Sponsorship extended

TMS president Eddie Gossage and AAA Texas have announced that the insurance company has extended its sponsorship of today’s Sprint Cup race through the 2017 season. This is the fifth year for the race to be called the AAA Texas 500. For its first five years, the fall race was the Dickies 500. Today’s announcement ensures that AAA Texas will now be the longest-tenured title sponsor of this race.

Great finish

Kahne steals one and makes the Chase. Traffic’s thinning — time to head home!

Good crowd

Don’t know what it looks like on TV, but there are a lot of people here. Stands mostly full, infield full, motor home row along backstretch full, parking lots full.
