HARVICK, EDWARDS FEUDING

BRISTOL, Tenn. _ For years, Kevin Harvick was known for his hot temper, aggressive driving and unfiltered mouth. That attitude has been somewhat muted over the last few seasons, but this week the "Happy" Harvick of old showed up in style. Earlier this week, Harvick appeared on the “Bubba The Love Sponge” radio show and was asked about his thoughts on the Carl Edwards-Brad Keselowski incident that took place two weeks ago in Atlanta. Off came the filter and the Harvick of ol ...

FOOD CITY 500 ODDS

As a kid, I loved Mike Singletary. A linebacker for the Chicago Bears, the Hall of Famer had a stare that made men wet themselves. Singletary also hit harder than Carl Edwards when he sees anything that rhymes with Keselowski.Singletary currently coaches the San Francisco 49’ers, where he had one of the greatest coaching rants of all time in his very first game on the job. It is that mantra that will dig me out of my winless hole at the Food City 500 this weekend. Why? Paging Mr. Singletar ...

GET READY FOR MORE ACTION

As if the 2010 season wasn’t exciting enough, NASCAR’s reaction to the Carl Edwards-Brad Keselowski incident last week just triggered a slippery slope. By not suspending or placing a fine on Edwards for his actions in Atlanta, NASCAR has sent the message to the garage that drivers are on their own when it comes to working out problems with each other. With the season’s next race coming at Bristol Motor Speedway this Sunday, perhaps we’ll see more of the "Have at it, ...

NASCAR PROP BETS

Now I know what it’s like to be Paul Menard. Well, pre-2010 Paul Menard.Four race predictions. Four losses. Even though this is only for fun, it’s not fun losing all the time. So with no race this week, I’ve decided to try my hat at making the odds. Here are some NASCAR-related prop bets I would like to see at my favorite Vegas sports book. For those wondering, prop bets aren’t as much about who wins or loses, rather how they win or lose. Odds of Brad Keselowski punchi ...

EDWARDS GETS THREE WEEKS’ PROBATION FOR WRECKING KESELOWSKI

NASCAR is holding true to its word. The boys will have at it in 2010. NASCAR slapped Carl Edwards on the wrist for intentionally wrecking Brad Keselowski during last weekend's race in Atlanta. On Tuesday NASCAR president Mike Helton said that the decision to give Edwards three weeks' probation was based on two separate issues - the wreck itself and the fact that the car went airborne.Did Edwards get off easy? Or was it correct for NASCAR to punish the intent, rather than the outcome? E ...

EDWARDS FLIPS KESELOWSKI AT ATLANTA

Only a real jerk could make Brad Keselowski look like a sympathetic character. Congratulations, Carl Edwards. You have done the impossible. Down 156 laps because of an earlier crash with Keselowski, Edwards turned - and subsequently flipped - Keselowski with three laps to go at the Kobalt Tools 500. It was clearly an act of revenge. Edwards admitted as much, although he said he did not intend to send Keselowski airborne. In a television interview, Keselowski said that Edwards almost killed him a ...

AUTO CLUB 500 ODDS

Wow, did I screw up at Daytona.If anyone doubted this pick column concept was for the sake of fun and merriment, just look at my Daytona debacle from last week.In hindsight, I should have stayed away from any driver associated with Whopper Man,  jumped off Harvick’s lower odds and put my money on Clint Bowyer (same driver/better money maker if he won) and Jamie McMurrary, whom I will now dub Captain Restrictor Plate.What could have been was a $300 payout and $250 in profit. What did h ...

CARL EDWARDS GETS RAW
