2018 Musical #NASCAR Chairs Continues

2018 Musical #NASCAR Chairs Continues
Kasey Kahne will pilot the No. 95 Chevrolet Camaro  for Leavine Family Racing (LFR) #NASCAR

Kasey Kahne will pilot the No. 95 Chevrolet Camaro for the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) season for Leavine Family Racing (LFR). Kahne, who has driven for Hendrick Motorsports since 2012, has signed on to be LFR's primary driver for the 2018 season.

“I feel like (Leavine has) really made a lot of gains in the past couple years,” Kahne told NASCAR.com of his new team. “It’s pretty cool to watch, any time you see a small team do what they’ve done in our sport.

“The opportunity will be a challenge, but also a lot of fun. I enjoy a challenge and I enjoy working with people. The best part about it is us all being a team and trying to improve every single weekend and learning from what we do one week and improving the next. I think that’s something we’ll be able to do. And I’m really excited about it.”



Michael McDowell joins Front Row Motorsports. #NASCAR
Front Row Motorsports will step up its two-car Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series program in 2018 with an elevated partnership with Ford Performance and ten-year #MENCS Veteran Michael McDowell.

McDowell joins the team after four years with Leavine Family Racing. The 32-year-old Phoenix, Ariz., native raced a Front Row Motorsports entry once previously in his Cup series career, at Watkins Glen International in 2013. The former open-wheel racer was the 2004 Star Mazda Series champion and 2007 ARCA Re/MAX Series Rookie of the Year. He earned a Cup career-best fourth-place finish at Daytona International Speedway in July of this year.

“Since I first drove for Bob at Watkins Glen, we’ve kept in touch and have felt like there might be an opportunity to work together again, and the timing worked out perfectly,” McDowell said. “It’s been a while since I’ve had a teammate, so I’m really looking forward to working with David, whom I’ve become pretty good friends with over the years. As a team now, we go into the season knowing we have five or six races that put us in position to get a win and earn a spot in the playoffs.”

Landon Cassill is without a #NASCAR Ride for 2018.
That leaves Landon Cassill in the “free agent” category with the likes of Danica Patrick, Aric Almirola and Matt Kenseth.

However it is early yet in the 2017 silly season.

Team Penske 2017 NASCAR XFINITY Series Season Review

Team Penske 2017 #NASCAR XFINITY Series Season Review
When the green flag waved on the 2017 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) season at Daytona International Speedway in February, Team Penske looked to rebound from a 2016 campaign that simply did not meet expectations. The goal for the organization’s championship-winning NXS program was simple, win as many races as possible and bring home the NXS Owners’ title, a feat that Team Penske had achieved in three of the past four seasons entering 2017. The team proved to be up for the task in 2017, but it certainly faced and overcame its challenges along the way.


Team Penske 2017 #NASCAR XFINITY Series Season Review

Over the course of the season, crew chief Greg Erwin and the No. 22 Ford Mustang team prepared race-winning cars for five different drivers. While that might sound simple, matching driving styles and setup preferences successfully with multiple drivers was no easy process. Turning challenges into opportunities, the team went on to record one of the most consistent and successful seasons on record at Team Penske.

Splitting time in the No. 22 Ford Mustang in 2017 were Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers Brad Keselowksi, Joey Logano and Ryan Blaney. Also joining the driver lineup was former INDYCAR champion and 2006 Indianapolis 500 winner Sam Hornish Jr., who also had enjoyed a productive NASCAR career for Team Penske. In addition, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series regular and eventual Championship Four finalist Austin Cindric made his XFINITY Series debut at Road America for Team Penske in August.

Team Penske 2017 #NASCAR XFINITY Series Season Review
For Keselowski, the 2010 NASCAR XFINITY Series and 2012 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion, the season began with his usual consistency. Scoring two top-five finishes to open the season, Keselowski helped position the team solidly in the discussion for the 2017 Owner Championship from the outset. The driver from Rochester Hills, Mich., went on to record his first of two victories at Pocono Raceway in June driving the No. 22 SKF Ford, and then he visited Victory Circle in the Fitzgerald Glider Kits Mustang at Richmond International Raceway in September for the last of his nine series starts this season. In all, Keselowksi never finished outside the top 10 in NXS competition, and he recorded seven top-five finishes.

