Last hurrah: Homestead will be the 803rd, and final race in the Busch Series, since the series inception in 1982. This concludes a Series sponsorship that has lasted 26 years. Carl Edwards is the 19th driver to win a championship in the 26th season of the NASCAR Busch Series. This is only the second NBS title for a Ford driver. (Greg Biffle, 2002). Owner's title goes to RCR: The #29 car of RCR will clinch the 2007 owner’s championship if the #29 car starts the race at Homestead. It will be his fourth NBS owner title; he won in 2001, 2003, and 2006. This title will be the 11th NASCAR Owner championship for Childress (six Cup, four NBS, one NCTS) In 2003, Richard Childress’ #21 car with drivers Kevin Harvick and Johnny Sauter won the owners championship while Brian Vickers won the driver’s championship. This is the only other time in Busch Series history that the champion owner and driver had come from different teams. (NASCAR PR) (11-13-07)

Truck Race Takes Center Stage at Homestead
SPEED Press Release



For the 12th time in 13 seasons, the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series title fight is coming down to the final race of the season, as only 29 points separate former champions Mike Skinner (1995) and Ron Hornaday Jr. (’96, ’98) heading into Friday night’s race at Homestead.

With the NASCAR Busch Series title long since decided and defending champ Jimmie Johnson leading Hendrick teammate Jeff Gordon by nearly 90 points for the Nextel Cup title, the Truck Series battle is now the undeniable headliner for NASCAR Championship Week in South Florida. Skinner vs. Hornaday. Toyota vs. Chevy.

“I think if someone knew why the Truck Series championship always goes down to the last race of the year, they would build it into the Busch Series and fix their points battle situation,” said Krista Voda, host of the SPEED NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series pre-race show NCTS Setup. “I think the Truck Series has such a phenomenal battle because of the level of competition across the board. Even the Cup drivers who come into the Truck Series to race for a few select events say the same thing.

“It’s just so competitive,” Voda added. “The level of teams doesn’t drop off across the board as much (as they do in the other series) and it’s pretty level across the playing field. There’s not the A, B and C levels of teams that you tend to see in the Cup Series. Also, there are so many guys with experience under their belts. You’ve got the older guys who know how to save their trucks and be patient, and so many guys at the end of the race who haven’t fallen off, as well. The younger guys are learning every week and have become contenders by season’s end.”

So, as another close NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series season comes to an end, who has the advantage and what will make the difference?

“The ‘X’ factor for this race will be help from teammates,” said SPEED pit reporter Ray Dunlap. “We saw at Phoenix that Hornaday got some help from Kevin Harvick and Harvick will be in the Homestead race again. From my viewpoint, Hornaday and Skinner have raced each other all year long, so let them race each other only at the end. But it’s a business, as well, and you’ve got to look at doing whatever you can to get that championship for your sponsors. I just hope that one of those ancillary trucks entered doesn’t make a difference in who wins the title. I hope Mike and Ron can race each other and let the best man win.”

SPEED’s Adam Alexander, who joined the SPEED on-air team full time this season, agrees Harvick (Hornaday’s truck owner and teammate) just may be a factor.

“Kevin is going to be in the Homestead race and we all saw at Phoenix how Kevin being in the race can impact things,” Alexander said. “I don’t think he’s going to do anything crazy like take out Skinner, but I think he’s going to do everything he can to play mind games with the No. 5 team to make sure they earn the championship. Whoever wins will probably celebrate more than they would winning the title another way because Skinner and Hornaday have really gone back and forth this year. This has been as classic a battle for a championship as you can have.”

Added Voda: “Friday’s race at Homestead is going to be crazy. Look at what happened at Phoenix -- Hornaday cut that 57-point gap down to 29 points. Both drivers are good at any track. Leading a lap is going to be huge, so qualifying is going to be important and the first lap is going to be important. The pit stops are going to be crucial. Everything is just so heightened that you can’t miss a single second. You can’t step away from the TV for one second because that could be the moment that Skinner falters or Hornaday jumps into the lead. It’s going to be so exciting that I wish it was tomorrow. I can’t wait.”

While Alexander gives the advantage to Skinner, SPEED’s Rick Allen isn’t so sure: “I think the points lead will bounce back and forth two or three times during the Homestead race and will come down to the final five or 10 laps where we won’t know who the champion is going to be until the checkered flag waves.”

Kluever hoping for second chance in NASCAR
SCENEDAILY - 5:10PM ET TUESDAY NOVEMBER 6, 2007 - BY BOB POCKRASS - ASSOCIATE EDITOR
 

 
After showing lots of promise driving a truck in 2005, Todd Kluever was originally penciled in to replace Mark Martin in the No. 6 Nextel Cup car in 2007.

Now it's the end of 2007, and with only four career starts in Nextel Cup, the Roush Fenway Racing driver is looking for a ride.

