Trevor Bayne’s Good Sam/Camping World Ford Fusion was strong all day in the Geico 400 at Chicagoland Speedway, and the Wood Brothers’ pit crew had one its best performances of the year, neither of which was reflected in the official results.

Bayne was credited with the 20th place finishing position, and said afterward that he could have finished considerably better had he had a little more racing luck.

“It was a tough day,” he said. “We kept getting bad positions on the restarts. We kept getting on the outside, and it was tough up there. Everyone would lose positions up there.”

“If I could have ever restarted on the bottom and had some track position, I think we had a decent car.”

Team co-owner Len Wood said the team also had the misfortune of being on pit road when one of the race’s four caution flags was displayed.

“We had intended to pit a few laps later, but when everybody started stopping, we decided to short pit, and then we were sitting on pit road when the caution came out,” he said. “We were able to take the wave-around and get back on the lead lap and stay there almost until the end of the race.”

Wood said Bayne and the Donnie Wingo-led crew had to work all day to keep up with changing track conditions, but once Bayne hit pit road it was smooth sailing.

“We had the most consistent day on pit road that we’ve had in a long, long time,” he said.

 Bayne and the Wood Brothers No. 21 Ford Fusion return to the Sprint Cup circuit in three weeks for the Good Sam Roadside Assistance 500 at Talladega, where Motorcraft and Quick Lane return as primary sponsors.

Brad Keselowski, driver of the No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Challenger in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS), finished fourth in the Dollar General 300 powered by Coca-Cola at Chicagoland Speedway on Saturday afternoon. The defending winner of this event, Keselowski made a late-race rally to record his 11th top-five finish of the season.

Keselowski began the 200-lap race from the 16th position, based on his lap of 31.106 seconds, or 173.600 miles per hour, around the 1.5-mile oval. From the drop of the green flag, Keselowski began moving towards the top 10. He radioed to crew chief Jeremy Bullins that his car was loose on corner entry and exit of both ends of the track, while also tight in the center. Despite this handling condition, Keselowski was able to maneuver his way to just outside the top five before the second caution of the day, at lap 39, brought him down pit road. Following a quick pit stop that consisted of four tires, fuel and an air pressure adjustment, Keselowski restarted the race from the fifth position at lap 45.

Following the first round of adjustments, Keselowski continued to fight a tight-handling condition in the center of the Chicagoland corners. However he lost no track position as he continued to hold his fifth-place spot as the race neared the halfway point. To help his driver, Bullins prescribed a wedge adjustment on the next pit stop, which occurred under the green flag at lap 95. When the pit stops cycled through, Keselowski found himself in the 10th position.

The Discount Tire Dodge responded to the second round of adjustments, but developed a loose-handling condition on corner exit. Bullins began to work on a plan to balance out the chassis for his driver. He chose to drop the track bar, along with changing four tires and adding fuel, under a lap 125 caution period. Keselowski responded by turning some of the fastest laps on the track as the run progressed. Another air pressure adjustment on the final pit stop of the night helped to dial in the setup a bit more to set Keselowski up for a run to the finish.

After restarting the race from the eighth position at lap 172, Keselowski made his way into the top five at lap 186. He continued to squeeze every ounce of speed from his Discount Tire Dodge over the final laps, before setting for a fourth-place finish. The top-five finish is the 84th of his NNS career.

Penske Racing teammate Sam Hornish finished sixth in the Dollar General 300 presented by Coca-Cola on Saturday afternoon.

Following Saturday’s result, Keselowski and the No. 22 team remain seventh in the NNS owner point standings.

“The Discount Tire Dodge was just OK today,” said Keselowski. “We were fast, but not fast enough at the end to run with and catch the leaders. We made some adjustments on the car and fought all day long and was able to bring home a fourth-place finish. We just didn’t have the perfect car today to run with Ricky (Stenhouse Jr.) and Austin (Dillon). It was a respectable day for everyone. We didn’t give up on it all day and a fourth-place was all that we could get today.”

