Who’s Hot and Who’s Not in NASCAR: Charlotte – Talladega Edition

Who’s Hot and Who’s Not in NASCAR: Charlotte – Talladega Edition

With one race remaining in the Contender Round, some of 2014′s biggest names still aren’t contending. Two former champions left Charlotte Motor Speedway unfulfilled and another rides the wrong side of the bubble. Next, a return trip to Talladega Superspeedway does nothing to clear up a complicated Chase picture. The six drivers inside the cutoff without a second round win are within 26 points of not moving onward. This edition of Who’s Hot and Who’s Not sets up what’s forecast ... Read More »

Thinkin’ Out Loud – Charlotte Chase race 5 – Wrestlemania 31

Thinkin’ Out Loud – Charlotte Chase race 5 – Wrestlemania 31

Key Moment – On lap 328, Brian Vickers‘ No. 55 done blowed up. The cleanup from the oil laid down lasted until lap 332. Rodney Childers, crew chief for Kevin Harvick, decided to leave his driver on the track. Several other cars also stayed out, so the two-lap dash to the trophy was a battle among cars with used tires. Harvick grabbed a big lead at the drop of the final green and held on to score his third win of ... Read More »

Four Burning Questions in Charlotte: Must-Win Races and A Surging JGR Team

Four Burning Questions in Charlotte: Must-Win Races and A Surging JGR Team

Well… that was interesting. What I’m referring to of course is last week’s Sprint Cup race at Kansas, an event that could potentially go down as the turning point in this year’s Chase for the Championship. Three pre-Chase favorites, Jimmie Johnson, Brad Keselowski and Dale Earnhardt, Jr., encountered disaster-level problems at Kansas, and with only two races left in the Contender round, those three men find themselves outside of the cutoff line. With next week’s race being at the unpredictable  Talladega ... Read More »

Fantasy Insider: Rolling The Dice At The Chase Halfway Point

Fantasy Insider: Rolling The Dice At The Chase Halfway Point

It was back in mid-May when Jimmie Johnson had yet to win a race this season and there were whispers about what was wrong with the No. 48 team. Maybe the relationship between Johnson and crew chief Chad Knaus wasn’t what it used to be? Maybe the No. 48 team had lost its edge after winning its sixth title last year? Maybe others had caught up to them? But Johnson went on to win the next race at Charlotte and ... Read More »

NASCAR Sprint Cup Power Rankings: Top 15 After Kansas

NASCAR Sprint Cup Power Rankings: Top 15 After Kansas

Team Penske continued their dominating performance during the Chase as Joey Logano captured his fifth win of the season, second in the Chase and locked himself into the eight driver Eliminator Round. The Penske duo of Logano and Brad Keselowski have combined to win three of the first four Chase races. Many thought Talladega would be the wild card race in the Contender Round. After Kansas, however, a number of Chase drivers have used their “mulligan” including Jimmie Johnson, Dale ... Read More »

Voices from the Cheap Seats: Can Matt Kenseth Repeat History?

Voices from the Cheap Seats: Can Matt Kenseth Repeat History?

The more I think about all this elimination crap, the more I hate it. On one hand, it could be a Godsend. On the other, it could show Brian France and the top brass in Daytona that they are indeed dumber than a box of rocks. I’m praying for the latter. Of course, it’s all been said before that surely, when it comes down to it, the true champion will be crowned at Homestead. But wait! Jimmie Johnson crashed? Dale ... Read More »

Who’s Hot / Who’s Not In NASCAR: Kansas – Charlotte Edition

Who’s Hot / Who’s Not In NASCAR: Kansas – Charlotte Edition

The Hollywood Casino 400 had all the twists and turns of a great Hollywood script and left many of the Sprint Cup Series’ best with unfavorable odds of advancement moving forward. A Contender Round opener at Kansas Speedway did a number on the Who’s Hot and Who’s Not landscape and things are just getting started. Charlotte Motor Speedway presents its own set of challenges and is the perfect place for a pivotal race before the probable peril that awaits at ... Read More »
