JR Motorsports picks up sponsorship

The JR Motorsports team picked up some sponsorship in the Nationwide Series on Wednesday when GoDaddy.com expanded its involvement.

GoDaddy.com will be the primary sponsor on 20 Nationwide Series races for JR Motorsports and seven Sprint Cup races with Hendrick Motorsports. It also will be an associate sponsor on Mark Martin’s No. 5 Sprint Cup Chevrolets.

GoDaddy.com will sponsor Earnhardt Jr. in two Nationwide Series races in the No. 5 Chevrolets. It will be on Brad Keselowski’s No. 88 Chevrolets for 18 Nationwide races and seven Sprint Cup races in the No. 25 Chevrolet. Lance McGrew will be crew chief for that Cup effort.

Keselowski’s Nationwide car now has sponsorship for the full season. Unilever is on the car for 11 races and Delphi Corp is on for six.

Briefly: Darlington and Talladega have announced ticket price reductions for upcoming events. Darlington has lowered prices to $35 for nearly 9,000 seats for the Southern 500 in May. Talladega has cut prices on 20,000 tickets in the Gadsden and Lincoln grandstands to $40 for the AMP Energy 500 on April 26. … General Motors has renewed its sponsorship of Daytona International Speedway and the Daytona 500 on a year-by-year basis but at a significantly reduced rate, the Detroit News reports. … Scenedaily.com reports that Dover has torn down its inside wall on the frontstretch and replace it with one that includes SAFER barriers. The track will also slightly widen its pit road and add a 43rd stall to it. In the past the 42nd and 43rd cars in the starting lineup had to share a pit stall because there were only 42 spots on pit lane. … Another National Hot Rod Association Top Fuel team announced it was shutting down Wednesday as David Powers Motorsports and Caterpillar announced they had agreed to end Caterpillar’s sponsorship of the team for driver Rod Fuller. Team owner David Powers said he is selling the Top Fuel and show car program assets. “During these difficult times, I need to focus on homebuilding,” Powers said. “During my 26 years in the homebuilding industry, these are the most challenging times I’ve been through.” Fuller finished sixth in the 2008 standings.

RE: Dover pit road...It's been a long long long long time coming. Seems like cashing the attendance check over the years was more important than fixing pit road...Spin doctors can spin all they want but this issue needed fixing 15 years ago. But hey let's build more stands to pack the fans. Better late than never I suppose.

I repeat what Jeff Gordon said about another track about being "modern." For me it's just near criminal that some of these speedways still have safety issues they should fix. We are in 2009 with enough dead and injured NASCAR drivers that all, ALL, major safety problems at speedways are fixed. And let no one say that Dover's pit road isn't a major safety hazard. North America's largest motor racing series has to slow down to elementary school zone speed on pit road to run an event...Well enough said. Maybe this will fix it.

And by the way, with only 42 stalls, why didn't someone in the Ivory Tower in Daytona just say that only 42 cars could enter Dover? NASCAR as usual is backward looking and not forward thinking.

Dover is one of my favorite tracks for competition, and it's a fan friendly track in viewing and in other ways. And that crossover walk is outstanding. Anyone that has ever stopped (in the old days the guards wouldn't let you stop long) and feel 800hp rockets under you knows what I am talking about...But I was also a Cup team member in the 1980s and Dover's pit raod was unsafe then as it is (was) now. And the garage area is substandard for a major racing series. So that's why I am hard on Dover...They ain't suffered in attendance over the years.
