It looks like Roger Penske’s swap of drivers and crew chiefs paid off with a strategy call as Joey Logano won the NASCAR Cup race on old tires last Sunday in Las Vegas. There was, however, a little intra-team friction, as Ryan Blaney was less than happy about the way teammate Logano raced him in the late going. Matt DiBenedetto finished second in his new Wood Brothers ride, and from his demeanor in post-race interviews you’d think he had won the race. Matt is going to score a win or two this season.

The security of knowing you won’t have to move at the whim of a landlord is invaluable, but there are also the huge tax benefits and investment benefits in addition to the security of ownership.
