Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

By Richard Allen
It has been announced that DeWalt Tools will not return in 2010 as the primary sponsor on the #17 Roush Fenway Racing Ford driven by Matt Kenseth. That is not a good sign for Kenseth’s fellow RFR driver, David Ragan.

NASCAR can ill afford another Indy blowout

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

By Richard Allen
Last year’s Brickyard 400 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway was a disaster of monumental proportions. It may well have been the worst race NASCAR has ever staged.
The problem was the tires, or rather, the combination of the tires and the track. Goodyear brought a compound of tire that produced very inconsistent wear patterns. […]

NASCAR haters may have chosen the wrong hero in Mayfield

Monday, July 20th, 2009

By Richard Allen
I do not know with certainty whether Jeremy Mayfield took methamphetamine or not.
I do know that NASCAR has two drug tests that say he did.
I also know that Mayfield and his lawyers have drug tests that say he is clean.
I know that Mayfield’s step-mother claims she saw him use meth on numerous occasions. […]

Sunday, July 19th, 2009

By Richard Allen
Let me begin by saying I like Kyle Busch. Before you scroll down to the comment section to condemn me for that statement, allow me explain.

NASCAR should cancel the rest of the Nationwide Series season

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

By Richard Allen
Seriously, what is the point of having the Nationwide Series?
Every race run in the Nationwide Series this season with the exception of the rain shortened event in Charlotte has been won by a Sprint Cup driver driving for a Sprint Cup team or a team with strong Sprint Cup affiliation. Only Mike Bliss, […]
