What a difference in a few years

It seems like an eternity ago but remember when Truex was running with MWR?  He was in the Napa Toyota and qualified for the chase.  Then ClintBonehead spun on purpose and caused a sh_t storm.  People were fired, sponsors left and it seemed like Truex might be done.  Now Martin is dominating on the track…

Throw it all back 

I’m starting to love the ideas of throwback paint schemes, this year there is some awesome ones.  I love all aspects of this sport and have no problems with the pricing of driver merchandise or food at the track. Ask my wife, I buy a ton of it every year lol.  But let’s take it…

Dale Jr out for the Season 

Well the announcement was made this morning that Dale Jr will sit out the remainder of the season.  Our way of thinking now must change from ” will he come back and make the Chase” to ” will be able to come back at all and race “.   Bad news for us fans and the…

Larson wins finally 

Kyle Larson wins in the Irish Hills of Michigan. There was never any doubt of Larson’s skill, this win will be the first of many for him.  Now we wait for Chase Elliott to capture his first Sprint cup win, it’s just around the corner.  And a great run and finish for Ryan Blaney!!! These…

Off To Michigan

Well I’m off to Michigan International Speedway tomorrow with my racing buddies and was hoping to see Jeff Gordon in the 88 car , but will have to settle for Alex Bowman, ugh!! I still believe it would be best for JR to stay out of the car for the remainder of the season, and…

Two more races 

Announced that Dale Jr will miss two more races.  I’m getting very worried, I have a bad feeling!  I’m now hoping he is capable of coming back! 

NASCAR looking at Burnouts

So NASCAR said they are now looking into victory celebrations with regards to the cars being damaged and not being able to meet post inspections.  I think it’s about time, don’t get me wrong I love it as well as the next fan, but some teams intentions may not always  be on the up and…

Just a Fan

I’ve been a die hard NASCAR fan for over thirty years and now a writer for the last couple. And while I follow all the technical changes and inner workings of the sport I often wonder what a person would think while watching their very first race.  Would they say” why is there so many…

Truex Signs Extension

Martin Truex Jr signs two year extension with Furniture Row.  With technical alliance from JGibbs racing, single car team clinches another Chase spot .

David and Goliath

So nice to see Chris Buescher and Front Row use the rain and fog to their advantage and win in Pocono. ¬†Your first win is so special, no matter how you earn it. ¬†And he still earned it, you have to be set up and play the cautions to your advantage and they played the…

What to do about Indy

So it was the Kyle Busch show again, from the pole to the checkers he dominated the field.   As I watched the race with others you could not help but notice and hear the comments ” there’s nobody there”.  Yes the grandstands look empty but from what I’m told, it’s not a great track…
