Can Gordon win at Homestead? That seems to be the question these days….. with his win at Texas last week he added another notch to his belt leaving only Homestead -Miami Speedway as the only tack where he don’t have a win. Will this year be the year that the 1005 palm trees get to see the 24 go tovictory lane? (yeah there are 1005 palm trees there 15 different kinds of them) Will the track that opened in 1995 be the last track for Gordon to checkoff his list? ESPN provided us with a list of driver’s who have covered these tracks pretty good, Gordon stands to be the first to win at every track that NASCAR runs on today. But can he do it? Well he has had 14 years to get it done and he hasn’t yet but with the streak he is on this year I think it will happen, but willit happen this year? That remains to be seen. Driver — Wins — Tracks won at Richard Petty — 200 — 51 of 84 David Pearson — 105 — 38 of 65 Bobby Allison — 84 — 28 of 47 Darrell Waltrip — 84 — 16 of 26 Cale Yarborough — 83 — 18 of 46 Jeff Gordon — 82 — 23 of 24 One thing I do find interesting is the number of tracks that the top 5 raced on, look at Petty he ran on 84 tracks! NASCAR thinks it has problems with date for track now…..Pearson ran on 65 tracks But those days of NASCAR are long gone, a different era of racing then, but not to take anything away from Gordon he has done pretty good on the 24 tracks he has won on… Michael Waltrip Racing has signed the 17-year-old brother of NASCAR Sprint Cup regular Martin Truex Jr. as a development driver. Could we have another brother team coming soon? Truex started racing four years ago in a Bandolero at Wall Township Speedway in New Jersey. He graduated to Legends and won a speedway championship at the track in 2007. Last season, Truex raced a family owned Late Model at Motor Mile Speedway in Radford, Va. Seems he spent a lot of time gathering up his parts last year no wins…. and a few mad drivers…. but with the name and a big brother as a cup regular it seems easy to get noticed… Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will make his NASCAR Nationwide Series debut Saturday in the Pepsi 300 at Nashville Speedway. A former sprint car standout he will be driving for Roush/Fenway this weekend. Stenhouse finished 4th in the ARCA series last season. Seems that NASCAR is really pushing the media to spout off about the “Testing Ban” everywhere ou look they are talking about it, well testing budgets have not changed not a bit, just the names on the checks the teams write to the tracks has, where it used to be tracks sanctioned by NASCAR now it is tracks that are NOT sanctioned by NASCAR. Well I guess that is good for the other track owners, since NASCAR wants north of $30,000.00 just to put the NASCAR banner up and then they want a % of the gate. So who does the “testing ban” really hurt? You guessed it!!NASCAR track owners! them and the little guy teams who were starting to get a grip on the new “cot” but now they cant test like the big boys … it only serves to help the teams with 7 post shaker rigs and all the testing results from the past year so you will see no tears from the top of this box……. well C-ya at the races….. looks like Nashville for the Nationwide race is where its at this weekend,, don’t forget to watch Justin Algaier.. “the kid with the skills to pay the bills” the dr.
