Who’s Hot and Who’s Not: New Hampshire – Off Week Edition

Who’s Hot and Who’s Not: New Hampshire – Off Week Edition

A stop at New Hampshire Motor Speedway marked the end of TNT’s Summer Series and a served as a precursor to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series’ last off-week, or calm before the storm that is the wicked countdown to the Chase and the highly anticipated playoff eliminators. This edition of Who’s Hot and Who’s Not marks a return to good old-fashioned short track racing, after Mother Nature played a predominant role in the outcome in Daytona. HOT Brad Keselowski is ...

Five Points to Ponder: A Week Off, the Lost Shepherd and Burton’s (Possibly) Final Run

Five Points to Ponder: A Week Off, the Lost Shepherd and Burton’s (Possibly) Final Run

ONE: A MUCH DESERVED WEEK OFF It’s a temporary respite this weekend for the Sprint Cup circus as NASCAR’s top series goes dark for one final time before the stretch run to the finish in November. For the drivers, crews and teams it’s a chance to catch their collective breath ahead of a grueling 17 straight weeks of racing before we crown a champion at the one-and-a-half-mile Homestead-Miami Speedway on Nov. 16. Expect, then, over the next few days a ... Read More »

Thinkin’ Out Loud – New Hampshire – Keselowski Turns the Competition Redd

Thinkin’ Out Loud – New Hampshire – Keselowski Turns the Competition Redd

Key Moment - The Penske cars were both strong at New Hampshire, with Brad Keselowski being the strongest. Joey Logano was looking better as the race progressed and seemed to be poised to make Keselowski earn his win when the the two teammates caught Morgan Shepherd to put him yet another lap down. Shepherd slid up in the corner as Logano went past and wrecked the second place runner out of the event. From then on it was a foregone ... Read More »

The Big Six: Questions Answered After the Camping World RV Sales 301

Looking for the Who, What, When, Where, Why and How behind Sunday’s race? Amy Henderson has you covered each week with the answers to six race day questions, covering all five W’s and even the H…the Big Six. Who…gets my shoutout of the race?

The Fallacy Of The Fastest 43

The Fallacy Of The Fastest 43

Every American major league sport sells itself as the best of the best. The Super Bowl is designed to crown the “best” football team in the world (Canadian Football, be damned!) The Stanley Cup is fought with the “top” hockey players signed to North American contracts. On Tuesday, Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game will highlight the “best” players at each position, from each league in a celebration-turned-weak competition. But even the best sales job avoids an awkward reality: that “buzz ... Read More »

Keselowski’s Dominance: What Does it Mean for September?

Keselowski’s Dominance: What Does it Mean for September?

For the second time in the last three races, Team Penske was on top of their game.  Brad Keselowski turned in a dominating performance, seeming to easily weave his way to the front no matter what  others strategies were thrown at him.  Joey Logano was making a valiant attempt at keeping up with his teammate and running in the runner up spot when taken out of the race.  It is the prime time of the year to be peaking, especially ...

NASCAR Sprint Cup Power Rankings: Top 15 After Daytona-2

NASCAR Sprint Cup Power Rankings: Top 15 After Daytona-2

It was not the way anyone expected or wanted the race to end, but one fact cannot be denied: Aric Almirola is a winner in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. He put the famed No. 43 back in Victory Lane for the first time since 1999, launching it right into the 2014 Chase during the process. Rain postponed the race from Saturday to Sunday afternoon, eventually forcing NASCAR officials to call the Coke Zero 400 only 112 laps into the ... Read More »

Racing to the Point: Aric Almirola Adds Another Asterisk

Racing to the Point: Aric Almirola Adds Another Asterisk

Every sport has its share of asterisks. There are always going to be games, races and matches that don’t end to our satisfaction, records that are cheaply broken and even legacies that are called into question. Baseball deals with the term more than any other sport. Alex Rodriguez could actually trademark the asterisk at this point, and one of the game’s most revered records is held by Barry Bonds, a man regarded by many as a cheater. In basketball, there ...

Five Points: Halfway Home, Rocket Man & Sliced Bread

Five Points: Halfway Home, Rocket Man & Sliced Bread

ONE: HALFWAY HOME Saturday evening’s race under the lights on the high banks of Daytona International Speedway will mark the 18th race of the season and thus the halfway mark on the 2014 Sprint Cup schedule. Given the sheer length of the season the point at which we have more races in the books than less always comes as something of a surprise. You get so used, I suppose, to the cadence of the calendar that there comes a point ... Read More »

Four Burning Questions – Kentucky: Rough Rides and Short Fields

Four Burning Questions – Kentucky: Rough Rides and Short Fields

Kentucky Speedway is the site of the seventeenth round of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season, and with the halfway point of the season only one week away, we have a rather clear picture of who the contenders will be going forward as well as how the Chase may unfold. Kentucky is now entering it’s fourth season on the Sprint Cup circuit, and after three full races at the Sparta, KY facility, we have a pretty clear idea of what ... Read More »
