This afternoon during the NASCAR Media Tour in Charlotte, Wood Bros. team co-owner Eddie Wood confirmed that its planned 2015 Sprint Cup schedule has been pushed to 18 races thanks to the tentative addition of six more events.

Our normal commitment is with Ford Motor Company and their Motorcraft and Quick Lane brands, and we’re gonna run our 12 races like we’ve been doing for the last few years," Eddie Wood said. "But we’re excited to say that we’ve been working really hard through our [technical] alliance with Team Penske, and we’ve tentatively added six races to our schedule. You want to race every week, and it kills you when you’re not there. We’re really thankful that we’re able to do that." The decision means more seat time for the team’s new driver, Ryan Blaney, who will also run part-time this year for both Penske in the XFINITY Series and Brad Keselowski Racing in the Camping World Truck Series.

Following a breakout year by the No. 43 team, including a historic win in the Coke Zero 400, the U.S. Air Force will once again join Richard Petty Motorsports and the iconic No. 43 Ford team as a primary partner.

Aric Almirola will once again pilot the No. 43 Air Force Racing Ford for the two most patriotic race weekends of the year: Memorial Day weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway and the Fourth of July weekend race at Daytona International Speedway.

For the second consecutive January, a sponsorship implosion suddenly has Jeb Burton scrambling for a NASCAR ride with only two weeks before the season.

A deal to keep him in a ThorSport Racing Toyota recently fell through for the Camping World Truck Series driver, who finished eighth in the 2014 points standings. The news comes exactly a year after sponsorship trouble knocked him from a ride with Turner Scott Motorsports. He landed with ThorSport a week later, and the part-time ride eventually grew into full time. His prospects seem bleaker this season. The son of 2002 Daytona 500 winner Ward Burton and nephew of NASCAR winner/NBC Sports analyst Jeff Burton brings cachet with a well-known surname, and he has produced results, too. He won at Texas (April 2013) in the 12th start of his truck career, and he also captured seven pole positions in his rookie season.

A time-honored tradition that reaches back to its inception in 1949 under the guidance of family patriarch Bill Kimmel, Sr., moves forward today with Bill Kimmel, Jr. at the helm. His son, Will Kimmel, a third-generation ARCA driver, is again set to steer the No. 69 Kimmel Racing Ford Fusion in ’15, the same number his grandfather wore in ’49.

Kimmel Racing has already tested the new ARCA Racing Series composite body at Salem and Daytona, and plans to be ready with it for the short track portion of the fast-approaching new season.
