Hot 20 – There are a lot of nice things to do in Phoenix, but winning Sunday would be the nicest
I like being nice. Sure, I can bitch with the best of them, but it is nice when one can say nice things about someone. For instance, I think NASCAR did the right thing by calling the race at Texas last week. Let me see, the race was already delayed by five hours and the skies really opened up with 40 to go. Damn right they should have wrapped things up when they did. [..]
Hot 20 – Texas is next, where men are men and women are damned happy about it
Hot 20 – NASCAR’s Cup Drivers Runneth over to Swamp the XFINITY and Camping World Series
Hot 20 – Sunday at Talladega, one of NASCAR’s few must see events
On Sunday, we will have one of those races, on one of those tracks, that provides must-see action. While we have no announcers covering NASCAR today who you might tune in just to hear their description of the action, to hear them enhance the excitement, even those we got can not detract from the spectacle we shall witness on Sunday. [..]
Hot 20 – Here is hoping for a little Sunday excitement in Kansas…or a bottle of wine in my fridge.
Hot 20 – Thank God for the Chase, as a dozen contenders and the also-rans return to Charlotte
Sixteen started the Chase with some hope. That is now down to 12 as they pull into Charlotte. If we relied strictly on the season tally to award the trophy, it would already be down to Brad Keselowski and Kevin Harvick. Just two points would be separating them. Both could have sat out Saturday night’s race and still have been one-two in the standings come Monday. Hence, the Chase. [..]
Hot 20 – Dover seats nearly 30,000 fewer fans and now NASCAR wants to reduce the pit crews
I hate change. Even good change can take a while to be appreciated. I did not like the Chase when it came out. I do now. I am still perturbed brand names like Firecracker 400 and World 600 were kicked to the curb to make a sponsor happy who obviously had no appreciation for the traditions of the sport. Then again, neither does NASCAR. [..]
Hot 20 – As they head to Loudon, a half-billion dollar lawsuit leaves me very confused
Hot 20 – Mr. Hamlin, what races do you suggest we remove, reduce, or reschedule?
