NASCAR recently completed what we can only hope was a very important test at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. The session was designed to provide the sanctioning body with information that could lead to changes in the Gen6 car currently being used in the sport.
Hopefully, something will come from said test that will lead to more passing and less […]

Junior and Childress favor the return of the No. 3, so what’s the problem?

By Richard Allen
Maybe I’m just not very sentimental or something, but I’ve never understood all the fuss about retiring the jersey numbers of athletes.

By Richard Allen
Chase Elliott won the Snowball Derby at the Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Fla. on Sunday… or so it seemed. During post-race technical inspection, the second generation driver’s car was found to be illegal and he was striped of the victory in the prestigious short track event.

By Richard Allen
I want to start off this piece by stating that I am a big fan of the NASCAR Hall of Fame. When it was built, it had been long overdue. But now that it is here, the HoF serves the great purpose of honoring those who have made outstanding contributions to the sport.

On Thanksgiving night, Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was taking a stroll along the sideline, or actually just off the sideline and onto the playing field, at the very same moment a Baltimore Ravens player was in the process of returning a kick for what appeared to be a certain touchdown. However, the […]
