James Hinchcliffe, who is seeking a win of his own to join the trio, also chimes in. Additionally, this year marks the 50thRead More
By David Morgan, Associate Editor The Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race has seen its fair share of fireworks over the years, but in the fifth edition of the annual exhibition race in 1989, those fireworks spilled off the track to create one of the more memorable moments in the event’s history. Heading into “The Winston,” as the race was known in those days, both Rusty Wallace and Darrell Waltrip had won three races each and it appeared that the two would be fighting it out over the course of theRead More
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. However, past success has been anything but a pleasant homecoming for the driver of the No. 14 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford Mustang. Teammate Kevin Harvick won last year’s edition of the spring classic, which helps provide some optimism, along with a new 1.5-mile package, for 2019’s return to the Sunflower State. Our friends from Mobil 1 The Grid bringRead More
By Joey Barnes, Editor-in-Chief Five-time NTT IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon took a moment to reflect on his stellar racing career.

Now 38, Dixon is still in prime form as he reaches for even greater success in 2019. Our friends from Mobil 1 The Grid highlighted the Kiwi in their latest installment.Read More
By David Morgan, Associate Editor Everyone knows Talladega Superspeedway as the biggest, baddest track on the circuit that has produced amazing racing and a plethora of memorable moments since its inception, but half a century ago, the 2.66-mile behemoth of a track in Alabama was just getting its start, and it was a controversial one at that. With the success of Daytona International Speedway, the first superspeedway project for Bill France, Sr. 10 years earlier, NASCAR’s founder wanted to go even bigger and with that, the dreams of Talladega tookRead More
By David Morgan, Associate Editor Over the years, Jeff Burton and Jeff Gordon have had their share of on-track battles and some that continued outside the car, but in September 1998, the two gave Burton’s home state fans in Virginia a race to remember and one of the closest finishes ever at Richmond Raceway. Both drivers started in the top-five for the Exide NASCAR Select Batteries 400, but the lead would jump between 10 different drivers in the first 150 laps of the race, including Burton, Rusty Wallace, Bobby Hamilton,Read More
By David Morgan, Associate Editor The bump and run. A move that we all know and love and one that is ubiquitous with the racing at Bristol Motor Speedway. In the mid-1990’s, Bristol was a race track with the preferred groove right around the bottom, often leaving drivers with one option to pass their opponent…you guessed it, the bump and run. Add in two titans of the half-mile bullring fighting for the victory and an instant classic is born. Entering the 1997 season, Rusty Wallace was gunning for his sixth winRead More
By David Morgan, Associate Editor We all know how dominant Petty Enterprises was in its heyday, as the organization captured 250+ wins over the course of its lifespan with Richard Petty, Lee Petty, and a handful of others behind the wheel, but after Petty’s final win in 1984, trips to Victory Lane would become a much rarer sight. Only three other times after that would a Petty Enterprises No. 43 car take the checkered flag and in April 1999, John Andretti would be the last driver to deliver a win forRead More
By David Morgan, Associate Editor Racing at Auto Club Speedway has had its ups and downs over the years, but the annual trek to California in 2013 became one of the best races in the track’s history. Due to the worn out track surface, drivers were racing from the very bottom of the track all the way to the outside wall, creating three and four wide racing throughout the event, especially on restarts. All just an appetizer for the main event at the end of the race. With the race windingRead More
