It’s fair to say that 2009 was not a tremendous year for NASCAR TV advertising.
After last year’s damp squib of a race, what NASCAR needs is a Daytona 500 that lives up to the famous old moniker, “The Great American Race.”
The high point in 2009 for Denny Hamlin was his emotional hometown victory at Richmond International Raceway in the final race before the Chase.
Making the Chase has to go down as Juan Pablo Montoya’s highlight of the year.
It was a tremendous season for Hendrick Motorsports, so as thoughts turn to 2010, I’m going to take a look at nine non-Hendrick drivers to watch.
if you’ll forgive the crass reference, Jeff Gordon’s “Drive for Five” has very much “short-circuited” all over again.
What the 38th-place finish for Jimmie Johnson did do was open up a small sliver of opportunity for Mark Martin and Jeff Gordon.
I was appalled by the lack of racing and then carnage at the end of what purported to be a NASCAR race, but was a glorified 2.66-mile game of Scalextric.
Fast forward to Sunday’s return to the track in the shadow of the Blue Ridge and there’s three words that sum up where we are: Jimmie flipping Johnson.
For all intents and purposes Carl Edwards’s quest for his first Sprint Cup crown is over. Surprise, surprise.
Hands up those who predicted Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s season would be quite this bad? Not so many of you, huh?
All told, it was a damn fine weekend for Juan Pablo Montoya.
