Cup Qualifying Canceled; Said in the Show Despite the Rain

Though they may not admit it, several drivers in the Sprint Cup garage area were probably a bit smitten when NASCAR was forced to cancel qualifying for the Centurion Boats at the Glen at Watkins Glen International on Friday. The simple fact of the matter is that several drivers near the top at points are going to receive a better starting position that they likely would have, and while it still may not exactly give them a shot at winning Sunday’s race, it obviously provides a good path towards a better finish. That would be the guys like Greg Biffle … [Read More]

Rating the Race: Daytona – Coke Zero 400

*Credit photo to Sporting News 
Kyle Busch won his sixth race of the Sprint Cup season and picked up the second Cup restrictor plate win of his career, much to the dismay of the crowd on-hand at Daytona International Speedway for Saturday night’s Coke Zero 400. But, whether or not you like Kyle Busch is irrelevent – what you cannot deny is that the action at Daytona was exciting once again and should be considered another victory for the Car of Tomorrow.
Paul Menard led the field to green after winning the Coors Lite Pole Award during Friday’s qualifying session, and he held onto … [Read More]

Road Course Ringers Flood Sonoma

As you tune into TNT this Sunday afternoon to watch NASCAR’s Cup race, your first inclination may very well be that you mistakenly tuned into the IndyCar Series race … but, wait … why are they driving stock cars, right? Well, don’t try to adjust the set or flip the channel, because that, my friend, is indeed the Sprint Cup Series, and that’s what we call road racin’.
See, for as long as I can remember, twice a year team owners go out and fetch themselves an experienced road course racer in an effort to tame the mountains in Sonoma, CA … [Read More]

Kahne Wins Second Pocono Pole

Image details: Pocono 500 Qualifying served by picapp.com
For the second time in his Sprint Cup career, Kasey Kahne has turned the quickest qualifying lap at Pocono, thus earning himself the Coors Lite Pole Award. His first pole position at Pocono came back in 2004 when he set the track qualifying record at 172.533 mph. The lap he turned on Friday afternoon was about 2 mph slower and took 52.873 seconds, but it got the job done, nonetheless, and he will start Sunday’s Pocono 500 from the inside of row 1.
Jimmie Johnson was the first driver to qualify for the race … [Read More]

Rating the Race: Richmond – Dan Lowry 400

Image details: The Dan Lowry 400 served by picapp.com   
Saturday night’s running of the Crown Royal Presents the Dan Lowry 400 was one of dominance, heartbreak, surprise, and all-around pure excitement, and the Sprint Cup Series manage to squeeze it all into just 400 laps at Richmond International Raceway. In fact, there hasn’t been any official report published on it, but I’d be willing to bet that at least a handful of fans at Richmond suffered from anxiety attacks, and the rest of them were probably focusing their efforts on tracking down the driver of the no. 18 Joe Gibbs … [Read More]
