Posts Tagged ‘Sprint Cup Series’

February 20, 2013              1:32 PM ET

Clint Bowyer just settled into his seat for Daytona 500 Media Day and finished answering the first question when an event organizer announced that Dale Earnhardt Jr. had arrived.

“Oh, there goes my interview,” Bowyer said with a laugh. “Thank you guys it’s been a great talk. See you next year.”

But when it comes to compelling stories, Bowyer has one to tell.

The 33-year-old Emporia, Kansas native will start his eighth season in NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series. After eight years with Richard Childress Racing in Cup and Nationwide, Bowyer moved to Michael Waltrip Racing for 2012 and enjoyed his best season to date.

Throughout the Chase for the Sprint Cup, Bowyer’s accomplishments were overshadowed as Brad Keselowski and Jimmie Johnson battled it out for the title. But the No. 15 team remained in the hunt during the final 10 races.

When Johnson experienced a gear issue in the season finale at Miami Homestead Speedway, Bowyer capitalized and finished second in the point standings.

For Bowyer, it was a pleasant surprise. No one anticipated that when Bowyer left RCR, long considered one of the anchor organizations of NASCAR, he would not only post a career-high three wins, 10 top-fives and 23 top-10 finishes let alone become the runner-up for the championship.

“Thanks,” Bowyer replied in a self-deprecatory manner as he’s reminded what the initial outlook was for the No. 15 team at the start of last year. Yet with the investment that co-owner Rob Kauffman made with the team, including the upgrades in personnel and technology over the last few years, it has elevated MWR into one of the elite operations in the sport.
Through Bowyer’s past experiences at RCR, he is cognizant of the potential for complacency after a successful season. And after committing himself to the organization, Bowyer warns of falling into that trap in his current situation.

“We had a great year last year,” Bowyer said. “Right now in 2013, the year doesn’t mean anything. We’ve got to prove ourselves all over again and it’s even harder this time. Nobody expected us to do that. We didn’t have any pressure and we didn’t have any expectations. We just went out and had fun and enjoyed every week and just naturally or effortlessly had success week in and week out.

“It is different now. We’ve got expectations — not from you guys (the media), not from the fans, but from within. We expect to do that and I’ve been around long enough to know that can be a danger.”

Another “danger” that has plagued runner-ups over the last few years has been the second-place hangover. For drivers that exerted tremendous energy to make the Chase and contend for the title, the challenge has been to amass an equal amount of fight the following year. For Bowyer, finishing second last year was anything but a letdown.

“People call it a jinx – whatever,” Bowyer said. “Here’s the thing, any kind of sport – pick the Olympics. A guy trains his whole life, especially the years leading up to it and finishes second. That’s a huge letdown. We had nothing to be ashamed of to finish in second place.

“There was just one great thing after another happening at MWR last year. We won races with a team built from scratch over the offseason. Went into a team that had never been proven before and went out and proved a big point. We finished second in the points and had one bad weekend over the whole year — truly had one bad weekend that just sucked. I’ll take that any day. I will sign up for that right now.”

That weekend – at Phoenix where he was dumped by four-time champion Jeff Gordon, who accused Bowyer of racing him too hard – earned the driver of the No. 15 Toyota Camry more recognition than his accomplishments on the track. While the feud still looms, Bowyer would just as soon leave the incident in the rearview mirror and concentrate on 2013.

On Thursday, Bowyer will start ninth in the second Budweiser Duel. While he’s proved his restrictor plate prowess with two wins at Talladega, Bowyer’s not equaled that success at Daytona where he’s posted just two top-five finishes in 14 starts.

Still, Bowyer appears encouraged by the progress MWR has made with the new Generation 6 Toyota Camry.

“Certainly, we’re going to work hard,” Bowyer said. “I like the things I’ve seen. I like the testing. Daytona – our car was fast and more importantly we went to Charlotte and intermediate race tracks and had good speed right off the truck. The very first time I was ever in a car – one of the Gen-6 cars on an intermediate track was at Charlotte and we went right to the top of the board and was there the whole morning session. I was like, ‘Put it back in the box and let’s go racing.’ That showed me that hopefully we picked up right where we left off.”

After MWR qualified two drivers – Bowyer and Martin Truex Jr. – for the Chase last season, team owner Michael Waltrip acknowledges that the questions he answers now regarding his organization “are a lot more fun” than the inquisition he received prior to 2012’s successful run.

