Budweiser (Kevin Harvick) brewer to buy Miller (Brad Keselowksi) owner in $106 billion deal

The world’s top two beer makers agreed Tuesday to join forces to create a company that would control nearly a third of the global market and bring together top U.S. brands Budweiser and Miller Genuine Draft. After turning down five offers, British-based brewer SABMiller accepted in principle an improved takeover bid worth $106 billion from Anheuser Busch InBev, which along with Budweiser makes Corona, Stella Artois and Beck's. However, the sheer scale of the deal is likely to run into resistance from regulators, notably in the U.S. and China, amid concerns it could stifle competition and decrease
choice for consumers. They could force the companies to sell some brands — such as either the Budweiser or Miller brands. (Boston Globe)

Iron Cassill Irons Out Great Finishes! - Landon Cassill's 2015 So Far

Despite competing for the NASCAR Xfinity Series Championship for JD Motorsports Landon Cassill has had a very impressive year behind the wheel of the #40 Chevrolet SS for Hillman Racing. They have been up there with the #51 of Justin Algaier and the #47 of AJ Almindinger, The upper Tier Underfunded teams, and despite #40 car being blank in some races of 2015 they have still been very competitive. Below is summing up how 2015 has been for the #40 car!
At Daytona The #40 team was looking to continue their momentum off of 2015, Top 5 at Talladega in October and 2 top 15's once at Talladega in May and another at Daytona in February. Also leading 12 laps. As they entered the Budweiser Duels, they started 23rd, First Duel was where many of the Go or Go Homers would race in. Throughout 125 miles Landon worked his way through the pack. At the last lap Landon along with Michael McDowell worked there way into the Daytona 500. Landon would
finish 9th and McDowell would finish 12th. The High Blood Pressure and Sleepless Nights would go away as Landon would start 17th in The Daytona 500.
On February 22nd Landon Cassill and the #40 Carsforsale.com Chevrolet would look to run 500 miles around Daytona International Speedway. Belts pulled tight, steering wheel ready to roll, The Green Flag flew and Landon was going to run 200 laps around Daytona. On Lap 18 That plan went sour just like the engine. Landon would finish a disappointing 43rd. Atlanta would be about the same result. Engine failure once again. The 40 team would finish
43rd in the first 2 races which would set a NASCAR Record.
With a best finish of 22nd at Phoenix from Daytona to Fort Worth. Bristol would be yet another hard hit for Landon. While racing with the Leader, Kyle Larson at the time, Landon was sent straight into the outside wall uninjured but yet another disappointing 43rd.
The first half of the season was disappointing for Landon. After the Coke 600 at Charlotte Landon ran from the Charlotte Motor Speedway to the
NASCAR Hall Of Fame. A 13.70 Mile Trek after already racing 600 miles in the Coca-Cola 600. Completing the Memorial Day Double. Thats when I gave Landon Cassill the nickname of Iron Cassill.
Daytona Came and Landon Cassill would look to rebound his 43rd place finish in February. Guess what he did. Much TV Time for him and the #40 Snap Fitness Patriotic Chevrolet SS. He was in the midst of winning the race until falling back still managing to finish 13th despite the scary crash involving Austin Dillon. During the race I put on twitter that if Landon Cassill won the Coke Zero 400 at 4 a.m that he would run to the nearest beach to catch the Sun Rise.
After Daytona its like something finally clicked for the #40 team. A 28th and 26th at Kentucky and Indianapolis. Pocono was very successful, The team had a blank race car start 29th and run all the way up to 14th.
At Darlington Snap Fitness and Hillman Racing teamed up to run a Throwback Scheme from 2001. The same paint scheme Sterling Marlin raced after the September 11th Terrorist Attacks. Landon raced that car to an Impressive Top 20 place finish.
From Chicago to Charlotte Landon had Top 30 place finishes and 1 DNF making up for the ones at the beginning of the season!  Since Daytona the Team has had 8 Top 30 place finishes and 1 DNF at Dover after another engine failure.
Talladega is coming Next Week so be looking for this team to Rise Above The Golden Rings and pull their first Top 5 of 2015! (Koelle, 2015)
