“I Said After That Wreck That I’d Never Run A Number That Reads The Same Way When It’s Upside Down,” Foyt Said On Custer’s Throwback Paint Scheme Honoring Him

On Jan. 17, 1965, the No. 00 Vel’s Ford Galaxie of A.J. Foyt became synonymous with true grit and perseverance. And come Sept. 1 in the Sport Clips Haircuts VFW 200 NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway, Cole Custer will pay tribute to Foyt as his No. 00 Haas Automation Ford Mustang from Stewart-Haas Racing with Biagi-DenBeste (SHR) emulates the paint scheme Foyt carried 53 years ago at Riverside (Calif.) International Raceway. It was the NASCAR Grand National Series’ 1965 kickoff at the 2.7-mile road course. Foyt was…

Almirola Narrowly Gets 1st Cup Win With SHR, Instead Settles For 3rd

It’s no secret, Aric Almirola is having a career year in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. Heading into the 2018 season, his first with Stewart-Haas Racing, Almirola, 34, had one win, 11 top five finishes and 32 top 10’s in 244 starts. But, none of those races were run with an organization of SHR’s caliber. After his first 20 races in the No. 10 Ford, Almirola was a 1/2 lap away from winning the Daytona 500 and now a badly timed caution away from another victory in Sunday’s Foxwoods…

Stewart-Haas Racing Quietly Puts All 4 Cars In The Top 12 On Saturday Night

SHR Cars Fast All Day In Chicagoland, Unfortunately Have Problems Occur Too

JOLIET, Ill – Early on in Sunday’s Overton’s 400 at the Chicagoland Speedway, it appeared that Stewart-Haas Racing may get all four cars in the top 10 of the finishing order again. In fact, it even looked as if they could go 1-2-3 at the very least. Clint Bowyer took over the lead on Lap 17 and would lead until Lap 38 when he hit pit road for the first time of the day. Aric Almirola charged up to second while Kurt Busch was running third. That’s when everything started to…

Stewart-Haas Racing Hard To Figure Out This Weekend In Sonoma

We all thought that Stewart-Haas Racing were the ones to beat for Sunday’s Toyota/Save Mart 350. In the last Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race two weeks ago in Michigan, they finished 1-2-3. Furthermore, they’ve won seven of the 15 races in 2018, a series-high. On top of that, SHR has won the last two races at the Sonoma Raceway. Seemed like a no brainer right? Well, so far, it’s anything but.

SHR Leads Both Cup Practices In Sonoma As Field Looks To Be Wide Open

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series had their lone two practice sessions of the weekend on Friday at the Sonoma Raceway. After both practices, it’s safe to say Sunday’s Toyota/Save Mart 350 (3 p.m. ET/FS1/PRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) is as wide open as ever before.

The Stewart-Haas Racing team has to be among the favorites to land in victory lane on Saturday night at the Kansas Speedway.

Dover Has Been Feast or Famine For Stewart-Haas Racing Drivers Lately

Depending on how you look at it, Sunday’s AAA 400 Drive For Autism (2 p.m. ET/FS1/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) could be a very good thing or a very bad thing for the Stewart-Haas Racing camp. The reason why, is because the Dover International Speedway has been feast or famine for them over the last few years. Normally, you would think Kevin Harvick would be the favorite at Dover right? He finished second and first respectively at the Monster Mile in 2015. Well since? His best finish is ninth in this very…
