How can Trevor Bayne’s car be unsponsored…at Bristol?

Friday, March 18th, 2011

By Richard Allen
 
Trevor Bayne is young, nice looking, personable and a local hero when he races at Bristol. And. oh yeah, he won the Daytona 500 earlier this year. So, why in the world is he driving a plain, white car in the Nationwide Series race on the track no more than two hours away […]

Fantasy picks and race winner for the Jeff Byrd 500 at Bristol

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

By Richard Allen
I play the ESPN Stock Car Challenge fantasy game. It is free and very easy to understand. There are no drafts. Points are amassed based on the NASCAR scoring system. Fantasy players have a budget of $100 per race and each driver is given a value based on his prior performance. Players choose […]

Bayne and Woods could make for a good combination in Bristol

Monday, March 14th, 2011

By Richard Allen
When Trevor Bayne won the Daytona 500 for Wood Brothers Racing in February it was the first victory for that legendary team since 2001. Their last visit to the winner’s circle had come in the spring race at the Bristol Motor Speedway when Elliott Sadler scored his first career triumph.
This Sunday, the Woods […]

Can a confident Junior finally live up to expectations?

Sunday, March 13th, 2011

By Richard Allen
 
The NASCAR Sprint Cup season is only three races old. So to make a judgment about any driver or team would be, to at least some degree, out of line. That is true about those at the bottom of the standings as well as those at the top.
However, the first three races do […]

Open weekend comes at a bad time for NASCAR

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

By Richard Allen
 
Next season there will not be an early weekend off due to the fact that the Daytona 500 will be pushed back by one week. However, over the past few seasons there has been an opening in the schedule around this time of year. Unfortunately for NASCAR, this particular open weekend comes at […]

Kevin Conway statement has not helped his standing among NASCAR insiders

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011

By Richard Allen
This past Friday Robby Gordon allegedly attacked Kevin Conway in the ‘Neon Garage’ at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. According to reports seen in various areas, Gordon supposedly confronted Conway and soon afterwards the situation turned physical.
In that regard, Conway issued the following statement: “I don’t mind stiff competition, but I want to […]

Kenseth being added to a number of enemy lists

Sunday, March 6th, 2011

By Richard Allen
 
Matt Kenseth exhibits what seems to be one of the calmest and most mild mannered demeanors of any driver in NASCAR. But don’t be fooled. The Wisconsin native is one of the hardest driving wheel men on the track. And whenever a driver races hard, he is bound to run afoul of his […]

Too many races won in the pits rather than on track on cookie cutters

Sunday, March 6th, 2011

By Richard Allen
 
NASCAR went into Las Vegas with a number of feel good stories having been written during the first two weeks of the season. And to an extent, that continued this weekend. Mark Martin winning and Danica Patrick finishing in the top-5 of the Nationwide race certainly offered the potential for more positivism. A […]

Gas prices threaten to spoil NASCAR’s solid start

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

By Richard Allen
 
As mentioned here(http://racingwithrich.com/?p=1379 ) NASCAR’s 2011 season has gotten off to a great start. Trevor Bayne’s Daytona 500 win and Jeff Gordon’s victory in Phoenix have the sport looking like a recovery of attendance and television ratings could be in the offing this season. However, there is one major issue on the horizon […]

NASCAR riding the crest of a wave of feel good stories

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

By Richard Allen
 
NASCAR could have hardly scripted a better start to the 2011 season if they had tried(and remember, they have been accused of such things recently). At just about every turn there has been a wave of good feelings for the racing organization.
In Daytona, the track’s new pavement made for fast speeds and an […]

Busch brothers leading the way to their hometown

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

By Richard Allen
Going into this weekend’s NASCAR stop off in Las Vegas two natives of that town are leading the Sprint Cup standings. Brothers Kyle and Kurt Busch are 1st and 2nd in the standings after each has posted one top-5 and two top-10s in the first two events thus far in 2011.
Kurt began the […]
