What can you say about Kyle Busch? Rebound stories happen in sports every year (as evidenced by some stories in this year’s ESPY awards), but I can’t honestly say that I expected Busch to be one of them. For Busch to have missed the first 11 races of the Sprint Cup Series season due to …

Life is all about little miracles and happy little surprises. Running into an old friend you haven’t seen in a while, getting all green lights on the morning commute… …or an exciting race in an event full of unknowns and uncertainty.

When Kyle Busch suffered through a horrendous wreck in the season opener for the Xfinity Series at Daytona in February, some wondered if he would ever race again. Once doctors determined the severity of the injuries—a broken right leg and fractured left foot—the question became when he would return. Next season? Six months? Longer? Shorter? Even …

We say it every year, but I’m always amazed at how fast the racing season passes by. One day the excitement of the Daytona 500 sets upon us, providing much needed racing after a long, cold offseason. Soon after, it’s the first day of summer, Father’s Day weekend, the sun is beating down on most of the …

There’s the familiar adage that “When it rains, it pours.” Sometimes, though, that’s not always the case. Anyone who has watched racing for a while knows that it doesn’t take a lot of rain to slow or stop a NASCAR race. While it might delay the start or temporarily stop the action, eventually the cars can usually …

Eventual Coca-Cola 600 champ Carl Edwards really needed to win a race. He had just moved over to a brand new car at Joe Gibbs Racing from Roush Fenway Racing at the beginning of the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season, giving him optimism for a new beginning in his career but also applying some pressure …

Up To Speed: Kyle Busch Shows No Signs of Weakness in All-Star Return

Hey, did you hear Kyle Busch is back? Because if you were watching Saturday night’s race (with the sound off, mind you), you may not have noticed anything different. If you’ve been living under a rock, Busch has been MIA from the Sprint Cup Series for a while — since the beginning of the season actually. …

Up To Speed: Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s Brutal Honesty Following Talladega Victory

Dale Earnhardt Jr. won at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday. There was a time when that phrase would have been nearly an afterthought, almost a foregone conclusion; a “been-there-done-that” acknowledgement from the racing world. Earnhardt’s win on Sunday was his sixth victory at the 2.66-mile racetrack and 24th of his career, but his first since 2004. His …

Kurt Busch’s win at Richmond came with a lot of, well… baggage. You see, Busch isn’t necessarily the most popular person outside of NASCAR. Following domestic abuse allegations from ex-girlfriend Patricia Driscoll, Busch was suspended for the first three weeks of the season after a family court in Delaware ruled it was “more likely than …

Who knew Bristol was an endurance race? Oh, sure, the ability to endure is something that drivers have to be able to do in order to win the race, but endurance racing is something totally different. Those long races are better served for series that have multiple drivers for each race, times carved out, and, oh …

The last time the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series was in Texas, the post-race conversation was all about temper tantrums and post-race pit road brawls. Brad Keselowski vs. Jeff Gordon is one of the most recognizable stories from 2014. And as the laps wound down during Saturday night’s event, I thought it would be the same …
