Couch Potato Tuesday: Scheduling Kansas on a Thursday Night? Not the Best Idea

(Photo: Nigel Kinrade Photography)

Last week was a rather odd setup. The NASCAR Cup Series raced Thursday night at Kansas Speedway. This setup was concocted to avoid Championship Sunday for the Premier League, but I think the whole thing was misguided. Those Championship Sunday games were over by 1 p.m. ET (and five of the 10 were exclusive to … Read more

Couch Potato Tuesday: NBC Brings New Innovations, Decent Coverage to Texas

Last weekend was ridiculous. Too much action at one time. For instance, I originally planned to have a recap of Sunday’s 4 Hours of Le Castellet, the season opener for the European Le Mans Series, here on Frontstretch. I still haven’t seen that race yet. The schedule was just crushing with Cup, Xfinity, the Trucks, … Read more

Couch Potato Tuesday: Kentucky Action Substandard Until Lap 265

Guess what? We made it through a NASCAR Cup Series race for the first time in a month without a weather delay. Makes me happy. However, what we ended up with was a very idiosyncratic race. The Quaker State 400 Sponsored By Walmart will likely always be remembered for the final two laps. Cole Custer … Read more

Couch Potato Tuesday: NBC Returns, Along With Tire Issues at Indianapolis; RaceHub Reacts to Trump Tweet

Oh boy, here we go again. Five races in a row with weather delays. Jeepers. Last week, NASCAR and INDYCAR held a tripleheader weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Saturday seemed to go off without a hitch. Sunday brought lightning delays, tire issues and some dangerous stuff in the pits, though A lot was outside … Read more

Couch Potato Tuesday: FOX Goes for 2 in Pocono, Gets Exhausted

Oh man! If I had the ability to prevent rain delays, this season would be so much less exhausting. After Sunday’s Pocono 350, I noted that covering Sunday’s tripleheader was more tiring than covering Petit Le Mans on-site. Having covered that event for the last four years, I can tell you that (for me), it … Read more

Couch Potato Tuesday: FOX, NASCAR Come Face-to-Face With a Social Crisis

(Photo: Nigel Kinrade Photography)

Last weekend was … something else. NASCAR found itself in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Thankfully, the noose in the garage was found not to have been intentionally planted there for intimidation purposes. That said, it was there. I checked my photos from last October in Talladega to see if I noticed anything. … Read more

Couch Potato Tuesday: Lightning Results in a Floridian Marathon

Unfortunately, with the schedule we have for 2020, weather is going to be an issue this season. We have a bunch of daytime races scheduled to be held in the southeast United States in the middle of the summer. Days like we saw Sunday could happen a few more times, but we can’t do much … Read more

Couch Potato Tuesday: NASCAR Stands Up for Racial Equality on FOX

(Photo: NASCAR Media/Getty Images)

As all of you are aware, it’s been a rather tough couple of weeks here in the United States. In addition to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the country has been rocked by protests against police brutality and racism. NASCAR has generally stayed away from these issues in the past, largely due to the fact that … Read more

Couch Potato Tuesday: Charlotte, Bristol Bring Interesting Racing on FOX Sports 1

Given the schedule of the past week, we ended up with two NASCAR Cup Series races in three days. As a result, we have a rare twin-bill of Cup critiques this week. Let’s hope that this does not become a trend. ALSCO Uniforms 500k The past couple of weeks have been exhausting for NASCAR teams. … Read more

Couch Potato Tuesday: Charlotte Light on Action, Decent on Coverage

(Photo: NASCAR Media/Getty Images)

Charlotte Motor Speedway is normally a hive of activity on Memorial Day weekend, owing to its location just outside of Mecklenburg County (the track is just over the county line in Cabarrus County and reasonably close to a lot of shopping).  Sunday was not a normal day. In front of an audience of a couple … Read more
