NASCAR to strip cheaters of tires
NASCAR has notified teams that they could lose tires for a race as a penalty for further inspection issues.

It was a point Scott Miller, NASCAR senior vice president of competition, made Monday on “The Morning Drive” on Sirius NASCAR Radio.

Asked about inspection violations, Miller said: “If we continue to have problems, there’s the potential to add more penalties, take tires away, do several different things to kind of make it more painful for the teams not to qualify. We don’t really want to have to do that, but we do have some things in our back pocket in case we continue to struggle."

Elon Musk thinking big, very big
Tesla Inc. will open as many as 20 large factories worldwide as it makes multiple models of electric cars and batteries to store energy, co-founder and CEO Elon Musk said yesterday.

Speaking at a shareholder meeting at the company's headquarters in Palo Alto, Calif., Musk outlined a vision of the company as far larger than it is now and one helping to bring a package of carbon-free solutions.

He said the company is making the transition from an electric carmaker to a "fully integrated sustainable energy company." Tesla acquired SolarCity Corp. last year and now is selling EVs, batteries and solar.

Drunken Bubba climbs fence above active raceway at Dover (Update)
UPDATE It wasn’t fake news or a replay of Richmond International Raceway from a few years ago, someone really did climb the fence in Turn 4 during the closing laps of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Dover International Raceway and when he finally came down, he was "rapidly apprehended."

As the laps ticked down under a late caution, fans in Turn 4 began Tweeting photos of a person sitting atop the fence over the track, which prompted some to think the pics were fake because NASCAR officials never addressed it over their public radio channels. However, a NASCAR spokesperson confirmed the climber was real and NASCAR security, along with CSC (Contemporary Security Corporation) guards took John Infanti into custody and turned him over to Dover police officers.

California won't reach its clean car goal without China
Jerry Brown (D), American enemy #1
Jerry Brown (D), American enemy #1, looking to take jobs from Americans and ship them overseas
California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) wants Chinese companies to fill the state's demand for electric vehicles.

Brown signed agreements Sunday and yesterday with two Chinese provinces to work on clean energy and climate change policies and called for Chinese companies to begin selling more electric vehicles in California to help it meet its greenhouse gas reduction goals.

In the wake of President Trump's announced withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement (the Paris deal was a redistribution of American wealth to overseas countries. Obama loved taking from the USA and giving it to others) Brown has said he sees China as the world's best hope for leading global emissions reduction efforts. He is in China this week to drum up support for climate policies, including emissions trading and renewable energy generation (of course this is complete BS as there are plenty of American companies making EVs with many more on the drawing boards to meet the demand).

After tying Cale Yarborough on the Monster Energy Series all-time wins list and earning his 11th victory at the Monster Mile, Jimmie Johnson spent Monday morning having Basal Cell Carcinoma removed from his shoulder.

Known as BCC, the type of skin cancer is one that begins in the basal cells and is very common, caused by excessive exposure to the sun.

Although it’s not a way the seven-time champion had hoped to celebrate his 83rd career victory, the fact that he caught it early was a victory in itself.

Pirelli would welcome F1 tire war

Look at all the marbles on the track without a tire war. Recall the tire war days and the tons of rubber on the track, making passing near impossible. Tire wars always result in teams on the best tires having complete domination. F1 is 99% car. Add a tire war and it will be 99.5% car.
Pirelli chairman Marco Tronchetti Provera says F1's sole tire supplier would welcome a tire war as they like competition.

Pirelli have been Formula 1's sole tire supplier since 2011, having replaced Bridgestone.

Despite a history of complete disasters whenever there was a tire war, Tronchetti Provera says Pirelli would welcome it.

He told Autosport: "We race everywhere in the world, alone and against others.

"We like competition.

"When we race with the others, we win.

"We're ready for any competition, with anybody."

Speaking of the teams' "willingness" to have just one tire supplier, he added: "I never heard in the last years or months any will to change." 

And he won't. Case closed.

A Coyne official told The Indianapolis Star that the team requested that Verizon IndyCar Series officials allow Gutierrez to test at Chicagoland Speedway this week, but the request was denied by IndyCar on the grounds that this part of the calendar is a testing blackout period.

An IndyCar official told The Indianapolis Star that the series’ statement on the matter is only that “Gutierrez is not approved to run at Texas.”

NASCAR Truck Series Teams Continue To Have Financial Struggles
NASCAR should have deep-six'ed the Truck series years ago. With motorsports in a free-fall there needs to be some consolidation. If not the Xfinity series will be next to go under.

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is seeing its teams "battle financial challenges while facing questions about a schedule that has veered from its grassroots beginning," according to Dustin Long of NBCSPORTS.com.

Cup Series driver Brad Keselowski, who owns a team in the Truck Series, said that his truck operation lost $1M in '14. But he noted that figure is "still the average for his organization."
 
Red Horse Racing, which ran in the Truck Series for 13 years, "suspended operations May 22 after struggling to find sponsorship."

Coming off his doubleheader win in Detroit this past weekend, can Rahal repeat his Texas win from a year ago?
It's near impossible to peg a favorite in IndyCar these days writes Drew Davison of the Star-Telegram.

Seven races, seven different winners so far in the open-wheel circuit. Parity is even prevalent in the winners, too, with five different countries being represented. A couple Frenchmen, an Aussie, two Americans, a Canadian and now a Japanese driver have all visited Victory Lane.

The winners have hailed from powerhouse teams such as Team Penske to smaller shops such as Dale Coyne Racing and Schmidt Peterson Motorsports.

Pirelli previews the Canadian GP
Milan,  – Following two events in Europe, Formula 1 heads to the Canadian Grand Prix, widely acknowledged as one of the most unpredictable races of the year. Just like Monaco, the three softest compounds in the P Zero Formula 1 range are present: soft, supersoft and ultrasoft. But this semi-permanent track is much quicker, with top speeds exceeding 300kph, and so poses a bigger challenge for both cars and tires. With a slippery surface, changeable weather and a relatively high incidence of safety cars – thanks mainly to the famous ‘wall of champions’ – a wide variety of race strategies has been seen in the past. But this year, we have a brand-new range of tires and different characteristics…
