Early troubles strike Junior and the Busch brothers among others in Kentucky

Sunday, June 30th, 2013

By Richard Allen
The Quaker State 400 at the Kentucky Speedway was rain delayed from Saturday night until Sunday afternoon. But the track and the fans weren’t the only ones who suffered as a result. Perhaps it was the switch from a night race to a day race that changed the mentality of the drivers or […]

Jimmie Johnson’s “luck” doesn’t hold out in Kentucky

Sunday, June 30th, 2013

 
By Richard Allen
There’s an old saying that declares, “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” There’s another old saying that declares, “Jimmie Johnson has a golden horseshoe stuck up his ass.” On Sunday in the Quaker State 400 at the Kentucky Speedway, it appeared as if the second of those two sayings would hold true […]

Sonoma provided some elation, some frustration and even a little WTH?

Sunday, June 23rd, 2013

 
By Richard Allen
At one time, I used to dislike road course racing in NASCAR. I was an oval track snob and thought those types of tracks had no place in a stock car series. Then, the words ‘aero-tight’ and ‘cookie cutter’ became part of the racing vernacular and my mind was changed regarding the courses that […]

It seems as if most rivals in the Sprint Cup garage don’t like Hendrick Motorsports very much

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

By Richard Allen
There were several things that happened during this past weekend at the Michigan International Speedway. But one of the things that received a great deal of attention was some rather high profile remarks made against Hendrick Motorsports by their chief rivals. It seems as if those who have to compete against NASCAR’s most […]

A Vanilla Driver Won A Vanilla Race in Pocono

Sunday, June 9th, 2013

 
By Richard Allen
Jimmie Johnson is often reffered to as a vanilla driver for his ability to always say the right things. In other words, he has a tendency to be somewhat bland and boring. That, in turn, brings about the referrence to the somewhat lifeless flavoring.
On Sunday at the Pocono Raceway, Johnson dominated a race […]

Discussion Topic: What did you think of Fox’s 2013 NASCAR coverage?

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

 
By Richard Allen
I have been blessed with great readers on this website who are always willing to let their opinions be known. And to that end, I have decided to have a discussion topic or two per week for just that purpose. Unlike many of the columns and articles I write in which I typically only […]

The text Brad Keselowski didn’t want to send

Monday, June 3rd, 2013

By Richard Allen
We all know that Brad Keselowski loves to use his cell phone as a communication device. However, there is one text he probably didn’t want to send after his car failed post-race inspection in Dover this past Sunday. Here is that text:

WTH is going on at TRD?

Monday, June 3rd, 2013

 
By Richard Allen
To hear fans, media and other competitors tell it, Toyota is spending enormous amounts of cash to put themselves in position to dominate NASCAR. That may very well be true, but in at least one aspect of their program, the Japanese auto giant is not getting their moneys worth.
For yet another time in […]

Wreck combined with Stewart’s win equaled worst case scenario for Hamlin

Monday, June 3rd, 2013

 
By Richard Allen
Things started off great for Denny Hamlin this past weekend at the Dover International Speedway. The driver who just recently came back from a serious injury earned the pole position for the FedEx 400 and bolted to the early lead on the high banked oval. However, things did not end nearly so well […]
