Iowa, Sonoma Make For A Great NASCAR Weekend

Unfortunately, it doesn't happen enough, but I'm excited about this weekend's NASCAR schedule. Why? It has to do with the "where" on the schedule for all three of the national touring series. The Xfinity and truck series is topped this weekend at Iowa Speedway. This track needs to go on to the Monster Energy Cup series pronto. Is there anyone who disputes that there are more short tracks needed? Rusty Wallace helped play a part of the design of the track, patterning it after Richmond. No ...

Will Sonoma Serve As a Slump Buster?

Next stop: the road course at Sonoma. It's wine country, but for some drivers, racing at a road course like Sonoma makes it more like whine country. Road courses can be kryptonite for many. For example, as great as Dale Earnhardt was, only ONE of his 76 victories came at a track of right and left turns. It's weird to see so many top racers with zeroes in their 2017 victory column. Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, and Matt Kenseth are a good place to start for fielding an all-star team. Could So ...

For the hard core, old school race fan, Sunday's victory by Ryan Blaney was a welcome sight. It returned a pioneer NASCAR team to victory lane for the first time since 2011. The 23-year old son of a NASCAR journeyman is well-respected across the spectrum of NASCAR Nation. A product of the nation's heartland, Ryan Blaney resonates well with the core of NASCAR's fan base than most. While Blaney is a racer's son, being the progeny of World of Outlaws champion Dave Blaney really didn't factor ...

Bubba Wallace Is A Big Deal, But……

Bubba Wallace makes his NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series debut this Sunday. It's a big deal, I'll grant you that. Yours truly submits it's not for the reason many in the media think. The Alabaman isn't hopping into just any old ride. In his first Cup race, Bubba Wallace hops into the 43 car, once piloted by "The King," Richard Petty. Though his presence is more as an ambassador, one of NASCAR's most dominant drivers ever still has his fingerprints all over this team. It would be like gett ...
