Furniture Row Racing Turns Tables On JGR

You know, it's not supposed to be like this. Furniture Row Racing is supposed to be the "kid brother" to Joe Gibbs Racing. One team has two former champions, a perennial contender and a promising rookie. The other has a grizzled journeyman who once went six YEARS between his first and second career victory and a rookie. One team enjoys the spoils of residing in NASCAR's heartland. The other toils on the outer reaches of the NASCAR frontier in Denver, Colorado- far, far away from the Charlott ...

Kyle Busch Hates Losing? Who Doesn’t?

Love/hate is too strong to use for this fan for Kyle Busch. On the whole, he is good for the sport. Kyle Busch is immensely talented- as indicated by his results. Busch is a colorful character with a playful repartee with the fans. And as his wife Samantha shared in defense of her husband, there is a generous and kind side to the 2015 champion away from the track. With that being said, the performance of Kyle Busch in the post-race press room was headshake inducing. You can be disappointe ...

NASCAR Needs More Of That Martinsville

Did you see Sunday's race at Martinsville? In the opinion of this fan, it was easily the best of the year. There were races for position throughout the field, races for the lead, and a dramatic game of cat and mouse between Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch. There's no getting around what can't be changed in terms of reviving NASCAR. Regardless of what the powers that be do, attitudes toward the automobile and racing it have changed. The cars- both the street machine and the racing car- are ...
