Time to Park It: Dixie Vodka 400

Both of William Byron's victories have come in Florida

It has been a truly intense, and interesting, few weeks in Florida to say the least.  Including the season-opening event that was not for points, just a trophy, we’ve seen four different winners, two of them being first-time experiences. But at the same time, did anyone expect those that won ...

Dustin Off the Next Race: Dixie Vodka 400

Dixie Vodka 400

In essence, the entire month of February for NASCAR has called Florida it’s home.  Three races, three different race tracks, two completely different facilities.  It started with a late night on the big super speedway, then a change in setup and race packages meant lefts and rights in the same ...

Time to Park It: O’Reilly Auto Parts 253

Another first-time winner in just two races...NASCAR is on a roll right now.

I guess NASCAR could say it is 2-for-2 on the season in one aspect that no one really expected.  No one really expected Michael McDowell to take home the Daytona 500 one week ago.  Sunday the favorite in the race ultimately had trouble, and admitted to having made mistakes in ...

O'Reilly Auto Parts 253

Weren’t we just here?  I mean it was last Sunday that NASCAR was at Daytona, and saw another unexpected upset in the biggest event of the season, and now we’re back at the same track. Well, originally, this venue was not supposed to have a double-dose of action for Speedweeks, ...

Time to Park It: 63rd Annual Daytona 500

Nearly 400 starts to his credit, getting that first career victory for Michael McDowell was well worth the wait.

Was it worth waiting for?  The long pre-race festivities that included driver introductions, Luke Combs in concert, and the flyover by the Air Force Thunderbirds…was it worth waiting for? An over five-hour rain delay that at some points had all of us feeling it would be a Monday race just ...

Dustin Off the First Race: 63rd Annual Daytona 500

Daytona 500

No matter what year it is, nor the feeling one may be experiencing at the moment, there is something very consistent when mid-February comes each year.  There comes two guarantees with it, the first being that on one day couples get to honor one another more than any time of ...

Dustin Off the New Season: Busch Clash at Daytona

Busch Clash

It is hard to fathom that it was just over three months ago it was an afternoon where a driver was holding up an enormous trophy as a champion, a pair of drivers were calling it a career behind the wheel, and somehow an entire sport was able to run ...

Time to Park It: 2020 NASCAR Cup Season

There's a new champ...and the siren is still blaring.

There has never been a season quite like that of what 2020 had given us all.  It all started out with so much pride, a sold-out facility, and a race that ended with a familiar victor, and a silent crowd.  That silence in the crowd with what they witnessed at ...

Finally Permanent: Monster Truck Hall of Fame Finds Its Home

The Hall of Fame and Museum is in Auburn, Indiana, but only until spring.

Forever Home…words a husband and wife, their kids, and family all eventually want to have.  A place that they know exactly where they will grow up, make memories, and never have to leave.  Families long to have that, and once it is achieved, everyone knows where it is, and sometimes ...
