NASCAR Mexico led the news this week after the death of driver Carlos Pardo. Pardo, who had one Nationwide start and six Camping World East Series starts, was killed Sunday in an accident during a race at Autodromo Miguel E. Abed in the city of Puebla. General Motors also made headlines this week as they informed teams what cuts they would make in the sport. No word exactly what those cuts are. And finally another week, more Jeremy Mayfield news. On Tuesday NASCAR filed an affidavit accusing Mayfield expert Harvey MacFenerstein of lying about his credentials. MacFenerstein said he told Mayfield lawyer John Buric his credentials were incorrect in the original affidavit. On Wednesday chassis builder and parts supplier Triad Racing Technologies sued Jeremy Mayfield for $86,304.55 for parts and services. This is the NASCAR week that was June 14 to 20, 2009.
