president & General manager

Eddie Gossage

President and General Manager, TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY

It only seems appropriate, according to Speedway Motorsports, Inc. Chairman Bruton Smith, that “The Great American Speedway!” is guided by “America’s Greatest Racing Promoter.” Smith anointed Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage with that flattering title and considering the speedway mogul’s half century in motorsports it resonates as the ultimate compliment. Gossage, who always has considered Smith his mentor, has benefitted from that relationship to develop into the most innovative and successful speedway executive in motorsports today. He pioneered the construction and debut of Texas Motor Speedway in the 1990s and steadily built the venue into one of the premier speedways in the world. Texas Motor Speedway annually hosts the largest single-day sporting events in the Lone Star State with two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races, in addition to two NASCAR Nationwide Series and Camping World Truck Series races and an IZOD IndyCar Series event. Under Gossage’s leadership through the years, Texas Motor Speedway has: • Hosted the largest single-day crowd in Texas sports history • Created the first Preferred Seat License and season ticket plans in motorsports • Created a free special season ticket-holder event known as “Fandango” • Promoted some of the country’s largest music festivals • Staged the first-ever nighttime Indy-car race • Annually attracted among the largest crowds of the season for all the major series that compete at the speedway

Gossage, a native of Nashville, Tenn., has been involved in motorsports since 1980 and his diverse experience in all major forms of auto racing has molded him into one of the most influential executives in professional sports. He began his motorsports career as the public relations director of Nashville International Raceway in 1980. After one season, he was transferred by National Raceways, Inc. (owners of the Nashville venue) to serve as manager of the company’s other speedway, Bristol International Raceway (now Bristol Motor Speedway). In 1983, the Miller Brewing Company hired Gossage to manage the Milwaukee-based company’s expansive motorsports public relations program. He became a fixture in American motorsports in NASCAR, Indy car, drag racing, sports car racing and unlimited hydroplane racing. Gossage returned to his speedway roots in 1989 when he was named vice president of public relations for Charlotte Motor Speedway. During his tenure, the speedway staged the first-ever nighttime superspeedway race, increased its seating capacity by more than 20 percent and Speedway Motorsports, Inc. (SMI) went public on the New York Stock

Exchange. Gossage was handpicked by Smith in 1995 to be the guiding force for his new stateof-the-art facility in Fort Worth, Texas, that would debut in 1997. Today, Texas Motor Speedway is considered one of the premier motorsports venues in the world and continues to be one of the most innovative and creative under Gossage’s guidance. Gossage also has been influential in the career starts for many of the top executives and talent in the sport today. As manager of Bristol Motor Speedway in the early 1980s, Gossage helped a local radio advertising salesman land his first job in motorsports when he assisted Mike Helton in becoming the public relations director at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Today, Helton is the president of NASCAR. Others who have worked for Gossage through the years include New Hampshire Motor Speedway Executive Vice President/General Manager Jerry Gappens; Zoom Motorsports/Barber Motorsports Park Vice President Rick Humphrey; Las Vegas Motor Speedway Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing Kevin Camper; Las Vegas Motor Speedway Vice President of Operations David Stetzer; and Penske Racing team publicist Tom Roberts, among others. Gossage remains heavily involved in Speedway Children’s Charities – serving on the board of directors – as well as within the community with positions on the boards for the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce, Fort Worth Convention and Visitors Bureau, Northwest Independent School District Foundation, and the Board of Professional Advisors for the College of Mass Communications at Middle Tennessee State University. Gossage, a graduate of Middle Tennessee State University, resides with his wife, Melinda, on Eagle Mountain Lake in Fort Worth, Texas.

FACILITY OVERVIEW

“The Great American Speedway!”

8

Texas Motor Speedway became part of the motorsports landscape in 1997 and the venue has made an indelible impression over the course of its relatively modest existence. While race tracks such as Daytona International Speedway and Indianapolis Motor Speedway have cultivated a rich tradition and heritage over the course of time, Texas Motor Speedway already has garnered its place among the elite as it enters just its 16th season of racing.

celebration is unlike any other in our sport. It’s an honor for me to be the first repeat Cup winner at TMS and have my name engraved twice on the Wall of Champions.” Texas Motor Speedway, with an overall capacity in excess of 190,000, is among the largest sports stadiums in America and the enormity of the Fort Worth venue is no better exemplified by the fact that four Cowboys Stadiums, home of the Dallas Cowboys, can fit inside. The facility also boasts a large array of amenities that once were foreign to speedways across the country.

