Ryan Ellis To Make NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Debut at Phoenix

Ryan Ellis announced via Social Media that he would be making his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Debut next weekend at Phoenix for Circle Sport Racing driving the #33 Science Logic Chevrolet SS. Ryan has made 29 starts in the NASCAR Xfinity Series with his best finish coming at Watkins Glen earlier this year in 22nd place. He also has made 20 starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series with his best finish of a 16th earlier this year at the season opener at Daytona. Ryan has drove for numerous race teams over the last few years with names like Means and Ware as team owners Ryan has
tons of experience and I look for him to be successful behind the wheel in Phoenix and I look to many more opportunities to come his direction after!
The #33 Team has had a stellar year with Brian Scott, Alex Kennedy, and a couple others with Alex running for the 2015 Rookie Of The Year. Look for this team who is hooked up with Hillman Racing to succeed in the near future!
Ryan is also a friend of mine as I helped try to find him sponsorship earlier this year for Bristol. While in Bristol I had the opportunity to meet Ryan and by his personality and talent it makes me wonder why he's not in bigger rides with bigger sponsorship's! We here at The NASCAR News Source wish Ryan the best in his debut and we certainly hope I'll have good things to write about the #33 team next weekend! (Koelle, 2015)

Next Weekend

Eddie Gossage sure has a storyline on his end as NASCAR heads to The Lonestar State. Jimmie Johnson won here last year in the fall and here in May can Jimmie Outlaw another Texas Victory? Joey Logano is going into Texas but don't forget he's won here before. Can Joey Deliver the Captain another Cowboy hat or will the boxing gloves come off again like last season? 

Joey Logano Flirting With History Today

Joey Logano could join an exclusive NASCAR club by winning today's Goody's Headache Shots 500 at Martinsville Speedway. Joey has won the last 3 races and looks to continue his dominance going into the eliminator eight.
Only 9 drivers have won 4 races in a row in their career and that list of drivers include Hall Of Famers and Future Hall Of Famers. Richard Petty was the first driver to do it in 1967. Cale Yarborough (1976), Darrell Waltrip (1981), Dale Earnhardt (1987), Harry Gant (1991), Bill Elliott
(1992), Mark Martin (1993), Jeff Gordon (1998) and Jimmie Johnson (2007), have all won four races in a row.
If Joey Logano could win his fourth race in a row he not only will join exclusive groups he will also lock himself into the Championship race at Homestead! In Joey's next victory he will move into a section with Ernie Irvan with 15 wins. 2 More wins and he will tie with his teammate Brad Keselowski with 17 wins. Joey is truly chasing history today so we will see if history can be rewrote with Joey not only winning tomorrow but also at Texas giving him 5 consecutive wins which is something that has
been unheard of in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series since Richard Petty did so in 1971 when he won 5 in a row!(Koelle,2015)
