Quick Opinion of the Nascar Nationwide Race from Just A Fan’s View

Just a quick thought about the Nationwide race in Canada today. It was so disappointing to see Marcos Ambrose make about only one mistake today. Unfortunately, it was in the last turn on the last lap and it cost him the race. It was definitely disappointing for him (and I hated to see it too.… Continue reading Quick Opinion of the Nascar Nationwide Race from Just A Fan’s View

Nascar at Bristol: Sprint Cup Returns To Short Track Racing in Thunder Valley

How about that “Old Guy”, Mark Martin? Another pole starting position and that makes five on the year, so far, for the guy that wasn’t even supposed to be racing this year and who will be making his 1000th start in the Nascar Cup Series Saturday night in Thunder Valley. I always find it interesting… Continue reading Nascar at Bristol: Sprint Cup Returns To Short Track Racing in Thunder Valley

Nascar at Michigan: The Carfax 400 “After Chatter”

The Carfax 400 came down to a fuel mileage race once again and didn’t disappoint, especially if you like drama and are a Red Bull Team, Bryan Vickers fan. It really looked like Jimmy Johnson was going to take the win until he ran out of gas with a little over two laps to go.… Continue reading Nascar at Michigan: The Carfax 400 “After Chatter”

Nascar Returns to Michigan: Just A Fan’s View of the Carfax 400 at MIS

Nascar returns to Michigan this weekend and it looks like it could be another fuel mileage race, naturally, depending on when the cautions near the end of the race fall.

Nascar at the Glen: Stewart Wins … Again

Tony Stewart continues to amaze many and beat the odds in his first year as an owner/driver.

Nascar at the Glen: Just A Fan’s View of the Race This Weekend at Watkins Glen

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.

Nascar at Pocono: the Pennsylvania 500 “After Chatter” from Just A Fan’s View

“Man, this was the best race at Pocono in recent history,” or, at least, that’s what many were saying. I really can’t say I disagree with that take of the Pennsylvania 500. I think it was exactly what we have come to expect in a Nascar race these days, except for the fact that it… Continue reading Nascar at Pocono: the Pennsylvania 500 “After Chatter” from Just A Fan’s View

Nascar at Pocono: A Fan’s View of Sunday’s Sunoco – Red Cross – Pennsylvania 500

Sunday’s race at Pocono could hold a few surprises. Tony Stewart will have to start in the back, just like last time, and will have his work cut out for himself if he wants to take home the trophy from the Pennsylvania 500 this weekend. I don’t want to jump the gun on myself, but… Continue reading Nascar at Pocono: A Fan’s View of Sunday’s Sunoco – Red Cross – Pennsylvania 500

Nascar at Indy: “After Chatter” from the Brickyard

I knew it wouldn’t take long for the “Black Helicopters” to fly or the ‘whiners’ to start with their, “Nascar controls who wins,” chatter after the Allstate 400 Sunday and I wasn’t wrong. It actually started before and immediately after the race and still goes on today. I think I’ve heard every excuse from, “they… Continue reading Nascar at Indy: “After Chatter” from the Brickyard

Nascar at Indy: the Allstate 400 at the infamous Brickyard, (from Just A Fan’s View)

Very few tracks in motor racing hold such a special place and feeling in the hearts and minds of the competitors and the fans; the Brickyard at Indy is one of those places.

Nascar at Chicagoland “After Chatter”: Mark Martin, Double-file Restarts and the Race for the Chase

Mark Martin clearly had the strongest car Saturday night at Chicagoland and he managed to pull off the victory even though a couple of late race cautions and double-file restarts could have changed the final outcome.
