The Comeback Kids

For this fan, Brad Keselowski and Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be forever linked. After all, it was Earnhardt who gave Keselowski his big break in the Nationwide Series. He had his rough edges, but that ride led a short-term Cup opportunity at Hendrick Motorsports, a win at Talladega for James Finch, and then that championship ride for Roger Penske. Both have racing in their blood as sons of racers, both are a little rough around the edges; occasionally saying things that make suits squirm. Both ...

Let Him Race: In Defense Of Morgan Shepherd

A 72-year old in auto racing? Are you serious? No, you don't need your eyes checked; Morgan Shepherd not only drove a race car in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in New Hampshire, he also found himself in some unwanted headlines as a result of his wreck that took out a contender, Joey Logano. The idea of someone driving a race car along with 42 others who was born during the FDR administration seems preposterous...unless you think it through a little further. This driver, who debuted in ...

The Best Is Yet To Come

NASCAR's most popular driver won the season opener. A veteran driver with championship potential has overcome some potholes in his path to secure a pair of wins, almost ensuring his spot in the Chase. A former champion finds redemption with his new team by ending a long victory drought. Among a bumper crop of fresh faces are two phenoms who have captured the imagination of the racing public: one is a California kid with a sparkling background as an open wheeler, and the other, the son of a b ...

Kid Joey’s Sitting At The Adult Table Now

Sometimes charming, sometimes annoyingly overeager, Joey Logano has been the quintessential NASCAR younger brother since his arrival on the Cup scene at the end of 2008. Perhaps thrust into the spotlight too soon, Logano has been like that little kid who strapped on boots just a little too big and stumbled all over them. The greatest thing since sliced bread? The way things started, the Connecticut Kid appeared to be only half baked. Logano found himself with the high heat turned on, with ...

Rivalries Vs. Feuds

The one year anniversary of the infamous Denny Hamlin- Joey Logano crash in Fontana raises questions of feuds and rivalries. In the mind of this observer, there's a difference. One is good for NASCAR. The other is a public relations black eye. Great rivalries are the stuff of NASCAR legend. The King (Richard Petty) vs. The Silver Fox (David Pearson) may have been the greatest in motorsports. Bobby Allison versus Darrell Waltrip was a great rivalry. For a time, Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart ...
