Coca Cola 600 Runs Today

Many people think that a NASCAR Sprint Cup race is about longevity, that the driver that’s able to just drive around comfortably and save his car has a better chance of making it to the finish line first. This certainly is just not the case, while managing your car and its resources is ultimately a major factor in determining the final standings in a NASCAR Sprint Cup race. Winning a NASCAR Sprint Cup event certainly requires considerable more than just surviving the carnage that often takes place on a NASCAR track. In fact I would argue that with the advances in technology in all phases of car performance and durability... [Read more]

Stewart-Haas Racing In Position to Race

Practice and patience breeds success in life and NASCAR, it seems as a team that often talked a big game during the preseason, hasn’t been exactly the new kids on the block and has recently achieved a level of success that many thought they would be hard pressed to achieve. Stewart-Haas racing struggled to stay competitive last year, but Saturday night at the Richmond International Raceway it took a big step toward making this level of success a reality. Stewart-Haas racing has it way through the pack to pull up behind the leaders, now can they take the next step Tony Stewart combined fresh tires with great driving skills,... [Read more]

Ambrose Celebrates a Career Weekend at the Glen

Marcos Ambrose took the lead with just three laps to go in Saturday’s Zippo 200 at Watkins Glen to secure his first career Nationwide Series victory in 59 starts. He received the lead by virtue of Jeff Burton and Jimmie Johnson running out of fuel in the closing laps in an episode of bitter-sweet redemption after all the tough luck he’s suffered in NASCAR road course racing in 2008. He came close, but eventually took a back seat to Kyle Busch in Mexico City … mechanical issues ended his day in Sonoma when he made his Sprint Cup debut … and, a pit road speeding penalty robbed him in Montreal. But, none of... [Read more]

Rating the Race: Centurion Boats at the Glen at Watkins Glen

Kyle Busch made perfect on his efforts to sweep the road course races in the Sprint Cup Series this season as he nabbed his first career victory at Watkins Glen International on Sunday. He led four times for a race high 52 laps, giving him his 8th win of the season and making him the first driver to win the races at both Infineon and Watkins Glen in the same year since his Joe Gibbs Racing teammate, Tony Stewart, did it back in 2005. He also won the Nationwide Series race in Mexico City earlier in the year, making him the only driver in NASCAR history to win three road course races in the same season. After rain canceled Friday’s... [Read more]

Casey Mears to Penske Racing is a Make Sense Deal

Casey Mears to Penske Racing is a Make Sense Deal

Despite being handed his walking papers from Hendrick Motorsports when the team announced at the end of June that Casey Mears would no longer be the driver of the no. 5 car in 2009, it’s not exactly the end of world for Mears. Really, if it had to happen, it couldn’t have happened in a better year with seats still remaining open at Richard Childress Racing, Penske Racing, and technically, even Stewart-Haas Racing for next season. With Roger Penske and Ryan Newman recently announcing their split at the end of the year, the no. 12 ride at Penske has now become one of the more highly touted rides available for ‘09.... [Read more]

Tony Stewart is Orchestrating NASCAR’s Twilight Zone

Lately, it seems like all NASCAR fans want to talk about is what’s going on at Stewart-Haas Racing, and rightfully so ….. I mean, it’s a pretty big deal when a guy that’s won 2 championships in the last 7 years decides to end a 10-year tenure with his employer to venture off in the unkown world of team ownership. So, I get it, but the more I think about it, the more it just seems like NASCAR’s version of the Twilight Zone. I mean, let’s put a few things into perspective: 1) Tony’s car next season is going to be sponsored by Office Depot and Old Spice. Think about that for a moment ….... [Read more]

List of the Week: Bubble Drivers Race to the Chase

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 thing as he lingers 203 points out from the final Chase cutoff spot. So, with 8 drivers still caught... [Read more]

Rating the Race: Pocono - Pennsylvania 500

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]
