NASCAR's Weekday Winners

2020.02.18 23:56 DBTornado NASCAR's Weekday Winners

Inspired by a thread by u/patmal_8 this is a list of the drivers most successful at winning on the weekdays. The stats are compiled using the date of the race as given on Racing Reference, and runs during what is considered NASCAR's Modern Era, 1972 to Present.
It is important to note that from 1972 through 1983 the Southern 500 was run on Mondays, and from 1972 through 1987 the Firecracker 400 was run on July 4th no matter what day that was. This skews the data a bit.
Most Weekday Wins (Active drivers in Bold):
David Pearson: 7 - All of these came in either the Firecracker 400 or Southern 500.
Cale Yarborough: 6 - All but one of these (Pocono 1979) came in the Southern 500. All six of his Weekday wins came on Monday.
Bobby Allison: 4 - All came in Southern 500 or Firecracker 400
Denny Hamlin: 4 - Leads active drivers, leads all drivers post 1987 when Daytona moved to July 4th Weekend. Each has come at a different track: Pocono, Martinsville, Texas, Daytona.
Richard Petty: 3
Jeff Gordon: 3
Neil Bonnett, Geoffery Bodine, Bobby Hamilton, Jimmie Johnson, Martin Truex, Kurt Busch, Tony Stewart, Joey Logano, Matt Kenseth: 2
Darrell Waltrip, Greg Sacks, Tim Richmond, Buddy Baker, Terry Labonte, Rusty Wallace, Ken Schrader, Harry Gant, Bobby Labonte, Jeff Burton, Jeremy Mayfield, Jerry Nadeau, Steve Park, Ricky Craven, Kasey Kahne, Carl Edwards, David Reutimann, Marcos Ambrose, Chris Buescher, Clint Bowyer, Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski, Ryan Blaney: 1
Kurt Busch is the only active driver with a Tuesday win. David Pearson, Jeff Gordon, and Kurt Busch are the only drivers to win races run on a Tuesday.
David Pearson, Neil Bonnett, and Richard Petty are the only Wednesday winners.
Cale Yarborough and Greg Sacks are the only Thursday winners.
Richard Petty, Tim Richmond, and Robby Gordon are the only Friday winners.
Years with no Weekday Winners: 1988-1990, 1993-1996, 2004-2005, 2013, 2015.
There were no weekday winners from Watkins Glen 1987 (Rusty Wallace) until Atlanta I in 1991 (Ken Schrader)
There were no weekday winners from North Wilkesboro II 1992 (Geoffrey Bodine) to Martinsville II 1997 (Jeff Burton)
Geoffrey Bodine is the only drive to win Weekday Races in consecutive weeks, North Wilkesboro II and Martinsville II in 1992.
Denny Hamlin (2010) and Geoffrey Bodine (1992) are the only drivers to win 2 Weekday Races in the same year.
From Pocono I 2000 (Jeremy Mayfield) until Martinsville 1 2010 (Denny Hamlin) each weekday race had a different winner. The only driver to win their second weekday race during that time was Jeff Gordon, who had won his first in 1999.
No year has produced more than 3 weekday winners. (1977, 1979, 2001, 2009, 2011, 2018, 2019)
Matt Kenseth 2012 Daytona 500: Race started on Monday, ended early hours Tuesday.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. 2015 Firecracker 400: Race started on Sunday, ended early hours Monday.
Erik Jones: 2019 Southern 500: Race started on Sunday, ended early hours Monday.
I pulled all of this Racing Reference and basically checked the date they had against a calendar from that year. This was actually really fun to research. I welcome any comments and corrections, thanks for reading!

2020.01.27 15:25 nfulks1996 Ranking the Drivers of the #43 Since Richard Petty's Retirement

Since the retirement of Richard Petty in 1992, and it's return in 1994 the famous #43 has been through a few ups, and many downs through the years. Some years seeming worse than others. Despite this, the #43 and Richard Petty's team has soldiered on into the 2020's.
But how has the drivers who have driven the #43 performed in the 28 years since the King hung up his helmet after the 1992 Hooters 500? I'm going to attempt to rank the 8 drivers who have driven the #43 for a full season, therefore Wally Dallenbach, Christian Fittpaldi, Shane Hmiel, and a few others won't be mentioned.
#8 - Reed Sorenson: Reed Sorenson is the only driver to have ever driven the #43 for just one season, and it was a forgetable one in 2009. Sorenson had just one top-10 finish, and it was the Daytona 500. Not much else can be said as Sorenson was nothing but forgettable in the #43.
#7 - Jeff Green: Jeff Green wasn't the worst choice to drive the #43 in 2004. But Jeff Green didn't really do much, earning one top-10 in two seasons. Jeff Green only edges Sorenson due to Sorenson having been part of a team that fielded competitive cars for Kasey Kahne and AJ Allmendinger. Jeff Green did not.
#6 - Bubba Wallace: Bubba Wallace came along at the lowest point of the #43's competition level and overall funding level. Despite this, Bubba has proven several times that he drive the wheels off the #43 with the 2019 Brickyard 400 being the best example of this. Hopefully 2020 can bring the #43 back to it's competitive days.
#5 - John Andretti: John Andretti edges Bubba Wallace simply because John Andretti found his way to Victory Lane in 1999, and had a solid 1998 campaign finishing 11th in points and having 3 top-5's and 10 top-10's. From 2000-2003, Andretti and the #43 were a rolling dumpster fire that really brought down the prestige of the #43.
#4 -AJ Allmendinger: I really wanted Allmendinger to be higher. I really did. But, AJ only drove the #43 for two seasons and finished with 2 top-5's and 17 top-10's with points finishes of 19th in 2010 and 15th in 2011. Allmendinger really help the team rebound after the horrible Reed Sorenson season with his solid seasons.
#3 - Bobby Labonte: Bobby Labonte steady driving and intuition of a champion proved to be vital in the revival of the #43 after the dumpster fire of 2000-2003, and the lackluster Jeff Green years. Much like the two prior entries, Labonte brought stability to the #43, never finishing worse than 21st in the standings, and seemed to have the #43 on the right track, as the 2000 champion tried to get all he could out of a near death Petty Enterprises.
#2 - Aric Almirola: From 2012-2017 Aric Almirola brought a sense of much needed stability to the #43. Solid driving, not tearing up equipment, and only having one points finish outside of the top-20's excluding 2017 where Almirola put together a respectable three top-5's and six top-10's in 29 races, Almirola was just what the #43 needed. Oh yeah, and he scored the teams most recent win coming at the 2014 Coke Zero 400, 30 years after the King's final win at the 1984 Pepsi 400.
#1 - Bobby Hamilton: To date, Bobby Hamilton's 9th place points finish in 1996 is the last time the #43 finished top-10 in the standings. Bobby Hamilton is the most recent driver of the #43 to win multiple races, winning at Phoenix in 1996 and Rockingham in 1997. Bobby Hamilton revived the #43 after a disappointing 1994 season, and is the gold standard of #43 drivers post Richard Petty's retirement.

Sorry I've been gone, I've been really busy recently and I probably will be until Christmas break. However, I did finish the 2012 season. It will be a while before 2013 comes out as I have to come up with probably 20-25 schemes as we transition to Gen 6 cars in addition to running the races. Here's a quick summary of what happened
  • David Stremme comes out of nowhere to score two wins at Bristol and Michigan back to back to bump him from 19th to 13th in points, and the two wins gives him an edge in the wild-card race. The Bristol race was a fluke for sure as the leader, Kasey Kahne, decided to pit with 15 laps left and then just sat in his stall (possibly due to losing powenot being able to start). This led to Jeff Gordon taking the lead, but he got spun by the lap down car of Chase Montgomery, but no caution came out. David Stremme would take the lead and hold on to win, but had a more convincing win at Michigan leading 61 of 200 laps to take home the checkered flag. Also during Bristol Clint Bowyer impaled the pit road barrier at high speed, ending his season due to injury. Stephen Leicht, who had been driving the Tommy Baldwin 36 car part time, took over the 31 for the remainder of the season.
Jeff Gordon would get some redemption as he won the next two races in a row, upping his win total to three on the season. He'd finish second at Richmond, beating out Jimmie Johnson by one point to win the regular season title. The winner of Richmond would be Kevin Harvick, scoring Stewart-Haas' first win of 2012. The 2012 chase class would be Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, Adam Petty, Matt Kenseth, Carl Edwards, Kasey Kahne, JJ Yeley, Kyle Busch, Dale Earnhardt Jr and Kevin Harvick. As for the last two spots, Jeff Burton would finish 11th and Tony Stewart 12th. However, both Burton and Stewart had no wins, and lost their spots to David Stremme (who was 15th in points, but his pair of wins allowed him to leapfrog to 11th), and David Ragan (13th in points before the reset with one win). This is the both time either driver has missed the playoffs. Other notable exceptions include AJ Allmendinger (14th before the reset), Brad Keselowski (16th before the reset), Casey Atwood (who missed a race due to injury and had his worst career season since his debut), Denny Hamlin, Ryan Newman, Justin Allagaier, and Jamie McMurray.
Matt Kenseth strikes first in the chase, scoring his fourth win on the season at Dover. David Stremme gets his third win on the year at Talladega in a shocker. Regular season points winner Jeff Gordon chokes during the playoffs, going winless in the final 10 races of the season with a best finish of third and gets fifth in points. Adam Petty scores fourth in points with a pair of wins, his lowest win total since coming to Joe Gibbs. Jimmie Johnson finishes the season third. Carl Edwards had a really solid chase, entering 8th in points but ending up 2nd with a win and six top five finishes during the chase. The 2012 champion would be Matt Kenseth, who won at Homestead to end his season with six wins and 25 top ten's, earning his first Sprint Cup championship. It's Evernham Motorsports' first title since 2005 with Casey Atwood, and second overall. It's also the first time a car #39 has won a championship in NASCAR. Congrats to Matt Kenseth!

2012-2013 Silly Season - https://imgur.com/a/7SBbl0N
Big changes for 2013:
After another average season at Joe Gibbs, Denny Hamlin is surprisingly out of the 11 car. He has scored five wins in the #11 Fedex Chevy/Toyota between 2006 and 2012. After six years, Hamlin leaves Joe Gibbs and will get a new coat of paint at Earnhardt-Childress Racing, where he will pilot the 31 car with FedEx joining along.
Kyle Busch is one of the biggest shocks of the silly season as he moves to the Joe Gibbs 11. He has had a really respectable run with Hendrick Motorsports, picking up an (ironic) 11 victories between 2005 and 2012 between the 84 and 25 rides. Busch starts a new chapter of his career at the 11 team and hopes to stand out. This is a pretty unusual move as the two teams he is switching between are equilateral in strength, with the 11 arguably being worse than the 25 considering the 11 team has made the chase once since its 2007 inception while the 25 has made it all but one year.
Martin Truex Jr gets a big opportunity, moving from the Yates 38 to the Hendrick 25 replacing Kyle Busch. The former Nationwide champion has a big opportunity, with only one cup win so far to date.
Clint Bowyer departs the 31 after a few rather unsuccessful seasons. He's been really solid in terms of consistency, but only scored a single victory in four years. He heads to the Turner 32, replacing the retiring Bobby Labonte. This is somewhat of a downward move but Turner has been looking to expand their Cup presence and after their first win this seems possible.
Danica Patrick starts her first full time season in the Cup series, piloting the #41 GoDaddy/Haas Chevy for Stewart-Haas Racing.

