We’ve long broadcast our admiration for Fox Deportes NASCAR announcers Tony Rivera and Luis Rodriguez—the network even blurbed us in a promo—and Rivera once again turned in a terrific performance in calling the bump-and-grind final lap of yesterday’s race at Sonoma.
Sonoma Raceway proved once again why it’s one of the most interesting races on the NASCAR Sprint Cup schedule. Holy crap, the last lap delivered.
A nasty electrical fire took Clint Bowyer out early from today’s Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway. Nothing has encapsulated the term “nope” more than Bowyer’s quick exit and helmet toss following this particularly grody-smelling car-b-que.
We’re riding along with Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin in the pace car this morning, so why not come along with us? Let’s take a quick lap of Sonoma Raceway, one of the few road courses on the NASCAR Sprint Cup calendar.
The poor little bunny—er, large jackrabbit—“came out of nowhere” and left a huge blood splatter all over the front end of Kyle Busch’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race car in practice on Friday. While it wasn’t caught on the broadcast, Busch’s description of the events is pretty funny.
Tonight’s NASCAR truck race near St. Louis was already running late after a rain delay and several wrecks, but it was one with just seven laps remaining that brought Spencer Gallagher and John Wes Townley to fisticuffs. Rubbin’ (fists) is racin’!
The shock! The horror! The surprise! Eh, this turning in both directions thing happens a couple times a year, when NASCAR visits the road courses of Watkins Glen and Sonoma Raceway. I’m here checking out the race, which rules, because road courses are always some of the most fun NASCAR races to watch.
While leaving a Rascal Flatts concert on Friday, three men reportedly assaulted NASCAR veteran Mike Wallace. Per FOX Sports, Wallace’s daughter took kicks to the ribs in attempts to shield him from being kicked while unconscious. Police arrested the men over the weekend, all released on bonds of around $1,000.
A loose groundhog with little groundhog balls of steel halted NASCAR Xfinity Series practice at Michigan International Speedway this afternoon. This groundhog didn’t care about the cars on track, the track’s trucks arriving to haul him off, or that guy with the shovel. Groundhogs have no fear.
Brad Keselowski’s car was held in the pits longer than his crew would have hoped at Pocono Raceway this afternoon thanks to a fender slam by one of his crew members that got caught by NASCAR officials. NASCAR told them to put the fender back, and the crew was just like, “What? No.”
The reason why this six-year-old Camry costs as much as a used McLaren is simple: it’s not exactly a Camry. It’s a custom-built SEMA special complete with a NASCAR V8.
The “All-Star” event in any sport is a special one, since the best competitors get to battle it out with not much at stake but their pride. NASCAR has one also, and they try to make the race unique by using a new, oddball format each year. This year was so bad, though, that not even competitors knew what was going on.
This year’s NASCAR Sprint Cup All-Star Race may be a little hard to follow, especially with the caution at the end of the first segment. Fortunately, driver and grand marshal for the night Tony Stewart isn’t one to mince words about things when he’s unhappy.
The NASCAR Sprint Cup All-Star Race is always a little confusing, as the format changes almost every year. We spoke with 2015 winner Denny Hamlin ahead of Saturday’s All-Star Race, and he’s okay rolling with the changes.
There’s something about a 30-ton, 40-foot car-crushing robot dinosaur that’s bound to get our attention. Meet your new (old) friend Robosaurus. He’s back, and he may just be the most over-the-top trackside attraction I’ve ever seen.
The Monster Mile of Dover International Speedway may have been a monster flop in television viewership, per Sports Media Watch. Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race on Fox Sports 1 earned the race’s lowest Nielsen rating in a decade.
A gear failed on Danica Patrick’s Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet during NASCAR Sprint Cup practice at Dover International Speedway today, sending driver Jamie McMurray and Patrick’s team owner Tony Stewart into an unprotected hard wall. That’s worrying for Stewart, who is still recovering from a back injury.
This is one of single-seater feeder series Formula 3's biggest weekends: Pau. Unfortunately for ex-Formula One, ex-NASCAR, World Endurance Championship racer and reigning Formula E champion Nelson Piquet Jr., the FIA barred him from participating due to his immense experience.
