Who… gets my shoutout of the race? On paper, it doesn’t look like much of a race, starting and finishing in seventh spot. In terms of the playoffs, it wasn’t. But for Kurt Busch, Sunday (Nov. 4) at Texas was a good day. While Busch didn’t lead a lap (he nosed ahead of Kevin Harvick …

I’ve never been much on gambling. Perhaps that’s because I’ve lived most of my adult life in the suburbs of Philly. Our professional sports teams are notorious for failing to live up to expectations.  Even with success seemingly imminent, those teams will find a way to wrest defeat out of the jaws of victory and …

Martinsville is an interesting place.  By anyone’s standards, it is not the kind of place that would normally host a major event.  It’s a small independent city of less than 15,000 people (as of the last census) that is off the beaten path.  The track itself is technically inside of a neighborhood with people living …

Motor Over Mojo There’s no doubt that both matter, but it’s clear that the machine makes a bigger contribution than the man (or …

Unlike the ROVAL in September, the elimination race for the Round of 12 at Kansas was missing the epic moments that have come to define critical races in the playoffs. The same four drivers who entered Kansas below the cutoff line were eliminated after Sunday’s race, as none of them were able to put themselves …

Martin Truex Jr. and Furniture Row Racing are nearly one year removed from winning a championship together.  They have defended their title well in 2018.  With four wins this season, Truex is among the so called Big Three who look like the most legitimate championship threats. Or, at least he was this summer. Since then, …
