The most recent race in the US NASCAR series was held at the Phoenix Raceway in Arizona – Corey Lajoie is happy about the birth of his son

NASCAR Cup Series

The fourth race of the NASCAR Cup Series season is in the books and the fans saw the first double winner of the 2020 season. Joey Logano has secured his second win of the season after his victory in Las Vegas. In a exciting race, the Penske driver beat “Cactus King” Kevin Harvick at the Phoenix Raceway.

During the week there was also great news in the house of the Lajoies. Levi Ronni Lajoie has seen the light of day. On the social media, the Go Fas Racing driver announced that he is still unable to really grasp the birth of his son and that he is overjoyed.

Furthermore, Ryan Blaney has extended his contract with Penske for several years. The 26-year-old will thus remain loyal to the team for many more seasons. The mission is clear: Blaney wants to get the chance to become NASCAR champion one day. Penske is certainly one of the best teams in the field to achieve this goal.

Ryan Newman has brought an update on his health. He speaks of a head injury he sustained in the accident at the Daytona International Speedway. The Roush Fenway driver said he was unconscious and could not remember some parts of the race. It takes time for the injury to heal and for him to get back into a race car.

To prevent the spread of the corona virus, NASCAR has taken measures for the upcoming events. Direct contact with people is to be restricted, which is why spectators will not be able to get as close to their heroes during the drivers presentation. Driver briefings will take place under the open sky and drivers will be asked to sign their autograph cards before they arrive.

NASCAR Xfinity Series

For Joe Gibbs Racing, the NASCAR Xfinity Series race in Phoenix was a real feast for the eyes. Three of the team’s drivers finished in the top 3, while Brandon Jones won the race. Harrison Burton and Kyle Busch, who once again had a double start, ended up second and third.

Fans of Tony Stewart will get their money’s worth at the 2020 Xfinity race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. For the first time, the second NASCAR division will use the road course of the traditional motorsport facility. The three-time Cup champion will not want to miss this opportunity, which is why he will participate in the race for Stewart-Haas Racing.