Sam Hornish, Jr., driver of the Penske Racing No. 12 AVIS Dodge Challenger in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, finished sixth in Saturday afternoon’s Dollar General 300 presented by Coca-Cola. The result marks Hornish’s 18th top-10 result of the 2012 season.

Hornish qualified for the event in the fourth position after turning a lap of 30.510 seconds, or 176.991 miles per hour, around the 1.5 mile speedway during the Saturday afternoon qualifying session. The Defiance, Ohio native was strong in the opening laps of the 200-lap event as he was able to drive his way from fourth to second within the first two circuits of the track.

An early yellow flag at lap three bunched up the field with Hornish scored in the second position. On the lap seven restart, Hornish made a determined charge for the front in his Dodge Challenger to lead the eighth lap of the race and pick up a valuable championship point. As the race settled into a long green-flag run, Hornish reported that his AVIS Dodge was building tight as the run progressed. Subsequently he slipped back into the top-10.

At lap 38 the second caution of the afternoon set up the first pit stop for the No. 12 AVIS Dodge car and crew. At lap 41, while scored in the 10th position, Hornish brought his Dodge Challenger to the attention of the Penske Racing crew who gave him four fresh tires and fuel along with air pressure and chassis adjustments. The green flag waved at lap 44 with Hornish running 10th but he went to work by carving his way up to sixth by lap 60. He radioed in that his AVIS Dodge was loose on corner entry, tight through the center and loose on corner exit.

Over the middle portion of the race Hornish would run solidly in the top-10. A lap 123 caution flag brought the No. 12 Dodge Challenger another opportunity for the AVIS crew to service their Dodge machine. At lap 125 the Penske Racing crew made air pressure and chassis adjustments while changing four tires and topping off the fuel. During this stop the AVIS Dodge crew picked up two positions for their driver and, on the lap 129 restart, he was shown running in the fifth position. Hornish would hold steady in the top-five for most of the remainder of the event; running as high as second after a late race restart before fading back to sixth as the checkered flag ended the race.

The result marks Hornish’s 18th top-10 of the season and with the outcome Hornish and the No. 12 AVIS Dodge team remain securely in fourth in the championship standings.

“Today we just didn’t quite get a handle on our AVIS Dodge,” said Hornish. “There were times that we could make a run towards the front for a few laps after a restart, but over the long run our car was a bit too free into the corner then tight in the center and free off. We took some big swings at it during the pit-stops, but we just didn’t get it where we needed to be. It was a good run though and the guys did a good job in the pits. We were just a top-six car today. We will see what we can learn and look forward to Kentucky.”

Penske Racing teammate, Brad Keselowski finished fourth in the No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge.

Ryan Newman had a little luck on his side, a strong No. 39 Workshops for Warriors/Gene Haas Foundation Chevrolet under him and some solid pit calls that helped the team march to an impressive fifth-place finish in the Geico 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Ill.

“I think at best we had a fifth-place car, and I’m just happy to get that,” said Newman, who earned his fourth top-five and 10th top-10 finish of the season. “The Workshops for Warriors/Haas Automation Chevrolet was decent at times, and we had a couple good restarts where we snuck it in on them three-wide, and it worked and we were able to make up some ground.

“I have to give it to crew chief Tony Gibson – he had a great call on strategy on two tires there at the end of the race, and the tires were great today as far as durability, so that really helped us to get this finish. To be honest, I’m just happy to be in the top five again and stopping on pit lane talking to the media. We were all pretty disappointed after last week and not making the Chase. Our goal was to go out every week the rest of the season and get some solid runs – top-fives, top-10s and even wins and to try and be the best non-Chaser out there. I think Kyle (Busch) finished one ahead of us today, but I’m proud of our performance.”

For Newman & Company, the fifth-place finish at Chicago was a great way to rebound from failing to make the Chase.

After starting 20th Sunday, Newman had his work cut out for him. Throughout the afternoon, he battled with a racecar that was tight in the center and loose exiting the turns. The car’s handling deteriorated during extended runs.

