NASCAR: Kyle Busch collects 100th win on Saturday in New Hampshire

17 07 2011

Kyle Busch tied the all-time Nationwide Series win record at 49 and notched his 100th career major NASCAR win in Saturday afternoon’s New England 200 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Driving a Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing, the 26-year-old Las Vegas native led the last 33 of the 206 laps in winning the season’s fifth overtime race.

Fellow Cup stars Kevin Harvick and Kasey Kahne finished second and third, then full-time Nationwide drivers Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Aric Almirola, Kenny Wallace and Michael Annett. Pole-winner Brad Keselowski–he tries to run every race in both series–was eighth. Nationwide regulars Steven Wallace and Justin Allgaier rounded out the top 10.

Busch has 14 wins this season: three in Cup, six in Nationwide and five in the Camping World Truck Series. His lifetime totals show 22 in Cup, 49 in Nationwide and 39 in the Truck Series. Only legendary Cup stars Richard Petty (200) and David Pearson (106) reached triple-digits wins in major NASCAR races. The late Dale Earnhardt and Darrell Waltrip each had 97, Martin has 96, Jeff Gordon has 89, Bobby Allison 86, and Cale Yarborough 83.

The Tea Party and NASCAR Team up

1 04 2011

This story hits home for us at Iron Mill Interactive Media, Inc.  Parent of Politisite.  One of our outlets are Nascanner.com which provides NASCAR fans with their favorite drive frequencies so they can monitor the action on their radios.

The Tea party Car driver Chris Lafferty will be driving the  “We the People” truck in the Camping world Truck Series:

TheTeaParty.net Launches Tea Party Racing.Com

Chris Lafferty will drive “We the People’s” truck #89 NCWTS

(Phoenix, AZ)TheTeaParty.net has announced it will be teaming up with Lafferty Motorsports, LLC to sponsor Chris Lafferty in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

The truck, which has already been dubbed “We The People’s” truck, will participate in races across the country during the upcoming two seasons. “The # 89 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and the Tea Party is a natural fit,” said Dustin Stockton media director for TheTeaParty.net. “We will literally drive ‘We The People’ to the front row in racing and government.”

Stockton dismissed criticism about a political organization sponsoring a NASCAR team. “We don’t see ourselves as a partisan organization. Our goal has always been to recruit and educate people to the benefits of limited government, fiscal restraint, and personal responsibility; that has nothing to do with traditional partisan politics.”

TeaPartyRacing.com is a mission-driven organization. The mission components are designed around:

 Representing the people (through sponsorship opportunities),

 Sharing in racing achievements.

 Restoring the importance of understanding the Constitution for America’s future.

The diversity of the TheTeaParty.net, Tea Partiers’ and Race Fans will enable the team to excel both on the racetrack as well as participate in a wide variety of activities and rallies that extend outside of the racetrack.

TheTeaParty.net is seeking separate contributions to help fund the team and has launched the website http://teapartyracing.com/ where supporters can offer their support in increments as small as $5.

The team will kick off the sponsorship over the 4th Of July Holiday at Kentucky Motor Speedway Race on July 7th.

About TheTeaParty.net

Founded in 2009, TheTeaParty.net is one of the largest Tea Party organizations in the country. Since its inception, TheTeaParty.net has recruited thousands of people a week to the Tea Party movement and offers free tools, a national calendar of events, and resources to help grow the movement.

So what is the media saying?

Coming soon to a racetrack near you: a NASCAR racing truck sponsored by the Tea Party.

TheTeaParty.net, which serves as a Web clearinghouse for about 200 small-government groups, is joining forces with NASCAR driver Chris Lafferty on a “We the People” truck.

Vicki Dooling, the media relations coordinator for TheTeaParty.net, said her group signed on with Lafferty’s team in NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series as a way to reach out to a younger crowd and debunk any misperceptions about Tea Party supporters.

“We feel this is going to be a fabulous partnership,” she told USA TODAY.

The truck’s manufacturer, color and design will be decided by people who vote by text, according to Bill Wallace, coach and general manager for the Lafferty Motorsports team. A copy of the Constitution will be emblazoned on the truck’s hood and all the names of people who text in about the truck’s design will have their names on the vehicle, he said.

The truck will debut July 7 in Kentucky and then travel the circuit. Dooling said Tea Party supporters will be on hand to spread the word about upcoming rallies and events for the small-government movement.

Washington Times

Driver Chris Lafferty is teaming up with TheTeaParty.net as a sponsor of the #89 truck in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, which kicks off July 4.

