Today, Igloo released three new NASCAR-licensed Playmate coolers that expand upon their previously released special-edition Playmate series. Featuring custom artwork inspired by driver Martin Truex Jr., a limited-edition Chase Elliott Hooters design honoring Alan Kulwicki and a retro NASCAR design, these new Playmate Pal coolers — launching ahead of the Official Throwback Weekend of NASCAR at Darlington Raceway May 7–9, 2021 — are available now at igloocoolers.com/NASCAR.

 

“Continuing our partnership with NASCAR has been increasingly fun as we dream up new ways to capture the best parts of America’s favorite motorsport onto our coolers,” said Brian Garofalow, Chief Marketing Officer at Igloo. “Throwback Weekend and our iconic Playmate are a perfect combination. We know NASCAR fans are going to love these designs!”

 

Perfect to commemorate the Official Throwback Weekend of NASCAR at Darlington Raceway, Igloo’s new NASCAR Lightning Retro Playmate Pal design is a vintage take on the classic race car, while the limited-edition Chase Elliott Hooters Playmate Pal is a tribute to 1992 NASCAR Cup Series champion Alan Kulwicki (and Hooters’ first full-time sponsorship with NASCAR) featuring the memorable paint scheme of his car from the early ‘90s. Also new to the Igloo Driver Series of Playmate coolers is the Martin Truex Jr. Playmate Pal with a design inspired by the champion driver’s fire suit (complete with sponsor logo, car number and signature); this design joins the previously released Igloo Driver Series lineup, including Kyle Busch, Chase Elliott and Kevin Harvick Playmate coolers. Igloo crafted each new Playmate Pal cooler — with capacity for up to nine 12-ounce cans — specifically for the NASCAR fan with custom graphics on the Playmate’s classic tent-top lid.

 

All the Playmate Pal coolers within this special-edition collection licensed by NASCAR are available now for $39.99 each, while supplies last.

Superstar Racing Experience (SRX) has announced the format for its six-race short-track series that will debut this summer on Saturday nights in primetime on the CBS Television Network and streaming live on Paramount+.

 

Each event will consist of three parts: two 15-minute heat races and a 100-lap feature race, with the heats setting the starting lineup for the feature. Points earned in both heats and the feature will count toward the season-ending championship. The season-opening SRX race is June 12 at Stafford (Conn.) Motor Speedway with the live broadcast starting at 8 p.m. EDT. Details on the event format are as follows:

 

Heat Race No. 1: 

●  Timed race (15 minutes). When time is up, leader is shown white flag signifying one lap remaining.

●  All drivers draw for their cars to start this heat.

●  Field is lined up by a random draw.

 

Heat Race No. 2: 

●  Timed race (15 minutes). When time is up, leader is shown white flag signifying one lap remaining.

●  Drivers’ finishing position in Heat Race No. 1 will be inverted for start of Heat Race No. 2.

 

Feature Race:

●  Distance is 100 laps (except at Slinger Speedway where distance is 150 laps).

●  Starting lineup is based on finishing position in Heat Race No. 2.

●  Unlimited attempts at a green-white-checkered finish.

 

Points will be awarded in both heats and the feature. In each heat, the winner receives a maximum of 12 points. Second place earns 11 points with every position in descending order receiving one fewer point, with the 12th-place finisher earning one point. Points increase in the feature, with the winner receiving 25 points, second place 22 points, third place 20 points, fourth place 18 points, fifth place 16 points, sixth place 14 points, seventh place 12 points, eighth place 10 points, ninth place eight points, 10th place six points, 11th place four points and 12th place two points.