Determined to get the car right for its driver, the No. 39 pit crew adjusted the Workshops for Warriors/Gene Haas Foundation Chevy at each opportunity. The car seemed to improve with the adjustments, but it wasn’t enough until a very timely caution flag waved at lap 148.

Newman, who had been running in the top-15 for most of the day, was just one of a handful of cars that hadn’t done a green-flag pit stop when the caution flag was displayed at lap 148. He brought the No. 39 down pit road for four tires, fuel and adjustments. When he returned to the track for the restart at lap 157, Newman was in fifth place. And thanks to a gutsy maneuver on the restart, Newman moved up as high as third.

While Newman couldn’t hang on to his top-three spot, he stayed in the top-10 for the remainder of the 267-lap race. A two-tire pit call for his final stop of the day at lap 231 got Newman back out on the track quickly, and he returned to the top-five before the end of the race.

Tony Stewart, driver of the No. 14 Office Depot/Mobil 1 Chevrolet for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR), finished sixth. It was Stewart’s 13th top-10 result of 2012 and his 10th top-10 in 12 career Sprint Cup starts at the 1.5-mile oval.

The Geico 400 marked the second straight race and the eighth time this season that Newman and Stewart have finished in the top-10 together.

SHR driver Danica Patrick, who is driving the No. 10 GoDaddy.com Chevrolet for Tommy Baldwin Racing via a collaborative agreement with SHR, finished 25th. It was her best career Sprint Cup finish, coming in her sixth Sprint Cup start and her first at Chicagoland.

Brad Keselowski won the Geico 400 to score his eighth career Sprint Cup victory, his fourth of the season and his first at Chicagoland.

Jimmie Johnson, who led four times for a race-high 172 laps, finished 3.171 seconds behind Keselowski in the runner-up spot. Kasey Kahne, Kyle Busch and Newman rounded out the top-five. Stewart, Joey Logano, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Martin Truex Jr. and Clint Bowyer comprised the remainder of the top-10.

There were four caution periods for 23 laps, with 11 drivers failing to finish the 267-lap race.

Stewart is representing SHR in this year’s Chase for the Sprint Cup and entered the first race of the 10-race Chase seeded third among the 12 Chase drivers, three points behind No. 1 seed Denny Hamlin. Stewart leaves Chicagoland still in third, eight points behind new Chase leader Keselowski.

Newman moved up two spots to 14th in the standings with 773 points, 41 back of 13th-place Busch. Patrick is running a 10-race Sprint Cup schedule and only accumulates points in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.

Tony Stewart has no problem with the opening round of the 10-race Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup beginning at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Ill. Stewart, the driver of the No. 14 Office Depot/Mobil 1 Chevrolet for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR), has a series-best three wins at the 1.5-mile oval and only two finishes outside the top-10.

Stewart padded his Chicagoland statistics Sunday, as his sixth-place finish in the Geico 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race gave Stewart his 10th top-10 in 12 career Sprint Cup starts at Chicagoland.

“We probably passed more cars than anybody today, so not exactly what we were looking for,” said Stewart after logging his 13th top-10 finish of 2012. “We were just a little bit off and we’ll keep working on it, but if we can be a little bit off and end up with a top-10, then we’re in good shape.

Stewart’s sixth-place result took a lot of effort. He started 28th, and after climbing all the way to 11th, Stewart had to go right back to where he started when a pit-road miscue during his second scheduled stop while under caution forced him to return to pit road. Instead of having one, two-tire pit stop that would’ve put him in the top-10, Stewart had two, two-tire pit stops that jettisoned him to 28th when the race restarted on lap 71.

“If we can just get a break, we’ll be right back in this thing,” Stewart said over the radio.

Again Stewart drove to the front, rising to sixth before a round of green-flag pit stops began on lap 134.

Stewart’s pit stop came off without a hitch. But as the jack dropped and Stewart left his pit box, the caution flag waved for Casey Mears’ accident in turn two. Just like that, Stewart was a lap down, and he was forced to take advantage of the “wave around” rule, which allows any car that doesn’t pit under caution to get a lap back if every car on the lead lap does pit.

