News And Updates
The latest info from the inside.
It's nice to see some of NASCAR's best and brightest, as well as those simply along for the ride, get all lathered up about Morgan Shepherd. Apparently, most just discovered that Shepherd is 72 years old and still making the occasional start in NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series. Perhaps they weren't paying attention when Shepherd drove earlier this year in Phoenix -- but then again, his car lasted only 28 laps and he finished 43rd so it wasn't as if he stuck around all day to see who wound up in Victory Lane.
Few folks in the stock-car racing world have enjoyed such an impressive beginning, including his truck team owner Kyle Busch. The 18-year-old from Byron, Michigan, will be hoping for similar results this weekend, when Jones makes his NASCAR Nationwide Series debut for Joe Gibbs Racing at Chicagoland Speedway. Jones, who earned his second Truck Series win this past week at Iowa Speedway, will take over the reins of the No. 20 JGR Toyota for the EnjoyIllinois.com 300 (Saturday at 8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN2) He currently shares the seat of the No. 51 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota in the Truck Series with Busch.
