The Dissolution Of A NASCAR Marriage

NASCAR has played an unlikely matchmaker between fans and corporate America. When a NASCAR fan thinks of Wrangler, they don't just think of pants, they think of Dale Earnhardt tooling around in a yellow and blue race car. When they think of DuPont, they don't just think of adhesives and the like, the brand is also linked to the Rainbow Warrior, Jeff Gordon. The relationship between STP and Richard Petty was such that the sky blue that adorned his car became known as "Petty Blue." Over the ...

Where Does He Go Now?

Cue the music from The Clash, "Should I stay, or should I go?" This is the question before the star of NASCAR's 2014 "Silly Season," Carl Edwards. For a decade, the photogenic, genial Missourian has been the face of Roush Fenway Racing, which for so many seasons has been the flagship team for Ford. Times has changed, leading to speculation Edwards will be changing addresses. Just recently, we learned two things: the 2011 runner-up to Tony Stewart spurned an offer to race for Richard Child ...

Silly Season Talk Is Centering Around The Roush Stable

That awkward moment when your big brother pulls the curtain open and there you stand like a deer in the headlights.

It's not every day you see Michael Waltrip flustered as he backs away from any notion that Biffle may be headed for Michael Waltrip Racing in 2015. The next Waltrip family barbecue may find Darrell with a little mustard, make that a lot of mustard o ...

Denny Hamlin: All He Does Is Win

As legendary as he is, Jeff Gordon can't make this claim. As popular as he is, Dale Earnhardt Jr. can't come close to making this claim. Neither can Kevin Harvick, Kasey Kahne, Kurt Busch, Greg Biffle or Carl Edwards. Denny Hamlin has never gone a full calendar season without winning at least one race. That puts the Virginian in the rarefied air of Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch and even Tony Stewart, who managed to reel off one victory before his unfortunate injury last summer. How many of y ...

Shining A Little Light Clears Up The Case Of Hamlin’s Blurry Vision

Like me, I'm sure you're thinking "Now THAT makes ...

2014 Las Vegas Race Odds

  Las Vegas might be the most under appreciated city on the 2014 Sprint Cup schedule. It gets one race per year, and that race is the third of the 2014 Sprint Cup season. Because it's Vegas and during Spring Break, the race is usually well attended and animated. Vegas also hosts the Sprint Cup banquet which serves as an easy to consume one week PR blitz. Vegas probably deserves a second race, in part because the odds for Sunday's race look so appealing. (more...) ...

EXPERIENCE HAS TAUGHT KYLE BUSCH WELL

 You hear coaches say you learn more from failure than you learn from success. Put another way, it is said in racing that to win a championship, you must first lose one. It wasn’t too many years ago, Kyle Busch was reeling off wins, smashing guitar trophies, talking smack to Dale Jr., and making friends and enemies in equal numbers. Then, adversity showed up; Busch got busted for tangling with the opposition, he got parked by NASCAR and the burning Busch probably came a little c ...
