Fantasy Insider: Gordon, Stewart Your Top Dogs in Georgia

Last week was a mixed bag as far as my fantasy predictions went. You did well if you picked my mid-pack duo of Joey Logano (sixth) and Scott Speed (22nd, plus five bonus points for a lap led). Hopefully, you also followed my advice of avoiding Juan Pablo Montoya, who finished 37th. Unfortunately, Montoya got …

Bubble Breakdown: Newman, Ambrose Fighting For Their Top-35 Lives

Hello! Before we get into this week’s edition, I’ve been so wrapped up with the start of the season that I haven’t taken the time to introduce myself. The name’s Brock Beard, and I’ve always had a soft spot for NASCAR’s underdogs. Whether it’s trying to come up with a colorful nickname for Mike Bliss …

Scott Speed Driver Diary: Enjoying Red Bull Success on the Track & at the Olympics

Hey everyone. Right now, I’m just hanging out, chillin’ in the desert with my wife Amanda, Kyle [Busch] and his now fiancée. There’s no sense on heading back east when we have to come right back out to Vegas, so we figured that we’d hang out and have some fun on the left coast before …

Fantasy Insider: Kyle Busch Only Sure Bet in Vegas

Well, we did a little better last week at Fontana than Daytona. All my normal picks finished in the top 23, with my studs running in the top 13 and two of my underdogs 12th and 17th. Plus, Jamie McMurray won the pole while Brian Vickers logged bonus points for leading the race. My dud …

Who’s Hot/Who’s Not In Sprint Cup: 2010 Auto Club 500 at Fontana Edition

I’ve done this column twice so far in 2010, and both have been when I’m physically less than 100%. At this rate, it seems like my body is mimicking the attendance at virtually every race ever run at Fontana (Zing!) But seriously, folks, the second race of the season gave us a solid look at …

Bubble Breakdown: Blaney Needs a Sponsor, Ambrose & Newman Need a Break

With the second race of the season complete, a rough picture of the 2010 bubble is starting to take shape. Teams have just three more weeks to get their act together, which is why Sunday’s 500-miler at California was such an important step in the process. The cookie-cutter oval has very similar characteristics to the …

Jimmie Johnson Wins 2010 Auto Club 500 After Getting a Lucky Break

Back during Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway, Hendrick Motorsports’ teams didn’t look like their dominant selves. Jimmie Johnson suffered from a broken axle late in the race, forcing him to retire on lap 185 and finishing 35th as a result. In Fontana, the status quo returned. Johnson had the best car on Sunday, leading eight …

5 Points to Ponder: Of Potholes, Speedweeks & Qualifying Nightmares

Understandably, Jamie McMurray was thrilled after scoring the biggest win of his career. But in his post-race press conference, the usually calm and composed McMurray literally broke down into tears when speaking to the media, commenting on how his father was his best friend and the man he grew up racing with.

Bubble Breakdown: Truex Terrific, Speed Surprising & Front Row Flops

The Great American Race is in the history books, but the battle for the bubble is just beginning. Already, the No. 66 of Dave Blaney (PRISM Motorsports) and the No. 09 of Aric Almirola (Phoenix Racing) have some ground to make up in 2010 after they both failed to make the big show, but what …

ESPN Proud to Present the Danica 300 – At the Expense of Everyone Else

Earlier in Speedweeks, when asked by Frontstretch about his network’s planned approach for handling Danica-mania as the Nationwide Series prepared to make its season debut, ESPN’s Vice President of Motorsports, Rich Feinberg, remarked that he found “SPEED’s presentation [of last Saturday’s ARCA race at Daytona] was very balanced.” In short, that means race fans tuning …
