NASCAR Preview For Richmond

This weekend’s race at Richmond will be the final chance for a number of drivers to make the field for the championship Chase.  It’ll also be NASCAR’s patriotic way of honoring the heroes and victims of 9/11.  NASCAR and Richmond International Raceway will honor America during pre-race ceremonies on the night before the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the United States.

The number 39 Chevy driven by Ryan Newman will feature a special paint scheme this weekend.  It’ll carry the names of the 75 U-S Army personnel killed at the Pentagon during the terrorist attacks of 2001.  The U-S Army car will carry the inscription “We Will Never Forget” with a logo featuring the World Trade Center Twin Towers, the Pentagon and the American flag.

Only 3 more slots have yet to be filled in the championship run.  Tony Stewart holds down 10th place while Brad Keselowski will make it at least as a wildcard because he has three victories this season.

Denny Hamlin is the defending race winner.  Actually he’s won this race two years in a row and he’s one of the drivers who could earn a spot in the championship with a good day.

AJ Allmendinger, Clint Bowyer and Greg Biffle are on the outside looking in and need some help.
