Connor Ferguson - Apr 6, 2020

We looked back at an Eldora Kings Royal last week, so I wanted to take time to reminisce about an old Knoxville Nationals this week. I figured the first one to take a look at was the best one I’ve seen in my lifetime – Jason Johnson’s 2016 Knoxville Nationals victory over Donny Schatz. It […]

In an unprecedented abeyance of sports in the United States amid efforts to control the COVID-19 outbreak across the country, iRacing is all the rage. Providing a subtle, relative return to normalcy, watching virtual racing has become must-see TV in a world craving for televised, live sports where the result isn’t known. The World of […]

When Steve Kinser, Sammy Swindell, and Doug Wolfgang were competing in the same race during the 1980’s, it was almost unthinkable that one of them wouldn’t win it. Kinser stuck to racing the full Outlaws slate most years of the decade, while Swindell and Wolfgang ran at other tracks as opposed to the entirety of […]

For my second story of these racing re-watch articles, I wanted to challenge myself a little bit. I wanted it to be an old sprint car race, but I hadn’t narrowed it down quite yet on which one to choose. I checked out the DirtVision Vault – an online collection of classic races that fans […]

One year after Helio Castronoves’ record-tying fourth Indy 500 victory, IndyCar returns to the oval at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the 106th running of the Indianapolis 500-Mile Race. After a long two weeks of testing, practice and qualifying, the race known as “The Greatest Spectacle In Racing” is finally upon us. For the 106th […]

Five hundred feet. Ryan Blaney was roughly 500 feet from taking the checkered flag, Sunday, at Texas Motor Speedway, when the caution flew for Ricky Stenhouse Jr. hitting the wall in Turn 2. Unlike a normal race weekend, the All-Star Race must finish under green. Even by NASCAR standards, this edition of the All-Star Race was […]

After Sunday’s race, I’m driving to Kansas Speedway to cover its NASCAR Cup Series playoff race in September. The Advent Health 400 gave us 23XI Racing’s best overall performance, outside of a restrictor plate race. Moreover, a bunch of drivers cut their left-rear tires. Finally, I think it’s safe to say the NextGen car has […]

Kurt Busch stopped his car down pit road at Kansas Speedway, where 23XI Racing team owner Denny Hamlin reached into his car to embrace and congratulate him. “It’s huge,” Hamlin said. “I’m so proud of Kurt and Bubba (Wallace) as well.

Well, what do I say? This year’s GMR Grand Prix was the craziest race I have seen in my time watching IndyCar. With on and off rain and plenty of cautions, Colton Herta pulled through to capture his first win of the 2022 season. Finally… Rain! Plenty of IndyCar fans waited anxiously for the series’ first […]

IndyCar returns to the historic Indianapolis Motor Speedway for this year’s running of the GMR Grand Prix, one of two races on the Indy Road Course and the sight of Rinus Veekay’s surprising win in 2021.

I felt like a kid, again, as I watched William Byron run his throwback scheme in the lead at Darlington Raceway. Driving an homage to Jeff Gordon’s DuPont flames car, Sunday, Byron edged out Joey Logano on the final restart, and put him in the wall in Turn 2. “We were really close off of (Turn) […]
