Busch vs. Harvick: What’s The Big Deal?

So Kevin Harvick employs the bump and run to loosen up Kyle Busch for the win at New Hampshire. Have you looked carefully at the video? That bump and run was more like a touch and excuse me. OK, maybe the contact was a little heavy. Harvick got into Busch pretty good on that last move. It could have been worse. The idea here was overtaking the lead, not putting Kyle in the wall. It's a fine line, but there's a difference. Busch didn't seem to broke up about it. Fans getting their knick ...

The Elliott- Earnhardt Connection

Who would have ever imagined back in 1987 when Dale Earnhardt and Bill Elliott were battling in an all-star race that their sons  would one day be teammates.

Earnhardt-Johnson Bond Stronger Than You Think

Some things aren't what they seem . Remember how it was with Dale Earnhardt Sr. and Jeff Gordon. To Earnhardt fans, Gordon was a girly man; a mere boy; a driver more fit for the "hoity toidy" world of open wheel than the rough and tumble world of NASCAR. no doubt, The Intimidator's jokes that called the "Wonder Boy's" manhood into question only further fueled it. It gave off a perception that the hero of the blue collar set despised fresh faced youth with California roots. The truth is, E ...
