Chasers Take On Texas from a NASCAR Fan’s View

If you’ve been listening to the talking heads this week, you’ve probably noticed they’ve been mentioning a few happenings from previous times in the Chase over the last couple of years. Even so, they had a lot to say about the incident between Matt Kenseth and Joey Logano at Martinsville and how they felt it… Continue reading Chasers Take On Texas from a NASCAR Fan’s View

After Martinsville Damage Assessment from a NASCAR Fan’s View

Once again Martinsville, the shortest track on the NASCAR circuit, became the biggest for drama, tempers, excitement and intensity. A lot happened in the 500 laps around the .526 mile oval that possibly changed the entire outlook for the finale in three weeks at Homestead. The damage done to several of the possible contenders for… Continue reading After Martinsville Damage Assessment from a NASCAR Fan’s View

Martinsville Resets Chase to Eight From a NASCAR Fan’s View

Martinsville resets the Chase to eight. That doesn’t mean there are eight new competitors qualified to compete for the Cup Championship; it just means there are four less actually competing for it. Over the next three races the field will be cut once again down to four and those four will compete head to head… Continue reading Martinsville Resets Chase to Eight From a NASCAR Fan’s View

Talladega Damage Assessment From This NASCAR Fan’s View

Talladega lived up to the expectations many people had for it even though many were upset when it was over. For much of the first three fourths of the race it was mildly interesting and almost caution free. Just because I say it was mildly interesting does not mean it was without intensity or drama… Continue reading Talladega Damage Assessment From This NASCAR Fan’s View

Chasers Face Uncertainty At Talladega from a NASCAR Fan’s View

Only thirteen points separate Denny Hamlin and Martin Truex Jr. The problem with that for both them and all of those in between them is Denny is second in points and Martin is eighth. I don’t remember in recent times so many Chasers facing such uncertainty for one race in the Chase. Since this is… Continue reading Chasers Face Uncertainty At Talladega from a NASCAR Fan’s View

Expect High Intensity at Kansas from a NASCAR Fan’s View

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the race Sunday afternoon at Kansas Speedway will be intense. In fact, I would go so far as to say there just might be a sense of desperation in the intensity level especially for those that didn’t run and finish all that well last weekend. If… Continue reading Expect High Intensity at Kansas from a NASCAR Fan’s View

After Charlotte Damage Assessment from a NASCAR Fan’s View

The rain out of the planned Saturday night race and running it in the afternoon on Sunday wasn’t at all good for some of the Chasers. Not many will admit it, but the time of day probably had at least something to do with the results and how well they adapted to the time change… Continue reading After Charlotte Damage Assessment from a NASCAR Fan’s View

Reset To Twelve and Start Again At Charlotte from a NASCAR Fan’s View

Saturday night under the lights… There’s no better way to make the transition from sixteen to twelve and start all over again. That’s exactly what’s going to happen tonight at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Say what you will but one thing is certain, the Chase format certainly makes for a very intense and dynamically dramatic run… Continue reading Reset To Twelve and Start Again At Charlotte from a NASCAR Fan’s View

After Dover Damage Assessment from a NASCAR Fan’s View

Considering how races on the Monster Mile at Dover have gone in the past, Chase race three was relatively sane in comparison but intense just the same. Of course this fan isn’t naïve enough to think everyone will agree with that statement. I have seen races there that have had many more mishaps and crumpled… Continue reading After Dover Damage Assessment from a NASCAR Fan’s View

It’s Elimination Time at Dover from a NASCAR Fan’s View

Eliminations begin this weekend at Dover Delaware and with the rain out of a practice and qualifying, things could be very interesting, especially for the Challengers in the Chase. The only ones that don’t have to be concerned with where they finish would be Denny Hamlin and Matt Kenseth. Because of qualifying being rained out… Continue reading It’s Elimination Time at Dover from a NASCAR Fan’s View

After New Hampshire Damage Assessment from a NASCAR Fan’s View

  The end of the Sylvania 300 had a lot of “what ifs” in it and, from this fan’s view, those “what ifs” make a world of difference as we leave Chase race two in the rear view and look forward to the week ahead. As expected, Chase race two at New Hampshire was an… Continue reading After New Hampshire Damage Assessment from a NASCAR Fan’s View

Chasers Taking On New Hampshire For Chase Race Two from a NASCAR Fan’s View

  It’s already quite evident that the newest Chase format is doing what it was supposed to do since it was instituted last season and continues on through this one. Tensions and emotions are running very high and we’ve only had one race. This second race in the Chase at New Hampshire takes on its… Continue reading Chasers Taking On New Hampshire For Chase Race Two from a NASCAR Fan’s View
