NASCAR Needs More Of That Martinsville

Did you see Sunday's race at Martinsville? In the opinion of this fan, it was easily the best of the year. There were races for position throughout the field, races for the lead, and a dramatic game of cat and mouse between Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch. There's no getting around what can't be changed in terms of reviving NASCAR. Regardless of what the powers that be do, attitudes toward the automobile and racing it have changed. The cars- both the street machine and the racing car- are ...

Back To Racing: The Advanced Auto Parts Clash

It's good to have racing again. The rain-delayed Advanced Auto Parts Clash was a great teaser for the season to come. With all the changes, it's good to know some things are still the same.

He's a winner. The second-generation NASCAR driver has 20 wins and championship. I'm not much of a mathematician but I believe that's one more championship than the beloved Dale Earnhardt Jr. owns, and more than what Carl ...

Brad Keselowski: Right And Wrong

Poor Kurt Busch. He wins a race at Pocono, and we're all taking about Brad Keselowski and his comments concerning a violation on pit road. Thankfully for Busch fans, I think he will be known for more than being Kyle's big brother as the season continues to unfold, but today, let's talk about what Brad had to say. In typical Keselowski form, he raised a good point, all while whining about his hands getting caught in the cookie jar. To the penalty, Brad Keselowski, you got caught, pure and ...
