2010 Nascar Schedule
November 14, 2010 by staff
2010 Nascar Schedule, With 2 races remaining in NASCAR Nationwide Series 2010 some teams and drivers were seeking a solution for 2011. Enter the Wypall 200 at Phoenix International Raceway and Brad Keselowski Penske / Discount Tire # 22 championship team already the driver is enclosed. The only other battle is between the top team # 22 and # 18 Joe Gibbs Racing teams in the league owners. Gibbs was in the lead entering the race.
In the fall of the green flag, and even before, it was obvious that Carl Edwards wanted this win bad. He struggled early in the race with Joey Logano, who led 23 laps early in the race. Up front, for the first 100 laps it was Edwards, Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Justin Allgaier and Logano.
With 50 laps remaining in the race struggling with the top 5 were Edwards, Bush, Harvick, Keselowski and Logano. With 30 laps to go, Bush was forced to pit for a tire change back off, no warning was released and he went down a lap to the leaders. Although he fought hard to regain ground and made its way to the first cart but no amount of delay, due diligence has not been forthcoming. Kyle has managed to cross the head to finish on the lead lap, but in 16th place, last car on the lead lap, the championship hopes of the owners for Joe Gibbs Racing is more than a memory.
In the closing laps before he was on Edwards with a commanding 4.5 second led over second place Kevin Harvick. Carl came home the winner once more, then on the line by Harvick, Logano, Keselowski and Sorenson in fifth. To complete the top 10 were Almirola, Stenhouse Jr., Allgaier, Braun, and Steven Wallace 10th.
Trevor Bayne, who had to qualify on speed in the RTS unsponsored # 17 cars started 9 and remained in the top 15 most of the day, His intention is to make turns it wishes to maintain his championship point’s position after being released by Diamond-Waltrip Racing. Racing smart, no real battle views, Bayne No. 17 home in 14th place, giving Roush Fenway Racing five cars in the top 15 for the day.
The fight at the other end of the spectrum included a few teams with their eyes on the first 30 points of the position. This is the elusive number to get your car locked in the first five races of 2011. The teams in the battle 70 Number of ML Motorsports and driver Shelby Howard and Mark Green. Howard only works a schedule of 22 races, but a partnership agreement between ML Motorsports Jay Robinson Racing and the car provides 70 with more equipment and a second driver David Green. It’s a strange situation since Howard replaced Green as the primary driver for ML after 4 races in 2009. The 70 from PIR 30 101 points ahead of Team 81. Mark Smith on 35 and 23 Robert Richardson was only 41 points ahead on 70.
The tension that coveted 30 spot heated laps 20 of race as Mark Green and the # 70 car headed for the garage with a “blown up” the transmission and engine. The people back at ML Motorsports obtained a sigh of relief when the car # 81 finished 26th in the # 70 keeping locked in entering the final race at Homestead.
For stars Indycar, Danica Patrick was another day that more media coverage exaggerated a little about racing, just beat and beat, and of course the obligatory moans. The final result for Danica is in line with his previous 10 races, finishing seven laps to 32nd place.
