By Luis Torres, Staff Writer BK Racing arrived at Daytona International Speedway last Saturday morning, unloading a white unsponsored No. 23 Toyota. Gray Gaulding also arrived as a spectator without a secured ride in Sunday’s 60th Daytona 500. Rumors ran like wildfire on who’s driving the car but hours later, the 20-year-old Colonial Heights, Virginia native was confirmed as the driver. Now entering Thursday’s Can-Am Duels, Gaulding, with Earthwater as his primary sponsor, will enter the weekend with a positive attitude despite the ongoing off-track drama involving his race team.

By David Morgan, NASCAR Editor Every year, the underdog teams of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series circle the restrictor plate tracks of Daytona and Talladega as their chances to finish in the top-10 or contend for a race win, and Saturday night’s Coke Zero 400 was yet another example of those tracks serving as the great equalizer. Along with Michael McDowell finishing fourth, two other underdog teams, Front Row Motorsports (David Ragan) and Beard Motorsports (Brendan Gaughan), brought home top-10 finishes, with their respective sixth and seventh place finishesRead More
By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Writer Last year, Alon Day became the first Israeli-born driver to compete in both the NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. The Ashdod, Israel, native turned heads at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course when he ran well inside the Top 10 and top five for much of the race before getting spun on the final lap and finishing 13th. Day, a regular in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series, will now make his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series debut in the BK Racing No. 23Read More
By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Writer After 13 starts with BK Racing, Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Gray Gaulding will not compete for the team in Sunday’s FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway. This comes one week after it was announced that crew chief Patrick Donahue and BK Racing would part ways after Pocono and Doug George would assume crew chief duties of the No. 23 Toyota Camry.

By Toby Christie, NASCAR Editor On most weeks in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, only the super teams (such as Hendrick Motorsports, Team Penske, Joe Gibbs Racing and a few others) should really expect to end their day in victory lane. In order to win at intermediate 1.5-mile speedways it takes teams of engineers, and millions of dollars just to finish inside the top-10. Talladega though, is a different animal. Instead of gobs of resources, it just takes an unrelenting will to win and incredible intestinal fortitude to conquer the day atRead More
By Joey Barnes, Editor-in-Chief It was an eventful afternoon in the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway. Carl Edwards took home the trophy, but with so many storylines coming out of the half-mile oval, our weekly segment can’t cover them all, but we’ll try to get the more notable ones. So, without any further delay here are my biggest takeaways from Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. 1) Hit or miss For Joe Gibbs Racing, Sunday really was a tale of hit or miss. Edwards did take home theRead More
