  2. "Home Track Results - Week 6 (Indy Lights)" posted by The Long Shot on March 31, 2014   (4 comments)

    Despite two Home Track events being scheduled for this week, only one was actually run. The Southern Modified race at Caraway was cancelled due to inclement weather (makeup date to be determined later on). Remember that no changes may be made to existing predictions for that race.

    The Indy Lights race at St. Petersburg was dominated flag-to-flag .... Read the rest of this blog


  3. "RRFRDL Standings After Martinsville/St. Petersburg/Malaysia" posted by The Long Shot on March 31, 2014   (2 comments)

    10Hatah Racin' was fortunate enough to own both of the top two finishers in this week's Cup race at Martinsville, granting them a maximum 90 points. In the meanwhile, Rainbow Legend Enterprises continues to extend their insane lead over the rest of the competition.

  4. "Will the Real Brad Keselowski Please Stand Up" posted by Cooper on March 30, 2014   (3 comments)

    Let me first say that I am not a race car driver. I don't know how it feels to go 200mph and I certainly don't know how it feels racing 42 other people on a half mile track.

    I have been a Brad Keselowski fan for a long time. And no, a long time is not 3 years. I have been a fan for over 9 years. I remember sitting in my bedroom watching the .... Read the rest of this blog


  5. "Racing Nation's Martinsville Preview" posted by A.Conley on March 29, 2014   (0 comments)

    Here we go! Another short track race ready to heat up the Martinsville Speedway, and driver's attitudes will surely match. Coming off a short track race at Bristol that saw fenders wrinkled and frustrations flared, a pack of hungry drivers made the trip out west to Fontana. How were they rewarded? With tire issues that saw many of them turning a .... Read the rest of this blog


  6. "Sprint Cup Series: Who's Hot, Who's Not?" posted by Avery on March 27, 2014   (0 comments)

    Originally published on Speedway Media.

    It seems like after the fifth race, you start to get a solid perspective of who has the hot hand and who is currently falling flat. Although we haven't had a driver win twice yet, there are a few drivers whose consistency has rewarded them. On the contrary, some of the sport's top drivers have been falling ....

    Well, this week's race can be summed up in 2 words: Blown Tires.
    Only 4 people predicted for Nationwide this week, but nonetheless, we will still have an MVP. Our MVP in Nationwide this week is yours truly with 181 points!

    First things first, you all need to label what series your prediction is for. Most of you do it, and I thank you. But some just put the names. I nearly made the dumb mistake of putting someone's Cup predictions in the Nationwide points. This rule has already been stated in the beginning of the season when I laid out all the rules. So please just say .... Read the rest of this blog

    ANNOUNCEMENT: 3 people chose Denny Hamlin last week in their predictions. Since Denny Hamlin's announcement that he wasn't racing came at the last minute, I am going to give the 3 people that chose him 27 points, because that's what Hamlin would have got if he was racing. And, the standings for this week will be posted later on tonight. Truck debut .... Read the rest of this blog

    The East Series race at Greenville-Pickens was dominated by pole-sitter Ben Rhodes, who led 105 out of 150 laps en route to his first career series victory. Only one person predicted Rhodes to win, and that person was Nascar Lead Lap Points, who scores the MVP and MIPA for doing just that!

  16. "RRFRDL Standings After Fontana" posted by The Long Shot on March 24, 2014   (4 comments)

    GrimSchot Motorsports owned the winner, but it was FeebleBunny Productions that made the biggest leap in the standings, courtesy of owning the 4th and 6th place finishers. R3 Motorsports, on the other hand, lost numerous ground thanks to owning Brad Keselowski (26th place) and Denny Hamlin (did not start).

    There was some issue with the points after Las Vegas. Nothing too major, but most of the points were about 1-2 points off. It did not affect the order of the standings and it did not affect the RRFPC Standings. I'm actually very grateful I caught the error when I did because the inaccuracy would have grown as the season progressed. I haven't had the .... Read the rest of this blog

    The East Series at Bristol ended up being a low-scoring affair, as popular picks such as Daniel Suarez, Cole Custer, and Cameron Hayley finished outside of the top 10. Pole-sitter Ben Rhodes, riven3d's pick to win, dominated the entire race, but a late green-white-checkered allowed Eddie MacDonald to dump Rhodes and take the victory, his first in 5 ....

With zero top-fives in the last 10 races there, Dale Jr. will have his work cut out for him if he wants to maintain his streak .... Read the rest of this blog

I wanted to write about why all the noses are so ugly this year, but that's been explained enough already.
