Who’s in the headline It took 10 years to fulfill the predictions but Joey Logano is your 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion. Logano took advantage of a quick, short-run car and passed Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. on a late race restart to take command of the race and run off into …

As a result, the graphs touting the win total along with Kyle Busch at 184, compared to Richard Petty’s 200 Cup Series wins and David Pearson’s 105 wins started …

NASCAR 101: Top 5 Silly Season Moves of All Time

Unlike in most other sports, the term “free agency market” isn’t used in NASCAR. Instead, NASCAR begins “silly season” usually around the halfway mark of the year, and there are much more lame duck drivers and teams than in “stick and ball” sports. There have still been some huge driver transactions in the near 70-year …

Darlington Raceway Logo

As NASCAR heads back to Darlington Raceway, finally restored to its rightful place on the Cup schedule after 12 long years without what was once the sport’s longest-running tradition, there are dozens of reasons why the odd-shaped, high-banked oval is one of NASCAR’s true treasures. Here are just a few. 1. If you don’t like …

The Sprint Cup Series had its final off weekend before the run to Homestead. So we thought it’d be fun to stir the pot a little and ask the question, “who are the top NASCAR drivers of all time?” This question has been debated for many years and the lists are quite different depending on who …

David Ragan and Regan Smith have the opportunities of a lifetime: longer-term rides as substitutes in the Sprint Cup Series. Now, that’s certainly true of Ragan, who will fill in for Kyle Busch in the No. 18 for Joe Gibbs Racing for several races until Busch’s recovers from his Daytona injury. Meanwhile, Smith has been …

MPM2Nite: The Next 5 Hall of Famers

The hullabaloo surrounding the opening of the new NASCAR Hall of Fame has reached a crescendo, or at least the highest level of noise the marketing types in Charlotte and Daytona Beach have been able to achieve. Let’s just say that said opening is a few notches beneath the general public’s radar screen, and it’s …

Driven to the Past: A Little History, Here…

We’re driving back more than 40 years this week. One of my favorite sayings is attributed to Harry S. Truman – “The only thing you don’t know is the history you haven’t read yet.” Whether the late President said that or not, it’s pretty profound. This was brought to mind by all the comments about Jimmie Johnson‘s “domination” …

Mirror Driving: Dale Jr.’s Next Step, Park’s NASCAR Comeback & Jimmie’s Chase to Lose?

Jimmie Johnson left Charlotte with a 90-point lead, the largest margin in history five races into the Chase. Does Johnson have the title in the bag at halfway, or is there still someone with something for the three-time champ?

Big 6: 2009 NASCAR Banking 500 at Charlotte

This week’s pat on the back goes to a driver who desperately needed to prove something, if only to himself. Casey Mears has been with five different teams in the last five seasons, and all indications are that next year, he’ll be with his sixth. While Mears isn’t in the upper echelon of Sprint Cup drivers, he hasn’t exactly had the consistency to establish himself, either. Mears’s seventh place finish was a well-planned and hard-fought one.

Beyond the Cockpit: Kyle Petty Still Victory Junction’s “Driving” Force… Just on 2 Wheels

It’s been 11 months since we last saw Kyle Petty step behind the wheel of a Sprint Cup car, finishing 39th at Phoenix in his 829th (and possibly final) Sprint Cup start. Three months later, he was out of any management role at Petty Enterprises, a merger with Gillett Evernham all but ending his attachment …
