A Press Release from the Daytona International Speedway says that Budweiser has a multi-year deal to sponsor the pre-season shootout race.
NASCAR officials on Sunday said that the Nationwide Series schedule for 2009 is not going to be including the Mexico race. They are going to put in a USA track in place of it and it looks like that the track at Iowa is going to be the winner.
From an ESPN.com link we get two news items:
Ryan Newman is not going to be in the #20 car next season.
Kyle Petty is not even going to racing this weekend at Pocono as well, but no replacement driver has been named yet.
