It’s All-Star Race weekend at Charlotte with drivers in the hunt for up to $2 million in prize money.
Martin Truex Jr. is hoping to snag one of three slots left open in the 22-car race by coming in first or second in the pre-race Sprint Showdown because:
(Truex) “The All-Star Race is one of the funnest events of the year and to not be a part of it is pretty miserable.”
The last slot is decided by the fans. Truex, who won the fan vote in 2005, says with competition from newcomers like Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Danica Patrick:
(Truex) “My odds are not very good with Danica being in there.”
Michael Waltrip Racing fires crew member Lee Dodson, after he failed a random drug test. Dodson had joined Waltrip Racing this year and had been working on the car of Clint Bowyer.
And North Carolina police have a warrant for the arrest of driver Mike Harmon. Wanted in connection with the theft of a hauler worth over a quarter million dollars from driver and owner Jennifer Jo Cobb.
