South Point 400

All the focus entering this event was, and still is but rightfully so, on the 16 men that locked in their opportunity to go after a championship.  It’s no longer about who missed the cut, or came so close, but about who made the field and now has an opportunity ...

Race Graphic

No words, no sentences, literally no expressions that I can put down to describe how much this weekend, and this track, mean to me.  Everyone that knows me has always asked me what is my favorite track of the entire season.  Those of you that follow my writing over the ...

Toyota-Save Mart 350

Here we come to a road less traveled, with a bit of a detour and a ride off into the sunset.  Three different journeys will come to their conclusion when the green flag drops this afternoon. Let’s begin with the detour, one that has pretty much everyone excited, because they ...

Dustin Off the Next Race: Firekeepers Casino 400

Firekeepers Casino 400

I don’t think there’s one individual in NASCAR, fan…team…driver…official…not even a media member, that can say they hate Michigan.  Sure, some drivers have experienced better luck than others at this place, but the fact is this place almost has the best of everything in one two-mile setup.
