It looked pretty clear that had JJ's crew and car not gone to pieces, he would've won the race and probably won the championship. BK was playing it too safe and had gotten himself locked in to the middle of the field and was facing a fuel-mileage problem.
That's racing though. Congrats BK! Great to see Penske finally win a championship too.
So those are the cars that are supposed to look more like real stock (consumer) cars? Looks like they get to personalize the headlight, taillight, and grill decals. Even if you took all the sponsor decals off and painted them I don't think they would look like real cars.
Turner and JR Motorsports trading drivers: Kasey Kahne and Brad Sweet joining JRM and bringing Great Clips to team; (had been the 30/38 car); assigned the #5, Regan Smith to the 7, AND Danica to Turner?
Michael Waltrip to drive the #30 in the Daytona 500
yes, but Swan Racing (was Inception Motorsports) is under a new format, and they weren't guaranteed a spot much like what Waltrip did in 2012, after crashing in the Duel.... Michael has only committed the last few years to Kentucky and the Restrictor plates in the 55. Stremme will return @ Phoenix. MW attempted this race for Hillman Racing in 2012...
Day 1 of Winter Testing is over; 11-Hamlin is done due to paternity leave;
Mike Bumgartner named Crew Chief of the #5 (Kahne/Sweet) JRM entry;
