Boys have at it unless you get close to the bitch.

http://www.scenedaily.com/news/articles/sprintcupseries/Kevin_Harvick_says_NASCAR_has_told_him_he_cant_touch_Kyle_Busch.html

LOUDON, N.H. – Kevin Harvick says he is racing with handcuffs when competing against rival Kyle Busch, whom he and his owner have feuded with since May. Harvick, who finished second behind Busch in the New England 200 on Saturday, told his Nationwide Series team over his radio that he had to be careful around Busch and then confirmed afterward that NASCAR President Mike Helton had warned him at Michigan in June not to touch Busch on the track.
“I was told a few weeks ago that if we touched the 18 car [of Busch], we’d be parked,” Harvick said. “I’ve just got to be really careful. I would have liked to have gotten the track position and slid up and do what I needed to do.
“But I’ve just got to be really careful. That’s the way NASCAR put it to me.”
NASCAR spokesman Kristi King said if there was a conversation between Harvick and Helton, it would remain private. Busch said he has received no warning.
“I had a great race with Harvick – no problem,” Busch said. “I think that’s the way you should race. I raced him just as clean as he raced me, which is great.
“If he got a warning, I’m sorry he got a warning. I did not get a warning. So I do not know that I took advantage of him in any way. I raced hard, I raced clean and I ended up where I am.”
The two drivers have raced clean since coming off probation prior to Michigan. They were put on probation following Darlington where in that race, Harvick and Busch were involved in a crash that took out Harvick teammate Clint Bowyer and then Busch hooked Harvick. Following the race, Harvick got out of his car on pit road and went to punch Busch, who drove away – and into Harvick’s unmanned car.
Both drivers were put on probation. But four weeks later at Kansas, Harvick owner Richard Childress punched Busch following the Camping World Truck Series race.
The next week at Pocono, Harvick appeared to taunt Busch on the track by pinching him down near the apron early in the race and said afterward that he just wanted Busch to know he had one coming.
The following week is when the warning came from Helton.
“It would have been a lot easier to win if you didn’t have handcuffs put on you, but that’s the way NASCAR said we had to do it,” Harvick said.

Kyle Busch 26 years old, puts mark on history with Loudon victory

Third on the all time win list!

http://nationwide.nascar.com/nationwide-series/sites/default/files/new.665.jpg?1310860498

Share of history
Kyle Busch gets his 100th career victory and tied Mark Martin atop the Nationwide record books with his hard-fought victory in the New England 200 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

The victory was Busch's sixth of the season in 15 starts and the 49th of his career, tying Martin. At the same time, Busch, 26, won for the 100th time in NASCAR's top three series combined.

Busch chose the inside lane, beat Harvick through Turns 1 and 2 and had a flag displaying the number 100 waiting for him at the stripe. Kasey Kahne ran third behind Busch and Harvick, followed by Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Aric Almirola.

With history in his sights, Busch passed Stenhouse for the lead on Lap 173 and began to pull away.

To Busch, the most significant pass took place on Lap 152, when he split Harvick and Keselowski to take the second position.

"I think the reason we won today was the pass out of [Turn 4], getting between the 22 [Keselowski] and the 33 [Harvick]," Busch said. "It was so tough to pass that any time you saw an opportunity, you'd better just jump on it."

NASCAR is willing to do anything for ratings. They want nothing more than the guy everyone loves to hate to be in the hunt for the title. People will tune in and show up at the tracks just to boo him. They proved that over the wrist slap he was given for being too low earlier this year.

Kyle Busch can’t fathom what it was like racing in the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s with Hall of Fame drivers Richard Petty and David Pearson.

Since he can’t go back in time, he’s not sure about the historical significance of winning 100 NASCAR races today compared to then, when Petty was on his way to a record 200 Cup wins and Pearson won 105, second on the all-time list. Busch is third on the all-time list.

Gordon to travel with Clinton Global Initiative
By Dan Gelston - The Associated Press
Saturday, Jul. 16, 2011

Jeff Gordon is spending his off weekend far, far from the track: All the way in the Congo.

Gordon leaves right after Sunday's race at New Hampshire as part of the Clinton Global Initiative. Gordon, part of a group that he said included actress Ashley Judd, will visit a refugee camp in the Congo. Gordon said he's been planning the trip since last year.

