Brad Keselowski Changes The Playoff Narrative

[caption id="attachment_688501" align="aligncenter" width="520"] Brad Keselowski wins the SouthPoint 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.[/caption] Remember the "Big Three?" Brad Keselowski has wadded up that story line and thrown it in the trash can. No, we're not forecasting a second championship for "Bad Brad," but his recent success serves to remind us how quickly racing fortunes can change. It's all because of three wins in a row. That's impressive enough. Check it out where he did it. Da ...

The Clock Strikes “12” For Trevor Bayne

It seems like a million years ago now. Trevor Bayne burst into prominence with his unlikely victory in the 2011 Daytona 500. Right at about the time of Tebowmania and Linsanity, the Tennessean became another sports figure vocal about their faith rising to fame. The win also marked a return to relevance for the Wood Bros. race team, a throwback to NASCAR's early days. Then, almost as quickly as he came to fame, Trevor Bayne faded away. Since then, he made headlines for being diagnosed with ...

Penske Checks Another Box With Brickyard 400 Victory

"That was his first. Really?" I was honestly shocked to learn that Brad Keselowski's victory Monday in the Brickyard 400 was a first for "The Captain," team owner Roger Penske in Cup racing at Indianapolis.

Between USAC, Indy Car and the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series, Roger Penske has 14 ch ...

Furniture Row Racing is closing up shop. It's not the feel good, Hollywood ending fitting of an underdog. Racing reality has set in. Owner Barney Visser says he would have to go all in monetarily to make it work, and that didn't make sense to him. Kudos to Visser for not hanging on too long. That paves the way for an outcome that's far worse. In a sense, Furniture Row is going out on top- or it has the capability of doing so. It's quite an accomplishment for the only fulltime team based w ...

Brad Keselowski Punches His Ticket In The Pits

Sweet relief for Brad Keselowski. The 2012 champion gets that elusive first victory of 2018 in the Southern 500. The win effectively gets him into the playoffs. It's been an interesting year for Brad Keselowski and the Penske gang. Thanks in no small part to Stewart-Haas Racing, Ford is having a strong year. While their performance has been no shock, what is mildly surprising is that Keselowski, Joey Logano and Ryan Blaney don't have more wins to show for their efforts. That's not saying ...
