Mark Donohue Tribute at Watkins Glen: The weekend of April 25-26, 2009, Watkins Glen International and the International Motor Racing Research Center will join forces to present a Mark Donohue Tribute. The weekend will include the launch of Michael Argetsinger’s new book on Mark.

Details of the weekend remain in the planning stage but activities will include an opportunity to drive the 3.4-mile Watkins Glen circuit in your own car. A dedicated session will provide for ex-Donohue race cars to have the track to themselves. Several outstanding cars have already committed to be there. There will also be discussion sessions with key people in Mark’s life presenting their memories and stories. We will provide more details as they become available but, for now, be sure to plan for this unique event. More info available at www.UnfairAdvantageRacing.com and theglen.com.(4-21-2009)

Racing Resources Says …Sprint Cup Series
* Mark Martin won the Subway Fresh Fit 500 at Phoenix International Raceway after starting from the pole. His victory was the fifth straight win by Hendrick Motorsports at Phoenix. Martin led five times for 157 laps, including the final six.
* Martin scored his 400th top-10 finish and became the fourth driver in NASCAR history to score 400 or more top-10 finishes. He scored his second victory in 25 races at Phoenix and is the oldest driver to win at Phoenix at 50 years, three months and nine days. Martin is just the fourth driver to win over the age of 50, joining Harry Gant, Bobby Allison and Morgan Shepherd. Shepherd was the last driver over 50 to score a victory, doing so at Atlanta in March 1993.
* Martin is the 15th different driver to win for Hendrick Motorsports, and is the ninth driver to win in the #5 car, which has won 35 times.
* This was Martin’s 36th career victory in 730 races and he remained 18th on NASCAR’s all-time wins list.
* This was Martin’s first victory with Hendrick Motorsports and first with an owner other than Jack Roush. It was his first victory with crew chief Alan Gustafson. This is the 178th victory for Hendrick Motorsports; third in 2009 and third straight (Jimmie Johnson won at Martinsville, Jeff Gordon won at Texas).
* Tony Stewart finished second, posting his sixth top-10 finish in 2009. It marked his best finish of the season and best with his new team.
* This is the third victory for Chevrolet in 2009, all in the last three races.
* Gordon leads the points standings, by 85 over second-place Johnson.
* Kurt Busch, third, posted his fifth top-10 finish in 2009.
* Jimmie Johnson, fourth, scored his sixth top-10 of 2009 and fourth consecutive top-4 finish.
* Sam Hornish Jr. (ninth) scored his career-best finish.
* Clint Bowyer (26th) extended an 81-race streak of running at the finish that began at Homestead in November 2006. Bowyer’s last DNF came at Phoenix on Nov. 12, 2006, where he finished 33rd because of an oil pump failure. This ties him for the most consecutive races running at the finish with Kevin Harvick. Herman Beam had a streak of 84 races in which he competed without a DNF, but those races were not consecutive.
* The top 10 consisted of four Chevrolets, two Toyotas, two Dodges and two Fords.(ESPN Monday Rundown)(4-20-2009)
Darlington walls go retro for Southern 500: When spectators and competitors arrive at Darlington Raceway for the May 9th Southern 500 presented by GoDaddy.com everyone will notice one distinct difference – red and white retaining walls surrounding the track “Too Tough to Tame.” “Giving the most famous walls on the NASCAR circuit a retro facelift seemed very fitting as part of our 60th celebration,” said track President, Chris Browning. “This is the first time since 1989 that the walls have been painted anything but white and it certainly reminds me of the early days of NASCAR racing.” The walls are painted in 40-foot sections alternating red and white and took nearly 50 hours and 315 gallons of paint to complete. In addition to the red and white paint scheme, a retro font was used for the Darlington Raceway signage at the start/finish line. Tickets to the 2009 Southern 500 presented by GoDaddy.com, as well as the NASCAR Nationwide Series Diamond Hill Plywood 200 are on-sale now. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Darlington Raceway ticket office at 866-459-RACE or online at www.darlingtonraceway.com/tickets/.(Darlington Raceway PR)(4-20-2009)

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series
Mark Martin got his third pole of the season with a 133.814 mph lap Friday at Phoenix. Saturday, he led 78 of the opening 79 laps. The first yellow came for Sterling Marlin’s spin, and Martin got out of the pits first. Dale Earnhardt Jr. had to make an extra stop because of loose lug nuts and dropped to the back for the restart. On the second caution, for debris, Kurt Busch got out of the pits ahead of Martin’s Chevrolet. David Stremme spun on lap 138 and Jimmie Johnson lost nine spots in the pits as a lug nut fell off. Jeff Gordon banged with Denny Hamlin and had to pit to fix his left-front fender. Gordon also had an extra stop later due to a missing lug nut. Michael Waltrip bumped Robby Gordon into the wall. Earnhardt Jr., out of pit sequence, became the leader. Later, Tony Stewart led, then Martin got around. His lead over Stewart went away when Earnhardt wrecked on lap 302 of 312. Ryan Newman stayed out while others pitted, but Martin quickly repassed him. Martin, whose last victory was in 2005 and 97 races ago, finished .734 second ahead of Stewart. Busch was third, followed by Johnson and Greg Biffle. Martin averaged 108.042 mph with six yellows for 29 laps. It was the fifth consecutive win at Phoenix by Hendrick Motorsports. Other over-50 drivers to win in Cup include Harry Gant, Bobby Allison and Morgan Shepherd. Gordon (25th) leads Johnson by 85 points.