Before I start I forgot to mention that Ron Hornaday, Jr won the 2011 Truck title beating out Timothy Peters and Austin Dillion while Ricky Stenhouse was able to fend off Scott Wimmer and Trevor Bayne to win the 2011 Nationwide title. Full details to come in a more concise recap of multiple seasons down the line.
Also, I will be experimenting with a different presentation format here that hopefully doesn't take me 2-3 hours to type out.
2012 Pt 1
Race 1/36: The 2012 Daytona 500 saw several 2-3 car crashes but no big ones. Denny Hamlin notably blew an engine on lap one to end his day early. The biggest wreck took place on lap 25 of 200 as Brian Vickers (in his return race), Danica Patrick, Juan Pablo Montoya, Jimmie Johnson, and Kasey Kahne got together with all cars recieving moderate damage and Montoya retiring. With 16 to go, a crash between Kevin Harvick, Ryan Newman, and David Stremme stacked up the field that was going through its last set of pitstops. This led to only five cars being on the lead lap - Matt Kenseth, Landon Cassill, Tony Stewart, 2011 '500 winner Dale Jr, and the leader would be none other than Ricky Stenhouse Jr in his third Cup race. Cassill would take the white flag and look to win in just his eighth cup race but was passed by Matt Kenseth. Kenseth would hold on to put the 39 in victory lane, earning his first Daytona 500 win and Evernham Motorsports' first since its debut 11 years ago. Cassill would take second, with Jr, Stewart, and Stenhouse rounding out the top five.
Race 2/36: After entering the race with a winless streak dating back to New Hampshire 2010, David Ragan was able to park his #16 Ford in victory lane for a feel-good win
Race 4/36: Roush Racing's fortunes continue as Carl Edwards wins the next two races, preforming his patened back flip at Las Vegas and Atlanta
Race 6/36: Jimmie Johnson responds and takes the points lead from Edwards with back-to-back wins of his own at Bristol and Darlington.
Race 7/36: Aric Almirola and Justin Allagaier get career high finishes of 6th and 8th as Matt Kenseth scores win #2 of 2012. In seven races, there have been four unique winners, the lowest amount since 1999.
Race 9/36: The next two races see minor upsets take place. Justin Allagaier wins in just his 8th career Cup start, piloting his #12 Dodge to an emotional first victory at Phoenix by holding off Adam Petty. AJ Allmendinger would then beat out Tony Stewart by .09 at Talledega to take the win.
Race 10/36: Adam Petty puts himself on the board, leading 142 of 500 laps at Martinsville to win. Jimmie Johnson wrecks at this race and slides down to third in points, giving Carl Edwards the points lead with a 5th place run and Adam Petty moves to second in points with his win.
Race 11/36: The 2012 Coca-Cola 600 sees a lot of surprises. Denny Hamlin went winless in 2011 and after a poor start to 2012 was considered by many to be on the hot seat at Joe Gibbs. However, he silenced the critics by leading 82 laps and holding off Jeff Burton to win at Lowe's. Mike Bliss, piloting the #34 Front Row Motorsports Ford, was somehow able to finish third. Bliss has silently been having a fantastic season, as he qualified for all of the first five races and was able to put himself in the top 35 in owners points for the first time in FRM's history, guaranteeing them a ride for every race. A bad wreck here also sees Casey Atwood flip over, he has to sit out a week with a pulled hamstring and Evernham development driver Timothy Peters substitutes the following race with a solid 14th place run.
Race 14/36: Jimmie Johnson, Kasey Kahne, and Jimmie Johnson would win the next three races as Johnson put himself back in front of the points standings. Adam Petty DNF's two of the races, entering this stretch 3rd in points and exiting 7th.
Race 16/36: Joe Gibbs scores back-to-back wins with JJ Yeley and Adam Petty recording victories at Pocono and Watkins Glen .
Race 17/36: The Pepsi 400 bears witness to the biggest upset since Jerry Nadeau's Daytona 500 win. Coming to the white flag, Juan Pablo Montoya was in front and looked to break a two-year winless streak, but Reed Sorenson's 47 would be pushed to the front by his old team, Bobby Labonte in the 32. Labonte would get around Sorenson on the backstretch and edge out the 47 in a photo finish. It would be Braun Racing's first win and Bobby Labonte's first win since 2007, ending a five year winless streak. Sorenson would take second, his best career finish but rather heartbreaking since he was beat out by the team that released him last season.
Race 18/36: Kevin Harvick dominates, but Earnhardt-Childress Racing snaps a small winless streak dating back to Brad Keselowski's Brickyard win 33 races ago with Dale Jr winning off of fuel milage at Kentucky. Carl Edwards blows an engine right at the start of the race and fails to complete a lap, bumping him from second to fourth in points.
Currently, four-win Jimmie Johnson holds a large point lead over teammate Jeff Gordon, who has no wins but has finished every race 21st or better. Jeff Burton holds third and is in a similar position, no wins but hella consistency. Carl Edwards is five points behind Burton at fourth despite being in the top 3 most the season with a pair of wins, while Daytona 500 winner Matt Kenseth is the top Dodge at fifth. Teammates JJ Yeley and Adam Petty are tied for 6th, with Petty's midseason woes keeping him out of the top three. Tony Stewart, Kasey Kahne, and Kevin Harvick round out the top ten.
In the wildcard spot, Dale Jr has a win and holds 11th 30 points behind Harvick, while Brad Keselowski is the best winless driver outside the top 10 at 12th. Jamie McMurray and Kyle Busch hold 13th and 14th, but are so far behind 10th they're in must win situations while AJ Allmendinger at 15th would be the final wildcard driver if the chase started today. Justin Allagier, David Ragan, and Denny Hamlin also hold wins but sit 17th, 18th, and a dismal 22nd in points for Hamlin. Other stories this seasion include an absolute garbage run for Casey Atwood, who seems to have not completely recovered from his week 11 injury. He sits 21st in points with 1 top 5 and 3 top 10's after 17 races and is basically eliminated from the playoffs barring a late comeback. Mike Bliss, meanwhile, has exceeded expectations. The former JGR driver has had a really solid season with Front Row Motorsports, putting the 34 car not only in the top 35 in owners points but 25th in regular season points (currently ahead of Joey Logano in a Joe Gibbs Toyota, Juan Pablo Montoya, Landon Cassill, and Greg Biffle). Youngsters Landon Cassill and Joey Logano started off 2012 hot with top fives in the first and second race, consecutively, but since then the drivers of the 5 and 15 rides have combined for two top 5's and six top 10's.

2013 Silly Season
NASCAR has confirmed they will be moving to a new Gen 6 body starting in 2013! (This will mean that it will take a while to create the cars on the Gen 6 mod)
Clint Bowyer has reportedly been on the hot seat at Earnhardt-Childress Racing. He won the 2007 Busch series title with them, but since then has only scored one Cup victory and that was three years ago. Although it's clear the team is not as strong as it used to be. Bowyer might need a new ride to revitalize his career.
Big news as Jeremy Mayfield announces his retirement from the Cup series following 2012. The 2004 Daytona 500 winner has picked up 8 wins in his Cup career, but hasn't been a factor on the track since the decline of BD2 Motorsports. It's been a great career for Mayfield, and this leaves a spot open at BD2 Motorsports with their #22 Toyota.
The reports are true: Danica Patrick will be running for ROTY in 2013, piloting the #41 Stewart-Haas Chevy. It's a big story as Danica becomes the first female driver in a competitive ride, well, since forever. GoDaddy jumps ship from Hendrick Motorsports to sponsor 30 of 36 races with Haas covering the other six. Landon Cassill was able to score a new sponsor in Farmers' Insurance for 2013, however. No word on current driver Aric Almirola's future in NASCAR.
Michael Waltrip Motorsports is reportedly cleaning house at the end of 2012. It is rumored that all three of their drivers - Michael McDowell, Kurt Busch, and Paul Menard could be gone at years end. The team has gotten off to a slow start since becoming full time in 2007, recording their lone win with Paul Menard in 2009 at Talladega. Firing Kurt Busch would be shocking, considering he put the 55 in top 35 in owners points and is basically carrying MWR talent wise, but he's had ego and behavioral problems that have gotten him booted from better rides. Perhaps a reset is what MWR needs to change its Cup fortunes.

Casey Atwood, who had a mediocre 2011 up till this point, was able to snap a small winless streak with a win at New Hampshire to start off the second of the season. Pocono would see a stunning upset unfold with Greg Biffle winning a rain-delayed event, the first victory for the #43 since the 2003 Daytona 500 8 years ago and Biffle's first win since 2003 as well. The streak of first-time winners on the season would continue as Brad Keselowski kissed the bricks for his first win since the 2009 miracle win he had at Atlanta. Carl Edwards would score at Bristol despite Casey Atwood leading 210 laps. Evernham would see a bright stop the following weeek, though, with AJ Allmendinger scoring his first career win at Infineon. Atwood's second-half resurgence would continue by passing Jimmie Johnson on the last lap to win at California. Jimmie Johnson would take the final win of the regular season at Richmond, winning the regular season title in the process by 59 points over Adam Petty. Carl Edwards would finish third, with Jeff Burton and Tony Stewart rounding out the top five. Dale Jr, Kasey Kahne, Jeff Gordon, Casey Atwood, and Matt Kenseth would round out the top ten. JJ Yeley would score 11th in points with Kyle Busch 12th, but due to the new points format and Yeley's lack of wins, 13th place Kurt Busch would move in the wildcard spot to get the last position of the chase with Yeley being bumped out.
Justin Allagier, despite missing the chase, would get a big first career win at Chicagoland, while Adam Petty's 2nd place points place run gave him the lead. Jimmie Johnson took Dover for the first chase win of 2011 to pick up the points lead. Talladega saw JJ Yeley dominate, leading 87 of 200 laps from the pole, but failing to score the win. Ryan Newman would pass Denny Hamlin on the last lap to put his #33 Earnhardt-Childress Chevy in victory lane, ending a winless streak dating back to September of 2006. Jeff Gordon would take the points lead with a win at Kansas, while Matt Kenseth moved to 4th in points behind Gordon, Johnson, and Petty by winning at Charllote. An uncharacteristic 29th place run at Martinsville gave Johnson the lead again. He'd extend that lead with a 2nd at Atlanta, as teammate Kyle Busch scored his fourth win. Johnson would further increase the lead to 23 over Adam Petty with 3 races left. JJ Yeley would finally get into victory lane at Phoenix, while an Adam Petty 3rd place run put him 9 points behind Johnson with one race left, while Carl Edwards got up to third 30 points back with all other dirvers mathematically eliminated. Hendrick Motorsports would triumphantly go 1-2-3 with Jeff Gordon, Kyle Busch, and champion Jimmie Johnson third. It would be title #3 for #48, the first driver to win three titles since Jeff Burton in 2006. Petty would finish 10th in the race, ending up second 15 points behind Johnson in points despite leading the league in top 10's with 29. Carl Edwards would have his best career run with a third place points run. Jeff Burton would score 4th, his best points run since his 2006 title win, while Kyle Busch also scored a career best 5th in points.

Kurt Busch, despite making the chase and winning at Michigan, has been released from Penske Racing in a shocker due to behavior problems. He heads to Michael Waltrip Racing's 55 Toyota in a definite downgrade, although it seems like the few top rides that were open this year weren't interested in signing the baggage that came along Busch.
David Stremme heads to the Blue Deuce to replace Kurt Busch following the 40 team shutting down. It's a big opportunity for the 34 year old, who has 2 Cup wins since his debut in 2006.
BK Racing has announced they will field the #83 Burger King Toyota with rookies David Gilliland and Chase Montgomery driving and the #93 Dr Pepper Toyota with Scott Speed Driving. It seems like Elliott Sadler will move back down to the Nationwide Series to compete for a title in the Earnhardt-Childress #8 Chevy instead of finding another Cup ride following Red Bull Racing's implosion.
Marcos Ambrose moves from JTG Daughtry Racing to the famed Wood Bros #21 in a full time effort. His replacement is Reed Sorenson, who will pilot the 47 moving foward in his first full time Cup opportunity since 2010.
2007 ROTY Stephen Leicht returns to the Cup in a full time ride for the first time since 2009, piloting the #36 Golden Corral Chevy for Tommy Baldwin.
The Stewart-Haas #41 will be a full time car in 2010. Aric Almirola gets his biggest Cup opportunity yet as he gets to pilot the car for 29 races, while Danica Patrick will drive for 7 races. The anticipation is that Patrick will take over in 2013 full time.

