Think Small With Target pulling out of motorsports after this year, it leaves just two NASCAR teams on the circuit using a single primary sponsor for all 36 races. Jimmie Johnson‘s No. 48 has backing from Lowe’s (and Kobalt Tools, manufactured and sold by the store) while the No. 11 run by Denny Hamlin has FedEx.  That leaves …

Nationwide Series Breakdown: 2009 Meijer 300 at Kentucky

Finally, someone has Kyle Busch’s number. And it’s his teammate. Running his first Nationwide Series race since an incident that saw him knock Busch from the lead at Dover with two laps to go, Joey Logano beat his teammate without the chrome horn on Saturday… and took the checkers for his trouble. On a late …

Nationwide Series Breakdown: 2008 Bashas’ Supermarkets 200 at Phoenix

In what’s becoming a running theme in the Nationwide Series this season, Kyle Busch led four times for 133 laps en route to his second consecutive win during the race Friday night. But he wasn’t unchallenged; in fact, Busch held off a furious late-race charge from Carl Edwards, who enjoyed his best Nationwide run of the season with a second-place finish. However, it wasn’t enough to slow down Busch, who won by a little over a quarter of a second; the victory marked his second consecutive win in this series at the Phoenix International Raceway.

Nationwide Series Breakdown: 2008 Stater Brothers 300 at Fontana

The Nationwide Series played second fiddle to the Cup series on Monday afternoon, starting their race an hour after the big boys took the checkered flag. That meant that 12 drivers were running almost 700 miles thanks to the delay of the Cup race and the postponement of the Nationwide race. However, it didn’t make much difference to Tony Stewart, who ran away with much of the event.

Nuts For Nationwide: 2008 Series Preview, Part I

It’s all change as the second-most popular racing series in America gears up for another three country, 26-track, 35-race marathon. One of the biggest adjustments this season is the change in title sponsor. After 26 years, the Busch brand is bowing out with Nationwide Insurance signing on the dotted line for the next seven years. The incoming insurance giant will pony up a reported $70 million with their deal set to run concurrently with the TV package through 2013. That sort of money isn’t exactly chump change and you can be certain Nationwide will be seeking a substantial return on their investment, if not in the immediate future then certainly as the sponsorship plays out across the next seven years.

Busch Series Breakdown: 2007 Ford 300 at Homestead

It appeared Kevin Harvick was headed for yet another Busch Series victory on Saturday, but after leading 84 of the first 140 laps, a pit-road penalty cost him the race. After a tire was left out of the pit box, Harvick restarted at the back of the field and was never able to recover. With Harvick out of the equation, Jeff Burton charged to the front, dominating the last quarter of the race. Burton led 49 of the last 60 laps and held off a furious late-race charge by Mark Martin.

Did You Notice? The 2007 Lifelock 400 at Kansas… And Beyond

Did You Notice? How quickly Greg Biffle was ready with a story when he exited his car in Kansas’ Victory Lane? Whether you believe NASCAR made the right call or not, listening to the way in which the No. 16 driver handled the scenario certainly made it hard to believe that car would have lasted another three laps. I’d put $10,000 on the line to see that car started in the current condition it was on Sunday after hearing Biffle speak.
