Discussion Topic: Where does NASCAR rank among your favorite sports?

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

By Richard Allen
Over the past few days, it has been somewhat of a sports fan’s paradise. There have been World Series games, the NFL, college football and NASCAR among other things on television. The choices have been so plenteous that many fans have no doubt had to make some tough decisions as well as keep […]

Monday, October 28th, 2013

By Richard Allen
The 2013 Sprint Cup season is very near to taking the checkered flag and heading to the garage area. So, it’s time for evaluations to begin for those who have been taking part in all the fun and festivities this year. No doubt, every NASCAR team is in the process of grading itself […]

Harvick doesn’t like RCR teammates so he’s opting for Stewart, Danica and Busch instead

Sunday, October 27th, 2013

 By Richard Allen
In case you haven’t heard, Kevin Harvick and Ty Dillon didn’t play well together during the Camping World Truck Series race at the Martinsville Speedway on Saturday. Trouble is, the two drivers both race under the umbrella of Richard Childress Racing in one capacity or another…at least for a few more weeks.
On lap 189 […]

Ten quotes drivers might use to describe Martinsville

Saturday, October 26th, 2013

By Richard Allen
A few years ago, Matt Kenseth really did say that, “Driving at Martinsville is like racing around to light poles in the WalMart parking lot.” So with that in mind, here are some made up quotes drivers might want to use about the half-mile track in Virginia.

Did ABC/ESPN choose the NBA over NASCAR?

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

 By Richard Allen
Colin Cowherd is one of the best sports talk radio personalities in the business. This is so because he has an amazing ability to stir his listeners with what initially seem to be outlandish statements but then back those comments with(at least his perception of) the facts.
On Thursday morning, the ESPN Radio host went on a […]

I missed NASCAR this past weekend…but not really

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013

By Richard Allen
This past weekend, I missed the Sprint Cup race from Talladega…on purpose. As a matter of fact, I didn’t watch last Saturday’s event from Charlotte either. And these weren’t the first instances this year in which I had failed to watch a NASCAR race.
Had someone suggested ten or twenty years ago that I would miss a NASCAR […]

Junior can’t really be considered a restrictor plate track favorite anymore

Sunday, October 20th, 2013

By Richard Allen
At one time, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. was, without question, THE favorite every time the Sprint Cup Series found itself on the restrictor plate tracks in Talladega and Daytona. For a short time, he was indeed the master of those domains.
Junior collected five wins over a span of only seven races at Talladega between 2001 and […]

Time to make real changes at the Talladega Super Speedway

Saturday, October 19th, 2013

By Richard Allen
I only saw the final four laps of Saturday’s Camping World Truck Series race from the Talladega Super Speedway. That was enough.
The three-and-a-half  laps leading up to the finish provided some great racing as three pairs of trucks raced in three-wide formation while they toured around the high-banked 2.66 mile track. Unfortunately, the […]

Wonder if Keselowski will get a “Don’t mess with the Chase” lecture from NASCAR?

Saturday, October 5th, 2013

By Richard Allen
On lap 189 of the Kansas Lottery 300 Nationwide Series race on Saturday, an event filled with multiple caution flags but no real storylines suddenly provided some headline material. And that attention getting material has the potential to impact the most sacred of all NASCAR entities, the Chase for the Sprint Cup.
It was at […]
