I hate off weeks..

http://www.mispeedway.com/Articles/2...Tire-Test.aspx

2 day tire test at the repaved MIS.

Quote:
“This place is fast. I mean fast, fast,” NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Juan Pablo Montoya said. “Our minimum speed this morning was over 180 mph through the corner when you think about it. We are doing easily over 210 mph at the end of the straight.
Will the series see restrictor plates back at Michigan?

It will be a lot warmer when they actually race there so I imagine the speeds won't be as great as they had in this tire test.

Also, Pocono Raceway is almost complete. They will be running a tire test later this month.




And last but not least, Kansas is being repaved and reconfigured.

Looking at the practice times for Kansas i'm guessing that Johnson will probably win this and now Hendrick will get the 100th win.

Tony not pleased.

NASCAR will find anything to throw a caution, especially when #88 could be in the mix. Joke.

Hope McClure is ok. Sucks to see a guy have to leave the track in a chopper.

Gotta think we're really lucky this happened today and not like 5-10 years ago.

Yep, all the safety improvements saved a life right there.

Also, I like it when Danica punted Sam Hornish Jr. into the wall after the race

While it is not in the YouTube video above, the sight of the track member waving for help was very scary. Glad he will be okay.

If I had one specific criticism for NASCAR, it is that there is no changing of the guard or no hot young guns in the series. I recently watched parts of a NASCAR race and most of the field I recognize instantly from being when I watched a NASCAR race 10 years ago.

There is a lot of good young talent, like Brad Keselowski. The problem is that it is tough to get into the top 3(Hendrick, RCR, Roush Fenway). Not to mention it is harder to get sponsorship than it has been in the past. Heck, Matt Kenseth still doesn't have sponsorship for certain races this year.

Most of the young guns are racing in Nationwide waiting to fill a prime seat in Cup.

NASCAR driver Eric McClure, injured in a violent wreck in Saturday's Nationwide Series race at Talladega, Ala., was released from UAB Hospital in Birmingham, Ala., on Monday.

Team spokeswoman Emily Brandt said McClure suffered a concussion in the accident and mild internal bruising. She said he is expected to make a full recovery.
Good News.
