The folks at NASCAR are really quick to point out that their television partners get to pick the window that the race gets broadcast in. But maybe it’s time for the “experts” on holding a race to have a little talk with the television people. Through most of its history, NASCAR never got a race …

Harvick vs Hamlin. The Big Three. Blah Blah Blah. Back in 2018, Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. were a triple threat all season long. So much so that they picked up a moniker – the Big Three. The triumvirate accounted for a remarkable 20 of the 36 wins, but it was Joey …

It was yet another long week for NASCAR, but this time it was not only weather that was the culprit. A case of mistaken identity when a knot wasn’t just a knot and was thought to be a noose led to an emotional Sunday (June 21) which was quickly doused by rain. The next day …

It was a long week for NASCAR, but can someone tell me how an organization that makes Florida its home can think that scheduling a race at 3:30 p.m. ET in the middle of June is going to work in South Florida? I understand that television partners often make the call, but even they should …
