There’s losing with grace, and then there’s Elliott Sadler tonight, who narrowly missed out on the NASCAR Xfinity Series championship at Homestead-Miami tonight. Sadler was especially frustrated with Ryan Preece, who he made contact with on track trying to get by. So, he tried to pick a fight with Preece on pit lane.
It’s hard to explain how experiencing NASCAR’s infield can completely change a person’s understanding the sport. The garage and pit road transform from areas that were once shown in passing by television broadcasts and squinted at through binoculars, to privates window into the inner workings of racing.
NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Jeremy Clements had an unlikely first win in more ways than one. Clements had never won in his 256 Xfinity Series starts. When his No. 51 car spun out into Matt Tifft’s No. 19 car on the penultimate lap of Sunday’s race at Road America, the race still wasn’t over. Clements kept going to…
Before even half of the field could cross the start/finish line at today’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race in Kentucky, there’s already been a wreck. Come on guys, this is the easy part.
Retaliation! It’s the word of the day from today’s NASCAR Xfinity Series Dash 4 Cash race at Phoenix. Full-time Xfinity driver Cole Custer collided with Cup Series regular Austin Dillon, putting Dillon’s car in the wall and collecting Ryan Sieg’s car in the process. So, Dillon drove right into Custer’s car under…
A tire on the No. 16 of Ryan Reed went down, and his loss of control set off a chain-reaction of events that led to Jordan Anderson’s car setting ablaze.
Hey Joey, what’s happening? Well, uh, rumor around town says you might be thinkin’ about going down to the pits. You know, swap out wheels, fuel the car, maybe watch the car catch fire, and change into that Def Leppard t-shirt.
NASCAR’s lower-tier Xfinity and Camping World races are theoretically designed to feature up-and-coming talent, but are frustratingly often won by top-level Sprint Cup champs like Kyle Busch. Doesn’t seem to make a lot of sense, but NASCAR is finally fixing it.
Most of the drivers who qualified for the Chase for the Championship in each of NASCAR’s top-three series have had terrible luck since the Chase races started. Seriously. With this kind of bad luck, it’s surprising that they qualified for the championship races in the first place.
Bubba Wallace’s No. 6 Ford Mustang stock car overheated during today’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Road America, and decided it wanted to become an old-timey steam train instead.
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.
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.
‘Dega! It’s legendary for a reason, and much of that reason is the insanity of restrictor plate racing. Everyone’s as aggressive as possible to finish well at one of NASCAR’s most famous tracks, which often leads to chaos. Bonus: after a last-lap review, today’s winner wasn’t who everyone thought it would be.
Finally, someone competing in the Xfinity Series wins an Xfinity race this year. Full-time Xfinity driver Erik Jones took home the $100,000 check today at Bristol after a crazy four-laps-to-go restart that featured a crazy back-and-forth fight for the top of the podium.
If you’ve never seen a car set up for a banked oval up close before, it’s fascinating to see just how much of the car is set up to help it turn in one direction. Here’s a few interesting little details from NASCAR’s weekend at Texas Motor Speedway.
When NASCAR driver Kyle Busch can leave his tires in giant clouds of smoke, you know he has ample celebratory burnout experience. Tonight marked a record eighth Xfinity Series win at Texas Motor Speedway, giving Busch a total of 160 wins in all NASCAR’s top three series. We’re just as used to seeing him do burnouts as…
Two of NASCAR’s biggest stars—Danica Patrick and Kyle Busch—received penalties today from NASCAR’s weekend at Auto Club Speedway. Patrick’s penalty is a clear message that NASCAR wants no one to ever walk towards the track itself, and Busch’s may involve something else he said. (Big “may.”)
For the second year in a row, a swarm of bees managed to cause a fuss during NASCAR weekend in Fontana, California. If anything, bee infestations at race tracks give the whole “need for speed” thing a much different meaning.
Just over a week ago, NASCAR forgot what it is. A brief moment of confusion led to a lot of not-so-great changes for the series, including an overhaul of the championship formats in both of its top developmental series and a caution clock. A clock. Try to cough that one out. But if NASCAR wants to be like baseball or…
