Nationwide Series Breakdown: 2010 Meijer 300

Surprise, surprise. Joey Logano won the pole. Joey Logano won Saturday night’s Nationwide Series race at Kentucky. And Cup regulars finished 1-2-3, with Carl Edwards and Brad Keselowski playing bridesmaid to Logano, whose win marked the third consecutive season he’s won the Kentucky NNS race from the pole dating back to his first career win.

Though a few drivers were able to keep up with his No. 20 car on restarts, the long run proved to be a boon for JGR’s Toyotas as Logano was uncontested coming to the checkers. Fortunately for the fans watching, both Scott Wimmer and Brendan Gaughan (who each banked top 10 finishes) were able to keep up with Sliced Bread for at least a few laps. Mike Bliss also got around the No. 20 at lap 156, but he would spin late after losing the lead, finishing 24th.

Last week at Daytona International Speedway, Randy Moss announced he had purchased 50% of Morgan-Dollar Motorsports from team owner David Dollar rather than starting his team from the ground up. Morgan-Dollar Motorsports has now become Randy Moss Motorsports, and the No. 46 truck is now the No. 81, the number Moss wears on the football field. Though the announcement earlier this season of his interest in the series seemed to come out of nowhere, Randy Moss has had thoughts of running a NASCAR team for a while.

Earlier this week, the Texas State Attorney General’s office filed a civil suit against Green Light Racing owner Gene Christensen claiming he, along with board members of his charity People Against Drugs (PAD) Affordable Housing, violated the Texas Nonprofit Corporation Act. Christensen is accused of using nearly $2 million to fund both his Craftsman Truck Series team and his failed congressional race earlier this year.

Tearing Apart the Trucks: 2008 Season Preview, Part I

It’s hard to believe it’s that time again. The offseason is quickly coming to a close, and people are already making predictions and talking about offseason changes.