 

“It was very important to come up with a format that would provide the best entertainment to our fans while rewarding the drivers for their performance. This format will do that,” said Ray Evernham, co-founder of SRX. “Every driver has the same opportunity. They’re in a car that’s very different because it’s so universal. It’s a road-course car first, a pretty good dirt car, and just an OK paved oval car. That takes the advantage away from the stock-car guys who run ovals all the time. We’ve tried to take the car out of the equation and force these guys to use the skills that we pay to see – how to figure out a new surface, how to figure out a new racetrack, how can they make this car go around using the old-school tools of the steering wheel, the gas pedal and the brake pedal. Driver input is what’s really important with this racecar, and this format accentuates that.”

 

“The SRX team and CBS have created a great format that will make for an exciting viewing experience,” added Pam Miller, producer, CBS Sports. “The short heats will make the competition between drivers more intense, creating a thrilling broadcast from the early moments through to the final laps of the feature race. Watching those battles play out on the short tracks will add drama and excitement, entertaining viewers each week.”

 

“With this format, you not only have to be the fastest driver, but you’ve got to be the smartest driver too,” said Tony Stewart, SRX co-founder and driver. “This is going to be a challenge. These are new, purpose-built racecars that none of us have driven before. Every track is so different, and we don’t know how abrasive the pavement tracks are going to be and what kind of grip we’re going to have on the dirt tracks. Even for the local all-stars who have turned thousands of laps at their particular track, they’ll be doing it in a totally different environment. It’s all unpredictable, but that’s what’ll make for great racing and a great fan experience, whether they’re in the grandstands or at home watching on CBS.”

 

After SRX’s debut at Stafford, the series visits back-to-back dirt tracks – Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway on June 19 and Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, on June 26. SRX returns to pavement July 3 at Lucas Oil Raceway near Indianapolis and then ventures north to Slinger (Wis.) Speedway on July 10 before its season finale July 17 at the Nashville (Tenn.) Fairgrounds Speedway where the inaugural SRX champion will be crowned.

 

Stewart, Tony Kanaan, Paul Tracy, Bobby Labonte, Willy T. Ribbs, Bill Elliott, Ernie Francis Jr., Marco Andretti, Helio Castroneves and Michael Waltrip are the 10 fulltime drivers comprising SRX. Local all-stars join the SRX regulars at the first five races, with six-time NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Doug Coby at Stafford, four-time Knoxville track champion Brian Brown at Knoxville, five-time USAC Silver Crown champion Kody Swanson at Eldora, prolific USAC and NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour winner Bobby Santos III at Lucas Oil Raceway and the winner of the July 6 Slinger Nationals – one of the most prestigious short-track races in the country – competing in the penultimate SRX race at Slinger. Inclusion of additional drivers to round out the 12-car fields will be announced at later dates.

The Big Machine Music City Grand Prix is thrilled to announce its partnership with the iconic Grand Ole Opry to present an Opry performance in downtown Nashville on Sunday, August 8. The special Opry set against a Nashville skyline backdrop will feature a host of incredible performers, including Opry member, country superstar, and longtime racing enthusiast Alan Jackson. Fans and attendees of the Big Machine Music City Grand Prix will get a chance to experience the true heart of Nashville, as the Opry has been home to country music for 95 years.
The Grand Ole Opry stage at Big Machine Music City Grand Prix will close out the three day festival, with a full lineup of talent to be announced at a later date, culminating with country music superstar, Alan Jackson. 
“When we first began to conceptualize the Big Machine Music City Grand Prix we knew music had to be just as big a part of this event as the racing itself, and there is no better partner for this than the Grand Ole Opry - the show that made country music famous,” said Matt Crews, CEO of Big Machine Music City Grand Prix. “We are looking forward to closing out what is sure to be an unforgettable weekend in the best way possible with the Grand Ole Opry.”
The Nashville-based Opry has rarely in its history taken its iconic show outside its home venue, on those occasions visiting prestigious locales such as New York City’s Carnegie Hall and Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts as well as staging headlining shows at Bonnaroo, the iconic Manchester, Tennessee all-genre music festival. 
“The Big Machine Music City Grand Prix has brought together a course like no other, an artist like no other and a show like no other to create an experience that could only take place here in Nashville,” said Scott Bailey, President of Opry Entertainment Group. “We are pleased to have the opportunity to connect artists and fans in such a unique setting.”
The three-day international festival of speed and sound August 6-8, 2021 offers something for everyone. It will be staged on a temporary 2.17-mile grand prix circuit in Nashville and around the Nissan Stadium campus. The course will cross the Cumberland River via the Korean Veterans Memorial Bridge, making the Music City Grand Prix the only current event in motorsports to cross over a major body of water.
In addition to a weekend of racing, attendees can look forward to the best Nashville has to offer, including live music performances by top artists, best-in-class food experiences and entertainment that centers on speed in a way only Music City can serve up.

