NASCAR fans can meet Kyle Petty and Wally Dallenbach at a book-signing event Saturday at Daytona International Speedway.

If misery loves company, Joe Gibbs Racing's Tony Stewart had to pick up a few thousand more fans after Sunday's rain-whacked Lenox Industrial Tools 301.

Martin Truex Jr. was perplexed, Michael Waltrip was exultant, and J.J. Yeley was relieved Sunday evening in the aftermath of the Lenox Industrial Tools 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

The voice came down from the spotter's stand and over the radio, as clear as if Keith Barnwell were sitting in the back seat. "You run faster lap times when you're not using the brake," he told driver Patrick Carpentier. "Let that thing roll through there."

With Kurt Busch's No. 2 Dodge parked behind the pace car on pit road and a rear brake-duct hose dangling onto the pavement, NASCAR called Sunday's Lenox Industrial Tools 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and anointed a victor who said he didn't deserve to win.


LOUDON, N.H. (June 30, 2008) Michael McDowell's efforts were derailed when his #00 Champion Mortgage Toyota engine expired at Lap 209 of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event resulting in a 42nd-place finish. Even though McDowell's day ended early at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, he was glad to see Michael Waltrip and the #55 NAPA AUTO PARTS Toyota team score a runner-up finish with solid pit strategy in the rain shortened LENOX Industrial Tools 301.


LOUDON, NH - UPS driver David Reutimann and the #44 Michael Waltrip Racing (MWR) Team took the New England area by storm as they earned at top-20 finish during the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Sunday afternoon.


LOUDON, N.H. A fast NAPA AUTO PARTS Toyota Camry and good pit strategy enabled Michael Waltrip and the NAPA Racing team to record their best finish of the season by scoring second place in Sunday's LENOX Industrial Tools 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS). The event had to be shortened due to rain and it washed out Waltrip's chance to race Kurt Busch for the victory. The NAPA team's result was very impressive considering Waltrip had to start from the back of the field due to an engine change on Friday. The top-five finish also boosted the NAPA team to 28th-place in the owner points standings.

New Hampshire Motor Speedway's two Sprint Cup dates aren't going anywhere, according to new track owner Bruton Smith.
