The Comeback Kids

For this fan, Brad Keselowski and Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be forever linked. After all, it was Earnhardt who gave Keselowski his big break in the Nationwide Series. He had his rough edges, but that ride led a short-term Cup opportunity at Hendrick Motorsports, a win at Talladega for James Finch, and then that championship ride for Roger Penske. Both have racing in their blood as sons of racers, both are a little rough around the edges; occasionally saying things that make suits squirm. Both ...

Boiled Over Brad’s Selective Outrage

NASCAR fans got a bonus with the race at Richmond; it was a two for one special. Not only was there one of the best races we've seen in a long time, fans also got treated to a little "Saturday Night At The Fights." The headliner featured a mean right hook by Marcos Ambrose after a shove from Casey Mears; the undercard, a more familiar NASCAR refrain of love taps, finger pointing and bent sheet metal- this time between former champions Brad Keselowski and Matt Kenseth. While the scrap bet ...

Perhaps thrust into the spotlight too soon, Logano has been like that little kid who strapped on boots just a little too big and stumbled all over them. The greatest thing since sliced bread? The way things started, the Connecticut Kid appeared to be only half baked. Logano found himself with the high heat turned on, with ...

Why The New Chase Qualifying System Works

We're only three races into the new NASCAR Sprint Cup season, so there's still a lot yet to be determined. It's still too early to establish which are bone fide trends and mirages. For example, Junior Nation is hoping hoping his current is a trend, while Smoke fans are praying Tony Stewart's present woes are a quickly fading mirage.