Stewart was back on the lead lap in ninth place when the race restarted on lap 157. He cracked the top-five before the caution flew for the final time on lap 189 for Jeff Gordon’s crash in turn one.

Stewart and SHR teammate Ryan Newman each took four tires on the subsequent round of pit stops, while others took only two. When the race restarted on lap 194, the top-six drivers had taken only two tires. Newman and Stewart were the best of the four-tire brigade, and they lined up seventh and eighth, respectively.

The race went green the rest of the way, which meant one final round of crucially timed, green-flag pit stops was in order.

Stewart made his stop for fuel and four tires on lap 235. Good to go the distance on gas, Stewart cut fast laps right until the checkered flag dropped, trailing Newman across the stripe in sixth.

Newman’s fifth-place finish in his No. 39 Gene Haas Foundation/Workshops For Warriors Chevrolet marked his fourth top-five finish of 2012 and his third top-five in 11 career Sprint Cup starts at Chicagoland.

SHR driver Danica Patrick, who is driving the No. 10 GoDaddy.com Chevrolet for Tommy Baldwin Racing via a collaborative agreement with SHR, finished 25th. It was her best career Sprint Cup finish, coming in her sixth Sprint Cup start and her first at Chicagoland.

Brad Keselowski won the Geico 400 to score his eighth career Sprint Cup victory, his fourth of the season and his first at Chicagoland.

Jimmie Johnson, who led four times for a race-high 172 laps, finished 3.171 seconds behind Keselowski in the runner-up spot. Kasey Kahne, Kyle Busch and Newman rounded out the top-five. Stewart, Joey Logano, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Martin Truex Jr. and Clint Bowyer comprised the remainder of the top-10.

There were four caution periods for 23 laps, with 11 drivers failing to finish the 267-lap race.

Stewart is representing SHR in this year’s Chase and entered the first race of the Chase seeded third among the 12 Chase drivers, three points behind No. 1 seed Denny Hamlin. Stewart leaves Chicagoland still in third, eight points behind new Chase leader Keselowski.

Newman moved up two spots to 14th in the standings with 773 points, 41 back of 13th-place Busch. Patrick is running a 10-race Sprint Cup schedule and only accumulates points in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.

An over-revved engine that eventually started to spew smoke ended Regan Smith's day prematurely in Sunday's Geico 400 Sprint Cup Series race at Chicagoland Speedway.

While running in 18th place on Lap 197 of 267, Smith reported a problem with his No. 78 Furniture Row/Farm American Chevrolet. He was instructed to bring the car to the team's garage stall where it was determined there was internal engine damage. Smith did not return to action and was credited with a 34th-place finish.

"Obviously a very frustrating ending," said Smith. "We ran strong in the beginning and then had some issues on pit road that pushed us back in the pack. But we kept on plugging away and just before the engine started to smoke, I felt we were on pace to have at least a top-15 finish."

Smith, who produced a strong qualifying effort of seventh, ran in the top-10 until the first pit stop on Lap 42.

"We had it going early but a couple of miscues halted our momentum," noted Smith. "We did fight back but when you see smoke coming out of the hood, you know it's only a matter of time before it all comes to an abrupt halt."

With nine races remaining, Smith is 23rd in driver points.

The Chicagoland race winner was Brad Keselowski.  Rounding out the top-10 in order were: Jimmie Johnson, Kasey Kahne, Kyle Busch, Ryan Newman, Tony Stewart, Joey Logano, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Martin Truex Jr. and Clint Bowyer.  

There were 16 lead changes among nine drivers and four cautions for 23 laps.

In his first career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start, Augie Grill overcame adversity again and again, facing an early spin and truck damage from hard side-by-side racing. Despite going several laps down near the beginning of the 200-lap event when a competitor forced him into the wall, Grill and the No. 4 Turner Motorsports team never gave up, but were ultimately relegated to a 27th-place finish.

