By Pat DeCola NASCAR.com
Chip Ganassi Racing superstar Kyle Larson, fresh off his second Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series win of the season in Sunday’s race at Michigan International Speedway, has already piled on another pair of dubs in the two days since.

The 24-year-old was victorious once again in Tuesday night’s Arctic Cat All-Star Circuit of Champions at Ohio’s Sharon Speedway, a 3/8-mile dirt track that hosts sprint car races.

“Young Money” held off Carson Macedo and best friend Rico Abreu in a star-studded dirt field that also included NASCAR veteran Dave Blaney and XFINITY Series driver Cale Conley.

The Monster Energy Series points leader also won Monday’s Arctic Cat All-Star Circuit of Champions race at Wayne Count Speedway — holding off a second-place Kasey Kahne — and last week’s World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series race at Eagle Raceway in Nebraska, to spark the streak.

NASCAR Talk! / Hall of Fame Class of 2018 announced

Hall of Fame Class of 2018 announced
By Staff Report NASCAR.com May 24, 2017 at 6:14 pm
The NASCAR Hall of Fame announced its 2018 class for induction Wednesday, naming Robert Yates, Red Byron, Ray Evernham, Ken Squier and Ron Hornaday Jr. as its ninth group of legends for enshrinement.

Yates, a master engine builder and longtime team owner credited with 57 career wins, received 94 percent of votes cast by the 58 members of the voting panel, which includes one ballot from collective fan voting on NASCAR.com. His percentage is the highest since David Pearson was named on 94 percent of ballots in 2011.

In Byron, the NASCAR Hall welcomes the first champion of its premier series. Byron, who was the second highest vote-getter at 74 percent, was crowned in what was then known as the Strictly Stock division in 1949; that series is now the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

Evernham, who was named on 52 percent of the ballots, was the dominant crew chief of the 1990s, teaming with Jeff Gordon to capture three premier series championships. He also helped revolutionize modern pit stops by treating his crew as a team of professional athletes.

Squier, already recognized by the Hall as one half of the namesake Squier-Hall Award for media excellence, garnered 40 percent of the vote. The 82-year-old Vermont native was instrumental as the lead broadcaster for multiple networks, most notably calling the 1979 Daytona 500, which launched NASCAR onto the national scene.

Hornaday, 58, becomes the first inductee who made his mark in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. The four-time series champion secured 38 percent of the votes, earning induction on a tiebreaker vote with fellow nominee Alan Kulwicki.

Nominees Buddy Baker and Davey Allison were seventh and eighth in the balloting respectively.

Longtime International Speedway Corporation executive Jim France was named the 2018 recipient of the Landmark Award. He is the second member of NASCAR’s first family recognized for outstanding contributions to the sport, joining inaugural winner Anne B. France.

The NASCAR Hall of Fame Class of 2018 will be inducted next winter.

NASCAR Talk! / All star race format & info
« on: May 16, 2017, 01:32:52 PM »
NASCAR's annual All-Star race is getting a new format that pays tribute to Charlotte's "One Hot Night" of 25 years ago.

The four-stage format for the 2017 Monster Energy All-Star Race on May 20 (8 p.m. ET, FS1) will reward winning and incorporates a strategy component. Each team will have one set of softer tires — for better grip and, thus, speed — available to use at its discretion in the 70-lap exhibition race. The one caveat: Teams that choose to use the softer tires to start the final stage must start behind those that use regular tires.

With $1 million on the line, the only thing to expect Saturday under the lights at Charlotte Motor Speedway is the unexpected.

Who is driving in NASCAR's All-Star race?
A total of 20 drivers will be driving in the All-Star race Saturday night. There currently are 16 drivers locked into the shootout with the final four to be determined during the Monster Energy Open.


Drivers who have already clinched All-Star spots: Chris Buescher, Kurt Busch, Kyle Busch, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick, Jimmie Johnson, Kasey Kahne, Matt Kenseth, Brad Keselowski, Kyle Larson, Joey Logano, Jamie McMurray, Ryan Newman, Martin Truex Jr. and Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

What is the Monster Energy Open?
The Monster Energy Open is for drivers not locked into the All-Star race and will occur Saturday prior to the main event. The Open will include three stages (20 laps, 20 laps, 10 laps) and the winner of each stage will earn a spot in the All-Star race. The Monster Energy Open field will be set by two rounds of traditional knock-out qualifying. The 20th and final spot in the All-Star race will be determined through a fan vote.

What is the format and rules for the All-Star race?
The race format is as follows:

— The race will feature four stages (20 laps, 20 laps, 20 laps, 10 laps), totaling 70 laps, an ode to the 1992 edition of the same distance.

— The goal for all competitors: Earn a spot in the final 10-lap, 10-car stage.

— The winner of each of the first three stages will lock up a spot in the final stage, as long as they remain on the lead lap after the third stage.

— The cars with the best average finish in the first three stages will make up the remaining spots needed to fill the 10-car final stage.

— The remaining 10 cars will be lined up by average finish of the first three stages and given the option to pit. Exit off pit road determines starting order for final stage.

— The winner will be awarded $1,000,000.

Qualifying for the main event will include the popular "no speed limit" four-tire pit stop. Each team will have three timed laps, one of which will include a mandatory four-tire pit stop with no pit-road speed limits enforced. The five quickest teams will advance to the final round of qualifying to determine starting positions one through five. The team that completes the fastest stop will earn the Pit Crew Competition Award.

GREGORY COLUMN: 5 Things from Talladega
Allen Gregory | Bristol Herald Courier  | The Associated Press

BIG FINISH
The big picture was all good from Sunday’s Cup race at Talladega Superspeedway. To the delight of the fans, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. executed a final-lap pass of Kyle Busch and then held off a horde of challengers to win for the first time in 158 career starts and break a 101-race winless streak for Roush Fenway Racing. Stenhouse dedicated the victory, along with his earnings from Saturday’s pole position, to his late friend Bryan Clauson, who died in early August from injuries sustained in a crash at the Kansas Midget Nationals.

FULL HOUSE
One week after the Xfinity and Cup races in Richmond drew a combined total of around 40,000 fans, the seats were full in Talladega Sunday.

HIGH SPEED CHESS
While there were some lulls in Sunday’s event, the restrictor-plate suspense from Talladega remains irresistible. In addition to breathtaking speeds, the Talladega melodrama includes dangerous bump-drafting, complex side-drafting, risky blocking maneuvers and the inevitable big crash. Talladega is an anomaly on the Cup schedule, but it rarely fails to disappoint.


SAME OLD KYLE
During a rough time for the sport when drivers should be reaching out to fans instead of alienating them, the antics of Busch have gotten old. Instead of accepting his misfortune after crashes or losses, Busch continually rips the track, other drivers or his crew.

WORKING PRESS?
The number one rule for all journalists is to never cheer or clap while covering an event. Thomas Bowles, who was working for SI.com at the time, was fired in 2011 for violating that cardinal rule when he cheered from the media center as Trevor Bayne pulled off his surprise victory in the Daytona 500. But there was yelling, cheering and clapping from a member (yes, Darrell Waltrip again) of the Fox broadcast crew during the final laps of Sunday’s race.
