Brian France made a mistake, let us not forget he is human

Even though he made a serious error, let's still treat Brian France as a human.

Hot Take: Cut the Kansas, Kentucky, Chicago and Texas races to 300 miles

Wednesday afternoon on SiriusXM Speedway with Dave Moody, the driving topic was about the idea of shortening races. Some callers brought up shortening some races to 400 miles or 300 miles. Some callers brought the idea of stripping tracks of two races each. That is not an idea most tracks would find marketable. Their profit margins might have issues....

A NASCAR miracle on February 18

On February 18, 2001, this writer was a nine-year old kid who spent an afternoon sick and unable to play with his friends. That afternoon, this writer sat down and watched the 43rd Daytona 500. It was a depressing day when Mike Helton’s famous words, “we lost Dale Earnhardt.” This writer spent two and a half hours crying in...

The loss of Englishtown is another strike against Jersey racing

Last month at Armchair All-Americans, we talked about the history of auto racing in New Jersey.

Fans for years have questioned the right to have the Baseball Writers of America stripped of their rights to the Hall of Fame voting. This piece is...

Despite youth movement, NASCAR veterans are still prevalent

This weekend at Homestead, we will most likely be saying goodbye to Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and Matt Kenseth. Junior is retiring (except for 2 Xfinity Series races next year) and Kenseth has no ride for 2018. Kenseth’s case is disturbing, especially after his win on Sunday afternoon at Phoenix. Unlike the other four major sports, NASCAR is heavily dependent...

The Indianapolis 500 ‘Fan-sperience’

Memorial Day Weekend is never about the cookouts, the cold ones or the lake trips but rather the remembrance of the brave soldiers that lost their lives so that we can enjoy all of the previously mentioned freedoms on the long weekend. Choosing to celebrate the freedoms that were hard-earned in one of the most American way possible, I ventured...
