  • I know that at one point Gordon made a remark over the radio about how Busch was racing, but that was just heat-of-the-moment stuff
  • Gordon had the best car, but Logano was just able to hold on, becoming the youngest driver at 19 to ever win a Sprint Cup race

      Under the cloudy Loudon, New Hampshire skies, the NASCAR Sprint Cup series continued their hectic race schedule with the Lenox Industrial Tools 301 race on Sunday, June 28. Qualifying had been rained out, so the field was set by owner’s points, which put Tony Stewart on the poll with Jeff Gordon on the outside.

      This was a tremendously exciting race from start to finish. The racers were fighting for every spot as Loudon is notorious for making it difficult to pass. Track position was ultra important, and from the moment the green flag fell, it felt like the last lap. This sense of urgency was heightened


      by the threat of rain.

      The race was full of three-wide racing. I mean, I was holding my breath big time as I watched some of the duels for position that occurred. Especially thrilling was the double file restarts which NASCAR has been doing for a couple of weeks now. Lap-down traffic is no longer issue. All of the guys up front are fighting one another, and it’s increased the excitement tremendously.

      Stewart led for a while, as did Jimmie Johnson. Kurt Busch was very exciting to watch as he battled Jeff Gordon for much of the race. It was clean racing, though, and ...


      • that’s important to note. I know that at one point Gordon made a remark over the radio about how Busch was racing, but that was just heat-of-the-moment stuff. In fact, when the race stopped because the rain was falling, Busch was being interviewed on TV and Jeff walked by and gave Busch a friendly nudge, teasing him about their battles. Gordon prevailed most of the time with Busch.

        Gordon’s 24 Dupont team was terrific on Sunday, getting Gordon out first at the pivotal moment. However, some drivers had stayed out, playing the fuel mileage game with the impending rain. It’s that strategy that actually

        gave young Joey Logano the victory. He was driving on fumes and with a couple of laps of having to pit when the yellow caution switched to a red flag and then the race was called. Gordon had the best car, but Logano was just able to hold on, becoming the youngest driver at 19 to ever win a Sprint Cup race.

        It was a great race, full of thrills and even with a large wreck, to which both Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kyle Busch took responsibility for. Some nine cars were taken out by the debacle. Still, the Lenox Industrial Tools 301 race was awesome.
