Custom Tracks

If you could create your very own, custom race track, what would it look like? What series would race there?

Mine would be a literal tri-oval racetrack; much like Pocono, but shorter, with more rounded straightaways and with higher banking. I would have the Nationwide and Cup Series race here, each with 1 event a year. There would also be a road-course included for IndyCar events. I chose to put this track in Savannah, Georgia, simply because of the location - the closest…

Posted on this page are new Sprint Cup Series 2013 paint schemes. The schemes here are in order of car number; so Brad Keselowski…

2012 Chase Predictions

The Chase field is set, and here is where I think everyone will wind up when it all ends in Homestead:

 

1) Jimmie Johnson. He's been here before, and has shown quiet consistency all season long - he'll start out only 3 points behind Denny Hamlin to start…

Bristol 2 Race Preview

As we enter turn 3 of the 2012 NASCAR season, we visit one of the most physically and mechanically demanding tracks on the entire schedule. Ever since it's opening in 1960, Bristol Motor Speedway has been known as a track that eats away tires, burns up engines, and is torment on drivers, not to mention the large amount of torn-up sheet metal. Notorious for it's large…

Michigan 2 Race Preview

Occasionally, racetracks must be repaved; either to cover over a deteriorating surface or to increase competition. It is inevitable, and although most drivers hate it, speeds are often increased and grip is decreased. For race #23 out of 36 on the season, we are at Michigan International Speedway, another repaved speedway that we are visiting for just the second time. June's event produced speeds higher than we had ever seen before…

Pocono 2 Race Preview

There are few tracks on the Sprint Cup Series schedule that drivers struggle to get a handle of; most are typical ovals. But of the 36 event on the yearly schedule, there are circuits that are so difficult and unique that they follow after the "minutes to learn, a lifetime to master" quote. Among those tracks are the road courses in Infineon and Watkins Glen, the rectangular-shaped Indianapolis, and this week's track, Pocono. It's the…

Loudon Race Preview

It's the official halfway point of the 2012 season, and we are getting ready to visit what is one of the flattest, quirkiest tracks on the entire schedule. New Hampshire Motor Speedway will be the home of this week's Lenox Industrial Tools 301, in what could be the deciding factor in who will and won't make the Chase, on both points and the Wild Card. Jeff…

Daytona 2 Race Preview

We're officially 17 of 36 points races into the 2012 season, and this weekend's race at Daytona will be the half-way point. For teams, however, this is not just any other race. Restrictor-plate events always bring more wrecked cars, damaged points days, and mad drivers than any other type of track on the circuit. Thus, being one of the "wild card" tracks on the schedule, you can't blame teams for being a little antsy of one of the…

Kentucky Race Preview

Saturday night races have always been a fan-favorite; ever since they were first introduced back at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the mid-1990s for the annual All-Star event. It brought fans to the sport, and is still a welcome addition to what is normally known as a Sunday afternoon sport. Racing "under the lights" always brings an exciting atmosphere, no matter what track it's on. This week the NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers visit Kentucky…

Infineon Race Preview

The Sprint Cup Series rarely visits road courses; in fact, in only 2 of the 36 points races do drivers turn right without damaging their cars. But when we do, it produces some of the most interesting and fun racing of the year. NASCAR has always been synonymous with ovals, and courses like these were just occasional add-ons on the schedule. For the past few decades, the circuit has been limited to 2 road courses a year, Watkins Glen in…

Michigan Race Preview

Occasionally, racetracks must be repaved; either to cover over a deteriorating surface or to increase competition. It is inevitable, and although most drivers hate it, speeds are often increased and grip is decreased. Last week, we were at Pocono Raceway, and it's new asphalt surface brought up the speeds and created more passing. For race #15 out of 36 on the season, we are at Michigan International Speedway, another repaved speedway…

Pocono Race Preview

There are a handful of tracks on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule that drivers struggle to get a handle of; circuits that are so difficult and unique that they follow after the "minutes to learn, a lifetime to master" quote. Among those tracks are the road courses in Infineon and Watkins Glen, the rectangular-shaped Indianapolis, and this week's track, Pocono. It's the only 3-turn track on the entire schedule, and with three…

Dover Race Preview

As we exit turn two of the 2012 NASCAR season, we visit one of the most physically and mechanically demanding tracks on the entire schedule. Ever since it's opening in 1968, Dover International Speedway has been known as a track that eats away tires, burns up engines, and is torment on drivers, not to mention the large amount of torn-up sheet metal. Notorious for it's…

Charlotte Race Preview

There are three major races on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule: the Daytona 500, the Brickyard 400, and the Coca-Cola 600. They are known as some of the longest, most physically-demanding  events all season long. But don't take my word for it; NASCAR itself chose these events to be 3 out of the 4 "crown jewel" races that had to be won in order to claim what was known as the "Winston Million" back in the 1980s and 1990s. It was…

Darlington Race Preview

If you were to ask a NASCAR driver which race he would most like to win, there are three events that consistently come up as answers: the Daytona 500, the Brickyard 400, and the Southern 500. These races have always been considered "crown jewels" of the sport; tracks at which only champions and legends win at. Just take a look at the list of all-time winners here - a driver has won his first NASCAR race at this 1.366-mile oval just 3…

Talladega Race Preview

It's here. The race that teams have marked upon their calenders with a big red circle is now upon us. Being one of the "wild card" tracks on the circuit, you can't blame teams for being a little antsy of the largest, fastest, and most unforgiving track on the entire circuit. Since everyone is on equal horsepower at these restrictor-plate races, anyone can pounce on the opportunity of a possible victory. After all, who could have…

Richmond Race Preview

Short-tracks have always been a fan favorite on the NASCAR schedule, and this weekend at Richmond International Raceway is certainly no exception. One of the most unique and quirky tracks on the circuit, RIR was designed for side-by-side racing and lots of passing. Many drivers use this event as a practice for the race here in September, which is the last race before the Chase. But no matter how each team will look at this race, the…

Kansas Race Preview

Everything is bigger in Texas, and we saw that in terms of green-flag runs last week. For 234 circuits at the end of the race, there were no yellow-flags to slow down the field. And while many fans are still upset about the quality of racing there, we are headed to one of the most exciting intermediate tracks on the schedule in Kansas Speedway this week. One of the newest tracks in the series, this speedy oval has proved to be one a…

Texas Race Preview

After a quick off-week, the Sprint Cup Series is back in action. While many fans enjoyed the idle 7 days to enjoy family, hobbies, and food over the Easter weekend, I'm sure that most of us are glad that the sport is back up and running. Texas Motor Speedway, one of the fastest and most popular venues on the circuit, will host this week's event, the Samsung Mobile 500. Although we've already visited a few intermediate tracks so far in…
