NASCAR turns to softer tires to goose All-Star race

The annual 600-mile race, scheduled May 28 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, will feature four stages.

OneMain Financial, established in 1912 in Baltimore, has extended more than $120 billion in loans to more than 10 million customers throughout the country to help with debt consolidation, home improvement projects, auto purchases and more.

The longest race on the NASCAR schedule will now be one of the most valuable. "As a proud sponsor of Elliott Sadler and the No. 1 JR Motorsports race team, this sponsorship is a flawless fit and a great way for OneMain to support our community and NASCAR fans everywhere".

NASCAR on Monday said the Coca-Cola 600 will be split into four stages when it is run at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Memorial Day weekend.

"We're delighted to add OneMain Financial as an entitlement sponsor to our NASCAR XFINITY Series race", said Mike Tatoian, Dover International Speedway's president and CEO. Well, it offers another chance to add stage points and one more playoff point - which are crucial for the postseason - up for grabs.

Another NASCAR tripleheader weekend returns to the Monster Mile from September 29-Oct.

Mormon church to cut ties to Boy Scouts teen programs
KUTV reported that the church did not believe boys between 14 and 18 are "being served well" by the Varsity or Venturing programs. The programs the church uses with the Boy Scouts of America are only available in the USA and Canada.

Miller indicated the stage formats for the remaining races on the Monster Energy Series schedule this year were likely to stay the same, but that competition officials would make a customary review of any potential enhancements ahead of next season. With the addition of the fourth stage, all stages will be 100 laps.

Not only is NASCAR making major rules swings nearly every offseason these days, the sanctioning body has yet again changed the rules in the middle of the season.

At 600 miles, the race is the longest by 100 miles over anything else on the NASCAR calendar and is considered a crown jewel event of the season. The test of endurance is greater. "It's only fitting that teams have an opportunity to be rewarded for the extra effort required to win at the 600". You don't blow a whistle in the middle of a basketball game and tell everyone free throws are now worth 10 points apiece, just like you don't change the fundamental rules in the middle of the season.

"There was a lot of skepticism with the fan base starting out, and I think a large part of that is just change".
