1. Can Tony Stewart Go Back-to-Back?

Rare is it for a driver to break a huge winless streak, and even rarer is it for the streak to be broken by a driver over 40. You see, as drivers age their production tends to decrease and by the time they retire, they are running as a ghost of their past self, putting …

Garrison Hearst. Dorsey Levens. Daunte Culpepper. Michael Vick. Troy Polamalu. No, these aren’t obscure drivers from NASCAR’s past. They’re all football players, one-time superstars of the NFL who were chosen at one point to be the cover athlete of EA Sports’ Madden video game franchise. And they all saw their careers go south following the honor. …

Trivia time: who won the ninth XFINITY race for Joe Gibbs Racing in 2016? No, it’s not Kyle Busch. Not Erik Jones. No to Denny Hamlin and it wasn’t Daniel Suarez. How about the one-off, hasn’t-raced-since-November Sam Hornish Jr.? That’s the one. Hornish went out and dominated the field in Iowa last Sunday, leading 183 …

Chase Elliott racked up yet another top 5 on this past Sunday. That’s a statement you’d expect to hear about Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch or Joey Logano. Perhaps Martin Truex Jr. even. But a rookie like Elliott? Not even the most bullish Hendrick Motorsports fan would have expected to say that this early in the season. After …

Want to win the Sprint Cup championship this season? Don’t win this weekend at Michigan. That’s right – don’t win. Super counterintuitive, I know. Today’s NASCAR is all about winning. Win to make the Chase. Win to appease sponsors. Win to advance in the Chase. And win to take home the title. Winning is great, …

2-Headed Monster: Has Joe Gibbs Racing Lost Its Stranglehold on Victory Lane?

2016 Dover I CUP Carl Edwards Matt Kenseth racing Nigel Kinrade NKP

Thirty-four laps. That’s all that Toyota led during last weekend’s Axalta “We Paint Winners” 400 at Pocono Raceway – out of 160 – and for a manufacturer that has led over half of the laps run this season, it seemed a little out of place.  Even more interesting is that all 34 of those laps …
