JGR currently holds the record as the only team to get multiple drivers in during the same year (Carl Edwards and Kyle Busch in 2016). Unlike other teams we’ve seen in this spot in the Round of 8, they also start with an edge heading to this weekend’s race at Martinsville Speedway. Ambrose is currently 17th in Sprint Cup points in his first full season of competition, finishing third behind winner Kyle Busch and runnerup Mark Martin at Bristol Motor Speedway Saturday night. Ty Dillon of Germain Racing won Stage 1. It was the first stage win of his career. Hamlin, who won at Daytona and in a night race at Darlington this year, has five career Martinsville victories, including three in a row during the 2009-2010 seasons. Hamlin, Harvick and Truex had all won playoff races, and Hamlin’s win at Phoenix last week gave him all the momentum. Small filled in as Erik Jones' crew chief for two races in 2017. As part of Small’s move atop the box, Jeff Curtis is back in the Truex camp as the new lead engineer after a season at Chip Ganassi Racing.
I feel like we’re all here because we work together," Truex said. "Our teams work together really well. Eventually, it became clear that Keselowski’s only real option for 2010 was Penske Racing, which rewarded Stremme for yeoman work as a test driver a year ago, only to watch the Indiana native struggle in his first season in NASCAR’s new racers. Stewart first tried to drive a stock car at Buck Baker Driving School in Rockingham and Buddy Baker turned up to watch “Smoke” turn laps at North Carolina Speedway. Those drivers will get a taste of short track driving this Sunday at virtual Bristol Motor Speedway for the Food City Showdown. Bristol should be an especially interesting race for these drivers, who coincidentally finished in consecutive order in April. “Certainly as we go back to work, all the race teams are going to practice much different social distancing techniques than we ever have before,” Gabehart said. Back in 2006, Roush-Fenway Racing owner Jack Roush tendered an open invitation for Patrick to drive for him, anytime she wanted. 22 team’s unused owner points for Hornish, after BDR’s new owners shuttered the racing portion of that operation.
NASCAR’s Top-35 rule was established to reward team owners for their support of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. They have been a major sponsor in the NASCAR Nationwide Series for the past 15 years, most recently with Baker-Curb Racing and driver Jason Keller. Teams like Front Row Motorsports, Penske and RCR have been forced to become modern-day cradle robbers, looting the tomb of all valuables in the dead of night. Front Row Motorsports announced an alliance with DEI-Ganassi this week, making them a guaranteed Daytna 500 start, despite the fact that FRM ran only five races last season. JTG Daugherty Racing formed a similar alliance with Michael Waltrip Racing recently, allowing the new team to use owner points accumulated last season by Michael McDowell. Sources tell Sirius Speedway that more owner point transfers will take place this week, as teams jockey to secure guaranteed starting spots in the Daytona 500 and starting berths in Saturday night’s Budweiser Shootout. Throughout our history, RCR has accumulated a total of 16 championships and more than 200 victories across NASCAR’s top three series, including three Daytona 500 wins (1998, 2007, 2018) and three Brickyard 400 victories (1995, 2003, 2011) two of the sport’s crown jewels of competition.
Which team did more for NASCAR Sprint Cup racing last season, and which deserves to be rewarded? About Roush Fenway Racing: Roush Fenway Racing is one of the most successful teams in NASCAR history, fielding multiple teams in NASCAR Cup Series. The manufacturer also captured its third Cup Series manufacturers' championship. Roush-Fenway already fields five Sprint Cup teams for drivers Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth, Greg Biffle, David Ragan and Jamie McMurray. JGR is also represented by IMG Sports Marketing, and Danica tested a Nationwide Series car for the team in 2002. Most importantly, JGR has plenty of room for a fourth Sprint Cup Toyota under NASCAR's four-team cap, and coach Joe Gibbs has long said that he would like to add that fourth car, if the circumstances were right. Tomlinson: I don’t know if any will permanently fold (hopefully none), but Anderson’s team in the Truck Series may be one at risk.
