Great Race Weekend At Sonoma Raceway #badasswilson

NASCAR Race Mom had a great race weekend at Sonoma Raceway.

Just six days after driver, Justin Wilson, was killed after a freak crash at Pocono Raceway, the racing community and Sonoma Raceway embraced the Wilson Family with numerous tributes to its fallen hero.

“Thanks for everyone who has reached out with support and the amazing tributes everyone has been paying,” Stefan Wilson (Justin’s younger brother) expressed. “I’m very, very grateful to all of the support shown to Justin’s family. That was his No. 1 priority to take care of his daughters. That has become my priority as well. I expected a few T-shirt sales - not a few thousands. It’s been overwhelming the support everyone has shown for their future.”

Among those who are reaching out to support Wilson’s widow, Julia, and young daughters, Jane and Jessica, is American Honda and Honda Performance Development.

American Honda and HPD will contribute $50 per lap completed at Sonoma by each of the 13 Honda entries at this weekend’s race for a possible donation of just over $55,000 to the Wilson Children’s’ Fund.

INDYCAR paid tributes to Justin Wilson before the ‘Go Pro Grand Prix of Sonoma’ included a tribute video, special signage for the children’s fund, and sky writing pilots drawing No. 25 in the sky above Sonoma Raceway.

Not to be denied, Scott Dixon’s season finale win propelled him into the points lead for his fourth IndyCar championship. Juan Pablo Montoya, who had led the standings from the season-opener until the final lap of the year, suddenly found himself tied in the point standings. The tie and title went to Dixon based on number of wins: Sunday was Dixon's third of the season, while Montoya only had two!

Equally as exciting was the Formula Car Challenge’s returning to Sonoma Raceway after a year hiatus. This series took center stage at the Sonoma Raceway with its double race format featuring Pro Mazda (PFM), FormulaSPEED (FS2.0), and Formula Mazda (FM). Competitors from around the country convened at the Northern California facility to compete alongside the IndyCar Finale! 

Formula Mazda (FM) - No one is having more fun!!!

BMR Announces NAPA Filters Drivers Expo Powered By Toyota #nascar

Eleven talented young drivers with diverse racing backgrounds will participate in a first-ever NAPA Filters Drivers Expo powered by Toyota in Roseville, California on Thursday and Friday. 

The event – a driver combine and racing seminar packaged together – will be held at BMR’s facilities and at nearby All American Speedway, a challenging track where BMR has a winning record.

“We’re very excited about this opportunity to bring together such a great group of talented young drivers with such diverse racing backgrounds,” said BMR President Bill McAnally. “We have put together a great staff of veteran personnel to work with them as we run them through their paces for two days of on-track and off-track activities and provide some engaging classroom presentations.”

Drivers scheduled to participate include:
  1. Amber Balcaen, 23, of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada;
  2. Ariel Biggs, 20, of Hoquiam, Washington;
  3. Eddie Cheever III, 22, of Rome;
  4. Todd Gilliland, 15, of Sherrils Ford, North Carolina;
  5. Brock Heger, 15, of El Centro, California;
  6. Riley Herbst, 16, of Las Vegas;
  7. Mariah McGriff, 20, Vail, Arizona;
  8. Kyle Plott, 19, Marietta, Georgia;
  9. Vanessa Robinson, 25, of Las Cruces, New Mexico;
  10. Blaine Rocha, 17, of Oakdale, California;
  11. Zane Smith, 16, of Mooresville, North Carolina.

“These drivers will have the opportunity to get behind the wheel of one of our NAPA Toyotas and see first-hand what it’s like to drive a NASCAR K&N Pro Series car,” McAnally said.

“All American Speedway is a tough track to master, with each end of the track being distinctly different. So, it will be a good opportunity to evaluate how each driver adapts to the challenge.”

The drivers will be paired with a coach from among a group of championship and race-winning veteran drivers and crew chiefs. On-track action is scheduled both afternoons.

In addition to turning laps, the drivers will also receive presentations on key points in the racing industry. Fox television analyst Larry McReynolds heads up the list of presenters, along with representatives from NASCAR, Toyota, and NAPA AUTO PARTS.

Sacramento area media will also be part of the event, as they conduct one-on-one interviews at the track with the drivers on Thursday afternoon and participate in a press conference with the drivers at BMR that evening.

Activities continue on Friday, with presentations at BMR in the morning and on-track activities that afternoon. 

Bill McAnally Racing (BMR) was founded in 1986 and is owned by former NASCAR K & N Pro Series West driver, Bill McAnally, with one vision; winning races and championships. 

BMR is dedicated to finding talented people and placing them to make the racing machine roll. BMR serves as a marketing tool for their race partners to increase sales and brand recognition.

