Kevin Harvick Makes History, Makes Statement

Mission accomplished. After all hoo ha about his win at Las Vegas, Kevin Harvick determined he would race with a purpose at Phoenix. While he didn't have a dominant car, Happy did what he does best: get close and take over at the end. In doing so, Kevin Harvick scored his 40th career victory in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. That ties the 42-year old from the Bakersfield area with Mark Martin. For those of you keep track, among the hundreds who've donned firesuits in the NASCAR Cup ...

My Picks For the 2019 NASCAR Hall of Fame

Decisions, decisions, decisions. Have you seen the just-released list of nominees for the 2019 class of the NASCAR Hall of Fame? Not everyone who is worthy on the list will get in next year. If it were left up to me, these would be my selections: Jeff Gordon- The four-time champion and winner of 93 Cup races is without question a first ballot Hall of Famer if there ever was one.

Anyone really surprised that NASCAR came down on Team Harvick with a passel of penalties over the "failed" window brace last Sunday at Las Vegas? I doubt it. You know what I also doubt?

Sunday- right in front of God and everybody- Kevin Harvick had a pretty noticeable indentation on his rear window during the race at Las Vegas. It has everybody talking today. Kevin Harvick has more than his share of defenders. I have to admit- if I were a crew chief, I'd be thinking, "Damn. Why didn't I think of that?" Of course, the four team has that sheepish Jim Halper ...

Denny Hamlin May Be Getting More Attention, But Enjoying It Less

Someone once said, any publicity is good publicity. Speaking as someone with a marketing background, don't believe it. Denny Hamlin has been getting a lot more face time lately, but I think it's safe to say he's enjoying it less. I don't think I'd enjoy being a PR agent for Denny Hamlin or Joe Gibbs, that's for sure. Not only has he quipped that "70 percent" of NASCAR drivers are on Adderall- a big NASCAR no-no, he's also gained notoriety thanks to a budding feud with Bubba Wallace. Wh ...
