Time to Park It: Big Machine Hand Sanitizer 400

The "Big Machine" on Sunday has been on a tear since the sport returned.

Finally, a race that actually did not have any political news leading into the race, but it did have something missing for sure.  Not seeing Jimmie Johnson at the track in a sense is like seeing the Bulls on the court the year after Michael Jordan called it a career ...

Dustin Off the Next Race: Big Machine Hand Sanitizer 400

Big Machine 400

This holiday weekend just feels so different compared to what it was a season ago.  Last year, it was a return to the beach to welcome teams in celebrating Independence Day.  It was a weekend where we are to celebrate the freedoms to be ourselves, do what we love, and ...

Dustin Off the Next Race: The Pocono Double


All this week the focus has been on what took place on Monday, and then the ensuing days of what one investigation concluded, then what another found and implemented. Don’t get me wrong, I understand the reasoning, and by no means am I trying to push the issue to the ...

Time to Park It: GEICO 500

This is the moment that defines today's NASCAR.  Lead by example.

Wow…the last three days pretty much summed up in one word. It began with rain, then it became race, followed by unification, then actual on-track racing, and finally it has become about revelation, and acceptance. Wow. How try and sum up Talladega and not have the main story be the ...

Over the years, I am certain that all the readers on this site, and those that follow me on Twitter, understand that when this track comes on the schedule, my blood pressure goes up.  Yes, I talk about the unknown…I discuss the vulnerability…and I discuss control, since all those come ...

Dixie Vodka 400

Didn’t we just get racing on Wednesday night?  It literally once again feels like the sport got back under way, since once again the series is running three races in a matter of eight days.  Difference is, unlike at the return, racing is going to three different tracks, each with ...

Time to Park It: Folds of Honor 500 & Blu-Emu 500

It wan an A-MAIZE-ING Sunday for Kevin Harvick in Atlanta.

The last week has been one of those where the racing certainly has been the talk, but the actions outside of the track certainly have been on the minds of everyone. Sunday’s race, before the green flag was in the air, spoke volumes of where the sport was, is, and ...

Race Graphic

It has been a week of unrest, controversy, and insanity.  The sport of NASCAR is one that usually brings people apart, but over the last nine days the bigger picture is overshadowing what all took place on Sunday at Bristol.  The story of who was right or wrong when Chase ...

Dustin Off the Next Race: Food City Supermarket Heroes 500

Supermarket Heroes 500

Didn’t we just go through a race day just recently…seeing a green flag, a couple cautions, and then a celebration of victory with a burnout, and no fans in attendance?  Sure seems like it, and the turnaround to head to the next track is a lot quicker with the revised ...

Time to Park It: Coca-Cola 600 and Alsco Uniforms 500

One final crown jewel race remains on Keselowski's list for victories after Sunday's triumph.

The long week at Charlotte can be summed up in exactly one word…redemption.  Sure, the focus now suddenly goes to the turnaround to be at Bristol in three day’s time, but that will be covered in the next piece. Ever since last Wednesday night, one word and one driver has ...
