NASCAR Heading to New England

NASCAR goes to New England for Sunday’s running of the New Hampshire 301 at Loudon’s New Hampshire Motor Speedway, and a judge rules on the side of NASCAR and Pocono Raceway in a lawsuit.


With just eight races until the field is set for the Chase, Ryan Newman, who hasn’t won a race this season, says his third place finish last week at Kentucky, has his team well positioned this weekend at Loudon. 

(Ryan Newman) Leading into this stretch of races, especially where we are in the Chase, to have good points even though it wasn’t a win, it’s a small victory in itself.

Carl Edwards has a win this year and is in the top five in points, but he knows now is not the time to relax. 

(Carl Edwards) Our Toyota has been really fast and we just gotta keep the throttle down and keep moving forward. It’s easy to get bogged down in this summer stretch for the crew guys and everyone so you have to keep pushing.

And in Pennsylvania this week, NASCAR and Pocono Raceway won a lawsuit brought against them by the widow of a fan killed and other fans who got hurt in lightning strikes during a weather delay at a Cup race in August of 2012.

And Kyle Busch wins this year’s ESPY Award for Best Driver.
