NASCAR and racing is all about you, the fans who come out to see the races and talk to the racers that are heroes for millions of Americans. In order to give as much back to the fans and let the fans get a little closer to some of their NASCAR heroes. Roush Fenway Racing is hosting a fall Fan Day extravaganza on Oct 15 at their Concord, N.C. offices. Fans making an appearance at this event will be able to get the autograph for their scrap book of NASCAR celebrities like Colin Braun, Jack Roush, David Ragan, Ricky Stenhouse …read more
The lights were shining above David Ragan on Friday night as he held off Roush Fenway Racing teammate Carl Edwards during green-white-checkered-flag finish to take the win in the Food City 250 Nationwide Series race held at Bristol Motor Speedway outside of Bristol, Tennessee.
Ragan was in the front of the pack for the last 56 laps of the scheduled 250 mile race on the .533-mile surface of Bristol Motor Speedway. He was able to hold off Carl Edwards during the last few laps and pulled ahead of Edwards to stay in the final few corners. Edwards has a lot …read more
The 2009 NASCAR season is on its one week break that traditionally happens every year, so to mark this occasion, we’ve decided to do go over the report card for the 2009 season. We’ll go over a few of the surprises and disappointments on NASCAR’s national levels so far this year.
The biggest disappointment of the year for many will be the disappointing year of Dale Earnhardt Jr. Expectations were high for Dale but he has had a hard time getting his car up to speed all year, but hopefully these are just growing pains and he’ll find his wheels next …read more
If you’re a NASCAR fan and planning on being in sunny Dayton Beach, Florida, this Saturday night the place to be will be Daytona International Speedway as Sprint Cup cars will once again roar down the pavement of iconic Daytona International Speedway in the Coke Zero 400.
The Coke Zero 400 will be the 18th race of the season for the racers and teams, in a season that has been exciting, and as we look ahead to Saturday night at one of the most recognized and popular race tracks in the world, this competition should be a real barn-burner.
Thursdays practice at …read more

Roush currently sits fifth in owner’s points and will be vying for his 100th win in the Nationwide Series at Nashville; Stenhouse is a talented driver who could help get him …read more
The winless streaks by drivers such as Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon and Kevin Harvick have ranked amongst some of the biggest stories so far this season. They came into this week’s race at Watkins Glen as some of the odds-on-favorite to win, but alas, Kyle Busch shut the door on those plans yet again. This week’s “List of the Week” will feature the 10 longest winless droughts amongst the drivers inside the top-20 in points.
10. Matt Kenseth – 22 races – Last Win: Homestead-Miami Speedway, Fall 2007
9. Jeff Gordon – 27 races – Lowe’s Motor Speedway, Fall 2007
8. Greg Biffle …read more
With the cutoff for the Chase quickly approaching, a mere 5 races now separates us from the beginning of NASCAR’s playoff season. Yet, still, there is quite a bit of uncertainty in the air as to whom will be competing for a championship in the final 10 races and who will be racing to build momentum for the 2009 season. Only 80 points separates 7th place Kasey Kahne from 12th place Clint Bowyer, and only 46 points from Bowyer back to 14th place David Ragan. Even Brian Vickers all the way back in 16th still has a shot at this …read more
Rain played a large part in pretty much anything NASCAR tried to accomplish this weekend, and Sunday’s race at Pocono was no different. It was also one of the more interesting weekends in Carl Edwards’ professional racing career, that’s for sure. He had to squeegee the rain off his own windshield under caution during Saturday’s Nationwide Series race in Montreal (in which he finished 6th). Then, after both of the Sprint Cup practice sessions were rained out on Saturday, his team unloaded off the hauler on Sunday with a car that Crew Chief, Bob Osbourne, described as “experimental.” Then, they …read more

There’s only 6 races to go before we make it to Richmond, and then, after that 7th race is over, we’ll know once and for all who’s in and who’s out of the 2008 Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship. Historically speaking – since they first turned to the Chase format a few years ago – those who were in at this point in the season have typically stayed in, and those who were out have typically stayed out ….. but, this season could be one that breaks all the rules. While I …read more

Even with the Sprint Cup Series taking the week off, it was still a busy weekend for Missouri native, Carl Edwards …. particularly because he decided to commit to a three-day bicycle trip from his hometown of Columbia, MO to the track that lies in Madison, IL – just outside of the St. Louis metro-area.
Edwards made the trip and got to the track in time to qualify third for the Missouri-Illinois Dodge Dealers 250 at Gateway International Raceway, and then passed Jason Leffler with 48 laps remaining en route to picking up …read more
