Loudon, New Hampshire is the site of the F.W. Webb 200 this week. We have Ryan Truex making his return as well as Travis Pastrana. After the craziness of Daytona, Loudon gives teams a chance to race more calmly.

For those of you who are interested F. W. Webb is a company that creates Plumbing, Heating and Cooling Services as well as manufacturing Pipes and Valves. Check them out here.

Look for some good runs from the Nationwide regulars this week. I'm expecting Danica Patrick to improve from her finish her last year as she almost always improves her finishes at tracks she has already been at and I'm thiniing Stnehouse Jr. might show that he's not out of the Championship hunt just yet! I'm not expecting a good run from Dillon though as he is not too comfortable with the track just yet, but then again he has surprised most of us this year so he just might have a good run anyway. Another cat that I think might pull off a good finish is Ryan Truex - just watch, I think you might be surprised!

All 43 teams entered will make the race. Just a few notes this week:

  • #3- Austin Dillon was penalized for the second straight week and his championship chances are taking a hit.
  • #12- Sam Hornish is pulling double duty again thanks to Allmendinger getting suspended.
  • #18- Ryan Truex will get a turn in the #18 Toyota this week. Truex could be a full time driver next year.
  • #30- Jamie McMurray will make a start for Turner Motorsports this week. With the Truck Series off in Iowa, Turner couldn't pull from his talented roster of Truck Stars to fill his third team this week.
  • #86- Kevin Lepage joins a brand new team under Scott Deware. Deware picked a good race as he will not have to worry about qualifing for the event.

It's Saturday Afternoon Racing Live from New Hampshire Motor Speedway! Tune in at 2:30 Eastern Time on ESPN for the Live running of the F.W. Webb 200! Enjoy!