 

With the 13th-fastest truck in both first and final practice, Grill qualified 20th for the American Ethanol 200 presented by Hy-Vee. After taking the green flag, the NCWTS rookie began to chip away at track position, working his way into 16th before contact with another truck on lap 36 sent him spinning through the frontstretch grass. Grill managed to save the truck and avoid any consequential damage, and crew chief Mike Hillman Jr. called him into the pits to take four fresh tires.

 

Despite the early setback, Grill once again made progress on the racetrack, racing from 23rd into 11th by lap 62. Close to breaking into the top-10, Grill and the No. 4 team were sidelined when another competitor failed to clear him on lap 69, pushing the Chevrolet Silverado into the outside wall and causing serious body damage and a blown tire. Grill brought his Turner Motorsports truck to pit road, and his crew quickly went to work repairing the damage and replacing four Goodyear tires over the course of two pit stops. While servicing their truck, the team learned that the sway bar had been damaged in the wreck as well, and they set to work preparing to fix it in their next opportunity to visit pit road.

 

Grill restarted 24th on lap 75, and a caution on lap 96 provided the team a chance to repair the sway bar. Hillman Jr. made the call to be cautious in thoroughly making the repair, sacrificing laps on the track in the sake of safety. Grill returned to the racetrack in 28th and five laps down, but able to continue making solid laps and gaining experience on the racetrack. Grill picked up four positions as other competitors fell out of the event, but was ultimately forced to retire from the event eight laps before the checkered flag due to issues under the hood, resulting in a 27th-place finish.

 

"This wasn't the way we wanted our night to go, but I can't thank Turner Motorsports enough for the chance to drive for them this weekend. I came into this race determined to make the most of this opportunity, and even though it may not show in the race results, I gained a lot of experience and had some fun out there. The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is extremely competitive racing, and I'm really glad I got to go out there, race against these guys and work with Hillman [Jr.] and this great No. 4 crew."

Miguel Paludo earned his third top-10 finish of the season at Iowa Speedway, closing up the points gap between him and the top-10 in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) driver standings. Paludo rebounded from an ill-timed caution, which put him two laps down, to fight his way back onto the lead lap and score a 10th-place finish.

 

After running top-15 lap times in the weekend's two practice sessions, Paludo laid down the eighth-fastest qualifying lap prior to the green flag for the American Ethanol 200 presented by Hy-Vee. Although his truck had an initial tight condition, Paludo maintained his starting position through the opening 35 laps. When the caution waved for a multi-truck accident on lap 36, crew chief Jeff Hensley called his driver into the pits for a fuel-only pit stop, sending him back onto the race track in 10th.

 

When the field went green on lap 41, Paludo advanced to ninth on the restart, but slipped to 14th by lap 51. When the caution was displayed on lap 55, Paludo relayed to the Turner Motorsports crew that the Duroline Chevrolet was even more aero tight than it was at the start. Hensley called the No. 32 onto pit road for four tires, fuel and a track bar adjustment. Because several drivers opted not to pit, Paludo took the lap 60 green flag from the 18th spot, determined to regain track position and clean air.

 

The Duroline Silverado was immediately handling better after the green, and Paludo broke back into the top-10 by lap 76. Working his way up to eighth, Paludo keyed his radio to relay that his truck was becoming aero tight again, but he was able to continue his charge to the front over a long green-flag run, taking over fifth by the time green-flag pit stops began on lap 140. Paludo brought the Duroline Chevy to pit road 10 laps later for a green-flag stop, receiving fresh Goodyears, fuel and another track bar adjustment to loosen his truck's handling.

 

Paludo returned to the track in 18th as pit stops continued, now running the fastest laps on the racetrack. However, when the caution flag waved on lap 165 for debris, stops had not completely cycled through, and because the field was very spread out over the green-flag run, Paludo found himself two laps down with only six trucks on the lead lap. Because his truck had recently pitted, Hensley made the call to remain on the track and receive the wave around, putting Paludo only one lap down in the 16th position for the lap 174 green flag.