2011 Power Rankings
1) #18 Adam Petty (Scoring 1st and 2nd in the points in his last two seasons, Petty and rival Jimmie Johnson have been neck and neck competing to be not only the Sprint Cup champion but the face of NASCAR. With new rules banning Cup drivers from making more than seven appearances in the Nationwide and Truck series, AP will be able to focus more energy into scoring his second title in three seasons)
2 #48 Jimmie Johnson (Johnson has emerged from Jeff Gordon's shadow to become the top driver at Hendrick Motorsports over the last few seasons. His last five Cup campaigns have seen him score 2nd, 1st, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in points. "The Juggernaut" is a favorite to win his third title, which would put his name on a short, but talented, list of three-time Cup champions that includes Jeff Burton, Lee Petty, Darrell Waltrip, and Cale Yarbrough)
3 #14 Tony Stewart (Stewart came out of nowhere to upset the "Big Two" and win his second championship, ending a seven year title drought and the first driver to win gold for his own team since Richard Petty. "Smoke" will have tough competition ahead of him and a challenging route to winning his third title, but many people did not expect him to win the championship last season so anything is possible with the 39 year old)
4 #9 Kasey Kahne (The 2005 Daytona 500 champion has made the most out of his two years with Evernham, taking the #9 car from a 15-20th place team to a top 5 team that can compete for wins. With back-to-back 4th place runs in 2009 and 2010, Kahne is right now on the verge of greatness. He's the most likely candidate to become a first-time champion in 2011)
5) #24 Jeff Gordon (Gordon had a bounce-back 2010 with two wins and more importantly leading the league in top 10's with 21. Sadly, a poor chase run led him to score sixth when he really had a top four run most the season. Can Gordon end a championship drought that dates back to 2000?)
6) #39 Matt Kenseth (The inaugural season of the Kenseth and Evernham partnership ended in success, with Kenseth scoring 5th in points and getting two victories in the #39 Charter Communications Dodge. He's got a lot of competition including his own talented batch of teammates, but Kenseth is a dark horse to win it all in 2011)
7) #99 Jeff Burton (The veteran had a solid 2010, but similar to Gordon killed his title hopes due to a bad run in the Chase. A 10th place points finish by the Mayor is his worst since 1996, where he finished 13th. In an age where Burton is no longer considered the top dog, the 44 year old is looking to race not only to his fourth title, but race against time. How long can Burton stay competitive?)
8) #19 Casey Atwood (It is rather impressive that Ray Evernham has three cars ranked in the top 10, but it is a little surprising that Casey Atwood is the worst ranked of those three. The 2005 champ had a down season in 2011, barely missing the Chase for the first time in his career and only scoring one win. A 13th place run is considered good for many teams, but with Kasey Kahne and Matt Kenseth making top 5 in points this is a bit underwhelming. Atwood is hungry to bounce back this year and prove that last season's run was a fluke)
9) #25 Kyle Busch (The younger Busch brother had a standout 2010, scoring a pair of wins and a career-high 7th in points. Kyle brings aboard new sponsor Mountian Dew this season as well. Can he use this momentum to shock the world and win the title in 2011?)
10) #20 JJ Yeley (The fourth-year driver has really proven his worth at Joe Gibbs Racing. He backtracked slightly from 2009, going from 7th to 8th in points and only scoring 4 top 5's, but did win at the Brickyard for his first Crown Jewel. Yeley is hungry to stand out from the shadow of teammate Adam Petty and perhaps crack top five in points)
11) #8 Dale Earnhardt Jr (Jr had a sluggish return from injury in 2010 with his worst career season. Jr went winless and ended up 15th in points, despite being in the top 12 for a good chunk of the season. Little E has a lot to prove this season, can he end a winless streak that dates back to 2008? It would be a redemption arc for the ages)
12) #6 Carl Edwards (The three time Nationwide champ has had a fine Cup career, but is still looking for that big breakout season. With a couple team adjustments at Roush, Edwards moves to the #6 ride. Can he make magic happen with a new number and sponsor in UPS?)
13) #11 Denny Hamlin (Hamlin has found mild success at Joe Gibbs Racing, and ended up making the 2010 chase with a victory at Michigan but finished 12th. With a fourth JGR car (the #15 Z-Line Designs Toyota for Joey Logano) being added, can Hamlin stand out from his teammates and make the chase again?)
14) #04 Kevin Harvick (In his final season for Earnhardt-Childress Racing that spanned over 10 years and 3 Nationwide Titles, Harvick went winless for the first time since in his career, but made the chase and had a nice 9th place run due to consistency. With a fresh start in the Stewart-Haas #04 Chevy, Happy Harvick has chase hopes on his plate this season)
15) #2 Kurt Busch & #16 David Ragan (This was honestly a tie. Both drivers are in similar positions of finding success at their teams and recording 1-win 2010 seasons, but failing to make the chase. Both Busch and Ragan look to rebound in 2011)
Honorable mentions: #12 Ryan Newman, #1 Brad Keselowski, 17 Jamie McMurray, #42 Juan Pablo Montoya, 5 Brian Vickers, #40 David Stremme
The Daytona 500 would see Joey Logano win the pole in his first race at the Joe Gibbs Racing #15 with Jeff Gordon second. The first accident would take place on lap 118 of 200, that saw Adam Petty, Jeff Burton, Joey Logano, and Paul Menard crash on turn four. The second and final wreck happened on turn four again, this time taking place between Matt Crafton, Jerry Nadeau, and Jason Leffler in the midpack with thirty laps to go. This set up a twenty-five lap shootout between the lead-lap cars, with Jeff Gordon in front. With five to go, Dale Jr would pass Jimmie Johnson for the lead. Jr would use lapped cars to put some distance between him and the rest of the pack, taking the checkered flag for an emotional victory at the same race that his father won ten years ago and the race that he got injured at two years ago. It would be the first win for Dale since June of 2008 and his first '500 victory. Ryan Newman would finish second, giving ECR a 1-2 finish, with Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon, and Bobby Labonte rounding out the top five.
Jr would nearly win again at California the next week, leading 17 of 250 laps and finishing second to Adam Petty. Kyle Busch would pilot his Mountain Dew Chevy to victory lane at Las Vegas for a hometown win, with Hendrick winning again the next two weeks with Jimmie Johnson's victory at Atlanta and Bristol. Darlington would feature a photo-finish, with Matt Kenseth edging out Jimmie Johnson by .07 to give Dodge and Evernham their first wins of 2011. Ford would snap a small winless streak as Carl Edwards led 224 of 334 laps at Texas to score his first win in the #6 car. Kyle Busch would win his second race of the season at Phoenix, outlasting Adam Petty and Jimmie Johnson with a tight battle. Kevin Harvick would score his first win for Stewart-Haas at Talladega with a last lap pass on Jeff Burton, the first win for the team not by Tony Stewart. Burton would recover the next win for a win at the paperclip, Martinsville. After this race, tragic news would hit the air as Brian Vickers announced he was stepping down from racing in 2011 to deal with health issues. He is replaced by Stephen Leicht (8 Races), Landon Cassill (7 Races), David Gilliland (4 Races), Danica Patrick (2 Races), Boris Said (2 Races), Aric Almirola (1 Race), and Travis Kvapil (1 Race).
Hendrick would have a feel-good moment the following race after the sad news, as Vickers' replacement Landon Cassill led 25 laps in his rookie race, while Hendrick went 1-2 with Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson taking the top two spots. Adam Petty took the checkered at Richmond, while Jamie McMurray earned a solid victory at Dover in the #17 Roush Ford. Kurt Busch won at Michigan for Penske's first win of 2011, while his brother Kyle would pass Casey Atwood with three laps to go at Pocono to win his third win of the season. It would be the first time since 2005 with Ward and Jeff Burton that two brothers would win back-to-back races in the Cup series. Boris Said qualified on the pole in the #5 GoDaddy Chevy at Watkins Glen and nearly pulled off the shocking win, but Dale Jr would take home the trophy for win #2 on the season. Kasey Kahne would win at Daytona, a race that saw a huge crash. Coming off turn four on lap 39 Joey Logano blew a tire and ignited a massive fifteen car wreck. Kevin Harvick would be hit and flipped over violently, barrel rolling twenty times. Harvick broke a leg as a result of this crash and would be replaced by Reed Sorenson and Danica Patrick for the rest of the season, a dissapointing result for someone who was on the chase bubble. Later in the race, teammates Kurt Busch and Justin Allagiaer would wreck, with Busch giving the finger to his teammate after the race. Stewart-Haas would come back the following race, however, with last year's champion Tony Stewart earning his first victory of the season at the first ever Kentucky Cup race.
After 18 races Jimmie Johnson holds the points lead over Adam Petty, Dale Jr, Carl Edwards, and Kasey Kahne. Dale Jr's Cinderella story continues with a Daytona 500 win and being 58 points behind first. With the new shift in points system, only the top 10 in points are locked in, while the two next winningest drivers between 11th and 20th in points take the last two playoff spots. 9th and 10th in points are currently held by Kyle Busch (3 wins) and Casey Atwood (no wins), with 11th being held by winless JJ Yeley just 3 points behind 10th. Kurt Busch, who has one win, holds twelfth. Other drivers with wins in the "wild card spot" are Jamie McMurray at 15th and Kevin Harvick at 18th (although he won't make the chase due to injury). As it stands, Busch and McMurray would secure the final two spots with Yeley being booted. Who do you think will make the chase, and who will win the 2011 title?

2012 Silly Season
Big news as Red Bull Racing is shutting down at the end of 2011. Apparently, the team was simply not making enough money or generating enough interest to continue fielding cars. With 0 wins between 2007 and 2011 and none of their drivers cracking top 20 in the points in that timeframe, that makes a lot of sense. The team's assets were recently sold to Burger King franchisee Ron DeVine, who looks to bring his new team "BK Racing" to the scene. No word on Elliott Sadler or Scott Speed's plans for 2012.
Brian Vickers will have a "roll-out return" in 2012 according to him and Hendrick Motorsports in a press release as he recovers. Vickers will pilot a 5th Hendrick Car, the #28 National Guard Chevy, for 12 races in 2012, with truck and nationwide veteran Aric Almirola also landing four races in the part-time ride. Landon Cassill, who has done a decent job backing up Vickers so far, will run for ROTY in 2012 behind the 5 GoDaddy Chevy.
David Stremme is surprisingly out of a ride at the end of 2011. Considered by many to be Chip Ganassi Racing w/ Robert Yates's top driver, the 40 car will be shutting down following 2011 due to a lack of funds. Stremme, with two wins in his five year career is likely the top free agent on the market right now.
Roush Racing will be fielding a fifth full time car in 2012 for the first time since 2010. Ricky Stenhouse will be the driver of the #50 Discount Tire Ford in a ROTY campaign.
BD2 Motorsports will be slimming down in 2012 to a one car organization. The #01 will shut down and Reagan Smith will be let go from his ride. No clue where he goes.
Kurt Busch and Penske Racing have reportedly had disagreements behind the scenes. Busch has reportedly been asking for a release from his ride due to fustrations with the team and lack of chemistry with teammate Justin Allagaier, which were escalated following a wreck caused by Allagaier that took him out of the July Daytona race. Team owner Rodger Penske is reportedly tired with Busch's "diva complex", and Busch could be on the market at the end of the season. With his behavioral problems plaguing his career, would any other teams be interested in the two-time Daytona 500 winner?

2010 Power Rankings
1) #18 Adam Petty (After an incredibly dominant 2009, a member of the Petty family is on top of the racing world for the first time since 1979. AP and Joe Gibbs are a money combination and look to continue that run in 2010)
2) #48 Jimmie Johnson (The two-time champion is one of the favorites to win it all in 2010. Looking to score 3 titles in 4 seasons, Johnson is one of the top drivers in NASCAR today)
3) #99 Jeff Burton (One of the top drivers of the 2000's looks to continue that run into the 2010's. Burton had a solid 2009 and is a favorite to take home the gold for the fourth time in his career)
4) #24 Jeff Gordon (Gordon had a decent 2009, but a poor run in the chase slipped him down in the points standings to 8th. Can Gordon snap a 10 year championship-less steak?)
5) #2 Kurt Busch (Busch had a huge breakout season in 2009, scoring 3rd in the points. This is the best run in points he's had since his second place run in 2004. Finally looking like a threat after a few seasons out of the title picture, Busch is likely to give Penske their first championship in the Sprint Cup)
6) #97 Carl Edwards (Edwards had his best season yet with a fifth place points run and two wins. In a competitive field, can he shine in 2010 and score his first Cup title?)
7) #9 Kasey Kahne (Kahne came out of nowhere, defying expectations in his first year at Evernham to snag a pair of wins, 23 top 10's, and a 4th place points run. Kahne is a dark horse to win the gold in 2010)
8) #16 David Ragan (Ragan had a breakout 2009, exploding for three wins and 21 top 10's. Ragan was high as fourth in points at one point, but inconsistency in the chase killed his momentum and he ended up 9th in points. Ragan looks to continue this run and prove that 2009 was no fluke season)
9) #5 Brian Vickers (Vickers had another good season at Hendrick, bouncing back from a weak 2008 where he missed the chase. In Vickers second chase run, he scored only one win despite leading over 1000 laps and ended up 10th in points. Can Vickers make a title run in 2010?)
10) #20 JJ Yeley (Yeley has gotten better each year, and 2009 was his best season yet. Replacing Tony Stewart in the JGR 20 Toyota, Yeley won twice and made the chase, with a career-best 10th place points run. The young gun is looking forward to improving this in 2010)
11) #39 Matt Kenseth (After a few stagnant seasons at Roush, Kenseth made a big splash in the free agency by moving to a fourth Evernham car. Kenseth pilots the #39 Charter Communications Dodge, can he make a strong statement in his first season outside Roush?)
12) #8 Dale Earnhardt Jr (A injury at the Daytona 500 ended Jr's title hopes very early on, but Jr is determined to rebound this season. What a great story it would be if Dale could pick up his second title just a year after being out most the season)
13) #19 Casey Atwood (Atwood made the chase again in 2009, but wasn't much of a factor, scoring just one win and landing 11th in points. The 2005 champion is focused on taking home that second championship in 2010)
14) #14 Tony Stewart (Stewart had a solid first year with his new team. The owner-driver and 2003 champ will have to compete and battle uphill just to make the chase, which would be the new team's first ever chase run)
15) #25 Kyle Busch (While his brother soared in 2009, the younger Busch had a rather disappointing season. He did pick up a victory at Phoenix, but is having difficulty standing out from his more competitive teammates. Kyle is determined to break out in 2010)
Honorable Mentions: #07 Kevin Harvick, #11 Denny Hamlin, #31 Clint Bowyer, #12 Ryan Newman, #1 Martin Truex Jr, #17 Jamie McMurray
The 2010 season started off hot with the Daytona 500. Matt Kenseth would score the pole position in his first time driving the Evernham #39 Dodge. Jamie McMurray, new driver for the Roush #17 Ford that Kenseth left, would start alongside him at second. The race would be clean for the first 44 laps, until a caution occured during green flag pitstops. Kevin Harvick would be turned by David Reutimann trying to get down to pit road, igniting a twelve car pileup between the cars behind them. Tony Stewart, Jeff Burton, Kyle Busch, Dale Jr, Elliott Sadler, and Jimmie Johnson would be among those involved. The second of the three cautions occured at lap 135 of 200 when Stephen Leicht, Brian Vickers, Ryan Newman, and Jeremy Mayfield went four wide off of turn four, which did not work as planned. Sam Hornish Jr and JJ Yeley would also be forced to retire due to the wreck, with Matt Kenseth taking damage as well. Following this caution, the race would see a wild turn as a lap 191 caution took out Martin Truex Jr and Paul Menard, who both crashed on turn one. This led to a four lap shootout between the 9 lead-lap cars. 2005 Daytona 500 winner Kasey Kahne would start out front, with the rest 8 cars all being winless at the Daytona 500 - Adam Petty, Reagan Smith, Matt Kenseth, Carl Edwards, Casey Atwood, Todd Kluever, Jerry Nadeau, and Scott Riggs being the top 9. Following the restart, Petty would move to the lead and hold it, while the cars behind him shuffled around. Petty took the white flag, looking to win his first Daytona 500, with Edwards pushing him. Meanwhile, Todd Kluever in the 41 was getting pushed by Jerry Nadeau in third and fourth. Coming to turn one, Petty went to block the incoming Kluever but Kluever had a nose under. Kluever, Edwards, and Petty would crash with Atwood also getting involved. This put Jerry Nadeau in the lead coming to the backstretch. Scott Riggs and Reagan Smith would run second and third. Riggs would go for a pass off of turn four but Nadeau, driving the #09 Miccouskee Chevy for James Finch, would take the checkered flag in one of the biggest upsets in NASCAR history! Riggs, Smith, Kahne, and a heavily damaged Matt Kenseth would round out the top five.
After the miracle run by Jerry Nadeau at the Daytona 500, he was able to quality for the race at California, but finished 30th. Adam Petty would take the white flag and this time also take the checkered. Matt Kenseth would score a victory at Las Vegas, the first time he's won for Evernham Motorsports. Carl Edwards and Kasey Kahne would pick up the next two races at Atlanta and Bristol. Jimmie Johnson had a fantastic run at Martinsville, winning from the pole and leading 385 of 500 laps in the process. Kasey Kahne would have a similar run at Texas, leading the most laps from the pole to win again in the #9 McDonald's Dodge. For the second year in a row, Kyle Busch would score the win at Phoenix, this time holding off his brother Kurt in a tight battle. Dale Jr would lead the most laps at Talladega, but a last lap pass by Tony Stewart would give the '03 champ his first win of 2010. Stewart-Haas would continue their success at Richmond as Bobby Labonte led the most laps in the #04 Chevy and finished 6th while Tony Stewart finished 3rd, but Adam Petty would score his second win on the season. The Coca Cola 600 would be a fuel milage race due to an accident during green flag pitstops involving Reed Sorenson, Brad Keselowski, and Matt Kenseth. JJ Yeley would have the lead with three laps to go but was forced to pit. Clint Bowyer would take the lead, and the third year driver would have enough in the tank to score an emotional first career win. Tony Strewart would dominate at Dover, leading 157 of 400 laps and scoring the pole, but settling for third as Jeff Burton snagged the win. Roush's good fortune would continue at Michigan, as Carl Edwards and David Ragan would finish 1-2 and the entire team would finish in the top 15. Brian Vickers and Adam Petty would battle for the lead most the race at Pocono, but the leaders would actually crash with 20 to go while fighting for the lead. This would allow Tony Stewart to score the victory for the seocnd time in the season. Juan Pablo Montoya would shock many by routing the field at Infineon, leading 65 of 84 laps to win his first career Cup race. The Pepsi 400 wasn't too interesting, but had an exciting finish. Mike Bliss in the 34 was in the line for pulling off a major upset as he took the white flag with Jimmie Johnson pushing him. Casey Atwood was running fifth when he took the white flag, but was able to get into third after a turn one pass. As Jimmie Johnson made a move to pass Bliss on the backstretch, Atwood made it three-wide and took the lead. Atwood would hold off the field to score his first win of the season in the #19 Tide Dodge. Bliss would give Front Row racing their best career run with a second place finish, while Johnson finished third and AJ Allmendinger got his best career finish at fourth. Adam Petty would win at Chicagoland, his third on the season, leading 197 of 267 laps. Brad Keselowski would park his #78 Furniture Row Chevy in fourth, the team's best run to date thanks to their alliance with Earnhardt-Childress.
Currently, Adam Petty holds the point lead by just one single point over Jeff Burton. Matt Keneth runs third seven points behind, while Kasey Kahne and Tony Stewart round out the top five 23 and 43 points back. Who's your pick to win in this tight points race?

