Gateway International Raceway was abuzz with excitement this weekend as it hosted the Missouri-Illinois Dodge Dealers 250 NASCAR Nationwide Series on Saturday night. The contenders for the winnerâ€™s trophy were fierce, but in the end it was Carl Edwards who managed to cross the finish line first.
The Daytona International Speedway has a bit of a reputation for being a tough course, but no one could have predicted the drama that unfolded at the race track this weekend. With cars crashing and spinning on virtually every corner, the race was more about how well you avoided collisions than it was about fastest lap times.
He hasnâ€™t had the best of luck in this Sprint Cup Season, but Tony Stewart has just managed to pick up his fifth Nationwide Series victory for the year. It was a long, hard slog to the finish line, however, and it took quite a bit of work to be first to cross the finish line.
The Old Spice Prelude to the Dream racing event is hosted by the Eldora Speedway, which is owned by Tony Stewart. It is an event which sees twenty-five of the worldâ€™s greatest drivers donating their time and skill for the charities that the Old Spice Prelude to the Dream raises funds, and to take on their racing counterparts in a day of fun and excitement. Here, spectators can see their favorite drivers take on the dirt track in late model stock cars. But do not be fooled, these old cars can put out more than eight hundred horsepower, and ensure that the racing is as thrilling and exciting to take part in as it is to watch.
The Sprint All-Star Race was first held in 1985 at the Loweâ€™s Motor Speedway. Previously known as the Charlotte Motor Speedway, the race has been held there every year, with the exclusion of 1986, and is the most anticipated event of the racing season. It is a race like no other, as no points are given and who ever makes it across the finish line first is the winner of approximately $1million. Drivers take more chances, and battles between drivers that lead to crashes are a common sight. It is a racing event filled with adrenalin, thrills and excitement.
