Reutimann’s win was good for NASCAR in many ways

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

By Richard Allen
David Reutimann won the LifeLock.com 400 in Chicago and that was a good thing. In many ways, this victory showed that good things can still happen in NASCAR. He won the rain shortened Coca-Cola 600 in Charlotte last year. This, however, was his first Sprint Cup win at a full race distance.
Reutimann showed […]

This is not really the start of the second half of the NASCAR season

Friday, July 9th, 2010

By Richard Allen
Do not be fooled by what mathematics may lead you to believe. There are 36 races on the NASCAR Sprint Cup schedule. This is race number 19 so it should seem obvious that the teams, drivers and all others involved are entering the second half of the season. However, that is not necessarily […]

My prediction: Tony Stewart will win in Chicago

Friday, July 9th, 2010

By Richard Allen
As has often been said here and other places, this is the time of year in which Tony Stewart comes to life. The summer heat makes tracks hot and slick and that is exactly the type of surface a driver with extensive experience on dirt should do well on. Stewart has extensive experience […]

By Richard Allen
When I first heard that Dale Earnhardt, Jr. was going to drive a number 3 car sponsored by Wrangler in the Nationwide Series race in Daytona I thought it was nothing more than a gimmick to sell a few die casts and t-shirts. Of course, that number and sponsor were used by Junior’s […]

My prediction: Juan Pablo Montoya will win the Coke Zero 400

Friday, July 2nd, 2010

By Richard Allen
There have been two restrictor plate races so far in 2010 and the two winners have had one thing in common. Both were driving cars powered by Earnhardt Childress Racing engines. Jamie McMurray won the Daytona 500 while Kevin Harvick scored a win in Talladega using the power plants.
Last week, I picked Denny […]

It was a bad day for Kyle Busch…and those around him

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

By Richard Allen
Kasey Kahne, David Ragan, Denny Hamlin, Robert Richardson, Jr., Tony Stewart and Reed Sorenson all suffered damage during the Thursday practice sessions for the Coke Zero 400 at the Daytona International Speedway. There was one constant in the two separate incidents that will force some, if not all, of these drivers to backup […]