2010-2011 Silly Season
Big news as Kevin Harvick becomes a free agent following the 2010 season. He has been driving full time for Richard Childress Racing/Earnhardt Childress Racing since 2002, and has scored a high points run of 5th in that time, but has stagnated in the last few seasons. He is easily the hottest free agent on the market.
Earnhardt-Childress seems to be cleaning shop as Martin Truex Jr is also gone after the 2010 season. He's had one victory since his full-time debut in 2006, and after five seasons will now have a new ride. This hopefully is what he needs to revitalize his career.
Brian Vickers gets a new sponsor in 2011 as GoDaddy comes aboard to replace Kellogg's as sponsor. GoDaddy will sponsor five races in the 2010 season.
Scott Riggs is out at Roush Racing following three rather disappointing seasons, scoring 23rd and 25th in points in 2008 and 2009 and being the only winless driver at Roush in those two seasons. No word on his plans for 2010.
Andy Houston will be forming his own race team in 2011 with his father Tommy Houston forming Houston Family Ventures. The 2003 Daytona 500 winner will be piloting the #96 State Water Heaters Chevy full time in 2011 with factory support from Earnhardt-Childress, due to Houston's family connections to Richard Childress. The team has low expectations in 2011, but Andy's first foray into an owner-driving begins and hopefully the team can make an impact.
AJ Allemdinger will have a big opportunity in 2011 as he moves to Evernham Motorsports. He will be piloting the #29 Dodge, replacing Patrick Caprentier. Allmendinger has shown flashes in the pan at Red Bull, putting the #84 Toyota into the top 35 in owners points. His replacement is Scott Speed, who will be running for ROTY in the renumbered #82 Toyota.
Bobby Labonte is reportedly on the hot seat at Stewart-Haas. He had an average 2009, finishing 21st in points with no wins, and this season is shaping up to be worse as he currently sits 24th in points with no top fives and 2 top 10's while Tony Stewart is in 5th with two wins.
Braun Racing will be expanding to a two car team in 2011. They will continue to field the #32 Dollar General Toyota, and will now field the #10 Great Clips Toyota as well. No word on if Reed Sorenson will be returning to the #32, but Jason Leffler will be making a ROTY attempt in the 10 car after racing over ten seasons in the Busch/Nationwide series with just a handful of cup series starts in between. At 34 years old, Leffler will be one of the oldest to attempt ROTY in the Cup series.

2001 - Pt 1Pt 2
2002 - Pt 1Pt 2
2003 - Pt 1Pt 2
2004 - Pt 1Pt 2
Five years of simulation
2005 Power Rankings
  1. 20 Tony Stewart (The '03 champ had a really impressive 2004 with 4 wins, 962 laps led, and a 4th place points run, barely missing out on the title. He has a lot of momentum coming into 2004 and is probably the favorite to win the title)
  2. 97 Kurt Busch (Busch was just mere points from winning his first championship last year. He is one of the most consistent and hard-nosed drivers. Can the elder Busch brother make it happen in 2005?)
  3. 8 Dale Earnhardt Jr (Despite having an amazing championship season, NASCAR's fan favorite has a big obstacle ahead of him in 2005 with a big shakeup in team management. How will Jr adapt to DEI and RCR's merger?)
  4. 99 Jeff Burton (The face of NASCAR and two time champ took a small step back in '04 but still snagged a top five points finish. He's got a lot of newfound competition not only from other drivers, but his teammates. Burton has a realistic chance of being a three time champion and is a safe bet to win the gold in 2005)
  5. 24 Jeff Gordon (Hendrick had a weaker 2004, with Gordon only scoring two wins and finishing 8th in points. A bounce-back season for Gordon is definitely the expectation, with the drive for five not yet out of the question)
  6. 17 Matt Kenseth (Kenseth led the most laps in 2004 with a whopping 1567 laps and 3 wins, but consistency issues kept him away from the gold. Kenseth has all the pieces, can he win his first title?)
  7. 12 Ryan Newman (Arguably the top Dodge driver in NASCAR, Newman did not have the season he was hoping for in 2004. He did finish 7th in points and won two races, but didn't even come close to the championship like many predicted. Newman is hungry to prove his doubters wrong and win it all in 2005)
  8. 48 Jimmie Johnson (NASCAR's newest standout driver has developed himself into a solid wheelman in the last three years. Despite playing second fiddle to Gordon at Hendrick, Jimmie has started to break out of his shadow. Can he continue these strides in 2005?)
  9. 19 Casey Atwood (Casey had his strongest season yet in 2004. He picked up a new primary sponsor in Tide and won three races with a 6th place points finish. A dark horse to win the 2005 Nextel Cup title, can Atwood prove his 2004 season wasn't a fluke?)
  10. 9 Bobby Labonte (Labonte's got a lot to look forward to in 2005. He's got a new team with Evernham Motorsports that has been a proven winner, and he is hungry to end his winless streak and show he's still got it in 2005)
  11. 30 Kevin Harvick (Harvick has really proven himself in what is arguably the 3rd ECR car. He can consistently get a win a year, can he expand on it and possibly get a top five points run this season?)
  12. 38 Kasey Kahne (Kahne shocked many with a really consistent rookie season. He took the struggling 38 team to new heights, doing basically everything besides winning a race. Kahne has high expectations in 2005)
  13. 25 Elliott Sadler (Sadler had a breakout 2004 with a win and a 12th place points run. He's got a lot of competition, can Sadler prove his '04 wasn't a fluke and continue his success in 2005?)
  14. 6 Mark Martin (How long does Mark have left in the tank? Apparently enough to keep a consistent top 15 points run. Time is running out for the eldest Roush driver, can he make magic happen this year?)
  15. 45 Adam Petty (The fourth generation driver took a small step back in 2004, not scoring a win but at least achieving a decent 14th place points run. It's clear Petty's equipment isn't elite or even great (looking at the 43's failures since winning the 2003 Daytona 500), but AP is hungry to return to victory lane and break his winless streak)
Honorable mentions: #5 Brian Vickers, #31 Jeremy Mayfield, #88 Dale Jarrett, #15 Michael Waltrip, #2 Kenny Irwin
The 2005 season kicked off with a great Daytona 500. Jeff Burton and Bobby Labonte would start on the front row, and a lap two crash took out Jimmie Johnson and Blaise Alexander. After that, the race was mostly clean with a lot of exciting action towards the front. The finish saw Andy Houston of all people in the lead with three to go, looking to shock the world yet again by claiming his second Daytona 500. Kasey Kahne would be drafted to the front by Jamie McMurray to pass Houston. Kahne was then able to use the #91 of Hank Parker Jr, who was a lap down, as a pick to further the gap between the 38 and the 42. Kahne would hold off his fellow sophomore driver to win his first career race at the Daytona 500. McMurray, Stewart, Houston, and Bobby Labonte would be the top five. Jeff Gordon would score early with a win at California (which replaced Rockingham), and Adam Petty would snap his winless streak at Las Vegas by holding off Jimmie Johnson. Then, Casey Atwood would win back to back races at Atlanta and Bristol. It would be the first time since Tony Stewart did it at Texas and Martinsville in 2004 that a driver won back to back.
Jeff Gordon would return to victory lane, denying Hank Parker Jr of a huge upset by holding him off to take his second victory of the season. Texas would mark Bobby Labonte's first win since 2002 in an emotional victory for Evernham Motorsports. Texas also saw a scary last lap crash where Kurt Busch was turned hard into the wall by teammate Greg Biffle. Busch was airlifted to the hospital, and thankfully was declared safe and able to drive the following week. Jeff Burton would ease the tensions for Roush by scoring the team's first win, at Phoenix.
Talladega would see arguably the biggest upset in this sim to date. In the closest finish in NASCAR history, Ward Burton edged out Michael Waltrip by 0.0001 of a second Initially, Waltrip was scored as the winner, but a closer review saw that Burton barely edged out the 15 for Haas-CNC's first win and Ward’s first since 1995. With Jeff Burton's win the week prior, it would be the first time this century that two brothers won back to back races in NASCAR.
Darlington would be the "back to reality" moment for energetic NASCAR fans as Jeremy Mayfield and Jimmie Johnson combined to lead almost every lap of the race, with Johnson emerging victorious as Ward Burton finished 28th. Ryan Newman snagged Penske's first win of the season at Richmond, Dodge's 5th win of the year. Dodge would continue their success as Casey Atwood took home the Coca-Cola 600 for a big crown jewel win. With this lead, Atwood would take the points lead over Jeff Gordon, marking the first time he'd ever been in the points lead. Earnhardt-Childress Racing would score their first win since the two teams merged with Dale Jr's win at Dover. The Jeff's would win the next two races, as Jeff Burton won Michigan and Jeff Gordon won his third race of 2005 at Pocono. Tony Stewart would end a small winless streak by denying Bobby Labonte a win at Sonoma. Daytona was a wreckfest, as Matt Kenseth would emerge from the carnage to score his first win on the season. Roush would end the first half of the season on a high note with Mark Martin winning at Chicagoland.
After 18 races, Tony Stewart only has one win but holds the points lead. Jeff Gordon is just 9 points away, however, while Casey Atwood sits third 17 points out. Defending champ Dale Jr is in 4th down 151 points, and Bobby Labonte rounds out the top 5 in his comeback season. Who are you rooting for to take home the championship?

