AP on Yahoo ^ | 5/22/07 | Jenna FRyer - ap
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - NASCAR will use the Car of Tomorrow exclusively in 2008, a year earlier than planned. The COT was scheduled to run 16 races this season and be phased into competition during the next two years. But costs skyrocketed while car owners tried to maintain two programs — the current car, and the COT — and NASCAR said Wednesday it will move up the date if teams agreed. “The majority of car owners actually came to us and said ‘Now that we are up and running the car, it doesn’t make sense to have two parallel programs moving...

American Heroes Memorial Day Tribute


Eight Nextel Cup drivers and two Busch drivers will lead all NASCAR fans in the American Heroes Memorial Day salute to the armed forces on Sunday, May 27th, at Lowe’s Motor Speedway to kick off a nationwide effort to raise funds for military families in need.

Participating drivers include #16-Greg Biffle [Busch Series], #4-Ward Burton, #8-Dale Earnhardt, Jr., #24-Jeff Gordon, #11-Denny Hamlin, #88-Shane Huffman [Busch Series], #48-Jimmie Johnson, #01-Mark Martin, #25-Casey Mears and #47-Jon Wood. The cars were unveiled Tuesday at Lowe’s Motor Speedway in Charlotte, N.C. Distinguished members of the military kicked off the American Heroes tribute in grand style with a military color guard presentation and the presentation of the cars that will run in the Coca-Cola 600 on Memorial Day weekend to show their support for America’s armed forces.

The NASCAR team owners, sponsors, drivers and employees donated the space on their cars to collectively thank the armed forces at the Coca-Cola 600.

The American Heroes Memorial Day Tribute is being supported by Sprint Nextel, which will conduct a national fundraising campaign to encourage Sprint Nextel customers to support the troops with their donations to the USO. Diecast models and officially licensed merchandise of the participating drivers will be available for sale through Motorsports Authentics. The American Heroes program hopes to raise significant funds for American military families in need through the effort.

Cool!

NASCAR to salute military through American Heroes
By Joe Menzer, NASCAR.COM
May 9, 2007

http://cgi.nascar.com/2007/news/headlines/official/05/08/american.heros.salute/index.html

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — For Lt. Gen. Clyde A. Vaughn of the Army National Guard, teaming up with NASCAR for a special tribute to the armed forces this Memorial Day seemed a natural.

“NASCAR is about people,” Vaughn said Tuesday. “Everything they do is about the team approach. It’s the same way with the services. Our core value is people. As technology catches up, unless you’ve got superior people and the teamwork to go with it, you’ll never turn out on top.

“They do exactly what we do. We’re very much respectful of the way they conduct their business. The tribute they give to our nation before every race that starts, their everyday caring about soldiers and the way the conduct themselves, we’re very proud of them and it’s a great sport to be associated with for us.”

Vaughn was at Lowe’s Motor Speedway to help announce the American Heroes Memorial Day salute to the armed forces that will take place at LMS prior to the Coca-Cola 600 on May 27.

He has also helped his older brother to grow , sort of,, especially after wrecking him.

DEI Drops Appeal of Penalties: UPDATE: Dale Earnhardt Inc. dropped its appeal of penalties levied against #8-Dale Earnhardt Jr. and his crew chief for illegal modifications made to the Car of Tomorrow.

The appeal was scheduled to be heard Wednesday, but the team informed NASCAR on Tuesday it will not fight the penalties. Earnhardt was docked 100 points and crew chief Tony Eury Jr. was fined $100,000 and suspended six races after NASCAR discovered illegal brackets on the rear wing of the #8 Chevy at Darlington.(Associated Press)

UPDATE: DEI issued the following statement: “The rules are black and white,” said Richie Gilmore, DEI’s Vice President of Motorsports. “We were clearly in violation of those rules and accept the penalties handed down by NASCAR. Going forward, we’ve reviewed our internal processes and procedures to insure something like this doesn’t happen again.”

The Bay Area Midgets that raced at Redwood Acres Sunday run 400 HP four banger engines. The main was won by a 17 year old girl. I heard they were doing 130 to 140 on a 3/8 paved track. I will need to confirm that before I commit it to memory...

I was wondering if what happened to me Sat. night happened to anyone else?

I've got DirecTV w/ their HOT PASS package.

At exactly 10:00pm with 2 laps to go in the AllStar race, some idiot at DTV reboots my receiver.

When my service was restored, Kevin was in Victory Circle.

Mark Martin has always been my favorite. Although I was disheartened when he left Roush and went to Ginn. But since Mark is in the ARMY CAR 01, I still continue to pull for him. It means a lot to the troops because they always want to know how the Army Car finished.
With a son in Iraq, who could go wrong in picking Mark Martin to win? And the US Army is a winner as well!
2nd choice Carl Edwards. Takin Care of Business!

ON IMPORTANCE OF THIS PROMOTION TO HIM: “Budweiser is very adamant and very serious about their relationship with the military and so am I. Very proud of it. I think that with the country at war and everything going on right now, we have to try to show not only that we are patriotic, but also show our support for the troops. The biggest thing right now, is trying help those guys’ morale any time we can. To have been in that situation for so many years and now cycling back through, every little bit of show of support helps those guys and makes them feel better. I am sure it isn’t an easy road over there like I said, to be over there and cycling back there. They have all been there longer that I think they anticipated. Any kind of show of support that we can give them from over here will hopefully make a little bit of difference.”
