JOHNSON AND GORDON WOULD BE TIED IF NASCAR USED F1 SCORING SYSTEM

I am following up on an Oct. 1 post that showed what the standings would look like if NASCAR used Formula 1’s point system.

This is much closer than the current Sprint Cup standin ...

New Formula 1 Team Interested in Kyle Busch?

Of all the hare-brained, asinine, downright idiotic things I've read in my life, I think this one takes the cake. According to a report at MotorAuthority.com, AJ Allmendinger, Kyle Busch, and Scott Speed (and Danica Patrick, but I digress) are among those being considered to drive for a new, US-based Formula 1 team.Let's ignore for a moment just how sketchy the whole item is -- of course, saying that a "motor sport writer for the Toronto Star claims Kyle Busch - also a ...