Not Only Motorsport for sure impressed in its 2020 NASCAR Whelen Euro Series debut season. The Italian team will expand to three cars for the 2021 campaign and bring a strong driver line-up to the tracks throughout Europe. Not Only Motorsport already signed two EuroNASCAR PRO, three EuroNASCAR 2 and two Club Challenge drivers for the upcoming season. 

Davide Dallara will again join the team to drive the #89 Chevrolet Camaro in the EuroNASCAR PRO Championship. The 2020 Challenger Trophy winner – the special classification for silver and bronze drivers in EuroNASCAR’s top championship – scored five top-10 results in nine races over the course of the season. 

Alberto Panebianco, who made his EuroNASCAR PRO debut with Not Only Motorsport Valencia in 2020, will share the car with Dallara to compete full time in the EuroNASCAR 2 Championship.

“I’ve been waiting for this moment for my whole life and it’s a dream come true”, said the Italian, who showed great potential at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo. “I’m very happy and so motivated to race in the EuroNASCAR 2 Championship. My aim is to experience a successful debut season and play my chances in the Rookie Trophy. We know that the level of competition is very high and I have to learn a lot as it’s my first year in racing. I’ll take the challenge and we’ll see how we progress during the season. Massive thanks to the Not Only Motorsport family for the opportunity, we are ready to fight!”

The #90 car will go into the hands of Andrea Nori in the EuroNASCAR PRO Championship. The former rally driver will be back on track after a break of about two years. The third Italian in Not Only Motorsport’s line-up already gained important experience during the first tests in a EuroNASCAR car and is ready to join the battle in Europe’s official NASCAR series.

“After being almost two years absent from racing, I’m finally ready to get back in the game”, said Nori. “I’m sure I’ve chosen a competitive championship that will bring me a lot of fun and satisfaction. I really can’t wait to get started! My expectations are high and with my team I will try to be right in the mix from the very beginning. I’m looking forward to racing in Valencia.”

Nori is joined by EuroNASCAR returnee Naveh Talor, who will be fighting for the EuroNASCAR 2 title with his new team. The Israeli made his NWES debut in 2019 and finished 14th in the overall standings after he competed in 11 of 13 races. In 2020, Talor made four starts during the Super Speedweek in Valencia for Not Only Motorsport. The 19-year-old collected four top-10 finishes so far in his young NWES career and showed great potential to become a real title threat in the EuroNASCAR 2 Championship. 

“I’m really excited to be back with the Not Only Motorsport team in the 2021 season”, said the Herzliya native. “The whole team and its owner Luca welcomed me in last year’s Valencia event and showed me their potential and professionalism to be fighting at the top positions while allowing me to feel at home with the friendly atmosphere. I think together we can achieve great results as it will be my second or third time at some of the tracks which has never happened in my career. My goal is to constantly fight for the top 5 and to finally achieve some podiums and have the Israeli flag on the podium. Follow me and the team for inside content on all the races.” 

Igor Romanov from Ukraine will take over the wheel of the #91 car in the EuroNASCAR 2 Championship. The journalist and race car driver always had the dream to become a NASCAR driver that he fulfilled in 2020 with his first race at Circuit Zolder, Belgium. In 2021, his amazing adventure will continue with Not Only Motorsport, the team he also represented in the EuroNASCAR Esports Series on iRacing. 

