Coca Cola 600: Win, Lose or Draw

This sure feels like the day after Christmas. Instead of returning an ugly sweater and wondering what to do with a microwave quesadilla maker, Sprint Cup fans are wondering what to make of another dominant run by Jimmie Johnson in Charlotte. Here's a breakdown:  (more...) ...

Kurt Busch Attempting “The Double” Adds Spice To Racing’s “Day of Feast”

For the first time since the days of A.J. Foyt, I am interested in the Indianapolis 500. Fan to fan, let me tell you, I've always been more of a NASCAR fan since I was a kid. The cars looked more like the ones I could buy, the drivers were more like more like the ones I might meet at the local dirt track- as opposed to Le Mans- and NASCAR had just more of an American feel.

BUSCH-HAMLIN FEUD ENDS — FOR NOW

With ten laps to go in the final segment, Busch got a run through the corner and looked to make a move on the outside of his teammate for the lead.
