Matt Kenseth Wins Pole for Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte

mattkenseth

Joe Gibbs Racing’s Matt Kenseth won his second pole of the season last night and will start first in Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte. It’s Kenseth’s first ever pole at Charlotte, but he did collect his first ever career victory in the 2000 Coca-Cola 600. In total, it’s Kenseth’s 15th career pole. Starting on the outside pole will be Penske Racing’s Joey Logano. Kenseth’s team mates Carl Edwards and Denny Hamlin will start third and fifth, respectively, with Greg Biffle starting fourth. The final Joe Gibbs Racing entry this weekend is Kyle Busch, making his first “points” start of the season after coming back from a broken leg. Busch qualified 17th. The top seven spots do not feature a Chevrolet car. Kevin Harvick is the first Chevrolet, starting 8th. Austin Dillon will start 11th in the #3 car, followed by Tony Stewart, Jimmie Johnson, Kurt Busch, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jeff Gordon, making his final start in the Coca-Cola 600 (where he picked up the first of his 92 career wins) will start the race 18th after driving the pace car in the Indianapolis 500 earlier in the day. Chase Elliott will have another Cup start in the #25 car, and qualified 28th. The final Hendrick driver, Kasey Kahne (a three-time 600 winner) will start 33rd after a cut tire in qualifying prevented him from the final round of knockout qualifying. Race coverage begins on Fox, Sunday night at 6:00pm.

2015 Kentucky/Louisville Basketball Game Set for December 26th

UK+Louisville

The annual Battle of the Bluegrass between Rick Pitino’s Louisville Cardinals and John Calipari’s Kentucky Wildcats has been set for December 26th at Rupp Arena in Lexington. The game date was announced yesterday. The two teams have met on the day after Christmas only once before, when Denny Crum’s Louisville squad upset Tubby Smith’s Wildcats 83-74. Kentucky’s last national championship came in 2012, while Louisville won the 2013 National Championship. Last season, Louisville advanced to the Elite Eight before being eliminated by Michigan State, while Kentucky would advance to the Final Four, losing to Wisconsin. Both teams will have rebuilding jobs this year as star players from both schools declared for the NBA Draft.

Jeff Gordon Will Be New Analyst for 2016 Fox Nascar Coverage

JeffGordon

Fox Sports announced yesterday that Four-Time Cup Series Champion Jeff Gordon will join the broadcast crew for Fox’s coverage of the 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Gordon, who will retire at the end of this season (his 23rd), will join fellow former Cup champion Darrell Waltrip and Mike Joy in the broadcast booth for Fox’s coverage of the first half of the 2016 season. Gordon’s deal with Fox is said to be a multi-year deal that will actually begin with in-race reporting from the #24 car in selected races this season. The move to the booth is not surprising as Gordon has, over the years, been on many different programs. In 2002 he became the first Nascar driver ever (and currently the only one) to host “Saturday Night Live”, as well as over 10 appearances filling in for Regis Philbin on ABC’s morning show, “Live with Regis and Kelly”. Gordon has already served as a race analyst this season, covering three Nascar XFINITY races for Fox. Jeff Gordon currently is third all-time in Cup wins with 92. He is also third all-time with 80 poles, and in addition to his four titles, is a three-time Daytona 500 winner, record five-time Brickyard 400 winner, the road course “king” with nine victories, and the all-time restrictor plate winner with 10 wins at Talladega and Daytona. Gordon will drive the pace car in the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday, before heading to Charlotte for his final Coca-Cola 600. His first victory was in the 1994 Coca-Cola 600.