“It was my biggest dream to become a NASCAR driver and that’s why I’m so happy to be here”, said Romanov. “I’m very grateful to my team Not Only Motorsport and the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series for the possibility to continue this beautiful trip. Sure our young team will be much stronger this season. Also during all this time I’ve made a lot of things to promote our series in Ukraine. Sure very soon you’ll see here more drivers from our region.” 

Nicolò Gabossi, winner of the team’s “Become a NASCAR driver” challenge, and Simona Lenci will drive for Not Only Motorsport in the Club Challenge, the regularity based competition     that takes place on selected NWES race weekends. The NASCAR Whelen Euro Series season opener will take place on May 15-16 at Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, Spain. The Qualifying and all races will be broadcasted live on EuroNASCAR’s social media channels – YouTube, Facebook, Twitch – and Motorsport.tv.

After turning the wheel over to Grant Enfinger last weekend at Kansas Speedway, Codie Rohrbaugh returns to the driving duties for CR7 Motorsports for Friday night’s LiftKits4Less.com 200 at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway.

Set to make his sixth NCWTS start of the season aboard the No. 9 Grant County Mulch Chevrolet Silverado, Rohrbaugh is hoping to end a rocky three-race stretch and earn his second top-10 finish of the season for his family-owned team.

“I want to thank Grant for the good job he did at Kansas last weekend,” said Rohrbaugh. “His No. 9 Camping World Chevrolet wasn’t the best at the start of the race -- but his relentless effort propelled our night forward and he ended the night with a decent top-20 finish.

“I definitely want to continue his trend at Darlington this weekend.”

The Petersburg, Va. native will make his second NCWTS start at Darlington’s 1.366-mile track and looks to improve on a 25th place finish earned last fall.

With 150 laps under his belt, Rohrbaugh is hoping his second go-around with the track dubbed “Too Tough To Tame” will present a better picture for his Statesville, N.C.-based team.

“Darlington definitely lived up to its reputation,” added Rohrbaugh who owns five career top-10 finishes in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series competition. “I learned a lot about the track and what I need to make our No. 9 Grant County Mulch Chevrolet Silverado go.

“The groove is definitely tight, and you need to make sure you have the balance to be able to rotate through the corners and set you up for the straightaways. It’s definitely a lot of fun to race but also keeps you on your toes at the same time.”

Nestled 17th in the championship owner standings, Rohrbaugh is hoping to keep a steady season for his Doug George-led team going and in a better place for the upcoming Truck Series race at Circuit of the Americas later this month.

“I’m exceptionally proud of all the work done by the CR7 Motorsports team this season,” sounded Rohrbaugh. “It hasn’t been easy since the loss of Mark (Huff, team manager) at the beginning of the year, but the team has pulled together as a family unit dedicating this year to Mark and to those who support us.”

Based on metrics set by NASCAR without practice or qualifying, Rohrbaugh will lineup 25th for the 147-lap race.

CR7 Motorsports has 34 NCWTS starts to their credit with a career-best finish of third at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway (February 2020). Additionally, the team owns five other top-10 finishes at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway (fifth) in October 2020, Richmond (Va.) Raceway (sixth) in September 2020, Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway (seventh | Grant Enfinger) in March 2021, Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway (eighth) in February 2021 and Martinsville (Va.) Speedway (10th) in October 2019. An 11th place qualifying effort at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway (Oct. 2019) is the team’s best time trials effort to date.

With 15 races remaining, Rohrbaugh, 27, is 25th in the championship driver standings, just 26 points from 20th. CR7 Motorsports holds a solid 17th in the championship owner standings after seven races.

In 20 career ARCA starts, Rohrbaugh has a best finish of seventh twice at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway (July 2018 and Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway (February 2019). He has qualified a career-best fourth on four different occasions, most recently at Kansas Speedway (Oct. 2018).