“It seems like we’re more respected,” Waltrip said. “I don’t think if we just bounced in and had 2012 right off the bat that we would have gained that type of respect. We worked really hard to be able to enjoy some success in 2012.

“Our teams appear to be on plane with the best. So we just expect to win more races than we did last year and race for the championship this year.”

Austin-Dillon-HNC-Announcement-590x260

February 20, 2013            10:22 AM

Although this year’s Daytona 500 marks Dillon’s first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series attempt at DIS, the Welcome, N.C., driver has a pair of top-five finishes at the 2.5-mile restrictor-plate track in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. He finished fifth in February 2012 and fourth in July 2012. In addition, He has two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts at the track with a best finish of 20th in 2011.

Welcome, Buzz … Dillon’s pal Buzz, the official SpokesBee of Honey Nut Cheerios, will be featured on the hood of the No. 33 Chevrolet for the Great American Race. This marks the fifth year of Richard Childress Racing’s partnership with General Mills, which is a major associate sponsor throughout the year in the Sprint Cup Series on the No. 31 Cheerios Chevrolet and driver Jeff Burton. Cheerios, America’s No.1 cereal franchise, debuted in 1941 as Cheerioats. The nation’s first ready-to-eat oat cereal has since become one of the most trusted and recognized brands in America. In fact, one of every eight boxes of cereal sold in America is a box of Cheerios. General Mills’ popular franchise includes Cheerios, Honey Nut Cheerios, Multi Grain Cheerios, Multi Grain Cheerios, Peanut Butter Cheerios, Chocolate Cheerios, Frosted Cheerios, Apple Cinnamon Cheerios, Cinnamon Burst Cheerios, Fruity Cheerios, Dulce de Leche Cheerios, Yogurt Burst Cheerios and Banana Nut Cheerios.

Dillon’s DRIVE4COPD … Dillon’s paternal grandfather, Stan Dillon, passed away following a battle with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary disease (COPD) in May 2012, sparking Dillon to partner with the COPD foundation to encourage all Americans aged 35 or older to log onto http://www.drive4copd.org/screener to take a brief, five-question screener to see if they might be at risk for COPD, a serious and progressive lung disease that is the third leading cause of death of Americans.If the screener indicates risk, patients are encouraged to take the next step and speak with their healthcare professional or call the C.O.P.D. Information Line (1-866-316-2673) to discuss what their score may mean. Because COPD is a progressive disease that causes irreversible lung damage, early diagnosis and disease management are critical to helping patients breathe better in the future.

Time to Duel … The Budweiser Duels at Daytona feature two 150-mile races from which the majority of the final starting grid for the Daytona 500 will be set. By virtue of qualifying 16th in last Sunday’s qualifying session, Dillon will start eighth in the second of the two qualifying races on Thursday, Feb. 21.

Double Duty … In addition to competing at Daytona International Speedway in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series this weekend, Dillon is scheduled to drive the No. 3 AdvoCare Chevrolet in the NASCAR Nationwide Series race on Saturday, Feb. 23. The Daytona Nationwide Series race kicks off a season-long campaign in which Dillon plans to battle for the 2013 Driver’s Title after earning Rookie-of-the-Year honors and finishing third in the final Driver’s Championship Point Standings in 2012. The DRIVE4COPD300 is live on ESPN at 1 p.m. ET on Saturday.

Off Season … Dillon has spent much of the off season hunting throughout the U.S., traveling to locations such as Texas, Kansas, Georgia and Montana to hunt with friends and family members.

AUSTIN DILLON QUOTES:

This will be your first Daytona 500. What does that mean to you?

“The prestige that this race holds and being out here and being able to watch some of RCR’s guys go to Victory Lane throughout the years and be in Victory Lane to celebrate with them has really helped me appreciate the race and made me even more excited to participate myself. It’s just awesome to be able to fire the engine and try and make this race. It’s just a great opportunity and I can’t wait until Sunday comes.”
What did you learn during NASCAR Sprint Cup Series testing in January that might help you here at Daytona International Speedway for the Daytona 500 this weekend?

“Drafting. It was pretty good to be able to get out there and run near the other drivers and see what the cars handled like. The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series cars didn’t handle as well as the NASCAR Nationwide Series cars. There’s just so much more power and less downforce. We’re out there and it’s going to be wild. You have to be able to be there at the end to make something happen. I think that’s what all of these races come down to. I think we are going to have a shot just like anybody else once we get into the race.”

