Since they started working together, Martin has become a consistent runner-up in all the events he participated in.

He again joined in 1990 and has lost the tile by only 26 points and 38 points in the competition that took place in 2002. Martin had to depart with Roush after the organization has announced that they can no longer go together work as a team for the 2007 twenty races, which he wanted to join in. Soon he made a part time racing schedule with Ginn Racing in 2007.

In 2006, Martin has recorded astonishing marks. He won six wins, eleven top 5s, twelve top 10s, and three pole positions. And in July, 2007, DEI has acquired the Ginn Racing and this has caused Mark Martin to join Dale Jr., Paul Menard, and Martin Truex. In 2008, the 500 Auto Club has become Martin’s 700th start. Although going stronger in 2008, there were rumors that Martin will be leaving DEI and will join Hendrick Motorsports by the season’s end.

Toyota Unleashes Redesigned 2013 Camry.1

Written by admin. Posted in NASCAR News

Toyota Motor Corp. has taken another step to boost the identity and distinction of its vehicles with the release of 2013 Camry.  The racecar, which would be driven by Kyle Busch, would banner Toyota at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. The 2013 Camry’s launch is seen as Toyota’s final initiative to make its racecar more distinct and recognizable than its competitors Ford, Dodge, and Chevrolet. To enhance car graphics and the entire look, the Toyota Racing Development and Toyota’s Calty Design Department teamed up to use streetcar’s design elements in the Camry race car edition. An official at Toyota said that the 2013 Camry appears more like a production vehicle in hopes of strengthening the relationship between NASCAR fans and manufacturers.

The 2013 Camry’s front grille was patterned after the production model, while distinct character lines mark its side. The rear bumper was updated and all of these redesign efforts made the vehicle more similar to the street Camry, which is considered the best-selling car in America. The Camry has been selling at a fast pace in America for 10 straight years. Moreover, the Kelly Blue Book hailed the 2012 Toyota Camry as the Best Redesigned Vehicle, while Cars.com called it the Most American Car. Toyota’s move is in line with NASCAR’s attempts to make its cars more exciting. This stirs the anticipation for the 2013 Camry when it hit the road at Daytona International Speedway’s “Speedweeks” in February.

Chevrolet to Roll out SS High Performance Sedan.2

Written by admin. Posted in NASCAR News

While the performance of SS is expected to be high, there are also drawbacks seen by experts. The timing of the release may be wrong, given the soaring gas prices and fuel economy standards. The SS runs on V8, meaning it is not as fuel efficient as other vehicles. However, a GM spokesman countered that the latest model won’t bring down Chevrolet’s fuel economy, as it would be sold in a limited number only. Those car enthusiasts who are willing to shell out money for such a power car are the only ones targeted by the brand, the spokesman added. With its four-door type, the SS may also be perfect for driving and racing enthusiasts with family.

 

Chevy aficionados are expected to welcome the latest model the moment it hits the market. It is seen as a part of Chevrolet’s efforts to boost its rear-wheel-drive sedan division and make a turn in the market. GM said before that V8 cars have not much of a room in the US market due to strict government rules that drive car manufacturers to focus more on fuel economy.