When there is mention of the “Big Four” in terms of motorsports venues of prestige, Texas Motor Speedway has taken its place alongside Daytona, Indianapolis and Charlotte Motor Speedway. A triumph at Texas Motor Speedway is accompanied by an air of distinction and accomplishment for drivers and teams. And a Victory Lane celebration with cowboy hats, six-shooter pistols and the driver’s name being engraved for the Wall of Champions is unparalleled. Jeff Burton, a two-time Sprint Cup winner at Texas Motor Speedway, explained the significance of winning a race at “The Great American Speedway!” “Texas Motor Speedway is the shining example of how a speedway should be run,” Burton said. “From start to finish, TMS does everything first class. The Victory Lane

Texas Motor Speedway is home to 144 luxury suites; the Lone Star Tower, which houses condominiums and office space; and the members-only Speedway Club, which features fine dining, a health club with salon and spa services, and an expansive ballroom. As a result of its everexpanding and progressive menu of fan amenities, Texas Motor Speedway has become a model for other speedways to follow and emulate. No wonder it was given the tag, “The Great American Speedway!” Texas Motor Speedway showcases a 1.5-mile oval with 24-degree banking in the turns and caters primarily to stock cars, trucks and open-wheel racing. The speedway currently plays host to two races each in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Nationwide Series and Camping World Truck Series, and one IZOD IndyCar Series event.

2012 Spring/Summer Media Guide


FACILITY OVERVIEW The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series events, held annually in April and November, are routinely the largest sporting events in the state of Texas and among the top-20 largest single-day events in the United States. Over the course of a NASCAR weekend, an estimated 400,000 spectators will attend, transforming Texas Motor Speedway into the seventh-largest city in the great state of Texas.

And just like the major sports teams in the area – the Dallas Cowboys, Mavericks, Stars and Texas Rangers – Texas Motor Speedway continually made moves and improvements each year. It may not have resulted in a championship like some of those local sports franchises achieved, but it did result in the facility being situated among the upper echelon of sports venues. The saying goes, “Everything is bigger in Texas,” and Texas Motor Speedway is no exception.

How TMS became “The Great American Speedway!”

A NASCAR race week also has a major economic impact on the Dallas/Fort Worth area, especially when it is compared to a marquee sports event such as the Super Bowl. A Super Bowl is worth approximately $90 million in tourism-related spending to the host city. And that spending is equal to one NASCAR event, so with Texas Motor Speedway playing host to two NASCAR weekends it is equivalent to having this area hosting two Super Bowls annually. The IZOD IndyCar Series, which also has been a part of Texas Motor Speedway since it opened in 1997, draws its largest crowd of the season outside of the Indianapolis 500 at TMS. Crowds in excess of 85,000 have routinely enjoyed the thrilling racing and close finishes in “America’s Original Nighttime IndyCar Race.” Texas Motor Speedway has played host to the series championship finale, the infamous Victory Lane tussle between A.J. Foyt and Arie Luyendyk in the inaugural 1997 season, and in 2011 was the site of the series first twin-race event. Texas Motor Speedway has drawn enormous crowds since opening its gates in 1997, but just like an expansion team in professional sports the facility endured its share of obstacles as well as etched memorable moments into its history. Rain, traffic and other struggles did not dampen the spirits of race fans, who made their way to Texas Motor Speedway for the inaugural Interstate Batteries 500. A sellout crowd in excess of 200,000 officially put Dallas/Fort Worth and the state of Texas on the rapidly growing NASCAR map.

Many would be led to believe that Texas Motor Speedway utilized the resources of an innovative marketing agency to create the moniker, “The Great American Speedway!” But, actually, it was the resourcefulness of a copy editor at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that spurred the nickname for Texas Motor Speedway. In the July 12, 2000, edition of the Star-Telegram, veteran motorsports reporter John Sturbin wrote an article on the sports front touting the addition of a CART race to the upcoming 2001 Texas Motor Speedway race schedule that would ultimately elevate the status of the facility because it would play host to every major American racing series. Playing off the reporter’s theme, the headline read, “The Great American Speedway: CART race in May gives TMS a 2001 sweep of U.S. circuits.” With Texas Motor Speedway planning to play host to stock car’s three premier series (NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series, Nationwide Series and Camping World Truck Series), open-wheel’s two major rival series (IZOD IndyCar Series, Championship Auto Racing Teams FedEx Championship Series) and road racing’s American Le Mans Series and TransAm Series, speedway president Eddie Gossage couldn’t resist running with “The Great American Speedway!” to provide the facility with its own unique identity. In 2001, Texas Motor Speedway officially adopted “The Great American Speedway!” slogan, incorporating it into a new track logo and submitting it for trademark. And it has remained Texas Motor Speedway’s signature slogan and logo ever since.

TEXAS TRADITIONS

Victory Lane – Texas Style Texas Motor Speedway showcases one of the most unique Victory Lane celebrations in the world of motorsports. The post-race celebration focuses on the icons of the Lone Star State and no one will ever wonder where the victory celebration took place. The Samsung Mobile 500 Trophy – more simply known as the Boot Trophy – features a pair of handcarved cowboy boots with the Speedway Motorsports, Inc. globe logo that sits on the double-tiered wooden base with two longhorn steer heads. The hand-painted trophy, produced by Bruce Fox, Inc. of New Albany, Ind., includes a pair of genuine and specially designed spurs for the wooden boots. The trophy debuted in 2002 and the first to raise it was Matt Kenseth. Prior to the boot trophy, a replica of the Fort Worth Cup was used from 1997 to 2001.

