NASCAR Cup Race Preview – Pure Michigan 400

WBKR NASCAR Preview: Pure Michigan 400

After a weekend of both left and right turns, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will make their 2nd visit of the season at Michigan International Speedway, the sight of this weekend’s event. NASCAR’s Most Popular Driver, Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be trying to defend his title at Michigan after going to victory lane in the June event.

Last week’s winner, Marcos Ambrose set a qualifying record at the 2-mile oval in June with a speed of over 203 MPH. Since then, drivers and teams have returned to the track for a Goodyear tire test where NASCAR tested and developed a new tire for this weekend’s event. Speeds are expected to be slower this weekend due to the tire compound change and wear on the track’s repaved asphalt. Can he make it two in a row? Marcus told Fox News, “We really got a good shot at it there. We have to really concentrate on car speed”.

WBKR NASCAR Preview – Finger Lakes 355

My NASCAR-covering buddy, Blake Smith is here and has his analysis of this week's NASCAR Cup Series race. With a tiny bit of help from the Moonster.

After an exciting and shortened Pennsylvania 400, Jeff Gordon found himself in victory lane for the first time in 2012. Gordon, who has had his share of bad luck and bad finishes this season finds himself  in the  second and final wild card position headed into this weekend’s race at Watkins Glen. Although there are still four races before the Chase for the Championship cut off, Gordon seems to be surging at the right time. Gordon, who has 9 road course victories, is Blake’s pick for victory lane on Sunday.

WBKR NASCAR Preview: Pennsylvania 400 by Blake Smith and Moon Mullins

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will make its 2nd trip of the season to the “Tricky Triangle” at Pocono in Long Pond, Pennsylvania for this weekend’s Pennsylvania 400. Joey Logano visited victory lane back in June after a late race battle with veteran, Mark Martin. This will also mark the 2nd trip since it was repaved during the off season.

Drivers and teams have had a busy week following Sunday’s race at the Brickyard. 28 drivers and teams visited the Michigan Speedway for a tire test on Monday. Top speeds at the end of the straight-aways topped 210 MPH with average speeds of 195 MPH. Tony Stewart took a break from the track and put developmental driver, Danica Patrick in his #14 Chevrolet in Monday’s test session.
