Official: NASCAR Banquet Moves To Las Vegas
The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) announced today that Las Vegas formally becomes the “Official Host City of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion’s Week.” NASCAR’s annual NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards Ceremony will be held at the Wynn Las Vegas on Friday, Dec. 4, 2009. The move to Las Vegas provides for greater flexibility for driver and fan events. NASCAR had held the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event in New York City every year since 1981. After exploring several options, NASCAR formed a partnership with Las Vegas Events, making the change of venue a reality. Activities being planned for the days leading up to the Awards Ceremony include the return of the “Victory Lap,” a procession of the top 10 NSCS drivers in their race cars, the NASCAR NMPA Myers Brothers Media Luncheon, the Pit Stop Tour and the NASCAR Street Tour to include stock cars and mobile marketing units placed throughout the city.

Race winners getting older: Just three years ago, the average age (at season’s end) of the 13 drivers who won races was 30.5. This race is only eight races old, but the average age of the winners so far is 35.7. At the moment, the profile of Sprint Cup winners looks a lot like the late 1980s or early ’90s. What was it like back in 1993? The youngest winner was 32 years old. The average was 38.2. Mark Martin, who won five races that year, was 34. Last week he won at age 50. He is the only winner common to both seasons, though then-rookie Jeff Gordon won an unofficial race, a 125-mile qualifier, at Daytona. In recent years, the great trend of the 1990s – younger and younger drivers gradually ousting the generation that preceded them – has reversed. Part of the reason is simply that a generation of great stars – Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth, et al. – has gotten older. But part of it is also that the effect of young drivers – the most notable exception being Kyle Busch – has waned. From 1999, when Stewart arrived to much fanfare, through 2007, when Juan Pablo Montoya was the top rookie, at least one rookie won a race six times in a span of eight years. Before 1999 and Stewart, 11 years had passed without the rookie of the year winning. It didn’t happen last year, and the odds appear long, based on results so far, that either of this year’s rookies, Joey Logano and Scott Speed, will score.(NASCAR This Week)(4-24-2009)
Goodyear Tire Notes – Talladega: Teams in both the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series will run the same tire codes at Talladega this week . . . for Sprint Cup teams, this is the same left-side tire code (D-4138) that they ran at Talladega last season . . . this right-side tire code (D-4224) is new, featuring a mold and construction change compared to last year . . . the change was implemented to align this tire set-up with the one teams ran at the circuit’s other restrictor plate track in Daytona in February . . . . . . for Nationwide teams, this is a completely different combination of left- and right-side tires that they ran at Talladega last season . . . this is the only track at which these tire codes are scheduled to be run in 2009 . . . as on all NASCAR ovals greater than one mile in length, teams are required to run inner liners in all four tire positions at Talladega . . . air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.(Goodyear PR), see pressures and more notes on the Talladega Race Info page – Goodyear Section.(4-24-2009) http://www.jayski.com/next/2009/9tss2009.htm#goodyear

NASCAR officially moves Cup banquet to Vegas; Nationwide and Truck Banquets combined: NASCAR announced that Las Vegas formally becomes the “Official Host City of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion’s Week.” NASCAR’s annual NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards Ceremony will be held at the Wynn Las Vegas on Friday, Dec. 4, 2009. The move to Las Vegas provides for greater flexibility for driver and fan events. The NASCAR Nationwide Series and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events will be combined and held at the Loews Miami Beach on Monday, Nov. 23. The Grand-Am Rolex Series banquet will be held at the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, Fla. on Monday, Oct. 12. NASCAR had held the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event in New York City every year since 1981. After exploring several options, NASCAR formed a partnership with Las Vegas Events, making the change of venue a reality. “I can’t say enough about the warm reception from Las Vegas,” said NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France. “Las Vegas really made it a priority to get the awards ceremony moved there. We were able to come to an agreement on reasonable room blocks, banquet facilities, and approvals to hold fan activities on the famous Las Vegas Strip.” Activities being planned for the days leading up to the Awards Ceremony include the return of the “Victory Lap,” a procession of the top 10 NSCS drivers in their race cars, the NASCAR NMPA Myers Brothers Media Luncheon, the Pit Stop Tour and the NASCAR Street Tour to include stock cars and mobile marketing units placed throughout the city. The awards ceremony for the NASCAR Nationwide Series and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will be consolidated in south Florida. This is designed to provide another great venue for the ceremony as well as help save NNS teams from making an additional trip following the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The top-five finishers from the NNS and NCWTS will be honored at the combined banquet celebration.(NASCAR PR)(4-23-2009)