His red Chevy truck will be renamed the “We the People” truck for the next two seasons, carrying the tea party message for two seasons and through the November 2012 election.

Unlike traditional sponsors, the tea party won’t be paying for the privilege. Instead, half the proceeds raised from other sponsors and donations will go to fund TheTeaParty.net, according to a statement by Todd Cefaretti, Freedom Organizer for TheTeaParty.net released to the Hill newspaper.

While the Republican Party still doesn’t have any front runners in the 2012 presidential race, the Tea Party will soon be looking to take the lead in a different type of race. Chris Lafferty, a driver in the Camping World Truck Series, will soon be taking the lanes in the official “‘We the People’s’ truck.” Just one election after the Tea Party proved they were a legitimate force in the political world, ready to take on the big boys, they have now proven to be a legitimate force in the branding world, ready to take on Monster Energy Drink, Longhorn Steakhouse, and GunBroker.com.

TheTeaParty.net says it plans to sponsor a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series racing truck, The Hill’s Christina Wilkie reports.

The site announced it will sponsor the “red No. 89 truck currently driven by Chris Lafferty,” which “will be re-dubbed the ‘We the People’s’ truck, in order to tear up the racetrack for the next two seasons.”

Danica Partrick Catty after Crash at Bristol

20 03 2011
BRISTOL, TN - MARCH 18:  Danica Patrick, drive...

Image by Getty Images via @daylife

Danica Patrick’s spring session in NASCAR ended with a bang. A big one. And she wasn’t happy about it.

With 53 laps to go in Saturday’s Nationwide race at Bristol Motor Speedway, Patrick made contact with Ryan Truex. Patrick’s car spun hard into the wall – first the nose, then the rear, leaving her with a destroyed race car.

After getting out of her car, Patrick waited for the cars to come back around. When they did, Patrick walked onto the track, located Truex and spread her arms apart as if to say, “What gives?”

“It felt like to me – I came out of the corner I was just running down the straight and it felt like he came off the wall,” said Patrick, who was running 17th at the time, two laps down. “I don’t I know if he had a tag-slap off the wall, like he was pushing up and then it snapped on him and he came off. I don’t know. I don’t know if I may be giving him the benefit of the doubt right there.”

Upon first look it didn’t appear as though Truex did anything wrong. It looked liked Patrick got loose, slipped up the track and into Truex’s rear bumper. But the head-on replay does show Truex turning slightly into Patrick’s lane.

“It was my fault. I guess that’s just racing at Bristol,” Truex said. “We were racing there and I just came off the corner, got loose, and as I was saving it just came down the hill and got into her. My fault. I mean, I’m sorry. I didn’t want for that to happen. I don’t know if she thinks I did it on purpose. I guess she’s just mad because she was running good. It was an accident. I apologize.”

Regardless of fault, it was a tough way for Patrick to end this portion of her Nationwide schedule. She’d finished in the top 20 in her first three races, including a career-best fourth-place run two weeks ago at Las Vegas.

She ended up 33rd at Bristol.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Remembers His Father, Fans have moment of Silence

20 02 2011

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — The white No. 3 decals are no bigger than a fist and sit just above and behind the driver’s side window of all the Richard Childress Racing team’s Chevrolets. Crew members wore black baseball caps with the same No. 3 logo and driver Tony Stewart strolled through the Daytona International Speedway garage Friday afternoon clutching one of the prized caps himself.

Friday marked exactly 10 years since the driver of the Richard Childress Racing No. 3, seven-time NASCAR champion Dale Earnhardt, was killed in Turn 4 of this track after crashing on the last lap of the Daytona 500. The speedway will remember the NASCAR icon with a moment of silence and fans will hold up three fingers on the third lap of Sunday’s Daytona 500.

But for such an overwhelming event, it has been a subdued, subtle and suiting anniversary.

For the past week, Earnhardt’s competitors, teammates and friends have shared emotional stories about that fateful Sunday afternoon. But the one person you won’t see participate in any contrived memorial this weekend is Earnhardt’s son, Dale Jr. No hat, no decal. None necessary.

“I’d personally rather just watch it and stand on the sidelines,” Earnhardt said of the various tributes and memorials planned for the weekend.

“It’s more fun for me hearing how other people reflect, hearing other people’s stories. I know how I feel in my heart and I don’t feel a real need to discuss that a lot.

“I want to do what’s right and honor him, but I don’t need to do it in front of a bunch of people. I feel like he carries his own weight and he doesn’t need me being a part of the celebration or whatever you want to call it. I don’t want to take away from it in any way.”
