NASCAR Race Review: The Kobalt Tools 400

March 6, 2011

Welcome NASCAR race fans to my NASCAR blog. This week’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race is the Kobalt Tools 400 from the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Nevada. 17 Matt Kenseth set a new track qualifying record of 188.884 mph and 28.58 seconds on Friday to capture the Coors Light Pole Award. This was his fifth career pole. 9 Marcos Ambrose sits on the front row with him. 6 David Ragan crashed in qualifying and posted no speed. He will start from the rear. 11 Denny Hamlin had to change the engine and will also start from the rear. 92 Brian Keselowski didn’t make the race. Fords have the first four positions.

FYI, Raybestos Brakes has always sponsored the Rookie of the Year Award. They will no longer be doing this. So Sunoco stepped up and we now have the Sunoco Rookie of the Year Award. 24 Jeff Gordon snapped a 66 race winless streak last week at Phoenix International Raceway, giving him 83 wins, tying Cale Yarborough for fifth. Can he make it two wins in a row? The Busch brothers are from Las Vegas, 18 Kyle and 22 Kurt, and are the hometown favorites. Kyle won here in 2009 but Kurt has no wins here. Can either of them win this race? Pole-sitter Kenseth has two wins here. Can he win from the pole? Mark Martin won the first race here, and won the Nationwide race on Saturday. Can he win again in his #5 car?

Ford and Dodge have new noses this year and the splitter in front is all one piece with no braces holding it. Hopefully, that will be better should anyone end up in the infield. There are two pace cars on the track before the Green Flag so that everyone can get a good reading of pit road speed. There are bumps in the lower groove of the track to contend with, so 17 elects to start the race from the outside.

So, here we go! 17 leads from the pole. 16 Greg Biffle gets by 9 for second. 17 and 16 battle for the lead and 16 takes the lead. The first caution comes out on lap 8 when 7 Robby Gordon slides through turn 4, all the way past the entrance to pit road. The leaders pit for fuel. (There is a new fuel can in play this year that eliminates the need for the catch can man. But this new can is harder to use and many are having long pits as a result.)

24 stays out to lead. 14 Tony Stewart takes the lead on the outside. 17 has a flat tire and has to pit. He will go a lap down. The second caution comes out when 34 David Gilliland gets too close to 71 Andy Lally and 71 gets sucked around. 7 Robby Gordon gets the free pass onto the lead lap. A few of the cars make a pit stop.

24 makes it three wide. 00 David Reutimann and 18 get by 24. 2 Brad Keselowski and 1 Jamie McMurray get together. Green Flag Pitting starts and 16 leads. 56 Martin Truex, Jr. leads, then pits. 27 Paul Menard leads. 21 Trevor Bayne is too fast entering and will have to come back in for a penalty. 36 Dave Blaney leads, then pits. 32 Mike Skinner leads, then pits. 14 is back in the lead after it all. 48 Jimmie Johnson is going nowhere. 78 Regan Smith blows the engine and heads for the garage. 48 gets lapped.

The third caution comes out on lap 97 when 18 has a flat tire and gets into the wall. He makes a pit stop and the caution comes out for debris. He gets his lap back, as the caution was not for him hitting the wall, but for debris. The fourth caution comes out when 22 gets loose and goes around, taking 4 Kasey Kahne with him, after contact with 6. The fifth caution comes out when 18 blows an engine and gets into the wall, with flames under the hood. He heads for the garage. 48 Johnson gets the free pass onto the lead lap.

14 is back in the lead. 16 is taking too long to fill the car with fuel and doesn’t get a full tank. 48 and 5 race for position and 5 takes the spot. 88 Dale Earnhardt, Jr. gets by 9, 39 Ryan Newman and 83 Brian Vickers. 99 Carl Edwards gets by 16 for second. 88 gets by 24 for eighth. 21 gets by 17 and 47 Bobby Labonte to be the first car a lap down. 29 Kevin Harvick gets by 56 for fifth. 16, in second, is out of fuel and has to pit. He stalls it trying to get out of his pit stall.

The sixth caution comes out when 34 cuts a tire and gets hard into the wall. 21 Bayne gets back onto the lead lap. 29 was too fast exiting the pits and looses his third spot. 14 exited the pits with the air hose still connected to the car. He is no longer leading. 99 leads them to the restart on lap 268. 48 gets by 24 for ninth. 16 pits for fuel.