The AAA Texas 500 Trophy features a sterling silver cowboy hat on a black base with the SMI logo and Texas stars. The trophy also has a specially designed leather hat band that includes silver SMI logos and stars in the design. The trophy debuted in 2005 with the inaugural Dickies 500, which was won by Carl Edwards.

2012 Spring/Summer Media Guide


TEXAS TRADITIONS The Foyt-Rutherford Trophy, named after Texas racing icons A.J. Foyt and Johnny Rutherford, debuted in 2000 for the annual June IZOD IndyCar Series race after three years of different style trophies. This trophy was first hoisted by Scott Sharp after winning the Casino Magic 500k in June of 2000. The crystal trophy, given annually to the winners of the Firestone Twin 275s, comes from the Czech Republic, where it is hand blown and takes nearly 140 hours to create. The arches on the top of the trophy represent the Alamo, and the six arches represent the six flags that have flown over the state of Texas. Continuing a tradition that began in 2003, the winning driver, owner and crew members receive Charlie 1 Horse cowboy hats to wear in Victory Lane and have as a keepsake. In keeping with Texas cowboy hat etiquette, straw hats are given out for the spring and summer events (Samsung Mobile 500, Firestone Twin 275s) and felt for the fall (AAA Texas 500). In addition, the winning Sprint Cup and IZOD IndyCar Series drivers fire a pair of Turnbull 45 Colt-style single-action revolvers with ivory grips during the post-race celebration. The tradition began at the April Cup race in 2005 and the first to fire the pistols was Greg Biffle. Turnbull Manufacturing Co. also awards the pole winner for the NASCAR Sprint Cup events at TMS (Samsung Mobile 500, AAA Texas 500) a Turnbull model 1886 deluxe take down rifle. The rifle features a gold-colored inlaid panel on the butt stock, custom engraved with Texas Motor Speedway’s logo and tagline, “The Great American Speedway!” The tradition began when Ryan Newman was presented with the award in April of 2005. While the celebration is ongoing, the closing ceremony of Victory Lane is near completion. Similar to the British Open champion’s name being etched onto the Claret Jug during the final hole, an engraver is busy at work in Victory Lane etching the winner’s name onto a metal plate that will be affixed to the Wall of Champions during the celebration. The race winner then uses a pair of drill guns – specially painted by sports artist David Arrigo to resemble six-shooters – to fasten his name to the Wall of Champions (which lists all the former winners at TMS) and officially become part of Texas Motor Speedway history on the spot. The first to do so was Kasey Kahne following the 2006 Samsung 500. 2012 Spring/Summer Media Guide

The location at the intersection of Interstate 35 West and Texas State Highway 114 was also chosen for its accessibility for the fans. • April 11, 1995 – Bruton Smith is assisted by Bobby Labonte, Jeff Gordon and Terry Labonte in the groundbreaking ceremony for the speedway. • August 18, 1995 – Construction begins at Texas Motor Speedway. • May 1, 1996 – The Texas Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities is formed, naming Betty Rutherford, wife of three-time Indy 500 winner Johnny Rutherford, as president. • July 24, 1996 – Ground is broken on the Lone Star Tower condominiums outside of Turn 2. • April 4, 1997 – Texas Motor Speedway officials announce plans to build The Speedway Club, a nine-story building located above Turn 1 of the 1.5-mile speedway. • April 5, 1997 – Mark Martin, driving the No. 60 WinnDixie Ford, wins the inaugural NASCAR Nationwide Series Coca-Cola 300. • April 6, 1997 – Jeff Burton, driving the No. 99 Exide Batteries Ford, wins the inaugural NASCAR Sprint Cup Interstate Batteries 500 in front of a sellout crowd in excess of 200,000. • June 6, 1997 – Kenny Irwin Jr. becomes the inaugural winner of the Pronto Auto Parts 400 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race. • June 7, 1997 – Texas Motor Speedway plays host to the first-ever nighttime IndyCar race, the True Value 500k Indy Racing League event.

Go to www.smicredentials. com to apply for credentials for TMS events as well as those at other SMI-owned speedways. Please note that approval for an account does not mean you have been approved for credentials for an event. Once you receive approval for an account, you must complete the second step of applying for the credential. Media who have already registered need not register again. Written, fax, or email requests will not be accepted. Credentials and parking can be picked up at the speedway credential office, which is located directly behind the speedway ticket office.

