Regan Smith will replace Tony Stewart in the Sprint Cup race after a sprint car incident Saturday that killed driver Kevin Ward Jr.
Mark Martin has returned to Roush Fenway Racing as a coach. No word on whether he’ll race again.
Former Texas Motor Speedway winner Sebastien Bourdais returned to Victory Lane in an Indy car two weeks ago at Toronto. The four-time series champion won his 32nd race, taking sole possession of eighth place on the all-time Indy car wins list.
Bourdais won an IROC race at TMS in 2005, beating several NASCAR stars at their own game.
Logano passes Gordon in Turn 1 of the final lap and wins the Duck Commander 500.
Now it’s back to writing, because the DRC copy desk has a paper to get out. Read the full race recap in Tuesday’s Record-Chronicle and at DentonRC.com.
Joey Logano was yards away from taking the white flag and having a guaranteed win if a caution flew, and the caution came out before he got there. There was debris on the track.
Jeff Gordon took two tires and will be the leader. Logano is third with four fresh tires.
I feel a late caution coming on. Logano leads Keselowski by 1.7 seconds.
Logano leads by a cool 4.7 seconds. Final pit stops beginning. No pressure, guys. Remember Hamlin.
Caution out for debris. Top four on the restart will be Logano, Gordon, Keselowski and Larson. Two Fords, two Chevys. Larson gained two spots on his pit stop, passing the top two Toyotas.
The Duck Commander 500 has reached the halfway point. Should the weather change and it starts to rain, this race will be over and official.
