Pace Laps: Congenial Richmond, KyBu Nationwide, other stuff

Pace Laps: Congenial Richmond, KyBu Nationwide, other stuff

Cup:  The Race That Wasn’t – No one did anything surprising in the race at Richmond.  Well, that’s not correct.  The idiot who climbed the catchfence in turn 4 surely did something surprising.  While many people have done idiotic things at a race track, it’s doubtful that anyone anticipated a fan climbing the fence bordering the track and using it as a perch.  Aside from the unbelievable asininity, if you look at the photos, the idiot was so bored he ...

Voice of Vito: Scouting Championship Scenarios in Pre-Chase Preview

Saturday night’s Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway will mark the final event of the 26-week regular season and set the stage for the latest iteration of NASCAR’s Chase playoff system. It’s been 10 years and four championship scenarios now, of heading into RIR the first weekend of September to see who’s in and who’s out.

Fantasy Insider: Chasing NASCAR’s New Chase Game

Fantasy Insider: Chasing NASCAR’s New Chase Game

NASCAR introduced its new fantasy game that will begin next week called the Perfect Chase Grid Challenge. It will give fans a chance to predict which drivers will make it through each round of the Chase, with four being eliminated after the Dover race, four more being finished after Talladega and then four more after Phoenix, leaving NASCAR with its version of the Final Four in the final race at Homestead. It sounds interesting and all, and I’ll probably give ... Read More »

Happiness Is… Denny Hamlin, the Schedule & Tony Stewart’s Return

Happiness Is… Denny Hamlin, the Schedule & Tony Stewart’s Return

The schedule came out this past week and it gave everyone who follows NASCAR something to gripe about.  In truth, all the criticisms are valid because NASCAR, due to the way the business is run, is unable to make serious changes that would make people feel happy, though that can be a moving target. The one big positive is that the Darlington race, has once again moved back to its fabled spot on the calendar: Labor Day weekend.  In discussing ... Read More »

NASCAR Mailbox: NASCAR Listened …. Now The Fans Have A Job To Do

NASCAR Mailbox: NASCAR Listened …. Now The Fans Have A Job To Do

You know what they say … the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Fans have been crying out for Darlington Raceway to get its historical Labor Day weekend back since the last holiday race weekend back in 2003. Despite the hot temperatures in the South Carolina heat, it seems that tradition won out over NASCAR’s own stubbornness on this one, and fans can once again celebrate their three-day weekend at an egg-shaped racetrack. Now my only concern is if the attendance ... Read More »

Who’s Hot and Who’s Not in NASCAR: Bristol – Atlanta Edition

Who’s Hot and Who’s Not in NASCAR: Bristol – Atlanta Edition

Bristol Motor Speedway has been the measure for mental and emotional toughness in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series throughout much of the modern era. It certainly played the part during the IRWIN Tools Night Race as some potential Chasers lost their cool – and with it, their footing in the standings. On the flip side, another driver joined the ranks of Sprint Cup’s elite and stands primed for a championship run. Will this “toasty” competitor realize his true potential or ... Read More »

Key Moment - With 67 laps to go the caution flag flew for what ended up being the final time on Saturday night. Matt Kenseth stayed on the track with four other cars while Joey Logano headed to pit lane and bolted on four fresh bolognas. When the race restarted, Logano took the green in sixth position and quickly sliced through the cars in front of him. He worked his way past Kenseth on lap 456 and never lost the lead again. In a Nutshell ... Read More »
