Fantasy Insider: Team Revelations For NASCAR’s Short Tracks

Down on your luck in fantasy this season? Never fear. With a weekend off and a chance to relax with family or friends, some time to (hopefully) sneak a look at your team when no one else is looking, Richmond may be a chance to get back into the game, so to speak. If you’ve gotten off to a slow start (like me) and you’ve been a little down, don’t get too down. There are still 28 of these things ... Read More »

Did You Notice? … A Return To Richmond, Post-Spingate And Quick Hits

Did You Notice?… This weekend marks the first Cup race at Richmond since last Fall’s Chase “cheating” controversy? It’s a perfect time for a “Where Are They Now?” addressing all sides of a scandal whose aftershocks still occasionally shake the sport. The Spinner: Clint Bowyer Bowyer, who has never fully admitted to wrecking intentionally, seems to have gotten past the magnitude of the moment. If not for his No. 15 turning around on its own during the final laps at Richmond, we ... Read More »

IndyCar Driver Profile: Takuma Sato

IndyCar Driver Profile: Takuma Sato

When drivers hit the track to race, all eyes are on them, pressure falling straight on their back to do well. However, the weight of those eyes, along with the number makes it far more difficult for some to handle. That could be said for Takuma Sato, IndyCar’s Asian import as many are curious about how the Japanese driver will do with the testy A.J. Foyt as his car owner. While there may be added pressure, though Sato says that ... Read More »

Racing to the Point: NASCAR Has Its Own Heartbreak Kid

Racing to the Point: NASCAR Has Its Own Heartbreak Kid

Ben Stiller is no longer the Heartbreak Kid. The role now belongs to 23-year-old Parker Kligerman. Kligerman didn’t marry a crazy woman after knowing her for six weeks, then fall in love with someone else on his honeymoon, nor did he act in a subpar comedy. His story is full of heartbreak, though, just the same. The latest scene, yet to be completed has Kligerman uncertain of his future — and probably soon without a ride — eight races into ...

Voices From The Cheap Seats: Advertising For Dummies

Since we are on an off week and there is little to no real NASCAR news, other than maybe Brad Keselowski’s almost tearful revelation at how utterly heartbroken and betrayed he felt by Rick Hendrick in 2010, I want to talk about commercials. Yes, they are an evil that we all have to live with and that will never change. Thankfully, with modern technology, if you can exercise self-control but still want to watch the race, you can always hit the pause ... Read More »

Who’s Hot / Who’s Not in Sprint Cup: Off Week-Richmond Edition

Not only has Edwards been ... Read More »

Couch Potato Tuesday: Picking The Best IndyCar On-Air Personalities

Hello, race fans. Welcome back to Couch Potato Tuesday, where we usually have race telecast critiques. However, Easter weekend is a tough weekend if you want to watch races. There was essentially nothing American-based that ran and broadcast their races on television. There was Formula 1 on NBC Sports Network, but I can’t get an entire critique column for the site off of just one race. There was also the European Le Mans Series and the World Endurance Championship from Silverstone. I ... Read More »