4:43p.m. EST             February 14, 2013

Michael Waltrip, NASCAR and Swan Racing are teaming up to help bring eyeballs and attention to helping the community of Newtown, Conn., through the Sandy Hook School Support Fund.

Two-time Daytona 500 champion Waltrip will drive the No. 26 Toyota for Swan Racing in the race on Feb. 24, in honor of the 26 victims of the Sandy Hook shooting. His car will carry a decal that will remind fans and race viewers they can text donations to NEWTOWN to 80888.

The effort came about after officials from NASCAR, Swan Racing and Waltrip traveled to Newtown to meet with leaders in the community, first responders and families of the 26 victims.

Waltrip said that going to Newtown and shaking hands and hugging people that were directly affected was an amazing experience. He added that it was very fulfilling to be able to make the people in that community smile and give them something to look forward to.

“The car is beautiful and they loved it,” Waltrip said Thursday at NASCAR Media Day. “They were in disbelief that people would care enough to do what we’re going to do for them.

“As happens a lot in life with me, I felt like actually thanking them for allowing me to come into their world and allowing us to do this. They wanted to thank us for doing it, and that’s a great feeling.”

All monies from the fund, which was established by United Way of Western Connecticut and Newtown Savings Bank, will go toward helping the community heal from the events of Dec. 14, 2012.

Waltrip also confirmed that all three of his Sprint Cup cars will carry the decal for the Daytona 500, as well.

“Driving the No. 26 Sandy Hook School Support Fund Toyota is like nothing I have ever been part of in my NASCAR career,” Waltrip said. “It will be an emotional week knowing that we have the potential to do so much good for the Newtown community. I’m racing for a reason.”

CEO Brian France and his wife announced they will donate $50,000, which the NASCAR Foundation will match.

“That’s $100,000 already, and we just started,” Waltrip said. “And I know our 75 million fans will rally around texting “NEWTOWN” to 80888. We can make a real difference.”

France said he was excited to witness firsthand the NASCAR’s community’s embrace and support of the Sandy Hook School Support Fund.

“Being in Newtown last week and delivering a moment of happiness to that community was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced,” said France. “Looking out at a room of smiling faces amidst the aftermath of a horrible tragedy was very powerful. It hit me that the NASCAR industry and our passionate fan base have an unbelievable opportunity to rally around this cause and make a huge difference for a community in need.”

Juan Pablo Montoya and No. 42 Target Team:

Keep the Momentum Rolling: Juan Pablo Montoya recently returned to Victory Lane at Daytona International Speedway in the Rolex 24 At Daytona with teammates Scott Pruett, Memo Rojas and Charlie Kimball. The victory marked the third win for Montoya and Rojas, and the first milestone win for Kimball in the Rolex 24 At Daytona. The win was the fifth for Chip Ganassi Racing Teams (CGRT) in 10 appearances at the twice-around-the-clock endurance race and the fifth for Pruett, who now ties Hurley Haywood’s record for overall victories in the Rolex 24 At Daytona. Montoya drove the final stint and prevailed in a battle of splash-and-go fuel stops in the closing minutes to beat the second-place team to the checkered flag by 21.922 seconds.

Where he Stands: Montoya returns for his seventh full NSCS season at Earnhardt Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates (EGR) in the No. 42 Target Chevrolet. The 2013 season brings about the return of Target who celebrates their 12th year in the NSCS with Chip Ganassi. Chris “Sunshine” Heroy will return for his second season as crew chief on the No. 42 Chevrolet. In addition to the introduction of the new Gen 6 cars, EGR made a change to Hendrick Motors during the offseason.

Year in Review: In 2012, Montoya finished the season 22nd in the NSCS point standings. He accumulated two pole positions and two top-10 finishes during the season. The Target driver had an average starting position of 22.3 and an average finishing position of 21.7 with five DNF’s (did not finish).

Superspeedway Review: In 24 superspeedway starts in NSCS competition Montoya has a best finish of second (Talladega, 2008) three top-fives and seven top-10 finishes with 77 laps led. Team Target unfortunately did not finish a superspeedway race in the 2012 season due to unforeseen accidents and a motor problem.

