Atlanta Motor Speedway- Where The Real Racing Begins

OK- so we had a little fun and fireworks at Daytona, now let's get down to business. All things being equal, Atlanta Motor Speedway is where the real racing begins. While intermediates come in slightly varying shapes and sizes, the restrictor plates come off and you find out who has real speed. Let's face it, the Daytona 500 was more of a war of attrition. While some made their beds in had to lie in them, there were a few too many drivers taken out by a mess of someone's creation. I like ...

Can-Am 500 Provides Reversal of Fortunes For Logano, Kenseth

Oh, what a delicious little bit of irony if you're a Joey Logano fan. Late race misfortune for Matt Kenseth (in case you missed it) brings good fortune to Joey Logano. The result? Logano wins the Can-Am 500 at Phoenix and punches his ticket to compete for a championship. Kenseth, who appeared to have the race in the bag, misses out on his chance to contend with JGR teammates Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards for the 2016 Chase crown. What a different scene from 2015. Contact from Logano at Kans ...

That's not a cast of unusual suspects. ...

NASCAR Limits Xfinity Series “Buschwhacking”

After years of fans complaining, the motorsports racing body has placed meaningful limits on how much driving the top-tier racers can participate in the Xfinity and Camping World Truck Series- a practice long known as "Buschwhacking," in a nod to the days when the division was known as the Busch Series. Now, veteran drivers with more than five years of fulltime Cup experience will be limited ...

A Fan’s Take: Coming To Terms With Jimmie Johnson

"Nobody roots for Goliath" Wilt Chamberlain Truer words were never spoken. Back in the 60s, there were those NASCAR fans who pleaded for ANYONE to win a race by Richard Petty. No one dominated an era like "The King." Fast forward 20 years, and a man named Dale Earnhardt had as many foes as fans; not only because he won six of his seven titles in a nine reign of fear, but because of his aggressive style. Then came Jeff Gordon. The anti-Earnhardt won four titles in seven years and set ...
