Re: George out as CEO

If there's no open-wheel series in the U.S. at some point, invite the F1 teams to the Indy 500. Just a thought.....

Assuming the F1 doesn't disintegrate entirely due to its upcoming split (a la...

Re: Benson, 2008 champ, out of a ride

That's one heck of a rough week for Benson, who's always been a class act regardless of the situation, and I wish him a very speedy recovery.

Camping World East Series results are now available

2004-present for now but more should be on the way shortly, possibly covering the entire series back to 1987.

Double file restarts

They're heeeere! Surely this will fix everything that ails Nascar.

Could this be an admission that, even on restarts, single file passing is typically not possible in the COT?

Re: Carl Long gets big time penalties

As I understand it, at least they're letting him back into the tracks so he can continue with his other Nascar-related work.

Re: Halfway to the Chase

The reason I looked into this is because of a media request, investigating a comment from a driver who is currently 387 points out of 12th but who insists he has a chance to make the chase.

I...

Halfway to the Chase

Among drivers who qualified for the chase from 2004-2008, the most points (and spots in the standings) made up by a driver in the last 13 races prior to the start of the chase is 278 by Matt Kenseth...

Re: Is Dale Jr. a talented driver?

Finally a decent finish yesterday, although Jr. earned most of that track position by not having pitted when the caution that screwed his teammate Jeff Gordon came out.

In any event, he was able...

Re: How different would thing be if Dale Earnhardt were still alive??

As to the late Dale Earnhardt's impact on the entire Cup series and on Nascar itself, I've said before that I truly doubt that the wussification of Nascar would have happened if Sr. were still alive....

Re: Shorten the races

Maybe you're right and 500 miles at Pocono vs. 400 isn't the problem; I just don't like the racing at that track very much.

One race a year there would be plenty IMO, and some other tracks which...

Re: Stuff NASCAR needs to bring back.

Along those same lines, TV should tell us the actual name of the race, even if the race sponsor doesn't pay (EXTRA) to Fox or whoever.

Get rid of this "NASCAR Sprint Cup racing from Charlotte"...

Because you asked for it....

Well, somebody asked for it: the results from the 2003-2008 yearly East-West Toyota Showdowns at Irwindale Speedway will be posted shortly ('shortly' as in, 'probably just a few minutes').

Re: Shorten the races

Pocono - for sure. 500 miles there is torture for everyone, driver & spectator alike. If not exactly "torture", then serious boredom at the very least. 400 miles would be plenty at that track.

Re: Your Thoughts?

I can't watch the races because I lost the Speed channel, but I wish I could see them. I can't speak for 2009, but over the past few seasons the quality of the racing in the CWTS has been greater...

Re: Busch wackers

Yes, it has been going on since the beginning but there is a difference between someone like Dale Earnhardt running with the "little guys" once in a while, and these drivers today who run every week....

Re: Stuff NASCAR needs to bring back.

1. Race at tracks where the racing matters (North Wilkesboro, Rockingham, Darlington, hell why not South Boston?) rather than the "target demographic" (Fontana, Phoenix, Chicago). Small tracks have...

Re: Jeremy Mayfield

Not defending Mayfield, but doesn't it seem odd that Nascar is refusing driver requests (Ryan Newman made such a request) to learn exactly what substances are on the "banned" list?

How is a...

Re: North Carolina Education Lottery 200 Race Thread!

WOW - Skinner was lucky to come out of that in one piece!

P.S. Nascarmedia site doesn't show Tucker as a DNQ, I guess he withdrew?
