By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Angry and broken hearts galore during Saturday’s Bristol Night Race where a lot was on the line. Some things ended up being the same as Kevin Harvick scored his ninth win of the year, leaving him just a victory away of being the first driver since Jimmie Johnson in 2007 to get at least 10 wins in a single campaign. Not only that, it was a 500-lap event filled with chaos as hoods popping, tires vibrating and even a little rivals battling it out for everyRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer James Davison was ninth fastest (224.315 mph) in Thursday’s practice at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, doing so with a burnt right heel. You’ve read that right, Davison has been navigating the physically and mentally demanding 2.5-mile superspeedway with a personal setback. The five-time Indianapolis 500 starter confirmed to NBC Sports’ Dillon Welch that he sustained second degree burns during the NASCAR Cup Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway two weeks ago. Since then, the 33-year-old Australian had been nursing his injury and briefly described how it’sRead More

Davison recently competed for Ware’s Cup Series entity last Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway where he finished 30th. He’ll be make an additional two Cup starts forRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Ever wonder how NASCAR would either benefit or become a detriment if they have a graduate level system to where performance and actions defines a competitor’s future in the sport? That’s what I got from Brad Keselowski’s comments following Sunday’s O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 at Texas Motor Speedway. Following a ninth-place finish, Keselowski had a lot to say about NASCAR needing to police drivers, making it pretty obvious he was referring to Quin Houff, on whether or not they’re capable of competing in the sport’s highestRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Although any form of racing action won’t start anytime soon, it’s never too early for Joey Gase to announce Wednesday what throwback scheme he’ll run in the Southern 500 September 6. For the 71st renewal of one of NASCAR’s most iconic races, Gase will honor Bobby Allison’s 1971 Coca-Cola paint scheme with Gase’s primary sponsor Agri Supply being onboard of Rick Ware Racing’s No. 51 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. Gase is far from the only competitor that’s driven one of Allison’s schemes on Throwback Weekend over theRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer The virtual world of NASCAR took center stage and it definitely didn’t disappoint as three-time Daytona 500 champion Denny Hamlin held off Dale Earnhardt, Jr. to win the first-ever eNASCAR/iRacing Pro Invitational Series race at the virtual Homestead-Miami Speedway Sunday. Coming to the white flag, Dale Jr. had the advantage over Hamlin as he controlled the more gripped bottom lane, but Hamlin wouldn’t be denied as he had fresher tires after pitting late in the race despite being on the top groove. Hamlin’s No. 11 FedExRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer B.J. McLeod wears multiple hats around the NASCAR garage. Not only he drives for JD Motorsports in the Xfinity Series, but also owns a three-car operation in the same series, and occasionally drives for Rick Ware Racing in the Cup Series. Through it all, the 36-year-old has been competing in the national touring series since 2010 when he drove for Germain Racing at Martinsville in the Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series. During last month’s Daytona 500 Media Day, McLeod said that ever since his 17thRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Heading into tomorrow’s Bluegreen Vacations Duels at Daytona International Speedway, we already know that Justin Haley and Brendan Gaughan are locked in for the 62nd Daytona 500 after being the fastest open cars in last Sunday’s time trials. However, the biggest angle are those five guys on the outside looking in as only two spots are left. The immense pressure of racing among themselves to be the top guy in their respective Duel races is there but each their own story. InRead More
By David Morgan, Associate Editor The list of drivers and teams with their sights set on making it into the field for the 62nd running of the Daytona 500 continues to grow. On Friday, two more drivers announced their intentions to compete in the Great American Race. First came the announcement from David Ragan, who retired from full-time racing in the NASCAR Cup Series last year. The 34-year old native of Unadilla, Georgia will pilot the No. 36 Ford Mustang in the Great American Race, with sponsorship from Select BlindsRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Spencer Boyd went through a lot of highs and lows in his NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series rookie campaign. As did his truck team, Young’s Motorsports, who went from one full-time truck with Tyler Young and Austin Hill driving it over the years, to now three full-time entries in 2019. Boyd made the jump from SS-Green Light Racing in the Xfinity Series to a full-time Truck Series gig. Right out of the gate, Boyd finished fourth at Daytona after being just one of nine drivers outRead More
