CV Products —  June 27, 2013 | Category: Trackside Program | Comment

CV_Everywhere-TruckIncluding this weekend’s races, our Trackside Support Services Program has appeared at 92 different races so far this year, and we’ve still got a long way to go before the season comes to an end in November at Homestead-Miami Speedway just prior to Thanksgiving. This weekend we’ll be available at all three NASCAR series races (Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Camping World), as well as on hand for the ARCA race in Winchester, Ind., and the GRAND-AM race at Watkins Glen in upstate NY.

Here’s the detailed lowdown on where to find us this Thursday through Saturday:

Quaker State 400 presented by Advance Auto Parts

quakerstateadvautopartsthumbThe Race to the Chase gets underway for all intents and purposes this weekend at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta. While every point is important in a 26-race regular season, none are more important than points the drivers can secure over the course of the 10 races leading up to the Chase itself. This weekend’s Quaker State 400 marks the first of those races in which drivers and their teams can earn points to qualify them for the Chase. Jimmie Johnson and the #48 team remain in first place in the Sprint Cup Series Standings with 573 points. Twenty-five points behind is Carl Edwards and the #99 team, followed by Clint Bowyer (#15) who sits 45 points back, and Kevin Harvick (#29) who trails by 63 points.

Feed the Children 300

ftc_300_11thumbThis year’s Nationwide Series title is still very much up for grabs. Heading into last week’s road race in Wisconsin, driver Regan Smith was enjoying a comfortable 58-point lead in the series standings over Sam Hornish Jr. This week, as the Nationwide series travels to Kentucky for Friday night’s Feed the Children 300, Smith’s lead has shrunk to just 28 points. Not only did Smith lose ground last weekend but the race’s runner-up — Justin Allgaier — leapfrogged Hornish in the standings to assume second place. Hornish is now third in the Nationwide series points standings, two points behind Allgaier, followed by Austin Dillon and Elliott Sadler.

Herr’s Chase the Taste 200

herrschasethetaste200logoYouth will likely lead the way on Sunday at Winchester Speedway in Indiana. That’s because of three of the drivers entered in the Herr’s Chase the Taste 200 are teenagers. Currently second in the points standings, 18-year-old Mason Mingus is coming off of a Top 10 finish at last week’s SCOTT 160 at Road America. Not far behind are 17-year-old Austin Self, who finished 6th in his ARCA debut in May at Toledo, and 15-year-old Kyle Benjamin — who already has two 2nd place finishes in ARCA races this season.
