A NASCAR weekend in Indianapolis


ChadIt’s that time of the week again, sports fans! And after both the NASCAR Craftsman truck series and NEXTEL Cup Series had last weekend off, this weekend’s races are sure to be nothing short of exciting at Indianapolis. First up is the Craftsman Truck Series No. 08 TheGPSStore.com / Garmin driver Chad McCumbee at the O’Reilly Raceway. Chad’s last race was at the Kentucky Speedway two weeks ago, where after a 10th-position start, Chad and team took home a top-20 finish. Chad will take on the .686-mile oval track in the Power Stroke Diesel 200 at 7:30 tonight on the SPEED channel. Good luck, Chad!

Zpfile012_jpgWhile in town, stay tuned to see how No. 66 Best Buy / Haas CNC Racing driver Jeff Green does in the NEXTEL Cup Series event at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway at the Brickyard 400. Since last weekend was an off week for the NEXTEL Cup, Jeff took a shot at another sport, and all for a good cause. The Green Foundation (of which Jeff is a co-founder) raised close to $60,000 through this year’s golf tournament event. And that’s exactly the kind of success Jeff is hoping for this weekend! With a 29th-place finish two weeks ago at the Chicagoland Speedway, Jeff has some room for improvement on this 2.5 mile track. "To be able to race at such a historic facility is amazing. Coming down the front stretch with the grandstands on either side of you is an incredible site for a race car driver." Tune in to cheer Jeff on at 1 p.m. this Sunday afternoon. We hope to see both drivers in victory lane this weekend; good luck!