"My expectations are to see some jaw-dropping, eye-opening experiences that are going to change my life forever," he said. "Hopefully, we can do some very good things to try to change that in the future."

Gordon works with various charitable endeavors, including his own foundation and hunger relief. He visited a food bank in New Hampshire and donated $10,000. He plans to visit Rwanda in December.

It's a short trip, he'll return Friday, and he'll keep fans updated through his Twitter feed. The four-time Cup champion hopes the trip will aid him in further development in the Jeff Gordon Children's Foundation Pediatric Cancer Treatment Research.

"You realize that the government has a tough enough time controlling and keeping things safe, so there's definitely a little bit of fear that's built in there," he said. "It's a short trip, but I think it's very valuable, and I think it's important to what our cause is about. If we are really going to stand behind the work that we're wanting to do, how can you do it from that far of a distance without really getting in there and truly understanding it?"

https://twitter.com/#!/ShowtimeTate

Seahawks WR Golden Tate took a shot at NASCAR when he went on Twitter and said that you don’t need to be an athlete to drive a car in circles.


Some quotes from Tate:

Tate: "Jimmy johnson up for best athlete???? Um nooo .. Driving a car does not show athleticism.”

“I'm not arguing that the sport isn't hard... If it was easy everyone would do it , I'm Just saying he is not the most athletic."

"Give me 6 months of training amd I could compete"

"it's overrated and apparently I'm a idiot according to car driving fans"

"12th man get these rednecks off me."

"I don't look down on anyone, I think it's hilarious that bc I have a opinion I get called all these names and judge."

“Apologies for my offensive comment to NASCAR fans. I actually read up on it and NO I couldn’t race a car 150 mph”

“I will say my respect for NASCAR has gone up tremendously yalls fans r hard nose and passionate #respect!”

"so if that's the case why wouldn't u just try to educate me versus attack me and call me idiots and etc??"

NASCAR more than dalliance for busy Pastrana

X Games star to honor commitment, has no perceived notions of instant success

With all that is going on in his life these days, Travis Pastrana thought, "What the heck? Why not throw in one more huge undertaking?"
So now he's getting married. In between competing in the X Games, trying to learn how to drive a stock car, making a 3-D movie and simply negotiating the everyday whirlwind that is being Travis Pastrana, he decided to pop the question to fellow X Games star Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins.

Nationwide RaceView

The Nationwide Series version of RaceView 4.0 will make its debut this weekend. You can follow all the action as Travis Pastrana makes his series debut in the Kroger 200 at Lucas Oil Raceway.

Sign up now (http://storefront.nascar.com/raceview)
He did so earlier this year in true Pastrana fashion: off the cuff in Las Vegas, where they both were competing.
"I actually thought she was going to say no because here I am, she's in her skate gear, I'm in my moto[cross] gear and we're in Las Vegas," Pastrana said. "I thought, 'This is the least romantic thing I could possibly do.' But we had all our family and friends there and it just seemed like we were both ready."
She said yes and now they're planning October nuptials.
But before he can focus completely on that, there is this upcoming weekend. Pastrana is splitting his time between the X Games -- where he'll be attempting to win yet another gold medal in Best Trick, Freestyle Motocross (he has won a total of 16 medals, including 11 gold, in his X Games career) -- and Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis, where this Saturday he will make his debut driving the No. 99 Toyota in the Nationwide Series.
Pastrana has admittedly struggled at times in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, where he has run three races in an effort to prepare for this Saturday's Nationwide effort. After finishing a promising sixth in his K&N debut last January, he finished 25th in a Pro Series West race at Phoenix in February and was 22nd in a Pro Series East race at New Hampshire earlier this month.
"I'm learning a lot every weekend and every race," Pastrana said. "Unfortunately, there's a lot more to learn."
Pastrana entered into a three-year agreement with Michael Waltrip and formed Pastrana-Waltrip racing along with Gary and Blake Bechtel earlier this year. Despite his many other commitments, he said he recently reiterated to Waltrip that his long-term professional loyalty lies with giving NASCAR a fair and determined chance.
"Well, we have a three-year deal with Michael and Pastrana-Waltrip Racing and I really hope to continue it a long way past there," Pastrana said. "Michael [recently asked], 'If your results aren't good, is that going to discourage you from driving NASCAR?' And I was like, 'No, it's actually quite the opposite.'
"I love challenges and I moved here because I knew it was going to be a challenge. I've always done better on dirt and I've done better just not on pavement stuff. Definitely, this is the most competitive form of racing probably in the world, so I knew it was going to be a challenge. I knew it was going to be tough. That's why I came over here."
Pastrana said he is not foolish enough to expect instant success overnight.
"It's going to be a long road," he said. "It's probably going to be longer than I expected and not to say that we'll ever make it to the top, but I'm going to make sure that I've put every ounce of my effort into making sure that if I don't make it it's not because of lack of trying. I'm not [going to be] 60 years old going, 'I wish I would've given that another year. I wish I would've tried that more.'
"We've got a long road ahead of us, I know that, but I think we've got a great team, great sponsors, great support and hopefully enough skill to get there."

