The final off week for the Cup Series comes at a perfect time. It’s a chance for EVERYBODY (drivers, teams, fans, media, etc.) to exhale and recharge for the stretch run. We are 24 races into a 36-race schedule, and there has been no shortage of storylines. Here are three of the big ones with […]
1. Chase Has His Day I’m going to call myself out. I have been very skeptical, if not critical of Chase Elliott. I was of the belief he was all fluff and no substance, a young man gifted a top ride because he is the son of a NASCAR legend. Time for me to eat […]
Ryan Truex’s NASCAR journey can best be described as…unsteady. He burst onto the scene at 17 years old and immediately won back to back K&N East titles in 2009 and 2010. Truex then moved up to the Xfinity Series, landing part-time rides with Michael Waltrip Racing and Joe Gibbs Racing. In 28 races over a […]
1. Rowdy Takes Advantage What makes Kyle Busch so dangerous this season is his consistency. Busch has a top-five car every single week and his crew is arguably the best in the business. That’s one heck of a combination. And it has led to a lot of wins. Here’s an interesting stat. In Busch’s six […]
1. Game On! So…the next Kevin Harvick/Kyle Busch duel should be plenty interesting. Busch acknowledged after the race Harvick’s bump-and-run move was fair game. Just don’t be surprised when Busch returns the favor. And there is no doubt in my mind the opportunity will come, maybe as soon as next week at Pocono. “How you race […]
Chase Briscoe will get another shot at Eldora glory when the Camping World Truck Series makes its annual trip to the half-mile dirt track Wednesday night. Briscoe will pilot the No. 27 Ford Performance F-150, the fifth entry for ThorSport Racing. “I’m really excited to head to Eldora Speedway this week. Growing up racing dirt, […]
1. Truex Unbeatable…Again For the second year in a row, Martin Truex Jr. made Kentucky Speedway his personal playground. In the last two races at Kentucky, Truex has led 326 of a possible 541 laps. That’s 60 percent! The next closest is Kyle Busch, who led 112 laps in the 2017 race. He did not […]
Earlier today, I was fortunate enough to get a quick ride around Kentucky Speedway, courtesy of NASCAR pace car driver Brett Bodine. Of course, I had to record it. I won’t lie…it was pretty bada**.
There is a new rivalry in the Cup series: Kyle Busch versus Ricky Stenhouse Jr. During a media session on Friday, Busch was asked if Stenhouse had reached out to him following last week’s incident at Daytona. Never one to mince words, Busch said there had been no dialogue between the two. “He did not […]
Ben Rhodes earned an emotional win at his home track in the Camping World Truck Series Thursday night. On Friday, Rhodes was still on cloud nine when talking about his victory at Kentucky Speedway.
