    Oops forgot about this! At Darlington Kevin Harvick wins after passing Dale Jr. With 2tg on a GWC. Johnson comes home in 3rd. Jeff Gordon keeps his points lead. Kenseth and Edwards are stalking him in the points. [-News-] Gene Haas has announced that he is planning on making a F1 team. None of his Stewart-haas drivers will be driving in it though. Subway recently is looking for sponsor in F1. This could become a deal. Lack of funding for the team of Swan Racing (Parker Kligerman and Cole Whitt) May cause it to shutdown. Team spokesman says that lack of funds has been an issue of lately but they plan to keep on going.
