Bubble Breakdown: Clock Ticking for Team Red Bull While The Monster Mangles Several Others

As the NASCAR season begins winding down, time is running out for Scott Speed‘s Team Red Bull No. 82 team, the only real threat to John Andretti‘s No. 34, to catch and pass them and get a guaranteed spot for the first five races in 2010. Not only is time now working against Speed and …

Sprint Cup Rookie Report: Mr. Logano’s Wild Ride Means Top-Rookie Honors for Scott Speed

This was one of those weekends where everybody involved with the sport came out as a winner when Logano walked away from an eye-popping accident that left his car in shambles. There are many negative things that have been said about this new car and with good reason, but the additional layer of safety it has introduced into the sport far outweighs the other challenges that crews and drivers have had to deal with as a result. It was unfortunate though for Logano that he was at the wrong place at the wrong time as the accident ended what could have been a potential top-10 run.

Bubble Breakdown: Andretti, Labonte’s Solid Showing Leaves Speed Searching For Answers

Well if you were to ask John Andretti, he’d tell you that New Hampshire is just beautiful this time of year; but ask Scott Speed, and you may get a totally different answer. While driving to a solid 26th-place finish, Andretti and the No. 34 team extended their lead over Speed and the No. 82 …

Sprint Cup Rookie Report: Rookies Perform Terribly While a Former ROTY Behaves Terribly at Loudon

The New Hampshire Motor Speedway has been regarded by many as one of the most difficult tracks on the circuit. Apparently, this was true for the freshmen, who – despite their previous experience at this track – ran into a lot of difficulty trying to navigate its tight corners. Dismal outings by all of the rookies and almost rookies have left me with little to say about their performances on Sunday.

Scott Speed Driver Diary: Teammate Is In While Best Friend Is Out, Crew Chiefs in the Information Age & St. Lucia

As you could imagine, everybody at Team Red Bull is really pumped about my teammate Brian Vickers making the Chase. It is definitely a big step for our entire team as we establish ourselves on the circuit. To keep things in perspective though, just like I mentioned after Brian’s Michigan win, while we are all …

Bubble Breakdown: Regan Smith Smashes Streak While John Andretti Extends Lead On 35th

With NASCAR’s Chase for the Cup upon us and 12 of the sport’s top drivers locked in and ready to battle for the championship, the chase just to be in the Top 35 has boiled down to pretty much two teams: John Andretti (No. 34) and Scott Speed (No. 82). Andretti’s once comfortable margin in …

Sprint Cup Rookie Report: Freshmen Struggle to Find Footing at Richmond… With 1 Exception

14th place may appear to be an insignificant type of finish for most drivers. However, it represented just the performance the No. 20 team needed. After making significant progress in the second half of 2009, Joey Logano had cooled off somewhat over the past two weeks with finishes of 34th and 22nd at Bristol and Atlanta, respectively. After qualifying poorly, it looked as if the streak would continue, but Logano and team made steady progress towards the front and recorded a solid finish, exactly what the racing doctor ordered.

Denny Hamlin Finally Claims Victory at Home in Richmond; Vickers Claims Final Chase Spot

For Denny Hamlin, races at Richmond International Raceway are home games. It would mean the world for him to win there since he grew up only eight miles from the track. Well, after Saturday night, Denny doesn’t have to pine for a win anymore. Hamlin led six times for 299 laps Saturday night, although many …

Sprint Cup Rookie Report: Joey Logano Leads Quiet Night for Rookie Contenders

Much as ESPN’s focus was on the Chase and the drivers contending for it, the action at the front of the pack was largely veteran, with the rookies in the field left to run their own races and to figure out an already difficult circuit under the lights. And while Logano managed to crack the top 15 and run with the leaders (including eventual race winner Kasey Kahne), the ever-changing track conditions at Atlanta proved too much for even the Rookie of the Year leader, as the No. 20 car lost their handle and faded late.

Bubble Breakdown: David Stremme, Paul Menard Lead Several Bubble Drivers With Top-20 Finishes

Well pull up a chair kids, we had a major case of musical seats amongst some of our bubble teams that isn’t even over yet and I’m gonna try and explain it all to you. It started when Bobby Labonte who drives for Hall of Fame Racing was taken out of his ride by HoF’s …
