Kurt Busch wins the All-Star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway

compiled from staff, wire and NASCAR news

Kurt Busch is the winner of the 2010 NASCAR All-Star race. Busch had no trouble closing out the victory after several late restarts. He edged out Martin Truex, Jr., who won the preliminary Sprint Showdown to transfer into the main event, by 0.358 seconds.

Joey Logano finished third.

Four-time defending series champion Jimmie Johnson dominated the race, leading 56 of the 100 laps, but was knocked fro the lead by the funny and quirky format. He was leading heading into the 10-minute break that precedes the last segment, which calls for teams to make one lap and return to pit road for a four-tire pit stop.

Johnson came out of the pits third behind Denny Hamlin and Busch and never led again in the race.

Brad Keselowski wins Nationwide race at Talladega

Brad Keselowski was almost benched this past Sunday from competing in the Nationwide Series race. He was involved in an earlier Cup race, sending his carbon monoxide level soaring past NASCAR’s limit to drive a race car.

Keselowski needed an oxygen mask for the majority of his break between races, then went out and won the Nationwide event at Talladega Superspeedway in a wild finish to end 850 miles of racing Sunday.

Keselowski won his first race for Penske Racing.  He said his carbon monoxide level after the Sprint Cup race was at 13-nearly triple Nascar’s required numeric level to drive a stock car. Brad said if the race had started 5 minutes earlier, he wouldn’t have been allowed to race.

Team owner Roger Penske asked Sam Hornish, Jr. to standby in case of an emergency. After 45 minutes of breathing through an oxygen mask, Keselowski was given the green light to dive the number 22 Dodge.

Kevin Harvick and Jamie McMurray seemed poised down the stretch to duplicate their thrilling 1-2 finish in the Sprint Cup race held first on Sunday. But McMurray shook loose on the overtime laps and was responsible for a scary wreck that nearly sent Dennis Setzer flying over the fence.

Setzer went airborne, crashed into the safety fence and his car was on fire as it skidded down the track.

This is only the second year team owner Roger Penske is fielding a full-time Nationwide program. Keselowski was added in 2010 to make it a two-car operation with Justin Allgaier, who gave Penske his first career series win this month at Bristol when he beat Keselowski in a 1-2 Penske Racing finish. Keselowski leads in the points standings.

Joey Logano finished second and Kevin Harvick was third.

Harvick, Keselowski and Logano were three of the 10 drivers who pulled double duty and drove about 850 miles after rain wiped out Saturday’s scheduled race. It was the second straight race weekend that NASCAR had a Cup-Nationwide doubleheader because of rain. The drivers had to drive twice the previous Monday at Texas Motor Speedway and drove a combined 801 miles.

Brad’s win comes just a few days after Penske Racing landed Shell Oil’s sponsorship for next season. The new partnership makes Pennzoil the primary sponsor for Kurt Busch, who will move to the number 22 Dodge. Miller Light will shift its sponsorship to Keselowski.

Penske has said that he is committed to bringing back Ohio native Sam Hornish in 2011 and finding him sponsorship. Penske expects to again field two-cars in the Nationwide Series in 2011.

It was Busch’s second consecutive Nationwide victory, third this season and 33rd of his career. Only Mark Martin (48) and Kevin Harvick (36) have more career victories.

Busch beat teammate Joey Logano, the polesitter, by 0.688 seconds.

There were eight laps to go on the “Paper Clip” track at Martinsville Motor Speedway when Denny Hamlin and his crew chief Mike Ford had a huge decision to make to try and win the race. There was a caution out on the track at the time. The thinking was to stop at pit road while the other cars stayed out on the track with old tires.  Or if they kept on racing, the rest would stop and pit, get fresh tires and would run them down.

They decided to pit and Hamlin made all of that complicated thinking work as he worked his way to a fantastic and exciting finish at Martinsville Speedway, advancing from ninth place by basically playing “bogart”, bull-rushing and steamrolling his way through the field on the shortest, oldest track in NASCAR.

Hamlin passed Ryan Newman, Matt Kenseth and race leader Jeff Gordon following the final restart to earn his third career victory at the southwest Virginia track.

Hamlin dangerous moved through the first turn, forcing a three-wide racing which is tough on the 0.526-mile race track moving into fourth place before his teammate Kyle Busch spun out, causing a key and timely caution.

Then a two-lap sprint was going to win the race. Hamlin on the re-start when right past Newman then went past Kenseth and Gordon who were both on older tires and he slid underneath for the win.

Joey Logano, Hamlin’s teammate with Joe Gibbs Racing, finished second, followed by Jeff Gordon, Ryan Newman, Martin Truex, Jr.  Jimmie Johnson was nowhere to be found and finished ninth.

compiled from staff and wire reports

Joey Logano with some fast times in practice Friday, has captured the first pole of his career at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Kurt Busch, winner of the last NASCAR race March 7 in Atlanta, qualified second with a lap at 123.857 in his Dodge. Busch credits his fast start in 2010 to his new crew chief Steve Addington, who helped lead his brother, Kyle Busch to a pair of wins at Bristol last year. Kurt Busch is a five-time winner at Bristol, but hasn’t been to Victory Lane at the Tennessee track since 2006.

Dave Blaney, who qualified fourth at Bristol in August 2009, has moved up to third this year at 123.849.

Says Logano, “I’ve always been fast here and I’ve done everything but have an uneventful race.”