2005-2006 Silly Season
Kurt Busch has reportedly had some tensions with Roush Racing and could be out. He's yet to score a win in 2005 and sits 10th in points, and had a scary wreck at Texas caused by one of his teammates. Joe Gibbs Racing, Robert Yates Racing, and Penske Racing have reportedly had talks with the elder Busch brother to drive for them in 2006. With a second place points run in 2004 and 8 career wins in just 4 full time years, Kurt would be a highly desire free agent.
Michael Waltrip has announced that he will be expanding on his own team, Michael Waltrip Racing, in 2006. MWR will be switching from Chevy to Dodge. Waltrip will be leaving Earnhardt-Childress Racing to drive a second car for MWR, the #55 NAPA Dodge, while Kenny Wallace shares driving duties of the #00 Dodge with new driver Dale Jarrett, who heads from Robert Yates Racing as Jarrett enters semi-retirement. Martin Truex Jr will take over the #15 ride in a ROTY attempt for ECR, which will be renumbered to #1 with Bass Pro Shops coming aboard to sponsor.
Who will take over the 88 ride in 2006? Former Daytona 500 winner Andy Houston, who announced his departure from Petty Enterprises following the end of the 2005 season in a 1 year contract. Reportedly, Houston is to keep the seat warm for a year, then Busch series prospect Stephen Leicht will take over in 2007.
Roush Racing has been looking for teams to form alliances with, as they want to get their development drivers Carl Edwards and Todd Kluever in Cup rides ASAP. Both have been splitting time in the #06 Ford so far part time. Edwards attempted two races and qualified for one, with a 20th place finish, while Kluever DNQ'd his only attempt so far.
Joe Gibbs Racing has reportedly expressed interest in starting a third full time team in 2006. FedEx wants to sponsor a full time team with them but there are not a lot of sponsorship opportunities on rookie Mike Bliss or former champ Tony Stewart's car, and Busch series drivers Denny Hamlin, Mike McGlaughin, and JJ Yeley are rumored as the drivers.
Sterling Marlin has announced he is done with full time cup competition after 2005, but wants to drive part time in 2006. The former Daytona 500 winner would be a great addition and provide a lot of expertise to young/underfunded teams that need a week by week driver. Meanwhile, rookie Reed Sorenson gets his shot in a full time cup ride as he takes over the #40 in 2006.
AOL is reportedly looking to dial back their involvement in NASCAR after 2005. Meaning Kevin Harvick is looking for a sponsor for his 30 ride.

2019.05.10 22:01 ArmenianWave 2004 NASCAR Mock Season - Pt 3

Race 13/36: MBNA 500 @ Dover
Miles the Monster must have been starving as this race saw only 22 of 43 cars finish, and only 2 on the lead lap for this wreckfest. Sterling Marlin and Greg Biffle started on the front row. The first accident occured on lap 36 of 140 when Mike Wallace in the 50 was spun by Jeff Burton in the backstretch. On lap 48, Ryan McGylnn hit the wall coming off of turn 4 and hit Elliott Sadler, taking out Dave Blaney in the process. The big wreck occured on lap 87 when Jeremy Mayfield, Joe Nemecheck, and Morgan Sheppard went 3 wide off of turn 4 in front of a big pack of cars and caused a huge accident. Mayfield flipped over and collected only two or three cars at first as the cars drifted to the grass, but Ricky Rudd spun trying to avoid the wreck into a big pack of leaders including Jeff Gordon, Kasey Kahne, and Kurt Busch. After this, Tony Stewart would lead and seemingly have his first win on the year locked up but a bad green flag pitstop handed the lead to Jimmie Johnson, who led the last 15 laps to win at Dover. Terry Labonte got his best finish on the year with 2nd. Stanton Barrett in the 94 got his best career run at 22nd, while Joe Ruttman, who has been racing for nearly 50 years in the Cup series, had a small return to glory with an 18th place run in the 09 car.

Race 14/36: Pocono 500 @ Pocono
Elliott Sadler and Kasey Kahne started 1 and 2 for this 69 (nice) lap event. Unlike last week's race, this event was mostly clean aside from a lap 25 caution involving Ken Schrader and Ricky Craven. Jimmie Johnson dominated and looked like he was going to win, but in a reversal of last week Tony Stewart got a late pass and won his first race on the year.

Race 15/36: DHL 400 @ Michigan
Sadly I forgot to save the race file, so no pictures besides the results here. Not really an eventful race though. Michael Waltrip won the pole and Kasey Kahne would start second. There were 0 cautions, although Ryan Newman and Jeff Gordon made hard contact during a green flag pitstop as Newman was leaving his stall and ran right into Gordon, which ended both drivers days. Tony Stewart dominated, leading 45 of 60 laps, but it wasn't enough as Rusty Wallace snuck past him using fuel strategy break a 3 year losing streak and win at Michigan. Stewart got second and Jimmie Johnson scored 3rd. Meanwhile Carl Edwards finished 12th in his first race with Mach 1 Racing, which is the team's best run to date. A very impressive showing.

Race 16/36: Dodge / SaveMart 350 @ Infineon
Kevin Harvick started on the pole for this 30 lap shootout with Casey Mears 2nd. A big surprise this race was Sterling Marlin, who started 36th and worked his way to the front the lead. However, Harvick rallied back and got his first win on the season. This is the 4th week in a row that we've seen a first time winner on the season. Ron Fellows finished 10th with Haas CNC Racing, the team's best finish to date. Following the race, Fellows was announced to be driving the next 3 races with Ward Burton being released from his ride. No word on a full time driver just yet.

Race 17/36: Coke 500 @ Daytona
Daytona delivers as usual. This 48 lap event was led off by Michael Waltrip and Greg Biffle. The first chunk of the race was caution free up until lap 25, when Mike Wallace stalled out on track to bring out the first caution. Then, on lap 35 the big one struck when Jamie McMurray got into the quarter fender of Kasey Kahne, sending them into Rusty Wallace and Terry Labonte. This triggered a big 15 car wreck that took out favorites like Kurt Busch, Jeff Gordon, and Matt Kenseth. After that, only a few cars from the main pack remained. Scott Riggs took advantage of this in the lead and held off Ryan Newman for the last few laps to win his first career race. Newman took second and Jeremy Mayfield finished 3rd. This race saw some upsets, as Ron Fellows finished 5th, Carl Edwards finished 8th in a 1 race gig with a second Mach 1 Team (the 96 car as Bill Elliott was driving the 98) and Kenny Wallace finished 11th.

Race 18/36: Tropicana 400 @ Chicagoland
Ryan Newman, looking for his 3rd win on the year, started on the pole while ROTY leader Kasey Kahne started second. This race saw one caution and it happened right away when Jeremy Mayfield stalled out getting into gear causing a small pileup on lap 1. Newman had a strong running, leading 53 of 81 laps, but it would be Matt Kenseth, breaking a 45 race losing streak, who took the checkered flag. It's the 7th unique winner in the last 7 races, and the 6th time that win has been a drivers first win on the season (Jeff Gordon's race 12 win being the exception as that was his second win)

2005 Silly Season Notes and Rumors
Mark Martin has declared that 2004 will be his final year and he is retiring after this season. Carl Edwards, who has had two impressive top 15 runs with Mach 1 Racing, will take over the 6 car with new sponsorship from DHL and Comcast. It's been a legendary career for Martin, who will likely go down as the greatest driver to never win a Daytona 500 or championship unless he can win here, which is definitely possible.
Ultra Motorsports, which fields the 7 car for Jimmy Spencer and Kevin LePage, has announced they will be shutting down due to lack of funds and sponsorship, ending a legacy for the 7 car.
Ricky Craven has also announced that 2004 will be his last full time year, but he will run a partial schedule in 2005. This means that the 32 team will have a new driver in '05, no word on who it is.
Ron Fellows will drive the 0 Haas Chevy for the rest of the year.
Evernham Motorsports has announced they will not be running a 3rd full time team in 2005, but will be running the 91 team part time. Bill Elliott, Ricky Craven, Casey Atwood will each attempt 5 races and Busch Series prospect Paul Wolfe will attempt 2 races. Elliott will run the 500 with McDonalds sponsorship.
Sterling Marlin has announced he will be joining Richard Childress Racing in 2005 in a big announcement. Marlin will drive the 30 car, which will renumber to #7 with Jack Daniels entering NASCAR as a first time sponsor for all 36 races. Marlin signs a 1 year deal with a 1 year option, and will likely retire after the contract ends. Meanwhile Johnny Sauter will drive the 40 Ganassi car in what seems to be a trade. Sauter signs a 1 year deal and will bring AOL to sponsor 7 races for the 40 car while Coors Light remains on the rest 29.

Race 7/36: Samsung Radio Shack 500 @ Texas
Kurt Busch won the pole for this 101 lap shootout in Fort Worth. Kurt's brother Kyle would debut as well in this race. The first caution saw Kurt, while in the lead, blow a motor and spill oil on the track on lap 33, bringing out the first caution. On lap 36 the troubles continued for Roush as '03 champ Matt Kenseth stalled out during the caution, ending his day as well. The second and final caution took place on 78 when Jeff Gordon and Jeff Green collided, also involving Jeremy Mayfield. Green would retire while Gordon and Mayfield took minor damage. While on pit road, Elliott Sadler's 38 car hit the 91 of Bill Elliott while Sadler was moving out of his stall. This caused the 38 and 91 to crash into the 40 of Sterling Marlin. All 3 cars suffered decent damage and Sadler and Marlin were forced to retire. Up until this point, Ryan Newman had led 20 straight laps and had a comfortable lead, but a poor pitstop put him last out of all the lead lap cars. Newman was not able to recover and Mark Martin led the rest of the race, holding off Scott Riggs to get his first win on the year. After the rough start for Roush, they were still able to rally and win. Kasey Kahne got 3rd and Newman was forced to settle for 11th.

Race 8/36: Advance Auto Parts 400 @ Martinsville
"Front Row" Joe Nemecheck won the pole while last week's winner Mark Martin started second. The first caution flag was waved on lap 28 of 150 when Scott Wimmer stalled out on the backstretch. Then, on lap 59, Ryan McGlynn in the 00 car was spun by Jeremy Mayfield coming off of turn 4. After that, lap 80 saw the third caution when Ricky Craven stalled on turn 1. This caused a small pileup behind him, ending the days of Greg Biffle and Sterling Marlin while causing several cars to suffer damage. On lap 115, Kevin LePage in the 4 Chevy rubbed tires with Ricky Rudd and both spun out to slow down the race. Finally, lap 126 saw the last caution flag fly and it was a big one. Joe Nemecheck was spun by Terry Labonte coming into turn one and it caused a huge pileup of cars in contention to win behind them wrecking to avoid the two stopped cars. Kasey Kahne, Kevin Harvick, Jeff Gordon, Matt Kenseth, and Jeremy Mayfield were all in the top 10 and were involved, only Kenseth and Harvick were able to finish the race (both outside the top 20 due to heavy damage). Meanwhile, Ryan Newman was able to avoid the wrecks and win at Martinsville, with Jimmie Johnson coming runner up. Newman becomes the fastest driver to get 10 career wins, doing it in just 80 races. It was a feel good story for Hermie Sadler, who miraculously suffered no damage and used good pit strategy to finish 14th.

Race 9/36: Aaron's 499 @ Talladega
Brian Vickers won his first career pole and teammate Terry Labonte would start second for this restrictor plate race. This race was mostly clean, with only one caution occuring on lap 22 of 56 for a blown engine and spin from Tony Stewart. In the end, a three car pack of Jeremy Mayfield, Ryan Newman, and Kurt Busch would break away from the pack due to lapped traffic. This race would see the closest finish in NASCAR history when Ryan Newman edged out Mayfield by .001 of a second - closer than the 2003 dual between Ricky Craven and Kurt Busch. Newman gets his second win on the year, and 11th career win.

Race 10/36: Auto Club 500 @ California
Jimmie Johnson and Ryan Newman would start on the front row for this race. The only caution flag waved on lap 49 of 75 when Robby Gordon spun on turn 1, collecting Mark Martin. This race saw a variety of leaders, between the 24, 48, and 38 cars, but fuel strategy shook things up with some cars running out of fuel towards the end. Dale Jr and crew chief Tony Eury Sr made the right calls and picked up the win. Scott Wimmer nearly pulled off a huge upset by finishing 3rd, while Todd Bodine got Mach 1 Motorsports its best career run to date, finishing 13th in the 98 Lucas Oil Ford.

Race 11/36: Chevy American Revolution 400 @ Richmond
Despite the race name, the '04 CAR 400 saw two non-Chevy's in the front row with Kasey Kahne and Elliott Salder 1 and 2. The first caution took place on lap 19 of 119 when Jeff Burton and Jamie McMurray got together, sending McMurray into Morgan Sheppard's 89 car. On lap 35, Andy Hillenburg spun out on the backstretch to bring out caution #2. After that, the race stayed clean until the end. Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr were battling for the lead with two to go, but the lapped car of Casey Mears was in the way. Jr accidentally spun Mears trying to pass him, bringing out the race ending caution and handing Gordon his second win on the year.
Top 5 1. 24 Jeff Gordon 2. 8 Dale Earnhardt Jr 3. 2 Rusty Wallace 4. 17 Matt Kenseth 5. 20 Tony Stewart
Race 12/36: Coca Cola 600 @ Lowes
This wreckfest would see Dale Jr and Tony Stewart start on the front row. The first 75% of this race was totally clean, bar a Scott Riggs blown engine on lap 77 of 120. On lap 92, Greg Biffle was clipped by Jamie McMurray in a battle for 7th and both spun, taking out Elliott Sadler with them. The restart was mess as a failed 3 wide attempt between Kyle Petty, Dale Jarrett, and Robby Gordon led to a 20 car pileup on turn 1. Kevin Harvick flipped over and many upper-midpack guys like Rusty Wallace, Michael Waltrip, and Joe Nemechek crashed. Jeff Gordon used this restart to take the lead over Kasey Kahne and held on to win his third race of the season, the most of anyone so far.

