The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series makes its first trip to Atlanta for the AdvoCare 500.
Atlanta is one of the fastest racetracks on the circuit. It is scary to think what the qualifying speed for Sunday night’s race may be in the new Gen-6 car. The multiple grooves on the racetrack make the race at Atlanta so fun to watch. Teams can setup their cars to run the bottom, the middle, or the top.
The two drivers who have had the most success at Atlanta in the past three years are Jeff…Continue

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series makes a return trip to Bristol for the Irwin Tools 500.
There will be a lot of beating and banging as the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races under the lights at Bristol. Drivers often start the race in good spirits, ready to tame the high-banked half-mile racetrack. By the end of the races, fist should be flying as drivers argue who is at fault for honking the “chrome bumper” in Thunder Valley.
It seems like a long time since the NASCAR Sprint Cup…Continue

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series makes a return trip to Michigan for the Pure Michigan 400.
Since the last race at Michigan in June, the Sprint Cup Series has raced at a superspeedway, three flat racetracks, a cookie-cutter racetrack and two road course racetracks. The drivers who have momentum now may not dominate the race at Michigan since the racetrack is so different from what the Series has raced on recently.
Michigan is a 2-mile D-shaped racetrack. The only other racetrack…Continue

Hate him or love him, Kyle Busch is hittin on all 8 again it seems. Turning the competition into as us Southern folk would say..."Boiled Cabbage"
Third time is the charm as Kyle Busch wins the Cheez-It 355 at Watkins Glen 2013 after coming so close the last 2 years.
Road course, short track or the super high banks. Kyle seems to have all his past and present emotions in check! Never have I seen Kyle in such relaxed form as he is now.
Be it his wife who is keeping him…Continue
The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series heads to Watkins Glen this week for the Cheez-It 355.
This will be the second race of the 2013 season on a road course. Although Watkins Glen is much different from Sonoma, the drivers who had success in California will have success in New York as well. Watkins Glen does not require the technical skills that Sonoma does, but road course racing requires a different breed of driver. Those who figured out Sonoma should have no problem with Watkins…Continue
