Dale Earnhardt Jr. Taken Out in Lap 105 Accident

Daytona Beach, Fla – The first half of the 59th annual Daytona 500 was about as clean as it gets. There was just one lone caution through the first 100 laps of the 200 lap event. That made the biggest story of the race at that point the games that were being played on pit stops between manufacturers trying to short pit during the stages. Until Lap 105. Several contenders were involved in an accident in Turn 3 ending the shot of winning for a bunch of the favorites. Kyle…

Chase Elliott Wins the Pole for Next Sunday’s 59th annual Daytona 500

Daytona Beach, Fla – After practice yesterday, it seemed it would be a Ford battle for the pole in Daytona 500 qualifying on Sunday.

Joe Gibbs Racing Has Owned The Clash at Daytona Last Several Years

Daytona Beach, Fla – Outside of Hendrick Motorsports, Joe Gibbs Racing has been the team to beat in Daytona Speedweeks recently. Despite just one Daytona 500 victory since Dale Jarrett went to victory lane in the season opening race in 1993 (Denny Hamlin won a year ago), JGR has dominated the other preliminary events during Speedweeks. Since 2012, JGR has won an astounding nine times during Speedweeks, eight of which occurring in the Can-Am Duels and The Clash combined. In fact, it’s almost a preconceived notion now that a JGR car…

Toyota’s Phenomenal 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Season

The 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season may not have ended the way that Toyota or its talented pool of drivers had hoped it would, with Chevrolet driver Jimmie Johnson hoisting the championship trophy at the Homestead-Miami Speedway on Nov. 20, but the manufacturer can certainly hold its head high after another dominating season in NASCAR’s premiere series. Toyota dominated over its two competing manufacturers, Chevrolet and Ford, in the 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, winning 16 of the season’s 36 races. That’s remarkable.
