NASCAR at Texas from Just A Fans View

Ah-h-h-h, Texas… Not only is it a big state but it is a big race, at least for some that need to have a good finish and it is a Saturday night race, which in this fan’s opinion, just might make it even better. The first thing many think of when they think of Texas …

Martinsville After Thoughts from Just A Fans View

I don’t know, there’s just something about short track races. This last weekend at Martinsville was just about one of the most interesting NASCAR short track races I’ve watched in a long time. There was really never much of a let down in the action anywhere on the track and the racing was very good …

NASCAR at Fontana After Thoughts – A Fan’s View

There were those that thought the race at Fontana was a real snoozer… that is until the last few laps of the race. One reason was the dominance of Kyle Bush at the 2 mile oval track in California. Not only did he win the Nationwide race on Saturday, but he led the most laps …

Vegas 2011 After Thoughts from Just A Fan’s View

I’m not sure how you saw it but it looked like it was going to be another one of those days where the least likely make would end up taking the checkered flag, (and show us all just how little we know about how races are going to end.) I mean, if you look at …

NASCAR at Vegas from Just Fan’s View

This weekend in Las Vegas is going to be interesting to say the least; that is, if practice and qualifying reflect anything at all about how the race will go. The Fords are looking just as strong as they did last weekend in Phoenix and, from this fan’s view, I reckon it remains to be …

NASCAR at Phoenix: Top Three Dueling It Out in the Desert

The problem with being in the top three in points with two races to go in the Chase is there are more than three cars on the track, about twenty of them could win on Sunday and only three of them have anything to lose, (uh, between the three of them that is.) Those three …

NASCAR at Texas After Thoughts: Hamlin Wins Chase Race #8

Denny Hamlin not only won Chase race #8 but also took a 33 point lead over Jimmie Johnson in the Chase for the 2010 Sprint Cup. If that was all that happened it would be a relatively ho-hum day for many, but Texas had a lot more than just a shift in who was leading …

NASCAR at Texas: Sadler Takes the Pole For Chase Race #8

Non-Chaser, Elliott Sadler, took his first pole in a very long time and delivered Richard Petty Motorsports some upbeat news after several weeks of nothing but tumultuous days and negative speculations. That doesn’t mean the RPM teams are out of the woods yet, but it does mean they are still working hard to make good …

NASCAR at Talladega: Will It Be Treats or Tricks For the Chasers at Race #7 in Alabama?

It has often been said in the past several weeks that Martinsville and Talladega could be the biggest game-changers the Sprint Cup drivers face in the Chase for 2010. Judging  from the way Martinsville went; Talladega could very well end up making some feel less than super after Sunday’s race. The unknown is whether it …

NASCAR at Dover After Thoughts: Johnson Wins Number Two and the Monster Bites a Few

Jimmie Johnson won race number two of the Chase and once again tamed the Monster Mile. He didn’t just win, but it could be said that he had a dominate performance by also taking the pole and leading the most laps. So does this mean he is headed for his fifth Cup Championship in a …
