Happiness Is… Bristol, the Pole & Another Soap Opera

Happiness Is… Bristol, the Pole & Another Soap Opera

So, let’s rewind for a moment and go back to Michigan. OK, that may not be the best way to put it, as most fans are happy to put Michigan in the rear-view mirror and look toward Bristol, where the hope is that the track might restore some of its past flavor and produce some good ol’-fashioned dust-ups and some angry drivers. But the Sprint Cup Series race at Michigan deserves one quick moment of review. Brad Keselowski bounced off ... Read More »

Voice of Vito: Is Edwards’ Exit Worth The Risk?

Voice of Vito: Is Edwards’ Exit Worth The Risk?

With the announcement that Carl Edwards is headed to Joe Gibbs Racing for the 2015 season to drive their No. 19 Toyotas, its timing may be cause for some reservation. A month ago as rumors ran wild, it looked like a no-brainer; the Roush Fords he had driven for the past decade cars were out to lunch on intermediates, long the bread and butter of Roush Fenway Racing and what Roush Racing had staked its reputation on for nearly 20 ...

Fantasy Insider: The Short and Long of It All at Bristol

Fantasy Insider: The Short and Long of It All at Bristol

I had the pleasure of being in the Charlotte area this week and spent one of those days doing something that I had wanted to do for quite some time. That was take a tour (of sorts) of several NASCAR team buildings and shops. These weren’t scheduled, it was just sort of a random thing with my 11-year-old son mapping out the sites. One of the neat things about the tour was seeing some of the winning cars out on ... Read More »

His rear tire ultimately failed, bringing out the final caution of the race. That restart led to the dramatic moment of the race. In a Nutshell - The majority of the race ... Read More »

The Hendrick Hierarchy Reestablished

The Hendrick Hierarchy Reestablished

Time flies, doesn’t it? Seems like just yesterday, Jeff Gordon was the upstart 24-year-old, turning heads while holding the torch for NASCAR’s next generation. Longtime fans remember that battle, a changing of the guard where Dale Earnhardt, Sr. fought hard but ultimately lost a War with Father Time, inevitably handing the mantle of multiple championships to the man with the pink car labeled “Rainbow Warrior.” Gordon, by age 30, already owned four titles and had reached the top of his ...

Fantasy Insider: Making Michigan Work For You

Fantasy Insider: Making Michigan Work For You

To be perfectly honest this week, who to pick or not pick on my NASCAR fantasy team hasn’t been at the forefront of my mind. In fact, it’s been pretty far back there, following the aftermath of the accident between Tony Stewart and Kevin Ward, Jr. Saturday. It’s expected that the investigation will take another week or two, and while it is difficult to speculate as to the outcome for many reasons, I will just go on my gut feeling ... Read More »

Nothing could stop Marcos Ambrose on Saturday afternoon at Watkins Glen International.

Leading a race-high 48 of the 82 laps, the No. 09 team brought Ambrose his fifth career victory in NASCAR’s second-tier division. The victory also marks the ... Read More »
