Who Has The Most To Prove In The Chase?

  For some just getting into the dance is enough. Resetting the standings may offer an opportunity for outsiders AJ Allmendinger and Aric Almirola a chance to bust loose in the middle of the floor, but for these teams, just getting there is a big deal. Other drivers like Greg Biffle, Kasey Kahne, and Carl Edwards are the NASCAR equivalent of the Houston Rockets: good enough to get in,  just not enough to mount a serious challenge.  Among the field are drivers in their first year with ...

Does The Punishment Fit The Crime For The 11 Team?

  There is plenty to sort through when looking at the penalties handed down to the 11 team after failing post-race inspecting after the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Indianapolis. When navigating crime and punishment as it is met out by NASCAR, there often is. Nobody will say in this post that punishment handed down is insignificant. Two valuable members of Denny Hamlin's team will be out of commission for six weeks. Two men- crew chief Darian Grubb and car chief Wesley Sherrill- can' ...
