A wrap of Skittles will do it.
I try not to buy too much into the "models" the manufacturers use given what an illusion it is, but a Supra would be a nice touch. Anything done to get away from the "We're racing family sedans!" marketing approach is a step in the right direction. For a while I thought they were going to end up pitting Escapes against Siennas.
They do that every day in the rush hour..the station wagon derby
Looks pretty bad ass to me. (just sayin)
Seems like GTE. Especially being marketed under Gazoo.
That thing should be racing alongside the Camaro, Mustang and Charger in Cup.
5 o'clock 500 as Alabama called
For anyone who doesn't get the reference
This is what ISM, the new title sponsor for Phoenix Raceway, does. Not creepy at all.
No, not at all. Makes you wonder about all the other things that are going on out there. Me anyway.
Thanks. I'd asked over on the Phoenix Bonehead discussion about what they did. Now I know.
I dunno why they'd bother scanning all those empty seats.
The NASCAR version would look nothing like that sadly. I wish we did have cars that looked different out there. Surely there are other ways of offsetting any aerodynamic advantages one may have over the other. (More short tracks is the best way of accomplishing this)
The Busch Beer Pole Award is back, Yay
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (March 14, 2018) - NASCAR and Anheuser-Busch announced today a multi-year agreement that welcomes the global brand back as an Official Partner and designates Busch Beer as the "Official Beer of NASCAR®." The new partnership builds upon Busch's industry-wide presence and includes sponsorship of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series™ Busch Pole Award, rewarding the driver with the fastest qualifying time each week.
"We are continuing to evolve our presence in NASCAR because we believe in the power and loyalty of NASCAR fans," said Chelsea Phillips, Vice President, Value and Beyond Beer brands, Anheuser-Busch. "Returning as the Official Beer of NASCAR strengthens our deep-rooted history in the sport and will provide fans with even more opportunities to enjoy a crisp, cold Busch beer on race day."
Anheuser-Busch's history in NASCAR dates back decades to 1978, when it sponsored the Busch Pole Award. Additionally, Busch was the "Official Beer of NASCAR" from 1988 through 1997. Beginning in 1998, Anheuser-Busch sponsored the Bud Pole Award through its Budweiser brand, which also became the "Official Beer of NASCAR" through 2007.
"The Busch Pole Award is one of the most recognized programs in NASCAR and partnering with a global marketer like Anheuser-Busch will further elevate the value of the program and our sport," said Lou Garate, Vice President, Partnership, NASCAR. "Anheuser-Busch has a storied history in NASCAR dating back to the 1970s and we know our fans will celebrate and support Busch's return as the 'Official Beer of NASCAR.'"
The Anheuser-Busch sponsored Pole Awards were awarded to many of NASCAR's most iconic drivers. Geoff Bodine won the last Busch Pole Award at Atlanta Motor Speedway in 1997. In 2007, Jimmie Johnson won the last Anheuser-Busch sponsored Pole Award (Bud Pole Award) at Homestead-Miami Speedway, the same race he won his second championship.
Competitors can become eligible for the Busch Pole Award beginning this weekend at Auto Club Speedway. At the end of the season, drivers who accumulate the most Busch Pole Awards in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series are awarded the season-ending Busch Pole Award.
As part of the partnership, Anheuser-Busch joins the NASCAR Fuel for Business Council®, bringing together an exclusive group of more than 50 NASCAR Official Partners to buy and sell products and services from one another.

Was pumping gas today , and looked over and it was Steve O’Donnell lol.. I asked him how the year was going so far and he said NASCAR is doing good.. he also told me to get ready for the ALL STAR race lol.. he wouldn’t tell me anymore but he just kept saying that haha.. he was even driving a Toyota lol..
the Toyota. probably grey color.
Nope some kind of black Toyota suv lol.. it was ugly and small
I really would expect nothing else from O'Donnel, doesn't seem like a car guy at all.
I’m surprised he wasn’t driving a Chrysler product what with them returning to the series at any moment.
They're probably going to toss out some new gimmick. Maybe eight 10-lap segments with the even-numbered cars changing direction after every segment while the odd-numbers have to run in reverse. Or something involving Jell-O.
nope just a small toyato suv lol
i hope not hahaha
I'm not shocked at all that he was driving a Toyota.
Run the ROVAL? They got rid of the option tire this year so I don't know what else they could try that hasn't been tried already. There's not really anything else about the All-Star Race that would make it worth looking forward to 2 months out.
Heck if I ever won a hypothetical race called the Tarantula 200 I wouldn't be anywhere near what they want me to hold.
They didnt really make a difference that I recall.
I liked the Survival of the Fastest format that they ran in (I think) 2002.
south boston, oh the memories !
Probably a silly question, but does Iowa Speedway ever sell out either the Xfinity race or the truck race? I asked off work that weekend and I am considering taking the drive there because it's the third closest track to me and I've never been. I ask because I don't plan on buying tickets in advance just in case of rain.
Jeffrey Earnhardt, StarCom Racing agree to part ways amid rough start
Read some of the FB comments, it makes you realize how insane Earnhardt lovers are.
Jeffery is and was never the answer, he was a quick buck to produce a buzz. StarCom needs a half decent driver, but Cope and Earnhardt are not the answer.
No driver is the answer if they can't put a decent car on the track.
