The race between Carl Edwards and Jimmie Johnson is panning out to be neck and neck after 11 races. There are still many believers in a few strong outings from Kevin Harvick, but it will likely come down to these 2 power houses. Many bloggers and NASCAR enthusiasts have been noting that Edwards has the edge with a stronger pit crew and faster car, but Jimmie still has strong experience on his side.

Check out our updated poll located in the right side and let us know who you think will be driving the solo drive down victory lane… whether it’s Carl Edwards, Jimmie Johnson or anyone else for that matter.

Despite Lackluster Racing, Danica Still Gets Racy

Posted in Uncategorized on February 3, 2011 by autoracingpower

Based on past racing performance, Danica Patrick isn’t creating any NASCAR buzz for this upcoming 2011 season. However, Miss Patrick has found another way to get racy.

GoDaddy.com is known for their provocative commercials—which are always a big hit amongst the Super Bowl audience. And, this year is no exception. GoDaddy features a commercial with personal trainer, Jillian Michaels, and Danica Patrick, in which the two lovely ladies are seen discussing contract stipulations with their agents. Both Danica and Jillian agree that they don’t want to take part in such an over-the-top stunt. While, their agents calmly remind them that not only have they done “racy” ads before, they are both contractually obligated.

After the pair reluctantly adheres to the “racy” contract, the two leave a dressing room. The camera pans the floor while a provocative song plays, and we see both ladies’ feet adorned with shiny, silver heels. They continue walking to set as people gawk at them.

Then, right as a crew member trips over himself, the commercial ends…and viewers are advised to visit GoDaddy.com to see more!

Posted in Uncategorized on January 4, 2011 by autoracingpower

Hall of Famer Junior Johnson has created Junior Johnson Racing (JJR). Why? He’s hoping to use the team to propel his young son, Robert, into the Sprint Cup Series. Junior plans to run this team from shops on his Hamptonville estate—yep, surrounded by animals and all. The new team has names behind it like Keith Barnwel, who will act at the executive vice president and general manager.

Robert Johnson is currently scheduled to run the full K&N Pro Series East schedule and also plans to drive in other Late Model events. And, in preparation, Johnson hired two veteran mechanics with K&N experience—smart move.

Ecclestone Survives Mugging

Posted in Bernie Ecclestone with tags , on November 30, 2010 by autoracingpower

The 80-year old Bernie Ecclestone was robbed outside of his Formula One Holdings headquarters in Knightsbridge, central London. He was punched in the face and kicked by four men. Ecclestone was heading to his HQ with girlfriend Fabiana Flosi.

Bernie Ecclestone was taken to a London hospital and treated for a minor head injury. Since there were no other reports filed, we assume Miss Flosi was unharmed.

The bandits escaped with his jewelry worth £200,000. There are currently no arrests and officers from Westminster robbery squad have been assigned the case.