 
"I always believed that once I got the chance, no matter what happens, I could be happy," Kluever said in a phone interview Tuesday. "Part of me believes that's true. But another part of me [thinks] now that I've had that chance, I believe I can compete at that level and I'm just looking for the opportunity to do that.

"Things didn't work out at Roush, and that's part of life. You look at how many guys that have had great careers that didn't work out the first place they were at. Now that I've had my chance, I am more hungry to prove that I belong."

Kluever had an impressive beginning at Roush Racing when he won the "Gong Show" in 2004 and then finished 11th in points in the Craftsman Truck Series in 2005. Kluever had seven top-10 finishes in the final 16 races of the 2005 truck season and posted three second-place finishes.

He started off decent in a Busch Series car in 2006 with a seventh at Daytona and 12th in California but didn't keep the momentum and ended up 17th in points. He made four of the seven Nextel Cup races he attempted in 2006, but David Ragan ended up taking over the No. 6 car for 2007.

"I really wanted to stay with that [truck] situation one more year, but then things got put on the speed track when Kurt [Busch] said he was leaving and Mark [Martin] was retiring and they needed some drivers to fill some seats," Kluever said. "At that point, I had proved that I could compete. Obviously, Jack Roush believed it at that time, and at that point it was the sky's the limit."

With a rookie crew chief and a rookie engineer on his 2006 Busch team, Kluever said the team just needed time to work together. They had two top-10 finishes in the final three races and Kluever hoped that would be a spark for this season. He shared a Busch ride this year with Greg Biffle and has one top-10 in 17 starts. His best career Busch finish was that seventh at Daytona.

"It's just so hard to be a part-time driver and compete against guys who race so much," Kluever said. "I'm just looking to get back into a full-time gig and go racing again. I know I can do it. I still very much believe that."

The 29-year-old Kluever said it wouldn't matter to him if it was a truck or Nationwide (formerly Busch) ride in 2008.

"I'll always be thankful to Jack Roush and [team president] Geoff Smith for giving me an opportunity," he said. "I was 26 years old when they took a chance on me, and that is pretty uncommon anymore for teams to do. I'll always be forever grateful to them.

"As a kid, I dreamed about racing on Sunday and I got to do that. There are a lot of people in this world who don't get that opportunity that deserve it."

Now he's looking to try to make the dream end well. His best finish in four Cup races was 32nd at Kansas.

"Once you get your chance, the frustrating part becomes did it go how you wanted it to or what would you do different?" Kluever said. "When it doesn't work out the way you dreamed it to ... there's no way I can be happy because things didn't work out they were supposed to."




I hope Todd can find a sponsor and a team that will give him a ride, if it can't be with Roush.

Broken spring could be costly for Kenseth's Busch team
SCENEDAILY - 2:11PM ET SUNDAY NOVEMBER 11, 2007 - BY BOB POCKRASS - ASSOCIATE EDITOR


 
JASON SMITH / GETTY IMAGESAVONDALE, Ariz. - A broken left front spring caused the No. 17 Roush Racing Ford driven by Matt Kenseth to be too high in the right rear during postrace inspection following the Arizona.Travel 200 Busch Series race Saturday at Phoenix International Raceway.

Kenseth finished second in the race. His team faces possible points and monetary penalties from being outside the NASCAR specifications. NASCAR likely will announce any penalties Tuesday.

 
"It had a broken spring, a broken coil," team owner Jack Roush said Sunday morning. "It's not clear at all what, if any, punitive action NASCAR will take. You're going to break parts sometime.

"That is a part that we ran in that car at this race track in the winter. We haven't broken a Draco spring all year. Parts break. We broke a part."

This Week In Ford Racing: NNCS Driver Greg Biffle
Campbell & Company For Ford Racing, Press Release

Greg Biffle, driver of No. 16 Dish Network Ford Fusion, will go to Ford Championship Weekend looking to win his fourth straight Ford 400. Biffle, whose only Nextel Cup victory this year came at Kansas in September, spoke about trying to extend his Homestead-Miami Speedway win streak.
GREG BIFFLE - No. 16 Dish Network Ford Fusion -

HAVE YOU EVER WON FOUR EVENTS IN A ROW AT ANY LEVEL OF RACING?
"The only thing I've done like that is I won four late model events in a row at Tri-Cities Speedway, but that wasn't as near the competition of the Nextel Cup Series. We won 17 out of 19 races at one track when I won the championship. We won a lot of race there, but never anything other than that, so it would be pretty special for us."

ARE YOU TAKING THE KANSAS CAR TO HOMESTEAD?

"Yeah, we were slated to take the Kansas car once it came out of the last race OK. We planned on taking that car no matter what, so that's our focus right now."

DO YOU FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOUR CHANCES OF MAKING IT FOUR STRAIGHT?
"Oh yeah, absolutely. That car has been really fast everywhere we've taken it and I'm real positive that we can at least challenge for that fourth win in a row."