The family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Wilson Children’s Fund care of INDYCAR.

The K&N Pro Series West Championship
Close and Heated (#knwest #nascar)

As Rookie Ryan Partridge provided the fans with a dominant performance last Saturday night at the Colorado National Speedway, backing-up his first series pole into his first series win, one cannot help but notice just how close and heated this 2015 K&N Pro Series Points Championship is.

The 25-year-old from Rancho Cucamonga, California, won his first ‘Coors Light Pole Award’ and then went on to led all but one lap in the ‘NAPA Auto Parts 150’ while driving the No. 9 Sunrise Ford / Eirbach Springs / Lucas Oil Ford. Chris Eggleston led briefly on a Lap 29 restart.

His win moved Partridge into a tie with Chris Eggleston for the points lead. The top-five drivers are separated by a mere eighteen points. They still have three races left to battle for the top prize; the 2015 Pro Series West Championship.
  1. Chris Eggleston (No. 99 NAPA Filters/H20 Fire Protection Toyota) with 396
  2. Ryan Partridge* (No. 9 Sunrise Ford/Eibach Springs/Lucas Oil Ford) with 396
  3. Noah Gragson* (No. 7 AlertID/Colliers International Ford) with 390
  4. Gracin Raz* (No. 27 Montana Tech Ford) with 384
  5. David Mayhew (No. 17 MMI Services/Ron’s Rear Ends/Pour House Chevrolet) with 378
The remaining competition for the 2015 West Championship should prove an exciting mixture of young talent and team strategy as each point earned will prove precious.

Help Speedy the Bear bring Smiles To Kids
in the Speediatrics Unit (#nascar)

During the summertime, the hospital is no place you want your child to be. Splashing in the pool or bicycling around the neighborhood is what summer means to most children. Unfortunately for some children, they are being poked and prodded with blood being drawn and tests being run.

Through the bright, colorful Speediatrics Units decorated with fun characters and racing imagery, the NASCAR Foundation hopes to help ease the pain, but that's not all our children need! They need medical care delivered with ease and comfort, and that's how Speedy the Bear and YOU can help!

Speedy helps bring a smile to each child in the Speediatrics Unit.  However, the program is now in need of new bears for the kids. 

Please join and help the NASCAR Foundation in reaching their goal of providing a hundred (100) bears this summer. 

 For just $25, you can provide a bear to a sick child today. They will deliver the bear and a "get well soon" card signed in your name to the kids in the Speediatrics Unit.

Every generous gift of $25, $50, or even $100 helps us provide comfort to sick children.

Your generous gift will bring smiles and health care
to children who need it most this summer!

They will deliver Speedy and a get well card signed in your name!

On the heels of the wildly-popular and first-of-its-kind event for millennials last Fall, Chip Ganassi Racing Teams (CGRT) announced today the return of the Ganassi Sound Garage featuring Big Machine Label Group’s (BMLG) recording artist A Thousand Horses at the team’s Concord, N.C., headquarters on Oct. 5. Ganassi Sound Garage will be hosted by a diverse sampling of the team’s millennial driver lineup, including Kyle Larson (NASCAR), Sage Karam (INDYCAR), Dylan Kwasniewski (NASCAR) and Brennan Poole (NASCAR).

Last year’s inaugural social media concert showcased the talents of Big Machine Records recording artist and season 3 winner of The Voice Cassadee Pope and won an industry award for NASCAR’s “Most Creative Use of Social/Digital Media”. This year’s event will once again be streamed live on, and for fans all around the world to enjoy.

“The return of Ganassi Sound Garage has been met with tremendous support and I’m happy to say this year’s edition will be bigger and better than its debut with the participation of partners like Target, McDonald’s, Chevrolet, Coke, Kimberly Clark, Unilever, Energizer, Clorox and DC Solar.

      • A Thousand Horses: A Thousand Horses is a fresh fusion of classic sounds – a hybrid of Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Allman Brothers, Black Crowes and Exile on Main Street-era Rolling Stones - wrapped up in a modern-country context. Their first single “Smoke” went to #1 on both the Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay Charts after making Country Aircheck history as the highest debut for a new artist’s first single.

      They also became the first band (with at least three members) to send a debut single to #1 on Billboard Country Airplay Chart this decade. With Michael Hobby leading vocals, Bill Satcher and Zach Brown on guitar and Graham Deloach on bass, the band initially gained momentum playing clubs across the South. Rolling Stone Country hailed the foursome as the Best Up-and-Comer at 2014’s Austin City Limits and USA Today named them one of 2015’s Artists to Watch and an On the Verge Artist.