Unlimited History: Montoya returns to the 35th running of the newly named Sprint Unlimited for the fourth time in his career. Last year, Montoya started last and finished in the top-10 after overcoming an early incident to drive the No. 42 to the 10th position. In six starts, the Target car has never placed outside of the top-20.

Top Dog at Daytona: Bullseye the loveable target mascot will be on hand at the Daytona 500. Bullseye is making the Daytona 500 her first ever NASCAR race! This is a once in a life time opportunity for this very special terrier.

100th Victory: Montoya is hoping to give Target and Chip Ganassi Racing Victory 100 if he wins the Daytona 500. This will be a momentous occasion for Target as they enter in their 7th season with Juan Montoya and its 24th with Chip Ganassi.

Driver Highlights:
· Montoya will enter his seventh full-time year in the NSCS in 2013 with Target returning as the sponsor

· Montoya is coming off of his recent win in the Rolex 24 At Daytona. It marks his third win in the endurance race as he joined teammates Scott Pruett, Memo Rojas and Charlie Kimball

· Only Latino, only Formula 1 driver, and only Indianapolis 500 winner to make the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup
· Three wins and nine poles in his stock car career (ARCA, Nationwide, NASCAR) with 22 top-five and 55 top-10 results in 242 combined starts. 1,061 laps led.
· One of only three drivers to win in Formula 1, IndyCar and NASCAR Sprint Cup (Dan Gurney and Mario Andretti).

Barreling towards the checkered flag, Greg Biffle was running second in the Sprint Unlimited and closing rapidly on leader Kevin Harvick – seemingly destined to win the first NASCAR race of the season.

But just as quickly, Harvick slid up the track and blocked Biffle’s charge and in the process cutting off his momentum and pulling away for the victory.

Biffle settled for second.

Surprisingly, afterward, Biffle wasn’t angry about Harvick’s bold tactic and had no issue with how Harvick raced him on the final lap.

“I thought about sticking it in there and it just didn’t look like it was going to work to me,” Biffle said Saturday at Daytona International Speedway. “It looked like it would be sparks and parts flying. He shut the door on the top. That is what Kevin needed to do to win the race.”

At one point the Roush Fenway Racing driver was pretty certain he and Harvick were going to make contact on that final lap, calling it “borderline” whether the two were going to crash.

“He was going to go up against the fence,” Biffle said. “I have been there a hundred times. There is no way that move was going to work.”

In the battle of risk vs. reward, Biffle chose to be cautious and try and regroup. However, without a drafting partner there was no way he was going to be able to pass Harvick by himself.

“I looked in the mirror and didn’t have anyone pushing me,” he said. “I figured someone might give me a shove and I could try something else. …I was still against his bumper and was going to try to go to the bottom but there was nobody behind me at that point. These cars get separated pretty quick.”

February 16, 2013

In two of the most important practices of the year, it’d be two young drivers topping the charts at the end of each session.

Joey Logano, who made the switch from Joe Gibbs Racing to Penske Racing over the off-season, topped the first session with a speed of 195.410 mph. He has been working at gaining that solid relationship with his new crew chief.

“I think like any other relationship you have to work at it,” he said. “Whether it is a work relationship or if you are dating some girl, you have to work at that stuff. That is just part of life. You have to have someone that understands that and is willing to work on things that maybe seem goofy but will help you in the high pressure situations and trying to win a race and need to make a quick decision.”

Rookie Austin Dillon was second on the charts, seven one-hundredths off of Logano. Fellow rookie Danica Patrick was third, followed by Jeff Burton and Kasey Kahne.

In the second session, it’d be Danica Patrick topping the charts in her Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet as she begins her first full Cup Series season. She timed in at a speed of 196.220 mph.

“We’re trying to be smart. …Trying to be as accurate as possible,” she said following the second practice of the day. “I think so far, so good at Daytona. This is a testament to how consistent the (new) car is.”

Team owner Tony Stewart was second on the speed charts, timing in at 195.363 mph. Kyle Busch was third, followed by Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jamie McMurray. Logano was ninth on the charts in the second session.

The only driver running into problems was Juan Pablo Montoya, who blew an engine midway through his second practice session..

“We will change the motor and give it a good go tomorrow in qualifying,” said the driver of the No. 42 Target Chevrolet. “I think tonight is going to be a fun night and just looking forward to the (Daytona) 500.”
