Chevy Rock & Roll 400

Site: Richmond, Va.

Schedule: Friday, qualifying (TNT, 3:10 p.m.); Saturday, race (TNT, 4 p.m.).

Track: Richmond International Raceway (tri-oval, 0.75 miles, 14 degrees banking in turns).

Race distance: 300 miles, 400 laps.

Last race: Kyle Busch, 20, became the youngest winner in Cup history by taking the Sony HD 500 at Fontana, Calif. The previous youngest winner was Donald Thomas, who was four days older than Busch when he won in Atlanta in November 1952.

Last year: Jeremy Mayfield won his first race in more than four years and advanced to the championship chase by taking the Chevrolet 400.

Fast facts: This is the final race before the Chase for the Nextel Cup championship. Only the top 10 drivers in the standings will be eligible to contend for the title in the last 10 races of the season. Just 62 points separate eighth-place Matt Kenseth from 13th-place Elliott Sadler. … Dale Earnhardt Jr. officially was eliminated from championship contention after finishing 38th at California. … Ricky Rudd attended the funeral of his father last Friday, arrived in California from Virginia the next day, then finished ninth in the race. Rudd’s father, Al, a former racer himself, died Tuesday.

Next race: Sylvania 300, Sept. 18, Loudon, N.H.

On the Net:


Emerson Radio 250

Race distance: 187.5 miles, 250 laps.

Last race: Carl Edwards took control late in the Ameriquest 300 and drove away to an easy victory at California Speedway. Edwards fell to eighth when he made his final pit stop during a caution period on lap 113 of the 150-lap event before charging to the front after the green flag.

Last year: Robby Gordon went from third to first in a three-car battle with 15 laps to go and held to win the Emerson 250.

Fast facts: Clint Bowyer cut Martin Truex Jr.’s lead in the standings to 142 points with his third-place finish at California. … Mark Martin has five wins, 13 top-five finishes and 18 top-10 showings over 24 career Busch starts at Richmond.

Race distance: 150 miles, 200 laps.

Last race: Mike Skinner led all but 10 laps and won in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck series for the first time since 1996 by turning back a late challenge from Todd Bodine. Skinner, a former champion, left in 1997 to race in the Nextel Cup series. He returned last year to compete full time in the trucks. His victory in the O’Reilly 200 at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway on Aug. 24 was his 17th on the circuit.

Last year: Ted Musgrave led all but 10 laps and held off teammate Jamie McMurray in an aborted two-lap sprint to the finish and won the Kroger 200 at Richmond, Va.

Fast facts: Accidents at Bristol hurt two of the series championship contenders. Dennis Setzer’s lead dropped to 143 points over Musgrave when he crashed into the outside wall and finished 16th. Defending champion Bobby Hamilton was involved in a five-truck accident and remains third in the standings, but is 257 points behind Setzer with eight races remaining. … Ron Hornaday Jr. is expected to compete against his son, Ronnie III, in this race. … The series will not return to Richmond in 2006. …

Next race: Sylvania 200, Sept. 17, Loudon, N.H.

On the Net:

Race distance: 190.476 miles, 44 laps.

Last race: Juan Pablo Montoya won the Italian Grand Prix from the pole despite having tire problems on the final laps. It was the sixth victory of Montoya’s career and second at Monza, where he won his first Grand Prix race in 2001.

Last year: Michael Schumacher clinched his seventh F1 championship at the Belgian Grand Prix despite not winning for just the second time in 14 races in 2004. Schumacher finished second behind Kimi Raikkonen, but still earned his fifth straight drivers’ title

Fast facts: Fernando Alonso could clinch the championship this weekend. Alonso holds a 27-point lead over Raikkonen with four races remaining. Wins are worth 10 points each. … Schumacher’s championship reign is over following his 10th-place finish at Monza, which mathematically eliminated him from contention. … Ferrari has not earned a point in either of the last two races.

Next race: Brazilian Grand Prix, Sept. 25, Sao Paulo.

Race distance: 300 miles, 200 laps.

Last race: Tony Kanaan took advantage of teammate Dan Wheldon’s misfortune to move into the lead, then ran away from the rest of the field to win the Regent Mortgage Indy Grand Prix at Infineon Raceway on Aug. 28. Kanaan beat Buddy Rice by 1.182 seconds — about eight car lengths — for his second IRL IndyCar win of the season. Kanaan averaged 91.040 mph around Infineon’s 12-turn, 2.26-mile track in the first IRL race held on a road course.

Last year: Adrian Fernandez won the Delphi Indy 300 in Joliet. The race featured a scary crash by Buddy Rice, who walked away unscathed despite his car skidding upside down along the track.

Fast facts: Ryan Briscoe won his first career pole at Sonoma, but triggered a three-car crash during the race that also took out Helio Castroneves and Danica Patrick. … Sam Hornish Jr. went out on the first lap at Sonoma with a broken gearbox and dropped from second to third in the point standings.
