  • Stewart to run "Always a Racer" scheme for final Cup race: After three NASCAR Sprint Cup titles, 49 victories and 618 starts, Tony Stewart will climb in his #14 Always a Racer/Mobil 1 Chevy for the final time in his 18-year career Sunday afternoon at Homestead-Miami Speedway and conclude what is destined to be a first-ballot Hall of Fame career. But save the tears, race fans. He isn't done driving and he isn't going away. "You're going to see me driving a lot next year, but most of it will be on dirt," Stewart said. "I kind of look at this as halftime of my career and I'll still be around the NASCAR garage. I'll just have more time. If I see Richard Petty or anyone else in the garage, I can go over and talk to him now and not have to worry about getting to the car or trying to figure out how to make my car go faster. I can focus now on what I want to do and my job at SHR (Stewart-Haas Racing.)"
    For his last race, Stewart will drive a special paint scheme carrying each SHR employees' signature with the words "Always a Racer, Forever a Champion," as well as pictorial highlights of his 18-year career on the hood. Except for the special paint scheme and hosting about 75 SHR guests to watch his final race, Stewart's finale will be low-key as the rest of the racing world watches the culmination of NASCAR's 2016 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, during which the sport will crown its champion.
    "We didn't want all the ceremony and distraction this year," Stewart said. "We just wanted to focus on the racecar and run well and let the NASCAR fans see us race a final time." Stewart has avoided much of the pomp and circumstance, opting instead to race well and accept a few accolades along the way from tracks and SHR's corporate partners. The strategy has worked as Stewart has returned to the front of the field, logging five top-five and eight top-10 finishes in 2016. The highlight came in June, when Stewart made a last-lap pass of Denny Hamlin at Sonoma Raceway to claim his 49th career victory that ultimately led to a berth in the 2016 Chase, where Stewart fell a few points short of advancing to the Round of 12.
    He'd like nothing more than to close his 2016 season, as well as his career, with a strong run Sunday on the high-banked turns at Homestead-Miami Speedway. He won the first two Sprint Cup races at the South Florida track in 1999 and 2000, then visited victory lane again in 2011, when he won a thrilling duel with Carl Edwards. The victory left Edwards and Stewart tied in points, with Stewart winning his third Sprint Cup title based on a tiebreaker. In 16 career starts at the 1.5-mile oval, he also owns four top-five and seven top-10 finishes and has led 450 laps. He's completed 4,186 of a possible 4,277 laps at the track.
    The full list of Stewart's assault on the NASCAR record book is a long one but, when he climbs from the #14 Sunday, he'll do so as the 13th-winningest driver with his 49 wins. His three Sprint Cup titles ties him for fifth all-time, and he's also won IndyCar and IROC championships. His race wins include: 11 in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, six in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, three in IndyCar and four in IROC. Plus, he's won countless short-track races and titles since he first climbed in a go-kart in Indiana all those years ago (TSC/SHR).

  • Ty Dillon to run the #95 at Homestead: Ty Dillon is scheduled to make his 11th Sprint Cup Series start of the 2016 season this weekend at Homestead in the #95 Advil Chevy. Dillon has one previous NSCS start at the 1.5-mile speedway; he drove the #33 Nexium 24HR Chevy to a 23rd-place finish last November. This weekend on the #95 Chevy will be the blue-and-white colors of Advil. Patients and doctors have trusted Advil to deliver fast and long-lasting relief from several kinds of pain, including headache, muscle aches, minor arthritis and other joint pain, and backache for more than 30 years (RCR), see an image of the car on the #95 team schemes page. Michael McDowell will be in a 2ns Circle Sport - Leavine Family Racing car, the #59 Thrivent Financial Chevy. McDowell will have to qualify by speed as the 2nd team doesn't have a charter.(11-15-2016)

  • Elliott's 2017 NAPA scheme unveiled: Tuesday, Chase Elliott unveiled his 2017 NAPA AUTO PARTS Chevrolet SS paint scheme on his Instagram account. The 2016 Rookie of the Year contender wanted to "keep it all in the family," so the design will retain the same blue-and-yellow colors as well as the five blue stripes that mimic Ron Capps' NAPA AUTO PARTS NHRA Funny Car. However, the scheme also incorporates new featured elements such as yellow racing stripes surrounding the existing light blue and red stripes on the side panels, yellow stripes on the A-frames and a completely new yellow rear panel.(Hendrick Motorsports), see an image of the car on the #24 team 2017 paint schemes page.(10-11-2016)

  • Hendrick announces new sponsor for Kahne and HMS: UniFirst and 11-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports have reached an eight-year agreement that will make the workwear and textile service company a primary sponsor of the #5 Chevy driven by Kasey Kahne. The contract runs through the year 2023. As the new Official Workwear Provider of Hendrick Motorsports, UniFirst will be a two-race primary sponsor in both 2016 and 2017, with the relationship increasing to three primary races annually from 2018-2023. In addition, UniFirst will be a full-season associate sponsor of the #5 team. UniFirst will make its Sprint Cup Series primary sponsorship debut later this season with back-to-back races Oct. 23 at Talladega and Oct. 30 at Martinsville. UniFirst is one of North America's largest workwear and textile service companies, providing managed uniform, protective clothing, custom corporate image apparel, and ancillary facility services programs to businesses in virtually all industries. As part of the new relationship, UniFirst will supply work clothing and uniforms to Hendrick Motorsports and sister company Hendrick Automotive Group, which is the largest privately held retail automotive organization in the United States (HMS), see image of the scheme on the #5 Team Schemes page (10-6-2016)

