    The long-anticipated Joe Gibbs Racing announcement that it will add Carl Edwards as a fourth driver next year is big, if not unexpected, news in the NASCAR landscape. What's good for JGR is good for NASCAR. There is no weak link in talent, and if the chemistry is right and the Toyotas are fast, it gives JGR a legitimate chance to breathe -- heavily -- down the necks of Hendrick Motorsports' and Stewart-Haas Racing's established fearsome foursomes. A fourth car at JGR is an exponential jump in resources, and maybe that will be the difference in sealing the championship deal for the team.

    Carlos Slim Domit, world-known businessman, has supported German Quiroga, Jose Luis Ramirez HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. -- Although Carl Edwards was the central figure at a Tuesday press conference announcing his 2015 move to Joe Gibbs Racing, the man sitting several seats from him on the podium carries much more clout. Carlos Slim Domit, chairman of the Mexican conglomerate Grupo Carso, is part of one of the world's richest families. He was at the press conference in support of Mexican driver Daniel Suarez and in partnership with Gibbs' newest sponsor, ARRIS, which produces broadband and video technology.

    Joe Gibbs is waiting for Tony Stewart to emerge from seclusion to reach out to his former driver. Stewart has been in insolation since his car struck and killed Kevin Ward Jr. in an Aug. 8 sprint car race. We all know he's a racer's racer, and he's big for our sport.'' Stewart drove for Gibbs from 1997 through 2008, winning Cup titles in 2002 and 2005 driving for Joe Gibbs Racing. He left following the 2008 season when he was offered an ownership stake at Stewart-Haas Racing.

    Juan Pablo Montoya and Tony Kanaan finally caught up with Milwaukee Mile winner Will Power at the post-race celebration, lathering his head with cream puffs. After coming into Milwaukee with a four-point lead, Power heads to the road course at Sonoma next week with 602 points, 39 more than fellow Team Penske driver Helio Castroneves. Before he could slip away to California, Power had to clean himself up at the Mile.

    Ryan Hunter-Reay never seemed too worried about his future with Andretti Autosport. There are just three weeks left on the IndyCar schedule for Hunter-Reay to pass Will Power and Helio Castroneves and claim a second series championship in three seasons. A smiling Hunter-Reay and team owner Michael Andretti formally signed the paperwork for the extension in front of cameras before Sunday's race at the Milwaukee Mile. DHL also announced it would remain the primary sponsor of Hunter-Reay's No. 28 car another three years.

    With traffic ahead and teammate Juan Pablo Montoya closing in from behind, Will Power stepped on the accelerator. The IndyCar points leader maneuvered through the high-speed gridlock to claim a crucial victory Sunday at the Milwaukee Mile. Power added a little breathing room in the standings over second-place Helio Castroneves and boosted Team Penske's hopes for a season title with two races to go. ''We're a well-oiled machine right now with all three cars,'' Power said about the team that also includes Castroneves.


  • IndyCar leader Will Power takes pole at Milwaukee (The Associated Press)
    Sat, 16 Aug 2014 17:17:41 PDT
    Will Power gave Tony Kanaan a friendly tap on the arm when someone asked the fellow IndyCar driver about what it took to succeed at the Milwaukee Mile. The IndyCar series points leader will start at the pole Sunday after being the only driver to surpass 169 mph in qualifying. What a nice way to start the final three weeks of the season for Power, who has a slim lead over Team Penske teammate Helio Castroneves in the standings. Tony Kanaan qualified second at 168.662 mph for his seventh straight top-10 start.

  • Andretti hopes to draw more IndyCar fans to Mile (The Associated Press)
    Sat, 16 Aug 2014 13:54:16 PDT
    The IndyCar stop at the Milwaukee Mile has a new date in a series with a tight driver leaderboard. Now if the 250-mile race could attract a few more fans, promoter and team owner Michael Andretti would feel more secure about the future of a race at the 111-year-old track. It's second only to (Indianapolis) in terms of tradition, and so I feel it should be part of the IndyCar series,'' Andretti said. It nearly fell off the schedule again in 2012 before Andretti's group took over at the last minute.
  • Kimball teams with Wilkins on diabetes awareness (The Associated Press)
    Fri, 15 Aug 2014 15:46:19 PDT
    Basketball Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins plans to take a spin around an IndyCar track. It's no career change for Wilkins, just a visit this weekend to the Milwaukee Mile ahead of Sunday's race and part of an effort to promote diabetes awareness along with driver Charlie Kimball. Both Wilkins and Kimball have diabetes, and both serve as spokesman for Novo Nordisk, which also sponsors Kimball's No. 83 car. It will be a far different meeting from their usual encounters, pacing the halls of Congress to meet with senators and representatives about diabetes awareness.
