A driver took the checkered flag last Sunday at Infineon
that no one expected to; Kasey Kahne. Richard Petty Motorsports finally visited
Victory lane again since 1999 thanks to the #9 car and the expertise of a dirt
track racer from Washington. Kasey said that road courses were something
that he just couldn’t get his mind wrapped around because it defied all that he
had learned on the dirt. Just goes to
show that it doesn’t matter the track, the Budweiser Dodge likes them all. However, there is speculation about a
manufacturer change because of GM’s finanicial
situation. Please don’t go Toyota.
Wow, looking back at the results
from last season’s race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS), I forget that Kurt Busch (The older Busch brother) actually won a
race last year. It may have been because
of a rained out race, but a win is a win.
Is New Hampshire
expecting a repeat of the weather this Sunday?
The Weather Channel says, “Sunday: Scattered
thunderstorms possible. Highs in the mid 70s and lows in the
low 60s.” Kurt may have been
handed the checkered flag last year, but Kurt does have two other wins of his
own at New Hampshire.
talked about Denny Hamlin trying to make Pocono
a track of his own, but fell short because of Toyota woes.
Denny may have a replacement track in NHMS. Denny is right on top with the best average
finish of 7.2. Denny scraped up a win in
the spring race of 2007 and finished 8th for the Lenox Industrial
Tools 301 last June. Denny’s luck may
prove against his history at NHMS, but only Sunday will tell.
Martin Turex Jr. is hoping
to get back into the Top 10. Martin has four Top 10’s in a really short stint at New Hampshire of only six starts. A Top 5 is where Martin finished last season
with the most wins (4) and with some breath taking stats is Jeff Burton.
Out of a whoopping 28 starts, Jeff has only
And two of those are attributed to engine issues that were out of his
control. I belived
NHMS is a track that Jeff might like personally.
