We have a great debate about NHRA’s Countdown championship format on our hands here. It’s called KB Racing. Jason Line has won five of eight races so far this season and his teammate Greg Anderson has won the other three. Third driver, Bo Butner, has also seen some final round action. As a matter of fact, …

Last weekend we were treated to the spectacle that is four-wide drag racing. It happens once a year at zMAX Dragway, Bruton Smith’s Bellagio of drag strips, and the only four-lane strip out there. Smith is kind of a “Go Big or Go Home” guy. One journalist was attending just his second race at the …

Sprint Cup: Underdogs Perform at the Paper Clip – From the drop of the flag to begin practice at Martinsville Speedway Friday, there were surprises near the front of the field.

Here we are, already halfway through the Countdown to the Championship, with three races in the books and three more left to complete the 2015 season.

I know I have covered the Street Outlaws ground before, but I have one more good point to make. My example might not be strictly NHRA; however, I think it still applies. Once again, the NHRA’s stance toward the show is completely understandable. Street racing, even if it is understood to be a staged portrayal, …

Sprint Cup Series: All-Star Snoozer – While the question of whether or not the All-Star Race has outlived its usefulness is a valid one, the bigger question resides with how it should remain should it continue. One comment that seemed appropriate regarding the race is that, to truly be an all-star race, drivers from all levels …

This weekend in Las Vegas, drivers in NHRA’s Pro Stock category will compete in a special bonus event, the K&N Horsepower Challenge. (Think All-Star Race.) So what’s on the line? A nice check to the tune of $50,000 for the winner and, of course, bragging rights. The two Saturday qualifying rounds will also serve as …
