Truckin’ Thursdays: Drivers Worth Watching This Season

Truckin’ Thursdays: Drivers Worth Watching This Season

Sometimes, it’s a struggle to come up with something to talk about in a series that takes five weeks off after its first event. With just one race under their belts, it’s hardly time to start talking about championship favorites, though you’d have to look at Matt Crafton’s near-invincibility last season and wonder who might have that good fortune this season. But instead of looking at championship favorites, how about a look at a few drivers worth keeping an eye ... Read More »

Did You Notice?… Kurt Busch could be the fourth person in history to do theNASCAR/Indy “double,” running 1,100 miles in the same day? OK, you probably do because Busch was everywhere with a camera, a microphone, and a satellite signal Tuesday. Between the national rounds, from ESPN to NBC along with aKurtBuschDouble.com website rollout it’s clear this Memorial Day Weekend decision has been brewing for months.

NASCAR Mailbox: New Chase System – So Far, So Good

Kurt Busch is either really brave or really stupid, if not some sort of hybrid between the two.

Every IndyCar driver wants to win it, and every driver who has won it wants to do it again. Race car drivers from all over the world dream of just being in the ... Read More »
