NASCAR NATION-Where NASCAR Fans UNITE!

Okay, it won't be long now. 2016 is gone. The sun is shining on January 1, 2017 here in Indiana. NASCAR drivers are getting married. Congratulations, Amy and Dale! And they're taking their kids skiing. Lydia Johnson has got to be one of the cutest little skiers ever!

And they are changing teams. Erik Jones to Furniture Row and Chris Buescher to JGR Daughtery. So some teams are growing and some are shrinking. Only Ricky Stenhouse Jr and Trevor Bayne left at Roush Fenway. Will Richard Petty Motorsports replace Brian Scott who retired? (Is he old enough to retire?) Do we know where Greg Biffle will end up? These are all questions that will be answered in 2017.

Another burning question is: will Dale, Jr. be up to par and ready to go in Daytona? That will be an important one. He says yes and I hope that's true. In fact, if I could have my wish, he'd win the championship this year. Yes, even above Jimmie.

Also, will Stewart-Haas will be able to deal with all their changes without a lapse in performance? Tony will be gone as a driver but Clint will be coming in. It has seemed that Clint has been rather grumpy for the last year but I suppose having to go to a lesser team will do that to you. Still, he didn't seem very gracious about it although he knew it was only for a year. Hopefully, he'll change his attitude in 2017. Stewart-Haas will also be changing manufacturers from Chevy to Ford. Ford must have offered them a hell of a deal to get them to do that.

Will Austen Dillon and Ryan Blaney get their first wins this year? Will both Ganassi drivers make the Chase again?

We'll have to get used to a new logo. Actually, Monster seems more in keeping with the daring and speed and boldness of NASCAR than Sprint did. I bet Monster's trophy will be edgier than the Sprint trophy too.

Anyway, I've been reading books and writing blogs and bitching about politics since November. I'm more than ready to designate my weekends for NASCAR again.

Long NASCAR-less Winter Ahead

It was heartwarming to see Matt Kenseth in Victory Lane at Phoenix after his next to the last race (so far as we know). I never considered Matt one of "my" drivers but I always liked him a lot and it seemed that most people did. By sharing his final…Continue

Congratulations to Kevin Harvick for punching his ticket to Homestead by winning in Texas. We only have one spot left to be decided next week. Texas was a sad race for me, watching Jimmie wallow around toward the back, without the speed to contend.…Continue
