Is Second Place Already the First Loser in the Truck, Nationwide Series?

Is Second Place Already the First Loser in the Truck, Nationwide Series?

Ironically (or perhaps not surprisingly), it’s the two NASCAR national touring series that don’t have a Chase system that are currently enjoying tight races atop the standings as the 2012 season hits the summer stretch. The Nationwide ranks is playing host to Sadler vs. Stenouse Redux, featuring Austin Dillon, while the Truck ranks see four regulars all within nine markers of each other heading into Iowa. The commonalities between the two are numerous. Richard Childress Racing has a presence in both. Both feature a Dillon brother. And both now have a second-place driver facing the first major uncertainties of their respective seasons. When Austin Dillon takes to the track this Saturday at Loudon, it will be without crew chief Danny Stockman, who has been suspended after his No. 3 team was penalized for rules violations each of the last two race weekends. And when Justin Lofton leaves Iowa, the No. 6 team faces an uncertain sponsorship situation, following the announcement this week that backer CollegeComplete.com was departing. Read More »

Questions Still Loom for Townley, RAB Racing Following Martinsville

Questions Still Loom for Townley, RAB Racing Following Martinsville

It was one of the more uneventful Martinsville races in recent memory, and the same could be said for the return of John Wes Townley. Making his first Truck Series start since 2008, and his first in any level of NASCAR racing since the summer of 2010, the No. 09 returned in one piece, two laps off the pace in 23rd. And it was what it was. It was a calm, collected performance for both driver and team, but it was also a backmarker, 23rd-place finish, a result that did get aid from attrition. It was about as anti-climatic a conclusion to Townley’s return to NASCAR as could play out. But leaving Martinsville, the future of both driver and RAB Racing is no clearer after the events of Saturday. Read More »

Building, Rebuilding: Justin Marks, Turn One Racing Make Strides at Dover

As the Camping World Truck Series took to the track for qualifying Friday morning in Dover, the session progressed much as to be expected. The pole changed hands until Kyle Busch took the track and laid down a blistering fast lap. That lap stood until Kevin Harvick knocked it down. But late in the session, even Happy Harvick got knocked from the top spot from none other...than Justin Marks? Read More »

Bodine Holds Off Peters to Tame the Lady in Black

Timothy Peters was on the pole and led a bunch of laps early, but Todd Bodine used his extensive experience at Darlington to come on late in the race and ended up visiting Victory Lane again at the Track Too Tough to Tame. Bodine had previously won at Darlington in the Nationwide series and now adds a Truck series victory to his resume. Bodine wins for the second week in a row, third time in 2010 and now has a 231 point lead over second place Aric Almirola. While that seems like a large deficit, it is not unprecedented for a champion to overcome such a hole. Rick Crawford lost the championship after leading by 227 points back in 2002 to Mike Bliss.
