With the Chase now well under way in the Sprint Cup Series, it’s easy to lose track of the excitement and potential looming large in the other series. The Xfinity Series in particular has plenty of championship-capable drivers who are able to win races – even in events chock full of Cup Series regulars – …

The Chase field is set and the race for championship is on. Not a lot of real surprises in the Chase and not very much drama in the final regular season race of 2015. I guess they can’t all be barnburners. However, it’s time we begin making our picks for the Chase grid, narrowing down …

The Bojangles’ Southern 500 was by most counts a success with the new aero package and tires matched to it; ratings were the best for a Labor Day weekend show since 2007.

I think I have said this every year and will probably continue to say this ever year thereafter, but I am always amazed at how fast the season goes. The Daytona 500 simultaneously feels like years ago and days ago. I remember the race clearly and recall already thinking about the Chase and how different …

For all that was said about the throwback weekend at Darlington Raceway, the nostalgia did little to change the fact that The Lady in Black is still Too Tough to Tame.

Coming off the final off weekend for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, we had the Camping World Truck Series and Xfinity Series to whet our racing appetite (at least in the stock car world). Because of the off week, almost no Cup drivers appeared in either event, giving the series regulars and developmental drivers a …

A gutsy call by crew chief Danny Stockman on fuel gave Paul Menard the opportunity he needed to drive to Victory Lane at Road America, his home track. The victory was his third Xfinity Series victory and first win on a road course. Menard was the only Cup Series/non-NXS regular in the field as the …

Change has been rather commonplace in NASCAR over the past year or so, but it’s hard to imagine a time when changes were occurring on a week-to-week basis like they are now. Kentucky, Indianapolis and now Michigan have had new aero packages in an effort to improve the on-track product. The low-downforce package at Kentucky Speedway …
