BK Racing’s charter guarantees it a minimum of $2.9 million for competing in all the races, according to an affidavit filed by a Union Bank & Trust executive as part of recent litigation. The affidavit states BK Racing would earn more than $200,000 for the Daytona 500 and an average minimum of $75,000 for 36 other events throughout the year. It is not clear if that assumes a particular race finish or a last-place finish in every event. NASCAR no longer releases driver earnings following each race, but a $2.9 million base would be fairly consistent with a team 35th in points (drivers who finished between 33rd and 36th in 2015 earned $2.9-$3.2 million). NASCAR would not comment on the accuracy of the bank’s estimates.

A Georgia man has dropped a $500 million racial discrimination lawsuit that claimed NASCAR rebuffed his efforts to launch programs and a race team to help with NASCAR's diversity efforts. According to Terrance Cox’s notice of voluntary dismissal, he dropped the lawsuit in exchange for NASCAR’s agreement not to seek fees, expenses or sanctions against him. NASCAR statement: “From the very outset, Terrence Cox’s allegations were baseless publicity stunts without any merit or factual backing. We are not surprised that Mr. Cox has chosen to drop this matter and we remain committed to providing a working environment that promotes diversity, equality and respect for one another in everything we do.” Cox and his attorney both declined comment.

No pain, no gain? Austin Dillon and some members of his team got tattoos last night in celebration of the Daytona 500 win.
