NASCAR makes its second trip to Michigan this weekend as the Silly Season kicked into high gear. Hendrick Motorsports and Kasey Kahne led the news this week as they announced Red Bull Racing would be Kahne’s home for 2011. What car Kahne will be in, and who his teammates will be is not clear. In other news Richard Childress Racing announced this week Paul Menard would join the organization as its fourth team in 2011. Menard joins the team after spending two seasons with Yates Racing and Richard Petty Motorsports. And finally Extenze Racing and Kevin Conway announced a ‘hiatus’ from NASCAR on Friday. It’s unclear if and when the team would return. This is the NASCAR week that was August 8 to 14, 2010.