The most common media access credentials are “PI” (Pit/Infield) and “GPI” (Grandstand/Pit/Infield). Garage passes are required for access to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series garage. Respective series hard cards will be honored in both garages as well. Media Center access: “MC” credential designation allows access into the infield media center and media center lounge (located between media center and café). “PB” credential designation allows access into infield media center, deadline room, press box and media center lounge.

Not all phone jacks in the deadline room are activated. Please make sure that the jack you are using has either a “green” or “red” dot located above the jack.

Photographers who do not return their vest will have their credentials revoked for subsequent races. Vests are available to credentialed photographers only. Photographers that do not adhere to the procedures reviewed during the mandatory photo meetings will have their credentials revoked. There are reserved spots in Victory Lane for traveling photographers and select newspapers. If your publication does not have a reserved spot, you may fill in the spaces around the reserved spots. Please be respectful of the other photographers and if you have any questions or concerns please see a TMS Media Relations representative. PHOTO SERVICE

SPEEDWAY CHILDREN’S CHARITIES

Speedway Children’s Charities Speedway Children’s Charities was founded in 1982 by Bruton Smith, chairman of Speedway Motorsports, Inc. and Sonic Automotive, who wanted to give back to the community. In 1990, Major General Thomas Sadler, USAF (ret.) was appointed executive director to help facilitate the growth of the charity. Speedway Children’s Charities (SCC) is a non-profit organization based in Charlotte, N.C., that distributes funds to charities and foundations providing educational, financial, social and medical need in order to help children lead productive lives. SCC’s priority is improving the quality of life for children in need, and this mission has remained the same throughout its history. From mentoring programs to camps for special needs children, SCC best affects children’s lives by supporting organizations that work tirelessly to see that children’s needs are met and that no child is left behind regardless of illness, social environment or disability. SCC has grown over the years from one chapter to a nationally recognized charity with chapters located at Speedway Motorsports facilities including Atlanta, Bristol, Charlotte, Infineon, Kentucky, Las Vegas, New Hampshire and Texas in addition to volunteer chapters in Washington D.C. and Tampa, Fla. Speedway Children’s Charities plays host to a wide range of events and promotions geared around race weeks at the speedways. Grant requests are accepted from qualified non-profit organizations. These requests are submitted annually to each individual chapter’s board of trustees for evaluation. Each board’s objective is to assist as many children as possible. In 2011 the organization ushered in a historic mark by surpassing the $8 million mark in grants distributed to local charities since its inception in 1997. Speedway Children’s Charities – Texas Chapter was of the 10 national chapters to reach the mark. For the first time in 2009, Speedway Children’s Charities – Texas Chapter established special Founder’s Grants that were awarded to non-profit organizations in the four North Texas counties it serves – Collin, Dallas, Denton and Tarrant. The grants, ranging from $125,000 to $150,000, are targeted to assist those organizations with major capital projects. Speedway Children’s Charities – Texas Chapter has gone on to present eight different organizations with a Founder’s Grant, most recently awarding the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Fort Worth with a $125,000 grant to help fund an expansive playground project. In 2011, Speedway Children’s Charities – Texas Chapter distributed more than $800,000 to 23 Dallas/Fort Worth organizations.

Each April during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekend at Texas Motor Speedway, a new class is enshrined during a special ceremony. Thirteen individuals have been honored since its inception, all receiving a special pedestal highlighting their career stats and accomplishments which are housed in the hall of fame atrium. Along with the inductions, other special honors are awarded including the Bruton Smith Legend Award – a lifetime achievement award given to an individual that has impacted motorsports; the Texas Motor Speedway Racer of the Year given to the most outstanding performer during the previous season at “The Great American Speedway!”; and the Texas Motor Speedway Sportsmanship Award.

SPRING RACE PREVIEW

Samsung Mobile 500 Saturday, April 14

The Samsung Mobile 500 is the seventh race of the 36-event NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season and the first of two Cup races at Texas Motor Speedway. This will be the 16th edition of this spring event that began in the inaugural 1997 season for Texas Motor Speedway. The Samsung Mobile 500 on April 9, 2011, was the first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series night race held at Texas Motor Speedway, and the evening belonged to Matt Kenseth, who put on a dominating performance by leading 169 of 334 laps en route to a victory that snapped a 76-race winless streak. The win was the second for Kenseth at Texas Motor Speedway, his first coming in 2002.

FALL RACE PREVIEW

AAA Texas 500 Sunday, Nov. 4 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Event

The AAA Texas 500 is the 34th race in the 36-event NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season and the eighth race in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, the 10-event race-off that determines the series champion. This will be the eighth edition of the fall event at TMS, which made its debut during the 2005 season. The AAA Texas 500 on Nov. 6, 2011, added to the drama of one of NASCAR’s most historic championship battles that featured NASCAR superstars Tony Stewart and Carl Edwards. Stewart led 173 of 334 laps to earn the victory – one of his five victories during the Chase that allowed him to inch within three points of Edwards, who finished second in the AAA Texas 500 – to set up a dramatic battle between the duo in the final two races of the season in which Stewart eventually prevailed.