He said after this weekend's X Games, he's going to give all the motocross, supercross and American rally racing a rest. He said he's going to leave motorcycle and automobile jumping to "my other friends." Even though he did recently announce he's going to also give IndyCar racing a try -- he's going to attempt to win a $5 million bonus that has been offered to any driver from another series who can win the IndyCar season finale at Las Vegas -- he insists that as of next year he's giving up virtually everything else to focus on making progress in NASCAR.

“Michael [recently asked], 'If your results aren't good, is that going to discourage you from driving NASCAR?' And I was like, 'No, it's actually quite the opposite.'”

He also admitted he is nervous about making his Nationwide debut this weekend. But his goals, for now, are modest.
"This first year, I came in and I knew we weren't going to put in the time and dedication that it takes to really have a first year that really just blew everyone away. This is probably the most I've ever had on my plate, and that's saying a lot," Pastrana said. "I was hoping that we'd have some really good finishes [in the K&N Series] by now, but the bottom line is this is my learning year. ... We signed the contract knowing this year was going to be a tough one. We knew we weren't going to get all the time testing and everything else. But at the same time, I'm gaining valuable experience.
"I didn't want to waste this whole year. Now we can go into next year saying, 'OK, what is our starting point? What do we have to do and how can we make next year more successful? How can we keep making progress every race?' And if I learned something in every race, that's a gain for me."
Pastrana admitted he "thrives on the chaos" that essentially is his life. He also said that even though he's often "under-prepared and over-scheduled," he believes he frequently thrives in such situations when he's "kind of behind the eight ball." And just because he's getting married, don't expect him to slow down. His fiancé is no stranger to his crazy lifestyle.
"She's an X Games gold medalist in skateboard," he said. "She goes on the live tours with us and it's awesome because there are very few girls out there who understand the schedules and understand the stresses. I've been very tired and ornery lately and she's been awesome, just really understanding what it takes to get to the top of the sports that we've been to the top of.
"Maybe we should have just eloped in Las Vegas and been done with it. ... But I gave the ring and asked her the question. She said yes, so now pretty much the rest of planning the wedding is up to her."
Obviously, her husband-to-be is going to be a little busy in the months leading up to it -- and likely in the years beyond, as well.

JimiJo says he "raced Kurt with respect and didn't get it back".

I remember it differently - They have had a history of run ins:

July 2011:
Kurt Busch executed a bump-and-run in Turn 4 to knock Johnson out of the lead.

Normally a mild-mannered fellow who is largely respectful of his peers, but gives as good as he gets when it’s called for, Johnson had no doubt what he was going to do once he caught up to Busch’s rear bumper.

“I was going to wreck his [expletive],’’ Johnson said at the time.

Normally a mild-mannered fellow who is largely respectful of his peers, but gives as good as he gets when it’s called for, Johnson had no doubt what he was going to do once he caught up to Busch’s rear bumper.

IndyCar rookie Pippa Mann hospitalized after crash

LOUDON, N.H. - IndyCar rookie Pippa Mann hit the wall during a practice run for Sunday's 225-mile race and was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

She was awake and alert after being helped out of her car and walking slowly toward a stretcher Saturday.

