Pace Laps: Chase Mess, Justin Boston’s Nationwide Debut, Cole Custer Makes History & More

Sprint Cup Series: A Hodge-Podge for Chase Drivers - Let’s ignore the fact there were 15 cautions at Loudon, and that most of them happened in the second half of the race, leading to an event that felt like a stop-and-go commute downtown in a major city during rush hour.  The result of all the cautions brought about a mix of strategies and helped even drivers with injured cars find a way to get to the front. When Kyle Busch got ... Read More »

Pace Laps: Congenial Richmond, KyBu Nationwide, other stuff

Cup:  The Race That Wasn’t – No one did anything surprising in the race at Richmond.  Well, that’s not correct.  The idiot who climbed the catchfence in turn 4 surely did something surprising.  While many people have done idiotic things at a race track, it’s doubtful that anyone anticipated a fan climbing the fence bordering the track and using it as a perch.  Aside from the unbelievable asininity, if you look at the photos, the idiot was so bored he ...

Pace Laps: Jimmie Johnson Success, First Time Nationwide Winners and Powers’ Power

Pace Laps: Jimmie Johnson Success, First Time Nationwide Winners and Powers’ Power

Sprint Cup: A normal race at Michigan for Jimmie Johnson usually means that he runs out of fuel in the final laps after leading for most of the day and having the best car.  Johnson, however, did the other Jimmie Johnson thing at Michigan.  That usually means falling way back in the field and then seemingly arriving like a magician in the top ten as the race comes to its conclusion. Sure enough, Johnson started in the back, then had Chad Knaus put ... Read More »

Voices From The Cheap Seats: Reason Must Prevail Over Emotion

Voices From The Cheap Seats: Reason Must Prevail Over Emotion

The recent events at Canandaigua Motorsports Park involving Tony Stewart and the death of Kevin Ward, Jr. are nothing short of tragic. What is even more tragic is that it all could have been avoided. Now, while what I have to say may seem callous to some, it needs to be said among all the media hype about this incident that we are going to have to endure for the coming months. Hey, America, y’all are so enamored with so-called reality ... Read More »