THE FACT IT'S THE FORD 400, DOES THAT PROVIDE A BIT MORE INCENTIVE?

"Absolutely. I think Ford swept the weekend last year and we'd certainly love to do that again. It would be pretty special for us and winning the last race before the off-season is pretty cool, too."

YOU'VE WON ON BOTH HOMESTEAD CONFIGURATIONS. CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THE TRACK ITSELF?
"That kind of race track is so much fun. It's progressive banking. You can run on the bottom, the middle and the top, but it's not as fast as the mile-and-a-halves we normally go to and it has a little bit longer sweeping corners. It drives a little bit more like a medium-sized short track - sort of like Phoenix as far as corner entry into three. That's another thing that makes it fun. We've run everywhere like at Atlanta, but this race track has a little slower corner speed, so it's a little more technical."

Ford 300 - Marcos Ambrose Notes

AMBROSE LOOKS TO CEMENT TOP 10 POINTS POSITION IN SEASON FINALE AT HOMESTEAD


Marcos Ambrose faces his final challenge of the 2007 NASCAR Busch Series with the Ford 300 on Ford Championship Weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway in Homestead, Florida this weekend.

Ambrose currently sits eighth in the NASCAR Busch Series standings in the #59 Kingsford Charcoal Ford Fusion and is on the verge of achieving a major goal for his rookie year in the NASCAR Busch Series – to finish in the top 10 in the series standings.

The Australian comes into this event after a strong comeback performance at Phoenix International Raceway, which gave Ambrose his sixth Raybestos Rookie of the Race Award for the season.

Homestead is a fast and wide 1.5-mile oval and one that Ambrose is looking forward to as NASCAR celebrates the final event of the season for all three national championship divisions.

Ambrose and the #59 crew from Wood Brothers/JTG Racing are quietly pleased about this year’s progress but are determined to finish the season with a strong result in Florida to cement Ambrose’s top 10 position in the points as well as give the team momentum for the off-season as the team prepares for 2008.

Marcos Ambrose – #59 Kingsford Charcoal Ford Fusion “At the start of the year a big goal of ours was to finish the season in the top 10 in Driver’s Points and coming into Homestead we have that in our sights,” said Ambrose.

“We will be pushing very hard and giving it everything we have got to finish the year strongly to keep us in the top 10.

“Homestead really has an end of season feel and it’s a good track to end the year.

“We only race there once a year so when you run at Homestead it always feels special because everyone is looking forward to going there and there is a real party atmosphere around the event.

“The progressive banking through the turns is good for the racing and it’s a track you can really drive hard. It’s also quite different to drive down the back straight and see the palm trees flashing past – you definitely you know you’re in Florida.

“I think we are strong on all race tracks now and after the things we have achieved this year I’m determined to finish my first season in the NASCAR Busch Series on a good note.

“It’s been a good season for us. I feel we have left a little bit out there on the race track but I feel comfortable and like I belong here and have made progress.

“I want to finish the year strongly to give us a boost as we put in hard work over the off-season. We have some exciting plans for the #59 Kingsford team next year and I’m already keen to get back into next season.”

Ford 300 - Greg Biffle Notes

Greg Biffle
Homestead Busch Fast Facts

Fast Facts:

Greg Biffle has three top-five, four top-10 finishes and one pole in the Busch Series at Homestead in seven starts.
Biffle has completed 88.9 percent (1247 of 1403) of the laps in his Busch races at Homestead. His average starting position is 15.6 and finishing position is 15.1.
Biffle has led 158 laps in a Busch car at Homestead.
Biffle will be racing RK-347. This car nearly won at Texas two weeks ago. Biffle was leading with 35 laps to go when he thought he had a flat tire, resulting in a 16th-place finish.
Although Biffle has never won a Busch race at Homestead, he has won the last three consecutive NEXTEL Cup races there.

GREG BIFFLE
Team: No. 16 3M Ford Fusion
Owner: Jack Roush
Crew Chief: Eddie Pardue
Chassis: RK-347 – this car last ran at Texas earlier this month where it finished 16th

Biffle on racing in Homestead:
“I love racing at Homestead. Although I’ve never won a Busch race there, I have won the last three Cup races in a row, so hopefully that will carry over to the Busch car this weekend. I still can’t believe this team has not won a Busch race this year. We’ve been so close so many times and we always seem to have something go wrong. Last week at Phoenix we had a strong car, but got caught in a wreck on a restart. This is our last chance to get a win for 3M and the guys on this team before the season ends. We’ve got the same car that should have won at Texas two weeks ago, so hopefully it will be just as strong at Homestead.”

Crew chief Eddie Pardue on racing in Homestead:“Greg has won a Busch race every year for the past six years, so our goal this weekend is to keep that streak going for him. There have been at least three, or four races that we thought we had in the bag this year until bad luck came our way. Hopefully this will be our weekend. We’ve got the car, driver and pit crew, now we just need the good luck.”
