As immature as that is, I think of it everytime we go to Dover. I believe we will FINALLY get some beautiful weather for this race! The Monster Mile has its schedule and you can look at it here. National Recording Artist Sarah Darling will sing the National Anthem and I am still looking for the Grand Marshall announcement...Autism Awareness will be represented on the car of Bobby Labonte. Dover has a new pit road which should be exciting! We love the short tracks so this should be a great weekend for all!
Not only will it give you the opportunity to help provide bullet-and-knife-resistant vests for K9 officers throughout the United States, but also the chance to win a potential cash prize valued at twenty-five percent (25%) of the total monies raised!
With the help of your $10 donation today, www.vest4k9.com, in collaboration with NASCAR drivers Tony Stewart and Greg Biffle, will raise funds to vest 192 K9 officers working in 32 states. And 25 percent of all cash raised will be raffled off to one lucky donor. So, the more money donated, the more you could win!
In July of 2008, the Tony Stewart Foundation vested all 30 Indiana State Police dogs, plus 10 additional dogs in 3 other states. Stewart’s philanthropic efforts called much attention toward Vest ‘N P.D.P.’s president and founder Susie Jean’s one-person shop and suggested a need for a national effort to raise funds to help these K9 officers. So far, 350 dogs in 38 states have been provided a custom-fit vest to protect them in the line of duty.
These custom-made bullet-and-knife-resistant vests are made from the same Kevlar material used in human officer’s vests and are personally embroidered for each K9 officer. Vests range from $1,200 to $1,500 per vest, which, according to Susie Jean, is “A small price to pay for our police dogs that protect their human partner as well as our communities.” Click on, “Buy Tickets” to Invest ‘n Vests! Each $10 donation enters you to win the cash prize. Don’t delay! Raffle ends June 14th!

So it didn't come as a surprise when Hendrick Motorsports announced that Lance McGrew will be taking over as Dale Earnhardt Jr's crew chief as of June 7th at Pocono. Team Manager, Brian Whitesell will interim the position at this weekends race in Dover. Tony Eury Jr. will move from the crew chief position into a key role with Hendrick Motorsports' research and development group.
"Our performance hasn't been where it should be," said Rick Hendrick. "It's impossible to pin that on any one factor, but a change is the right decision at this point. We have a plan in place, and we're going to move forward with it."
The performance of the 88 team has been: one victory, one pole position, 19 top-10 finishes and 11 top-fives within 48 races.
So you may find yourself asking, Who is Lance McGrew? As a Crew Chief, Lance won the 2003 NASCAR Nationwide Series championship with Brian Vickers. He has also earned victories in all three of NASCAR's major touring series: Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Camping World Truck. He won races with drivers Brian Vickers, Jeff Gordon, Ricky Hendrick, Kyle Busch, Mark Martin and Tony Stewart.
I wonder if Dale Earnhardt Jr. will threaten to hit Lance McGrew with a hammer?

I finally feel like I watched a real Nationwide race! For the longest time, this race looked like a paid Sprint Cup practice. I like to look at these Nationwide races as JV, College, AA...what have you but its gets frustrating when you really have to stop and double check that this isn't a Sprint Cup race based on who is running. It would be nice if we could go back to giving some up and comers a chance to really excel and gain some notoriety for future sponsorship opportunities. I know that I have ranted on this before, and most of you agreed with me....but even the old timers in the Sprint series have limits to how much they can run. How about giving the same courtesy to the Nationwide series to let the future of the sport shine without sharing the spotlight with the big names? Getting off my soap box the race results can be found here, thanks to NASCAR.com.
Congratulations to Mike Bliss who wins his second Nationwide race (both wins were in Charlotte) after the race was called due to rain.
