Thinkin’ Out Loud – Dover – Chase Race No. 3 – The field is trimmed to 12

Thinkin’ Out Loud – Dover – Chase Race No. 3 – The field is trimmed to 12

Key Moment – The pass for the lead by Jeff Gordon over Brad Keselowski with 95 laps to go was the difference in the race. Keselowski was in the top 3 all day long and looked to be the driver to beat once Kevin Harvick’s car had issues with an inner liner going flat. Gordon ran down Keselowski and passed him on lap 305 and never looked back. In a Nutshell - The drama of the first ‘Richmond moment’ of the ... Read More »

NASCAR’s Biggest Nightmare: Predictable

NASCAR’s Biggest Nightmare: Predictable

It was supposed to be a history-making moment. NASCAR’s first ever “Chase elimination” race, the lynchpin of its new format was supposed to make Dover a “Game 7” atmosphere, knocking potential title contenders out of the prizefight early. After Loudon, where top drivers got knocked around like pinballs, the bar was set for aggression, strategy, even panic as so many hovered around the “cutline,” whittling an expanded postseason field from 16 to a far more manageable 12. Dover’s Monster Mile, ... Read More »

Quotes to Remember: AAA 400

Quotes to Remember: AAA 400

“I don’t know what happened to Kevin Harvick. It was unfortunate for him. He was the class of the field. We were tuning on it to try to keep even with him. When I saw him go out, I knew we could compete with the No.2 (Brad Keselowski) car. The No. 2 was really good on short runs, but we could run him down. Of course he made us work for it there at the end because he was so ... Read More »

Fantasy Insider: Defining Dover Dominance For Your Roster

Fantasy Insider: Defining Dover Dominance For Your Roster

The good news for NASCAR Sprint Cup competitors is that defending and six-time champion Jimmie Johnson hasn’t done much lately. The bad news for those same competitors is that Johnson still sits fourth in points and the even more bad news for them is that the race this week is at Dover. It’s a track where Johnson has been dominant over his career and it’s one of those places where if he doesn’t at least contend for the win, then ... Read More »

Team Penske and Roush Fenway Racing Test at Texas Motor Speedway

Team Penske and Roush Fenway Racing Test at Texas Motor Speedway

With Texas Motor Speedway being near the bottom of the Sprint Cup Series schedule, there’s no doubt it’ll be a pivotal race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. That’s why on Monday and Tuesday, Team Penske drivers Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski, along with Roush Fenway Racing drivers Carl Edwards, Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. and Greg Biffle were testing in preparation for the AAA Texas 500 on Sunday, Nov. 2. Logano and Keselowski have automatically moved themselves to round two ... Read More »

Who’s Hot and Who’s Not: New Hampshire – Dover Edition

Who’s Hot and Who’s Not: New Hampshire – Dover Edition

There’s only one race left in the opening Challenger Round of the NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup, but plenty of uncertainty after the Sylvania 300. Nine championship hopefuls are separated by only 12 points heading into the first elimination and four won’t advance, making this edition of Who’s Hot and Who’s Not a sizzler. Through two races, the revised Chase is playing out just as NASCAR CEO Brian France and other higher-ups envisioned it would. The AAA 400 at ... Read More »

Who’s Hot and Who’s Not in NASCAR: Chicago – New Hampshire Edition

Who’s Hot and Who’s Not in NASCAR: Chicago – New Hampshire Edition

The Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup is a chance for 16 of the best drivers to start anew, but with only 10 races, divided into four segments, those drivers have very little time to make an impression and even less room for error before eliminations are made. It’s a fragile state that promises to keep the outlook of Who’s Hot and Who’s Not constantly changing for weeks to come. For now, there remain similarities in this Hot or Not ... Read More »

NASCAR Sprint Cup Power Rankings: Top 15 After Richmond

After 26 races and 13 race winners, the 2014 Chase field has been set.

With his win, Keselowski claimed the number one seed as the Chase standing reset heading to Chicago. Results were mixed Saturday night in Richmond, though. Half of the Atlanta Power Rankings top 10 finished in the top 10 this past weekend as well as Ryan ... Read More »

Couch Potato Tuesday: Narrow Focus on Chase Hopefuls Hurts ESPN

Couch Potato Tuesday: Narrow Focus on Chase Hopefuls Hurts ESPN

The Chase was the name of the game last weekend, which is probably how things should be. After all, regardless of one’s opinion of NASCAR’s playoffs, it’s certainly the focal point of the next 10 races, meaning the lead-in is just as important when it comes to determining who gets to play and who’s left out in the cold. But while that emphasis shone through on much of ESPN’s Sprint Cup Series coverage this weekend, one story in particular has ... Read More »
