A Quick Thought on Post-Race Dustups

It’s taken me a week to process the whole Bristol/WWE scenario, but one thing jumped out at me. While almost everyone thought that Carl Edwards was right to spin out Kyle Busch, one thing was overlooked. This is the third time since 2006 that Carl Edwards has used his car to spin out someone else […]

White NASCAR Drivers

I am still not sure if there is a whole connection between NASCAR racing in California and the color white. But, this weekend we find Jimmie Johnson carrying the white “super hero” look banner in his spiffy and spanky white Jimmie Johnson Foundation firesuit. I think someone needs to stand up in the next corporate […]

Silly Season Update: The Reed for Speed

Gillett Evernham Motorsports (GEM) signed Reed Sorenson to a contract this week. It’s one more blow for Ganassi Racing, although on the bright side they now have two cars for their two remaining drivers. For Sorenson and GEM it could be a nice reclamation project. Sorenson is only 22, has three years of Cup experience […]

Fontana Preview

Sunday night marks the final Labor Day race at California, er sorry Auto Club Speedway. It caps an illustrious, rich, five year history. Next year Atlanta will get the Labor Day weekend event, which is not the Southern 500, but is at least a compromise for hard core traditionalists. The race has featured blistering heat, […]

Silly Season Update: Logano’s Run

The 1976 sci-fi movie Logan’s Run was a story about a futuristic society that prized youth more than anything. So prized in fact, that anyone over 30 was euthanized. Joe Gibbs Racing’s 2009 driver lineup has a similar theme. Not that they sent Tony Stewart out to pasture, but if any team can cope with […]

NASCAR announced today that it has placed Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards on probation for the next six races in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, as a result of their on-track incident last Saturday at the conclusion of the race at Bristol Motor Speedway. Busch, driver of the No. 18 car and Edwards, driver of […]

2008 NASCAR Fantasy Preview: Auto Club Speedway II

Pepsi 500 And the beat goes on. Another boring race in California and another battle between Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards for the win this weekend. My Pick To Win I’m going to put my money on Carl to keep his momentum going and pull a little closer to Kyle as we near the Chase. […]

Silly Season Update:Penske for Your Thoughts?

“Jr Motorsports’ Nationwide driver Brad Keselowski has enjoyed a breakout 2008. He has two wins and sits second in the point standings. He is now considered one of the brightest prospects in NASCAR. It’s hardly surprising that Penske Racing offered him the chance to replace Ryan Newman in the #12 car in 2009. What is […]

What Kind of Pictures does Casey Mears Have?

Richard Childress Racing announced Friday that Casey Mears will drive the #07 car in 2009 while Clint Bowyer moves to the #33 and new sponsor Betty Crocker (fingers crossed for a better paint scheme than Hamburger Helper). While merchandisers and diecast makers can now begin production for 2009, there is one very large issue still […]
