Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

By Richard Allen

After Jeff Gordon walked for what seemed to be quite some distance then engaged in a brief scuffle and shouting match with Jeff Burton there were some on twitter, Facebook and even the ESPN television broadcast who expressed surprise at the four time champion’s bold move.
Why?
Despite many of his detractors characterization of him […]

Did we just witness the 48 team buckling under pressure?

Monday, November 8th, 2010

By Richard Allen
Never mind the scuffle between Jeff Gordon and Jeff Burton on the backstretch of the Texas Motor Speedway this past Sunday, the moment of the race occurred just after that. I was amused and entertained at the sight of two of the sport’s most recognizable names engaged in an altercation after they had […]

Races like that will cause people to start watching NASCAR again

To be honest, many of this season’s NASCAR Sprint Cup races have left me feeling a bit blah after the event concluded. So many times this year the races have turned out to be somewhat lifeless affairs with few storylines beyond the usual long stretches of boredom followed by a contrived finish.

In April of 2002 NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick was suspended from a Sprint Cup Series race in Martinsville, Virginia for actions that occurred in a truck race on that same track the day before.

With less than ten laps remaining in the event the #09 […]

This is what NASCAR has always wanted except…

In 2003, Matt Kenseth did the least exciting thing a NASCAR driver could do, at least in the eyes of the sanctioning body and the television networks. Although he won only one race that season he consistently gritted his way through the Sprint Cup(then Winston Cup) schedule and won the championship by a […]

Earnhardt-Ganassi move to Ford seems far fetched

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

By Richard Allen
 
The rumor mill has swirled around Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing for the last few days. Published stories say that the team is being courted by Ford Motor Company in an attempt to entice them to switch their allegiance to that brand in 2011. Supposedly, Ford has put up good money to make this deal happen.
In […]

Does Junior Nation keep other drivers from speaking their minds?

Monday, November 1st, 2010

By Richard Allen
Sometimes NASCAR drivers can be pretty outspoken. But other times they have been trained well enough not to say anything that might be considered even slightly controversial or inflammatory.
Was this the case after Sunday’s Amp Energy Juice 500 at the Talladega Super Speedway?
In 2008, Carl Edwards bumped Greg Biffle on his back bumper […]
