Technically, summer has been here for a few weeks now but lots of time has passed between when I wrote this and when you’re reading it. Now that I’m not traveling to races, finishing up the school year or studying like crazy, I finally have the opportunity to reflect on the awesome experience I had at the Drive for Autism Celebrity Golf Tournament.

As always, it was a wild and crazy weekend at Talladega. Sunday’s Aaron’s 499 proved to be as exciting as ever, as drivers constantly were running two to three wide around the 2.66-mile superspeedway. Sometimes dissecting Talladega races is just as much fun as watching them. This week, the Trackside Duo does just that as they give plenty of opinions regarding what went down at ‘Dega.

The wound from last September’s Richmond race will never fully-heal for Michael Waltrip Racing. As much as the team would like to forget their actions from the race, the memory will never fully fade away. However, with the right mindset this team will more than likely move on from the ordeal. MWR is optimistic for 2014.Clint Bowyer is determined to get back to victory lane after a year’s absence and Brian Vickers is set to make his return to full-time Sprint Cup Series racing. The team has no reason not be excited as they have a great shot at success again this season. Continue reading “Smaller but Fiercer Michael Waltrip Racing Ready for 2014”

My Take on the MWR Ordeal

After letting the Michael Waltrip Racing penalty sink in for a day, it still hasn’t sunk in. The size of this penalty is astronomical. Never before seen and then some, is how I would describe the overall situation. Trying to manipulate the end of the race is a clear no-no in NASCAR’s eyes and they assessed it to the best of their ability. Could they have issued it a little differently? Sure, but in the fashion they actually did hand it out in has sent volumes beyond the NASCAR world. Continue reading “My Take on the MWR Ordeal”

The underdog organization that proved they can be successful and get to victory lane will be back for more in 2013. Ever since MWR signed Clint Bowyer, it has been an up-hill ride. Bowyer was the best free agent after 2011 and he landed at a team that was still trying to prove themselves and with Bowyer, they did. Bowyer brought the organization three wins, a Chase birth and a second place finish in the standings, not bad. In 2013, Bowyer and Martin Truex Jr will look to better their performances from the previous year and attempt to bring a championship home to MWR.

Clint Bowyer

Mr. Redneck or Mr. Bowyer, whichever you prefer calling him, will be trying to bring some laughs to NASCAR fans along with trying to better his performance from a year ago. Going into last season, no one expected Bowyer to be as good as he was in his first season at MWR but, he proved us wrong and had a phenomenal season. Three wins was the most for MWR in a single season since the team opened operations and Bowyer was the one to set that record last season. 2013 will surely be exciting for Bowyer as he strives for more success.
