Nascar at Sonoma: The Infineon ‘After Chatter’ from Just a Fan’s View

The race at Infineon proved to be a real test of the double-file restart and ended with Richard Petty Motorsport’s Kasey Kahne, taking the win over Tony Stewart.

Nascar at Sonoma: Infineon Will Be A Shootout between Ringers and Regulars

I love watching road racing with stock cars and Nascar road racing with the COT is definitely at the top of my list. There’s just something I like about a full body race car going fast and turning right as well as left. I’m not one of those fans that thinks Nascar should drop the… Continue reading Nascar at Sonoma: Infineon Will Be A Shootout between Ringers and Regulars

Nascar at Michigan “After Chatter”: Fuel Mileage, with Horsepower, Takes Mark Martin to the Victory

Michigan proved to be a fuel mileage track once again and, much like Pocono last week, Jimmy Johnson came up just a bit short on fuel conservation. Although he dominated during most of the Michigan race, unfortunately, he didn’t dominate the last lap. Mark Martin was ready to settle for just a good, strong finish… Continue reading Nascar at Michigan “After Chatter”: Fuel Mileage, with Horsepower, Takes Mark Martin to the Victory

Nascar at Michigan: Qualifying May Not Say Much About the Race…again.

As a Nascar fan (and former local short track racer), I just can’t seem to understand why they call it “race” qualifying.

Nascar at Pocono: After Chatter from Just A Fan

The Nascar Cup Qualifying Rainout Should Make For An Interesting Pocono Race

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.

“The Monster” After Chatter from Just A Fan’s View

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

Coca Cola 600 “After Chatter” from Just A Fan’s View

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
