Taylor Swift Car to Debut at Kansas NASCAR Race

I mentioned in Friday's NASCAR preview of today's race, Taylor Swift was moving into the Cup Race in a  big way.

The country diva's marketing plan for her album 'Red' has included pizza boxes and commercials for Target, but now, the singer will help get fans revved up at the Hollywood Casino 400 of the NASCAR Sprint Cup series later today. You can hear the action on WBKR 92.5 and wbkr.com starting at noon.

NASCAR’s in Kansas

Weekend Preview: Hollywood Casino 400

 On a country music note, Juan Montoya’s car this weekend will be red-but not for his usual Target sponsorship but for Taylor Swift’s new album “Red.” The deluxe edition of her fourth studio album, Red, will be available exclusively at Target and Target.com nationwide on Oct. 22, just one day after the big race. His traditionally red racecar will be painted stark white with bright red detailing, and features the artwork from Taylor 's Red CD cover.

Following last week’s Sprint Cup Series homecoming in Charlotte, the series is back on the road this weekend for the Hollywood Casino 400. After Wednesday and Thursday test sessions, drivers and teams may be thinking like Dorothy and saying “We aren’t in Kansas anymore.”

For the first time since the 1979 Southern 500, there will not be an Earnhardt in the Sprint Cup Series field. Dale Earnhardt, Jr. has been sidelined for the next 2 weeks due to a concussion he received last Sunday in the Talladega race. Regan Smith will replace Earnhardt both this week at Charlotte and next week at Kansas. Smith, who was scheduled to make his debut in James Finch’s #51 this weekend has been replaced by A.J. Allmendinger in that machine. Dale Earnhardt, Jr. has told reporters that he plans to not be at the track this weekend.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Has Concussion [VIDEO]

Well, my man Dale Earnhardt Jr. gave it his all this 2012 race season: he had 1 win and numerous top 10 finishes and was locked in for the Chase for the Sprint Cup. After this past Sunday's Talladega race and a big crash on the last lap, it turns out Dale Jr. has a concussion, according to Hendrick Motorsports. Earnhardt will sit out Charlotte and Kansas, and Regan Smith will replace him in the No. 88 Chevrolet. Earnhardt was diagnosed Wednesday in Charlotte, the team said.

Darrell Waltrip Among 5 of the Best Smackdowns in NASCAR History

On Sunday at Talladega, defending NASCAR Sprint Cup champ Tony Stewart set off a 25-car wreck, which somehow Matt Kenseth avoided, allowing him to come away with the win under caution. Fortunately this huge pile-up didn't lead to any infield confrontations, but quite often they do. According to Tom Barrabi, our TSM Interactive buddy, the NASCAR circuit has produced its fair share of high-profile feuds over the years (many involving Stewart). Most of the time, these disputes are settled with a few choice words and some mild jostling. On the other hand, it's never a huge surprise when two drivers come to blows after trading paint. Here's a look at a few of NASCAR's most memorable confrontations:
