Kahne Tops In Second Practice

Scott Riggs might have stolen his teammate's thunder with his pole winning run, but Kahne retook his spot atop the field by posting the fastest lap at 183.586 mph in the second Nextel Cup Series practice session. Kyle Busch was second fastest, followed by Robby Gordon, Clint Bowyer, and Jimmie Johnson to round out the top five. Read More »

Riggs Nips Teammate Kahne for Bud Pole

Scott Riggs was probably the only guy Kasey Kahne worried about when it came to challengers for the Bud Pole Thursday night. It turns out he was right to be concerned. Kahne was sitting comfortably at the head of the field for most of the qualifying session until his Ray Evernham Racing teammate came out late in the going and blew his fast lap right off the board.

Kahne Stakes Out Top Spot in Busch Series Too

Kasey Kahne is really good on tracks configured like Lowe's Motor Speedway and he drove that point home by posting the fastest time in the opening Busch Series practice session to match his performance on the Cup side of the fence. Kahne set fast time with a lap of 184.055 mph in the No. 9 Wisk Dodge and was the only driver to break the 184 mph mark. Jimmie Johnson posted the second fastest lap at 183.511 mph while Jeff Burton, Dave Blaney, and Regan Smith rounded out the top five fastest. Smith's fifth place time in the No. 35 McDonald's Ford is best among Busch Series regulars so far. Read More »

Evernham Teams Invade Johnson’s House

The first practice session for Nextel Cup Series teams has just ended and the three teams of Ray Evernham have planted themselves firmly at the top of the speed charts. Kasey Kahne was fastest in the No. 9 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge with a speed of 187.279 mph on a track where many expected he would do well and perhaps have a shot to pull back into Chase competition. Teammate Scott Riggs posted the second fastest speed at 187.266 mph. They were the only two drivers over 187 mph. Kurt Busch was the only driver to break the Evernham stranglehold on the top spots, slotting in to third while Elliott Sadler in the third Evernham Dodge was fourth fastest and Mark Martin rounded out the top five.

Frontstretch Breakdown : Yellow Transportation 300

*In A Nutshell:* It was business as usual for Kevin Harvick Saturday afternoon; he scored his seventh Busch Series win of the season at Kansas Speedway, and once again, he found his way to Victory Lane even without the fastest car. Matt Kenseth dominated the day, but a slow pit stop under caution on lap 165 cost him the top spot, losing him an advantage he could never get back. Read More »

It’s Not Easy Being the New Kid

News came down this week that Bobby Labonte would be taking over driving duties for Kevin Harvick, Inc.'s No. 77 Dollar General Chevrolet for the remaining companion events of the 2006 Busch Series season. This means that rookie driver Burney Lamar will have only one more run in the car when the Busch Series runs a stand alone event at Memphis. The reason given for the change involves the performance of the car or rather the lack thereof. It seems the team has not seen the progress or improvement they were hoping for and they are putting a veteran behind the wheel to evaluate the program in an effort to see where they might need to make improvements for next season. Although he hasn't technically been completely relieved of his driving duties, Lamar is basically the next rookie being sidelined. Read More »
