New Hampshire Fantasy Racing Preview

Here are some pertinent facts and information to help set your fantasy racing lineup for Sunday’s FoxWoods Resort Casino 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Who’s Hot in New Hampshire Brad Keselowski – The Team Penske driver is still looking for his first win of the 2018 season and it may well come in Loudon. Keselowski has three straight top-10 finishes and an average finish of 6.9 over the last 10 races there. Kyle Busch – The five-time winner this year has a solid track record in New Hampshire. His most recent win came in 2015, which capped a streak that saw Busch finish either first or second in four of five races at “The Magic Mile.” Martin Truex Jr. – The defending series champion goes into New Hampshire with great momentum after his dominating Kentucky victory last week. But his best Loudon finish is third. That came in this race a year ago and was followed by a fifth-place run in September. Kyle Larson – Another winless driver in 2018, Larson put a pair of second-place fi..

New Hampshire Weekend Preview

New Hampshire Schedule Both the Xfinity and Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will be in action this weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The 1.058-mile Loudon oval will host the Cup Series for just a single weekend this year as the annual fall date has been moved to Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Sunday will be the 47th time the Cup Series will compete at “The Magic Mile” since making its debut there in July 1993. Martin Truex, Jr. goes into the weekend after scoring win No. 4 of the season last week in his dominating performance to win the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway. But the defending series champion has never won at New Hampshire, something he hopes to rectify Sunday afternoon in the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301. “I would have to call New Hampshire my first home track because I’ve been going there for a long time – back as a kid watching my father (Martin Truex Sr.) race,” Truex said. “Winning at New Hampshire would be the biggest one of them all. It’s no Daytona 500, but..

Briscoe Digs In for Eldora Win

Race Results Chase Briscoe edged Grant Enfinger at the finish to win Wednesday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Eldora Dirt Derby at Eldora Speedway. Briscoe and Enfinger raced side-by-side throughout the two laps of overtime around the half-mile dirt oval, making contact several times. As they headed to the checkered flag, Briscoe made contact with the left side of Enfinger’s truck before it slapped the wall. At the finish, Briscoe was ahead by inches. “I wasn’t going to wear him out. I wasn’t just gonna wreck him for the win,” said Briscoe, a former Truck Series regular who has returned to running midget and sprint cars this year after Brad Keselowski Racing shut down. “We rubbed. I definitely let it float all the way to the wall and I’m sorry about that. It’s not how I race, but this means so much to win at Eldora.” Briscoe, who is also running limited schedules in IMSA and the Xfinity Series, won in what is slated to be his only Truck Series start of the season. “It j..

Challenges Crop Up in Charlotte Road Course Testing

CONCORD, N.C. — A key finding for teams after two days of testing on Charlotte Motor Speedway’s road course configuration is how quickly trouble will find you. After an eventful Tuesday at the 2.28-mile circuit, two bends — Turns 1 and 3 — are in the early running for most treacherous. Rookie William Byron’s hard hit early in the afternoon session was the biggest pitfall of the two-day test, held on consecutive Tuesdays on the combination oval and road course. The track time was the latest step in preparations for the Bank of America Roval 400, the first road-course event in NASCAR postseason history on Sept. 30. NASCAR.com: Photos from Charlotte testing Byron’s Hendrick Motorsports No. 24 Chevrolet nosed into the tire barrier rounding Turn 1 after a brake failure. The hard left-hander that leads to the track’s infield portion also was the site of fellow rookie Bubba Wallace’s sizable crash last week. “I think just going over the curbs and everything, we just snapped a brake line a..

FRR in Sponsorship Search

DENVER, Colo. – Defending Cup Series champion Furniture Row Racing and driver Martin Truex Jr. are currently seeking sponsorship on the No. 78 Toyota for 2019 to replace 5-hour ENERGY, which informed the team it will be ending its NASCAR involvement at the conclusion of the current season. 5-hour ENERGY joined Furniture Row Racing in 2017, serving as majority primary sponsor on the No. 77 Toyota with Rookie of the Year winner Erik Jones, as well as a season-long associate and two primaries on the No. 78 with Truex during his championship campaign. In 2018, 5-hour ENERGY became the major co-primary on the No. 78 along with Bass Pro Shops/Tracker Boats for 30 Cup races. The energy shot company has been a NASCAR primary sponsor for nearly a decade, including the last seven at the Cup Series level. Truex and Furniture Row have continued their championship form into the 2018 season, scoring four wins and 13 top-five finishes after 19 of 36 events and are solidly positioned for an appeara..

Opinion: Mid-Week Time Has Come

The Camping World Truck Series will take center stage Wednesday night for its annual mid-week visit to Eldora Speedway. The trucks had a weeknight race last Thursday at Kentucky Speedway and will do so again next month when it travels to Bristol Motor Speedway. It’s time for the top-tier Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series to follow suit. Mid-week Cup racing has been a topic of conversation in recent years but hasn’t gotten out of the discussion stage. There are certainly many challenges to put NASCAR’s premier series on a weeknight stage in prime time. But the benefits outweigh whatever risks there may be. Denny Hamlin, part of a drivers group involved in regular conversations with NASCAR officials, believes there is momentum to the idea. “I see it within the next couple years. You’re gonna see something Wednesday, Thursday,” Hamlin said recently on an episode of Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s “Dale Jr. Download” podcast. “This time of the year … no basketball, no hockey, no football … we’ve ..

Larson Dominates Silver Cup

SARVER, PA – July 17, 2018 – Kyle Larson started fourth and worked his way by Ian Madsen on Lap 9 and never looked back to win his first World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series Feature of the year and sixth in his career. Larson also set Quick Time over the 37-car field and won his Heat Race. Brad Sweet finished second with Donny Schatz coming from ninth to complete the podium at the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup at Lernerville Speedway. Western Pennsylvania’s own Tim Shaffer won the Sears Craftsman Dash to earn the pole for the 40-lap Feature. Shaffer, the 1993 Lernerville Track Champion and two-time Silver Cup winner, led the opening four laps before Brandon Spithaler spun off the track, bringing out the only caution of the event. World of Outlaws rookie Ian Madsen took advantage of the double-file restart to take the lead from Shaffer down the backstretch. Madsen led lap five and Larson took second from Shaffer a lap later. Larson slid Madsen for the lead on Lap 8, but the A..