Tony Stewart

Race Recap

The AAA Texas 500 once again proved to be pivotal in the 10-race Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup as Tony Stewart (No. 14 Office Depot/Mobil 1 Chevrolet) and Carl Edwards heated up their epic championship battle at Texas Motor Speedway. Stewart was able to prevail, leading 173 of 334 laps en route to his second career victory at “The Great American Speedway!” Although the win didn’t allow Stewart to overtake Edwards, who finished second, it did allow him to cut the championship points deficit to three with two races remaining. The AAA Texas 500 marked a three-race stretch where Stewart and Edwards finished no worse than third and ultimately it was Stewart who would prevail for his third Sprint Cup Series championship on the strength of his five victories in the Chase.

Denny Hamlin

Race Recap

Denny Hamlin (No. 11 FedEx Office Toyota) joined Carl Edwards as the only drivers to complete a single-season sweep of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at Texas Motor Speedway with his victory in the AAA Texas 500. Hamlin, who won the Samsung Mobile 500 in April for his first career win at TMS, held off Matt Kenseth in a three-lap sprint to the finish. Hamlin’s victory allowed him to overtake Jimmie Johnson, the defending four-time Sprint Cup champion, in the Chase standings. It marked the first time since 2005 that Johnson was not atop the points standings with two races left in the Chase. The competition was highlighted by a track-record 33 lead changes, surpassing the previous mark of 29 that was set in 2000 and matched in April’s Samsung Mobile 500.

Race Recap

Denny Hamlin (No. 11 FedEx Ground Toyota), just weeks removed from ACL surgery, earned his first victory at Texas Motor Speedway in the rain-delayed Samsung Mobile 500. Hamlin held off runner-up Jimmie Johnson by 0.152 seconds for the second-closest Sprint Cup Series finish in TMS history. Hamlin, who started 29th, moved into position for the win when defending race winner Jeff Gordon, who led a race-high 124 laps, was involved in a nine-car accident on Lap 319 of 334. Following a red flag for the incident, Hamlin grabbed the lead from Jeff Burton on the restart and led the final 12 laps for the victory. The Samsung Mobile 500 was just the second Sprint Cup Series race forced to Monday due to rain in the speedway’s history and featured the debut of NASCAR’s new spoiler at Texas Motor Speedway.

Race Recap

Kurt Busch (No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge) foiled younger brother Kyle’s chance to become the first driver to win three NASCAR national series races in the same weekend by conserving enough fuel to outlast the field and win the Dickies 500 by 25.686 seconds. The margin of victory set a track record when the rest of the contenders were forced to pit late for fuel, while Busch gambled and won by staying out. Kurt overtook the lead from a dominant Kyle, who led a race-high 232 laps, on Lap 332 of 334, when the younger Busch ran out of fuel on the backstretch trying to reach pit lane. Jimmie Johnson’s bid for a fourth consecutive Sprint Cup title nearly took a disastrous turn when a crash caused by Sam Hornish Jr. on Lap 3 led to a 38th-place finish, shrinking his points lead to 73 over Mark Martin.

Race Recap

Jeff Gordon (No. 24 National Guard/DuPont Chevrolet) snapped a 47-race personal winless streak dating to 2007 with a victory in the Samsung 500. He led six times for a race-high 105 laps en route to the .378 of a second win over Hendrick teammate Jimmie Johnson in the thirdclosest Sprint Cup finish in Texas Motor Speedway history. Defending Samsung 500 champion Carl Edwards was in command until a botched pit stop late in the race cost him the lead with 31 laps remaining and Gordon took advantage of the miscue. Gordon took the lead on Lap 307 and never relinquished it for the final 28 laps for his first win since Charlotte in October of 2007 and first at TMS.

Race Recap

New records were written in the history books following the Samsung 500 as Jeff Burton (No. 31 Prilosec OTC Chevrolet) became the first repeat NASCAR Sprint Cup winner at TMS. Burton, who claimed the inaugural Cup victory at TMS in 1997, led only one time for one lap, but it was the lap that counted. Burton also added his name to the TMS record books in the category of fewest laps led by a Sprint Cup race winner (one). Burton shot past Matt Kenseth on the final lap and held him off by 0.410 of a second for the fourth-closest Sprint Cup finish in speedway history.

Race Recap

Tony Stewart (No. 20 The Home Depot Chevrolet) put on a dominant display as he led a track-record 278 of 339 laps en route to the win in the Dickies 500, the eighth race in the 10-event Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. Stewart, who qualified eighth, was cruising to the win before a late caution forced a NASCARstyle “overtime.” The two-lap shootout, known as a green/ white-checkered finish, was Stewart’s only challenge as he held off eventual series champion Jimmie Johnson by .272 of a second. Stewart’s win marked the first time a nonChase driver earned a victory in the Dickies 500.

