Losing Kyle Busch would be bad for NASCAR

Monday, November 7th, 2011

By Richard Allen
 
Through the years I have written as many pieces as anyone condemning some action or another of Kyle Busch. A guitar smashing incident and a 128mph speeding ticket are two things that come readily to mind. And there is no doubt that his most recent act of controversy is one worthy of condemnation […]

With the news released on Wednesday morning that former NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield had been arrested on charges of possession of illegal drugs and stolen property, another chapter in one of the strangest stories in recent racing history was set to be written. Perhaps this will even be the final chapter in this […]

Unemployment on the rise among Sprint Cup drivers and crew members

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

By Richard Allen
With a wave of recent announcements from various teams, it appears as though there will be a significant rise in the unemployment rate of NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers. These announcements are coming not only from smaller and less successful teams but also from the behemoth mega-teams who have proven race winning records.

High speeds of Texas mean it’s time to forget revenge

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

By Richard Allen

For those who […]

Busch brothers out of title contention barring a miracle

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

By Richard Allen
After Sunday’s race in Martinsville a former NASCAR Sprint Cup champion and one perennial contender were essentially eliminated from contention for the title. And these two virtual eliminations impacted the same family as brothers Kurt and Kyle Busch are now so far back that there is little chance of making up the necessary […]
