Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

By Richard Allen
At the beginning of the 2004 season NASCAR instituted a new way of determining its season champion. The Chase for the Championship was designed to create a meaningful final stretch of the season rather than a coast to the trophy by a driver who had built up such a big lead that he […]

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

By Richard Allen

By Richard Allen
Before the start of the season had just about any NASCAR fan or commentator been asked to name the teams most likely to have multiple wins in 2009 the answers would have been pretty much the same. Hendrick Motorsports, Roush Fenway Racing and Joe Gibbs Racing would have topped almost everyone’s list. However, […]

Friday, June 19th, 2009

By Richard Allen
