Talladega A Great Shot For Stenhouse, Ford Drivers To Shine

As we reach the midway point of the second round of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoffs, four of the 12 drivers still eligible for this year’s championship are Ford powered.

Keselowski/Harvick For Ford, Larson For Chevrolet, Best Bets For Manufacturers In NASCAR’s Playoffs

The playoff fields are set for the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. With that being said, Toyota drivers appear to be the ones most listed as the favorites to hoist the new Monster Energy championship trophy at the Homestead-Miami Speedway in November. But, despite that, Chevrolet and Ford drivers make up 75-percent of the playoff field. To me, they have far better odds of having a Ford or Chevy driver win the championship after 10 races than that of one of the four Toyota representatives. Which will you take?…

No Sandbagging After All, Toyota Dominates at Michigan, Chevrolet Should Be Worried

Brooklyn. MI – Toyota drivers caught a firestrom earlier this weekend at the Michigan International Speedway by comment that Ford driver Brad Keselowsi made after qualifying for Sunday’s Pure Michigan 400.

Ryan Blaney was fastest in practice earlier this afternoon, then the Wood Brothers driver was quickest in the first two rounds of Coors Light Pole Award qualifying at the two-mile track this evening.

Should Recent Chevrolet and Ford’s Performances Make Them Sweat Upcoming NASCAR Schedule?

Call it how it is, if Joe Gibbs Racing didn’t get back on track lately, then this season was wide open as far as who the four finalists would be in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season finale at the Homestead-Miami Speedway in November. Really, it was Martin Truex Jr. and Kyle Larson as the odds on favorites to take half of those four spots in the final round, but the other two were wide open. But, over the last two months, it appears that this may be a…

Fords Lacking Speed With Possible Aero Deficiency Now

NASCAR is a sport where everyone evolves. It’s a game of cat and mouse. One team or one manufacturer is good in their peak, while another one struggles. Then, shortly after, the script flips.