The seventh caution comes out when 24 blows a tire and gets into the wall. He heads for the pits and gets stuck on pit road. The pits don’t open until they get him out of the way. 17 Kenseth finally gets his lap back. For the restart, the top five are 14, 42 Juan Pablo Montoya, 56, 99 and 88. 17 nudges 21 to get by. 21 gets into the wall. 11 gets by 39 for seventh. 9 gets by 88 for fifth. 14 starts Green Flag Pitting with 32 laps to go and takes four tires. 42 leads. 31 Jeff Burton overshoots his stall and has to back up before they can service the car. 16 didn’t get a second can of fuel. (Hopefully there will be enough to make it to the end.)

22 leads. 33 Clint Bowyer leads. 20 Joey Logano gets a time penalty. 00 leads before pitting. 99 takes two tires and comes out the race leader. 17 gets by 27 for eleventh.

And 99 Carl Edwards wins the Kobalt Tools 400, his tenth win on a 1.5 mile track. He does his backflip for the fans before getting the Checker Flag. There were thirteen different leaders. (As you’ll recall, Carl had the pole-sitting car last week but was slammed out of the race by Kyle Busch.) This was Carl’s second win at Las Vegas and his nineteenth career win. Tony Stewart now leads the points, tied with Kurt Busch. Carl Edwards is third, followed by Juan Pablo Montoya and Ryan Newman.

NASCAR Race Review: LifeLock.com 400

July 11, 2010

Welcome NASCAR fans to my NASCAR blog. This week’s NASCAR race review is of the nineteenth race of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season, the LifeLock.com 400 taking place at the Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, IL. 1 Jamie McMurray won the Coors Light Pole Award with a speed of 183.542 mph and 29.421 seconds. 48 Jimmie Johnson starts next to him on the front row. 09 is Bobby Labonte. 36 is Casey Mears. 32 is Mike Bliss. 55 Michael McDowell, 66 Dave Blaney and 64 Todd Bodine did not qualify for the race.

Chicagoland Speedway is one of four tracks that Jimmie Johnson has not won at. Can he win this week and check this off his list of tracks to win at? 400 miles at this 1.5 mile track is 267 laps. No cars have to go to the rear.

So, here we go! 1 chooses the outside for the start of the race. 48 takes the lead before the Line and leads the first lap. 16 Greg Biffle pulls ahead of 1 for second. 1 and 14 Tony Stewart battle for third, with 14 taking the spot. 24 tries to get by 1 for third, but can’t do it. 14 goes under 16 for second. 9 Kasey Kahne and 56 Martin Truex, Jr.  battle for ninth, with 56 getting by. 78 Regan Smith is up ten spots.  14 is fastest on the track right now. 24 Jeff Gordon and 99 Carl Edwards battle for seventh, with 99 getting by. 16 and 00 David Reutimann battle for fourth. 00 takes the spot. 00 and 16 split 13 Max Papis and 00 gets by 56.

The first caution comes out during the commercial when 26 David Stremme gets into the wall. 09 Bobby Labonte gets the free pass back onto the lead lap. 14 has a long pit when his jack man slips the jack in the seam in his pit. 47 Marcos Ambrose has missing lug nuts. 48 comes out of the pits first. They restart on lap 43.

1 gets by 56 for second. 42 Juan Pablo Montoya, 99 and 24 are three wide racing for position. 24 and 42 Juan Pablo Montoya battle and 24 gets by. 31 Jeff Burton and 43 A. J. Allmendinger battle and 31 finally gets by. 99 lets 24 by. 1 is closing in on the leader, 48. 18 Kyle Busch gets by 29 Kevin Harvick and 2 Kurt Busch. 19 Elliott Sadler gets by 5 Mark Martin and 5 fights back, but can’t get by. 18 and 29 get by 2. 29 and 77 Sam Hornish, Jr. battle, but 29 can’t get by.

