Ford 400 Race Review: Tony Stewart Wins The Sprint Cup Championship; Carl Edwards Will Contend For Championship In 2012.
Tony Stewart took the checkered flag in Sunday’s rain-interrupted Ford 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway to win the NASCAR Sprint Cup championship in a tiebreaker over race runner-up Carl Edwards.
Contract negotiations between Richard Childress Racing and Clint Bowyer have reached an impasse that will result in the driver leaving the team at season’s end.
Robby Gordon announced Friday afternoon at Bristol that he has no plans of giving Danica Patrick the No. 7 when she enters the Sprint Cup Series next season.
With Danica Patrick driving part time for Stewart Haas Racing in the Sprint Cup Series, SHR could be in the market for a part time driver to split time with her. Mark Martin seems like a logical choice.
After two years of running a partial schedule in NASCAR, Danica Patrick has officially made the switch from the IZOD IndyCar Series to NASCAR full time in 2012.
Danica Patrick is expected to announce her intent to move to NASCAR full time in 2012, according to ESPN.com. Patrick will drive the no. 7 JR Motorsports Chevy in the Nationwide Series with sponsorship from GoDaddy.com. She will also drive select Sprint Cup Series races in Chevys prepared by Stewart Haas Racing.
Danica Patrick is finalizing a deal to run full time in the Nationwide Series and select Sprint Cup events in 2012, according to the Associated Press.
Stewart Haas dominates; Denny Hamlin and Jimmie Johnson recover from spins; Dale Earnhardt Jr continues struggling; and Kyle Busch loses points lead.
Ryan Newman and Tony Stewart started 1-2 in Sunday’s Lenox Industrial Tools 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, and not even a fuel crisis, a wild jumble of divergent strategies or a crew chief with pneumonia could prevent them from finishing that way.
