THE SECRET TO NASCAR’S BABY CRAZE

Add Jeff Gordon to the long list of expecting NASCAR fathers this summer. In the last few weeks Jimmie Johnson and Juan Pablo Montoya have been showered with baby gifts thanks to their own new editions. Summer is a popular time for NASCAR babies: Matt Kenseth (July 2009) and Gordon (first child June 2007) with a Sam Hornish baby on the way.  If you turn back the clock nine months, all these drivers were in Homestead, Fla. for the last race of the season. What makes Southern Florida so sexy ...

VICTORY LANE RAIN TASTES MUCH BETTER

David Reutimann won last year’s Coca-Cola 600 – one of the most prestigious races of the year. The longest event of the season, the 600-mile event at the Charlotte Motor Speedway is a test of endurance and fortitude, yet last year it took two days to complete. Mother Nature had the upper hand for most of the weekend, but it was a bold call by crew chief Rodney Childers that kept the No. 00 of David Reutimann out of the track as the rains came. Finally, the rain got the upper hand tha ...

CAVS OWNER ANGRY OPEN LETTER TO NASCAR

I am Dan Gilbert, owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers, and I'm furious about a lot of things.  First and foremost is the cowardly betrayal of our fair city by LeBron James.  But I'm equally angered by the state of NASCAR today.

JEFF GORDON WILL WIN IN CHICAGO

Jeff Gordon will win in Chicago this weekend. So says SI.com's Tom Bowles, who writes, "Averaging a 5.8 average finish in his last four starts in Chicagoland, this team is already knocking on the door with four straight top-5 finishes. With J.J. still winless at this place -- one of the more difficult venues for the No. 48 -- it's time for their shopmates to steal a little bit of the spotlight across the way." Yes, but we all know how Jimmie Johnson races right after he has had a baby. ...

JEFF GORDON MAKING ENEMIES, WHICH IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU SPIN EVERYONE OUT

Jeff Gordon has now spun out/tangled with/pissed off Kurt Busch, Clint Bowyer, Elliott Sadler, David Ragan, and Martin Truex Jr. this season. Truex? Seriously? The guy who makes Jamie McMurray look like Kyle Busch? Either Gordon's skills are slipping, or he is seriously angry because he has not won in more than a year or he just hates everybody all the time. Also, the wrong gas was put in Gordon's car on Friday. By whom? For what purpose? Your guess is as good as ours. Jeff Gordon, your biz ...

COCA COLA 600 ODDS

Hello drawing board. I’ve been missing you. And like that stupid song on the radio, I need you now.After making fun of people who bet on all-star races, I bet on the Sprint Cup All Star-Race, stunningly lost (Jimmie Johnson got hosed, and I’m bitter) and now sit down a fake $350 as I bet every Sprint Cup race this year.This is why I sit back in front of the drawing board. Or more of a spreadsheet.   When the season began, we all made predictions about what we thought would ...
