Rick Ware Racing Promoting BeHero2Hero.com

In Atlanta on Saturday during the Xfinity Series Race you may have seen a certain paint scheme we have seen on cars with drivers ranging from Michael McDowell to Blake Koch. Cody Shane Ware was behind the wheel of the #15 BeHero2Hero.com presented by X-Aviation Chevrolet Camaro on Saturday in the Heads Up Georgia 250. Dell Hamilton has been in NASCAR for many years including being half an owner of Hamilton Means Racing. Dell is one of the founders of the Support Millitary Organization based out of Chattanooga Tennessee. Now with a new campaign to broaden the horizon Dell makes his return to NASCAR with Rick Ware Racing. The car you see to the right will be seen on track at many of the upcoming NASCAR Xfinity Series Races and their is a meaning behind it. Everyone of these heroes who have served for our country needs a hero. These Heroes need a friend or a person who can be there for them whenever they need someone to talk to or maybe they just need a buddy to help welcome them back to the United States. A person who will go fishing with them or take them to a NASCAR Race to help them feel more at home. You can help by pledging your help to BeHero2Hero. When it comes to the United States of America we have the Greatest Military in any place on earth. We the people of the United States of America need to help these members of the military feel more at home. We the people need to be there for them. You can help by pledging at www.BeHero2Hero.com. We want to send a Shout Out to Rick Ware Racing for helping promote this great organization!

Jimmie Johnson Ties Dale Earnhardt Sr. on Wins List with Win at Atlanta

Jimmie Johnson wins his 76th race at Atlanta tying him with Dale Earnhardt Sr. on the All time winner list. Johnson won Today's race in Overtime after a large wreck on the backstretch involving notably Aric Almirola and David Ragan. Dale Earnhardt Sr.'s son Dale Earnhardt Jr. finished second to Johnson. Kyle and Kurt Busch finish 3rd and 4th. Carl Edwards rounded out the Top 5. In a race filled with a calm begining and a wild ending Johnson from Kevin Harvick on the Last Lap (2nd to last if you ask some fans.) Another win for Johnson his 5th.

NASCAR News Source Driver of The Week

Kyle Busch failed Post Qualifying Inspection on Friday Night which caused him to lose his pole starting position. Kyle had to start at the rear of the field today and he still managed a 3rd place finish! Kyle Busch is on the verge of victory very soon in my opinion. He returns home to Vegas next weekend maybe he can pull the Jackpot and win at Home! We would like to congratulate Kyle Busch on becoming the newest NASCAR News Source Driver of The Week! Congrats on your W yesterday too!

Next Weekends Race

Next Weekend the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series heads to Vegas for the Kobalt 400! This begins the West Coast Swing. The driver who led the most laps today in Atlanta is the defending winner of the last 2 races and that guy's name is Kevin Harvick. This is where buisness picks up and I can see drivers doing things they normally would not do to make the Chase and get a win that way the clock doesn't tick anymore for them.  

John Hunter Nemechek Becomes Youngest Atlanta Winner

John Hunter Nemechek defeated not only Cameron Hayley but he also defeated Kyle Busch in the Record Book. At 18 years, 8 months and 16 days, Nemechek becomes the youngest NASCAR national series winner at Atlanta Motor Speedway beating the previous record held by Kyle Busch. Cameron Hayley, Timothy Peters, Daniel Hemric, and Grant Enfinger rounded out the Top 5. Parker Kligerman currently leads the point standings by 1 point over Daniel Hemric. The victory yesterday was his second victory in 32 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races. He won at Chicagoland last season.

NASCAR News Source Driver of the Week

Winning your second victory in your career is an impressive feat for anyone but when you only have a few logos on the truck with little to no sponsorship you see the hard work that Joe and his NEMCO Motorsports team puts in week in and week out. That's what makes these wins extra emotional and gives the fan a look at how hard work pays off especially in the Truck Series. By winning yesterday's race Front Row John becomes the newest NASCAR News Source Driver of The Week! We congratulate John on the victory!

Next Race

The trucks will take a few weeks off to relax and get ready for Martinsville in April. No truck racing in March but you will have both Xfinity and Cup to enjoy! Martinsville is shaping up to be one heck of a race. 2 teams at the moment will be making an attempt at a Debut at Martinsville (New Age Motorsports and Faith Motorsports) The fields have been rather large and with it looking to continue I would be nervous if I was those teams. 

Kyle Busch Dominates in First Atlanta Xfintiy Win!

Next Race

After a rather Quick Pick at Atlanta the NASCAR Xfinity Series heads to Sin City for the BoydGaming 300. It will certainly be a roll of the dice for some Xfinity Series regulars to see if they can be the first driver to score the big Jackpot and lock themselves into the Chase, 2 races in and we still have no driver locked into the chase. Will we see our first next weekend in Las Vegas? Tune in to find out who has the Full House in Vegas!
