Thinkin’ Out Loud – Quaker State 400 – Kentucky Speedway

Thinkin’ Out Loud – Quaker State 400 – Kentucky Speedway

Key Moment – With 25 laps to go, Joey Logano’s car lost a cylinder in his engine. Logano was the only car on the track that had shown any potential to challenge Brad Keselowski for the win. Once his car no longer had all its ponies, the only worry left for the eventual winner was whether or not his power plant would suffer the same fate. In a Nutshell – Brad Keselowski started the race on the pole. He led at ... Read More »

Do Not Count Out the “Other” Teams Just Yet

Do Not Count Out the “Other” Teams Just Yet

Hendrick Motorsports went on a tear at the intermediate tracks recently, leaving us, at times, to  question if anyone else had anything for the team that seemed to be hitting on everything with the new rules package. The Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway proved that conclusions shouldn’t be drawn for year’s end just yet. Sure, Kentucky is not a track that the Hendrick organization has performed their best at in the track’s short Cup series history. Nevertheless, it is a ... Read More »

Tracking the Trucks: UNOH 225

Tracking the Trucks: UNOH 225

In a Nutshell: A caution with 12 laps to go couldn’t stop Kyle Busch in route to victory lane as Busch dominated the UNOH 225 at Kentucky Speedway en route to victory. It marks Busch’s fifth victory this season in five NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts this season so far. It also marks the 10th consecutive victory for Toyota dating back to Erik Jones’ at Phoenix International Speedway last year and the ninth win for Kyle Busch Motorsports in ... Read More »

Who’s Hot / Who’s Not In NASCAR: Sonoma-Kentucky Edition

Who’s Hot / Who’s Not In NASCAR: Sonoma-Kentucky Edition

Another stop in California left the road course specialists of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series wishing for another try.  They’ll get one eventually, but for now, the Chase picture remains unchanged. Carl Edwards added another victory, a first ever at Sonoma, and helped Roush Fenway Racing get back in the win column.  Next up is Kentucky Speedway, where it’s back to making left turns and likely a return to watching the stars of Cup lead the way from start to ...

Truckin’ Thursdays: Memorable Series Moments Part I

Truckin’ Thursdays: Memorable Series Moments Part I

While the Nationwide and Cup series head out west for a visit to Sonoma, the Camping World Truck Series once again sits idle, and until NASCAR adjusts the schedule so these off weeks come along much less frequently, fans are left with quite a bit of downtime in between events. After watching the battle between John Hunter Nemechek and Matt Crafton, German Quiroga and Timothy Peters from Gateway International Speedway last week, I was left thinking about some of the ...

Top 15 Power Rankings After Michigan

Top 15 Power Rankings After Michigan

Remember when all anyone could talk about was the fact Jimmie Johnson hadn’t won a race yet in 2014, and he kept saying over and over again not to worry? Looks like he was right. Johnson played the late-race pit strategy perfectly en route to his first career win at Michigan and third overall in 2014. Six-Time has now become the first driver this season to win three races and has only four tracks at which he remains winless: Kentucky, ... Read More »
