Tissot, a manufacturer of Swiss watches since 1853, will be featured as co-primary sponsor of the No. 7 Chevrolet this weekend at Kansas along with GoDaddy.com. Tissot has been a partner of JR Motorsports since 2010 and this marks its third race in as many years as co-primary sponsor of Danica Patrick and the No. 7. JRM AT INTERMEDIATE TRACKS - The JR Motorsports team’s best finish at 1.5-mile facilities this season came at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Kentucky Speedway, where Cole Whitt finished sixth. All totaled, the teams have five top-10s (Whitt with four and Patrick with one) and finished 14th or better in eight of the nine races at 1.5-mile tracks. Its average finish in those races is 12.3. ADDITIONAL PRACTICE SESSION FOR NNS - Both JR Motorsports Chevrolets will join the Nationwide Series in participating in an additional four hour practice session at Kansas Speedway on Thursday, Oct. 18, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. local time. The extensive practice will serve as a test session for teams, who will see track action for the first time since the speedway’s update added new pavement and variable banking in the corners. 88 TEAM CHASSIS INFO - The 88 team will race chassis 746 this weekend in Kansas. This chassis was previously used by the 7 team in the September races at Chicagoland and Kentucky. It also tested at Nashville earlier this month. 7 TEAM CHASSIS INFO - Patrick is scheduled to drive chassis 613 at Kansas Speedway this weekend. She is averaging a finish of 12.6 with this chassis and piloted it DANICA PATRICK ON KANSAS: “We’re definitely going to get plenty of laps this weekend with both series combined. I do feel like it’s nice to go out in the Cup car first. It’s the faster car and helps me push a little harder when I get in the Nationwide car and be more comfortable. Everything happens so much slower in the Nationwide car. Everything from driving down the straights to getting in the gas, it’s all a little more lethargic. I think that will be a good scenario for me this weekend. The biggest challenge will just be getting up to speed.” COLEWHITT ON KANSAS: “Sometimes all it takes is one week to get your season turned around. This series gives you another opportunity every week, and we want to utilize that the best we can. Our intermediate program is good, but we want to contend for race wins. With the competition level where it’s at, you always need to be progressing. There are weeks where I feel we’ve improved as a team and I’ve improved as a driver. Then we’ll experience a setback and you feel like you’ve got to start all over again. It’s been a rollercoaster year that’s for sure. We’ll do our best to make the most of these final four races.”
