Nearly a decade later, the changes NASCAR has implemented over the last four years are beginning to pay off. As excitement soars, the on-track product is improved, and the competition level reaches new heights, a new era has dawned for the sport. Read the rest of this entry

What’s Ahead in 2016

 

GEICO 500As the engines sit quiet in race shops and the high banks of Daytona International Speedway await the return of the thunderous pack of cars, final preparations are made for the 2016 season.

The upcoming year has the potential to be the most thrilling and intense season NASCAR has seen in quite some time. Through the implementation of the low-downforce package, abundance of rookie contenders and the third year of the new Chase for the Sprint Cup format; 2016 has the making to be epic.

Entering my twelfth year as a fan, I have never been more excited for the season to come. Why? It comes from a combination of the factors described above and knowing NASCAR is in a great position as the energy that once defined the sport returns. Read the rest of this entry

While the format can be questioned, nothing about what Busch pulled off in 2015 came easy, making the glory of a championship that much more sweet. When you take away the format and look at Busch’s performance – it’s difficult not to appreciate what he accomplished. Read the rest of this entry
