By Joey Barnes, Editor-in-Chief The next round of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series is set for this weekend with the Digital Ally 400 at Kansas Speedway, the home track of Clint Bowyer.

On paper, the deck was stacked against the Middletown, Connecticut native. Logano was the only driver of the Championship 4 without aRead More
By Brian Eberly, Contributing Writer HOMESTEAD, Fla. – After pacing all three rounds of qualifying on Saturday at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Cole Custer appeared to be the favorite, especially when taking into account his domination of last year’s NASCAR Xfinity Series Ford EcoBoost 300.

After the first two stages of Saturday’s race, it was déjà vu as Custer led all 90Read More
