Shepherd: NASCAR’s outlier
The journeyman driver, who is the oldest driver to ever start a Cup race, will continue to make his already NASCAR record a little more untouchable with his start Sunday.
889 down, one to go for Terry Labonte?
In a career spanning 37 years, Labonte finished top-ten in points 17 times, scored 22 wins, and won two championships with two different owners.
Daytona crashes a testament
No one can question the incredible strides NASCAR has made in safety over the past decade plus.
However, cars are machines and only so much can be implemented to try and keep the drivers inside safe.
Daytona qualifying stirs controversy,
The purpose of qualifying is to get the fastest possible lap, which make the strategy in this new group format interesting, and seemingly less safe than it should be.
If Dale Earnhardt Jr. captures the checkered flag in today’s rain delayed Coke Zero 400, the third-generation driver will join a short list of NASCAR drivers who have won both Daytona races in a single season.
Four drivers, all running for underfunded programs, will lead the field to the green flag Saturday night at Daytona.
Bobby Labonte, Landon Cassill, and Reed Sorenson, qualified fourth, third, and second respectively, while David Gilliland, a 75-1 favorite to win, earned his third career pole and second at Daytona.

Dominic Aragon talks with ESPN's lap-by-lap announcer Allen Bestwick about his job, this season, and what's in the future for the legendary announcer.
Despite a DNF at Sonoma Raceway, Alex Kennedy is looking towards the near-future.
Our writing staff takes a look at three hot topic issues and weigh in their thoughts.
Best Era in NASCAR History? OR is the Sport Hurting Worse than Ever?
Let’s rewind back to seven years ago. It was February 5th, 2007. A new NASCAR show debuted on ESPN. With most of the “main stream” “stick and ball” sports having their own shows, it was great for NASCAR fans to finally have sport included with the others.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. finished third at Sonoma Raceway Sunday, tying his career-best finish at a road course event.
Earnhardt Jr. ran as high as second place, pressuring A.J. Allmendinger for the lead early in the race.
Sonoma road ringer report
Five drivers in need of a good run at Sonoma
With only a handful of races left in the regular season, time is ticking for opportunities to punch a ticket to NASCAR’s post-season. But for drivers on the outside looking in, this weekend’s race may provide an opportunity to close the gap.
Episode 2 of The Racing Experts Podcast is now up! Check the right side column or the "Podcast" tab at the top!
If Marcos Ambrose can win Sunday, he knows the victory will lock his team into this year’s playoffs.
But the rewards for a win Sunday might go beyond 2014. Not only could Ambrose have a career-best season, but a possible win could help the driver in his contract negotiations.
Stewart, Harvick continue to make gains
After inconsistent starts to 2014, Tony Stewart and Kevin Harvick appear to have turned the corner.
The Stewart-Haas Racing teammates have both steadily climbed in points over the last few weeks.
Andy Lally making a return to NASCAR
Andy Lally will be back in a stock car this weekend at the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Road America, according to his Twitter page.
Lone wins: An in-depth look at active drivers
Paul Menard had a strong showing at Michigan International Speedway over the weekend. After securing the second win of his career in Saturday’s Nationwide Series event, Menard had a solid top-five in the Cup race Sunday.
Menard now has two wins in the Nationwide Series, yet only one in Sprint Cup—but it was a memorable win to say the least.
Can Greg Biffle repeat at Michigan?
Greg Biffle will start 18th Sunday in his quest to claim back-to-back Spring wins at Michigan International Speedway.
Biffle enters the race with a 35-race losing streak and ranked 14th in points.
Montoya qualifies, will race Sunday
After a seven month absence from NASCAR, Juan Pablo Montoya will race in Sunday’s Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway.
Montoya, running the
No. 12 car for Team Penske, will make his first start of the season, qualifying
28th for Sunday’s race.
After a rough start to 2014, Martin Truex Jr. and his No. 78 team have scored two consecutive top-ten finishes.
According to Truex Jr., the single-car team from Denver, Colorado has shown glimpses of competitiveness in 2014, and the results do not show the full picture.
