Are you tired of us old guys telling you how much better NASCAR was back in the day? Thankfully, I will spare you that argument because while I often miss some of the old days, I don’t miss hearing about drivers getting hurt or killed as often as they did back in the day. Join …

Oftentimes, NASCAR gets the short end of the deal — faces a lot of criticism, but they deserve a tip of the old Frontstretch hat for managing to get a full season in during trying times. No other major American sport was able to accomplish this feat. There is no hiding the fact that I’m …

2020 Kansas II Cup Joey Logano celebrates NKP

The 2020 NASCAR Cup Series season has been a weird one for Joey Logano. He managed to win two of the first four races this season, but those were also his only top-10 finishes, too. Sliced Bread has been either very good or very average all season.  As he often does, Logano managed to irritate …

2020 CharlotteROVAL NCS Chase Elliott Face NKP

Last week, King Richard Petty caused a bit of a ruckus calling dirt racing “unprofessional.” Do you know what is really unprofessional? Having turn 1 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL contribute to the outcome of the NASCAR playoffs. Speaking of unprofessional, how about racing on a wet track not because of rain but because …

You can’t win the clichés during the fourth race of the 10-race playoff schedule, but you can sure lose the cliché battle at Talladega Superspeedway. Unfortunately, drivers pushed the rules envelope on Sunday (Oct. 4), causing NASCAR to actually make a ruling on their beloved “Yellow Line Rule.” For those new to NASCAR, a driver …

2020 Las Vegas NCS Kevin Harvick Championship NKP

In Las Vegas, some times it’s better to be lucky than good at the games of chance. On Sunday night (Sept. 27), Kurt Busch hit the jackpot when a caution flew during a cycle of green flag pit stops. That timely caution helped one of Vegas’ own win, but it was an impressive finish that …

2020 Bristol NCS Kevin Harvick Racing NKP

Bristol Motor Speedway is considering importing dirt? If this isn’t an indictment of the current template for NASCAR as it applies to short track racing, I am not sure what else it would be. Since Speedway Motorsports Inc., has decided to add traction compound at the bottom of this track, the racing has gotten much …

They used to call Richmond Raceway the “Action Track,” but after racing 400 laps without a non-manufactured caution flag, they might need to forget that nickname ever existed. This isn’t the fault of the track. This isn’t the fault of the drivers. This is the fault of a rules package that makes a gentle rub …

All season, Kevin Harvick has been very good. Heading into the Southern 500, he had won seven times already this year and had more top-five and top-10 finishes than anyone else. But one thing he has not been until Sunday (Sept. 6) was being lucky! In one of the crown jewels of stock car racing, …

Power Rankings: Here Come the Playoffs Edition

It’s amazing how much has changed in all the many years since I started following NASCAR as a kid back in the late 1960s and ’70s. Thankfully, the racing is much safer. Can I hear a “Hallelujah” that we get live races every week? But one curious development is that back in the day, finishing …
