NASCAR’s top circuit heads to Martinsville, Virginia this week, the half-mile paperclip-shaped track that’s endeared itself to fans for decades.

Frontstretch NASCAR Power Rankings: Top 15 After the 2010 Kobalt Tools 500 at Atlanta

The No. 2 car of Kurt Busch managed to win a race, but it was two other stories that stole the show this weekend at Atlanta.

Fantasy Insider: Gordon, Stewart Your Top Dogs in Georgia

Last week was a mixed bag as far as my fantasy predictions went. You did well if you picked my mid-pack duo of Joey Logano (sixth) and Scott Speed (22nd, plus five bonus points for a lap led).

Fantasy Racing Insider: Look No Further Than Roush Fenway for Fontana

Well, last week wasn’t too horrible for me – or for you, if you took my fantasy advice – when all was said and done. Four of my drivers finished in the top 25, all of them finished in the top 30, and four of them logged bonus points for leading laps. All three of …

Frontstretch NASCAR Power Rankings: Top 15 After the 2010 Daytona 500

The parity of plate racing put some unfamiliar faces up front in NASCAR’s Super Bowl – jumbling up the Power Rankings like crazy after just one week.