2005 Silly Season Notes and Rumors
Roush Racing has just signed an alliance with Mach 1 Motorsports. Mach 1 currently field the 98 Ford for Geoff and Todd Bodine, and they planned for a 1 race deal with Bill Elliott to run the July Daytona race, but this alliance will see new rookie Carl Edwards run 6 races, cutting into the schedule of the Bodine brothers. Rumors in the garage indicate that there could be some huge changes in Roush for 2005, and they want to ready up the Truck series veteran as they feel a slot will be open for him to run full time next year. Mark Martin is considering retirement, Jeff Burton is in a contract year and is rumored not to extend his deal, Kurt Busch has reportedly had attitude problems and disagreements with Jack Roush, and Greg Biffle, despite winning a race, has been running poorly, running 29th in the standings. Edwards' first race will be race 15 in Michigan, giving him 3 weeks to practice running cup cars in the meanwhile.
Ward Burton is reportedly in the hot seat at Haas Racing. Driving the 0 car this year, the former Daytona 500 winner has had a dissapointing season with 0 top 10's or laps led and is sitting 34th in points, almost outside the top 35. Haas also has been rumored to be stepping up their Cup program with a higher budget and they want to target a high level free agent. Rumors say that Jeff Burton, Sterling Marlin, Kenny Wallace could join. Jason Leffler is their Busch series driver at the moment, perhaps he could be called up to the Cup program as well.
Shane Hmiel has been reinstated into NASCAR recently after passing NASCAR's road to recovery program, and he has had a few impressive starts in the Busch and Truck series including a Truck win. He is now scheduled to attempt the July Daytona race with Dale Earnhardt Inc's part time #1 car.
Evernham Motorsports is rumored to be expanding to 3 full time cars in 2005. Sources say that team owner Ray Evernham has been pushing for a 3 car team since his two drivers right now are top 10 in points and Bill Elliott managed a top 10 in one of the two starts the 91 car has had so far, and was running in the top 20 until a crash took him out in the other. Will Bill Elliott come out of retirement to drive the 91 car full time, will they pick up a high level free agent, go with a young Busch driver, or are these rumors all false. Find out next time on Mock Season Z.

2018.12.30 17:50 ChadGnarly If the No Bull 5 still existed, part 2

Gonna pick up where I left off last night, with the start of the 2012 season. We only had nine winners of the million dollar bonus from 2003-2011, let's see if that number picks up from 2012-2018.
Part 1 for those who missed it.
2012: Kobalt Tools 400 at Las Vegas
Sprint 5: 15, 31, 36, 2, 5
Top 5 finishers: 14, 48, 16, 39, 99. No winner, Brad Keselowski had a good shot at it until EFI issues took his chances away late in the race. Also to note, Brian Vickers was eligible for the bonus due to his 5th place finish at Talladega in 2011, but he did not enter at Las Vegas so his spot went to sixth-place finisher and former Red Bull teammate Kasey Kahne.
Coca Cola 600 at Charlotte
Sprint 5: 14, 48, 16, 39, 99
Top 5 finishers: 5, 11, 18, 16, 2. No winner, but The Biff earns another shot at Daytona.
Coke Zero 400 at Daytona
Sprint 5: 5, 11, 18, 16, 2
Top 5 finishers: 14, 31, 17, 20, 39. No winner.
Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond
Sprint 5: 14, 31, 17, 20, 39
Top 5 finishers: 15, 24, 55, 14, 17. No winner, but Tony Stewart and Matt Kenseth earn another shot at Talladega. Also to note, Mark Martin does not run the 55 at Talladega, so he will be replaced with sixth place finisher Jeff Burton.
Good Sam Roadside Assistance 500
Sprint 5: 15, 24, 14, 17, 31
Top 5 finishers: 17, 24, 18, 34, 78. Matt Kenseth finally wins the million after 12 years of trying. Maybe that block Tony Stewart threw on Casey Mears and Michael Waltrip was a last ditch effort to score the bonus for himself. Also, Regan Smith loses his ride at Furniture Row the week after scoring a top 5 for the team and does not find another ride for Las Vegas in 2013, giving his shot at the bonus to Greg Biffle instead.
2013: Kobalt Tools 400 at Las Vegas
Sprint 5: 20, 24, 18, 34, 16
Top 5 finishers: 20, 5, 2, 18, 99. Matt Kenseth goes back to back, winning his second million dollar bonus, and being our first repeat winner of the bonus since Jeff Burton won back to back No Bull 5s in 1999.
Coca Cola 600 at Charlotte
Sprint 5: 20, 5, 2, 18, 99
Top 5 finishers: 29, 5, 78, 11, 22. Kasey Kahne comes up one spot short after dominating the race, letting the million dollars slip away. Matt Kenseth finishes 15th after leading 112 laps, letting his shot at a third straight million dollar bonus get away as well.
Coke Zero 400 at Daytona
Sprint 5: 29, 5, 78, 11, 22
Top 5 finishers: 48, 14, 29, 15, 55. No winner, but Kasey Kahne was going for it before being turned around on the backstretch with three to go. Michael Waltrip did not enter the race at Richmond, so his spot will go to Kurt Busch.
Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond
Sprint 5: 48, 14, 29, 15, 78
Top 5 finishers: 99, 78, 39, 1, 27. No winners at the Spingate race. This one would be a big question mark, would Michael Waltrip have entered the race instead of putting Brian Vickers in the 55? With Clint Bowyer eligible for the extra million dollars, would MWR have given team orders? Clint lead 72 laps in the second half of the race, maybe with an extra million dollars on the line, MWR doesn't attempt to manipulate the race, maybe the entire night goes different, maybe MWR doesn't close down, Truex doesn't go to the 78, who wins the 2017 championship? Who knows, but aren't these hypotheticals fun?
Camping World RV Sales 500 at Talladega
Sprint 5: 99, 78, 39, 1, 27
Top 5 finishers: 1, 88, 17, 27, 18. Jamie McMurray wins his first million dollar bonus in his final trip to victory lane to date. The caution flew at the perfect time, allowing Jamie Mac to win under yellow instead of having to fend off Dale Jr for the win.
2014: Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas
Sprint 5: 1, 88, 17, 27, 18
Top 5 finishers: 2, 88, 27, 22, 99. No winner as Brad K passes Dale Jr with half a lap to go when the 88 runs out of fuel. Also to note, Paul Menard gets his third straight shot at the million dollar bonus.
Coca Cola 600 at Charlotte
Sprint 5: 2, 88, 27, 22, 99
Top 5 finishers: 48, 4, 20, 99, 1. No winner, Menard finishes 8th and doesn't make the cut for his fourth straight run for a million, and Las Vegas winner Brad Keselowski finishes 10th after leading 43 laps.
Coke Zero 400 at Daytona
Sprint 5: 48, 4, 20, 99, 1
Top 5 finishers: 43, 55, 41, 13, 3. No winner as most of the field wrecks and the rain shortens this one. Casey Mears is eligible for the million for the first time since Daytona 2007.
Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond
Sprint 5: 43, 55, 41, 13, 3
Top 5 finishers: 2, 24, 15, 1, 4. No winner as Brad Keselowski dominates the race, leading all but 17 laps. However, this sets us up for a wild race at Talladega.
GEICO 500 at Talladega
Sprint 5: 2, 24, 15, 1, 4
Top 5 finishers: 2, 20, 15, 40, 31. Brad Keselowski's walk-off win that sends him to the next round of the Chase also nets him a cool million dollar bonus. This finish is already considered one for the ages, I'm sure it would be even bigger with an extra million on the line.
2015: Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas
Sprint 5: 2, 20, 15, 40, 31
Top 5 finishers: 4, 78, 31, 88, 11. No winner. Interesting to note though, Travis Kvapil, who was our backup driver for the Sprint 5 for Vegas, missed the race. It has no effect on the scenario, but he narrowly missed a top 5 at Talladega in the fall of 2014, and it would've been interesting to see the Team XXXtreme 44 up for a million dollars.
Coca Cola 600 at Charlotte
Sprint 5: 4, 78, 31, 88, 11
Top 5 finishers: 19, 16, 88, 20, 78. No winner in this one, but Dale Jr and Truex Jr are eligible again at Daytona.
Coke Zero 400 at Daytona
Sprint 5: 19, 16, 88, 20, 78
Top 5 finishers: 88, 48, 11, 4, 41. Dale Jr finally does it again, winning his first million dollar bonus since 2004 at Talladega.
Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond
Sprint 5: 88, 48, 11, 4, 41
Top 5 finishers: 20, 18, 22, 43, 88. No winner as Matt Kenseth dominates this one, leading 352 laps and the Gibbs team leading a combined 375 laps.
CampingWorld.com 500 at Talladega
Sprint 5: 20, 18, 22, 43, 88
Top 5 finishers: 22, 88, 24, 2, 19. Joey Logano wins the million in controversial fashion. Kevin Harvick takes out the field in a last ditch effort to move to the next round of the Chase, and the caution flies as Logano and Jr battle side by side for a million dollars. In this world, the fans probably destroy the grandstands and parking lot in a riot, but that has no effect on the results so we carry on. Also to note, Jeff Gordon retires at the end of 2015 so Paul Menard receives the fifth spot for the million at Las Vegas in 2016.
2016: Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas
Sprint 5: 22, 88, 2, 19, 27
Top 5 finishers: 2, 22, 48, 18, 3. Brad K wins another million, beating out teammate Joey Logano who was going for his second straight bonus.
Coca Cola 600 at Charlotte
Sprint 5: 2, 22, 48, 18, 3
Top 5 finishers: 78, 4, 48, 11, 2. No winner as Truex leads 392 laps, although he was challenged by Jimmie Johnson who was up for the bonus.
Coke Zero 400 at Daytona
Sprint 5: 78, 4, 48, 11, 2
Top 5 finishers: 2, 18, 6, 22, 17. Brad K wins his third million dollar bonus leading 115 laps. Trevor Bayne qualifies for his first million dollar race at Richmond.
Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond
Sprint 5: 2, 18, 6, 22, 17
Top 5 finishers: 11, 42, 78, 2, 4. No winner. Brad K comes up short as he goes for back to back bonuses.
Hellmann's 500 at Talladega
Sprint 5: 11, 42, 78, 2, 4
Top 5 finishers: 22, 44, 11, 41, 17. No winner. Brian Scott retires at the end of 2016, so he is replaced by sixth place finisher Kyle Larson at Las Vegas in 2017.
2017: Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas
Monster 5: 22, 11, 41, 17, 42
Top 5 finishers: 78, 42, 24, 22, 2. No winner, but Larson and Logano are eligible again at the Coke 600.
Coca Cola 600 at Charlotte
Monster 5: 78, 42, 24, 22, 2
Top 5 finishers: 3, 18, 78, 20, 11. No winner as Austin Dillon stretches the fuel just long enough to win. Truex dominated the race, but comes up short.
Coke Zero 400 at Daytona
Monster 5: 3, 18, 78, 20, 11
Top 5 finishers: 17, 14, 27, 95, 31. No winner, but Michael McDowell earns his first shot at a million dollars at Richmond.
Federated Auto Parts 600 at Richmond
Monster 5: 17, 14, 27, 95, 31
Top 5 finishers: 42, 22, 31, 41, 11. No winner, but Ryan Newman earns another shot at the million at Talladega.
Alabama 500 at Talladega
Monster 5: 42, 22, 31, 41, 11
Top 5 finishers: 2, 31, 6, 22, 43. No winner as Brad K edges out Ryan Newman for the win. Newman comes up just short of capturing the million dollars, meaning no one gets the money in 2017.
2018: Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas
Monster 5: 2, 31, 6, 22, 10
Top 5 finishers: 4, 18, 42, 78, 12. No winner, although Kevin Harvick gets busted with the rear windshield issue and his win is encumbered. For this, I could take his eligibility away for Charlotte and give it to Brad Keselowski, who finished 6th, but it doesn't affect the outcome either way so we'll just go ahead and let it go.
Coca Cola 600 at Charlotte
Monster 5: 4, 18, 42, 78, 12
Top 5 finishers: 18, 78, 11, 2, 48. Kyle Busch wins another million dollars as he leads 377 of 400 laps to claim this one. Kevin Harvick, who was eligible for the money because of his "win" at Vegas, finishes dead last after hitting the wall early.
Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona
Monster 5: 18, 78, 11, 2, 48
Top 5 finishers: 20, 78, 47, 95, 37. No winner. Chris Buescher qualifies for his first shot at the bonus, and Kasey Kahne retires before he gets his final shot at the bonus, so his spot will go to sixth place finisher Ty Dillon.
Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond
Monster 5: 20, 78, 47, 37, 13
Top 5 finishers: 18, 4, 78, 9, 10. No winner, Martin Truex Jr is the only driver to earn another shot at Talladega.
1000Bulbs.com 500
Monster 5: 18, 4, 78, 9, 10
Top 5 finishers: 10, 14, 17, 11, 22. Aric Almirola wins the million as Kurt Busch runs out of fuel in turns 3 and 4 coming to the checkers. So the hypothetical five drivers that would be up for the Monster Million in Las Vegas 2019 would be Almirola, Bowyer, Stenhouse, Hamlin, and Logano. AJ Allmendinger, our sixth place "fill-in" driver, most likely wont have a ride for Vegas, so for the first time ever, the honor would fall to 7th place finisher Jimmie Johnson.
So I hope you all enjoyed this, just thought it would be interesting to go through and find some alternative history. A few surprise millionaires and a few controversial winners, and quite a few replacement drivers. A grand total of 19 different million dollar prizes were claimed between 14 different drivers. Thanks for reading everyone, cant wait for 2019.

