Last fall marked the announcement of the NASCAR Cup Series’ 2021 return to dirt in after many, many decades away. And I didn’t know how to feel. Which was weird.

Does the NASCAR Cup Series schedule feature too many road courses? What is the ideal number? Luken Glover: Yes.

Should commentators be involved with racing teams in the series they cover? We just can’t have nice things, apparently. Steve Letarte, a former race-winning crew chief for Hendrick Motorsports, took a job this offseason as a consultant for Spire Motorsports. This might be just a little bit of a problem, because Letarte is also a …

Cory Roper.

If you have paid much attention during NASCAR Cup Series broadcasts this season, odds are good that you have seen the “Best Season Ever” ad campaign by Fox Sports, a brilliant messaging plan by all accounts.
