Kahne to drive for Leavine Family Racing in 2018

CONCORD, N.C. (September 19, 2017) - Leavine Family Racing (LFR) has announced that Kasey Kahne will pilot the #95 Chevrolet Camaro for the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) season.

Kahne, who has driven for Hendrick Motorsports since 2012, has signed on to be LFR's primary driver for the 2018 season.

LFR has recorded impressive finishes as a single-car team during the 2017 MENCS season and feels that Kahne, winner of the Brickyard 400 in 2017, would not only be a top driver for the team in the MENCS series in 2018, but also be instrumental in assisting the team to attract new sponsorship in the future.

"I want to thank Leavine Family Racing for this opportunity and will work as hard as possible to help them continue improving," said Kahne. "I am ready for this challenge and look forward to making a fresh start. Bob and everyone at Leavine Family Racing put a lot into their program and I'm excited to become a part of it."

"We look at this as an opportunity to go to the next level," said LFR team owner, Bob Leavine. "This deals partially with performance, because obviously, Kasey is a playoff-caliber driver. He has a wealth of information being with a larger organization like Hendrick Motorsports, and we think that will help us. We also look at this as an opportunity for marketing to be able to sell sponsorship.

Overall, we think Kasey is a good fit and felt we needed a change. There is absolutely nothing that Michael (McDowell) did, it was just a matter of us having to make some changes to help us move up the ladder and be a factor in the playoffs. I know Kasey will bring things that will help us, and I believe our environment will be conducive to his confidence level, which will in turn raise our confidence level. It just seemed like the right time and the right fit for our team."

NASCAR Talk! / Smithfield moves to Stewart-Haas Racing in 2018
« on: September 13, 2017, 08:03:24 PM »
Smithfield moves to Stewart-Haas Racing in 2018

Smithfield Foods Statement Regarding Richard Petty Motorsports:

"We are extremely disappointed that Richard Petty Motorsports (RPM) has chosen to disparage Smithfield - its lead sponsor - after five years and tens of millions of dollars of unwavering financial support, despite years of subpar performance on the track. RPM's claims of a 'handshake deal' to extend our sponsorship are unequivocally and patently false.

Smithfield's numerous discussions with RPM over the past several months focused exclusively around one issue: RPM's inability to deliver on the track and the organization's repeated failure to present a plan to address its lack of competitiveness.

Statement by Richard Petty Regarding Loss of Sponsor

Richard Petty Motorsports (RPM) was recently notified that its current partner, Smithfield Foods, will not return to the team next season. Aric Almirola will also not return to the #43.

A statement from Richard Petty:

"We have had numerous discussions with Smithfield Foods regarding the extension of our relationship dating as far back as February. Over the past few months, Smithfield had continually told me they wanted to be with us, and I recently shook hands on a deal to extend our relationship. I come from a time when we did major deals with sponsors like STP on a handshake. I'm sad to see this is where we are now. This decision is very unexpected, and we are extremely disappointed in this late and abrupt change of direction.

"Losing a sponsor of this magnitude in September is a significant set-back to Richard Petty Motorsports, but Andy (Murstein) and I are committed to moving forward with the #43 team. We have a lot of great partners who have expressed their continued support, and our fans will rally around the #43. We've been around since 1949, and we'll be around a lot longer."

--- Richard Petty Motorsports ---

AND Smithfield Foods Inc., a global food company and the world's largest pork processor and hog producer, announced earlier today it will join Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) as a primary team sponsor beginning in 2018. Details of the agreement, including the driver who will be added to SHR's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series lineup in 2018, will be provided at a later date.
 
"We're very proud to have Smithfield Foods join the Stewart-Haas Racing family," said Brett Frood, president, SHR. "Smithfield has activated heavily and successfully within the sport, and we're honored to be a part of the brand's forward initiatives and strategy. Although we're not ready to announce the full details of the program, we look forward to this new endeavor while remaining focused on the upcoming playoffs and putting forth the best effort possible to win more races and contend for another championship."

Stewart-Haas Racing currently fields four entries in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series - the #4 Ford Fusion for Kevin Harvick, the #10 Ford Fusion for Danica Patrick, the #14 Ford Fusion for Clint Bowyer and the #41 Ford Fusion for Kurt Busch. The team also competes in the NASCAR XFINITY Series by fielding a full time entry - the #00 Ford Mustang for Cole Custer - and one part-time entry - the #41 Ford Mustang.

NASCAR Talk! / Danica Patrick will not return to SHR in 2018
« on: September 13, 2017, 07:57:16 PM »
Danica Patrick will not return to SHR in 2018

As many of you are aware, Stewart-Haas Racing announced this morning they will have a new sponsor/driver for the 2018 season. Below is a statement from Danica regarding the announcement.

"It has been my honor to drive for Tony Stewart, Gene Haas and everyone at Stewart-Haas Racing for the past six seasons. Together we earned a Daytona 500 pole, seven top-10 finishes and we also had some exciting racing along the way. My time driving for them, however, has come to an end due to a new sponsorship arrangement in 2018."

"Sponsorship plays a vital role in our sport, and I have been very fortunate over the course of my career, but this year threw us for a curve. Our amazing partners, such as Aspen Dental and Code 3, stepped up in a big way on short notice this year and I am incredibly grateful."

"I wish SHR the best of luck with their new sponsorship and driver. Thanks for the memories. Right now, my focus is on the remainder of the 2017 season and finishing the year strong. I have the utmost faith in myself and those around me, and feel confident about my future."

