Gambling Cliche Racindeals

March 9th, 2011

PRESS CONTROVERSY: Apparently after the victory by Trevor Bayne at Daytona, the members of the press in the press box cheered. As a result, one reporter was fired. From around 1995 to 2000, I had press credentials and covered all of the Talladega races and a couple of Bristol races. You were expected to not […]

Phoenix Rising Racindeals

March 4th, 2011

GORDON’S STREAK: So Jeff Gordon breaks a 66 race losing streak at Phoenix, and I actually found myself rooting for him. Ten years ago, I’d have been rooting for someone to wreck him on the last lap. Ah well. I guess everyone has mellowed over the years. I’ll be sad though to see him pass […]

Two to Tango Racindeals

February 21st, 2011

GET YOUR DANCE PARTNER: So the Daytona 500 played out pretty much like everyone expected, with two-car drafts the order of the day. That led to a record number of lead changes, and apparently a record number of cautions. The racing was relatively interesting though.  Although two cars in tandem were fast, once they got […]

Shootout Racindeals

February 14th, 2011

So I watched the Shootout Saturday night at Daytona. It was the most excitingly boring race I think I’ve ever seen. The fact that NASCAR seems to be ok with speeds nearing 210 mph is interesting. I still say they’ll decrease the size of the hole in the restrictor plate before the 500. •  At […]

Rain Delayed Racindeals

March 30th, 2010

THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS FRIGHTFUL: Wow, how about three major races being affected by rain on the same day? The Cup race in Martinsville, the open wheel race in St. Petersburg, and the drag race in Charlotte were all affected in one way or another by rain on Sunday. They all had to run or […]

Old Timey RacinDeals

March 22nd, 2010

WEEK OFF: Since NASCAR had a spring break last week, I decided to take one as well (at least from this blog). OLD TIMERS: I tuned in to see the last 20 or so laps of the old timer’s race at Bristol on Saturday. The concept of the race is interesting, but the reality of […]

Wreckin’ RacinDeals

March 8th, 2010

THE 800 POUND GORILLA: You can’t really comment on Sunday’s race without talking about the boneheaded move that Carl Edwards made when he intentionally wrecked a competitor. Edwards basically caused the first wreck by moving down on Keselowski, and then had the gall to blame it on Keselowski. So to get back at him, Edwards, […]

Lost Wages RacinDeals

March 1st, 2010

GRAND NATIONAL OOPS: I completely forgot about the Grand National race on Saturday until after it had already started. When I did tune in, it was just in time to see Danica crash out. So I was spared the endless Danica updates the rest of the race. BIFFLE KUDOS: Good on you, Greg Biffle, for […]

California RacinDeals

February 22nd, 2010

SERIES SPONSORS: I don’t get paid to mention the names of the sponsors of the top three NASCAR touring series (for any FTC types out there). So I’ll be referring to them as the “Cup” series, the “Grand National” series, and the “Truck” series. Now if those sponsors want to throw some money my way… […]

New Hampshire Racindeals

June 30th, 2009

BLIND PIG RACING: There’s an old country adage that says “Even a blind pig gets an acorn every now and then.” This year, we’ve seen two blind pigs get a win, by playing the rain “strategy”. David Reutimann and now, Joey Logano both have won rain shortened races. Races that, had they gone the distance, […]
