Ross Chastain Gains A Dreamy Charlotte Sponsor

Dream Water, a natural sleep and relaxation shot designed to promote relaxation and support restful sleep, will sponsor the No. 4 Chevrolet of driver Ross Chastain and the JD Motorsports with Gary Keller team in the May 28, 2016 Hisense 300 Xfinity Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. As part of its entry into the racing arena, Dream Water is presenting its own NASCAR VIP Experience, a sweepstakes that will provide two fans with a dream experience at one of auto racing’s biggest and most famous tracks – Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The winners will be named honorary Dream Water pit crew members for the race and will watch the event from atop the team’s pit box. They will also join Chastain and team members for a dinner the evening before the race and will be in the driver’s vehicle at pre-race introductions. Fans can enter the sweepstakes at drinkdreamwater.com/NASCAR.
“We’re excited to have Dream Water on our car for the Charlotte race, one of the highlights of the season,” stated team owner Johnny Davis. “The car looks great and Dream Water will help my driver get the quality sleep he needs to go out, be competitive and have a great year. Not much more you can ask for. We’re looking forward to a fine drive from Ross at Charlotte.”

Dream Water is a natural, zero calorie, 2.5oz liquid sleep enhancer. It consists of three key natural ingredients – GABA (helps one relax), Melatonin (helps induce sleep) and 5-HTP (helps improve the quality of sleep). This SleepStat Natural blend helps people fall asleep naturally and wake refreshed.

“This exciting new partnership with JD Motorsports allows us to bring sleep to an energy-dominated sport” said Dream Water CEO David Lekach. “We want everyone to realize that our bodies are powered by sleep and a good night’s rest can enhance physical and mental performance, especially on each of our personal race days.”

Dream Water can be purchased at Circle K, Kangaroo Express as well as Walgreens, Kroger, CVS, Target, Ahold, Harris Teeter, Airport retailers Hudson News and Paradies as well as other leading drug or grocery stores. It is available in three lightly flavored options: Snoozeberry, NighTEA Night and Nighttime Nectar. (JD Motorsports Press Release)

What's the Problem? - Kasey Kahne vs. Danica Patrick

On Sunday in Southern California Danica Patrick was running 19th when she and Kasey Kahne made contact sending Patrick violently into the wall. Patrick luckily walked away but as she did she walked back toward the racing surface to show her displeasure to Kahne, which as many people know is now a problem when it faces driver safety. This has been one of the top conversations of the week and the possible penalties that could face both Kahne and Patrick later on today or tomorrow. When it comes to fans they are the first one to tell other fans and
NASCAR. Many fans and other writers view this situation just like the situation in Martinsville last year with Joey Logano and Matt Kenseth and that if NASCAR does not suspend Kasey Kahne for two weeks they owe Matt Kenseth an apology from last season.
NASCAR does not owe Matt Kenseth anything not even an apology. A problem that happened last year, Matt Kenseth served his suspension, Matt and Joey had a conversation, end of story. Many of these situations don't need to be flared out like that one and that is honestly my opinion. Yes the crash looked deliberate but why would Kasey Kahne want to wreck Danica Patrick? What good comes out of that. The respectful think is the fact that Kasey Kahne took full responsibility of the crash. This was another racing incident that ended
bad just like the situation at Kansas with Matt and Joey but if it comes down to every time someone wrecks someone else even if it is just accidental then we should just ban aggressive driving like Indy Car does. Now would you rather have that or would you want to see drivers make a last lap pass for the lead while making a little contact. This will always be a touchy subject because of what happened last year in Martinsville and the ramifications that followed both Kenseth and Logano. Kenseth faced a 2 week suspension while Logano is still one
of the most hated drivers. The Danica Patrick vs. Kasey Kahne situation could flare out like the Martinsville Conflict but when do we draw the line? When do we actually pull rules for these types of action or can we just enjoy two drivers racing hard for a spot or a lapped down car is looking for drafting help to get their lap back like Kahne did on Sunday. Rather you think it was deliberate or not on Sunday you need to consider what could happen. (Koelle,2016)
