NASCAR Isn’t Crashing and Burning

 There are NASCAR fans who will tell you – with a straight face, at that – that they watch racing for the racing. Yeah, well, most politicians swear – swear! – they won’t raise taxes, either. How’s that working out for you? Anyway, to some race fans, the idea that people might watch a race because, you know, they kinda sorta maybe hope they’ll see an historic, awesome wreck a la Michael McDowell at Texas or just a garden-variety, Robby Gordon-c ...

Should NASCAR Pull A Model T and Disappear?

It used to be, The Chicago Tribune had a sports columnist by the name of Bernie Lincicome.

This Year’s Model

Revell is most likely a fairly insignificant NASCAR sponsor – at least, the company didn’t merit inclusion as a member of the “Family of Sponsors” in the 2008 media guide.
