Sprint Cup Series: Busch Hanging Tough - With all the drama that unfolded after the race at Charlotte, the storylines seem to overlook one of the more intriguing aspects developing during the Chase, that being Kyle Busch.  If there had been odds in Las Vegas on who might be involved in such postrace nuttiness, KyBu’s name would have had to be at the top of the board.  Instead, the driver most associated with the adjective tempermental, is having one of the ...

Slipstream Saturday: The Inaugural Russian Grand Prix and Notes

The story that continues to hover over Formula One is Jules Bianchi’s crash last weekend in Japan.  Little in the way of details have been released about Bianchi’s injuries other than that he suffered a diffuse axonal brain injury.  This kind of injury is seriousness at its most poignant and Bianchi may very well be fighting for his life. Not surprisingly, the series held a press conference to go over the incident, discussing what happened, but also offering scant information ... Read More »

Sprint Cup Series: The Mighty Stumble - Hendrick Motorsports has long been the barometer to which other teams measure themselves.  Their position atop the performance and business hierarchy make them an easy target, similar to teams like the New York Yankees or the New England Patriots.  And for those who love to take a shot at them, then this past race at Kansas was for you, as Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., and Kasey Kahne all got personal with the wall ...

Slipstream Saturday: The Japanese Grand Prix & Big News

The Lowdown Formula One returns to action this weekend, racing in Japan at the Suzuka track, one known for its tricky corners.  This aspect has been highlighted by the fact that the driver sitting third in the points, Daniel Ricciardo, crashed during the second practice.  Or maybe it is confirmed by Lewis Hamilton, sitting first in points, crashed during the third practice session.  Those two incidents alone should provide all that’s need to make for an interesting grand prix. The ... Read More »

Sprint Cup Series: A Hodge-Podge for Chase Drivers - Let’s ignore the fact there were 15 cautions at Loudon, and that most of them happened in the second half of the race, leading to an event that felt like a stop-and-go commute downtown in a major city during rush hour.  The result of all the cautions brought about a mix of strategies and helped even drivers with injured cars find a way to get to the front. When Kyle Busch got ... Read More »

Slipstream Saturday: F1 Singapore Grand Prix Preview

It’s round 14 of the Formula One season, and with the European segment over, it’s time to move to other parts of the world.  This weekend: Singapore.  First begun in 1961, the country held races until 1973, and then fell from the schedule.  It resumed its place on the F1 calendar in 2008, with Fernando Alonso winning the first race, which was also the sport’s first under the lights. In 2014, the Singapore Grand Prix will showcase a battle between the ... Read More »

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 ...

Several drivers left angry with a fellow competitor for a variety of reasons, but it was a bit of a different scenario for Kyle Busch and crew chief Dave Rogers. The duo managed to put another strong car on the track, leading eight laps early on. But a pit road ... Read More »