Logano split his 10 series starts between both the No. 22 and the No. 12 Ford Mustang, which competed in select races in 2017. Logano drove the No. 12 REV Group Ford to victory at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in the third race of the season. He came agonizingly close to several other victories in the No. 22 Mustang over the course of the season, but varying circumstances kept the Middletown, CT native from adding another tally to his 2017 NXS win total. Logano also proved to be consistently productive with only one finish outside of the top 10, which came as the result of an engine failure at Texas Motor Speedway. Logano posted nine top-10 and six top-five finishes throughout the season. He also won three poles for the team, including a third-consecutive pole award at Watkins Glen International, where he finished second – just one spot shy of a third straight victory on the upstate New York road course.



NASCAR’s new rules limiting starts for Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series veterans also added intrigue to the 2017 XFINITY Series season. With Keselowski and Logano limited to a maximum of 10 NXS starts, that meant additional seat time for young guns like Blaney, who did not disappoint in his 13 starts for Team Penske in the series.

Team Penske 2017 #NASCAR XFINITY Series Season ReviewBlaney scored a victory in both the No. 12 and No. 22 Mustangs, along with seven second-place finishes, and only one result outside of the top 10, due to late-race contact with another competitor. Subtracting that 26th-place result at Chicago, Blaney produced a remarkable average finishing position of 2.25 in his 12 best races. He scored his first victory of the year in the No. 12 Snap-on Tools Ford Mustang at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the spring. Blaney won again, this time behind the wheel of the No. 22 Fitzgerald Glider Kits Ford at Dover during the XFINITY Playoffs, which helped propel the team into the next round. Blaney drove every companion NXS playoff race for Team Penske, with the exception of the event at Homestead-Miami Speedway, where he was ineligible to compete as a full-time Cup Series driver.

Despite Blaney’s incredible season, one of the biggest moments of the year belonged to Hornish as he made a triumphant return to Team Penske. The Defiance, Ohio native scored a bucket list victory in August at his home track – the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Hornish dominated the event as he started from the pole and led 61 of the 75 laps before parking the No. 22 Discount Tire Ford back in Victory Lane for the first time since Texas in 2015.

With stellar performances in the NXS playoffs from both Hornish and Blaney, the No. 22 team advanced to Homestead-Miami Speedway with a chance to secure the team’s fourth Owner Championship. Competing against the three top teams over the course of the season, including eventual truck series champion Christopher Bell in the Joe Gibbs Racing No. 18 car, Roger Penske called on the former Indianapolis 500 winner to finish the job.

Team Penske 2017 #NASCAR XFINITY Series Season ReviewHornish qualified eighth at Homestead, but Erwin remained poised as he and the team had built a car for the long run and they were confident it would deliver the championship at the end of the night. Hornish fought through some obstacles in the opening stages of the race, and as night began to fall over the speedway, it became clear that the team’s strategy had worked to near perfection.

The Ford EcoBoost 300 ran under the green flag to its completion as Hornish ran conservative lap timesRichard Childress Racing Continues Longtime Partnership with Johnny Morris and Bass Pro Shops in 2018 to Celebrate Cabela'szzz on request of the team, and he finishing the race in the second position. The result clinched the fourth NASCAR XFINITY Series Owner Championship for Roger Penske in the last five seasons, a culmination of the collective team effort.


For the season, the No. 22 Ford Mustang visited Victory Lane four times, with three different drivers, and recorded an astonishing 10 second-place finishes. The No. 12 Mustang produced two wins and served as a valuable team car when visiting tracks with new surfaces. Overall it was an impressive performance that brought Team Penske its second of three championships earned during the memorable 2017 season.

Richard Childress Racing (RCR) announced plans to continue its partnership with Bass Pro Shops during the 2018 racing season. Bass Pro Shops and Cabela's will serve as a primary sponsor for the No. 31 Chevrolet Camaro in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and the No. 3 Chevrolet Camaro in the NASCAR XFINITY Series.

The partnership also includes several races as primary sponsor in the XFINITY Series with drivers Austin Dillon and Ty Dillon, and a season-long associate sponsorship in both the Cup and XFINITY Series.

