There’s reason why they call it “the track that’s too tough to tame”, but if anyone has come close to taming it in recent history, the name Jeff Gordon would probably be at the top of the list. He has often performed well at this track and is one of the favorites to win this… Continue reading Nascar At Darlington: Who’ll Tame The Track That’s Too Tough To Tame?
A few unknowns, the relaxing of the bump drafting rules and bad weather on Saturday at Talladega will definitely figure into the mix of the Aaron’s 499 this weekend. If you listen to the drivers, even they expect this to be one of the most exciting Talladega races in a while, (in fact, some even… Continue reading Nascar at Talladega: Bump Drafting Rule Changes and Some Unknowns Could Add A New Dimension to the Usual Talladega Excitement
I know you’ve heard it before, but, the Chase could be all over except for awarding the trophy. Yeah, that’s the word for this weekend’s Ford 400 Nascar finale at Homestead, FL. Whether or not you choose to accept that thinking is up to you. As for me, I think there is enough possibility of… Continue reading Nascar at Homestead: Who’ll Be The Champ AFTER the Ford 400 Is Over?
Who knows what this weekend holds … if anyone ever thought for a moment that nothing unexpected ever happens in Nascar these days, maybe they should think again. Except for Jimmy Johnson and Kurt Bush starting on the front row, many of the faces fans would expect to see starting near the front just aren’t… Continue reading Nascar at the Glen: Just A Fan’s View of the Race This Weekend at Watkins Glen
From this fan’s view, it looked like Jeff Gordon, Kurt Bush and Tony Stewart would be battling right down to the wire and then, the rains came and great strategy by crew chief, Greg Zipadelli, proved to be the winning move that put Joey Logano and the number 20 Home Depot team in Victory lane.… Continue reading Nascar At Loudon “After Chatter”: The Rain Works Magic for Logano at the Magic Mile
As a Nascar fan (and former local short track racer), I just can’t seem to understand why they call it “race” qualifying. It seems it could better be named “pit stall” qualifying rather than qualifying for a good starting spot for the race. If past weeks tell us anything, it would be that qualifying tells… Continue reading Nascar at Michigan: Qualifying May Not Say Much About the Race…again.
Once again the rains have fallen on the Nascar Sprint Cup Series and washed out qualifying for this weekend’s race at Pocono. That means the Cup teams will line up according to owner points. Emotions are mixed amongst the drivers and crews and, although a little time off is a good thing for many, it… Continue reading The Nascar Cup Qualifying Rainout Should Make For An Interesting Pocono Race
The ‘Monster Mile’ at Dover, Delaware once again proved to be a race with lots of surprises and also proved why you never consider a race at ‘the Monster’ to be over before the checkered flag falls. One of the biggest surprises was the last 25 laps and Jimmy Johnson driving hard to overtake Greg… Continue reading “The Monster” After Chatter from Just A Fan’s View
This week, Nascar takes on the Monster Mile at Dover International Speedway and, if qualifying says anything about how things will go, it could prove to be a tough day for more than a few. The Monster can reach out and ruin a day faster than you blink and it has already proven it is… Continue reading Nascar Teams Take on the Monster at Dover
David Reutimann and his “00” team used the old, “We’re stayin’ out and we hope it keeps on raining” strategy to hopefully propel themselves to victory in the Coca Cola 600 this last weekend. Although it took 2 hours for that strategy to finally play out, it proved to be the winning strategy of the… Continue reading Coca Cola 600 “After Chatter” from Just A Fan’s View
