I was listening to the race on MRN, and they said that Jimmy Johnson won the last ever "Bud Pole Award". When did this occurr? "Bud" is not sponsering the "Pole Award" anymore? Who is next year?

Has NASCAR secured a sponser yet for the "Pole Award"?

I have not heard of a decision as of yet, on who will replace Bud on the Pole Award.

"The five-year, $20 million deal includes renaming the Sprint Cup pole award to the Coors Light Pole Award from the Bud Pole Award, but does not impact the Budweiser Shootout exhibition race that annually kicks off Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway. The speedway will hold the Bud Shootout in February."

Coors sponsors the pole award but the aren't sponsoring the race for the pole winners? Something is wrong there. I don't think the reporter has all the facts straight on that one. I could be wrong though.

Just think about all the changes that have been made since Sprint/ Nextel took over Cup racing. It's not even the same racing as when Winston had the sponsorship. IMO all of the changes they are making are killing the sport with the exception to rules changes for safety. They make very many more changes to cup racing and they will be losing even more fans including myself.

Can't agree more Bud, Since Winston has been gone, way too many changes have been made to Racing!!
