NASCAR Driver Report Cards: Part III

So you might remember a few weeks ago when I graded the Sprint Cup full-timers through Driver Report Cards…and promptly stopped at the letter K. No, I don’t have a weird idea of what the alphabet should be, nor am I protesting the use of the letters L through Z. The third part just never...

Five Points To Ponder: Busch’s Uphill Battle, Burnt Rubber And Missing TNT

ONE: TNT Time Over the past few years, this would be the point in the season at which FOX Sports would be saying prolonged and distraught goodbyes, replete with plenty of crocodile tears, from the broadcast booth. Up next on the broadcast schedule would have been a six-race stretch with TNT. And every year that...

Who’s Hot and Who’s Not in NASCAR: Pocono Edition

Burnouts (Hot) It’s one thing to be fast for most of the race, but it’s quite another to be the fastest at the end of a race. Figuring out just how to work the end game of a race can be pretty tricky. But that’s what championship teams do, and the No. 48 team got...

Couch Potato Tuesday: FOX Can’t Fix Boredom

Beside the Rising Tide: Tired of All This

There’s an increasing number of media pundits and plain old race fans who are calling for Dover to lose one or both of its race dates, having decided that racing at the track has become single file and even, perhaps, boring. I’ll admit I was a bit surprised to have this site’s owner and editor-in-chief,...

IndyCar Standings Consolidate After Belle Isle

Mother Nature had her way with the Verizon IndyCar Series in Belle Isle over the weekend, producing two surprise winners and suppressing the dominance otherwise displayed by Team Penske and Chip Ganassi Racing this season.

Jimmie Johnson’s Legacy Not On His Mind As He Approaches Historic Mark

Success for Jimmie Johnson is what keeps him going. It makes his humble, happy and proud. What it does not do is provide him much time to think about his legacy in NASCAR.
