Fantasy Insider: Bet High on 2 Hit or Miss Drivers in Atlanta

Welcome back, one and all, to Frontstretch’s Fantasy Insider. With the final off-week of the season behind us, it’s time to look ahead to Sunday night’s race in Atlanta, the highlight of Labor Day weekend – and the track where they used to give out the coolest trophy in auto racing to the winner of the Bass Pro Shops 500.

Frontstretch NASCAR Power Rankings: Top 15 After the 2010 Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol

The new Bristol provided a lot of excitement over the weekend, but the traditional bump-and-run found itself replaced by another classic maneuver: the slide job. When done correctly, Kyle Busch used it as a weapon towards an unprecedented three-race sweep; when done wrong, it led to a bump and spin on Friday night during the …

Fantasy Insider: Carl Edwards, Greg Biffle Have History & Momentum Heading to Bristol

Ah, the Bristol night race is upon us. And while the Chase format has watered down this race as no one driver wants to actually race a Chase contender and up knock him into the wall, its still one of the better races of the year. If they really wanted to spruce things up they …

Frontstretch NASCAR Power Rankings: Top 15 After the 2010 CARFAX 400 at Michigan

At the center of it all is Jack Roush, who put three cars inside the top five at Michigan; was that enough for all of them to make moves toward the top of the Power Rankings? And while Kurt Busch done blowed up, was that lack of horsepower enough to send him tumbling out of the poll? This week’s NASCAR Power Rankings reveals all the movers and shakers after the year’s final trip to the Irish Hills.

Fantasy Insider: Roll Those Michigan Dice With EGR for a Big Winner

Welcome back everyone to this week’s edition of the Fantasy Insider. This week NASCAR returns to the heart of the American automotive industry for the Carfax 400 from Michigan International Speedway.

Fantasy Insider: Mark Martin & Tony Stewart Will Be NASCAR Kings of the Road

With the exception of my two-year-old son pointing to me and saying “DA DAAAAAAA,” there is no sweeter sound to my ears than that of 43 NASCAR engines thundering through the hills of New York’s wine country in Watkins Glen. And speaking of thundering, the weather this weekend looks brilliant, meaning I may actually get …

Frontstretch NASCAR Power Rankings: Top 15 After the 2010 Sunoco Red Cross Pennsylvania 500 at Pocono

The 24 Hours… err, 500 miles of Pocono not only tested the mettle of all 43 teams Sunday, but it tested the metal of the Car of Tomorrow when Elliott Sadler pounded the inside wall, leaving his engine laying in the middle of the track and his life hanging in the balance. Luckily, the likable …

Fantasy Insider: Tony Stewart, Kevin Harvick Primed for 2nd Round of Pocono Success

Welcome back, everyone, to this week’s edition of the Fantasy Insider. Last Sunday was a bit rough for my picks; the usual suspects failed us at Indy, posting finishes that were mediocre at best, disastrous at worst for our rosters. Between Jeff Gordon‘s splitter and Juan Pablo Montoya splitting in two down the stretch, everyone’s …

Frontstretch NASCAR Power Rankings: Top 15 After the 2010 Brickyard 400

The Brickyard 400 started out like a historic nightmare on repeat, on the verge of a second debacle in three years – only this time, the culprit was going to be poorly manicured grass. But Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing had no such issues, avoiding overheating from the “lawn” as the race settled in while Juan Pablo Montoya …

Fantasy Insider: Jeff Gordon on Verge of Brickyard Breakthrough… Again

NASCAR heads to Indianapolis Motor Speedway this weekend where the racing really isn’t that good, but it’s OK because, after all, it’s the Brickyard. I half expect NASCAR to add the Hoover Dam and the Pyramids to their next schedule as they are also historic venues that may not necessarily lead to great racing either, …
