NASCAR takes a breather this week before the next race in Texas. Regan Smith reflects on being the 'Super Substitute', Danica Patrick is hopeful and Richard Childress Racing fights a big penalty from NASCAR.
X-Finity driver Regan Smith is enjoying this week's break in the schedule before next week's race in Texas, after filling in for Kurt Busch, while on suspension and an ailing Kyle Larson in the Cup Series. Smith says it's been a lot of work, but...
"I'm getting a lot of experience with different people and different teams and you know, learning how every place works."
Danica Patrick got a top ten finish at Martinsville and hopes to make it two in a row at Texas, crediting her success to her relationship with her crew chief:
"I think it's really good. I think we have a lot of fun, but we also do good work."
Richard Childress Racing is appealing NASCAR's ruling for alleged tire manipulation at Fontana. Penalties included the loss of 75 driver and owner points and Ryan Newman's crew chief Luke Lambert getting a $125,000 fine and six race suspension.
And, it's Saturday night racing, April 11th when NASCAR goes to Texas Motor Speedway.
