Will hang over all that is happening this weekend at Talladega: death and Wheldon. Every driver of a Sprint Cup has seen the terrible accident that takes video life two times winner of the Indy 500 last Sunday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in the final season of IndyCar racing. Seven days later, NASCAR stopped the fastest–and most dangerous-songs.
And make no mistake: it will be dangerous on the 2.66-mile tri-oval is located in the heart of Alabama. NASCAR widened the hole in the plate restrictor for this race, which should translate into seven to ten extra horsepower in cars-approximately three to four miles or more per hour of speed. Also, NASCAR engine cooling packages so that tweaked the car will have the opportunity to overheat if they walk on the nose-tail, two-car tandems for over half a lap or more.
NASCAR is hoping that this rule change will make it harder for drivers to draft together. So (and this is just an educated guess) there should be more two and three whole package race on Sunday, which in turn will increase the likelihood of a big one: a multiple-car crash ' Dega has long been known. Given the current context and liver weight in the garage – many of NASCAR's close friends with Wheldon, who was one of the most charismatic figures in American Motorsports-I truly hope that, after the green flag waves, drivers will be as careful and hold on the track because they have been in recent memory.
I want to win on Sunday? Here are five drivers I will be watching closely.
Edwards knows all about ' Dega huge one. In the fall of 2008 he is stuck in a big accident while the man he had fought for the Championship, Jimmie Johnson, niftily avoided tempest spins, smoking, out-of-control car. Edwards finished 29th that afternoon, Johnson in the ninth. Six weeks later, Johnson defeated candidate Edwards for the Championship. And so yes, Edwards, current points leader, essentially had lost the title at Talladega before.

Added, in Asia, SAC-katung component manufacturers also exists in China, Taiwan, Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines.
Meanwhile, the biggest car manufacturer Daihatsu in Indonesia, is reported to have turned his supply of components previously imported from Japan to Thailand-to the production of the Avanza Xenia launched All-new next week.

The UCLA meet Arizona Thursday night that the last of three straight games, and ESPN's mark, yet again, go back into the fray to football quarterback Kevin Prince. Washington fans will remember that this is a midfielder who is committed to the UW (under Tyrone Willingham), but reversed field after Rick Neuheisel got a job with the UCLA before the 2008 season.
The Prince has been maligned a bunch–especially by Bruins fans who booed him for performance against Texas, September 17,–but I have always believed there was a quarterback in there waiting to happen under his injuries range, endless. Maybe it comes from the November 7, 2009, the day he and the Bruins played Washington in the Rose Bowl.
As a student in the shining, the Prince completed 13 of 17 passes for 212 yards–in less than half. Then he collided with UW linebacker Donald Butler on scrambling and performed in the day, Butler get flagged for a personal foul for contact with the Prince's helmet.
I asked Neuheisel Tuesday in the Pac-10 Conference Prince what state of mind is now. He entered the game WSU CATALOG October 8 and was rescued after Richard Brehaut went down with a broken foot.
"He is in a good place mentally," said Neuheisel. "He is excited about this opportunity. He came off the bench against the State of Washington and awesome. He wanted to build it. The team believe in him. I thought it was set up perfectly for him. "
Race to the market: after a glittering career at Summit Motorsports, Gordon Murray's toughest challenge yet.
In the industry that offer living legend may be more than the others, Prof. Gordon Murray enjoyed the status of the mostly elevated. F1 Champ Car he designed for the Brabham and McLaren have made him one of the most successful engineer in the history of the sport, while the McLaren F1 road car was the first to use carbon-fibre monocoque and naturally aspirated remains the world's fastest production car.
Little surprise then, that when early last year Murray took the wraps off the diminutive T25 city car and announced his intention to revolutionise the world of low-carbon, low-cost vehicle, the wider automotive industry sit up and take notice.
On the surface, moving from designing supercars for super minis is a surprising change of direction. But like Murray recently told The engineers, it was just the latest chapter in the career characterized by restless search for the next difficult challenges.
' It is the nature of my character I think, ' he said. ' I've always loved new challenges and I get a little "has nothing to do,". In 20 years in F1 I win, I think, five championships and more than 50 races, and I thought: If I keep doing this, what I would have won six or seven may, or may not win another one? I have been desperate for change. '