Benny Gordon’s Appeal Denied: On April 20, 2009, the National Stock Car Racing Commission heard and considered the appeal of Benny Gordon Racing regarding the #72 NASCAR Nationwide Series car. The appeal concerned three penalties issued by NASCAR stemming from pre-qualifying inspection on March 21, 2009 for the NASCAR Nationwide Series event at Bristol Motor Speedway. The Appellants requested and were granted a deferral of the fine and suspension penalties until such time as this hearing could be convened. The Appellants argued that sometime prior to the Event they had purchased a supply of Sunoco fuel for testing purposes from a third-party vendor which, unbeknownst to them, contained oxygenates. Fuel from this supply was then re-introduced into the racecar at Bristol when they “topped off” the car using a dumpcan from their hauler just prior to qualifying. The Commission found that the fuel did not meet specifications and that the penalties already factored in any mitigating circumstances. Therefore, it is the unanimous decision of the National Stock Car Racing Commission to uphold the original penalties assessed by NASCAR. The periods of suspension shall be adjusted from the date of this hearing. The Appellants have the right under Section 15 of the Rule Book to appeal this decision to the National Stock Car Racing Commissioner.(NASCAR PR)

Key Motorsports discontinues full-time schedule; to run select races: Curtis Key, owner of Key Motorsports, has announced that he has cancelled his team’s full-time championship effort in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, and will pursue only a limited schedule with Mike Bliss behind the wheel for the remainder of the 2009 season. Key cites lack of sponsorship and his desire to focus on the team’s first full-time NASCAR Nationwide Series entry as his reasons for discontinuing the full-time truck program. The #40 Key Motorsports Chevy Silverado will not appear on the entry list [withdrawn] for this weekend’s race at Kansas Speedway, despite Key’s original intention to field a full-time NCWTS entry. The #40 will next hit the track for the North Carolina Education Lottery 200 at Lowe’s Motor Speedway. Bliss will continue to drive the #40 in the remaining races Key Motorsports runs this season. While the team’s schedule for the remainder of the season has not yet been determined, Key plans to run his team for the Charlotte race, as well as seven upcoming races in which he has sponsorship commitments with Westerman Companies and Oakland Metal Buildings.

Coming Off Career-Best Finish at Rockingham, Alli Owens Ramped Up for Talladega
TALLADEGA AL (4-21-09) – In 57 years of ARCA RE/MAX Series competition, no female driver has ever won an ARCA RE/MAX Series race. Shawna Robinson and Erin Crocker got close with second place finishes, but never a victory.
After Alli Owens qualified second at Daytona this year, many thought she just might be the gal to bust down the winner’s circle barrier. But after running second in the early going, the Daytona Beach, Florida driver got caught up in the “big one”. She was okay, but her day was done.
Now fast-forward to this past Sunday afternoon at Rockingham Speedway where the 20-year-old driver finished a career-best 12th in the No. 19 Eddie D’Hondt Motorsports-ElectrifyingCareers.com Toyota.
“The ElectrifyingCareers.com car was really good,” said Owens. “We went a little too far on our first adjustment and our car was too loose on the next run. We lost a little ground because of that, but everything came together for our last run. The (No.) 19 team did a great job today and ended the day with a solid finish.
“I learned a lot today. I learned how to handle the track and how to handle the car. We ran lap times at the end of the race that would have been good enough for a top-five finish.”
Now, with her confidence ramped up, it’s on to Talladega Superspeedway for the ARCA RE/MAX 250 Friday afternoon, April 24.
“Everyone at D’Hondt Motorsports team is stoked about Talladega. We put the ElectrifyingCareers.com car on the front row at Daytona, so we’re really confident about our superspeedway program. Our car for Talladega is just as good, if not better than what we brought to Daytona.
“Talladega (Superspeedway) and Daytona (International Speedway) are both really fast Superspeedways, but that’s about where the similarities end. Daytona seems like the evil stepsister of Talladega. Daytona has a really rough surface and you fight that all race long. Talladega has a silky, smooth surface and you can really feel the speed because you’re not focused on the bumps. It also has great three-wide racing.”
Three-wide racing that’s been known to spawn big-time crashes.
“There’s always a ‘big one’ at Talladega. I don’t think there’s a full proof strategy to avoid it. You’re always in danger of being involved in it, whether you’re in the front or the back. Since it’s been repaved, the track has given everyone so much confidence. The grip is phenomenal and makes drivers think that their cars will do whatever they want them to. It makes them push the envelope a lot further than they normally would and that’s when accidents happen. It’s almost like the drivers are their own worst enemy at Talladega, where as the track is your enemy when you race at Daytona. Last year I tried to ride around in the back and log laps until the end. I ended up getting caught up in a wreck, so I know there are no safe zones.”
The event at Talladega will mark Owens’s 15th career ARCA RE/MAX Series start.
“I know I can win at this level,” said Owens. “I’m with a team that can win in this series. Eddie D’Hondt Motorsports brings the best equipment to the table. I have a lot of quality people behind me who believe in me, who have confidence in me. I really feel like I’m ready to win – that I could be that first female winner.”
Practice for the ARCA RE/MAX 250 at Talladega is scheduled from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM local Central time Thursday, April 23 followed by Menards Pole Qualifying presented by Ansell at 5:05 PM. The 47th ARCA RE/MAX 250 is scheduled to roll off just after 4:00 PM local time Friday afternoon, April 24. The race is LIVE on SPEED at 5:00 PM Eastern.
