What a fantastic way to finish! Mark Martin's Nationwide win yesterday at Las Vegas "Marked" his 49th career victory in the series. He continues to hold the record. The race had so many lead changes it was hard to keep up... with Kyle Busch dominating in his usual manner until he got careless and over confident with a move that put him in the wall. That stupid move changed everything for the rest of the field and what I thought was going to be another Carl Edwards race turned into a fuel mile

After a 66 win less streak Jeff Gordon sealed the deal with his 83rd career victory. Phoenix delivered with an action packed short track race with Gordon dominating and even with a crash involvement he showed the younger guys and the fans that he still has it. I was never a Gordon fan... that is until I met him at Daytona 4 years ago and spent and hour taking photos of him while he spoke to a small gathering. I saw a different Jeff Gordon after that and one that I now have complete respect and

Ah wrong answer. Saturday morning teams arriving at the track were informed that the restrictor plate would be 1/64th of an inch smaller than the one everybody had practised with for 2 days. So much for no concern on the part of Nascar about the higher speeds obtained thru the repaving
The Amazing Chase

The Chase for the Nextel Cup seems to have done wonders for the sport of stock car racing. It has taken an at best mediocre announcer Bill Webber and placed him before a national audience, most of the time Bill is unable to remember the names of drivers of the cars. His biggest claim to fame is his very polished fade to a break for commercial. The Chase has also greatly increased the number of cautions for commercial or at least it seems so. I have it seems seen many more cautions called for mys

Johnny Benson wins his fourth race of the year. The race was Benson's from the start and he held off a few challengers late in the going to win his fourth race and close to under 130 points of Todd Bodine in the championship race. Ted Musgrave almost certainly took himself out of the running with his payback of the #14 truck under caution. It certainly looked to be just a racing incident but Musgrave explained it differently. Either way he blew it big time under caution and will probably not rep

There are, at best, the bare-bones makings of two rivalries in the Cup series this year. The first 'rivalry', and it's tenuous at best, is between Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon. The Hendrick monster is running at full song now so I expect to see much more of what concluded the race on Sunday. Any racing series benefits from good rivalries but the thought of these two particular drivers and teams being the best NASCAR can produce doesn't exactly thrill me.