Trail Motorsport is working on getting its organization on the race track but won’t do so until funding is in place, team managing director Patrick Shelton said Thursday in a statement. The organization, which had hoped to run 19-year-old African-American driver Chase Austin in all of the the Camping World Truck Series races as well as field a full-time Nationwide Series team, hasn’t been on the track since February. Austin drove in two Truck races in a vehicle built and serviced by MRD Motorsports. Johnny Borneman III drove two Nationwide races with his family-owned team under the Trail banner. The team had announced big plans at a January news conference, but after the first few weeks, the Trail organization has had to step back, Shelton said. “”We got behind with funding and encountered several unplanned situations. … We are putting the operation on hold until all of our funding is in place. The team plans to participate this year but has no intention of using other teams’ equipment or personnel to compete.” The team owes MRD Motorsports $66,000 for the race at Auto Club Speedway in California earlier this year, according to a lawsuit in North Carolina Superior Court in Cabarrus County. How many races the team does in the future will depend on funding, Shelton said. “I’d rather do a full, partial, or limited season the right way than one race the wrong way,” Shelton said.(SceneDaily.com)(4-23-2009)
Samsung steps up for Billy Ballew: Samsung has taken Billy Ballew Motorsports up on its offer. After Samsung officials read a story in Wednesday’s editions of The Kansas City Star in which Ballew was making $150,000 worth of sponsorships available on his two NASCAR Camping World Series trucks for just $25,000, they contacted the race team and agreed to a deal for this weekend at Kansas Speedway. Ballew’s series-leading #51 truck, driven by Brian Ickler, and the #15, driven by Shane Sieg, will be sponsored by the Samsung Instinct, which is the company’s touch-tone phone with Sprint. Samsung is the title sponsor of the Samsung 500 NASCAR Nextel Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway.(Kansas City Star)(4-23-2009)

Tom Terrific at Talladega; Hessert Wins Career-First Pole for ARCA RE/MAX 250
TALLADEGA AL (4-23-09) – Tom Hessert, in the Jennifer Belmont-owned Buddy’s Home Furnishings Ford, earned his career-first Menards Pole Award presented by Ansell Thursday afternoon at Talladega Superspeedway.
“It’s awesome,” said Hessert. “It’s definitely the biggest thing I’ve done for my career as far as exposure. It’s huge. Anytime you go to a place like Talladega, it’s special when you can run up front.
“It was absolutely a perfect lap. We made some adjustments between practice and qualifying, and the thing really came to life. I knew it was going to be a good lap, but I didn’t know it was going to be that good.”
Hessert, who circled the 2.66-mile superspeedway in 51.321 seconds for an average speed 186.590 mph, will lead the field to green in Friday’s ARCA RE/MAX 250 LIVE on SPEED at 5:00 PM ET.
“It makes it a lot easier (starting up front). Hopefully we can get the jump on the start and be leading from the get-go.”
It was also the career first superspeedway pole award for Hessert’s team Andy Belmont Racing.
“It’s my first pole in a long time,” said Andy Belmont. “I’m just blown away by the whole thing. Being at Talladega, the enormity of it. I can’t see because the tears keep coming.
“I’m blown away for this kid. I’m telling you, this kid is the next Carl Edwards or whoever. We’re fortunate we got him, and we’re not going to be able to keep him long, I can promise you that. This kid has got it.”
Hessert, in the lone Ford among five Toyotas in the top six positions, nipped Eddie Sharp Racing’s Craig Goess by 14 one-hundredths of a second to earn the top spot.
Goess, in the Greenville Toyota Toyota, will start second in Friday’s race with a speed of 186.539 mph.
Kelly Bires, in the Wolfpack Rentals Toyota, qualified third at 186.463 mph.
Justin Lofton, also in an Eddie Sharp Racing Toyota, qualified fourth in the Lofton Cattle Toyota with a speed of 186.372 mph.
Veteran Mark Thompson, in the Phoenix Air-Venturini Motorsports Toyota, qualified fifth at 186.333.
Just eight one-hundredths of second separated the top five fastest qualifiers.
The 47th ARCA RE/MAX 250 is scheduled to roll off just after 4:00 PM local time Friday afternoon, April 24. The race is LIVE on SPEED at 5:00 PM Eastern. Live coverage also includes live timing & scoring at ARCAracing.com and live streaming audio over the ARCA Racing Network, also at ARCAracing.com.

The Future of NASCAR Media
I was prompted to write this post by a New York Times article sent to me by a colleague the other day. The article, J-Schools Play Catchup, was about the rush by journalism schools around the country to adapt to the changing media landscape. The moral of the story is, if you are a journalist or journalism student right now is a great time to be an entrepreneur because jobs in traditional media are disappearing. I couldn’t help but think how applicable this is to the NASCAR media.
