Biffle, Stewart, Kenseth and Bowyer: Thanks for playing but you’ve been eliminated

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

 
 
By Richard Allen
 
That deep sounding noise that is often heard when a contestant loses on a game show could have also been heard in the garage spaces of Greg Biffle, Tony Stewart, Matt Kenseth and Clint Bowyer after the AAA 400 in Dover this past weekend. Essentially, these four drivers have been eliminated from championship […]

Not exactly a shocking development that the Bowyer appeal was denied

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

 
By Richard Allen
On Wednesday, the National Stock Car Racing Commission denied the appeal of the Richard Childress Racing #33 team relative to the infractions on their car following the Sylvania 300 at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Driver Clint Bowyer won that race but the car’s body was found out of compliance during an intensive […]

He’s back…Johnson powers into Chase contention

Sunday, September 26th, 2010

 
 
By Richard Allen
 
As if anyone truly believed that Jimmie Johnson was out of contention for a fifth consecutive Sprint Cup championship after his poor finish in New Hampshire, he let it be known this past weekend that he will definitely be a factor again in 2010.
In what could only be labeled as a dominating performance […]

Feuding drivers may leave Johnson laughing all the way to the bank

Sunday, September 26th, 2010

 
 
By Richard Allen
 
Jimmie Johnson’s attempt to win a fifth consecutive NASCAR Sprint Cup title did not get off to the start he would have hoped for last week at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway when a late race incident and loose wheel left him in the 25th position at the drop of the checkered flag.
However, […]

Bowyer case gives rise to multiple conspiracy theories

Saturday, September 25th, 2010

 
 
By Richard Allen
 
Not even the John Kennedy assassination can stir up conspiracy theories like NASCAR. Earlier this week, the Richard Childress Racing team of driver Clint Bowyer was hammered with one of the harshest penalties the sanctioning body has ever handed down. Immediately, folks started to offer reasons as to why the penalty was so […]

Bowyer team either arrogant or foolish

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

 
 
By Richard Allen
 
The #33 Richard Childress Racing team has been nailed with one of the biggest penalties NASCAR has ever handed down. Crew chief Shane Wilson has been fined $150,000 as well as sent to the sport’s version of a timeout chair for six weeks. Car chief Chad Haney was also suspended for six weeks. […]

Stewart’s gamble should be applauded rather than condemned

Monday, September 20th, 2010

By Richard Allen
There is too much points racing and settling for decent finishes in NASCAR today. Too many times we hear that drivers are pleased with a 5th place even though a particular driver may have had a car capable of winning.
There were caution periods after Tony Stewart last pitted in the Sylvania 300 at […]

The New Hampshire race was what NASCAR had envisioned

Monday, September 20th, 2010

By Richard Allen
Last week, I wrote a piece in which I said that the race in Richmond was probably not the event NASCAR had hoped for going into the time in which the sport would be competing head to head with the National Football League for television ratings. Although there was nothing really wrong with […]

McMurray, Earnhardt spoil Chase party with top-5 runs

Sunday, September 19th, 2010

By Richard Allen
 
The word spoiler has been used often this year in NASCAR. For the most part, the word has described a piece attached to the rear of a Sprint Cup car. However, now that the Chase for the Championship has begun, the word may be better used to describe those drivers outside the top-12 […]

Harvick blasts crew then scores top-5 finish

Sunday, September 19th, 2010

By Richard Allen
Frustrated. Angry. Impatient. Those are all words that would describe Kevin Harvick’s mood during the first two-thirds of the Sylvania 300 at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Sunday. Time after time the Bakersfield, California driver admonished his crew for any number of errors he believed they had committed.
During an early race caution, […]

After the NHMS truck race is there anyone left who disagrees that Kyle Busch is the most talented driver in NASCAR?

Saturday, September 18th, 2010

 
 
By Richard Allen
 
I want to start this column by saying that I am not a Kyle Busch fan. However, I cannot deny that the Las Vegas native is the most talented driver in NASCAR today. I am not saying the most talented of all time, but I am saying most talented right now.
After watching TheRaceDayRaffleSeries.com […]

Non-Chasers look to play championship role after NHMS qualifying

Saturday, September 18th, 2010

 
 
By Richard Allen
 
The Sylvania 300 at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway is the first race in the 2010 Chase for the Sprint Cup, so naturally, most of the attention by the media and everyone else is heaped upon those twelve drivers seeking the championship. One problem with that during Friday afternoon’s qualifying session was that […]
