Nascar Odds: Offseason Prop Bets

It is the strangest weekend of the entire racing year. After 36 races and more than 40 weeks of thinking about a Sprint Cup season, there is no race, no next step, not moves to ponder. So now what? While Kevin Harvick parties like a rock star, the rest of the racing world looks ahead to 2015. Here are some Nascar prop bets to get you through the weekend. (more...) ...

Long Term, It May Be Bowyer Who Loses The Most

The tribal council has spoken. Fines are levied, a suspension is handed down, and points are deducted- “Spingate” has collected more than it’s share of damage, from the willing participants to the victims of circumstance.

THE GREATEST OF THE GREAT AMERICAN RACE

Some call it NASCAR’s “Super Bowl.” Much like football’s greatest game, the “Great American Race” has had some of its greatest moments in its greatest event. Several races merit honorable mention. Among them, a win by Indy legend A.J. Foyt in 1972, Dale Jarrett’s 1993 victory with dad Ned announcing it, and Fireball Roberts’ victory in 1962. 2001’s Daytona 500 race, won by Michael Waltrip was historic, but the tragic death of Waltrip&rsq ...
