Let me start by saying I cannot summon up my normal degree of rage when I disagree with calls NASCAR has made from this weekend. Anytime a restrictor plate race concludes and I don’t have to start working on a driver obituary or try to gather information on fans injured in the grandstands (like after …

Talladega Superspeedway is usually a toss-up, where craziness is the norm and staidness need not apply.  At least on Sunday, that was not the case. Sunday’s 1000Bulbs.com 500 had the second-lowest number of lead changes in any Cup race ever run on the 2.66-mile tri-oval (15).  Why?  Because Stewart-Haas Racing apparently found a way to …

Who… gets my shoutout of the race? How about three of them this week?  It’s impossible to ignore the finishes Jimmie Johnson and Paul Menard had because both were 35th or worse at some point. Johnson spun early and recovered to seventh, while Menard had a couple of issues, losing two laps before coming back to …
