The day's news: Some good, some not so much

These days it's a good thing when you can report anything about people running races at any level, so Monday's best bit of NASCAR news was details of plans for the No. 5 Nationwide Series car owned by JR Motorsports.

Ryan Newman, Scott Wimmer and Tony Stewart will join Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Mark Martin in running 21 total races this year. Wimmer will run six races and Newman will do four. Stewart will run at Charlotte in October.

The only races left open on the No. 5 team's schedule are road course races at Watkins Glen on Aug. 8 and at Montreal on Aug. 30. Drivers for those races are to be announced.

Newman will run at Dover in May, Chicagoland in July, Michigan in August and Kansas in October. Wimmer's races are at Darlington in May, Milwaukee in June, O'Reilly Raceway Park in Indianapolis in July, Bristol in August and Richmond in September.

Earnhardt has five races left in the car, beginning at Texas. Martin will drive it in May at Richmond.

Budweiser out of NHRA: Budweiser announced Monday that this will be its last as the official beer sponsor of the National Hot Rod Association as primary sponsor of Kenny Bernstein's Top Fuel team, which has a car driven by Brandon Bernstein. Budweiser and Bernstein had been together 30 years.

Furniture Row adjusts schedule: Furniture Row Racing has added the Texas race to its schedule for Regan Smith, so it will now run 13 Cup races this year. The team has also decided not to run the No. 78 Chevrolet in the road course races at Sonoma and Watkins Glen as well as the May race at Dover. The team added races at Darlington, Pocono (June) and Indianapolis.

"We all sat down and re-evaluated our schedule to see what suits our racing program the best," said Joe Garone, Furniture Row Racing's general manager. "Since we're a sponsor-owned team we have the flexibility to move in and move out of race markets. We will most likely make additional changes as the season progresses."

The story about Marcus Smith's degree could be bigger than it looks since the error, if there is one, is in an SEC filing.
