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:

The 11th race of the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup season is the Southern 500 from Darlington Raceway in South Carolina. The track is known for its egg-shaped design.

The night race starts at 6:30 p.m. on FOX.

The 500-mile race on a 1.366 length track, will actually be 501.3 miles over 367 laps.

Seating capacity is 63,000.

Built in 1950, Darlington was the first paved speedway to host NASCAR events, has become known to fans and drivers as the “Track Too tough to Tame” and the “Lady in Black”.

This is a race where all drivers usually end up with a few scrapes to the right side of their cars because of the tight corners on Turns 3 and 4.

RECAPPING THE 2011 SHOWTIME SOUTHERN 500

Regan Smith earned himself and Furniture Row Racing the first NASCAR win their history. Smith and his team gambled on worn tires, and that key strategy proved very effective in beating out Carl Edwards.

The second race of the new NASCAR season takes place this afternoon at 2:30 pm in the Phoenix, Arizona suburb of Avondale for the Subway Fresh Fit 500 at Phoenix International Speedway.

Mark Martin will be at the pole, followed by Tony Stewart and Regan Smith.

Martin, who won the April race in 2009 at age 50, became the oldest driver to win a Cup event since 1993 when Morgan Shepherd, then 51, won at Phoenix.

The speedway is a mile in length and the 500-mile race is 375 laps.

The oval was reconfigured before the 2011 November race. More rubber and a second groove were worked into the track, for more side-by-side racing.

Reviewing the first race at Phoenix International Speedway, Jeff Gordon was the winner, in his second race with crew chief Alan Gustafson, ended a 66-race drought as Chevrolets finished in five of the top seven places.

Seating capacity at the desert racetrack is 56,000.

Mark Martin had a solid run at the Daytona 500 finishing 10th in the fiery race.

In a short week, due to NASCAR having to race Monday night due to inclement weather in Daytona, Florida and the teams having to travel Monday night and Tuesday to get across the country to Arizona, Martin kept his hot start by grabbing the pole for today’s Subway Fresh Fit 500 at Avondale, Arizona and the Phoenix International Speedway.

Martin took the lead car with an average speed of 136.81 mph, beating out Regan Smith who had held the top spot for most of the day.

Tony Stewart also passed Smith and will start second with Smith third, Jimmie Johnson and Juan Pablo Montoya starting fourth and fifth respectively.

Indianapolis — The 18th running of the Brickyard 400 presented by BigMachineRecords.com came down to Paul Menard pulling the upset victory over Jeff Gordon and Regan Smith.

But Gordon was happy to finish second because his car ran fantastic all race long.

He finished second due to the fact that he had fallen behind by 12 seconds on a late pit stop but tried to make it up and hoped that Menard would run out of gas, which he didn’t.

Regan Smith, who won his first-ever NASCAR race this year at Darlington, finished third.

Until this season, Smith, driving the #78 Furniture Row Chevrolet had never before finished in the top-10 of NASCAR’s top-tier series. But he now has the Daytona 500, the Southern 600, the Coca Cola 600 and the Brickyard 400 to his credit.
