I've had three days to process the events of Thunder Valley this past Monday and I must ask if the race was honestly as great as everyone is saying.
Every year on the weekend before the Coca-Cola 600, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series gathers at Charlotte Motor Speedway to run the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race.
Alright NASCAR, you've peaked the interest of this skeptic and I'm curious to see where these new "enhancements" lead us this season and beyond.
"The white zone is for immediate loading and unloading..." and I need to unload my thoughts on the idea of a relegation-esque system for the charters.
Welcome back to this special edition of The White Zone. Today, I conclude my countdown of the most disappointing races of the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season.
The point I'm driving at here is that the race track is a dangerous place and you must have constant awareness of your surroundings. If you don't, you're going to get yourself injured or killed. If fans continue to not pay attention, NASCAR will start coming down harder on you and make hot passes harder to get.
BRISTOL, Tenn. -- One term I've heard used by those attending the Short Track Nationals at Bristol Motor Speedway this past weekend has been "Corporate NASCAR," meaning NASCAR's desires to grow the sport has made it lose touch with the interests and desires of its core fans. After watching yet another lackluster All-Star Race that was overhyped by both NASCAR and Charlotte Motor Speedway, I believe there's truth to that "Corporate NASCAR" label.
"The white zone is for immediate loading and unloading..." and I need to make it clear that restrictor plate racing isn't going away. As usual, yesterday's GEICO 500 was quite the show of excitement and carnage. We saw cars upside down and a whole gaggle of cars caught up in one wreck, 37 lead changes among 17 different drivers and mayhem coming to the finish line.
Before we turn our focus to Atlanta Motor Speedway and beyond, here's some thoughts I had on Sunday's Daytona 500.
Welcome back to this special edition of The White Zone. We're nearing the end of the countdown as today's edition will unveil picks four, three and two for the 10 best races of the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season.
