Awesome.
Checking out the entry list, looks like Larson will be pulling double duty this weekend. Bill's boy and high-school hero Erik Jones are back for more.
Also, Joey Logano is running Keslowski's ride. I expect he's there to recoup some of the lunch-money that will be stolen from him come Saturday.

I also see Dale Jr amongst the swarm of Cup regulars polluting the Nationwide race. :evil:

Nice little link if you're looking for more info... Texas and Rockingham Viewer's Guide

Rocking Ham should be a fun little race. Trucks are turning out really entertaining this year. Lots of promising rook-ees.

I always thought Stenhouse was a bit chubby, that backflip was quite impressive.

Relax fellas.

How about we all enjoy some nice Smokin’ Hubcaps and wash those down with some Bacon Cotton Candy Martinis?

Sound good?

Of course it doesn't.

The thread has been tidied up and posts removed and edited. This forum is for discussing motorsport, you want to discuss the politics of the gun debate there are numerous threads in Paddock Club.

Though try telling that to the sponsors.

Joe Nemechek/87 has picked up http://www.atigunstocks.com/1-home for this weekend and Clint Bowyer/15 is promoting Gander Mountain's gun safety efforts.

There's a pic around of him doing a handstand on a pair of trophies. There's no doubt he's very athletic.

Cousin Carl will be back in the ESPN booth for tonight's Nationwide race. I think he's pretty good at it, I enjoy his insights and he seems comfortable up there.

And Travis Pastrana will be the in-race reporter. Should be enjoyable, if his exuberant radio chatter at Daytona is anything to go by.

I'm not really sure what kind of press Nascar is going to get from this sponsor. If anything it's going to be like this thread and everyones going to argue random stuff about it.

But NASCAR spokesman David Higdon released a statement that indicated the timing of a sponsorship and the perception of NASCAR will be used to determine whether to approve race sponsorships in the future.

"The NRA's sponsorship of the event at Texas Motor Speedway fit within existing parameters that NASCAR affords tracks in securing partnerships," the NASCAR statement said.

"However, this situation has made it clear that we need to take a closer look at our approval process moving forward, as current circumstances need to be factored in when making decisions."

While there could be a perception that NASCAR is endorsing the NRA's political platform, NASCAR said that is not the case.

"NASCAR has no official position on the gun rights debate," the NASCAR statement said. "Our fans, racing teams and industry partners come from all walks of life and thus have varying points of views and opinions.

"As a sport, we are in the business of bringing people together for entertainment, not political debate."


Ahh, NASCAR is 'reviewing' something. Bless them.

And I agree, NASCAR has *never* been political. Apart from the time Romney rained out two races.

btw JP won't be in the thread probably for the race due to a previous engagement with Kyle Busch's lawyers.

Trucks are at Rockingham, NC, which makes them the odd man out. Both the Cup and Nationwide are in Texas during nights with the next days being normally available for people to travel home. NASCAR admin might not be the most astute bunch but they do have enough sense to not compete against itself.

Well wherever he is, he's definitely thinking about NASCAR. Kevin Harvick just blew an engine in practice and will start from the back.

Thanks, Jp!

Nice practice session for RPM there, the guys looked fast. Ambrose 1st Almirola 3rd.
Someone must have told JPM he'd be driving for Menard or a shuttle at Orlando Disneyworld next year. He was sixth fastest.

According to his twitter he is really sick, and has had to take a couple trips to the infield care center to get some fluids pumped into him. Then he sets the pole!

Yeah he sounded rather lousy talking to ESPN after his run, hopefully he has time to head over to the infield care center again before the race. I'm already dreading the predictable 'the best place for a sick driver is in the cockpit' comments throughout the entire race.

See Watkins? Even Kurt doesn't like Kyle.
Kyle breaks the track record and pushes Brother Kurt off the top spot after his amazing run in the Furniture Row #78.
RPM look solid with Aric 3rd and Ambrose 4th.

Danica 41st.
