It's the 20th anniversary of what is supposed to be Nascar's second biggest race. Teams and fans can argue all day on the merits of the Brickyard 400. There's little debate that the odds for this year's race are some of the strangest this 2014 Sprint Cup season. (more...) ...

A “Mud”-Summer Night’s Dream

Here's a memo to Eldora track owner Tony Stewart and NASCAR: "Thank you, Sir. May I have another?" Races like the Mudsummer Classic Wednesday in Rossburg, Ohio would do a tremendous amount to remedy what's wrong with NASCAR- in this humble opinion. Props to Darrell Wallace Jr. In terms of a fresh face that can turn heads toward the sport that don't ordinarily pay attention, Bubba is the man. Sure, being a rare racer of mixed ethnicity, Wallace gets your attention, but for the seasoned fan ...

The NASCAR Bubble

Bubbles are trouble when you're not talking about a kid's bath. We've had the "dot-com" bubble, the real estate bubble, and now it sure looks from here that the NASCAR bubble is working its way out as all manner of issues in "stock" car auto racing are on the table for discussion. Does this mean NASCAR is dead? Never say never, as yours truly stares down the barrel of 50 years of age in a few weeks, I can tell you I have seen everything from the moon landing to Roe V. Wade to the Internet ...

The Comeback Kids

For this fan, Brad Keselowski and Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be forever linked. After all, it was Earnhardt who gave Keselowski his big break in the Nationwide Series. He had his rough edges, but that ride led a short-term Cup opportunity at Hendrick Motorsports, a win at Talladega for James Finch, and then that championship ride for Roger Penske. Both have racing in their blood as sons of racers, both are a little rough around the edges; occasionally saying things that make suits squirm. Both ...

Let Him Race: In Defense Of Morgan Shepherd

A 72-year old in auto racing? Are you serious? No, you don't need your eyes checked; Morgan Shepherd not only drove a race car in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in New Hampshire, he also found himself in some unwanted headlines as a result of his wreck that took out a contender, Joey Logano. The idea of someone driving a race car along with 42 others who was born during the FDR administration seems preposterous...unless you think it through a little further. This driver, who debuted in ...

Nascar Odds: Camping World RV Sales 301

There's a new streak in Nascar, though very few seems to care about it very much. After Aric Almirola's 60/1 win last week at Daytona, Ford has three straight wins on the the Sprint Cup tour. Surprisingly enough, that's the longest streak since 2005. However, odds are the streak ends this week at Loudon. Here's why: (more...) ...

Coming Soon: A NASCAR Power Play

"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men." -Lord Acton Like two Old West gunslingers, NASCAR and NASCAR team owners are poised with guns loaded ten paces apart down on Main Street. Both parties are talking as if there is nothing to see here, but no one is buying it. The question now is not a matter of "if," but a matter of "when." Th ...
