Obviously, a victory in Fort Worth will provide a big advantage for any of those title hopefuls as they prepare for that final race. But there may be one driver who would benefit most from a victory in Texas. Kyle Larson and his Hendrick Motorsports have been the talk of the season so…

Kevin Harvick needs to prove a point before the end of 2021

For a driver who was eliminated following the NASCAR Cup Series race held last Sunday afternoon at the Charlotte Motor Speedway ‘Roval’, Kevin Harvick has commanded a great deal of this week’s racing news cycle. Last year at this time, he was also a major part of the NASCAR Playoffs story but for a very different reason as many considered him the favorite to go on and add a title to the one he earned in 2014. After the 2020 ‘Round of 8’ Harvick and his Stewart-Haas Racing team were knocked out of contention and went to the season finale…

Chase Elliott vs Kevin Harvick embodies the new vs the old in NASCAR

Unless you have been off of the planet over the past few weeks, you probably already know of the running feud between NASCAR Cup Series champions Chase Elliott and Kevin Harvick. What appeared to have begun at Bristol Motor Speedway with a side-by-side rub that later turned into one driver holding the other up long enough for a lead change to occur has now evolved into a pair of crashes on the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval. A pair of face-to-face disagreements in the Bristol infield were followed up this past Sunday with some televised post-race barbs thrown in each other’s…

Will anyone follow Bubba Wallace’s lead?

Jackie Robinson is perhaps the most iconic figure in American sports history in terms of African-American athletes breaking the barrier of what had previously been considered a sovereign realm for whites. When the Dodgers legend entered Major League Baseball in 1947, it was not only a significant moment in the history of sports but also for American culture as a whole. What makes the first black player’s legacy so important in sports as well as life in general is that not only was he a great player but he paved the way for numerous others to follow his lead and…

“All Press is Good Press” and NASCAR will get plenty of press this week

Invariably, a trip to the Talladega Super Speedway by the three top series in NASCAR leads to all sorts of chatter before, during and after each racing weekend. Drivers, teams, fans, and media often weigh in with their likes and dislikes of the giant track and the type of racing that goes on there. Pack racing, tight competition, close finishes, and the constantly looming threat of the ‘Big One’ are all topics of conversation in regard to the Alabama facility. Not only did this past weekend provide all of that, but at the same time, history making elements of the…

Sometimes bad races just have to play out as bad races

The South Point 400 held last Sunday at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway was a terrible race. There’s just no two ways about it. The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event had nothing to hang its hat on as two drivers(Denny Hamlin & Kyle Larson) combined to lead all but 35 of the 267 laps and despite the fact that Chase Elliott did close in on eventual winner Denny Hamlin late in the going, there was little doubt who was going to win over the closing laps. Following a weekend that featured one of the most exciting and drama-filled races of…

Here’s why Las Vegas may be the most important race in the NASCAR Playoffs

Whoever is crowned as the NASCAR Cup Series champion on November 7th at the Phoenix Raceway may very well look back at the South Point 400 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway as the most important of the races within his NASCAR Playoffs run. After all, this race on the 1.5-mile layout located in the Nevada desert could very well be considered the only “normal” race within this ‘Round of 12’. Besides the race in Las Vegas, this Playoff round consists of a race at the Talladega Super Speedway and the Charlotte Motor Speedway ‘Roval’. Both of those tracks bring…

Concrete better than Dirt for NASCAR at Bristol

The sister site to this one, InsideDirtRacing.com, is obviously dedicated to the coverage of dirt racing so the title of this piece may get this writer in trouble with some of his readers. But this past weekend clearly demonstrated that, for NASCAR at least, the concrete surface at the Bristol Motor Speedway made for better racing than the clay surface installed around the half-mile oval back in the spring. As a matter of fact, it would be hard to image a better collective trio of races than those contested by the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, the NASCAR Xfinity Series,…

Bristol’s track surface could play a role in deciding the first Playoff cuts

The first round of cuts in the NASCAR Playoffs will take place this Saturday night following the NRA Bass Pro Shops Night Race at the Bristol Motor Speedway. Four of the original sixteen drivers who earned their way into the title chase will lose the opportunity to be crowned champion at the end of the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series season. As a result, the pressure is on for those involved in the stretch run toward the championship as the first round draws to a close at one of the sport’s toughest and most exciting tracks. Potentially adding to the high-banked…

Kyle Busch should be penalized … but not necessarily for the language

After contact with the No. 3 car of Austin Dillon on lap 125 of the Cook Out Southern 500, the Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota of Kyle Busch slammed the outside wall of the Darlington Raceway. The damage was significant enough that the No. 18 team decided immediately to take the car to the garage area and retire it from competition. It was a devastating blow in this race that served as the opener for the NASCAR Playoffs. Soon after the incident, Busch was interviewed by NBC and his language was not exactly well suited for a Sunday School class. “It…