42 gets by 14 and 16, into seventh. 14 gets by 16 for eighth. 88 Dale Earnhardt, Jr. gets by 39 Ryan Newman. And we come to Green Flag Pitting. 48 tries to pit, but has too much rear brake and misses entering the pits. 1 takes the lead. After it all, 1 is leading. 99 and 83 Reed Sorenson battle and 99 gets by. 48 catches and passes 56 for second. 43 scrapes the wall. 48 catches leader, 1.

The second caution comes out during the commercial for debris on the apron of the track. 39 Ryan Newman gets the free pass back onto the lead lap. 1 comes out of his first pit stall first. 2 is in the pits with the hood up, making major repairs. 1 chooses the inside for the restart and pulls away. 16 gets loose.

The third caution comes out when 48 spins after getting close to 56. 78 Regan Smith is the Lucky Dog and gets back onto the lead lap. 33 Clint Bowyer and 31 battle 99 for position. Both get by. 5 and 77 get by 20 Joey Logano. 17 Matt Kenseth goes to the apron to avoid 5 who is loose. 33 gets by 56 for third. 31 gets by 56. 16 and 56 battle for seventh and 16 finally gets by. 48 gets by 18 for 20th. 42 says he has a vibration. 6 David ragan and 88 battle for fourteenth and 6 gets by.

24 takes the lead. 00 and 1 battle for second. 00 finally gets by. 48 is running tight and gets into the wall, using up his right front tire. He has to pit. 14 gets by 56 for eighth. The fourth caution comes out for spinning 21 Bill Elliott. 7 Robby Gordon locks up the brakes and gets into 21. They both lift off. 77 Sam Hornish, Jr. gets the free pass onto the lead lap. 24 leads them into the pits and back out of the pits. 31 had trouble with a tire not coming off.

24 chooses the inside for the restart. 1 and 33 battle for second, but 33 keeps the spot. 99 slides backwards.  16 is loosing spots. He may be blowing up with his new engine. 29 goes to the garage. 00 gets by 1 for third. 78 gets by 18. 00 gets by 33 for second. 24 and 00 battle for the lead, but 00 can’t get by. They battle again, but 00 still can’t get by. 00 finally takes the lead from 24 during the commercial.

The engine on 16 finally gives up, but he stays on the apron and there is no caution. There is more Green flag Pitting and 33 leads. 99 leads. 42 leads. 00 says he has a vibration. 82 spins. 99 gets by 24 for second. 78 touches the wall while 00 tries to lap him. There was no caution before the White Flag.

And 00 David Reutimann wins the LifeLock.com 400. There was no late caution to shuffle up the field. The race got to play itself out to the end. Exciting, in my opinion. To me, the chase is like having a debris caution with a handful of laps to go to create more excitement. It changes the way a race unfolds. It changes the way the season unfolds. NASCAR was better before the chase where drivers were racing into the top ten instead of being locked into the top twelve. This race was a good race. The leader got to win with nothing changing the outcome.

Denny Hamlin Tweeted about late cautions changing the race outcome. And I have to agree with him. Late cautions change the outcome of the race. And not always best for the leader. In my opinion, the chase does the same thing. It changes things. But not really to have the right driver win. Each week and each race should unfold naturally, without any help to be more exciting. Racing is already exciting each week.

This was Reutimann’s first win of this season and his second career win. Jeff Burton moves up a spot. Clint Bowyer moves into the 12th spot and 88 moves out of the top 12. Reutimann moves up two spots.

Race Review: Dickies 500

November 9, 2009

dg0409TEX_5402Welcome race fans to the Dickies 500 coming to you from the Texas Motor Speedway in Ft. Worth, Texas. This race is the 34th race in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season and the 8th race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Texas Motor Speedway was busy this weekend, with races on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. On Thursday there was a tragedy at nearby Fort Hood. The flag is at half-mast and prayers are said for the victims and their families.

The Coors Lite Pole Award for qualifying took place on Friday, with Jeff Gordon grabbing the pole with a speed of 191.117. 02 David Gilliland made the race in the JGR fourth car. 71 is Bobby Labonte. 70 is Mike Skinner from the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. 12 is Brad Keselowski in his new ride for 2010. He will be in his new ride for the last three races. 36 is Michael McDowell. 96 is Erik Darnell. 21 Bill Elliott got into the race with his former champion provisional. Not making the race are: 37 Tony Raines, 66 Dave Blaney, 13 Max Papis and 09 Mike Bliss from the NASCAR Nationwide Series.