It was one year ago this week NASCAR veteran Jason Leffler was killed in a sprint car race at Bridgeport Speedway.
Leffler had been knocked from his Nationwide and Truck Series ride in the span of eight months. Yet, the driver returned to the grass-roots levels of racing, running various short tracks to continue his love of competing.
Kasey Kahne: The Hendrick Motorsports Lone Wolf
In the new win-and-you’re-in playoff format, Rick
Hendrick is all but guaranteed to have three of his drivers in the Chase come mid-September.
The lone wolf on the outside looking in, Kasey Kahne, has yet to win a race
this season and currently sits 21st in points.
Dale Earnhardt, Jr wins the Pocono 400 @ Pocono Raceway
Some people say that luck is the combination of preparation, and opportunity. And that’s exactly what got Dale Earnhardt, Jr to victory on Sunday afternoon in the Pocono 400. Two drivers led more laps than the 88 car, but Dale Jr led the most important one, the final one. Dale Earnhardt Jr wins his 21st NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory, locking himself into the 2014 Chase for the Sprint Cup, and giving himself his first multi-win season since 2004. READ MORE
The only Sprint Cup driver in the field on Saturday in the ARCA race at Pocono, was Kyle Larson, and he sat on the pole and won the race. Larson was driving for Turner Scott Motorsports and was able to edge out Mason Mitchell off of the final restart to claim his first ever ARCA Racing Series win.
Following Larson in the field, was Mitchell, who pulled out to an advantage off the restart, but then Larson was able to track him down. A very tired, John Wes Townley, who drove the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race in Texas on Friday night, finished 3rd. Fourth was Will Kimmel, and Justin Allison finished 5th... READ MORE
If the Chase started today, Paul Menard would qualify for the playoffs.
Once Roush Fenway Racing announced that 2011 Daytona 500 winner, Trevor Bayne, would be to the Sprint Cup Series, full-time in 2014, it left us to wonder who will take over the famous and legendary #21 Wood Brothers Racing Ford.
Bayne has been piloting the Wood Brothers car since the fall Texas race in 2010. It was a time where they were running a partial schedule, and became a subsidiary team to Roush Fenway Racing, which is what landed the young Bayne the ride.
RCR: A season to forget or a
future to look forward to?
Roush-Fenway Racing teammates Greg Biffle and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. were collected in a multi-car accident in Sunday’s Dover race.
A.J. Allmendinger and Stenhouse Jr. made contact in
turn two on lap 135. The chain
reaction wreck also involved Landon Cassill, who received a bump from Ryan
Truex as both tried to avoid the wreckage and debris on the track.
The 55th running of the Coca-Cola 600 started and ended with the same driver in leading the field. Jimmie Johnson won his 67th career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, starting in the pole position. He was able to hold pass Matt Kenseth down the back stretch with nine laps to go and go on to the victory. For Johnson, it’s been a tough start to his 2014 season, and a lot of people in and outside of the sport were questioning if that 48 team is still a legitimate threat for a championship.
It’s the Sunday before Memorial Day. For most people, they’re watching baseball and going to family barbeques. It’s also a time for us to remember all of our troops, and former troops who have fought to keep us free, and be happy on days like today.
Race fans are especially excited. For them it starts with the Grand Prix of Monaco, and the Indianapolis 500, and of course, on the NASCAR side, the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte.
This Indianapolis 500 started off like every one since 1972, with one of America’s favorite fictional military men, Gomer Pyle himself, actor Jim Nabors singing “Back Home Again in Indiana” for the last time. It was a beautiful sunny day in Indianapolis, and once the balloons were released, it was time for some action packed racing.

That question pondered Hank Eskin, who went on to start up WheresGeorge.com.
Eskin recently talked with The Racing Experts about his unique website, how it has garnered national attention through outlets including USA Today and The New York Times, and of course, NASCAR. READ MORE

Following the altercation, NASCAR fans went crazy all over twitter and Facebook all having different opinions on the way that they think NASCAR should handle the situation between the two drivers...Read More
