Voices from the Cheap Seats: After Giving It Some Thought…

Voices from the Cheap Seats: After Giving It Some Thought…

There have been a few issues arising recently in the world of NASCAR about which I have been loquaciously silent. Loquacious is sort of like deafening silence, for those of you still wondering what it means (or maybe the opposite… look it up!).

So with the Sprint Cup Series silent ... Read More »

The Calm Before The Storm

The Calm Before The Storm

If nothing else, NASCAR enters this particular Monday morning well rested. Fresh off its last Sprint Cup off weekend, the news cycle slowed to a crawl last week as most participants were busy enjoying life elsewhere, away from the cameras on some Caribbean island.

Yet this one fell flat. Yeah, this year has been a difficult one with regards to weather and racing, so much so that the wunderkind Air Titan 2.0 has been ... Read More »

NASCAR Mailbox: NASCAR Makes LOTR Fans A-N-G-R-Y

NASCAR Mailbox: NASCAR Makes LOTR Fans A-N-G-R-Y

Many a NASCAR fan has been sent into a blinding rage when their promised NASCAR race was pre-empted by, oh, literally anything else. Say the race is on ESPN, during a given week, but the network is airing a football game that runs long and into the time slot NASCAR is scheduled for. Suddenly, the Twitter-sphere is flooded with comments like “See? ESPN doesn’t care about NASCAR” or “Stupid football, no one is watching this game anyway, it’s a blowout!” ... Read More »
