  KENTUCKIANA MOTORSPORTS PRESENTED BY LUCAS OIL

 

  It will be a busy few weeks in NASCAR.  Next up for the stars of the Cup Series: Dover, Kansas, and Darlington. It's a time where teams need to start getting it all together. Once Charlotte and the long Memorial Day Holiday weekend arrives, drivers and crews face a long summer of non-stop tense action. Every decision, every point, and every mistake count.

 

  NASCAR got a huge lift after Talladega. Honestly, the race really wasn't that exciting until the final 15 laps. Then came another fantastic finish as Tyler Reddick edged Brad Keselowski, Martin Truex Jr., Noah Gragson, and Michael McDowell to get the ever so close win. Multiple cars in the final stretch crashed, and even turned on the side to take the checkered flag. There were no injuries, that is good news. Reddick was in the right place at the right time!

 More importantly, the sport of stock car racing and NASCAR got a mega boost. Reddick's car is owned by NBA great Michael Jordon (Along with Denny Hamlin), a longtime racing fan who grew up in North Carolina. Jordan was was beyond excited with the win for his 23XI race team.  Hugging team members, family, kids, and others on his way to Victory Lane. Instead cutting away and going to other programming after the Reddick win, and also cutting extended post-race coverage as it has done in the past,  FOX Sports stayed with it. They interviewed all involved and let it flow. And that includes veteran race reporter Jamie Little and her  one-on-one with Michael Jordan. He finally was at the track when his team won!  Jordan is an international super star and then some. He was gracious, humble, and very happy.  His presence alone gave NASCAR instant worldwide headlines.  Something that rarely happens outside of the Daytona 500 or the season ending championship race. Congrats to Reddick, Jordan, Hamlin, Fox Sports, NASCAR, and the fans!

   

  It is probably an easy prediction. The next great NASCAR star will be Jesse Love. The 19- year old won the 2023 ARCA Championship. At Talladega in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, Love weaved in and out of traffic, saved fuel, and masterfully charged to the front to take his first Xfinity win.  Love is in the stable of Richard Childress Racing.  Childress is a smart owner. We expect Love to be with the team for a very long time.  I doubt anyone will ever catch the all-time record owned by Kyle Busch in NASCAR wins. But Jesse Love has Kyle Busch greatness. Let's also toss in a young Jeff Gordon or a cool racer like Darrell Waltrip. Love is the real deal! You will enjoy watching him!

 

      In the Indy Car Series,  Scott Dixon is back to his old winning ways. Dixon kept a steady hand, especially in the closing laps, to win at Long Beach. He last won there nearly a decade ago. Colton Herta, who was charging quickly, could not get around Dixon. He finished second. Up next for the Indy Car Series, this weekend in Alabama. And soon thereafter, the excitement leading up to the Indianapolis 500. 

 

     In the NHRA, there will be plenty of action this weekend at Charlotte.  In the last event, fans witnessed some great action at the NHRA 4-Wide Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.  In Top Fuel, Doug Kalitta enjoyed the top spot on the podium. Jeg Coughlin Jr. claimed Pro Stock, and Bob Tasca III  got just the third triple holeshot win in NHRA Mission Foods Drag Racing Series history claiming his first career four-wide victory.   Lucas Oil  is a major sponsor of the NHRA. 

  In 2024, Kentuckiana Motorsports will continue to have fun and provide information on all levels of racing.  Lucas Oil has been and continues to be a major sponsor of what we do. coverage for more than two decades.  Kentuckiana Motorsports started with a half hour program and specials on cable, then a major television channel, and as media has transformed, online and social media.

Race teams know you have to be in strong mental, emotional, and physical shape to wheel a competitive car or truck around the track.  Running 100 short track  or 500 big laps can be challenging for a driver. Seconds count when hitting the pits for service.  A crew must be fast and make no mistakes.  And all must be physically ready.  Then there are wrecks!  A car slams into a wall or a racer is caught up in a multiple car mishap.  Safety equipment has improved greatly over the years. Still, drivers and crew members get medical help for aches and pains. And that includes back and spinal care.  

Locally, Dr. Paul Constante with Dynamic Chiropractic has helped treat college, pro, high school, and other athletes for years. The list of Louisville area patients includes racers.  Professionals and every day people also turn to Dr. Constante and his team for chiropractic care and treatment. He serves patients from Kentucky and Southern Indiana.  Learn more at: www.louisvillespineandinjury.com
