This will be the only time I say "The Lady In Black": The VFW Sport Clips Help a Hero 200 Preview

The Nationwide Series heads to Darlington this weekend, so expect a hard fought race. If you're over the age of 21 and you are looking for one of those 'drink when ... ' games, have a swig of your favorite NASCAR endorsed alcoholic beverage every time the term "Darlington Stripe" is used - I have a feeling you'll be hearing that a lot! Please Note: do not take a drink every time Danica Patrick is shown or mentioned because you will die of alcohol poisoning.

Eric McClure will miss the race this week as he is recovering from a concussion and other injuries sustained last week at Talladega. Jeff Green will be given the shot at running a full race this week when he fills in for McClure.

(i)- Not Running For Title
(S)- Start and Park Team

There are only 43 teams entered, so everyone will make the race.

Just a few notes:

  • #10- Tony Raines will take up the start and park TriStar team this week as Jeff Green moves to the #14 to fill in for Eric McClure.
  • #24- Looks like Benny Gordon is done. Casey Roderick is in the car this week and could be a start and park.
  • #39- Josh Richards makes a second start for Go Green Racing.
  • #99- Travis Pastrana will make his second start in the Nationwide Series. His first start was very solid and Pastrana should look for a top ten.

Tune in at 7pm Friday for the Live running of the VFW Sport Clips Help a Hero 200 from Darlington. Enjoy!
