NASCAR NATIONWIDE SERIES – TOYOTACARE 250, FRIDAY, APRIL 25, 7 P.M. ET ON ESPNews
Who will be the next to pull into Victory Lane for the first time? Will it be Brian Scott, Ty Dillon, Dylan Kwasniewski or perhaps even Chris Buescher? In two of the last three NASCAR Nationwide Series races a first-time winner has celebrated victoriously. Kyle Larson posted his first series race win at Auto Club in late March with Chase Elliott winning at Texas in the following event. This is the fifth consecutive season the series has crowned a first-time winner.
JRM Displaying Championship Form
It has been a good start to the 2014 season for JR Motorsports. In seven races, drivers Regan Smith and Chase Elliott have accumulated an impressive three wins, four top-five and 13 top-10 finishes. Elliott won the two most recent races (Texas and Darlington), with his teammate capturing the checkered flag in the season opener at Daytona. Elliott currently leads the series standings by 13 points over Smith. JR Motorsports is still searching for its first NASCAR Nationwide Series championship.
RCR To Make 1,000th Nationwide Start
With the series headed to Richmond International Raceway, Richard Childress Racing is approaching a milestone. When the green flag falls on Friday night’s race, RCR will have four cars entered in the race with drivers Cale Conley, Ty Dillon, Brendan Gaughan and Brian Scott behind the wheels, marking the 1,000th series start for the organization. RCR drivers have celebrated in Richmond’s Victory Lane six times in the NNS, most recently in fall 2012.
