NASCAR Notebook: 3/20/2013


The NASCAR Notebook is a new feature here at Beyond the Flag. Through the week we will compile a list of links and compile them into one big post to give you a run down the latest and greatest news in NASCAR.

Landon Cassill Sues BK Racing – Cassill is suing his former employers for what he claims is $205,000 in unpaid winnings and an undisclosed amount of money for being told in mid-January that he would not be driving for BK Racing. – Beyond the Flag

Larson, Buescher spark new interest – Yes, Kyle Busch continued his winning ways at Bristol Motor Speedway while extending his record for most career victories in the Nationwide Series to 53.

But in the closing laps of the 300-circuit bout, it was Kyle Larson not only nipping at Busch’s bumper but actually muscling alongside to contend at the finish.

Given Larson’s aggressive nature, Busch wasn’t entirely clear what to expect from the 20-year-old newcomer. – FOX Sports

Jeremy Mayfield has some criminal charges dropped - Jeremy Mayfield’s quest to race in NASCAR again has taken a positive turn as 10 felony burglary-related charges were dropped in Iredell County because the primary witness against him died in a motorcycle accident last year.- Sporting News

Change definitely in the air for NASCAR – NASCAR fans are noted for their loyalty to drivers, regardless of car make, sponsor or team owner. Some fans know a NASCAR lineup by the number on the side of the car as many drivers retain the same numerical identification.

This year, however, fans at Auto Club Speedway attending Sunday’s Sprint Cup Series Auto Club 400 may have to purchase a program because several drivers have changed numbers since the last time they raced around the two-mile super speedway.

In fact, that’s just one of the differences fans will have to deal with. – The Sun
