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. Continue reading “What’s Ahead in 2016”

The 2015 Revival

Teams are packing up to head to Daytona International Speedway in less than two weeks for more exciting racing during SpeedWeeks.

2014 Fan Favorite Driver Contest

Garrett will also be picking the races, he writes for his own blog (racingtothecheckered.blogspot.com). The third new race picker will be a fan. Β  Continue reading “What’s To Come in 2013”