Marketing partnership(s) opportunities are also available for the No. 9 Grant County Mulch Chevrolet in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, as well as the team’s ARCA Menards Series No. 97 A.L.L. Construction | Grant County Mulch Chevrolet program with driver Jason Kitzmiller for the 2021 seasons and beyond.

The LiftKits4Less.com 200 (147 laps | 200.1 miles) is the eighth of 22 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races on the 2021 schedule. The 40-truck field will take the green flag on Fri., May 7, 2021, shortly after 7:30 p.m. ET with live coverage on FOX Sports 1, the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM Satellite Radio NASCAR Channel 90.

Dawsonville, Ga. native Spencer Davis is optimistic heading into NASCAR’s annual throwback weekend at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway hoping to surge in the spotlight carry iconic colors in Friday night’s LiftKits4Less.com 200.

Davis and his family-owned Spencer Davis Motorsports team will pay tribute to NASCAR Hall of Famer Darrell Waltrip in the eighth NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race of the 2021 season.

Davis’s No. 11 Toyota Tundra will adorn the paint scheme utilized by the former NASCAR Camping World Truck Series owner and driver campaigned during the 2004 NCWTS season at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway and Lucas Oil Raceway Park, respectively.

“Darrell Waltrip has done so much for NASCAR throughout his storied career both on and off the track, I only saw it fitting that we pay tribute to him this weekend at Darlington,” said Davis. “The truck looks fantastic, and I hope that we’re able to make him and all of his race fans proud carrying this iconic paint scheme on Friday night.”

Waltrip, a three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion made 55 career starts at Darlington, collecting five wins, 18 top-five and 23 top-10 finishes at the 1.366-mile oval.

Davis, 22, will make his NCWTS Darlington debut Friday night under the lights in the LiftKits4Less.com 200 – but hopes to deliver a performance that would be a reminiscence of Waltrip’s success at the track dubbed “Too Tough To Tame.”

“Honestly, I don’t really know what to expect,” added Davis. “You can prepare yourself with simulator time and even iRacing – but nothing beats actual track time. I have also been studying film and video to try and prepare myself as best as I can and hopefully all of the analysis will pay off.

“We just have to see how that first stage goes and hopefully we keep making gains throughout the race. Obviously, Kansas didn’t go as we had hoped, but we learned a lot. If we can continue to learn though and keep making steps in the right direction, there’s no reason to get discouraged.

“I’m optimistic for my first shot at Darlington that we can come out with a top-20 finish. Anything above that would be huge for us and definitely give us some momentum for Circuit of the Americas in a few weeks.”

In February, SDM announced that INOX Supreme Lubricants will serve as the team’s primary partner this season.

INOX product range was first released in 1989 with the Original INOX MX3 Lubricant. The original MX3 product was in development stages for two years prior to release with testing and focus on creating the right product for the market.

The INOX product range continues to grow with 12 products on the market, each with its own many specialized qualities used in all different industries. All their products are tested and trialed before hitting the market to ensure the best of quality is maintained in the INOX name. INOX products are available at all major industrial, electrical, automotive, hardware, bearing and mining, marine, fishing and tackle outlets, plus many more locations.

A wholly owned Australian company Candan Industries is now exporting to over 25 countries including the United States of America, Canada, France, South Africa, New Zealand, Indonesia and Malaysia.

“Excited to have a long-time friendship turn into a season-long partnership with INOX Supreme Lubricants,” said Davis. “I can’t thank Angel and James at INOX enough for their continued support and partnership with our small team.

“We use their products day to day on our race team and in our machines at our business. A quality product and amazing people helped bring this all together.”

Based on metrics utilized to determine the starting lineup, Davis will start his 27th career Truck Series race from the 28th position.

Entering Darlington, Davis, 22, has 26 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts to his credit with a career-best finish of seventh at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in Feb. 2018, with additional top-10s at Texas Motor Speedway (June 2018) and Kentucky Speedway (July 2019).
