Fantasy Insider: Road Course Ringer Equals Marcos or ‘Dinger

Fantasy Insider: Road Course Ringer Equals Marcos or ‘Dinger

When it came to making fantasy auto racing picks for road courses, for years it seemed like a safe bet to look at the so-called road ringers and try to pick up a top 10 finish with a cheap or rarely used driver. But taking a look back at the last three road course races, the numbers are starting tell us a couple of things. First, the regulars on the Sprint Cup circuit have improved quite a bit at making ...

Boris Said to run Watkins Glen Sprint Cup Race for Go FAS Racing

Go FAS Racing announced on Monday that Boris Said will drive the No. 32 Ford Fusion in the Sprint Cup Series race at Watkins Glen on Sunday, August 10th with sponsorship from Genny Light. “Genny Light is a fan favorite in upstate New York.

Racing to the Point: One NASCAR Pastime Nearing Extinction

Racing to the Point: One NASCAR Pastime Nearing Extinction

I say we cage Boris Said up, put him in a safe environment with plenty of hair care products and don’t let him out until Watkins Glen rolls around. You see, Said is an endangered animal, much like the black rhino and Hawksbill turtle, so we need to start dedicating our resources to preserving him. If we don’t, the road course ringer will be extinct nearly a decade after its prime. I doubt they’ll hang pictures of Scott Pruett and ... Read More »

Going By The Numbers: NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Disappearance On The Road

Going By The Numbers: NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Disappearance On The Road

When I first started watching NASCAR, the road course races were among the best of the year. Not only were the tracks — Sonoma and Watkins Glen — the only instances all year in the Sprint Cup Series where one could watch drivers actually take a right turn every lap. They were also chock full of interesting new talent, drivers who weren’t going to be found anywhere else on the schedule. Whether they were sports car racers, aces known for ... Read More »

Fantasy Insider: Road to Rebound Runs Through Sonoma

Fantasy Insider: Road to Rebound Runs Through Sonoma

It’s a totally different ballgame this week when the NASCAR Sprint Cup series visits Sonoma for the first of two road-course races on the roster. Yes, we’ve got right turns, and left turns, and more right turns and just knowing who to pick this week could very well turn your season around if you have been in a bit of a slump lately, or if your season has gone bad and you’re just looking for something positive. The 1.99-mile track ... Read More »

Did You Notice? … The Death Of A Ringer And How Old Dogs Learn New Tricks

Did You Notice? … The Death Of A Ringer And How Old Dogs Learn New Tricks

Did You Notice?… The road course ringer era is over? Just two right-turn “subs” are on the list for Sonoma: Boris Said for GO FAS Racing and Alex Kennedy for Circle Sport. Said, driving the No. 32, has been in that position for years while Kennedy is a bit of a stretch, considered somewhat of a road course specialist but running a limited schedule on ovals for the team he’s with. It appears that after years of spending money on “experts,” ... Read More »
