WHO IS TO BLAME FOR NASCAR’S DECLINE?

CONCORD, N.C. _ These days it seems everyone in NASCAR is trying to figure out the reasoning for a decline in attendance and major drop television ratings.

Most agree the economy has played a major role, some blame the Chase for the Sprint Cup, many argue it is ESPN and others point to the dominance of Jimmie Johnson.  In the last week alone, television ratings dropped 30% ...

Thanks to his victory at Kansas, “The Biff” gets more than just a morale boost.Sunday’s victory also did a nice ...

Yet when it mattered most, 'Smoke' got the job done and scored the victory – his first of the 2010 season. "I just couldn't keep from spinning the tires and I just made myself not even watch Carl (Edwards) on the bottom on th ...

EDWARDS FLIES OFF HANDLE AT TEMPER TALK

Hey racing fans, Carl Edwards here for another addition of Carl's Corner.  This weekend marks the first time back at Atlanta since I flipped Brad Keselowski end over end in the spring race.  Since that altercation, many slanderous things have been written about me and my "rage issues." Kevin Harvick even called me a "fake".  Nothing makes me angrier than hearing lies spread about me, espcially lies that aren't true.  I promise I won't get too upset.  ...
