Daniel Hemric and Johnny Sauter talk about how the rain will affect the trucks in the Drivin’ for Linemen 200 brought to you by Ameren at Gateway Motorsports Park.
Tire issue derails champ's chances at win No. 3 of 2015 BROOKLYN, Mich. -- The road to the championship wasn’t exactly a smooth one for Kevin Harvick and his Stewart-Haas Racing team in 2014. Early-season issues often stymied the team. Fast cars were sidelined by funky occurrences, broken parts, flat tires. But Harvick and the team persevered. When the issues didn’t surface, there was no one better, no car faster. The end result was the 2014 Sprint Cup Series championship, Harvick’s first and the second for SHR. The momentum from last year’s title run hasn’t subsided. Heading into Sunday’s Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway , Harvick already had two wins (at Las Vegas and Phoenix) and an incredible eight runner-up finishes. No one else has been so close so often to the checkered flag, yet so far. But on Sunday, the gremlins returned. Although he led a race-high 63 laps in a race shortened by rain to only 138 of its scheduled 200 , a flat tire caused by an errant lug nut buried the No. 4 Chevrolet deep in the field. Smashed them all day damn proud of my boys. Lug nut knocked the valve stem off and the tire went flat. #dumbluck — Kevin Harvick (@KevinHarvick) June 14, 2015 Bummer day for the 4 team.... A big, big shoutout to all the fans who weathered the storms. Y’all are the most loyal fans ever!! — DeLana Harvick (@DeLanaHarvick) June 14, 2015 Teammate Kurt Busch was out front when the skies opened up again, and took home the trophy. Who knows? Had the race run its scheduled distance, with a couple of well-timed cautions it’s possible the team could have found itself back in the hunt. But it didn’t, the team didn’t and at the soggy end of a long day, the scoreboard in the infield showed the No. 4 29th in the final rundown. Harvick’s fared worse this year -- he finished 38th at Bristol in April after being collected in a chain-reaction accident shortly after a restart. He led a race-best 184 laps at Bristol before the incident. It rained in that race as well. “Once we were in front we were basically just cruising the entire day,” Childers said of Sunday’s effort. “We had a good car and the guys at the shop did a really good job. Really didn’t have any issues all weekend. “It’s aggravating to give them away like that. I felt like we had the best car. When we pitted, there were some guys that stayed out … maybe it would have worked out for us but it’s hard to say.” Harvick, who had qualified No. 2 on Friday, was out front at Lap 119 when he hit pit road under a round of green-flag pit stops. But after returning to the track, a flat right front tire caused when a lug nut knocked the valve stem off the wheel sent him back to the pits. Childers said the team found the cause of the problem after going back and looking at video of the initial pit stop. “One of the lug nuts that had come off the first wheel bounced off the changer’s leg and right when the other wheel was going in, (the lug nut) was in mid-air and he caught it (with the wheel),” he said. “We’ve changed all kinds of stuff to keep it from happening and haven’t had it happen since Dover (last year). … I don’t even know how to fix it. Definitely got to do something though.” After a week off, the Sprint Cup Series rolls back into action at Sonoma (Calif.) Raceway for the season’s first road-course stop on June 28. Childers said his driver and team are more than up to the task. “We’re just going there to win,” he said. “We had the best car there last year … so I feel good about it. We’ll do the best job we can and hopefully it’s good enough. “Kevin and all the guys are on it. If we keep doing what we’re doing, we’ll be alright.” FULL SERIES COVERAGE • Latest news • Standings • Schedule
Chicagoland Truck Series race will be run at 7 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 2 JOLIET, Ill. -- Friday night's Lucas Oil 225 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race was postponed by rain. The race, stop No. 15 of 22 for the series, was moved to Saturday evening at 7 p.m. ET, broadcast on FOX Sports 2. Showers which hit the Joliet area earlier in the day washed out Truck Series qualifying, as well as qualifying for Sprint Cup teams and practice for the Nationwide Series. Sprint Cup teams were able to complete their one scheduled practice without interruption. Truck Series teams completed two practices sessions Thursday, allowing NASCAR officials to determine Saturday night's starting lineup based on combined speeds. Points leader Johnny Sauter will start on the pole, with Brennan Newberry in the No. 2 spot. Jeb Burton, former series champion Austin Dillon and Ryan Blaney round out the top five. Earlier this year, two Truck Series events (at Martinsville, Va., and Bristol, Tenn.) were run a day later than originally scheduled due to inclement weather.

Kevin Harvick will also start from the front row in Sunday’s Quicken Loans 400 RELATED: Full qualifying results " See the 43-car lineup BROOKLYN, Mich. – Kevin Harvick had his sights set on a clean sweep of knockout qualifying at Michigan International Speedway —until Kasey Kahne had other ideas late in Friday’s final round. Kahne sped around the two-mile track in 35.645 seconds (201.992 mph) to knock Harvick off the pole for Sunday's Quicken Loans 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race (1 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1, MRN, SiriusXM). Harvick, who posted a 201.613 mph lap in the final session, had topped the charts in the first two rounds, matching Kahne's pole-winning time in the second. The Coors Light Pole Award was Kahne's first of the season and the 27th of his career—but his first since the October 2012 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Kansas Speedway . Brad Keselowski (201.449 mph) qualified third, followed by Carl Edwards (201.067 mph) and Ryan Blaney (201.056 mph), who is running a partial schedule in the No. 21 Wood Brothers Ford. With a 2012 repaving project having narrowed the racing groove at Michigan, Kahne underscored the value of starting up front—and staying there. "It's going to be really important," said Kahne, who also gets the benefit of selecting pit stall No. 1., closest to the exit from pit road. "The track is going to change a lot, though, come Sunday, with all the racing going on this weekend and then our practices (on Saturday). "The track will be a lot different Sunday. So, there will be some passing for sure, but it's not going to be easy. So track position will play a big role in being there at the end of the race." Harvick remains the only driver to sweep all three rounds of qualifying at a single track, a feat he accomplished last year at Michigan and Indianapolis, but he fell .067 seconds of doing so for a third time. "I don't know that I got everything out of it (the final lap), but the rounds were within seven hundredths (of a second) of each other, " Harvick said. "The guys were doing a great job, and Kasey just got a little bit better lap there than we did." With possible rain in the forecast, Blaney was nervous as qualifying approached, but not because of the competition. If rain had washed out time trials, the Wood Brothers Racing car would not have made the field, based on fewest qualifying attempts this season—a product of a limited schedule. "It was funny the way it played out," Blaney said. "It looked like two cells coming at us (on the radar), and a small slit in the middle of them, and we passed right through that slit. That was just kind of lucky for us. "Like I said, it would have stung knowing how good of a car we had in practice if qualifying rained out. We're fortunate to get it in, and it's a bonus to have a good race car." Brendan Gaughan , who unlike Blaney would have benefited from a rainout, failed to make the 43-car field.