  • Lionel taking over mass-distribution rights to NASCAR Diecasts: NASCAR licensee Lionel Racing has assumed mass-distribution rights for NASCAR's diecast collection, expanding its prior role that saw it previously sell to collectors. The 115-year-old toy maker, which became a licensee of the sanctioning body in 2010 and takes over from Spin Master, will now sell its NASCAR Authentics diecast collection at retailers like Wal-Mart, Target and Toys "R" Us. Lionel President Howard Hitchcock ... expects that the company will "easily" grow at a double-digit clip thanks to the new rights it has picked up. Hitchcock reported that even amid a time when people are increasingly spending discretionary income on digital possessions, demand for diecasts remains strong and the business "has been very stable." The company, which outside of NASCAR also has an exclusive deal with NHRA's John Force Racing and does some work in the sprint car space, is eyeing digital tie-ins that can be a part of diecasts in the future.(Sports Business Daily)(1-19-2016)

  • Lionel Racing announce best-selling diecast of 2015: #88-Dale Earnhardt Jr. and #24-Jeff Gordon didn't just have the top two die-cast cars of the year, they dominated the list of best-selling cars which was unveiled today by Lionel Racing - The Official Die-Cast of NASCAR. "Since we began publishing our top 10 list in 2011, we haven't seen such a dominant performance by two drivers as we have this year," said Howard Hitchcock, President of Lionel Racing. "Their sales numbers are a testament both to their impact on the sport and their ability to connect with the most passionate NASCAR fans - our collectors - in a big way." Earnhardt's new primary paint scheme drove sales of his #88 Nationwide Insurance die-cast to the top spot, while Gordon's wildly popular throwback, the #24 Axalta Rainbow Chevy, was the company's second biggest seller. "We knew when the Axalta Rainbow car was first announced that this would be one of the most important die-cast of the year to longtime fans of the sport," Hitchcock said. "I think we were just as thrilled as Gordon's fans were to see this iconic paint scheme on track in his final year of competition." The only driver to make the Lionel Racing list that wasn't named Earnhardt or Gordon was Chase Elliott. Elliott's #25 NAPA Chevy die-cast ranked a solid sixth. "Elliott's popularity with NASCAR fans is incredibly impressive when you consider he has competed in the sport for just two years," Hitchcock said. "That fan appeal is directly reflected in his sales numbers - his Cup debut car outsold several of our historically best-selling drivers." The 2015 Top 10 list is below:
    Dale Earnhardt Jr. #88 Nationwide Insurance Chevy
    Jeff Gordon. #24 Axalta Rainbow Chevy
    Dale Earnhardt Jr. #88 Mountain Dew/Dewshine Chevy
    Dale Earnhardt Jr. #88 Nationwide Insurance/Talladega Win Chevy
    Jeff Gordon #24 3M Chevy
    Chase Elliott #25 NAPA Chevy
    Jeff Gordon #24 Axalta/Homestead Chevy
    Dale Earnhardt Jr. #88 Nationwide Insurance/Stars and Stripes Daytona Win Chevy
    Dale Earnhardt Jr. #88 Valvoline Chevy
    Jeff Gordon #24 AARP Member Advantages/Martinsville Win Chevy

  • Dale Earnhardt's Black GM Goodwrench Chevrolet Crowned "Lord of the Schemes": In the beginning, there were 64 paint schemes. Fourteen weeks and six rounds later, only one remains. And it's one of the most iconic paint schemes in NASCAR history. Dale Earnhardt's black GM Goodwrench Chevrolet (60.4% of the votes) beat out Earnhardt's yellow and blue Wrangler Chevrolet (39.6%) in the championship round of Lionel Racing's "Lord of the Schemes" bracket challenge. The challenge began on Wednesday, August 19 - on the heels of the announcement that Jeff Gordon would be bringing back his popular rainbow-designed car at Bristol Motor Speedway - and ended on Wednesday, November 18. More than 138,000 votes were received throughout the campaign's run. Lionel Racing, The Official Die-Cast of NASCAR, hosted the bracket challenge on its Facebook page. Earnhardt first slipped into the seat of the black #3 GM Goodwrench Chevrolet in the 1988 season opener at Daytona International Speedway. Although he had already won 31 races and claimed three of his seven titles by this point, some of his best racing still lay ahead. He piloted the car for the next 13 seasons before passing away after sustaining injuries in a last-lap accident in the 2001 Daytona 500. During this span, he won four championships (1990-91, 1993-94) and celebrated in Victory Lane 45 times, including his memorable 1998 DAYTONA 500 victory. At the conclusion of the race, as Earnhardt steered his car to Victory Lane, crew members from every team lined pit road to congratulate the already legendary driver on winning the "Great American Race" after 20 attempts. Before facing the #3 Wrangler Chevrolet in the final round, the winning paint scheme faced an admirable lineup of contenders. In the first round, the #3 GM Goodwrench Chevrolet went up against Tony Stewart's #20 The Home Depot/It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown Pontiac. It was then pitted against Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s #8 Budweiser/Intimidator Chevrolet in the second round. In the third round, the black GM Goodwrench paint scheme battled Davey Allison's #28 Havoline Ford followed by a match-up with Petty's #43 STP Pontiac. In the semifinals, the winning paint scheme squared off against another of Earnhardt's paint schemes - the #3 Goodwrench/Silver Select Chevrolet - before the championship round.(Lionel Racing)(11-20-2015)
