My prediction: Joey Logano will win in Michigan

Friday, June 11th, 2010

By Richard Allen
You ever just have one of those feelings? For some reason you get a vibe that something is right even when logic says it may not be. Well, that’s the feeling I have had all week when thinking about who I wanted to pick to win this race.
I know Ford has had a […]

College conferences considering realignment should look at NASCAR

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

By Richard Allen
Rumors and even factual reports are all over the place regarding the fate of several college sports conferences. This team is going here while that team is going there. The Big 10, Big 12, Pac-10 and possibly the SEC and ACC may all be impacted in one way or another by changes that […]

What if Sprint Cup racing used a dirt style format?

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

By Richard Allen
Now that many NASCAR fans have watched the ‘Prelude to the Dream’, I wonder what NASCAR fans would think if the Sprint Cup Series used a dirt racing type format? After all, it was pointed out during the pay-per-view airing of the charity race that a number of NASCAR’s top brass were on […]

NASCAR, Wal-Mart and Hendrick…What a perfect combination

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

By Richard Allen
Published reports have stated that NASCAR and Hendrick Motorsports are in talks to bring retail giant Wal-Mart to the sport as a sponsor and supplier of merchandise.
Could there possibly be three entities that could be better suited for each other?
Perhaps no sporting league has ever had a greater aptitude for linking itself to […]

Prelude preview: Dirt Racing 101

Monday, June 7th, 2010

By Richard Allen
For many NASCAR fans the annual ‘Prelude to the Dream’ is their one and only glimpse into dirt track racing each year. So, there may be some watching Wednesday night’s pay-per-view broadcast of the charity race with little understanding of what is going on.
To begin, I do not profess to be an expert […]

Bobby Labonte Racing had a great weekend even if their boss did not

Monday, June 7th, 2010

By Richard Allen
NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Bobby Labonte did not have a good weekend in Pocono. He finished 38th after completing only 32 laps of the Gillette Fusion 500. For that matter, the former champion has had a terrible season thus far. He has not had a single top-20 finish in all of 2010.
However, […]

Logano vs. Harvick and Kahne vs. Allmendinger add to year of the feud

Sunday, June 6th, 2010

By Richard Allen
Perhaps not since Cale Yarborough and the Allison brothers wrestled in the Daytona mud has there been so much talk of feuds and rivalries as there has been in the 2010 NASCAR season.
The Gillette Fusion 500 at the Pocono Raceway provided very little excitement in its first 150 laps but the final stages […]

160 laps of boredom followed by 40 laps of terror

Sunday, June 6th, 2010

By Richard Allen
If a person had left the grandstand or tuned the television away from the Gillette Fusion 500 after 150 laps or so they would have thought they had just witnessed one of the most boring races in NASCAR history. I suspect many people did leave or tune away. And, they would have been […]

Pocono exemplifies trouble with modern day NASCAR

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

By Richard Allen
This weekend the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will head to the mountains of eastern Pennsylvania for the Gillette Fusion 500 at the Pocono Raceway. It used to be that a NASCAR trip to Pocono gave fans and competitors alike the chance to experience something different and intriguing. Now, this is just another race […]

My prediction: Denny Hamlin will win in Pocono

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

By Richard Allen
The Pocono Raceway has to be one of the trickiest tracks for drivers and teams to get a grip on. There are three turns, each of which is very much unique in banking and radius. Also, there are three straights, each of which with its own length.
With that said, it is advisable to […]

Kyle Busch may be glad to leave the controversy of Charlotte behind but…

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

By Richard Allen
To say that Kyle Busch found himself at the eye of the storm in Charlotte over the course of the last two weeks would be a bit of an understatement. Even for this driver who rarely runs away from controversy, this was an eventful fortnight.
As has been well documented, Busch and Joe Gibbs […]
