Scott Speed’s qualifying speed was not good enough to make field for the Sprint Cup Crown Royal Presents the Samuel Deeds 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
He ran a 45th quickest lap in the No. 95. Since the team is outside the top 35 in owners points and required to qualify on speed, he did not make the cut. Sat, Jul 27, 2013 04:54:00 PM

Scott Speed and Leavine Family Racing will be making another trip to the famous 2.5-mile oval for Sunday's Crown Royal Presents the Samuel Deeds 400 at The Brickyard Powered by BigMachineRecords.com.

Leavine Family Racing has made selected starts this year with an emphasis on the year's premier events. Few are any bigger than Sunday's race. Speed has been at his best in the big races. He had a pair of lead-lap finishes at Daytona in both events this season as well as at the Talladega Superspeedway, where he placed a Leavine Family Racing-best ninth-place finish in May.-Leavine Family Racing

Scott Speed can't wait for Saturday night's Coke Zero 400 at the Daytona for another good opportunity to drive the No. 95 Leavine Family Racing (LFR) Ford to Victory Lane.

Though the team makes selected appearances in the Cup Series, their strength has come at the two restrictor-plate tracks, including Daytona. A 23rd-place finish at the season-opening Daytona 500 and a ninth-place effort at the Aaron's 499 at the Talladega are the two best finishes for Speed and LFR this year. "Even at Daytona we led laps," Speed said. Speed has completed 877 of 886 laps in his career at Daytona.-Leavine Family Racing

Scott Speed and Leavine Family Racing will dedicate its efforts on Sunday to the victims of the West, Texas, explosion that killed 14 people, including 12 first responders.

The Texas-based team decided to bring awareness to the disaster with signage on Speed's No. 95 Ford Fusion for Sunday's race in the aftermath of the fiery explosion at the fertilizer plant near Waco, Texas. The roof to Speed's car will carry to the words: "West, Texas, Strong. Victims - Survivors - Heroes."-Leavine Family Racing

Scott Speed failed to make the field for the Sprint Cup NRA 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.

One of the ‘go-or-go-homers’ required to qualify on speed, he ran a 43rd fastest lap in the No. 95 Ford. This was not good enough to make the 43-car field.

Scott Speed's No. 95 Ford will carry Austin, Texas based TrackingPoint as the primary sponsor for the team's homecoming.

Team owners Bob and Sharon and the Leavine family are from Tyler, Texas, so TrackingPoint joins familiar territory, joining other Texas native sponsors like Tommy Williams Drywall (TWD) and B&D Electrical. The team also will provide exposure for "Besties with Testies" to commemorate National Testicular Cancer month, as well as TeaZa Herbal Energy Pouch. Leavine Family Racing made their Sprint Cup Series debut at Texas on April 9, 2011. Since then, it's been a constant for the team's selective schedule.-Leavine Family Racing

Scott Speed and Leavine Family Racing will keep their pirate colors for Sunday's Kobalt Tools 400 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The team set sail last week with a black No. 95 Ford Fusion at Phoenix, complete with a skull and crossbones designed by Sam Bass on the hood and the words "Surrender the Sponsor" across the trunk. The project got so much positive feedback, including associate sponsorships for the 267 lap event in Sin City, that the team decided to stick with it. After a lead-lap finish at the season-opening Daytona 500, Speed qualified 28th for last week's race at Phoenix. A brake issue eventually relegated him to a 41st-place finish.-Leavine Family Racing

Racing fans and potential sponsors alike won't be seeing a mirage when Scott Speed drives the all-black #95 Ford with the white skull and crossbones from Leavine Family Racing.

Across the back of the new Generation-6 race car will be the words: "Surrender the Sponsor." The race team is trying to build on the momentum of a 23rd-place finish at the season-opening Daytona 500. Part of that process is the continued search for a primary sponsor. "It is exciting just to see the hype about the #95," Speed said. "We are not trying to make this a money stunt; we're just trying to draw attention to our car. Hopefully, a potential sponsor will see this and want to be teamed up with us."(Leavine Family Racing)-jayski.com

Leavine Family Racing (LFR) will arrive at the Daytona 500 with a higher level of energy with the help of TeaZa™.

The revolutionary product will be an associate sponsor on the No. 95 Ford Fusion with driver Scott Speed for selected NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) races this year, including the season-opening Daytona 500. TeaZa™ comes in a small pouch that is placed between the lip and gum; the energy packed ingredients are then released and swallowed. LFR will start its preparation this Saturday for the Daytona 500. The team will qualify on Sunday, and return Feb. 21 for one of the two 150-mile Budweiser Shootout races that sets the field for the Daytona 500.-Integrity Sports Marketing

The Toyota/Save Mart 350 has been circled on Scott Speed’s calendar for months.

The road course was not originally on the selective race schedule for Leavine Family Racing’s No. 95 Ford Fusion, but Speed quickly convinced them of the benefits of racing through Northern California’s wine country. "The Sonoma Raceway is my home track," Speed said. "I have raced just about everything there. I raced my first open-wheel race there." Speed grew up in nearby Manteca. He has two starts at Sonoma in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, with a career-best 18th-place finish in 2010 while racing for Red Bull Racing.
