Leave it to Kyle Busch to attempt a pass on the high side going into a corner where NO ONE passes on the high side… and then blame the other guy when said pass predictably backfires…
Jimmie Johnson–not giving a single fuck–takes his smoking car 3 wide into the turn to try and take the lead in the last few laps of the Brickyard 400. And wrecks.
It doesn’t matter that it didn’t work. This was badass as hell.
We say we want guys to go all-out for wins. Well, what’s more going all-out for a win than going three-wide at a track where three-wide NEVER works, while your car’s smoking, to try taking the lead with two laps to go?
Jimmie don’t care. Jimmie wanted to win.
These guys LOVE this sport. They KNOW this sport. This will be one of, if not the most popular win of the year.
I started rooting for Brad back when he drove for JR Motorsports. I loved his style behind the wheel and how he didn’t take any crap from the Cup boys.
I’ve always liked Joey Logano… and I contend to this day that leaving Joe Gibbs Racing was the best thing to ever happen to him.
Come on, who doesn’t like Awesome Chase from the Same Place (kids, ask your dad what that means)?
Daniel Suarez is one hell of a wheelman; I’m convinced he’s gonna be one of NASCAR’s biggest stars come three years’ time.
Back in 2008, I started making an effort to start latching myself onto younger, up-and-coming drivers. Why?
Well… between Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Carl Edwards, and now Dale Earnhardt Jr., we’re at that point the sport has always faced where the “old guard” starts stepping aside.
I miss seeing Gordon and Stewart race, and I’m gonna miss Junior, but based solely on the talent emerging in the Cup Series and coming up through the ranks elsewhere, I think NASCAR will be just fine.
This is part of why I love watching the Camping World Truck and Xfinity Series; aside from just being awesome series (and more racing!), you get to see who’s waiting in the wings, and you can find the next generation of drivers to root for… because your Cup favorite won’t be racing forever.
