The Good Sam 500, The Pharaoh Of Phoenix, And Rookies Rising

After his latest coup in Sunday's Good Sam 500, you can just call him the Pharaoh of Phoenix. Out of his 32 victories in NASCAR's top touring series, Kevin Harvick now has eight at Phoenix International Raceway. Much respect to the driver called on to succeed Dale Earnhardt back in 2001 after the Intimidator met his untimely end at the Daytona 500. How about that finish? There's nothing like a couple of arch-rivals going door-to-door for the win. Can you believe the media trying to stir t ...

Coming This Sunday, Martinsville Madness!

  If not for NASCAR, most of us couldn't find Martinsville, Virginia on a map. This quiet little town (population 13,821- 2010 census) once famous for making plug chewing tobacco cranks up the volume for full contact racing this Sunday. If they were racing at night, "Heartache Tonight" by the Eagles would be a perfect theme song. "Somebody's gonna hurt someone, before the night is through.
