Everyone I know is talking about this show. I think it is awesome that NASCAR is doing this.
Bubba Wallace Water Throwing Incident
In one of the least classy moves in NASCAR history. This happened this weekend in Charlotte was Bubba Wallace throwing water on Alex Bowman while he was down on the ground getting medical help. There is nothing awesome about this. I guess Bubba is just fed up from wrecking and not finishing well this year.

What are your thoughts? After I saw Michael Waltrip defend Bubba I was sick to my stomach. There is no excuse that could make me ok with this. The lack of class is the issue. If this was the other way around Bubba would not be happy about it.
"He didn't do anything wrong." @MW55 has @BubbaWallace's back.

To drive for one of the classiest guys on the planet in Richard Petty and do this also shows he has no respect for Petty Motorsports. I wonder what the King has to say about his driver.

Get Up Close With Jeff Gordon in Victory Lane
Yesterdays win was probably one of the most exciting wins in Jeff Gordon’s career. His emotions really showed on tv but thanks to NASCAR we can see a behind the scenes look into the minutes after Jeff pulled into victory lane at Martinsville. What TV didn’t show though was Jeff going into the stands and meeting the die-hard fans that stayed after the lights went out.
Yesterday was a very good day for Jeff and a good day for NASCAR.
Danica Patrick’s New Sponsor Natures Bakery
Nature’s Bakery Begins NASCAR Journey with Danica Patrick
KANNAPOLIS, N.C. (Aug. 18, 2015) – Nature’s Bakery, a rapidly-growing snacks and food brand headquartered in Reno, Nevada, has joined Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) to become the primary sponsor of driver Danica Patrick and the No. 10 team in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series beginning with the 2016 season.
The multiyear sponsorship agreement will see Nature’s Bakery and its signature tagline, “Energy for Life’s Great Journeys”, adorn Patrick’s No. 10 Chevrolet SS for 28 races a year.
Nature’s Bakery was founded in 2010 by the father-and-son duo of Dave and Sam Marson with a mission of making delicious, convenient, on-the-go snacks that complement health-conscious living and active, everyday lifestyles. Their lineage in the food industry can be traced back to the 1960s when Dave’s father, Richard Marson, opened a family bakery. Growing up in the bakery, Dave passed his passion and skills along to his son, Sam, whereupon the two combined their knowledge and entrepreneurial spirit to form Nature’s Bakery.
“Danica Patrick is one of the most fit and health-conscious drivers in all of racing and she embodies the Nature’s Bakery customer,” said Dave Marson, founder of Nature’s Bakery. “We make great products that complement Danica’s lifestyle and the always on-the-go environment in which she competes. Nature’s Bakery provides ‘Energy for Life’s Great Journeys’ and we’re very proud to embark upon this NASCAR journey with Danica and Stewart-Haas Racing.”
“It’s an honor to represent Nature’s Bakery and also a great deal of responsibility,” Patrick said. “They have ambitious goals and they’re going to rely on me and everyone at Stewart-Haas Racing to deliver. I have ambitious goals too. It’s why I came to NASCAR and, specifically, to Stewart-Haas Racing. There’s still a lot I want to achieve in this sport and I’m looking to continue my professional journey with a brand as determined as I am.”
Patrick is motorsports’ most recognizable athlete and the most marketable personality in NASCAR according to Repucom’s 2015 Davie Brown Index. Her success on the racetrack, which includes an IndyCar Series victory and a Daytona 500 pole, transcends her into the mainstream, proven by a 2014 Harris Poll which named Patrick the second-most recognized female athlete in the United States, behind only tennis star Serena Williams.
“All you need to say is ‘Danica’ and people know exactly who you’re talking about,” Dave Marson added. “She has immersed herself and succeeded in a very intense sport and been recognized for her efforts. By offering convenient, easy-to-find and affordable products that people can feel better about eating, we’ve carved a niche for Nature’s Bakery in the fast-growing, packaged snack-food industry. With our partnership with Danica and Stewart-Haas Racing, we’re able to take that niche mainstream.”
“Danica has proven she belongs in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and we’re very happy to have her a part of our team for years to come,” said Tony Stewart, co-owner of Stewart-Haas Racing with Gene Haas, founder of Haas Automation, the largest CNC machine tool builder in North America. “Nature’s Bakery is a natural fit with Danica. She has played an important role in the growth of all the businesses associated with her and our growth as a race team. Our partnership with Nature’s Bakery is all about growing their business. In Danica, we have the best possible person to help Nature’s Bakery achieve its goals.”
