NAPLES, ME (October 15) – The Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Commonwealth Classic originally scheduled for October 19-20 at Richmond Raceway (Richmond) has been postponed.

Officials are currently looking at a new date of March 30, 2019 for the PASS Commonwealth Classic. This date with provide much more flexibility with scheduling if weather should once again become a factor. This date will be confirmed within the next few weeks.

It was a Stewart-Haas Racing day at #Talladega - All four team mates started up front with Kurt Busch on the lead. They held the top 4 sports most of the day and an overtime restart allowed the juggle to begin as Harvick dove off for fuel, Busch ran out and Aric Almirola took the lead on the final lap with Clint Bowyer in tow. Almirola's win locks him in to advance while Harvick and Busch have good points to hold on. Bowyer needs to keep an eye on a win at Kansas or, at least, keep a handful of contenders behind to stay safe when they return to Martinsville Speedway. Oh... It seems someone will win along with Aric Almirola - his #10 sponsor, Smithfield Foods, is putting up Bacon for Life! There is still time to enter.... #NASCAR #Stewart-Haas #Almirola #Bacon ...

(science, technology, engineering and mathematics) Monster Energy NASCAR Cup driver, William Byron (Liberty University #24 Chevy), was also on hand at the racetrack to discuss racing and the technology crossover with iRacing (online SIM / racing). Byron touched on iRacing as a training tool while also highlighting the technology involved with the realism of the SIM environment. Students got a chance to "drive" the full iRacing experience while also hearing about the science of the development directly from iRacing designers. The First Data 500 is quickly approaching, Byron hit on the excitement of the short track and the quality of racing reaching in new directions for fans.

Last weekend, the Charlotte "Roval" shook things up quite a bit. Drivers struggled to get a grip on the lines of the road course layout and there were dents, scrapes and cracked cars through practice to racing. The edge continued to the finish as Jimmie Johnson was too fast to make the turns and took both him and Martin Truex Jr off the lead. This left the finish line open to a surprised but no less excited Ryan Blaney! Johnson was out of the playoff run, Truex is still in. Denny Hamlin, Austin Dillon and Erik Jones also fell off the points bracket. Dover begins a new set to race in and stay in! #nascar #roval #monstermile ... See MoreSee Less
