The Pit Stop


September 17, 2009 10:09 PM

Various News notes and some commentray for September 17.

Darlington Raceway has come out with the 2010 Southern 500 Logo.

Rain-X is going to be the sponsor this weekend for Martin Truex Jr. and his #1 car.

On NASCAR Now show today Jamie McMurray says that he has not signed on for a team yet next year.

Scenedaily.com is out with Nationwide Series drivers pondering weather the Sprint Cup chase format should be used in the Nationwide Series.

My quick comment on this:

I say NO to that idea.  Even though you have 14 cars that have gone the full season so far which is a no-no in my book, you really have only three drivers (Brad Keselowksi, Carl Edwards, and Kyle Busch) that are consistent top five each week.  That to me is the worst thing.  You can go 10 deep in Sprint Cup, you can't do that in the Nationwide Series.
