Michael Annett, DJ Kennington to honor victims of Humboldt Broncos bus crash

Leave a comment

This weekend DJ Kennington and Michael Annett will pay tribute to the 16 players and staff of the Humboldt Broncos hockey team who have lost their lives as a result of an April 6 bus crash.

The bus was carrying 29 members of the junior-A Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League team which is based in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Kennington is a native of St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada, and both drivers have played hockey.

Kennington, who drives for Gaunt Brothers Racing, will have the team’s logo on the hood of his No. 96 Toyota this weekend in the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway. Annett, who drives for JR Motorsports in the Xfinity Series, will have the logo above the B pillar on his No. 5 Chevrolet.

The logos are the latest in a series of tributes in memory of the victims and the first in NASCAR.

“I remember riding buses when I played hockey,” Annett said in a press release. “It was part of the game, traveling together to away games. In NASCAR, we use planes and motorhomes, but none of us as players had the ability to do that. You went as a team.

“This is a terrible tragedy, and my heart goes out to the families and fans of the Humboldt Broncos.”

Brad Keselowski to drive Rusty Wallace’s 1990 scheme in Southern 500

Rusty Wallace is synonymous with driving the No. 2 for Roger Penske during his NASCAR Hall of Fame career.

But there was a time when Wallace was winning Cup races with a different numeral and a different team.

Brad Keselowski will pay tribute to that era of Wallace’s career in this year’s Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. After sporting Wallace’s famous “Midnight” scheme in the race last season, Keselowski will drive the scheme that preceded it.

The No. 2 Ford will resemble the No. 27 Miller Genuine Draft Pontiac that Wallace drove in 1990 for owner Raymond Beadle.

That year, Wallace won two races including the Coca-Cola 600. He finished the season sixth in the standings.

See the scheme below.
