Color me less than impressed. It’s not that I’m not impressed with Kyle Busch’s talent, that’s pretty hard to ignore.
I love road courses and applaud those who can race them, but the cost/benefit analysis for today’s Nationwide Series road racing doesn’t add up.
Q: How does every NASCAR track that has a race NOT have SAFER walls?
However, along with my absence from Michigan, there is one other glaring omission from next weekend’s festivities in the back 40 of the Motor City – SS.
Following a nasty wreck for Elliott Sadler at Pocono, there was an outcry about the lack of a SAFER barrier at the point where Sadler hit.
On Tuesday (Aug. 3), Baker-Curb Racing announced that Nelson Piquet Jr. will make his Nationwide Series debut in Saturday’s Zippo 200.
NASCAR now has three races on its plate that can be reassigned to other racetracks without increasing the length of the schedule in either series.
NASCAR’s notorious dictatorial style was obviously at work during the week leading up to Pocono.
An old-school element came into play here. Due to ESPN’s live coverage of the Ricoh Women’s British Open, NASCAR Countdown was pushed to ESPN2.
Kyle Busch scored his ninth Nationwide Series victory of the year in the US Cellular 250, putting down a spirited early challenge from polesitter Trevor Bayne.
NASCAR can’t get caught up in that whole mentality that people don’t like Jimmie Johnson winning to the point of changing the Chase rules yet again.
In today’s NASCAR sponsors care less and less about on-track performance and more and more about a driver’s “marketability” in other areas.
