    Allmendinger In Penske No. 2 For Indy 500

    “It is exciting to welcome A.J. back to Penske Racing,” said Roger Penske. “He obviously went through a tough time last year but he has done everything he needed to in order to get back to racing at the top level of the sport. We have always believed in AJ and his ability and he deserves this opportunity. We think he will be a strong competitor this season in the IZOD IndyCar Series for Team Penske and we look forward to racing with him in the IZOD car at Barber and at the Indianapolis 500.”

    Kyle Larson nearly passed Kyle Busch for the win in Nationwide at Bristol last week.
    This week he is in Calif. and in his spare time won a World of Outlaws race in Stockton last night.
    He starts 9th in the Nationwide race at 5pm today.

    Martinsville has Trucks, and kids are racing them.

    [​IMG]

    Chase Elliott, who is 17 and the son of 1988 Cup Series champion Bill Elliott, will pilot the No. 94 Aaron's/Hendrickcars.com Chevrolet as he attempts to qualify for his first of nine scheduled races this season, Saturday's Kroger 250.

    Erik Jones, 16, will drive the No. No. 51 Toyota for owner Kyle Busch, the driver he defeated in this year's Snowball Derby. The truck Jones will drive has already seen Victory Lane at Martinsville. Denny Hamlin drove chassis No. 134 to the win last October.

    Other young drivers scheduled to make their first start this weekend are Devin Jones, 16, and Grant Galloway, 18.

    That's unreal! Such young guys, actually teenagers, in these races! Most states you have to be even 16 to drive. And amazing that corporate sponsors and race teams invest big money and time with them.
