The 2015 Season….So Far

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series hits the "Pause" button this weekend as we near the halfway point of the campaign. Let us take opportunity to look at the 2015 season at turn two: THE GOOD Martin Truex Jr.- Personally and professionally, the man has had a roller coaster ride, thus his recent win at Pocono and his consistent run near the front this season is perhaps 2015's "feel good" story thus far.

Tim Richmond: Smarter Than The Tricky Triangle

  Jimmie Johnson's 10th victory at Dover is the latest example of how a driver can master a track. In the same way that Dale Earnhardt owned Talladega, and Darrell Waltrip owned Bristol, Tim Richmond owned Pocono Raceway. In a career cut short by his infection with HIV and death at the hands of the AIDS virus, Tim Richmond reeled off four victories in a four year span at the track known popularly as the "tricky triangle." He swept the twin 1986 stops at Long Pond, Pennsylvania, an ...