Race Recap

Matt Kenseth (No. 17 DeWalt Power Tools Ford) stormed from the rear of the field to capture the rain-delayed Samsung/ RadioShack 500. The race was held on Monday morning as heavy rain postponed the event. Kenseth had qualified 31st – the furthest back a Sprint Cup Series winner has started at TMS – but was then forced to the rear of the field after the team’s engine failed in practice. He roared through the field and led 85 laps, but still needed to stave off Jeff Gordon at the end by 0.888 of a second. The event marked the first Sprint Cup Series race since the track was repaved.

2012 Spring/Summer Media Guide

Black Flag

All racing must stop when the red flag is waved. A red flag signals unsafe conditions on the track, either from an incident or inclement weather.

Yellow Flag Drivers must slow their speed and maintain position because of an accident, debris or other hazard. Drivers may not improve their race position while on the speedway. Most pit stops occur during a yellow flag period because of re­duced speeds by competitors.

Blue Flag with Yellow Stripe Commonly refer­red to as the “move over” flag. It is displayed to drivers who are being approached from behind by the race leaders and about to fall one com­­­pleted lap behind the pace­setter, referred to as “being lapped.” The drivers about to be lapped are to yield a clear lane to the leaders.

White Flag One lap remaining in race.

Checkered Flag The race is completed, displayed to all competitors as they cross the startfinish line.

SPRING RACE PREVIEW

O’Reilly Auto Parts 300 Friday, April 13

The O’Reilly Auto Parts 300 is the sixth race of the 33-event NASCAR Nationwide Series season and the first of two Nationwide races at Texas Motor Speedway. This will be the 16th spring Nationwide Series event at Texas Motor Speedway, which has played host to the series since opening in 1997. Carl Edwards captured his second consecutive Nationwide Series victory at Texas Motor Speedway, winning the O’Reilly Auto Parts on April 8, 2011. Edwards dominated the field as he started on the pole and led 169 of 200 laps for his 30th career Nationwide Series victory. Despite dominating, Edwards avoided a major mishap on Lap 88 when the lapped car of Tim Schendel blew a tire in front of the leaders. Edwards was able to avoid contact but Schendel’s car collected Kyle Busch, who was running second to Edwards at the time but his day ended after the incident sent them into the Turn 2 wall.

O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge Saturday, Nov. 3

The O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge is the 31st race in the 33-event NASCAR Nationwide Series season and the second of two series visits to Texas Motor Speedway. This will be the eighth edition of the fall event, which made its debut in the 2005 season. Trevor Bayne continued his year of firsts in 2011 during the O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge on Nov. 5, 2011. Bayne – who earned his first career Sprint Cup Series victory in last year’s season-opening Daytona 500 – earned his first career Nationwide Series victory by holding off runner-up Denny Hamlin in the O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge. Bayne led just six laps, which tied the mark for the fewest laps led by a Nationwide Series winner at TMS. His 0.142-second victory over Hamlin was the second-closest Nationwide Series finish at “The Great American Speedway!”

Trevor Bayne

Race Recap

Trevor Bayne (No. 16 Roush Fenway Racing Ford) earned his first career Nationwide Series victory in the O’Reilly Auto Parts Challenge. Bayne, who captured his first career Sprint Cup Series victory in the season-opening Daytona 500, didn’t have the most dominate car, leading just six laps, but his late surge led him to Victory Lane and tied the track record for fewest laps led by a Nationwide Series winner. Bayne was able to capitalize on a restart on Lap 194, overtaking Roush Fenway Racing teammate Carl Edwards to lead the final six laps. Edwards was clearly the most dominant up until that point as he led a race-high 157 of the 200 laps. Bayne’s 0.142-second victory over second-place finisher Denny Hamlin was the second-closest Nationwide Series finish at Texas Motor Speedway.

Race Recap

In the first NASCAR Nationwide Series race held at night at Texas Motor Speedway, Carl Edwards (No. 60 Fastenal Ford) held off a strong challenge from Kyle Busch to win the O’Reilly Auto Parts 300. Edwards, who started on the pole, led 169 laps and became only the second Nationwide driver besides Kyle Busch to win from the pole at “The Great American Speedway!” Edwards also joined Busch and Mark Martin as the only Nationwide drivers to claim consecutive races at TMS. Edwards escaped trouble while leading on Lap 88 when the lapped car of Tim Schendel blew a tire in front of him. Edwards was able to avoid contact, but Busch, who was running second at the time, collided with Schendel, sending both cars into the Turn 2 wall and out of the race.

Race Recap

Joe Nemechek (No. 87 Cellular One Chevrolet) led just once in the O’Reilly 300, but it came at the perfect time in order for him to capture his first victory at Texas Motor Speedway. Todd Bodine was in charge until he was caught up in a 15-car accident in Turn 1 that brought out the caution on Lap 192, allowing Nemechek to move into the lead for the final eight laps. The last three laps also ran under caution, the 10th of the day and a Nationwide Series track record.

