Martin Truex Jr. left Martinsville Speedway one year ago wondering what might have been. This time around? Everyone else was wondering how in the world they could catch him in Sunday’s (Oct. 27) First Data 500. Truex flat out dominated the final Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series short track race of 2019. Leading a track …

ONE: And Then There Were 8 I’m going to boldly predict that not many prognosticators had Kyle Larson, Ryan Blaney and Denny Hamlin winning the three second stage playoff races, so I’m not going to be foolish enough to make any wild picks for the third round. Given that winning at either Martinsville Speedway, Texas …

Kansas isn’t exactly known as a state full of scenic beauty, unlike its neighbors Colorado, Nebraska and Missouri. (Oklahoma has its fair share of scenery as well.) Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race, the Hollywood Casino 400, at Kansas Speedway (located on the Sunflower State side of Kansas City) felt like a typical stormy …

Early in NASCAR’s 2019 season, Team Penske appeared to have two top shelf contenders for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series title.  Brad Keselowski kicked off their effort, rolling to three victories in the first 12 races of the year.  After a disappointing playoff run in 2018, the No. 2 team was looking like a …

The pressure is on this weekend at Kansas Speedway, as four drivers will be eliminated from the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoffs. The Hollywood Casino 400 will air on NBC on Sunday, Oct. 20, at 2:30 p.m ET. Kansas is a traditional cookie-cutter, mile-and-a-half oval, and with this year’s low horsepower package in effect, …

The Headline(s): Having survived three big ones on Monday afternoon (Oct. 14) after an uneventful first stage Sunday, Ryan Blaney bested Ryan Newman by less than a foot coming to the line to score a season-saving victory that locked the No. 12 team into the Round of 8. It wasn’t without controversy, however, as Blaney …

Who … should you be talking about after the race? Ryan Blaney led three different times at Talladega Superspeedway for a total of 35 laps, but the third time was the charm as he took the checkered flag inches ahead of Ryan Newman thanks to a timely shove from superspeedway specialist Aric Almirola on the …

2019TalladegaMENCSRyanBlaneySpinCCK2

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series’ 1000Bulbs.com 500 at Talladega Superspeedway, ironically for a race sponsored by a light bulb company, was mostly delayed from the original Sunday start due to a lack of lights (and a ton of rain). So the second and third stages were run Monday afternoon (Oct. 14), and all in …