UPDATED as of 8/29/17:

Chase Elliott to drive the #9 in 2018; William Byron in the #24
Aug 29, 2017, Jayski.com staff

CONCORD, N.C. (Aug. 29, 2017) - When a new NASCAR season begins in February, rising star Chase Elliott will be reunited with the number synonymous with his legendary racing family and rookie William Byron will take the wheel of one of the most iconic cars in motor sports history.

In 2018, 12-time NASCAR Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports will introduce the #9 NAPA AUTO PARTS Chevrolet Camaro to its four-car team with Elliott in the driver's seat. The Dawsonville, Georgia, native raced the #9 to the 2014 NASCAR Xfinity Series title, and his Hall of Fame father Bill Elliott memorably drove it to 38 Cup-level wins and the 1988 series championship.

"I wasn't sure I'd ever drive the '9' again," said Chase Elliott, 21, who is currently in his second season driving the #24 Chevy for Hendrick Motorsports. "It's a huge deal to my family and everyone back home (in Georgia), and I hope all of our fans will be pumped to see it back on the racetrack. There's a legacy attached to that number, and I want to carry it on. I think it's awesome that Hendrick Motorsports and NAPA wanted to do this. It's impossible not to be excited."

When Byron starts his first career Daytona 500 next year, it will be in the iconic #24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet made famous by four-time Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon and his storied Rainbow Warriors team. Byron will begin his 2018 rookie season at the same age Gordon was (20) when he made his Cup debut in 1992.

"Jeff and Jimmie (Johnson) are the drivers I've always watched most closely and tried to learn from," said Byron, 19, who grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina, and signed with Hendrick Motorsports in August 2016. "I didn't think I could be more motivated, but when Mr. (Rick) Hendrick called to tell me (about driving the #24), it took things to another level. I have so much respect for all the people who have contributed to the success of the '24.' I know it's rare to have the chance to be part of something like this. I'm going to make the most of it."

Next season, Elliott and Byron will team with the #48 of seven-time Cup champion Johnson, 41, and the #88 of 24-year-old newcomer Alex Bowman in the Hendrick Motorsports stable.

"I know what the '9' means to Chase and his whole family," said Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports. "They've contributed so much to our sport, and I'm happy we can honor that history by bringing the number back. I think fans will really love seeing it out there. I told Chase we'd only do it if he promised to win a bunch of races, so I'm going to hold him to that.

"The 'fit factor' is something I've always believed in, and that's what I see with William and our organization. He reminds me a lot of Jeff at that age with regard to being a special talent and having a great head on his shoulders. But William is also his own person with his own career ahead of him. It's going to be fun to watch him jump in the '24' and show what he's capable of."

The debut of the #9 will mark the first time in nearly a decade that Hendrick Motorsports will field a new car number for one of its full-time teams. The most recent addition was the No. 88, which was added in 2008 when driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. joined the organization.

"I'm excited about the future," Hendrick said. "We've made some management decisions recently that I feel really good about. Looking at next year, Jimmie will continue to be a leader and help set the tone. Alex is chomping at the bit and ready to go. When you add the (new) Chevrolet Camaro race car into the mix, it'll definitely be a new look for us. Everyone's energized."

Following the 2017 season, Hendrick Motorsports will withdraw its No. 5 car number from competition. It was the organization's first car number and has run full-time since the team was founded in 1984. The No. 5 was raced to Hendrick Motorsports' first victory at Martinsville Speedway during its inaugural season, and Terry Labonte drove it to a Cup Series championship in 1996.

"That was by far the hardest part (of the car number decisions)," Hendrick said. "The '5' means so much to everyone at Hendrick Motorsports and to a lot of our fans. The memories and the history will always be there, and I won't rule out bringing it back some day. Never say never."

Next season, Elliott and the #9 will be fielded by his current #24 team while Byron and the #24 will be fielded by the current #5 team.

Brad Keselowski Racing will end Truck operations, leaves door open for top series
By Zack Albert NASCAR.com   

Brad Keselowski Racing announced Thursday that it will cease operations after the 2017 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season, prepping for a potential move to NASCAR’s top division at a much later date.

The announcement came from namesake team owner Brad Keselowski, the 2012 champion of NASCAR’s premier series. Keselowski’s organization currently fields Fords F-150s for Chase Briscoe, 22, and 18-year-old Austin Cindric, both in their first full season of truck competition.

“The Truck Series is truly special to me given my family’s ties to the history of the sport, and this decision comes with much contemplation,” Keselowski said in the team release, mentioning his father, Bob, who was a pioneering truck competitor dating back to the series’ first season. “But, for a number of reasons, and as I plan for the long-term future, I’ve decided not to field a team in 2018.”

Keselowski has fielded entries in the Camping World Truck Series since 2008, helping further the careers of many young drivers, including Ryan Blaney, Daniel Hemric and Tyler Reddick. The BKR organization scored its first win in 2012 with Blaney at the wheel, adding eight more victories to its tally in the years that followed.

Brad Keselowski Racing moved into a gleaming, 78,000-square-foot shop in Statesville, North Carolina, ahead of the 2016 season. Keselowski indicated that he hoped to use that headquarters as a base of operations for potential entry into the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series at a much later stage of his career.

“I’ve never made it a secret that I would eventually like to be an owner at the top level of the sport,” said Keselowski, who further explained the reasons behind his difficult decision in his personal blog. “And, while this is many years down the line, I want to start to prepare for that possibility now. Part of that preparation is seeking to develop an advanced engineering and manufacturing company that would be housed out of our 78,000-square-foot facility in Statesville and ultimately help to support this vision.”

The team said in the release that it remained committed to finishing strong in the 2017 Camping World Truck Series campaign. Briscoe sits fourth in the series standings with two pole positions in the 14 races thus far. Cindric ranks 10th, riding a string of six straight top-10 finishes in the series.
