Brian France and Russet Potatoes Headline BSNews

As long time readers of this column know, this space is sometimes given over to a fictional entity that I lovingly call BSNews. BSNews is just what its name implies, pure BS. It is a satirical take on the often absurd world of NASCAR. Normally, if the world hadn't gone completely mad sometime last week, the following topics would be ideal fodder for the fictional reporters at BSNews. Unfortunately, what you are about to read is absolutely, completely, utterly, cross my heart TRUE. It is no BS, even though that will be the first thought that crosses your mind as you read it.

Scanner Static: No Denying Jimmie Johnson Now

*Q: When are you media types going to give Johnson his due? He's raced a great Chase, and he'll be the next Nextel Cup champion after Sunday. I can't get over the hatred for what he does and who he is. Oh wait, I get it - he's Jeff Gordon's buddy. No wonder you hate his guts.* _Cassie 48_ *A:* I don't "hate" him or anyone out there, but I'll reiterate what I said at the very beginning of this thing: Because of Johnson's previous late-season fades, he'll have to prove to me he can do it before I'll ever pick him to do it.

Homestead: 2006 Championship Possibilities Abound

At the risk of stating the obvious to the knowledgeable racing fans that visit the pages of Frontstretch.com, let me say that there is never anything for sure in auto racing : the outcome must always be considered in doubt until the checkered flag falls at the end of that final lap. With that in mind, anyone that chooses not to watch the season-ending and championship-determining race this Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway, I've just got one thing to tell you : you may be bitterly disappointed.

Mirror Driving: Roush Dragging Kenseth Down? Yates Dragging Himself Down?

*Did the series of shakeups at Roush Racing the last two months cost Matt Kenseth his shot at the title?* Amy: No, I don't think so...running mediocre at best on the intermediate tracks cost them. It might have been a distraction, but that team has overcome distractions before. Mike: Well, it certainly didn't help, Amy.

Wondering…Wandering: Part I

It's been said that "the mind is a beautiful thing." Whoever coined that phrase never took a stroll through my mind when it starts wandering, though. Beautiful would hardly describe the thoughts that muddle my, for the most part, lucid thought process. I am constantly purging my brain of this ridiculous (or is it?) NASCAR refuse, and I am more than willing to share it with you, the reader.
