    Q. Was Zac Efron interested in NASCAR racing before filming At Any Price?

    A. "I was completely new to it," say Elfron, 25, whose character pursues a NASCAR career in the film (in theaters April 24.) Despite his inexperience, Elfron did his own driving. "They just put me in a car and said, "Go! At one point, I got up to 140 miles per hour. It was a rush!" Find out which star he had a childhood crush on at

    It was a polished head-turner, and the Nascar driver Denny Hamlin, in town that early March weekend for a Sprint Cup race at Phoenix International Raceway, could not help noticing. He took a picture and posted it on Twitter.

    A few days — and about $50,000 — later, he owned it, having wrapped up a quick negotiation with the owner. Hamlin then piled in some friends for an impromptu 300-mile road trip to Las Vegas for the next race in the Sprint Cup series.
    Top-down all the way.

    Logano said he learned to appreciate classic cars growing up in Connecticut. His father, Tom Logano, owned a 1962 Corvette that he let Joey drive when he was only 9 years old.
    That turned out to be a mistake when Joey asked to move the car to the front of the house before they went out for ice cream one day.
    The car had rolled off the side of the driveway, into a tree. “Totally destroyed, killed it,” Logano said, before reconsidering. “Well, I didn’t kill it, but it was pretty bad.

    And I was really happy and excited to see one of my "adopted NASCAR grand kids" win the race!

    Just what he needed after nearly running over one of his crew on the backwards pit stop.
    I just happened to be outside the track in the midway display/souvenir area when they unveiled those two cars. I got a Ford tote bag, Goody's tote bag, FedEx tshirt, Chevy tshirt, 2 can coolies, 3 small bottles of liquid Goody's, Homestead Miami frisbee, Goodyear poster & wrist sweat band, 2 small cans of Flex-Seal, Hamlin poster with custom message, a nice Subway tote bag/seat cushion, small bottle of 'Allegiant Airlines' sunblock lotion, and 3 bags of Bass Assassin lures all for free.

    Logano screams like a little girl when he wins, lol.

    Rumor mill has Tony Stewart offering Kurt Busch a ride in a 4th SHR car next year. I guess its all about the sponsor money you bring. Nascar getting to be like F1 and Indy.

    The other (more reliable) rumor is Mark Martin will fill in for Smoke the rest of the year or until Tony returns. This will let Vickers get more seat time in the 55.

    Jimmy Fennig won that championship. Kurt was just the driver. The next season his ego got so bad Roush fired him. He was fired from Penske for still being a jerk. I know he can drive, but a month ago Tony said Newman won't return to SHR because he was not expanding to 4 teams and Harvick is bringing Budweiser with him. Busch must be bringing $$$ if he is really going to be with SHR.
    The year Kurt won the Cup was 2004, first time they had 'the chase'. In '03 Kenseth won it with 1 victory. Newman had 8 victories, that is why the chase was created. Kurt would have been 4th under the old points format in '04 and Jeff Gordon would have been champ.
    I lobbied in '03 when we knew changes were coming to give 3 or 4 'mulligans' for points and score everyone's top 32 finishes to allow all races all year to figure in the title. If you missed time with injuries (concussion of Dale Jr is a good example) or get caught up in a restrictor plate crash they could all toss out the worst 3 or 4 finishes and the championship would still be fair. The new pts system is much better since 2011, but the title is just about being a hot team for 10 races.
