INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana — Rain played havoc with the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in Pennsylvania on Sunday. After a two-hour rain delay, NASCAR officials decided to postpone the Sunoco Red Cross Pennsylvania 500 until Monday, after the weather moved out of the Long Pond area.
The Monday race day didn't matter to two of the three Penske Racing drivers, as they landed in the top-10 as the checkered flew. Sam Hornish Jr. drove his No. 77 PPG Transitions/Mobil 1 Dodge to a career-best finish in the fourth position; Kurt Busch, his teammate in the No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge finished in the ninth place. Their teammate David Stremme finished 32nd.
On Saturday in Iowa, the NASCAR Nationwide Series made its debut at the Iowa Speedway in Newton, Ia. While it was the series first visit to the track, Penske Racing's Justin Allgaier is no stranger to it, as he had competed at the track in the past with the ARCA RE/MAX Series. At the end of the U.S. Cellular 250 presented by Northland Oil and TMC Trucking, Allgaier finished in the 15th position.
Ringers' supporter Brendan Gaughan finished 25th.
Both the Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series head to Watkins Glen International for their respective events.
The Firestone Indy Lights and the IndyCar Series competed at the Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Ky., on Saturday.
After a fiery accident during a pit stop at the previous race, the No. 11 Team 7-Eleven entry rallied back at the Meijer Indy 300 to collect a podium finish, finishing third; Andretti Green Racing team car of the No. 26 Meijer car finished 10th, with the No. 27 Formula Dream entry finishing 13th.
The AGR/AFS Racing Firestone Indy Lights cars ran the Kentucky 100 earlier in the day on the 1.5-mile track. The No. 27 Automatic Fire Sprinklers collected another podium finish on the season in the second position. The No. 26 ARPRO team car had mechanical issues and was scored in the 17th position.
