The “News” and Notes at The Glen


—Keep an eye out for the 32 car this weekend, which is sporting a nice “throwback” paint scheme in the style of the old Penske AMC Matadors.  Of course, Boris Said is driving it, so keep an eye in the general vicinity of Greg Biffle.
...no, not THAT NWA...

—If you want to know what the “new normal” is in a more cost-conscious Nascar, David Ragan running for Michael Waltrip in 2016 is WISHFUL THINKING FOR HIM.

—Tomy Drissi will be running a “Straight Outta Compton” paint scheme in Saturday’s Xfinity race.  That’s not a joke.

—Erik Jones will be running Xfinity full-time in 2016, with a few Cup races possibly thrown-in with a satellite team or a JGR R&D car.  Is it what he wanted?  Well, see if he’ll answer questions about it—if so, then he’s happy.


—Nascar IS prepared for rain this weekend with Goodyear rain tires, but they might NOT be prepared for Bodines.
