George Gillett Enters Partnership with the Saudi Royal Family
NASCAR Examiner is reporting that George Gillett, currently the majority owner of Richard Petty Motorsports, has entered into what is being called an “exclusive commercial collaboration” with a member of the Saudi Royal Family. This collaboration will see Gillett’s stake in the race team, along with part of his stake in Liverpool FC, transferred to F6, a sports investment group that is chaired by Prince Faisal bin Fahd bin Abdullah al-Saud. This deal is worth upwards of $560 million.
As a result of this deal, there will eventually be Liverpool FC football academies and Richard Petty Driving Experiences built in the Middle East.
“The Middle East sport market has immense growth potential as eager fans in the region demand access to more diverse, higher caliber competition. I am delighted, enthusiastic, and honored to have the opportunity to partner with such a visionary in His Highness Prince Faisal,” Gillett said.
His Highness is also pleased with the developments.
“George Gillett is at the helm of some of the most powerful and celebrated sports brands in the world,” Prince Faisal said on Tuesday. “F6 is energized about the strategic partnership with his groups and seeks to lead the way with our investment partners in identifying the brands, personalities, facilities, and media that will catalyze the evolution of sporting experiences in the Kingdom and beyond, thereby introducing thousands of quality employment opportunities within Saudi Arabia.”
Soccer is already very popular in the Middle Eastern countries, but stock car racing is new to the region. In 2007, a series known as the Speedcar Series raced cars eligible for the Pro Cup Series on road courses in the Middle East like Bahrain International Circuit and the Dubai Autodrome. The drivers were mainly former Formula One racers including Jean Alesi, Gianni Morbidelli, Ukyo Katayama, Narain Karthikeyan, alongside a few Middle Eastern drivers.
In its two seasons of operation, the Speedcar Series was relatively popular. Unfortunately, the recent financial crisis resulted in the original backer of the series, Union Holdings, withdrawing support. The series folded in June due to lack of capital.
Gilliland to Drive No. 02 Toyota for JGR, Three Race Deal
On Tuesday, Joe Gibbs Racing officially announced that David Gilliland will drive the No. 02 Farm Bureau Insurance Toyota in three Sprint Cup races; the NASCAR Banking by Bank of America 500 at Lowe’s Motor Speedway on October 17, the Dickies 500 at Texas Motor Speedway on November 8, and the season finale Ford 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway on November 22.
This move comes from a six race sponsorship deal that Joe Gibbs Racing signed with Farm Bureau earlier this year to sponsor the No. 11 of Denny Hamlin for two races, the No. 20 of Joey Logano for one race (Logano’s one race with Farm Bureau colors will be at Martinsville on October 25), and a fourth Gibbs car for three races.
“Farm Bureau Insurance is an outstanding partner with us and we think David and Wally [Brown] will represent them well in these three races,” said JGR President J.D. Gibbs said in a press release. “Denny did a good job for them earlier this year and we’re confident Joey will give them a good run in Martinsville as well. We want to make sure we provide their agents, members and customers a program they can be proud of.”
The No. 02 is essentially Joe Gibbs Racing’s test team, and the test team’s crew chief, Wally Brown, will serve as Gilliland’s in his three races

Blickensderfer Best Dover Crew Chief
Drew Blickensderfer, crew chief for the No. 17 DEWALT Ford driven by Matt Kenseth, has been named the WYPALL Wipers Crew Chief of the Race following Sunday’s AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway. Fast pit work was the key to success for Kenseth and the No. 17 team, which finished third. Kenseth started the race 23rd but quickly moved up to the front of the field. A 13-second stop by the Blickensderfer-led team on lap 165 gained the team two positions, restarting ninth when the field went green three laps later. Following another quick and successful pit stop on lap 270, Kenseth restarted sixth and fought his way into the top five where he remained for the rest of the race. Blickensderfer coached his driver with confidence as he battled with lead contenders Jimmie Johnson and Mark Martin.
