The World Baseball Classic is currently underway (with games in Taichung, Taiwan, Fukuoka, Japan, San Juan, and Phoenix), and with Spring Training in swing the sport isn't lacking in action. However, the fastest moment for the game wasn't on the diamond this week. No, no. The fastest moment was on the track in Phoenix.

Sponsored by the World Baseball Classic Inc., driver Abraham Calderon's "05" car took the checked flag at Phoenix International Raceway to claim the first NASCAR Mexcio Toytoa Series held in the United States.

Pretty unique sports cross-promotion. Doy you think it worked?
