Dancia Patrick Crash on Lap 68 in Nationwide Series

14 02 2010

Danica Patrick not so smooth first time out

Danica Patrick’s first race on the Nationwide Series didn’t go quite as she had hoped. Just the same the 35th place finish as a rookie will give her a lot to walk away learning.

Patrick was taken out of the race in a lap 68 in a large pile-up, resulting in a “did not finish” final standing for her.

The first thing that Patrick learned was that she might be getting a lot of media attention but that does not stop her from being a part of a big one. The big one being the crash she was a part of in the Nationwide Series today in Daytona.

The second thing that she has to continue to work on is the difference between NASCAR and Indy-car language. Patrick repeatedly communicates using her Indy-car lingo. While her team can adapt and she can clarify as to how the car is performing. Still, anyone in NASCAR will tell you that communication is key between a driver and their pit crew, so Patrick will have to work on this some.

Danica Patrick NASCAR Debut at Daytona Speedway Saturday

9 02 2010

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — After a top-10 taste of stock car racing over the weekend, Danica Patrick has decided to accelerate her learning curve and will enter Saturday’s NASCAR Nationwide Series season-opener at Daytona International Speedway.

Danica Patrick makes the More to NASCAR

Patrick announced her decision Monday, two days after finishing sixth at Daytona in an 80-lap race in the ARCA Series, which is an entry-level, training series for many drivers. The Nationwide Series is NASCAR’s version of Triple-A baseball and a significant step up.

“Racing in the Nationwide Series race was my goal during this entire two-month preparation process,” Patrick said, “but we wanted to make sure it was the right thing to do.

“The ARCA race was a blast and I’m not ready for my first Daytona Speedweeks to end just yet. I want more racing.”

Auto Racing has become the fastest growing spectator sport in the United States.  NASCAR fans enjoy the ability to hear their favorite drivers and crew directly via hand held scanners.  The frequency range is between 450-460 Mhz. A few drivers have recently changed to 800-900mhz frequencies

Nascanner decided to provide frequency updates on NowPublic free.   Here are our first update.

Here is a NASCAR scanner frequency Primer from two sources.

 Using a Scanner at a NASCAR Race

<!– –>

Once you’ve experienced a race with a scanner, you can’t imagine watching one without the headphones on your ears.  You are able to listen to communication among the driver, his pit crew and spotter, as well as radio broadcasts and track announcements, which are usually otherwise inaudible due to the race noise.

Using a scanner helps you discover the race behind the race, hearing differing pit strategies, learning how the cars are handling and discovering who is mad at whom.  Basically, you’ll hear what these guys really want to say, but can’t in front of a television camera.

When I started scanning races, I used a cheap 200-channel scanner with a frequency range reaching 800Mhz, and two sets of inexpensive headphones with a splitter.  I bought it on sale in 1997, and the whole set-up cost me around $200. It worked, but I have since learned that there are big differences with scanners, headsets and even antenna’s. In short, you can get by with less expensive set-ups, but spending a few extra dollars will save some frustration with bleed-over and lost reception at the track.

If you don’t want to buy a scanner, you can rent them at the track. The cost to rent one for the weekend is $55-60, so you can do the math to see how quickly you can own one at those prices. Plus, I’ve seen the track-side rental places run out of scanners, so you’re definitely not guaranteed to get one.

Using a Scanner at a NASCAR Race

NASCAR scanner frequency information from Fact Expert

<!– –>

What would it be like to be a part of the thrill and excitement that goes on among the crew of NASCAR driver during a heated race? Those that know the NASCAR frequencies that each individual driver transmits on during the race can say that they’ve experienced it all first hand. Drivers run into all kinds of problems during races and they have a lot of triumphs too. It’s all usually captured through the transmissions they send to their crew as they tear around the track and for those in the know, they can be a part of it all as well. However it should be said that the activity of scanning frequencies can be considered illegal in some cases so it’s important to know what’s going to get you in very big trouble and what areas considered ok to an extent.

First of all, not all frequencies are the same from race to race and track to track. There are groups that keep up with NASCAR frequencies and if you’re planning on making it a part of your regular trips to the races, you may want to join one. That’s not to say that there aren’t places online that you can find these out, but it’s nice to belong to a community of fellow enthusiasts that may be willing to share a lot of information and tips that you can’t always find anywhere else. If frequencies have been changed for any reason, you may find out from a friend in a group or forum before you head out to the track.

NASCAR Frequencies Can Change From Race To Race

Each of the drivers in a race has several NASCAR frequencies to broadcast on. Even the governing body of NASCAR itself can’t determine which frequencies will be usable at all times. There are usually about four available frequencies for a driver. A primary and secondary as well as two alternates. Thankfully there are some websites that list all of these for scanner enthusiasts to make use of. But it’s not just for a single area of NASCAR. In some cases, the frequencies for all of the series including the NationWide, Sprint Cup and even CART racing.

NASCAR Richard Petty’s Wife Diagnosed With Cancerous Brain Tumor

5 02 2010
<!– –>

Lynda Petty, wife of all-time leading NASCAR race winner Richard Petty, has been diagnosed with a Central Nervous System lymphoma, which is a type of cancerous brain tumor.

A statement released Thursday by Richard Petty Motorsports said that Lynda will be treated at the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C., which is about 65 miles east of the Petty home in Level Cross, N.C.

“We are thankful for the medical team at Duke. My wife Lynda is in good hands,” Richard Petty said. “The doctors and our family are very optimistic that the treatment for this cancer will be successful.”

Lynda had been having problems with her eyesight, and the Pettys issued a statement on Jan. 22 saying that Lynda would undergo a medical procedure “to determine the cause of an ongoing medical condition.” CNS Lymphoma is generally treated with radiotherapy or chemotherapy or both.

Richard plans to be at the track for Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway, but it will be a day-to-day thing.
