Did You Notice? … Hornish Hire Sign Of Shift In NASCAR’s Ford Hierarchy

Did You Notice? … Sam Hornish, Jr.’s strategy worked?

NASCAR Mailbox: Championship Frontrunners are Now Chase Backmarkers

NASCAR Mailbox: Championship Frontrunners are Now Chase Backmarkers

When the new Chase format was announced, no other round instilled so much fear as that of the Contender round.

Put yourself in a bad ... Read More »

Even the powerhouse teams like ... Read More »

Voice of Vito: Is Edwards’ Exit Worth The Risk?

Voice of Vito: Is Edwards’ Exit Worth The Risk?

With the announcement that Carl Edwards is headed to Joe Gibbs Racing for the 2015 season to drive their No. 19 Toyotas, its timing may be cause for some reservation. A month ago as rumors ran wild, it looked like a no-brainer; the Roush Fords he had driven for the past decade cars were out to lunch on intermediates, long the bread and butter of Roush Fenway Racing and what Roush Racing had staked its reputation on for nearly 20 ...

Five Points to Ponder: Martin’s Impact, The Glen, and Looking Ahead to ‘15

ONE: Will Dale Earnhardt, Jr. remain strong this season? Fresh off the No. 88 team’s sweep of Pocono, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and outgoing crew chief, Steve Letarte seem to be “firing on all eight cylinders” as Junior stated after their victory at the GoBowling.com 400 at Pocono Raceway on Sunday. But the question remains, with five races to go until the chase, then the grueling ten-race finish of the new Sprint Cup Chase format, will Dale, Jr. be able to ... Read More »