 

Paludo reiterated that his truck was handling really well, but was limited in the positions he could gain while not on the lead lap. Regardless, Paludo elbowed his way into 12th before the yellow waved on lap 190, and as the first truck one lap down, he received the free pass to put him back on the lead lap. With only seven laps remaining when the green flag waved, Paludo was able to advance two more positions, crossing the finish line 10th on lap 200. Paludo remains 11th in the driver point standings, now only two points outside the top-10 and three points behind ninth place.

 

"Tonight was a great effort by all my guys. We definitely had a truck that was better than 10th, but after getting caught two laps down because of the caution, a top-10 was a great recovery. I'm really proud of the Duroline team, and now I can't wait to get to Kentucky. We are so close to breaking into the top-10 in points, so I'm hoping by the time next weekend's race is done we're going to be ninth or 10th in the standings."

Scoring his first career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series pole award on Saturday afternoon for the American Ethanol 200 presented by Hy-Vee, Parker Kligerman had his sights set on finishing out the night at Iowa Speedway on top. After proving to be the dominant truck during both practice sessions over the weekend and leading a race and career-high 107 of 200 laps, he was well on his way to covering the field and taking the checkers when an unfortunate turn of events came with less than 20 laps remaining. A right rear tire failure sent Kligerman spinning on the front stretch, and the damage that followed forced him to a 23rd place finish.

 

Kligerman showed the speed his No. 7 Red Horse Racing Tundra possessed on the very first run during the first practice of the weekend on Friday evening. Reporting to crew chief Chad Kendrick that he had only minor adjustments in mind, the 22-year-old driver put his Toyota at the top of the speed charts for the majority of the session. Following up with the fastest time in final practice on Saturday, Kligerman laid down a blazing fast 22.90 second lap during qualifying, setting the new Iowa Speedway track record.

 

Pulling out to a convincing lead from the drop of the green flag, Kligerman had the field covered and ran nearly two tenths of a second faster than those behind him through the first round of pit stops under caution on lap 36. Kendrick brought Kligerman down pit road for his first set of fresh tires and adjustments to tighten up the No. 7 Toyota Tundra "just a tick" for the driver. Restarting in the 12th position due to different pit strategy by the rest of the field, Kligerman wasted no time picking his way back to the top of the board.

 

Differing pit strategies up and down pit road would eventually shake up the field again past halfway, as some teams chose to bring their drivers down pit road under caution on lap 96. Kendrick chose to keep the No. 7 machine on the track since they were not in their fuel window to make it to the end. Several other trucks followed suit, and green flag pit stops approximately 35 laps later shook up the field and shuffled Kligerman back to the 12th position with 50 laps to go.

 

The sixth caution of the night bunched up the field and gave Kligerman a shot to gain back his lost positions in one fell swoop. After taking the wave around to get back on the lead lap, he took the restart behind several competitors that were laps down due to the wave around rule. Kligerman knew he had to gain back the lost track position quickly, and jumped to the outside to make a bold four-wide move into turn one. He found grip and soared around several competitors, regaining lost ground in less than one lap.

 

Disaster struck just shortly after Kligerman made his daring moves, as his No. 7 Tundra snapped around on the front stretch and spun towards the infield with two flat right side tires. While driving his damaged truck back to the pit area, Kligerman lost a lap to the leaders and sustained further damage to the front suspension from the flat tires. Forced to hang on for the remaining 20 laps, Kligerman crossed the finish line in 23rd.

 

"I really can't say enough about this Red Horse Racing team and the attitude and effort they bring to the race track every weekend," Kligerman said. "It really showed this weekend how hard they work on these Toyota Tundras. We had such a great run going.  I thought we had it, but that's racing.  The right rear tire blew and the spin after that caused more damage.  But, this team is too good to not get a win soon, there's no doubt about that.  I'm proud of their effort and how fast this Tundra was.  We will just have to get them next weekend at Kentucky.  If you don't think this team is a contender for this NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship then you're not paying attention."