2018.12.19 16:40 joetron2030 2019 Season 1 Patch 1 - Release Notes [2018.12.18.01]

From the post at http://members.iracing.com/jforum/posts/list/3628006.page:
This release includes The Chili Bowl dirt oval track, and the fully animated IndyCar pit crews for all Dallara models! We've also included some fixes to keep your racing at top-notch to help you bring in the new year. Happy Holidays!
iRacing BETA Interface
  • Fixed a background issue that was causing some users to experience a slow response when taking some interface actions.
  • A curative elixir has been given to all crew members who were suffering from a metallic skin condition. Hopefully, there are no lasting side effects.
  • Fixed an issue where headlight flare effects were not rendering correctly during the day.
  • Fixed an issue where the sky was not appearing behind the rest of the scene, and at a distance in 3D, when using nVidia3D.
Dynamic Sky
  • Fixed an issue where track-side objects could turn black at twilight when vehicle headlights were disabled.
  • Some diffuse light is now added to the reflections of objects at night. This will correct an issue, as seen on the cones at Lime Rock Park, where reflective areas could appear black at night.
  • Fixed an issue where static shadows on the track surface were not turning on or off when getting in or out of a car with different Replay vs Graphics settings.
  • Fixed an issue with cloud lighting where it would incorrectly dim and then get brighter again at sunset and sunrise.
Time of Day
  • The "Clock:" label has been changed to "Sim Time:" on the Replay screen.
  • The short day-of-week name has been added to the displayed value, and changed the color of the value from red to black so that it does not stand out as much as the Session Time.
Pit Stops
  • Fully animated IndyCar pit crews have been hired to work on all Dallara models!
    • Dallara DW12
    • Dallara F3
    • Dallara IR18
    • Indycar Dallara - 2011
      • Be sure to take a pit stop with one of these cars to see the team in action!
  • A rule change for GTE pit stops has been implemented.
    • Cars must now re-fuel first and may only change tires once re-fueling is complete. This addresses both Members' requests and the anticipated change in real-life WEC rules for the 2019/20 season.
  • The variable name "dc" has been changed to "dp" based on if a driver control is tied to the F7 black box or not.
  • Fixed an issue where the "TimeOfDay:" and "Date:" strings were not being pulled correctly.
Dallara IR18
  • Fixed an issue where some wheels on opponent cars were not spinning correctly or were floating above the ground.
NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 - 2018
  • Additional details have been added to more distant LODs of this vehicle to reduce popping seen when the model and textures down-sample.
Charlotte Motor Speedway
  • The flagger is now properly situated in his box.
  • Removed some of the extra blue cones that block off the old Roval configuration road.
  • Fixed a bump located at the exit of the infield road course near the light pole, and stitched up a terrain seam under the pit-out wall.
The Chili Bowl
    • The Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals, a brand new indoor dirt oval track, is now available for purchase in the iRacing Store!
    • Located at the Tulsa Expo Center in Oklahoma, racers from around the country across multiple disciplines come together to bear witness to what has been dubbed the 'Super Bowl of Midget Racing'. The Chili Bowl Midget Nationals is a prestigious dirt racing event that has seen the likes of Tony Stewart, Kasey Kahne, Christopher Bell, Kyle Larson, Rico Abreu, and the Swindell family fill the grids. The inaugural Chili Bowl was organized by Lanny Edwards and partner Emmett Hahn. It was named after a local company who sponsored the first event. The race has been hosted at the Tulsa Expo Center since it was founded in 1987. The inaugural 1987 event consisted of 52 midgets competing in the 2-day event. The event now consists of four days of qualifiers for the Saturday night A-main event. The Chili Bowl's key ingredient is the clay which once covered the adjacent fairgrounds. Without sun or wind to harm it, the indoor garden (roughly a quarter-mile circle) is heavily saturated so that the boldest dirt track artists of our time can truly shine. It accommodates over two hundred race rigs, bleachers for thousands of people, and an ever-growing trade show. To stroll the aisles of Tulsa's QuikTrip Center, the home of The Golden Driller, is to rub shoulders with champions from across America.
  • Grab yourself a helping of the fabled indoor dirt oval from the iRacing Store!
Circuit des 24 Heures du Mans
  • Additional lightmaps have been added for greater detail at night.
Williams Grove Speedway
  • Fixed a terrain seam located on an access road on T2 outside access road.

2018.06.11 00:01 ArmenianWave ArmenianWave's Sprint Cup Mock Season - 2008 Preview [Part 2]

Here are the teams we're looking at today:
Dale Earnhardt Inc (#8, #14), Derrikke Cope Racing (#62), Evernham Motorsports (#9, #10, #19, #91, #98)
Dale Earnhardt Inc
Cars: https://imgur.com/a/BypvSgp
8 Dale Earnhardt Jr - Coca Cola/Bass Pro Shops/Wrangler (2007 Stats: 1 Win, 11 Top 5's, 19 Top 10's, 1 Pole, 347 Laps Led, 8th in points)
14 Tony Stewart - Burger King/Old Spice (2007 Stats: 2 Wins, 10 Top 5's, 22 Top 10's, 5 Poles, 347 Laps Led, 6th in points)
DEI had a solid 2007, but some big silly season moves and changes will result in an interesting 2008. Tony Stewart joins DEI in a power move, while Martin Truex Jr, Paul Menard, and sponsor Budweiser are major departures for the team.
Dale Earnhardt Jr had a good 2007 run, improving on 2006. For the third year in a row, he only had 1 win, but improved on top 5's and top 10's, scoring 11 top 5's and 19 top 10's compared to 10 and 17 in 2006. Jr might see a fall in stats, though, as financial woes have caused DEI to lay off employees and downscale to a two car team.
Tony Stewart is the highest scoring driver in 2007 to leave his team. Stewart came back to earth after an incredible 2006 (5 wins, 15 top 5's) to only 2 wins and 10 top 5's, but cut down on DNF's and improved in points from 11th to 6th. His first time not racing for Gibbs in the cup, it will be hard to predict if Stewart dominates or has a quiet 2008.
Projections for 2008:
8 Dale Earnhardt Jr - 2 Wins, 8 Top 5's, 13 Top 10's, 226 Laps Led
14 Tony Stewart - 3 Wins, 11 Top 5's, 18 Top 10's, 402 Laps Led
Derrike Cope Racing
Cars: https://imgur.com/a/p6VRQUw
62 Derrike Cope - DMC Consulting (2007 stats: n/a)
DCR makes its debut in 2008 with the #62 DMC Consulting Dodge with a full time schedule in mind.
Once again, 1990 Daytona 500 champ Derrike Cope returns to the Nextel Cup with another underfunded startup. Cope wants to attempt the full 36 races, but if he makes 12 races his season would be considered a success. In this point in his career, a top 5 would be a larger upset for Cope than his 1990 Daytona 500 victory.
62 Derrike Cope - 0 Wins, 0 Top 5's, 0 Top 10's, 0 Laps Led
Evernham Motorsports
Cars: https://imgur.com/a/CI3Wl9p
9 Kasey Kahne - BudweiseMopar (2007 stats: 4 Wins, 16 Top 5's, 23 Top 10's, 3 Poles, 255 Laps Led, 2nd in points)
10 Scott Riggs - Valvoline/Stanley Tools/CharteCintas (2007 Stats: 1 Win, 2 Top 5's, 7 Top 10's, 0 Poles, 62 Laps Led, 22nd in Points)
19 Elliott Sadler - McDonalds/Ronald McDonald House/Hunt Bros (2007 Stats: 0 Wins, 0 Top 5's, 5 Top 10's, 1 pole, 12 laps led, 24th in Points)
91 Patrick Carpentier - Ragu/Hellman's (Part Time - 2 races) (2007 stats: 2007 Stats: 0 Wins, 0 Top 5's, 0 Top 10's, 2 Laps Led, 52nd in points, 3/36 Races Run)
91 Chase Miller - Ragu/Hellman's (Part Time - 4 races) (2007 stats: n/a)
98 Erin Crocker - Betty Crocker (Part Time - 2 Races)
(2007 stats: n/a)
Evernham Motorsports established themselves as the A team of the Dodge brand with a Daytona 500 victory and a 2nd place points finish. 2008 will be an interesting year, though, as expansion from 3 to 5 cars (although the two new cars are part time) could muddle up the team.
Many expected Kasey Kahne to fall back to earth after an incredible 6 win season in '06, but Kahne continued to show dominance. He fell from 6 victories to 4, but improved from 4th to 2nd in points and had more top 5's and top 10's (16 and 23) than the year before (12 and 19). Kahne is the face of Evernham and Dodge as a manufacture. He gains Budweiser as a primary sponsor for this year, and is a championship contender in 2008.
Scott Riggs shocked the world in 2007 by passing Jimmie Johnson with 2 laps to go to win the Daytona 500. Riggs had his best year to date with a win and several top 10's, showing consistency despite the surprise win. He might fall back to earth in '07, but Evernham's equipment is too good for Riggs to completely bust. A second career win for Riggs isn't out of the question either, but the 10 team probably won't find victory lane this year more than once.
Elliott Sadler had a pretty quiet 2007, falling from 1 Top 5 and 7 Top 10's to 0 Top 5's and 5 Top 10's. Despite being the 2nd best team of the 3 Evernham teams when the 2007 season started, it definitely did not feel like it by the end. 5 Top 10's isn't bad, but Riggs and Kahne had much better results in the same equipment. If Sadler repeats or worsens his 2007 statline, his future at Evernham might be in danger.
Evernham Motorsports owner Ray Evernham gave a press conference late last year stating he wanted to focus on the future for his team and transforming them into a powerhouse with a group of young, talented drivers. He is fielding two different R&D teams for 2008, the #91 team driven by INDYcar vet Patrick Carpentier and Busch Series driver Chase Miller, and the #98 team driven by Erin Crocker. It is surprising that Evernham is diverting so much attention to his R&D teams, but it could be a long term investment. Don't expect much from either of the three drivers with limited time and equipment in 2007 aside from a possible road course upset by Patrick Carpentier, who led at Sonoma last year in one of his starts.

2018.05.29 05:18 ArmenianWave ArmenianWave's Nextel Cup Mock Season - 2007 [Part 6]

Last week, Jeff Gordon, Kurt Busch, and Clint Bowyer got wins. This week we see races 18-20, including two big races in the Pepsi 400 and Brickyard 500.
Race 18/36: Pepsi 400 @ Daytona
Carl Edwards started on the pole for this 72 lap event with Matt Kenseth second. The first wreck occurred on lap 4 that saw Greg Biffle and Dale Jarrett get together in a battle for second. This triggered a huge crash that saw David Ragan flip over. 12 cars retired following the wreck. The second caution was on lap 24, where Kasey Kahne was turned by teammate Elliott Sadler into Boris Said. Kahne flipped over violently and had minor injuries but nothing serious. The final coccurred on lap 51, which was Johnny Sauter and Tony Stewart get together. Kevin Harvick and Bobby Labonte exchanged the lead several times during the race, but Labonte would come out with the victory in a huge boost to Petty Enterprises and Labonte's first win since 2004. It would be the first time the 43 has been in victory lane since 1999. Dale Jarrett finished 3rd, the best finish for a Toyota to date, and a few other suprise finishes were JJ Yeley at 4th, Jeff Green at 9th, and Michael Waltrip at 11th.

Race 19/36: USG Sheetrock 400 @ Chicago
Kasey Kahne would start on the pole for this event with Dale Earnhardt Jr in 2nd. For this race, I forgot to save the replay so I don't have any pictures. The only wreck in this race was on lap 1 and it saw Kyle Petty, Mark Martin, Denny Hamlin, and Ward Burton involved. Kasey Kahne led most the event but Jimmie Johnson was able to get around him with a few laps left to take the win.

Race 20/36: Brickyard 500 presented by Allstate
Once again, Kasey Kahne started on the pole with Dale Jr second for this race. The only crash was on lap 10 with Ward Burton spinning out in a surprisingly uneventful race. The big thing, though, was Dale Earnhardt Jr's domination and victory here. Dale snapped a losing streak since Richmond 2006. He becomes the 13th unique winner this year in 20 events alongside Kenseth, Gordon, Johnson, Stewart, Edwards, Kahne, Harvick, Bowyer, Burton, Kurt Busch, Labonte, & Riggs.

