Best of Tommy Thompson: All Is Well Over At Richard Childress Racing

Not much more than a year ago, the state of wellness at Richard Childress Racing (RCR) had become a legitimate concern. The Cup teams were languishing in points and its premier driver, Kevin Harvick, was rumored to be ready to flee the organization. Richard Childress, despite being a six-time owners’ champion, was a man who had seemed to have his best days behind him in as much as being a competitive NASCAR team owner was concerned.

NASCAR Community Reacts to the Passing of Benny Parsons

“Benny Parsons is not only the person I owe my NASCAR career to but he was a true friend to me from the day we met. I will always appreciate his friendship and what he did for me.

Anytime a driver with a reputation for racing clean says that he did not make contact intentionally with another car, that driver’s explanation should be taken at face value considering his established history. And make no mistake; Earnhardt Jr. is one of the “clean drivers” in the sport.

Fontana, Calif. – With the possibility of her job on the line, 37-year-old California Speedway president Gillian Zucker is poised to take drastic measures in an effort to sell out the Fontana Speedway as soon as possible.

Best of Bowles-Eye View: Paul Dana’s Death Cruel Reminder For NASCAR Family

Truth be told, Paul Dana was not a household name in motorsports; at least, not yet. Putting aside his former career as a journalist to pursue his dream, the 30-year-old was preparing for just his first full season on the IRL circuit, quietly landing a deal with one of the best teams in Rahal Letterman Motorsports. He’d be teammates with budding superstar Danica Patrick and Indy 500 winner Buddy Rice, even with a resume of just three previous IRL starts.
