It’s racing under the lights Saturday night for this year’s Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway– Carl Edwards and Jeff Gordon are feeling good about the season, Jimmie Johnson takes a Victory Lap at the White House, Kentucky feeds its fans at the track and a major sponsor is stepping away from NASCAR.

FOX News Radio’s Marghiee Teshineh reports:

This week, the Sprint Cup is in Kentucky– and Carl Edwards says having two wins now, means a lot because:

Edwards: “To be locked into the Chase is huge. Now we can focus really hard on our program for the final ten races.

Jeff Gordon says he expects Kentucky will be another good week of racing for him because of the:

Gordon: “Great cars that I’ve had going in week in and week out. And have cars that are capable of either winning or running up front.”

President Obama honored Jimmie Johnson and the #48 team at the White House for their sixth Cup title– calling him the Michael Jordan of racing and that:

President Obama: “He’s the best there ever was.”

If you are grabbing a snack at this week’s race at Kentucky, the food will be locally grown according the State Agriculture Commissioner.

And– Home Depot, a primary sponsor at Joe Gibbs Racing since 1999, with drivers Tony Stewart, Joey Logano and Matt Kensethannounced they are ending its NASCAR sponsorship after this season.
