The "Official Banzai Sunday Schedle" is

91st Indianapolis 500 in the morning.

Food, maybe a nap to rest up for the Coca-Cola 600.

Looks like Penske has the pole for both.

Who do you like?

Auto Racing | Two poles for Penske drivers

Latest NASCAR results

CONCORD, N.C. Ryan Newman and Kurt Busch gave Penske Racing a grip on the front row for the Coca-Cola 600. Now they hope to end Penske's drought at Lowe's Motor Speedway.

Newman won his 39th career pole Thursday with a lap at 185.312 mph. Busch, showing no ill effects after getting tangled up with brother Kyle in a wreck during last weekend's All-Star race, qualified second at 185.065.

Roger Penske has won 14 Indianapolis 500s as a car owner, and Penske driver Helio Castroneves will be on the pole Sunday. But Penske has never won a race at Charlotte.

Penske was eating dinner in Indianapolis when he got a phone call telling him his drivers will be on the pole for both of Sunday's races.

"We've never done that before. Now we need to win both races," Penske said. "We've come close but never done it."

Newman acknowledged there's pressure to put Penske in victory lane.

"He's only been trying here for like 20 years, so yeah, it would be special," said Newman, who will make his 200th career start Sunday.

Elliott Sadler qualified third, followed by Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Matt Kenseth.

Denny Hamlin was sixth, followed by Ricky Rudd, Dave Blaney, Bobby Labonte and David Stremme, giving Dodge five of the top 10 qualifiers.

Kasey Kahne of Enumclaw will start 18th, and Greg Biffle of Vancouver, Wash., qualified 38th.

With the race a 100 miles longer than any other NASCAR competition, the pole Sunday has less significance. The drama involved who would make the field. With 49 drivers entered, six missed the race.

That included Michael Waltrip, who failed to qualify for his 11th straight race after wrecking during his second qualifying lap.

Notes

Nextel Cup points leader Jeff Gordon has asked Mark Martin to be his replacement driver if Gordon's wife goes into labor on a race weekend. Gordon's wife, model Ingrid Vandebosch, is due to give birth to a girl in late June. Gordon, who has never missed a race, will leave the track if his wife goes into labor even though he would lose driver points.

Two-time world champion Fernando Alonso clocked the fastest times at the Monaco Grand Prix's opening practices in Monte Carlo and rookie teammate Lewis Hamilton crashed in the second run.

Talking

Hey guys,

Thought I would give you a quick run down of my weekend. It was my first race event for about 5 months, I have been spending a lot of time running my local club and was good to get out and race.

4wd Stock - Academy SBV2 Pro + Banzai CO27 - 10th Place
2wd Stock Truck - AE T4 + Banzai CO27 - 10th Place.

The event was up in Maitland which is in Northern NSW (1.5hours North of Sydney). The track was basically a dust bowl, but a very technical and enjoyable track to race.

While I only came 10th, I managed to scrape into two A Main's in a weekend with 2 cars that have not been out on a race track since they were purchased!. All the problems I had on the weekend were buggy/truck, the motors were amazing, no more than a quick blast with motor cleaner, re-oil and back out racing.

Having put 6 runs on each motor and just having them get stronger.... amazing!

The highlight of my weekend had to be during my second and third A Main, finals, granted I was being lapped, but turning a 2 foot gap into a 1 foot lead on the leader and one of the local area's best private motor guys down the back straight was something that put a smile all over my face!

Default Reedy race

Guys, I ended up in the D main this year at the reedy race. My qualifying time would of put me in the A main last year. The competition was crazy. The A main drivers in 19 turn spec class were doing mod times. I was 6 seconds off the finishing qualifying time.

Nothing overly exciting. Had a great time. Got to ride a Quad for the first time and I think I did alright. Only got stuck once and did not break anything.

Camping was fun! (I guess )