"Our relationship with Bass Pro Shops dates back to the mid-1990s and we're thrilled to be able to continue it during the 2018 season," said RCR's Chairman and CEO, Richard Childress. "Austin, Ty and Ryan are terrific ambassadors for the great outdoors. They are all passionate about our hunting, fishing and conservation heritage which has made this partnership thrive. Next season will be exciting as we welcome Cabela's, the iconic outdoor brand acquired by Bass Pro Shops, to the RCR family."

"Like so many of our loyal customers, we cannot wait to see Bass Pro Shops and Cabela's side-by-side on the race cars and in Victory Lane. We know many of our customers, conservation partners and associates have an affinity for NASCAR which has made our partnership with RCR so successful. We're excited to get things started with the Daytona 500 in February."

#NASCAR Driver Ryan Blaney to Guest Star on NBC's "TAKEN"

#NASCAR Driver Ryan Blaney to Guest Star on NBC's "TAKEN"
NASCAR driver Ryan Blaney will guest star in the upcoming season of NBC’s "Taken" (premiering Jan. 12). 


The episode, titled "Imperium," will air in 2018 and will feature Blaney as a Special Agent with a very particular set of driving skills. When a dangerous weapons dealer smuggles his wares into New York City, Bryan Mills (Clive Standen) teams up with the FBI in a race to stop him before he reaches the safety of international waters.

At just 23-years old, third generation racer and son of veteran NASCAR driver Dave Blaney, Ryan Blaney is a key pillar of NASCAR’s youth movement. Full of enthusiasm and passion, Ryan drove his second full Monster Energy NASCAR Cup season this past year through an alliance between Team Penske and the Wood Brothers.


#NASCAR Driver Ryan Blaney to Guest Star on NBC's "TAKEN"In 2018, Ryan will be behind the wheel of Team Penske’s No. 12 Ford for his third season in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and will also be running a limited NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) schedule for the seventh season. In 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup season, the Wood Brothers and Ryan scored a win at Pocono Raceway, poles at Kansas Speedway and Phoenix Raceway, and led over 300 laps en route to a nine-race playoff run and a ninth-place finish overall in the final driver points standings. In 2017 NXS competition, Ryan was victorious in Charlotte and Dover, managed a remarkable 12 top-five finishes in 13 starts, and helped Team Penske secure its fourth NXS Owners’ Championship.

Earlier in his career Ryan competed for Brad Keselowski Racing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series where he won multiple races between 2012 and 2015. With wins in each of NASCAR’s three major touring series, Ryan is part of an elite group of drivers to hold that distinction. With a strong pedigree in racing, it was clear from an early age that Ryan had a bright career ahead of him on the track. He started his racing career in quarter midgets and won his first race at age nine. He has competed in and has been successful in Bandolero cars, Legend cars, late-model stock cars, and the ARCA Racing Series before making his debut in NASCAR’s K&N Pro Series West.


Blaney has previously acted and appeared in several movies and television shows including Logan Lucky, Cars 3 and American Ninja Warrior.

#NASCAR Driver Ryan Blaney to Guest Star on NBC's "TAKEN"


From executive producer Luc Besson ("Taken," "The Fifth Element"), "Taken" is a modern-day, edge-of-your-seat thriller that follows a young but deadly Bryan Mills (Clive Standen, "Vikings"), former CIA spy Christina Hart (Jennifer Beals, "The L Word," "The Last Tycoon") and a team of covert operatives as they embark on rescue missions around the world – a job that employs Bryan’s very particular, and very dangerous, set of skills. In 30 years, this character is destined to become the Bryan Mills that we’ve come to love from the "Taken" films. Also starring Adam Goldberg ("Fargo") and Jessica Camacho ("The Flash"). Executive produced by Besson, Greg Plageman and Matthew Gross.

Message for Kyle Petty

I always say the best way to see the country is from the seat of a motorcycle. The sights, the smells, the colors are more brilliant and everything you see comes alive when you ride. When the Charity Ride began in 1995, we had no idea it would become the huge fundraising event it is today. We were just a bunch of guys riding our Harleys and having a good time! Then we realized we could help others and it became so much more. Today, I’m proud to say we’ve raised over $17.5 million to support Victory Junction and other children’s charities. The Ride Across America is the ultimate motorcycle experience and we’d love for you to join us!
