When Brian V Macklin goes sim-racing nowadays you could say the fix is in. That’s because he favors the fixed setup versions of his favorite series, be it NASCAR Class A, B or C. Why not? With 29 wins in 97 starts in the Gen6, Chevy COT and Chevy Silverado in Season 1 – so far — the iRacing setups seem to be working for him . . . just as the generic iRacing package did in 2012 when the Harrington, Delaware sim-racer captured the overall National series title on the strength of six wins and 18 top fives.

Jeff Gordon’s team boss Rick Hendrick has defended his driver’s retaliatory crash with Clint Bowyer at Phoenix last weekend, saying Bowyer had got away with denying his squad its 200th NASCAR Sprint Cup win at Martinsville earlier this year.

Jimmie Johnson overtook title rival Brad Keselowski in a green-white-chequered finish to claim his fifth win of the NASCAR Sprint Cup season on Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway. Five-time champion Johnson, who had led nearly half the race distance before the final green flag, drove around the outside of Keselowski with one lap remaining. That followed a close battle at the previous restart where the Penske racer managed to remain ahead while resisting a fierce, fender-banging, attack from the Chase leader

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers have expressed mixed views over the upcoming repaving of Kansas Speedway, where they compete on the current surface for the last time this weekend. Following recent resurfacing and reconfiguration projects at a number of NASCAR tracks, such as Daytona, Phoenix and Michigan, and with changes to Bristol looming, Kansas is yet another venue set to take on a different look before the Cup field returns again

Brian Vickers has had his Michael Waltrip Racing deal increased to encompass the two NASCAR Sprint Cup road course races at Sears Point and Watkins Glen this year. The former Red Bull driver was initially set to fill in for Mark Martin in the #55 Toyota Camry at only six races, but his fifth place on his Cup return at Bristol earlier this month has convinced the team to have a rethink

Tony Stewart claimed his third NASCAR Sprint Cup win of the season at Martinsville by passing Jimmie Johnson on the penultimate lap, and jumped back up to second in the Chase standings.

The field has been set based on the owner points standings, which place all the title contenders on the first six rows of the grid.

April 3rd, 2011
NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers have voiced concern about tyres wearing too fast following practice and qualifying for Sunday’s race at Martinsville. It is the second time in three weeks that Cup teams have been faced with tyre issues after Goodyear and NASCAR had to switch tyre specifications following the first practice session at Bristol due to excessive wear on right-side tyres. As was the case at Bristol, Goodyear has brought a new tyre specification relative to the past at Martinsville, which is also a half-mile track but with the lowest cornering speeds of the season among all ovals
