NASCAR Quaker State 400, Kentucky Speedway: Reutimann finishes 2nd, Johnson 3rd

The inaugural NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Kentucky Speedway will be remembered for a long, long time for the traffic problems on Interstate 71 as the race itself.

An estimated crowd of 107,000 who did get into the race for the Quaker State 400 on Saturday, saw a very competitive race under ideal conditions.

David Reutimann, driving the #00 Toyota for Michael Waltrip Racing, finished second behind race winner Kyle Busch.

2011 has not been kind to Reutimann, as he has finished had a tough time of it. In 20 races, he had garnered a 3rd place finish at the NASCAR All-Star race on May 21.  He then finished ninth in the Coca-Cola 600 the next weekend on May 29.

Jimmie Johnson, who has won the NASCAR championship a record five straight years, came in third driving the #48 Lowes Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports. Johnson is very much in the hunt for The Chase this year. He has one first-place finish, one second-place, three 3rd place spots and two 4th place finishes.

As planned, the race went into its first caution on Lap 30 for a competition yellow.

#60 Mike Skinner, the winner of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events at the Kentucky Speedway in 2007, was the first car off the track, headed into the garage after completing 17 laps.

Week 4 in Nascar Schedule: Atlanta Motor Speedway

Atlanta Motor Speedway (ams)

Can the red-hot number 48 Lowes Chevrolet team led by Jimmie Johnson make it three wins in a row?

NASCAR moves into dixieland this week at the Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Ga., which is 30 miles  south of Atlanta. The seating capacity is 113,000 on a quad-oval track. The Kobalt Tools 500 will be on March 7 on Fox TV at 1 p.m. This is the 50th anniversary of the speedway and Atlanta has hosted more 500-mile races (93) than any other NASCAR facility.

Renovations at the facility turned th speedway into NASCAR’s fastest 1.5 mile track. The asphalt is banked in the turns.

Since Jimmie Johnson’s sweep in 2007, two Dodges, a Ford, and a Toyota have won at Atlanta. Fireball Roberts won the first NASCAR event in Atlanta, the 1960 Dixie 200.

Recapping the 2009 race, Kurt Busch dominated, leading 234 of the 330 laps in his Miller Lite Dodge, but needed to get past Carl Edwards with two laps to go to win the race. Jeff Gordon, who led 47 laps, also slipped past Edwards for second. Mark Martin, the pole-sitter finished 31st.
