NASCAR headed to the land of open wheel racing this weekend for the Brickyard 400. It was Travis Pastrana who led the news this week after he broke his right foot and ankle in a motorcycle wreck games. The accident delayed Pastrana’s much anticipated NASCAR Nationwide Series debut this weekend at Lucas Oil Raceway Park. In other news, Richard Childress Racing announced this week Luke Lambert would replace Todd Berrier as crew chief for Jeff Burton. Burton has languished this season, sitting 25th in the points without a single top-10 finish. And finally speculation continues about the future of Carl Edwards at Roush Fenway Racing. Officials from Ford said this weekend they had an unspecified offer to Edwards to keep him at Roush. Edwards has remained mum on his plans. This is the NASCAR week that was, July 24 to 30, 2011.
