By David Morgan, NASCAR Editor Since 1997, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series has been making the trek to the Lone Star State to take on the 1.5 mile Texas Motor Speedway, but of the 32 events that have taken place at the track, just one sticks out as the best of the best.

By David Morgan, NASCAR Contributor These days Jimmie Johnson is considered one of the greatest of all-time with seven championships and 80 wins to his name, but there was a time when the California native was a fresh faced rookie just looking to make a mark on the sport.

By David Morgan, NASCAR Contributor As the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series gets set to head to Phoenix International Raceway this weekend for the second stop of the West Coast Swing and the Camping World 500, we’ll take a step back in time for this week’s “Throwback Thursday Theater” to the 2007 running of the Subway Fresh Fit 500.

By Joey Barnes, Editor-in-Chief The roster of talented drivers for Team Penske in both the Verizon IndyCar Series and Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series prepared for a race of their own this week and it involved marshmallows and saying the words “chubby bunny.” It is as hilarious as it sounds as IndyCar drivers Helio Castroneves, Will Power, Simon Pagenaud and Josef Newgarden were more than up to the task against NASCAR’s trio of Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano and Ryan Blaney. All in good fun as Easter is coming up, butRead More
