NASCAR RACE #20 PREVIEW: Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, today at 1:00 p.m.

 

The NASCAR Sprint Cup moves into the midwest city of Indianapolis for the Crown Royal “Your Hero’s Name Here” 400 at the Brickyard.

Race time is 1:00 p.m. on ESPN.

The 400-mile race consists of 160 laps on the 2.5-mile oval and a crowd of 250,000-plus is expected.

The famous brickyard is best known to everyone as the home of the Indianapolis 500 which occurs every May around Memorial Day.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which was built in 1909, is now an asphalt track with flat straightaways.

IMS has the claim as the world’s largest spectator sporting venue with permanent seating reaching 250,000 or more.

The track was paved in 1909 with 3.2 million bricks. A “yard of bricks” is at the starting-finish line.

RECAPPING THE 2011 BRICKYARD 400:

Paul Menard earned his first Sprint Cup win, holding off crowd-favorite, Jeff Gordon by 0.7 seconds. His crew chief’s pit strategy helped Menard lead 11 of the final 16 laps.

Jamie McMurray, the last driver to surrender the lead, finished fourth in the race. Kasey Kahne started the race second and led a high of 48 laps but finished a disappointing 18th.

Menard’s dad, John, has been a car owner for many drivers in the Indy 500.

The top 10 starting lineup with their qualifying speed for this year’s race includes:

Ragan wins Coke Zero 400 at Daytona

 

Back in February of this year, David Ragan could’ve won the Daytona 500. He lined up as the leader on a late restart in the season-opening race for NASCAR, but was penalized for passing too early, and the win went to Trevor Bayne.

Saturday night at Daytona, Ragan got redemption as he won his first Sprint Cup victory of his career in winning the Coke Zero 400.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. has not won a NASCAR Sprint Cup race in nearly three years and Sunday night in Concord, North Carolina, it seemed like he was going to “kick the door down” finally.

But in the last half-lap, he ran out of gas and Kevin Harvick took advantage coming out of the final turn to win the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, NASCAR’s longest race of the season.

The win was Harvick’s third win of the season in his Chevrolet.

Earnhardt dropped to seventh place and saw his winless streak go to 105 races.

David Ragan finished second in a Ford, Joey Logano took third followed by Kurt Busch and AJ Allmendinger.

NASCAR driver Carl Edwards has had a hot start to the current season, the best start of his career.

He received a gift in winning the most recent Sprint Cup race, an error by Tony Stewart.

Stewart had the dominate car  in the Kobalt Tools 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, but he committed a penalty on pit road which hurt his chances of winning.

Stewart was the race leader when he was penalized for leaving his pit stall with the air hose still attached to his Chevy.

Edwards, driving in a Roush Fenway Racing Ford, pulled away for the win, while Stewart dropped to 22nd after the four-tire stop, finished second.

The win was the 19th of his career.

Juan Pablo Montoya in a Chevrolet finished third and Marcos Ambrose in a Ford ended up fourth and Ryan Newman in another Chevy, finished fifth.
