Michael Waltrip Racing Cars To Bring Awareness To Storm Victims
Huffington Post Sports - almost 4 years
CONCORD, N.C. — Owner Michael Waltrip and others in the NASCAR garage hope to bring attention to the needs of those affected by the Oklahoma tornadoes at the Coca-Cola 600 this weekend. Michael Waltrip Racing's three Sprint Cup cars will carry decals of Feed The Children, an Oklahoma City-based group that is providing food and resources to victims of the tornadoes. Michael Waltrip said he wanted to help out when he saw the devastation. MWR cars driven by Martin Truex Jr., Clint Bowyer and Mark Martin will carry the decals in Sunday's race. Michael and Darrell Waltrip held a charity golf tournament last year and Feed The Children was among the beneficiaries. Swan Racing owner Brandon Davis is from Oklahoma and was in college in Oklahoma City in 1999 when the last devastating tornado hit the city's suburbs. He still has family there and said Thursday that one of his cousins lost their house in the storm. "It hit very close to home for me," Davis said. "It's be ...

Daytona Racer To Use No. 26 Car, Raise Funds For Sandy Hook
Huffington Post Sports - about 4 years
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Michael Waltrip is driving the Daytona 500 for Sandy Hook. Waltrip has switched his car number to 26 for the Daytona 500 in support of the Sandy Hook Special Support Fund. The two-time Daytona 500 winner was set to drive the No. 30 Toyota for Swan Racing in a one-race deal, but the number is being changed to honor the victims. Sandy Hook is the school in Newtown, Conn., where 20 first-graders and six adults were killed by a gunman on Dec. 14. The No. 26 car was unveiled at Daytona International Speedway on Thursday and had a black and green ribbon on the hood. Waltrip also owns Michael Waltrip Racing and all three entries will run with the "text NEWTOWN to 80888" decal for the Daytona 500 on Feb. 24. "We're putting our whole heart around this race and this cause," Waltrip said. NASCAR chairman and CEO Brian France, Waltrip and others in the sport visited Newtown last week and met with town officials, community leaders, first responders ...

NASCAR At Sonoma: Highlighting The Weekend's Road Course Ringers
SB Nation- Atlanta - over 4 years
One of the exciting aspects of races at Sonoma and Watkins Glen are the road course specialists, also known as "road course ringers," that are brought in by teams to try to get a good finish and maybe even steal a victory. There are five such drivers competing this weekend at Sonoma, a number limited by the Nationwide Series' event on the legendary Road America circuit in Elkhart Lake, WI (including my personal favorite, Ron Fellows). The most popular of the ringers is Boris Said, thanks to his fro of hair and his gregarious nature. Said is driving the No. 32 Ford for Frank Stoddard this weekend with sponsorship from Rick Hendrick's car dealerships. Said won the pole for the Sonoma race in 2003 and added a top qualifying effort at Daytona in July 2006. Said has vowed to cut his famous mane if he is able to win a Sprint Cup race, which would create an interesting decision for his wig-wearing fan-club, the "Said-Heads." Trans-Am champion Tomy Drissi is racing the No. 10 To ...

NASCAR Richmond 2012 Starting Lineup: Mark Martin Takes Top Qualifying Spot
SB Nation - almost 5 years
Mark Martin may only be a part-timer this season, but his cars are certainly fast every time he shows up. The veteran Martin won the pole position for Saturday's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Richmond International Raceway, knocking off Carl Edwards as the final car to take a qualifying lap. Edwards was second, followed by Kevin Harvick, AJ Allmendinger and Kyle Busch, who has won the last three Richmond spring races. "Man, that was dramatic for me," Edwards said. "I thought we had him, and then he shot up to the top of the scoreboard." Rounding out the top 10: Jeff Gordon, Denny Hamlin, Martin Truex Jr., Kasey Kahne and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Scott Riggs and J.J. Yeley failed to qualify for the race and were sent home.

He had five top-fives and sixteen top-tens, on his way to an eleventh-place points finish. In the latter portion of the year, Atreus left the team, and AVIS, Loan Star Title Loans, and the Penske Corporation became the team's new primary sponsors. He drove the No. 15 Hyprene Ergon Toyota Tundra in two Truck races that season as well, in addition to returning to the No. 40 Sprint Cup team, filling for the injured Dario Franchitti at Talladega.

Ganassi then made a deal with FitzBradshaw Racing to secure Stremme a ride.
  • 2003
    Age 25
    After signing a driver development contract with Chip Ganassi Racing, Stremme started 15th in his Busch Series debut at Nashville Superspeedway in April 2003, driving the No. 1 Dodge for Phoenix Racing, and finished 7th in the race.

  • 1998
    Age 20

    More Details Hide Details The team was made up of Stremme's racing friends and sponsored by Industrial Safety and Environmental Services, Inc. New cars were purchased and Stremme initiated alliances with top suppliers of engines, chassis, and shock manufacturers. In only his first start in a Kendall Late Model Series car completely assembled by Stremme at Winchester Speedway, he set a new track record and finished 4th in the race. Subsequent to this event an even larger strategy was set forth. Under the direction of Tris Gour, President, Industrial Safety and Environmental Services, Inc. a new car was purchased to compete in the NASCAR November Phoenix International Raceway race. The new car was completely built by David with help from friends. It was the first time the team had ventured significantly far away from home. As a budget did not allow for crew chiefs or fabricators, Gour and Stremme formed an alliance with Robert Hamke. Hamke is a well renowned chassis builder, racer, and crew chief. Although the car built was not a Hamke Chassis, Hamke accepted the opportunity to work with Stremme and the crew, and accepted the challenge based upon reference from Performance Technologies (engine builders) and the owner of LeftHander Chassis. Hamke had a great respect for the owner of LeftHander. In addition, Performance Technologies had built several engines for both chassis builders (Hamke and Lefthander) clients.
