Contest, Joey Logano, and other news...

NASCAR has come out today to make it official in making double file restarts official

Forbes.com is out with a top ten list of themost valuable NASCAR teams with Rick Hendrick out in the lead.

James Hylton at age 74 is going to attempt to make the Pocoo race.  If he gets in it will be his 700th start.

MacDonald Motorsports is going to have Bobby Hamilton Jr. as the driver for the Nationwide Series race at Nashville.

Joey Logano is also going to attempt the Bennett Lane Winery 200 race at Sonoma on June 20. The race is a Camping World West Series race run a day before the Sprint Cup race.

Got a PR here for a contest you may want to enter from the Old Spice Company:

The first set of "Swaggerize Your Wallet" challenges include:

- Make a Cake in the Shape of the Swagger Logo: Submit a video of a Swagger logo-shaped cake (the bigger, the better) being eaten by one or more people. No longer than five minutes. Judges will reward their favorite entry with $500.

- Throw Swagger Product Like a Fastball: Submit a video of someone throwing one of the Old Spice Swagger family of products at least 65 mph as clocked by a radar gun. The faster, the better. No longer than three minutes. Judges will reward their favorite entry with $1,500.

- Hold a Swagger Sign at a Televised Game: Submit a personal photo of a sports fan who incorporates the words "Old Spice Swagger" into a homemade sign held at a televised sporting event. Event must be specified. Judges will reward their favorite entry with $2,500.

- Tony Stewart Look-alike Contest: Since Old Spice is the official deodorant of NASCAR and sponsor of Stewart's No. 14 car, why not reward someone for looking like him? Submit a personal photo of a Tony Stewart look-alike, male or female, holding one of the Old Spice Swagger family of products. Judges will reward their favorite entry with $500.

Consumers will be able to begin submitting entries to Old Spice on Monday, June 15, with the deadline for the first set of challenge entries set for Sunday, June 28.
