There was this very dumb, extremely unfounded story going around the Internet earlier this week claiming that Matt Kenseth was going to be retiring, either immediately or at the end of the season, depending on who you asked. It was debunked almost immediately, with the actual press conference Wednesday (April 19) being some actual good …

Think Small It feels like NASCAR’s small teams get a bad rap right from the start from some fans and even media.  Too often, they’re lumped into a “backmarkers” category, often mocked for their poor performance compared to rivals.  To hear some people talk, you’d think they went out every week and ran in the 20’s …

No Margin For Error Last week, we looked at the importance of improvement for small teams.  For those that realistically just can’t compete with their powerhouse rivals on a weekly basis, it’s a better measure than finishes alone.

Think Small It can be said that the real NASCAR season starts at Atlanta. The Intermediate track season kicked off last weekend and the results were fairly predictable of the small teams this week.  In general at a 1.5 to 2-mile track, these teams struggle to keep up.  You might see a couple of teams …

Think Small Well, Daytona is in the rearview mirror. Depending on who you ask, that’s either a real bummer or can’t come too soon, depending on how the race went. The thing about plate tracks is that they’re such an opportunity for teams to compete—if they’re lucky and avoid trouble.  They can also become exercises …

Ah, yes. The twisties.  Even if the races were relatively boring, I’d still love them, the road course detours that throw a wrench into typical stock car competition. We had two races this weekend with quirky incidents and hard racing, both elements missing from the NASCAR landscape as of late. Last weekend, the Sprint Cup and XFINITY …

The NASCAR Xfinity Series garage is full of haves and have-nots. The popular section of the garage area is covered with expensive haulers, sponsors aplenty and top-tier equipment from Sprint Cup Series programs. However, for the few people that dare to venture beyond the reflective Team Penske haulers and multi-million dollar teams, there are a wealth …

Big 6: Questions Answered After the 2010 Budweiser Shootout at Daytona

Kevin Harvick is probably feeling pretty darn good after his second consecutive Shootout win. Harvick was so sick on Thursday that he wasn’t even in Daytona – Clint Bowyer and Jeff Burton practiced for him – but bounced back to win in classic Harvick fashion.

Carl Edwards talked all week about how his No. 60 team had to be perfect the next two weekends if they had any shot of scoring a second consecutive Nationwide title.

Nationwide Series Breakdown: 2008 Diamond Hill Plywood 200 at Darlington

In a word: dominating. That’s how one could describe Tony Stewart’s run at Darlington in the Diamond Hill Plywood 200 Friday night. Stewart, who qualified third, led on three different occasions for a total of 90 laps to score the win. His fourth victory in the Nationwide Series this season, it also doubled as his first in any NASCAR division at the Lady in Black.
