Labonte brothers’ bond at Indy strong as brick (NASCAR.com)

Labonte, 50, has seen and done his share. Penrose Pickled Sausage sponsored his No. 44 Oldsmobile and as far as sponsors go, you just can’t beat that. He was the first driver with championships in both the Cup and Nationwide series, and one of less than two dozen with at least one win in Sprint Cup, Nationwide and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Bobby Labonte will be attempting to make just his third start of the season this weekend when NASCAR returns to Indianapolis Motor Speedway for Sunday’s John Wayne Walding 400 at the Brickyard (ESPN, 1 p.m. ET).

Schrader won’t let age slow his racing days (NASCAR.com)

Though the Mudsummer Classic at Eldora Speedway marked Ken Schrader’s first race of the year in any NASCAR national series, he’s quick to point out that he’s far from retired. “This is our 14th race in July,” Schrader said Wednesday, the 23rd day of the month. Schrader, 59, looked right at home back in NASCAR, driving to a steady fourth-place finish in the second NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event on the half-mile dirt track. Schrader retired from a career in NASCAR’s top division that spanned parts of four decades after last season, but he’s stayed occupied with plenty of recreational racing at short tracks across the country.
