  2. "So You Want to Broadcast Racing" posted by Uptight Motorsports Nerd on July 31, 2013   (8 comments)

    ESPN and TNT have announced they will discontinue their relationship with NASCAR, thus bringing NBC back into the fold. To help aid the transition, I have compiled a list of do's and don'ts for prospective race broadcasters. In the spirit of trying something different, I will use HTML and hope Racing-Reference isn't using BBCode.

  3. "F1 Standings and IndyCar Picks" posted by NicoRosbergFan on July 30, 2013   (19 comments)

    IndyCar picks for Mid-Ohio are now being accepted. Picks are due Sunday 8/4 at 3PM.



    Here's the rule, folks, if I pick Vettel (like in Hungary), he will screw up what should be a 20-30 second win. If I don't pick Vettel (Canada, Germany), he will win in a car that should be 4th-5th at best. F*ck it, I'm a retard!

  4. "Cup and Nationwide Predictor Standings After Indianapolis" posted by The Long Shot on July 29, 2013   (19 comments)

    Despite posting his predictions a mere 2 minutes before the green flag (which I'm not terribly pleased about; if you could, try and post your predictions earlier, please), the Indianapolis MVP goes to David, who scored his 2nd MVP of the season by leading the league with 15 points!

    Results:

    1. David: 15 (3 out of the top 5 (3 exact), .... Read the rest of this blog


  5. "Grand-Am Rolex Round 8 Results" posted by David on July 27, 2013   (1 comment)

    Well, just like that, my first round as "master of picks" is over. All that needs to be done is update you pickers. Dodge took home the victory in the DP class, NicoRosbergFan won the GT class, and was the overall winner. Here are the standings:

    Standings:

    Overall:
    1. NRF - 490 [4] {4}

  6. "Who is the future? Top 10 for F1:" posted by Biscuits In A Red Bull on July 26, 2013   (1 comment)

    As you might've gathered, I like lists. I like them a lot. Most of my previous posts involve some sort of list at some point. The reason why I like these things is because they are easy to read and understand (normally) and, of course, provide a great starting point for debate.

    So, without further ado, here are the 10 drivers who I think could .... Read the rest of this blog

  8. "Backward into the Future: the 2014 F1 Season" posted by NicoRosbergFan on July 25, 2013   (5 comments)

    This is going to be my analysis on how I think the 2014 F1 season will shape up. The ROTFLMAO title will become self-evident later on.

    Here's what the schedule will look like:
    Abu Dhabi Grand Prix @ Yas Marina
    Grand Prix of America @ New Jersey

    Introducing...the Racing Reference NFL Fantasy Predictor League!

    Let's rewind a bit. This has been a very hard year for the fantasy games on this site. We started the year with 5 games, with approximately 40 players playing them. Now, we're down to 3 games, and only about 15 people are still actively playing. Three of the people running the .... Read the rest of this blog

  12. "A Subjective Look at Points Systems in Racing" posted by David on July 23, 2013   (54 comments)

    The goal of every team in racing is to win the season-long championship. To do this, they must have accumulated the most points over the whole season (unless they race in the Sprint Cup Series, in which case they aim to have the most points after the 10-race "playoff" has concluded). But not every system is the same. Some give the title to the most .... Read the rest of this blog

    At the suggestion of someone, I shall compile a list of the top-10 things that make you a fake race fan, that is a "fahn." This continues our NASCAR/Star Trek Adventure that will continue until I run out of Star Trek movies/TV Series to parody and/or steal from.

    Say hello to your new Grand-Am pick taker! That's right, they stuck me with it. Haha, just kidding. So Dodge, you don't have to boycott the other series now. Just as a refresher to you all, here are the rules:

    Daytona Prototype class:

    Cars that finish in top-3, but aren't exact, 5 points

  16. "Yet Another Announcement" posted by NicoRosbergFan on July 19, 2013   (19 comments)

    Next year, changes are coming to F1 and IndyCar picks. I have not been impressed with those of you who make your IndyCar and F1 predictions AFTER qualifying. It's not fair to those of us who are trying the predict based on knowledge. So here's the deal, starting next year, correctly predicted winners picked AFTER qualifying will only get 5 ....

  21. "Racing-Reference Fantasy" posted by NicoRosbergFan on July 18, 2013   (17 comments)

    As much as I loved doing these, sometimes even the best things must come to an end. Draco disappeared from the face of the earth 4 months ago. Then 24over48 disappeared as well. My games are lucky to get 5 people a week. It's time we face it. The Fantasy games here at Racing-Reference.info are dying. I am struggling to find the will to continue ....

  22. "Dear Lord March..." posted by Biscuits In A Red Bull on July 18, 2013   (0 comments)

    I'm sure that every single one of you has heard of the Goodwood Festival of Speed. If you haven't, you aren't a true racing fan. I'm pretty sure you'll know this, but the event is star-studded, with several current, former and soon-to-be Formula 1 drivers and several other big (and small) names from motorsport of any era (check out 83-year-old Jack ....

  23. "Even I Think This is Radical" posted by Uptight Motorsports Nerd on July 17, 2013   (9 comments)

    Based on the weepers at Loudon this past Friday, the 23-year-old asphalt is showing its age. There have also been rumblings of Sprint Cup returning to a dirt track. This smells like a chance to kill two birds with one stone. I propose converting New Hampshire Motor Speedway to a dirt track.

I will be listing them in the order of selection, with the panelist that made the selection in parenthesis.

    Jeff Gordon talked about mid-week racing, so I figured it was time for an episode of "I wrote a story about that"

    Mid-week racing is a common thing, in the summer the Teen Series run a few races in the summer. the Red Bull 24 starts on Tuesday and ends on Wednesday, although it's starting to fall on the vernal equinox, the race starts in the .... Read the rest of this blog

    It's time to address some issues that plague NASCAR at the tip top. There are many issues that are causing decreasing ratings, fan apathy, and more, but we shall address only those issues which can be fixed at the top of the ladder.

    Let's number the issues:

    Note: I started writing this before the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

    A lot has been said about short track safety in a post-Leffler world. There appear to be a lot of complaints about the safety features of short tracks, but most of these come from people who do not know what they are talking about. Those who call for SAFER-barriers to be ubiquitous .... Read the rest of this blog

    Don't worry. If you think this is to do with the F1 tyre failures, it isn't. In fact this post only really regards this site.

    I'd like to make it clear that, although the American racing database on this site is second to none, and that, with unique data such as cautions for the F1 results, that is world class too, I'd like to see this site .... Read the rest of this blog

    You know what I love about this? I'm the most dedicated follower of F1 here, but I'm a big idiot when it comes to picking races; makes this job worthwhile. MIPA goes to David for picking Nico Rosberg to win and getting 26 points! A shout out to RichardHead, who got the top-5 right, but in the wrong order.
