By David Morgan, Associate Editor CHICAGO – Shane van Gisbergen will not be able to defend his NASCAR Chicago Street Race win after a crash in the rain with just 25 laps completed in Sunday’s Grant Park 165. Entering the day as the presumptive favorite to win again on the 12-turn, 2.2-mile street course in Downtown Chicago and sweep the weekend following his NASCAR Xfinity Series win on Saturday, the New Zealander seemed to be up to his old tricks again in the early laps on Sunday before Mother Nature hadRead More
By Holly Cain, NASCAR Wire Service LOUDON, N.H. – Christopher Bell continued his dominance at New Hampshire Motor Speedway claiming a sweep of the NASCAR race weekend, but the Joe Gibbs Racing driver really had to earn that “broom” in Sunday’s weather-challenged USA Today 301. The 29-year-old Oklahoman beat Stewart-Haas Racing’s Chase Briscoe to the finish line by 1.104-second in overtime in a race that lasted six hours including a two-hour-plus rain delay and ultimately ended with the field on damp surface tires; only the second time in NASCAR historyRead More

Saturday New Hampshire Notebook

By Holly Cain, NASCAR Wire Service LOUDON, N.H. – NASCAR Cup Series qualifying was cancelled Saturday afternoon because of inclement weather at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Sunday’s USA Today 301 (2 p.m. ET on USA Network, PRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) starting lineup will instead be based on a metric including owners points, driver points, last week’s race finishing position and last week’s fastest laps. NASCAR Cup Series championship leader, Hendrick Motorsports’ Chase Elliott will start from pole position, alongside reigning series champion, Team Penske’s Ryan Blaney. “To be honest, IRead More
By David Morgan, Associate Editor Gene Haas is turning back the clock to 2008 for the future endeavors of his NASCAR Cup Series operation. With Stewart-Haas Racing closing its doors as we know it at the end of the 2024 Cup Series season, the overarching opinion was that the entire operation was done for, but on Thursday, the future for the team became a bit clearer. Haas, the co-owner of Stewart-Haas Racing, announced that instead of all four of the team’s Cup charters going up on the market, he would beRead More
By David Morgan, Associate Editor NEWTON, Iowa – Kyle Larson will start from pole for Sunday’s sold-out Iowa Corn 350 at Iowa Speedway, turning the fastest lap in a weather-delayed qualifying session on Saturday afternoon. Rolling out as the last car in the field to make a lap on the partially repaved 0.875-mile oval, Larson posted a lap of 23.084 seconds, 136.458 mph, to knock defending NASCAR Cup Series champion Ryan Blaney off the top of the board.

By David Morgan, Associate Editor NEWTON, Iowa – Iowa’s partial repave was the talk of the NASCAR Cup Series garage area coming into Iowa Corn 350 weekend, but after Friday’s lone practice session, tires have become the main concern. By the time all was said and done, more than a handful of drivers had issues with their tires being unable to cope with the mix-and-match between the old and new Iowa pavement. Noah Gragson finished the 63-minute practice session at the top of the board with a lap of 22.828 seconds,Read More
By David Morgan, Associate Editor NEWTON, Iowa – Build it and they will come…. eventually. After nearly two decades in existence, Iowa Speedway finally gets the call for a NASCAR Cup Series date this weekend, marking the latest track to host NASCAR’s premier series. The 0.875-mile oval in Central Iowa, a brainchild of NASCAR Hall of Famer Rusty Wallace, has hosted three of the lower-level NASCAR series – Xfinity, Trucks, and ARCA – over the years, which only amplified the calls for the Cup Series to visit and the fans inRead More
By David Morgan, Associate Editor A mainstay of the NASCAR Cup Series since 2009, Stewart-Haas Racing announced on Tuesday that the 2024 season would be its last and would be ceasing operations at season’s end. Rumors of the team’s future have been floating around the Cup Series garage for many months and weeks, but in a joint statement on social media, co-owners Tony Stewart and Gene Haas laid out why now is the time they have elected to exit stage left. “We have made the difficult decision to close Stewart-Haas RacingRead More
By Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service DARLINGTON, S.C. — A combination of stubbornness and patience paid off handsomely for Brad Keselowski on Sunday at Darlington Raceway, where the driver of the No. 6 Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing Ford ended a 110-race winless streak with victory in the Goodyear 400. Keselowski’s triumph, which came at the expense of hard-luck teammate Chris Buescher and pole winner Tyler Reddick, gave the Ford Dark Horse Mustang its first NASCAR Cup Series victory this season in 13 races and led to a heated exchange betweenRead More
By Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Christopher Bell lives for the thrill of qualifying on intermediate speedways. But at this point, he’d probably give his eye teeth just to finish a race on Sunday. Navigating Kansas Speedway in an impressive 29.491 seconds (183.107 mph) in the final round of NASCAR Cup Series time trials on Saturday afternoon, Bell won the pole position for Sunday’s AdventHealth 400 (3 p.m. ET on FS1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). He’ll share the front row with Chevrolet driver Ross ChastainRead More
