What else is coming down the NASCAR pike?

Start: Carl Edwards, Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota leads
Brad Keselowski, Team Penske Ford
Start: Martin Truex Jr., Furniture Row Racing Toyota leads

One-day shows for the top touring series — including the newly named Monster Energy Cup Series.

When Brad Keselowski was asked whether the driver’s council is behind the decision, he replied, “I think the whole sport is. We’re trying to be smart with our time, especially with late starts. We’d like to see — because you don’t get home to see your family until two, three in the morning if you’re on a race team, so you lose part of Monday, too — so you have to find a way to get that day back and tie it all together.

“If you move qualifying closer to the race, you get that day back which is so important to everyone’s quality of life in this sport.”

Between racing, sponsor and team commitments, Keselowski says he has enough free time to be happy. “Just that much,” Keselowski added. “Everybody is a little bit different. But Christmas is a good time.”