Race Recap

Mark Martin (No. 60 WinnDixie Ford) captured the CocaCola 300 for the second time in three years as the event was reduced to 163 laps from a scheduled 200 due to rain. Martin started on the outside pole and led five times for 21 laps, including the final eight, as the race finished under caution due to the inclement weather. Martin took over the lead just two laps before the final caution flag was waved, ending the race. Matt Kenseth, who led 127 of the 163 laps, was slowed by a green flag stop followed by a caution putting him a lap down.

Race Recap

Mark Martin (No. 60 WinnDixie Ford) set the tone for his future dominance of this event by capturing the inaugural Coca-Cola 300. Martin, who would go on to win again in 1999 and 2000, started 20th and led just the final 13 laps en route to the win. He was not challenged late as he cruised to a 1.57-second victory over runner-up Jimmy Spencer. Martin holds the distinction as the first driver to visit Victory Lane at “The Great American Speedway!” as the Nationwide Series event was the first race held at TMS.

SUMMER RACE PREVIEW

WinStar World Casino 400 Friday, June 8

The WinStar World Casino 400 is the ninth race in the 25-event NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and first of two stops at Texas Motor Speedway. This will be the 16th truck series race that is coupled with the IndyCar Series, a tradition that began in the inaugural 1997 season of “The Great American Speedway!” Ron Hornaday Jr. secured his third career victory at Texas Motor Speedway during a wild conclusion to the WinStar World Casino 400 on June 10, 2011. Hornaday Jr. was able to grab the lead on Lap 167 following a miscue by race leader Johnny Sauter during the restart for a green/white-checkered finish. Sauter was given the black flag for violating the NASCAR rule of moving out of your respective lane prior to reaching the start/finish line. The race marked the seventh NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race to conclude with a green/white-checkered finish at Texas Motor Speedway and also established track records for the truck series for most leaders (9), lead changes (11) and cautions (10) while also tying the mark for caution laps (46).

The WinStar World Casino 400 is the 24th race in the 25-event NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and second of two stops at Texas Motor Speedway. This will be the eighth edition of the fall event, which kicks off the NASCAR tripleheader weekend at “The Great American Speedway!” Kevin Harvick, driving in his final truck series race for Kevin Harvick Inc., made it memorable as he won the WinStar World Casino 350 on Nov. 4, 2011. Harvick led 61 laps en route to his first truck series victory at “The Great American Speedway!” The race, however, will best be known for an accident on Lap 15 involving Kyle Busch and Ron Hornaday Jr. The two made contact in Turn 2 and during the caution period Busch intentionally wrecked Hornaday Jr., sending both cars out of the race and ruining Hornaday Jr.’s championship hopes. Busch was later parked by NASCAR for the remainder of the weekend for his actions, prohibiting him from competing in both the Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series events.

Kevin Harvick

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Race No. 24 Nov. 4, 2011 | 220.5 Miles - 147 Laps | Purse: $548,306 Finish Start Truck Pos. Pos. No. Driver Team Laps

Race Recap

Kevin Harvick (No. 2 Hunt Brothers Pizza Chevrolet) earned his first career truck victory at Texas Motor Speedway during the WinStar World Casino 350. Harvick led a race-high 60 of the 148 laps en route to a 0.294 of a second victory over runner-up Austin Dillon. He became the eighth different NASCAR driver to win in multiple series at TMS. However, the race will best be remembered for an accident on Lap 15 involving Kyle Busch and Ron Hornaday Jr. The two made contact in Turn 2 and during the caution period Busch intentionally wrecked Hornaday Jr., sending both cars out of the race and ruining Hornaday Jr.’s championship hopes. Busch was later parked by NASCAR for the remainder of the weekend for his actions, prohibiting him from competing in both the Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series events.

Race Recap

Ron Hornaday Jr. (No. 33 Kroger/AMS Chevrolet) picked up his third career victory at Texas Motor Speedway in dramatic fashion during the WinStar World Casino 400k. Hornaday Jr.’s victory was the result of a miscue by Johnny Sauter during the final restart. Sauter violated the NASCAR rule of moving out of your respective lane before reaching the start/finish line on the restart that resulted in a black-flag penalty. Hornaday Jr. held off Parker Kligerman in the seventh NASCAR Camping World Truck Series green/ white-checkered finish at Texas Motor Speedway. The race also established track records for the truck series for most leaders (19), lead changes (11) and cautions (10), while also tying the mark for caution laps (46).

Race Recap

Todd Bodine (No. 30 Germain. com Toyota) captured the WinStar World Casino 400k for the second consecutive year, pushing his victory total at Texas Motor Speedway to Camping World Truck Seriesrecord six. Bodine’s previous TMS victories came in 2004, ’05 (fall), ’06 (summer), ’07 (summer) and ’09 (summer).

