DOVER, Del. (April 3, 2020) – One of the few certainties in motorsports is that all drivers are eager to add Dover International Speedway’s Monster Trophy to their collections.

“I saw the trophy in the driver’s meeting yesterday and I said that’s pretty awesome,” Truex said in May. “That golden one is special. It’s pretty awesome to win on the 50th anniversary of Dover International Speedway.”(more…)
RYAN BLANEY GETTING iRACE READY FOR TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY
Ryan Blaney found himself like many race fans last weekend as he watched the NASCAR debut of iRacing from the grandstands. And while he enjoyed the view, he’s used to being part of the action.
So when Fox Sports hits the airwaves on Sunday from the virtual Texas Motor Speedway, Blaney will be behind the wheel of his familiar No. 12 Ford Mustang.
“I’ve never been a big iRacing person for multiple reasons, but it just looked like it was a lot of fun,” said Blaney. “The thing that pushed me into making it want to happen was seeing how the fans enjoyed it. Social media was blowing up and people really enjoyed just watching some form of racing again, which is nice. I saw their support and their push for me to try to get in, so I was happy we were able to make it happen.”(more…)
