on the lower-rear quarter panels of the No. 39 Chevrolet and prominent positioning on Newman’s uniform. In addition to Newman, Aspen Dental is also featured on the uniform of Tony Stewart, driver of the No. 14 Bass Pro Shops/Mobil 1 Chevrolet and co-owner of Stewart-Haas Racing.

Danica Patrick enters this weekend not quite knowing how many laps she will race on Saturday night.
She might race 40, or she might race 130 depending on what happens with the Sprint Fan Vote and the Sprint Showdown. Both are part of the non-points Sprint All-Star event Saturday night at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway.
Twenty-two drivers are already locked in the 90-lap Sprint All-Star race by virtue of either a Sprint Cup race win in 2012 or 2013, an All-Star Race win at some point in the last 10 years, or a Sprint Cup championship in the last decade.
Patrick, who has only 21 Sprint Cup starts in her career, does not meet those requirements but has two other ways she can lock herself and the GoDaddy Cares Chevrolet team into the Sprint All-Star Race. She can finish first or second in the 40-lap Sprint Showdown, which takes place right before the Sprint All-Star Race, or win the Sprint Fan Vote. Fans can vote for Patrick until 5 p.m. EDT Saturday at NASCAR.com or on the NASCAR Mobile ’13 app, where votes count twice.
Patrick’s No. 10 GoDaddy Cares Chevrolet SS for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) will carry the logo of GoDaddy Cares for this weekend’s Sprint All-Star festivities. GoDaddy Cares is GoDaddy’s charitable branch whose unique “Round Up for Charity” program in which customers who purchase a domain name or a product at GoDaddy have an option of rounding up their purchase to the nearest dollar. Customers then select a charity of their choice from an extensive list offered by GoDaddy.
Three of the charities on that list are featured on Patrick’s GoDaddy Cares Chevrolet SS this weekend:
n Hope for Haiti: Hope for Haiti is a Naples, Fla.-based charitable organization operating in Port-au-Prince and out of Les Cayes in the south of Haiti. Serving in the most remote areas, Hope for Haiti’s mission is to improve the quality of life for the Haitian people, particularly children, through education, nutrition, and health care. For more than 20 years, the organization has been working in partnership with the Haitian people to connect, heal, and empower communities on the path toward sustainability.
n National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF): The National Breast Cancer Foundation was founded in 1991 by breast cancer survivor Janelle Hail. NBCF continues to grow every year to help more and more women around the world by educating them about breast cancer and providing free mammograms to women in need.
n VEX Robotics / REC Foundation: The Robotics Education & Competition Foundation (REC) seeks to increase student interest and involvement in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) by engaging students in hands-on sustainable and affordable curriculum-based robotics engineering programs across the United States and internationally.

If there was one person who best described the attitude of everyone involved in Saturday night’s NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway, it would be former track President H.A. “Humpy” Wheeler, who once called it a race in which the owner of the car tells the driver, “Bring me back the trophy or the steering wheel.”
While it’s uncertain whether team owner Joe Gibbs has said this to Kyle Busch, driver of the No. 18 SNICKERS Bites Toyota Camry in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, the talented young driver certainly would be expected to do just that, even without the urging of the man who cuts his paycheck.
Busch locked in his spot for this year’s All-Star event – comprised primarily of 2012 and 2013 Sprint Cup race winners, plus past All-Star Race winners and past series champions – via his one series win in 2012 and two wins in NASCAR’s top series thus far in 2013. This year’s wins came at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif., in March and Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth in April.
The Las Vegas native not only has earned the title of All-Star, he’s become one of the dominant forces in the elite Sprint Cup Series. His win at Texas last month was the 26th of his Sprint Cup career, and Busch now has 112 career wins in NASCAR’s top three divisions – Sprint Cup, Nationwide, and Camping World Truck.
Busch was regarded as a potential star when he entered the Sprint Cup ranks full-time in 2005 as a raw 18-year-old, but he’s quickly transformed that star potential into bonafide all-star status since joining JGR at the beginning of 2008. And he’s continued to shine well into what is now his sixth season with JGR.
As a competitor who has tried to focus on racing smart during points-paying events week in and week out, Busch views Saturday’s non-points-paying All-Star Race as his annual opportunity to throw patience out the window at his own discretion.
Busch will debut a new scheme he hopes to find in victory lane on Saturday night with SNICKERS Bites. The brand new hunger-satisfying innovation that offers the trademark SNICKERS combination of chocolate, peanuts, caramel and nougat shrunk down into small, no fuss, “pop ’em in your mouth” milk chocolate cubes. The unwrapped treats are ideal for sharing, whether while watching a movie, attending a gathering, or for fans cheering Busch to victory lane.
So, as fans keep an eye out for the SNICKERS Bites Toyota come Saturday night, there’s nothing more than money and pride on the line. Whether Busch brings back the trophy or the steering wheel, it’s a safe bet he’ll be exciting to watch.
No. 15 5-hour ENERGY Toyota driver Clint Bowyer never imagined he would get the opportunity to race under the lights at Charlotte Motor Speedway for the chance to win $2 million in the Sprint All-Star Race. Bowyer, who won three races in 2012 to qualify for the non-points race, makes his fifth start in the high-stakes race Saturday night.
SPRINT ALL-STAR RACE:“The Sprint All-Star race is such a great event for everyone involved - it normally brings out great racing, tempers and a mad dash to the finish. It’s different than the races each weekend in about every way. You have to win a race to get invited. It’s a pure money event - points don’t mean a thing. The format changes a little each year, but the only thing you have to remember is the guy that finishes first in the last 10 laps segment is walking home with a lot of cash. And I love cash! And so do all the other guys and we’ll do about anything we can to get to that finish line first. There is over $1 million on the line - and two million if you win every segment. It is going to be crazy from start to finish. It’s going to be one heck of a show for the fans and I hope to be standing there with a mountain of cash at the end.
“When I started racing in Kansas we would take off at the drop of the hat to go race in a $5,000 to win night out at the dirt track. Guys would bring their best stuff and try all sorts of things to get that big payday. There would be hard racing, fights and all kinds of stuff that would erupt over that kind of prize. This Sprint All-Star Race is just like that - but for the chance to win up to $2 million if you win the event and take home the Bruton Smith Bonus. To say it will be crazy won’t even begin to describe it.”
"The Lost Trailers" to headline Brad Keselowski's Checkered Flag Foundation's Memorial Day CelebrationWritten by Steven B. Wilson

"When you think of Memorial Day, you think of a day you spend remembering those who have made great sacrifices for us to do what we like to do, which in my case is driving a race car mostly in circles," Keselowski said. "I can't think of a better way to spend the holiday than by spending it with my friends, supporters, veterans and current military members celebrating our nation's heroes for a worthwhile cause. I also think it's pretty cool that the guys from 'The Lost Trailers' are going to play for us. It will be a great day."
"We are very excited to be headlining Brad's Checkered Flag Foundation's Memorial Day celebration," said The Lost Trailers founder Stokes Nielson. "We feel very honored to be a part of this celebration. We hope people will bring their family and friends to have a great time with us while remembering and celebrating those who have sacrificed for our great nation."
