Watkins Glen International hosts this Sunday's race, the Cheez-It 355 at the Glen. Watkins Glen's president weighs in on the merits of road course racing. Nelson Piquet Junior returns to NASCAR. The National Guard says goodbye to NASCAR and Joe Gibbs Racing lets NASCAR's penalties stand.
FOX News Radio's Marghiee Teshineh has this week's "FOX in the Fast Lane:"
NASCAR has two road courses on its regular schedule and this week the Sprint Cup is at Watkins Glen. I asked The Glen's track president Michael Printup what makes these tracks unique.
(Printup) There's nothing like a road course. Sonoma is a slower, more technical road course and Watkins Glen is one of the fastest road courses in the country.
In preparing for this weekend's race Dale Earnhardt Junior said though he didn't do any pre-race testing at the Glen...
(Earnhardt Junior) We can take what we learned from everybody that tested and what we learned at Sonoma and put a good car on the track that's competitive at the Glen.
The National Guard has announced it plans to end its NASCAR and IndyCar sponsorship deals. The Guard is the current sponsor of Dale Earnhardt Junior's car.
Nelson Piquet Junior returns to NASCAR making his first Cup series appearance this weekend at Watkins Glen.
And Joe Gibbs Racing says they will not appeal the penalties issued to Denny Hamlin's car after failing a post race inspection at Indy.
