By Seth Eggert, Staff Writer While he entered Texas Motor Speedway as a favorite for the NASCAR Xfinity Series Championship, Christopher Bell leaves in a must-win situation. The O’Reilly Auto Parts 300 was a disaster for the Playoff driver and Rookie of the Year contender. After climbing through the field once in the No. 20 GameStop NBA 2K19 Toyota Camry, Bell battled inside the top-five. He fought with fellow Playoff drivers Austin Cindric, Justin Allgaier, and eventual race winner Cole Custer. On lap 133, Cindric broke loose beneath Bell inRead More

By Seth Eggert, Staff Writer Despite being a member of the ‘Big Three,’ Kevin Harvick flew under the Radar after struggling to run inside the top-10 at Martinsville Speedway. The First Data 500 was an uncharacteristic struggle for the 2014 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Champion. Harvick finished 10th after hovering just inside the top-15 in his No. 4 Busch Beer Ford Fusion. The struggles for Harvick were evident as he was forced to take the free pass at the end of the second stage. Changing track conditions and lack of trackRead More
By Seth Eggert, Staff Writer As sparks flew up ahead, Kyle Busch crossed the line fourth at Martinsville Speedway.

By Seth Eggert, Staff Writer NASCAR Camping World Truck Series team owner Mike Mittler celebrated his team’s milestone 300th start from his Missouri home as he battles cancer.

Kyle Donahue had the honor of driving the No. 63 First Responder Racing Chevrolet Silverado in the Texas Roadhouse 200, the team’s 300th race. The underfunded team spent much of the day hovering justRead More
By Seth Eggert, Staff Writer In a relatively calm race at Martinsville Speedway, track position, or the lack thereof, kept Noah Gragson from earning a better result. The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver ran the Texas Roadhouse 200 with zero practice on a brand-new set-up in his Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota Tundra. Gragson’s No. 18 Safelite Auto Glass Toyota Tundra moved back into the top-10 late in the 200-lap race. Slow pit stops robbed his Toyota of the valuable track position. Changing track conditions also hindered Gragson’s progress throughRead More
