Did You Notice? … One Saving Grace That Lies Ahead

Did You Notice? … One Saving Grace That Lies Ahead

Did You Notice? … How much of a crapshoot Talladega makes the next round of this Chase? No one has an advantage on paper entering this three-race sprint as all 12 drivers are tied for the point lead. That means it’s nearly impossible to create a 47-point cushion, locking yourself into the next round before the closest thing NASCAR has to Russian Roulette. No one, not even the red hot Kevin Harvick, was able to create such a cushion in ... Read More »

Dover’s track used to be one of the trickiest on tour, a matter of survival as the outside wall could come up and bite at any time. Finally, this spring we started to see a turnaround, with the ...

Happiness Is… Relationships, Singapore, and Kentucky

Happiness Is… Relationships, Singapore, and Kentucky

Was that an actual race at Chicagoland?  A track not known for well, anything, seemed to produce a finish that was worth remembering.  Brad Keselowski’s ballsy move, splitting Kevin Harvick and Kyle Larson as they raced for the lead, seemed to be just the type of thing that wasn’t supposed to be possible with the Gen-6 aero-dependent cars. Now, it should be mentioned that a caution flag set up that fun-to-watch finish, otherwise we might be looking at another one ... Read More »

Fantasy Insider: Look For A Slice Of NASCAR History Repeating

We could see some familiar faces back up front at New Hampshire. The end of last Sunday’s race at Chicagoland saw Brad Keselowski and Kyle Larson running up front for much of the event, with Keselowski winning and guaranteeing himself one of 12 spots in the next round of the Chase. Rookie Larson, through hard racing with Kevin Harvick, then Jeff Gordon kept trying for his first Sprint Cup win before ultimately coming up short. And while there are no ... Read More »

Going By the Numbers: Why Stewart Still Sits In Perfect Chase Position

Going By the Numbers: Why Stewart Still Sits In Perfect Chase Position

When it’s all said and done, Ryan Newman will be part of the 2014 Chase for the Sprint Cup. But you already figured – perhaps knew – that, didn’t you? After all, all Newman has a 19-point lead on Greg Biffle entering Richmond, the final race before the Chase begins. Even if, Biffle made up those points, the Richard Childress Racing driver would still have a cushion on Clint Bowyer, who is currently 42 points behind. His only troubling scenario is if ...
