NASCAR RACE #22 PREVIEW: Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway

The NASCAR Sprint Cup moves back into the Midwest as it settles into the famous brickyard of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Brickyard 400 presented by a new sponsor, BigMachineRecords.com!

The race will start from Indianapolis, Indiana at 1:00 p.m. On ESPN.

The Brickyard is 400 miles which breaks down to 160 laps on the 2.5 oval.

A crowd of 250,000 is expected.

This world’s most famous racing facility is best known for the Indianapolis 500 which runs every May right before Memorial Day. The Brickyard as it is called, was built in 1909 and is actually asphalt with flat straightaways. The track was paved in late 1909 with 3.2 million paving bricks. The “Yard of Bricks” remains at the start/finish line.

Rewinding to the 2010 Brickyard 400 race, Juan Pablo Montoya led 86 of 160 laps, but it was Jamie McMurray who took the lead from Kevin Harvick on the final restart and led the final 11 laps. Montoya was involved in a crash with Dale Earnhardt Jr. on lap 147 of 160.

Harvick finished second, Greg Biffle third, Clint Bowyer fourth and Tony Stewart fifth.

The win by McMurray was very sweet for car owner Chip Ganassi, who celebrated his first Daytona 500 win, had Dario Franchitti win the Indy Racing League’s Indy 500 and won the Brickyard 400 in 2010.

Those achievements allowed Ganassi to become the first owner to win the “Triple Crown” of American auto racing in one season.

The top drivers at the Brickyard 400 are Jeff Gordon with four wins and Tony Stewart with two.

On the pole for the 2011 race is David Ragan, driver of the #6 UPS/Hall of Fame/Ned Jarrett Ford.

The NASCAR Sprint Cup circuit pays a visit to the Midwest Sunday (today) for the Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips 400 at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Michigan.

Race time on the TNT Network is 1 p.m.

Brooklyn, Michigan is located in the scenic Irish Hills area of Southwestern Michigan. The 2000 U.S. Census had the town’s population at 1,176 people. The villagae was founded in 1832 by Calvin Swain who named it Swainsville but the town council changed the name to Brooklyn in 1836.

The 400 mile race is 200 laps on the 2-mile race track.

Located on a 1,400-acre site, the wide, saucer-shaped oval surface allows the drivers to choose their grooves, which is a combination of balance, using downforce and grip. The drivers can run low, high or in the middle and it’s easy to pass.

The top drivers at MIS when it comes to winning includes: Bill Elliott with 7, Mark Martin with 5 and there are four drivers with two wins each, Greg Biffle, Jeff Gordon, Matt Kenseth and Carl Edwards.

In reviewing the 2010 Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips 400 race, Denny Hamlin was very dominant, opening up a lead of nine seconds before a caution flag came out due to debris on lap 182. Hamlin led the race for 123 of the 200 laps to beat out Kasey Kahne and Kurt Busch.

Greg Biffle wins NASCAR race at Kansas Speedway to stay in The Chase

Up until Sunday’s race in Kansas City, Kansas, Greg Biffle had had two poor races to start the Chase.

Biffle clawed back into the title chase as he won the third race of 10 at the Kansas Speedway.

Jimmie Johnson is back on top of the NASCAR leaderboard after rallying from as low as 21st in the race to finish second behind Biffle. The four-time defending champion Johnson now has an eight-point lead over Denny Hamlin who was leading by 35 points at the start of the race.

Next week’s race is in California, where four of Johnson’s five career wins have come in the last six races there.

Nine drivers left the state of Kansas separated by 101 points. It’s the closest the Chase field has been after three races since the NASCAR governing body switched to the format in 2004.

Hamlin had his first “off” race of the Chase. Just like Jimmie Johnson, he struggled early in the race. His crew made just enough adjustments for a 12th-place finish which evaporated his 35-point lead.