Johnson Named Driver Of Decade
In the most recent issue of Sporting News magazine, SN named seven athletes of the decade — one in each sport it covers. The winner in NASCAR is three-time defending Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson, who gets the nod over two-time champion Tony Stewart. Johnson picked up his 44th Cup Series win Sunday at Dover, tying him with Bill Elliott for 14th on the all-time list. Johnson’s 44th win — all this decade — came in his 283rd start, giving him a winning percentage of 15.6, eighth-best all time and third best in NASCAR’s modern era (since 1972). It is easily the best of the decade: Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart are tied for second at 9.4 percent.
Atlanta Reduces Ticket Prices
As Atlanta Motor Speedway prepares for its 50th Anniversary celebration in 2010, the Speedway has announced tickets are on sale for the March 5-7 Kobalt Tools 500 weekend. The Kobalt Tools 500 will feature reduced pricing on a number of the Speedway’s seats, including the Petty, Winners, Champion and Upper Earnhardt Grandstands located along the track’s frontstretch. In addition, Atlanta Motor Speedway will provide fans with a four-installment payment option to purchase tickets for the Kobalt Tools 500. Fans can reserve tickets by putting just 25 percent of their total ticket cost down up front, and can pay the remaining balance in equal, consecutive-monthly payments.

Kahne using R5 Engine at Kansas…and beyond? #9-Kasey Kahne, Teleconference Transcript (in part) from September 29, 2009:
Q: What engine will you run this weekend at Kansas?
Kahne: I’m using the R5 again this weekend, the same as what we had last week.
Q: Do you anticipate going back to the R6?
Kahne: I think it will be all about reliability. If they think they can get it back where it’s really reliable like the R5, then I would think we would probably go back to it. What I told them was that we have some points to make up and if we have anymore issues where we fall outside of the top 35, we’re screwed&we have no chance. The very little power that you gain with the R6, it’s not nearly enough power for me to say let’s take a chance. We definitely want it to be reliable. Maybe we’re down a couple horsepower, but that’s it. At the end of the day it’s not a big deal.(Dodge Motorsports NASCAR PR )(9-30-2009)
Chevy Close To Manufacturers’ Title: Depending on the outcome of Sunday’s Price Chopper 400, Chevrolet could clinch the 2009 manufacturers’ title this weekend at Kansas Speedway. If so, it would be the 33rd such title for Chevrolet and the seventh consecutive one. The manufacturers’ championship debuted in 1950.
What’s necessary for Chevrolet to clinch: Chevy’s top-finishing driver on Sunday must finish ahead of Toyota’s top-finishing driver (NASCAR).
Martin brings ‘hot’ car to Kansas: #5-Mark Martin’s crew chief Alan Gustafson, has chosen Chassis No. 5-527 for this Sunday’s race at Kansas Speedway. This is the same chassis Martin drove to Victory Lane at Darlington Raceway in May and Chicagoland Speedway in July. Martin most recently raced the car to a fifth-place finish at Atlanta Motor Speedway in September.(HMS)(9-30-2009)
Different look for Ragan’s #6 at Kansas: For the second and final time this season, UPS Freight will be featured on the #6 Ford that David Ragan drives. Ragan ran the same design earlier this season at Richmond im May. The Wichita North Center (SLIC – 6720) in the Kansas District was selected as the UPS Maximum Center featured on David’s car at Kansas Speedway. The center’s 6720 SLIC number will be featured on the wing of the #6 UPS Freight Ford.(RFR), see images of the scheme on my #6 Team Schemes page.(9-30-2009)
More on Kevin Hamlin’s Cup debut: Kevin Hamlin will attempt to qualify for his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Kansas Speedway in the Front Row Motorsports #37 Long John Silver’s Dodge. Bob Jenkins, owner of the Front Row Motorsports entry, has given the thirty year old driver his first opportunity to compete in motorsport’s top series for Sunday’s Price Chopper 400. The #37 Dodge Avenger is currently in 45th in owner points. Hamlin must qualify the Long John Silver’s Dodge in on time to make the race. “For Mr. Jenkins to give me this opportunity is a dream come true. Front Row Motorsports has made huge strides this year with the dedication that Jerry Freeze and the entire Front Row team has put towards it, and hopefully we can get the car in the show. I look forward to working with Peter (Sospenzo) and appreciate the confidence he has in me. I like Kansas, it’s where I got my first truck start in 2005,” noted Hamlin. He has two previous starts at Kansas Speedway, both in 2005, in the Craftsman Truck Series and the Nationwide Series.
