Who’s Hot & Who’s Not In NASCAR: Watkins Glen – Michigan Edition

A win from an underdog is the worst possible outcome for the slew of drivers floating around the playoff wildcard bubble, and that’s exactly what happened at Watkins Glen International Raceway.

The NASCAR Sprint Cup ... Read More »

The return to Pocono Raceway had it all: widespread pitting strategies, tire-care issues, a high-energy finish and even a Big One. It was the ideal ending to a two-week flat track endeavor. NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series now shifts focus to Watkins Glen International Raceway, where road course specialists will be looking to sneak into the playoff picture with only five races remaining before the cutoff. Is it too little, too late for these drivers, or could someone outside the current ... Read More »