      Their first album on the Big Machine Label Group, Southernality, is now available on iTunes and the second single from the album, “(This Ain’t No) Drunk Dial is currently making its way up the Country charts. The band was also recently nominated for a CMT Music Award for “Group Video of the Year” for their hit single “Smoke.” A Thousand Horses is currently on the road with Darius Rucker’s Southern Style Tour.

      RIP - NASCAR Legend Buddy Baker
      Passes Away at 74

      Baker’s NASCAR Career as Driver and Broadcaster Spanned Parts of Seven Decades

      Elzie Wylie “Buddy” Baker Jr., the 1980 Daytona 500 champion and famed NASCAR commentator, has died after a battle with cancer. He was 74 (b. 1-25-41).

      RIP - NASCAR Legend Buddy Baker Passes Away at 74

      At 6 feet 6 inches tall, Buddy Baker was often called the “Gentle Giant,” though the nickname “Leadfoot” was more apropos due to the blistering speeds he often achieved during his 33-year career.

      In 1970, Baker became the first driver to eclipse the 200-mph mark on a closed course while testing at Talladega Superspeedway. Although he didn’t win at the 2.66-mile superspeedway that year, Baker visited Talladega Victory Lane four times throughout his stellar career.

      A race commentator and radio host during a lengthy and prolific post-racing career, the Charlotte, North Carolina native’s biggest win came in the 1980 Daytona 500. He finished with an average race speed of 177.602 mph – a track record that still stands.

      “Many of today’s fans may know Buddy Baker as one of the greatest storytellers in the sport’s history, a unique skill that endeared him to millions,” said NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France. “But those who witnessed his racing talent recognized Buddy as a fast and fierce competitor, setting speed records and winning on NASCAR’s biggest stages. It is that dual role that made Buddy an absolute treasure who will be missed dearly.”

      RIP - NASCAR Legend Buddy Baker Passes Away at 74
      Baker, son of NASCAR Hall of Famer Buck Baker, accumulated 19 wins in the premier series, including a victory in the 1970 Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway where he lapped the rest of the field. In 1972-73, Baker became the first driver to win consecutive World 600s. He also won the inaugural preseason event now known as the Sprint Unlimited in 1979. He was named one of NASCAR’s 50 Greatest Drivers in 1998, and in 2014 was first nominated for inclusion into the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

      After retiring in 1992, Baker made a successful transition to the television booth as a commentator for The Nashville Network and CBS. He most recently served as a radio co-host on “Late Shift” and “Tradin’ Paint” for SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.

      Get The Name of Your Choice On A #NASCAR!

      When you are watching a NASCAR race, you’ll notice that the cars are full of different logos and decals for companies and organizations that sponsor the driver. 

      Moses Smith (my son) proudly displayed his sponsor's logo on his hood.
      The HASA Pool Products #16 K&N Pro Series West Car

      Have you ever wondered how much the privilege of that advertising cost? According to Adweek, a primary sponsorship in 2013 cost anywhere from $5 million to $35 million. An associate sponsorship cost anywhere from $250,000 to $2 million!

      Now you do not have to be a multimillion dollar business like the Duck Commander and the Robertson family (Franchise of TV's "Duck Dynasty" signed on in 2014 to lend namesake to a Texas Cup race) to see your name or special message in a NASCAR race on a participating race car. 

      Willie Robertson and Family sponsor a race!

      "We're excited about the partnership for the Duck Commander 500, being aligned with NASCAR, and to have our brand associated with an event of this magnitude," shared Duck Commander CEO Willie Robertson in February of 2014. "We are all big fans of NASCAR and have been all our lives. It's especially exciting to see our brand join to make it an awesome experience for the fan base and we can't think of a better place than our neighbor at the Texas Motor Speedway."

      Fortunately, you do not have to have Millions - Thanks to Mary Dixon from (Making Dreams Reality Through Motorsports), you can now place your name, business logo, or name of a loved one on Joey Gase’s #52 NASCAR Xfinity Series car.

      "It was the dream of two of our group members to promote cancer prevention and awareness through motorsports. We are so excited to help their dream come true, contribute to these terrific charities, and have FUN with all of our names on Joey Gase's car hood!"

      For a minimum $25 donation, your name or logo will appear on Joey's car hood for the Xfinity race at Charlotte Motor Speedway this October. If you want the name listed even LARGER on the car hood, the $50 donation is the reasonable cost. Lastly you could do as NASCAR Race Mom did and donate $100 for placement of a picture of my logo!

      Now I cannot wait for the “The Drive for the Cure 300 presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina.” This race features the NASCAR XFINITY Series regulars beating and banging in a Friday night slugfest under the lights at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Then I will be able to cross off “be a NASCAR Sponsor” from my bucket list.

      Even More Importantly - Proceeds from this project will be divided equally between The American Cancer Society and St Jude’s Children’s Hospital
