So it looks like Simona de Silvestro has left HVM Racing for KV Racing, where she will team up with Tony Kanaan in a Chevy powered car. For the first time in her career, she'll have an experienced teammate to learn from, no cobbled together cars named "porkchop," and no hamster-wheel powered Lotus engines keeping her laps off the pace. It should be interesting to see what she can do.

Greg Biffle pulled off a truly awesome move around the entire field at Talladega, avoiding the 25 car pileup to finish sixth. These screenshots only begin to tell the tale. Keep an eye on the 3M car if you find yourself Youtubing the wreck or catching a replay. It was truly championship caliber driving when he needed it most, after a shaky day that involved a couple close calls and near-disasters.
In his post race comments, Biffle lamented the lack of in-car camera, saying his view would've given ESPN some "million dollar shots." ESPN stayed true to form, promptly ignoring his accomplishment and failing to comment on or shine a spotlight on what he did.
Ladies and gentlemen, after displaying his ability to disappear in a cloud of Smoke when faced with a near-certain catastrophe and reemerge on the other side unscathed, I am forced to conclude that Greg Biffle is a wizard of some sort.

Kurt Busch did a very Kurt Busch thing today at Talladega. After running out of gas and damaging his car, safety workers rushed to where he came to a rest and were around his car when he decided to refire it and drive off. Apparently a "Hey guys, I'm going to drive back to pit road now" was beyond him. You know. Because he's a competitor. Or something.
Afterwards, Kurt hugged his crew members and fucked off to the 78 team, who he promises not to wreck out of the sport.