On Friday night, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series raced. 51 Kyle Busch won that race, with 88 Matt Crafton coming in  second. Saturday, the NASCAR Nationwide Series raced, with Kyle Busch winning that race also. He’s going for the trifecta, hoping to win all three races in a weekend at one track. He tried it at Auto Club Speedway in California earlier this year, but fell short on Sunday, finishing third. He will be the first one to do so, if he can pull it off. Jeff Gordon won at Texas Motor Speedway earlier this year. Can he make a sweep?

Jimmy Johnson leads Mark Martin by 181 points heading into this race. This is the last 500 mile race of the year. The Texas Christian University marching band did an excellent job with the National Anthem. 29 Kevin Harvick is the in-race reporter. 9 Kasey Kahne starts second.

So, here we go. 24 Jeff Gordon and 9 Kahne are side by side at the start of the race. 24 leads the first lap from the pole. 2 Kurt Busch gets by 9 for second. 2 takes the lead.

The first caution comes out on lap three. 00 David Reutimann, 77 Sam Hornish, Jr. and 48 Jimmy Johnson were three wide. 00 bumped 77, which got him loose. He went up the track, into 48. 48 gets into the outside wall, down the track, into 77, spinning him, and then into the inside wall. 48 has massive damage and heads to the garage, where they will rebuild the car. The crowd cheers because the points leader is no longer invincible.

18 Kyle Busch gets by 9 for third. 88 Dale Earnhardt, Jr. gets by 9 for fourth. 14 Tony Stewart gets by 9 for fifth. 16 Greg Biffle gets by 9 for sixth. 42 Juan Pablo Montoya drives around on the top of the track around 5 Mark Martin and they continue to battle. 5 gets back by 42. 6 David Ragan and 9 battle for thirteenth. 6 and 47 Marcos Ambrose battle side by side. 99 Carl Edwards gets by team mate 16. The leader 2 is lapping cars.

00 David Reutimann and 24 battle for third, with 00 taking the spot. 14 gets by 24 for fourth. 33 Clint Bowyer, 5 and 11 Denny Hamlin get by 16. 16 and 47 battle. 19 Elliott Sadler gets lapped and pits, starting Green Flag Pitting. 2 stays out the longest on old tires, and 18 leads after all the pitting is done. 77 gets sideways, but catches it. In the pits, 24 dropped a lug nut and had a long pit. 12 tries to stay on the lead lap, racing leader 18.

The second caution comes out on lap 87 when 77 spins out. 12 Brad Keselowski is the Lucky Dog and gets back on the lead lap. 18 chooses the outside for the restart. 14 and 2 battle for second. 26 Jamie McMurray gets loose, almost into 6. 5 and 17 Matt Kenseth battle. 42 and 24 battle for ninth, with 42 getting by. 00 and 47 battle for fourth, with 47  getting by. 5, 44 A. J. Allmendinger and 9 are three-wide. They end up 5, 44, 9. 17 gets by 9. 17 and 44 battle. 42 gets by 33 for eighth. 5 gets by 24.

48 is back on the track after one hour and eight minutes in the garage, 114 laps down. They rebuilt the car. He comes back into the pits to correct a tire rub. 47 catches second place, 2. And there is Green Flag Pitting once again. 11 leads when 18 pits. After it all, 18 is back in the lead. 24 and 99 battle. 24 and 1 Martin Truex, Jr. battle.

The third caution comes out as 1 and 24 were about to be lapped, for debris. 31 Jeff Burton gets the free pass. 47 had to back up in his pit stall to get by 39 Ryan Newman, who was gone by the time 47 backed up. The fourth caution comes out just past halfway, when 42 gets loose into 99. 99 gets into the wall. 24 gets loose and slides, trying to avoid them. 12 got into 42 to get him loose. 24 heads to the pits before they are open to fix the splitter brace.

2 chooses the outside for the restart. 18 spins the tires. 29 Kevin Harvick gets by 44. 31 gets by 16. The fifth caution comes out on lap 207. A tire goes down on 43 Reed Sorenson and he gets into the outside wall and down the track, into the inside wall. 43 heads for the garage. 6 David Ragan gets the free pass. Everyone comes to pit road. Smoke is coming from 02. 18 comes out first and chooses the inside. 47 gets by 33 for ninth. 42 is back on the track, smoking.

