2011 SHELBY MUSTANG GT350 PACE CAR

I'm sure that any self-respecting guy watching last week's Shelby American at Las Vegas Motor Speedway noticed the aggressive-looking Mustang pacing the field and found it almost as interesting as Kim Kardashian's skin-tight jumper. Well, that wasn't just any old Mustang, but a 2011 Ford Shelby GT350, a supercharged 5.0 liter beast capable of churning out 500-plus horsepower. Personally, I find that much more arousing than Kim Kardashian's cleavage.It seems that one of the new Miss Sprint Cups d ...

KOBALT TOOLS 500 ODDS

Three races. Three losses. Bad math for me.The only time I bet on Jimmie Johnson, he lost. The two times I didn’t bet on Jimmie Johnson, he won. As a result, I'm down $150 and am glad I don't live anywhere near a place of gaming.At this point, you might think I’m ready to abandon this concept of losing fake money on race picks for the sake of entertaining you while you should be working on that Excel sheet minimized on your screen (spooky, eh?)  But like Russell Crowe in “ ...

Discussions in local pit areas and grandstands centered on big-time NASCAR team owners who would be wise to take a look at so-and-so. But good timing and opportunity are everything for the guys who have made it to the major leagues. And lack of good timing has held back a few thousand racers for every Joey Logano who got the chance to sh ...

JUANTABO MOJOYA IS GONNA BE PISSED

ESPN's David Newton is a very good writer. But it looks like he's still working out the kinks on TV. Newton mangles Juan Pablo Montoya's name not once, but twice, on NASCAR Now. Poor Juantabo Mojoya, first Bob Griese accuses him of eating tacos, then Vince Welch asks him a dumb question, then a reporter expected him to work past 5:01, and now this. ...
