Joey Logano, More Mike Skinner, and other news....

Motorsports Soapbox says that Joey Logano is going to make his Sprint Cup Debut this year at Richmond.  He will run six to seven races with Gatorade as the primary sponsor.

Reed Sorenson is talking with Chip Ganassi for a contract extension.

Mike Skinner is now going to be in the #00 Michael Waltrip Racing car for three weeks in order to help prove performance of the car.

If you do not know by now M&M'S has a contest where they are looking for the most colorful NASCAR Fan.  Still a lot of time enter.

From a DEI press release Bobby Hutchens has been now named the VP of competition.

The ratings for the Watkins Glen Race came in at 3.6 which is down from the 4.1 rating the race got last year.

NASCAR Now Note:

Dale Jarrett made a great point which I agree with on the Watkins Glen accident.  He said that NASCAR has to look at widening the track area and possibly putting up a safer barrier where the accident occurred that had a 40 minute plus rain delay.
