    Talking in Circles: Off of Break- Silly Season News Galore!

    in Sports

    We're off our hiatus, and we're back to talk about everything in racing. 


    Also, a couple of weeks ago some changes were announced with the 5 team. The 5 team, has resigned driver, Kasey Kahne to a multi-year deal, and replaced crew chief, Kenny Francis with Keith Rodden who came over from Chip Ganassi Racing. Ganassi has hired Matt McCall to be the crew chief in 2015…. Clayton there’s a lot to dive into with all of this. First and foremost, everyone believed that Kahne would be replaced by Chase Elliott after the 2015 season. With this multi-year deal, and the current 4-car limit in NASCAR, how does Hendrick keep all of his drivers happy?


    Does one go to a different team?


    Does NASCAR lift the 4-car limit? 


    Josh Wise will also be back at Phil Parsons Racing originally reported by TheRacingExperts.com putting to bed any rumors of him driving for another race team in 2015.


     Martin Truex Jr will have a new cc in 2015, as Todd Berrier will be reassigned within the organization and has been replaced by former driver Cole Pearn. Pearn has been a race engineer with the team since 2012. We'll talk about this.


    Cole Whitt is on his way to Front Row Motorsports. BK Racing co-owner Anthony Marlowe, tweeted that Whitt would be in the number 34 car. We have no learned that that's not entirely the case, but Whitt is still going to Front Row Motorsports. We'll discuss this move, and what car number he may be driving. 


    Also, JR Motorsports have finally announced their crew chief lineup as Dave Elenz will be with the 88 car. Elenz will replace Ernie Cope who is at the 9 now. Jason Burdett will take over at the number 7 car with driver, Regan Smith. We'll talk about these changes as well. All tonight on Talking in Circles.

    Talking in Circles: Homestead Review; Kevin Harvick wins 2014 NSCS Championship

    in Sports

    Kevin Harvick wins the Ford EcoBoost 400 @ Homestead-Miami Speedway. 28th career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, and the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship.


    Harvick wins his first championship in his first season at SHR coming over from RCR. Harvick and Childers were impressive this year, and were really good early and later on in the season, which was enough to win in this format. 


    Ryan Newman finishes second in the race and in the championship race as he comes up just short. Newman took 2 tires on the secon to last pit stop, and that made the difference, when Harvick had 4 fresh tires on the restart, and had the advantage. 


    Joey Logano hit the wall, and then got some more damage as his championship dreams dwindled down and which costed him a shot at is as well.


    Denny Hamlin was left out there with no tires, and originally did look like the right decision initially. It turned out to be a bad one, but that's part of the game. 


    All of that and much more, plus Dominic Aragon from TheRacingExperts.com will join the show as well.