Bodine, who started fourth, was dominant, leading three times for 107 laps, but had to withstand a green/white-checkered finish due to a multi-truck accident in the final laps to earn the victory. He did not relinquish his lead on the restart and rolled to a 1.007-second advantage over runner-up Johnny Sauter.

RACE PREVIEW

Firestone 550 Saturday, June 9

The Firestone 550 is the seventh of 16 events on the 2012 IZOD IndyCar Series schedule, and will mark the 22nd time Indy cars have raced at Texas Motor Speedway. The Firestone 550 also will be the 16th edition of this summer evening event that is known as “America’s Original Nighttime IndyCar Race.” After experimenting with a dual-race format in 2011, the event will return to its original format – one 228-lap race – this season. The Firestone Twin 275s on June 11, 2011, served as a historical moment for the series when Texas Motor Speedway played host to its first dual-race event weekend. The Firestone Twin 275s consisted of two full-field, 275-kilometer races (171 miles/114 laps each) with two race winners being crowned. In Race 1, Target Chip Ganassi Racing’s Dario Franchitti dominated, leading 110 of 114 laps to earn his first victory at Texas Motor Speedway. Franchitti’s win over teammate Scott Dixon by 0.0527 seconds was the fourth-closest IndyCar Series finish in the track’s history. In race 2, Tony Kanaan used luck to win the pole via a drawing, but it was Team Penske driver Will Power who used skill on the track to take the victory. After starting third, Power grabbed the lead on Lap 39 and went on to lead 68 laps for his first-ever oval-track win.

The second of the two races of the Firestone Twin 275s provided intrigue as drivers randomly selected their starting position. KV Racing Technology’s Tony Kanaan drew the pole position, but it was Team Penske’s Will Power (No. 12 Verizon Honda) that proved victorious. Power scored his first career oval victory, defeating Scott Dixon by 0.9466 of a second. Power, who started third, ran out front during 68 of the race’s 114 laps for the win after taking the lead for the first time on Lap 39. Power’s win highlighted a dominating race for Team Penske, which saw all three of its drivers finish in the top five, with Ryan Briscoe finishing third and Helio Castroneves fourth. It was the seventh victory at TMS for legendary team owner Roger Penske.

Race Recap

Ryan Briscoe (No. 6 Team Penske Honda) avenged his heart-breaking loss a year earlier at Texas Motor Speedway with a victory in the Firestone 550k. Briscoe, who led the most laps the previous year but was denied the win due to a disappointing final pit stop, led the most laps again (102), but left nothing to chance. Briscoe was strong throughout and withstood a late charge by the Andretti Autosport duo of Danica Patrick and Marco Andretti. Patrick led her first lap of the season on Lap 192 of 228, but Briscoe overtook her on the ensuing lap and led the final 36 en route to a 1.4629-second victory. The victory was the sixth for team owner Roger Penske, making him the winningest IZOD IndyCar Series owner at TMS.

Race Recap

Scott Sharp (No. 8 Delphi Automotive Systems Oldsmobile) won the Casino Magic 500k for the second consecutive year and became the second multiple IRL winner at Texas Motor Speedway. A three-car accident involving race leader Greg Ray, who led a race-high 86 of the 200 laps, allowed Sharp to inherit the lead on Lap 196 and he held it for the final five laps that were run under caution due to an accident in the backstretch involving Ray, Robby McGehee and Eddie Cheever Jr.. The win was Sharp’s sixth of his career.

Race Recap

The True Value 500k, the inaugural IZOD IndyCar Series race at Texas Motor Speedway, had a controversial finish that led to a skirmish between owner A.J. Foyt and winner Arie Luyendyk (No. 5 Treadway/ Wavephore Oldsmobile). Billy Boat, Foyt’s driver, appeared to have won the race, but Luyendyk was declared the winner after USAC approved his protest of the race results, citing malfunctioning timing and scoring equipment. Luyendyk was credited with leading the final 19 laps en route to the victory.

Black Flag

All racing must stop when the red flag is waved. A red flag signals unsafe conditions on the track, either from an incident or inclement weather.

Yellow Flag Drivers must slow their speed and maintain position because of an accident, debris or other hazard. Drivers may not improve their race position while on the speedway. Most pit stops occur during a yellow flag period because of re­duced speeds by competitors.

Blue Flag with Yellow Stripe Commonly refer­red to as the “move over” flag. It is displayed to drivers who are being approached from behind by the race leaders and about to fall one com­­­pleted lap behind the pace­setter, referred to as “being lapped.” The drivers about to be lapped are to yield a clear lane to the leaders.

White Flag Track Distance: 1.5 miles Qualifying Record: 225.979 mph/23.896 sec. (Billy Boat, 1998-F)

One lap remaining in race.

Checkered Flag The race is completed, displayed to all competitors as they cross the startfinish line.
