The Furious 7 300 will feature cast member Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, who will serve as the Grand Marshal as drivers in the NASCAR XFINITY Series help set the stage for the weekend that will feature the first race in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, according to a news release from the Speedway.

Without a win in the next eight races, Stewart will be sitting on the outside again cheering on teammates Kevin Harvick and Kurt Busch when the Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship starts. “We’re ready to get back to Victory Lane”. His 2013 season was cut short after he broke his right leg in a sprint-car crash that August. “So, you know, I’m holding him (crew chief Chad Johnston) and the team back versus vice versa”.

“The whole year’s been frustrating”, Stewart said during a teleconference Tuesday.

Stewart has three wins at NHMS and has led more laps (971) in the last 20 races than any other driver. The Furniture Row Racing driver had five top-10 finishes previous year; he had 14 top-10s in the first 15 races this season.

“I think for us right now, we’ll still work as hard as we can to get the best result we can out of it”.

Kyle Larson has two top-5 finishes at New Hampshire.

Brad Keselowski won in the summer and Joey Logano in the Chase for the Sprint Cup last year for a Team Penske sweep in a fruitful year in New England. This is probably the most important track to me on the schedule because it really is my home track we are doing a lot of stuff with my foundation around the race weekend here.

Both the Sprint Cup and Xfinity Series’ will use a two-round format that could see multiple cars on the track simultaneously.

Jeff Gordon: Ends his career with no wins at Kentucky, but he will have 96 bottles of bourbon on the wall. He is 28th in the series standings, which may not sound like much, but at one point he was 36th.

Stewart is entering his 10th season as owner of the Eldora Speedway dirt track in Rossburg, Ohio, and is preparing to host the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series for a third consecutive year. “I don’t feel like he’s what’s holding us back”.

NASCAR is truly all over the map. In 26 career starts, Johnson has three wins and ten finishes of fifth or better.

“I think this coming weekend has a chance to be a very positive one for the No. 18 ARRIS Toyota Camry team”, Suarez said.

Kevin Harvick is 7/2 and has a decent track record at New Hampshire. We’re more competitive and spending more time up front every week, but we still have to keep pushing and learning. “I really want to thank U.S. Cellular for helping me make this happen”. The third-year Cup driver has an average start of 22.5 and an average finish of 22.1. Will a new victor emerge on Sunday?

When NASCAR made adjustments to its rules package for last week’s Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway, it did not have the same desired effort for Stewart as it did for race victor Kyle Busch.

On Sunday, Castroneves ran a marvelous race after starting dead last on the grid and passed everybody but race-winner Sebastien Bourdais.
