Roush Fenway Racing re-signs Edwards

NASCAR driver Carl Edwards was trying to decide between staying at Roush Fenway Racing or to accept an offer from Joe Gibbs Racing.

On Thursday, Edwards announced that he was staying with owner Jack Roush’s team. He is the current points leader in the Sprint Cup Series, competing for his first Cup championship.

This week with a new deal in hand, Edwards heads to Pocono Raceway in Lake Pond, Pennsylvania with an 11-point lead over five-time defending series champion Jimmie Johnson.

Roush Fenway Racing has four drivers under contract in Matt Kenseth, Greg Biffle and David Ragan.

The likeable Edwards has been with Roush since 2002, when he got his first break in NASCAR. He started in the Truck Series, then was elevated to the Cup series by 2004 as a late-season replacement for Jeff Burton.

In 2005, Edwards became a serious NASCAR star driver by winning a four times that season.

The best season for Edwards was 2008, when he was victorious a series-high nine times and finished second to Johnson in the championship race. He struggled in 2009.

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.

The 25-year-old’s win moved him to 17th in the standings, and two spots in the Chase will go to the winningest drivers ranked between 11 and 20.

Matt Kenseth finished second to give Roush Fenway Racing the top two spots for Ford.

Joey Logano was third, Kasey Kahne fourth and Kyle Busch fifth.

Hamlin holds off Kenseth to win at Michigan

 

Denny Hamlin knocked the monkey off his back by winning his first NASCAR Sprint Cup race of the year on Sunday at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Michigan.

Hamlin, in his #11 FedEx Express Toyota, held off Matt Kenseth. The two drivers were engaged in a fuel-mileage finish, but a late caution flag enabled them to take pit stops before the closing five-lap sprint to the finish.

Kenseth was the only driver who had any kind of shot at catching Hamlin in the final laps. Kenseth tried to go high and low to try and pass Hamlin, but was not successful in doing so.

Hamlin has typically done well at Michigan. It was his second straight win at the track. He won by 0.281 of a second.

Kyle Busch finished third, giving Joe Gibbs Racing two of the top three spots.

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.