Crew Chief Peter Sospenzo is looking forward to working with Hamlin at Kansas and California, “We’re real excited about Kevin being in the car for Kansas and California. We have to qualify in to race, but Kevin can do it. He has experience in a truck and Nationwide car at Kansas, and his experience testing in the Cup car will really be beneficial for his first time in a Cup race. Kevin’s a young guy with a lot of enthusiasm and he has a great attitude.” Hamlin is no stranger to Front Row Motorsports, he can be found during most Sprint Cup races spotting for FRM’s John Andretti. Hamlin has also practiced and qualified the team’s Nationwide Series entry driven by Tony Raines on non-companion race weekends when Raines had conflicts traveling between a Sprint Cup and Nationwide track. During the week Hamlin is a test driver for Earnhardt Ganassi Racing, putting in laps on various tracks and straight line testing for the team’s Sprint Cup program. Hamlin was heavily involved in testing during the development of the Car of Tomorrow.(Rising Star Management)(9-30-2009)
Office Depot, Stewart Team up to donate backpacks: Office Depot and #14-Tony Stewart are joining the Office Depot Foundation on Wednesday to donate more than 2,200 backpacks to Kansas City-area nonprofit organizations and schools. “Back-To-School Backpack Celebration,” happens at 4:00pm at the Office Depot store at 4851 North Oak Traffic Way in Kansas City.

NASCAR Video Recaps at Auto Dealers: The Automotive Broadcasting Network (ABN), auto retailing’s first private television network fueled by CBS, announced that the company has entered an agreement with NASCAR Media Group to deliver weekly NASCAR racing video recaps to Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford and Toyota dealer-customers across the county. The two-minute videos, produced by NASCAR Media Group and seen in dealer showrooms, will feature results and updates from NASCAR’s three national series: the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, the NASCAR Nationwide Series, and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.(Business Wire)(9-30-2009)
K-State solar car to be on display at Kansas Speedway: Members of Kansas State University’s solar car team will be displaying their car, Paragon, at two locations in the Kansas City area: at the Kansas Speedway Friday, Oct. 2; and at Arrowhead Stadium Saturday, Oct. 3, for the K-State football game against Iowa State University. The Kansas City Catbackers helped arrange the solar car’s display in conjunction with the K-State football game at Arrowhead and NASCAR events at the Kansas Speedway. The K-State solar car team has been building and racing solar cars since 1995. Paragon was built by the team in 2005 for the North American Solar Challenge. Members of the team are primarily K-State students in electrical and mechanical engineering, but all disciplines are welcome on the team. The cars take about two years to design and build and are built for cross-country endurance races rather than racing at tracks like the Kansas Speedway. It will be the first time the K-State team has shown the solar car at a NASCAR event.(Reflector-Chronicle)(6-30-2009)
NASCAR, teams consider streamlining licensing business: NASCAR and the sport’s top teams are discussing ways to rescue their troubled licensing business by bringing all of the team and driver rights under one banner, marking the first major step toward creating NASCAR Properties. Those rights currently are splintered from team to team, which means a licensee might visit five teams to acquire five licenses. A centralized agency such as NASCAR Properties would make all of those licenses available from one entity like the other professional leagues do. The groundwork for NASCAR Properties was set Sept. 24 during a day-long meeting at the governing body’s new office in Charlotte. Paul Brooks, NASCAR’s senior vice president and a driving force behind the idea, said officials from his office have been meeting with teams individually since the summer, but the summit at NASCAR’s office brought all of those executives together for the first time. “We are exploring the potential benefits of a unified industry approach to licensing,” Brooks said. “The ongoing dialogue with all stakeholders has been very positive and collaborative, and that is truly encouraging.”(in part from Sporting News NASCAR Wire Service/SportsBusiness Journal)(9-30-2009)

