1. 1985 Bill Elliott won plenty of races and money and even earned a couple really cool nicknames in 1985. But the big prize eluded the red-headed Georgia leadfoot that year. Elliott came into 1985 having won a total of four NASCAR Cup Series races during the previous two seasons, but proved to be almost …

Robert Yates Racing and the team’s talented young driver Davey Allison made their official debut at the 1989 Daytona 500. Things got off to an inauspicious start. Davey was running well when Geoff Bodine got into his rear bumper and sent the No. 28 car spinning. The car rolled, but came down on all four wheels, and Allison limped off to the pits, where the crew was able to repair the car well enough to get him back out there for points. Allison finished 25th in that year’s race.

What’s Vexing Vito: Johnson vs. Gordon the 2nd Coming of Waltrip vs. Wallace?

During the course of this season, I have written articles both for Frontstretch and Athlon Sports suggesting that a burgeoning rivalry is on the horizon for NASCAR. First it was Brad Keselowski and Carl Edwards, then it was Kevin Harvick and Edwards, and following the dust up at Martinsville, the war of words between Jeff …

What’s Vexing Vito: Doing What’s Right & Doing What Matters – What NASCAR Can Use More & Less Of

With the Martinsville race pushed back to Monday, it shelved Voice of Vito for this week. I know, all of you are crushed… I don’t blame you, since not only am I single and devastatingly handsome, but I can also wield a keyboard like Bill Jordan could a Model 19 Smith & Wesson. All kidding …

Driven to the Past: Taking a Risk at Michigan…

Heard a lot of talk on the TV broadcast from Michigan, as well as in all the shows recapping the race, about crews taking the risk on fuel mileage. Big deal. All they were worried about was finishing the race. I gambled on fuel mileage once during a Cup race at Michigan and had a …