Once again, there is Green Flag Pitting. 18 pits and 2 leads. 2 stays out two more laps before he pits. After all the pitting, 18 is back in the lead. 18 laps 24, but 24 drives back by. 2 gets by 00 for second. Fuel is a factor in this race, with the leaders saving fuel, and not really racing, but just driving. 24 pits for fuel. 88 pits for fuel and stalls the car, loosing two laps. 18 runs out of fuel… 47 runs out of fuel.

And 2 Kurt Busch wins the Dickies 500 on fuel mileage. Kyle didn’t win the trifecta again. Kurt drives the car around the track in reverse. A lucky fan wins $1M as a result of 2 winning the race. There were only four different leaders this race.

NASCAR Racing:Talladega

October 31, 2009

brewster_540Welcome race fans to my blog. The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series is at Talladega Superspeedway in Talladega, AL. this weekend. The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is also there this weekend. On Friday, there were two practice sessions for the Sprint Cup drivers. The Talladega race is an impound race. That means that there will be no practice after qualifying. But, instead, the cars will be impounded after qualifying and no work will be done on the cars. What they have is what they race with. But maybe they should look at this again. The trucks also qualified on Friday.

On Saturday, it is raining. So Coors Lite Pole qualifying was canceled. This means they will line up according to owner points, putting 48 Jimmy Johnson on the pole, as he is leading in the points. In my opinion, it might have been better to have had qualifying on Friday and skip Happy Hour on Saturday. But that’s just my opinion.

44 teams showed up to qualify at Talladega. But only 43 will be able to race. Seams rather silly to me, as this race track is 2.66 miles long and there is room for one more car filling the 22nd row. But I don’t make the rules. As it is, with qualifying rained out, those not locked into the top 35 in owner points get in on attempts made. Regan Smith in the 78 car is on a limited schedule and has not attempted all the races. That would put him out of this race. However, lucky for Regan, 37 Tony Raines decided to bow out of the race. Letting Regan get the final spot.

Talladega Superspeedway gives the fans a great race every time. The engines are restricted with a plate to give less horsepower and thus slow the cars down. As a result, all the cars drive at about the same speed, putting them into one big pack. To me, this is exciting. Watching them race three wide, twelve rows deep is exciting. The only problem is that when one driver makes a mistake, the whole field gets involved. As a result, there are some spectacular crashes here. I personally like the three wide racing, but don’t like to see the crashes. Many fans watch the race to see the crashes.

After Carl Edwards flew into the catch fence in the spring race, just before the Finish Line, they made the catch fence eight feet taller. So that debris wouldn’t get into the stands.

There is also a rule here and at Daytona, the other plate race, that you can’t drive below the double yellow line to make a pass. However, in my opinion, this rule needs to be tweaked. Last year Tony Stewart bumped Regan Smith below the line. Regan was supposed to give the spot back. But the Finish Line was right there. And if he had done so, he would have caused a big wreck. As it was, he didn’t win the race and was put back to the 18th position. In the Spring race this year, Dale Earnheardt, Jr. got a run on the bottom, and Brian Vickers dove down to block him, putting Jr. below the line. Jr. moved up to get back on the track and got into Brian, who got into the rest of the pack. At the end of the race, Brad Keselowski pushed Carl Edwards into the lead. When the Checkers were in sight, Brad let Carl go, to try to win the race. Carl blocked, Brad stood his ground, and Carl flew into the catch fence.

In my opinion, the double yellow line rule should not be in effect on the last lap. What a great ending it would be with the cars racing 4 or 5 wide going for the Checkers! Regan would have won his first race.  Brad could have gone below the line to avoid contact with Carl. And they could have raced to the line. Although, it seems to me that blocking is the problem, not the line. If Brian hadn’t blocked, Jr. wouldn’t have had to get back on the track. If Tony hadn’t blocked, Regan wouldn’t have been below the line and could have won. If Kyle Busch hadn’t blocked Tony, Kyle wouldn’t have crashed near the Finish line. It’s blocking that causes the crashes. In my opinion.
