[caption id="attachment_686487" align="aligncenter" width="520"] Courtesy: https://twitter.com/JeffGordonWeb[/caption] In all of my years writing for this site, I’ve never felt so conflicted after seeing a race. The Goody's Headache Relief Shots 500 at Martinsville Speedway had so much to digest, and we're not talking about the hot dogs.

Who Misses The Cut To The Next Round of the 2015 Chase?

Who will miss the cut to the next round of the 2015 Chase? There's some pretty big names hovering over and under the cut line, leaving little doubt that one or two drivers that had big championship aspirations (is there any such thing as little aspirations?) will see their dreams go up in a vapor.

NASCAR’s Best Road Course Racer Ever

Who is NASCAR's best road course racer ever? Marcos Ambrose? He is one of them, but his body of work is too short. Boris Said? If we're talking about perhaps the best road course driving COACH ever, the curly-headed road master gets the nod. Juan Pablo Montoya? He's worthy of consideration, but the criteria applied to Ambrose also applies to JPM. For all their victories, Richard Petty and David Pearson trail the best road course racer NASCAR has ever seen: Jeff Gordon. With nine victories ...
