CV Products Trackside Notes for October 10-13

CV Products —  October 11, 2014 | Category: Trackside Program | Comment

As the racing season starts to wind down, the Trackside Crew here at CV Products takes to the road, splitting time between the Beast of the Southeast — Charlotte Motor Speedway — and the history-laden Winchester Speedway in Winchester, Indiana.

Here’s what you need to know, along with to find us or watch all of the racing action from home:

2014-Race-for-the-cure-300Drive for the Cure 300

Series: NASCAR Nationwide Series
When: Friday, October 10
Racetrack: Charlotte Motor Speedway — Charlotte, NC
How this one played out: While Chase Elliott inched closer to becoming the first Rookie of the Year candidate to lay claim to the NASCAR Nationwide Series championship, it was Brad Keselowski who stole the show earlier this evening by tracking down his teammate, Ryan Blaney, to win the 2014 installment of the Drive for the Cure 300. Elliott, who finished a respectable eighth, now commands a 42 point lead in the Nationwide Series championship points standings, while Keselowski — who isn’t eligible for points — notched his fourth Nationwide Series win of the year and the 31st such win since he started racing in the series in 2006.

Series: NASCAR Sprint Cup Series
When: Saturday, October 11
Racetrack: Charlotte Motor Speedway — Charlotte, NC
How to watch the race from home: 7pm ET on ABC (racing starts at 7:30pm)
What you need to know: Jimmie Johnson holds the all-time wins record at Charlotte Motor Speedway with seven victories, and can qualify for the Eliminator Round of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup with another win at the 1.5-mile Beast of the Southeast. But that doesn’t assure Johnson of a victory. Look for Sprint Cup series points leader Joey Logano to fair well. That’s because in 11 Charlotte starts, he has claimed three top-five and six top-10 finishes! And then of course there’s Brad Keselowski, who earlier this evening won the Nationwide series race, and who last year took the checkered flag in this very same race.
How to find us: Our Trackside crew will be in the pits (a pit pass is required for entry).

43rd Annual Winchester 400

Series: ARCA CRA Super Series
When: Saturday, October 11 — Sunday, October 12
Racetrack: Winchester Speedway — Winchester, Indiana

What you need to know: Watch for last year’s winner, 18-year-old Cody Coughlin, to repeat again this year. That’s because Coughlin, who just wrapped up a successful rookie season on the ARCA Racing Series, dominated this race last year, leading all 100 laps. The year before that, as a 16-year-old, he finished 7th. West Virginia University Engineering student Travis Braden is looking to claim his second straight CRA Super Series championship on Sunday. He comes into Sunday’s race with a 25-point lead over second place Ross Kenseth. If neither driver earns points on Saturday, then Braden needs to finish 13th or better and he will repeat as Champion.
How to find us: The good folks on the CV Products Trackside team will be in the pits (you must have a pit pass to gain entry).
