Tony Stewart On The Verge Of A 3rd Cup Championship As An Owner In 7 Years, 2017 Could Cap Banner Year For SHR

When you look at the “big” teams in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, Hendrick Motorsports, Joe Gibbs Racing and Team Penske are pretty much the “big 3” in the sport. Each, are top dogs for their own manufacturers. Back in the 70s, 80s and 90s, it was Richard Petty Motorsports and Richard Childress Racing. Then, it was made into those three. But, one team owner is saying not so fast. Tony Stewart bought into Gene Haas’ racing team for the 2009 season. He left a stable ride at JGR…

Keselowski Looking For Redemption After 2012 Cup Championship, Give Penske INDYCAR and NASCAR Titles In Same Season

When the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoffs were set to begin, Brad Keselowski kept saying how he didn’t think he had the speed in his No. 2 Ford to contend for many race wins. While he was right, Keselowski has just one win over the nine races in the playoffs so far and that occurred on a restrictor plate track at Talladega. Also, Keselowski has just three wins all season, the others on a short track at Martinsville and on the 1.5-mile Atlanta Motor Speedway in the second…

Ford Looking For 1st Cup Champion In Over a Decade

Since 1965, Ford has won just eight Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series championships. While they’re one of the most prestigious manufacturers and loyal participants in NASCAR, they just haven’t had the championship pedigree. Under the new “Chase” format that was adopted in 2004, Chevrolet has won 10 titles. Toyota and Dodge have each won a championship too. While Ford has won a title themselves, they haven’t won in over a decade. In fact, Kurt Busch won the inaugural championship under the “Chase” format in 2004. Unfortunately, they haven’t won a…

If You Want To Win 2017 Championship At Homestead, You Must Win The Race Itself Too

The Championship 4 is now set, as four Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers will vie for a chance to take home the Cup championship trophy Sunday at the Homestead-Miami Speedway. This race is like no others on the schedule. There aren’t any stage points, playoff points, etc for the Championship 4, whoever crosses the finish line first among the four title contenders will win the season championship too. Seems easy right? The biggest catch though is that in order to take home the hardware, you’re likely going to have…

Is The State of The NASCAR XFINITY Series Good?

As we head to the season finale for the NASCAR XFINITY Series at the Homestead-Miami Speedway this weekend, a debate on whether the outlook for the series is good comes to question. We’re six races into the playoffs, with one race remaining, and so far, just one playoff eligible driver has taken their car to victory lane. That stat alone sparks the question on if the state of the series has a good outlook. But, I dug a little deeper and found that despite the fact that only one playoff…

William Byron Exceeding Expectations On His Route To Homestead

The 2017 NASCAR XFINITY Series season is coming to a close on Saturday afternoon at the Homestead-Miami Speedway. With that being said, so is William Byron’s XFINITY Series campaign too.

In 2016, Byron ran a full season in the series with Kyle Busch Motorsports. He’d finish fifth in the final standings. What was impressive though was…