Gillett, RPM partnering with Saudi Prince UPDATE: In what could turn out to be one of the oddest pairings in the history of American stock car racing, Richard Petty Motorsports’ primary shareholder George Gillett Tuesday signed an ‘exclusive commercial collaboration’ agreement for his stake in the team to Prince Faisal bin Fahd bin Abdullah al-Saud, a member of the Saudi Royal Family. The agreement signed Tuesday forms a partnership that will see the development of a NASCAR racing circuit and Richard Petty racing schools in the Saudi Kingdom and elsewhere in the Middle East. “The Middle East sport market has immense growth potential as eager fans in the region demand access to more diverse, higher caliber competition. I am delighted, enthusiastic, and honored to have the opportunity to partner with such a visionary in His Highness Prince Faisal,” said Gillett after the signing. According to many however, the agreement signed Tuesday is the first step to Gillett selling his stake in the team. As the two were publicly confirming the agreement, behind the scenes, Gillett and Prince Faisal acting on behalf of the Saudi sports investment group F6 he chairs, have begun a process of ‘due diligence’, the examination of financial records, with the goal being that Gillett would be bought out by the end of the year. The primary deal in the works actually centers on British football club Liverpool that Gillett owns a 50% stake in, but the deal would also include Richard Petty Motorsports. The Prince was at Anfield Stadium in England on Saturday as a guest Gillett, who confirmed that he has secured funding from the Saudi prince for his NASCAR team and an agreement to build Liverpool-branded football academies in the Middle East. The entire deal is reportedly worth up to $560 million.(NASCAR Examiner)
UPDATE Foster Gillett has confirmed there are no major ownership changes contemplated at Richard Petty Motorsports. The Gilletts are the majority owners of Richard Petty Motorsports and plan on being so for a long time.(RPM)(9-29-2009)
Sporting News’ NASCAR Athlete of the Decade: the Sporting News choices for seven athletes of the decade–one in each sport they cover–sparked some intense debate. Three consecutive Cup championships form a pretty good basis for arguing Jimmie Johnson over two-time champ Tony Stewart. The results:
Athlete of the decade: Jimmie Johnson over Tony Stewart
Crew chief of the decade: Chad Knaus
Team of the decade: Hendrick Motorsports
Race of the decade: 2001 Daytona 500, won by Michael Waltrip.(Sporting News)(9-29-2009)
Dover victory means over $29k to Red Cross: #48-Jimmie Johnson and American Le Mans Series drivers Adrian Fernandez and Luis Diaz Raced for Relief this weekend, and as a result of their efforts, Lowe’s donated $29,295, including $4,800 for Johnson’s victory finish, to benefit the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, which helps people affected by disasters like the floods in Georgia. Johnson completed 400 laps during his victory at Dover, Del. Sunday while Fernandez and Diaz raced for 353 miles in their race at Road Atlanta on Saturday. The $29,295 is in addition to the $250,000 Lowe’s donated to the American Red Cross last week. Lowe’s stores across Georgia continue to serve as official cash donation sites for the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. Funds raised will help to provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance to victims of disasters like the recent floods. Donations to the American Red Cross may be made at participating Lowe’s stores, online at www.redcross.org, or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767).(Lowe’s PR)(9-29-2009)

Lofton Looks to Kansas in Championship Quest
KANSAS CITY KS (9-30-09) – Despite the off week, Justin Lofton was unable to escape his racing reality.

With two races remaining, Lofton is on the verge of possibly scoring his first stock car championship.
“The off week was nice; I went home to California and caught up with my family and friends,” said Lofton, who won the last race at Salem Speedway.
