Does The Punishment Fit The Crime For The 11 Team?

  There is plenty to sort through when looking at the penalties handed down to the 11 team after failing post-race inspecting after the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Indianapolis.

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.

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 ...
