Talledega Superspeedway: Last Best Chance For A Junior Win

Talladega Superspeedway- NASCAR's home for wild, crazy racing. From it's inception, the Alabama track has been a source of edge of your seat racing, crazy wrecks, feel good stories and controversy. Talladega Superspeedway was once Dale Earnhardt Jr's personal playground. Back in the early 2000s, NASCAR's favorite son won four races in a row between 2001 and 2003.

NASCAR Consistent In Their Inconsistency

They've shot themselves in the foot so many times, it's a wonder that NASCAR hasn't needed an amputation. Once again, the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing has created the perception of favoring some drivers over others with the no-call on Jimmie Johnson's pit stop at Charlotte.

It’s Crunch Time For Drivers On The Bubble At Dover

It's crunch time! After Sunday's race at Dover, the field will be sliced down to 12 from 16. Thanks to either wins or points, Kyle Busch, Martin Truex Jr., Brad Keselowski and Kyle Larson are playing with house money. Beyond that, things get a little more interesting. One would think Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth and Denny Hamlin should go on through. While a complete disaster could take any one or all of this trio down, I think there would be a greater chance of a July blizzard in Hawaii ...