Mann was transported by ambulance to Concord Hospital. There was no official word on whether she would compete Sunday at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway. She had planned to make her debut for Rahal Letterman racing.

Her car also spun on two practice runs Thursday and made contact with the tire wall in Turn 2 on the second run.

Mann finished 20th in the Indianapolis 500 for Conquest racing. It was her only other IndyCar race this year.

Excerpt: Tim Richmond; 22 Years Later and Still Not Forgotten
Published on August 12, 2011 by Sal Sigala Jr.

Every 10-30 years, a young driver comes along who shakes up the NASCAR world, and more time than naught, it’s usually these types of drivers that come into the sport with some kind of a racing background.

Richmond had a “take no prisoners” type of driving style which showed in the way he handled the road courses.

During his eight years as a Winston Cup driver which didn’t start until the age of 21, Richmond visited victory lane 13 times, along with 78 top-10 finishes in the 185 starts hr made in the series. Richmond collected a career-high seven wins in 1986 while driving the No. 25 Folgers-sponsored Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet Monte Carlo, to go along with his 14 careers poles, and his very first victory coming on a road course in Riverside, California.

The 1986 season would be his best year driving in the Winston Cup series, finishing third in points behind eventual cup winner Dale Earnhardt Sr.

Richmond’s life was loosely portrayed in the movie Days of Thunder by the character of Cole Trickle, and aside from stock cars he also competed in open wheel racing finishing ninth in the 1980 Indianapolis 500.


NASCAR to this day has not apologized for the brash and disrespectful way that Richmond was treated. In 1990, The New York Times reported that Dr. Forest Tennant, who was at that time the National Football League’s drug adviser, “falsified drug tests” that ultimately helped shorten Richmond’s NASCAR career.

Washington television station WJLA-TV, in early 1990, reported the sealed court documents and interviews showed Tennant and NASCAR, “allegedly used false drug-test results in 1988 to bar Richmond from racing.”

Richmond was one of their own, even though he didn’t fit the mold that NASCAR wants all of their drivers to follow, even though he was still a human being, breathing the same air as them, and also bringing money into their prestigious racing empire. Richmond would be inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2002, an award that not even the France family could ever take from him.

NASCAR would put the final nail in his coffin by only writing one line about him, and not including a single picture of him anywhere in the annals of NASCAR history. For those who chose to support and follow his career…Tim Richmond has been dearly missed, maybe not so much by NASCAR, but by the fans and drivers who stood next to him through thick and thin.

22 years ago we lost one of our own, but even today he is still in the hearts and minds of those who remember the impact he made to the sport, both on and off the track.

Steve Wallace Gets Hair Pulled After Montreal Crash

Patrick Carpentier, who announced he would retire after the NAPA Auto Parts 200, saw his 27-year racing career come to a bitter ending after contact with Steve Wallace on lap 56 in one of the hairpins.

“I guess Steve Wallace hasn’t learned how to brake, so he spun me at the hairpin,” Carpentier said. “After that, I just lost it, ran people over and they ran me over back. It’s one on those deals.”

After the race, Carpentier’s crew chief, Jerry Baxter, took out his frustration with Wallace by reaching into Wallace’s car on pit road and pulling his hair.
“We had a couple of challenging moments where me and Carpentier were racing really hard,” Wallace said. “I got underneath him, I tried to outbrake him. He crowded me. I got loose, and I spun him out.

“Obviously Baxter was upset. I’d be upset, too … [but] only girls pull hair.”

Remember when Goodyear sent in the same tires as they used the year before, when the rubber on the tire was shredding and coming off?

I should have taken Irene seriously. The south have a lot more experience with hurricanes.
I didn't think I would be in the projected path of a direct hit. I've never experienced a hurricane of this scale.


Millions May Lose Power as Irene Carves Destructive Path

The outages may dwarf those caused by U.S. Gulf Coast Hurricanes Ike, Rita and Katrina because of the storm’s path through residential areas...

Power companies as far west as Kansas, Texas and Oklahoma are organizing repair workers to send east to help with repairing the damage

“Everybody across the United States is on alert,” he said.

Full restoration of power “could take between one and three weeks,”

Many of New York’s electric transformers and substations are located underground, putting them at risk of flooding from Irene’s rains and tidal surge