Silly Season News
Ginn Racing will be moving to a 2 car team in 2008, running the #01 US Army car for Mark Martin, and the #13 Certanteed Car for Reagan Smith, who will run for ROTY.
In a huge announcement, Dale Earnhardt Inc have revealed their 2008 plans. Tony Stewart, the hottest free agent right now, will sign with the team to drive the #14 Burger King/Old Spice Chevorlet alongside new teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr in the 8 car. Paul Menard and Martin Truex Jr will both not be returning, as DEI could reportedly not support a 3 car team after the end of 2007. #14 was chosen as a tribute to Tony Stewart's favorite driver, AJ Foyt, and because DEI ran the #14 in the past. The deal reportedely came about due to Stewart's desire to sign with a Chevy team, and Stewart having experience driving for Jr's Busch Series Teams, Chance 2 Racing and JR Motorsports. With DEI no longer using the #1 or #15 in 2008, Michael Waltrip Racing have agreed to renumber the #44 to #15 in '08.
Indycar Driver Dario Franchitti will join Chip Ganassi Racing in 2008 to drive the 40 Juicy Fruit car. David Stremme, who currently drives the 40 car, will move to the 41 to replace Reed Sorenson. Coors Light will reportedly depart Ganassi after the 2007 season, but nothing is official.
After several months of attempting to get things off the ground, Tim Brown Motorsports will launch in 2008 as new Nextel Cup Team. Owned by Tim Brown, the team will have a technical alliance with Roush Racing as NASCAR has forced Roush to limit the amount of cars they can have to 5. Tim Brown Racing will field the #81 Ford, sponsored by Roush partners Lumber Liquidators and World Financial Group. Danny O' Quinn Jr will run for ROTY in the 81 car.
Another blockbuster deal has been made as Kyle Busch and Joe Gibbs Racing have announced Busch to the #18 car in 2008. Also being announced is JJ Yeley's departure from Joe Gibbs Racing. Yeley joins Tony Stewart as drivers leaving JGR and an open spot for the #20 car remains.
Off the heels of a victory in the Pepsi 400, Petty Enterprises have announced an expansion in 2008 to a 3 car team. Bobby Labonte will return to the #43 with Cheerios and STP sponsoring. A new team, the #44, which ran in 2007 as the #49 part time, will be driven by Reed Sorenson. It will be sponsored by Super 8 and Dassault Systemes. The #45 will return with Chad McCumbee and a new sponsor, as Marathon Oil expands from a minor sponsor to a primary sponsor. Petty looks to continue their success in 2008.
Wood Brothers Racing is looking for a new driver in 2008. Ken Schrader was let go due to poor performance and a lack of qualifying for races, and Bill Elliott is currently filling out the rest of the schedule.

2018.01.16 23:53 SkyfallCamaro The 2018 Daytona 500 will mark the first race since 1983 with no #5 car in the field

The 1983 Warner W. Hodgdon American 500 at Rockingham, the 28th race of the season, was the last time when there was no #5 Cup car in the field. Greg Sacks drove the #5 car for himself in the next race, the season finale at Atlanta.
Beginning at the 1984 Daytona 500, the #5 went full-time with Geoffrey Bodine and Rick Hendrick. It has been entered into every Cup race since then for 34 straight years, with other drivers such as Ricky Rudd, Terry Labonte, Todd Bodine, Ron Hornaday, Kyle Busch, Casey Mears, Mark Martin, and Kasey Kahne behind the wheel.
The number has the longest-active streak in Cup competition, even beating out the famous #43 for number of starts during the same timeframe (1984-present). The #43 has not competed in every race since 1984 due to DNQ's by Richard Petty, Wally Dallenbach, Christian Fittipaldi, and Jeff Green, a number change to #44 for the 1993 season, and a number change to #41 for the Fall Martinsville race in 2013.
The #5 car has currently competed in 1,568 Cup races to date, the eighth-highest in NASCAR history. Interestingly, the #9 car ranks ninth on the same list with 1,551 races entered. However, the #9 car will likely pass the #5 this season for number of total starts as Hendrick will be entering the #9 for Chase Elliott beginning at Daytona.
Out of those 1,568 races entered, approximately 82% (1,285 races) were run for a manufacturer under the GM banner including Chevrolet, Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Buick, and Camaro. So even though Hendrick isn't running the #5 this year, there was a #5 Camaro Cup car back in 1971.

Click here for the album
Last year someone made an imgur album containing an updated list of the throwback cars for the Darlington race. Well, I decided to do the same this year in a visual format that's more consistent and hopefully convenient for you guys. In each pic I have the car, the paint scheme it's based off, the number, and the series it's in. Initially I'll only have the raw pictures of the cars but I'll adjust every car to the template eventually. I will try my best to keep this up to date as fast as I can. Hope you enjoy!

2017.06.29 18:11 ZappaOMatic Battle of Daytona: The 2004 Pepsi 400 (Race Sponsor Spotlight)

This week's Race Sponsor Spotlight is being posted on a Thursday instead of its usual Friday date for a few reasons. One of them is that Coca-Cola is sponsoring both of the upcoming races this weekend, a company that I had already covered in the May Charlotte edition. To avoid redundancy, I decided to write about a specific time in Coca-Cola's NASCAR history that also relates to this Saturday's Cup race (making it more of a TBT or a Storytime than a Sponsor Spotlight).
Coca-Cola and Pepsi have been rivals for a long time (see: /sodawars). Both companies have also been major players in NASCAR for years, sponsoring teams, drivers, and races. On one Saturday night, their rivalry flared up in interesting fashion: the 2004 Pepsi 400.
Entering the race, Pepsi was enjoying a 15-year relationship with the Daytona July race dating back to 1989. For the 2001 race, Pepsi sponsored Jeff Gordon; over the three Pepsi 400s from 2001 to 2003, however, Gordon did not have much success, finishing 37th, 22nd, and 14th.
For the 2004 edition, Pepsi decided to use the opportunity to promote Pepsi Edge, a new brand which contained Splenda as a sweetener, along with half the carbohydrates and sugar of a regular Pepsi. During the race, Fox aired two commercials for the drink featuring Stuart Scott and Rich Eisen. At the track on raceday, Pepsi provided 20,000 samples of Edge, along with 30,000 cans when the race ended.
Meanwhile, Coca-Cola elected to take the soda battle to the superspeedway, preparing to use the event as a means of promoting its own low-carb drink, Coca-Cola C2, which uses sucralose to sweeten it. The company scheduled six Harley-Davidson riders to ride around the surrounding area and pass out free samples of the drink. C2 merchandise sold during the weekend led to proceeds that were donated to the Victory Junction Gang Camp. Coke also purchased four full-page ads in NASCAR Scene that were wrapped around the cover of the July 1 issue; Daytona track officials, not wanting to anger Pepsi, removed the ads from the media center.
The Wall Street Journal described the effort of both companies as an attempt to appeal to "male consumers who normally shun existing diet sodas either because of taste or the feminine image of those beverages."
In addition to the riders, Coca-Cola also assembled a fleet of eight cars driving with C2 sponsorship: John Andretti, Greg Biffle, Tony Stewart, Ricky Rudd, Kevin Harvick, Kurt Busch, Bill Elliott, and Jeff Burton; all were members of the Coca-Cola Racing Family, though three drivers (Dale Jarrett, Elliott Sadler, and Bobby Labonte) did not participate. Although he drove with NAPA sponsorship for the race, Michael Waltrip wore a C2 firesuit.
Elliott drove the #98 car owned by himself instead of the #91 Evernham Motorsports car that he was racing on a part-time basis that year, as team owner Ray Evernham had a partnership with (ironically) PepsiCo; PepsiCo-owned Mountain Dew sponsored Evernham's drivers (Kasey Kahne and Jeremy Mayfield) during the year, though did not do so for the 400. Larry Gunselman, who typically drove the #98, switched to #96 for the race.
"I'm looking forward to this," Elliott stated. "Coke's from Georgia and so am I, so for me, this is a really neat deal."
Amusingly, Coke spokesman Scott Williamson described the decision to sponsor so many cars at a race that was sponsored by a competing company as being "much more about the high profile of the race" and its status as an Independence Day weekend race, rather than because of the Coke/Pepsi rivalry.
"This weekend alone just really gave us a huge opportunity to bring together something that has never been done before in the sport," Coke sports marketing VP Bea Perez added. "It really had more to do with the bigness of the race. It's one of the highest-rated races, it also has a lot of fan attendance. People come here not only for the race, they come for the weekend."
"I think we respect the other soda, but Pepsi is probably one of the greatest marketing monsters in all of the country," Daytona president Robin Braig commented. "Their marketing muscle, added to the fact that they have been with this track since day one, will smother any opportunity by our friends from Atlanta."
In contrast, Pepsi officials were not thrilled with Coke's answers and described it as "ambush marketing."
Pepsi racing manager Adam Harter retaliated by saying they were "actually flattered" by Coke's actions. "They obviously didn't think the Coke 600 was a big enough race to bring all these cars and they chose to bring their cars to the Pepsi 400, the best race of the summer. We think it's flattering to have them chase us around a little bit."
"We have always felt we are a little bit above that," he remarked, alluding to Pepsi never doing such a thing at the Coca-Cola 600. "To be quite honest with you, to see a company the size of Coke, a brand that size, come to our race, feels a little bit second-rate in our mind."
Unlike the eight-car team of Coke, Pepsi had only one driver racing with their branding: Gordon, whose #24 promoted the Pepsi Play for a Billion Sweepstakes (and DuPont). Gordon acknowledged the battle between Coke and Pepsi, describing them as "two very competitive companies."
Gordon and Pepsi led the way in qualifying, starting on the pole for the third consecutive race; the Coke drivers qualified as follows: Rudd (3rd), Biffle (9th), Harvick (11th), Stewart (17th), Andretti (18th), Burton (26th), Elliott (34th), and Busch (35th).
After a two-hour rain delay, the race was away. Gordon led the first nine laps before being passed by Waltrip. The race saw 21 lead changes and ten different leaders, including just one Coke driver (Stewart). Gordon and Hendrick teammate Jimmie Johnson dueled with the DEI cars of Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Waltrip for much of the race; with the drafting help of Johnson, Gordon pushed his way past Stewart with seven laps to go and went on to score his 68th career Cup victory and free Pepsi Edge for America.
In Victory Lane, Gordon was quick to knock aside the Coke-owned Powerade bottles on his car's roof to celebrate his win.
"What a big day for Pepsi," he quipped. "There's red cars for some reason, I don't know what they were, but they were in my way, so it was pretty awesome to finish ahead of them!"
Of the C2 cars, Busch and Stewart were the highest finishers at 4th and 5th, respectively. Behind them were Harvick (14th), Rudd (17th), Elliott (18th), Burton (23rd), Biffle (31st), and Andretti (43rd).
Edge and C2 never caught on in the market; the former ended production a year later, while C2 lasted until 2007. Despite lasting two more years, the 70-calorie C2 was quickly overshadowed by the no-calorie Coke Zero. Interestingly, Coke Zero would take over the naming rights of the Daytona July race from Pepsi in 2008, branding it the Coke Zero 400.
Despite the loss in 2004, Coca-Cola redeemed itself in 2005 and 2006 as Stewart drove to victory in both races. After winning the 2006 race, Stewart declared, "They may call this the Pepsi 400, but Coca-Cola still tastes a hell of a lot better."
13 years after the 2004 Pepsi 400, Coca-Cola has kept a steady relationship in NASCAR. The Coca-Cola 600 continues to be the longest-sponsored race in the sport, while it also serves as an associate sponsor of Kyle Larson. For this season, Coca-Cola also took over title sponsorship of Friday's Xfinity race at Daytona, dubbing it the Coca-Cola Firecracker 250. Pepsi has not sponsored a Cup car since Gordon's final season in 2015, though its Mountain Dew brand currently sponsors the HMS cars of Chase Elliott and Earnhardt Jr.
The Soda Wars are pretty interesting, aren't they?

2017.06.15 15:09 AndyBatch Weekly Year-to-Date Driver Ratings or how I spend my free time

When I'm not watching racing or going Marinovich on my son and his future driving career (/s, I don't have Menard money), I'm usually playing with data in excel.
I decided to created a Year-to-Date Driver Ranking that I will update every week. I used what data that I could easily access and transfer to a spreadsheet from racing-reference (wins, avg. finish position, laps completed, laps led, avg. start position, and stage points). I then ranked every driver by their score in each category and applied a weight to each category. The weights were played with until I felt that they were showing what I perceived to be representative of this season's results so far.
(Note: I did not include penalties or encumbered wins, in the rankings)
So without further ado (that felt weird to type), here are my power rankings!

A few interesting points:
My current weight per category (feel free to criticize and suggest adjustments for next week's, my plan is to have the weights finalized after Sonoma, and keep them for as long as I continue to do these!):
Category Numerical Weight Percentage
Finish Position 30.00 35.29%
Laps Completed 5.00 5.88%
Laps Led 15.00 17.65%
Stage Points 15.00 17.65%
Start Position 5.00 5.88%
Wins 15.00 17.65%
The formula I use to rank looks at the driver's ranking per each category and subtracts that from the total number of Cup point declared drivers plus one, multiplies that result by the weighted percentage, and divides it by the total number of Cup point declared drivers (i.e., MTJ is ranked first in laps completed, so [(41+1-1)*5.88%]/41). That result is added together with the other categories' results to give a score on a 0 to 1 basis (I like this idea, as I used to do CFB rankings and it was easy to compare with the BCS scoring).
Once again, feel free to criticize! I'll look to post on Monday or Tuesday of every week!
