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) […]

Exiting Turn 4, Ross Chastain ran third. When he crossed the finish line, he won. Though he wasn’t sure of it. “I knew I was coming to the checkered,” he said. “I crossed the line. They were all slowing down. I was like, Did we win? Like, we won? Everybody is slowing down. I was […]

BRISTOL, Tenn. — Track workers crept along the lines in the dirt left by the water truck to inspect the surface. Meanwhile, the truck drove clockwise around the track and shot a stream of water out toward the wall. On the backstretch, it dropped down a lane and repeated the process. Some laps, it shot […]

NASCAR’s return to Circuit of the Americas left us with some morsels about which to talk. Ross Chastain‘s journey to victory lane in the NASCAR Cup Series gives those who yearn for a blue collar driver a horse onto which to hook their cart. Furthermore, Circuit of the Americas got a fair shake to prove […]

None of you asked for it, but hop aboard as I break down the massive penalty handed to Brad Keselowski‘s team. News analysis: Brad Keselowski penalty The news NASCAR levied an L2-level penalty on Keselowski’s No. 6 Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing Ford, Thursday, for violations of Sections 14.1 and 14.5 in the NASCAR Rule Book, which […]

Forty-six lead changes. Sunday’s Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 set a new track record for most lead changes in a race at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Given this was a restrictor plate race, that’s not surprising. On paper, it delivered the results that former NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France wanted. As a staunch defender of […]

Entering the 2018 season, NASCAR sat in a precarious spot. In the span of three seasons, five Cup Series drivers — Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Carl Edwards, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Matt Kenseth — hanged up the helmet. That’s a combined 235 victories and eight championships that retired in such a short span. Compounding the […]

NASCAR pushed all its chips to the center of the table and won the pot, three races into the 2022 season. Sunday’s Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway gave us much to discuss. Ross Chastain (possibly) had his breakout NASCAR Cup Series race with a dominant drive and podium finish. Alex Bowman inches closer and […]

Chase Elliott probably wants to block this day from memory. Coming into Sunday’s race at Auto Club Speedway, Elliott had a goose egg in the win column; his best finish being fourth. Elliott struggled early and hit the wall in Turn 4 on Lap 33. He hit it, again, two laps later and spun out […]

The NASCAR Cup Series heads to Auto Club Speedway on Sunday for the first time in over 700 days. It has been 728 days since the NASCAR Cup Series took the green flag at the Auto Club Speedway. One of the biggest changes in the series since the last time they raced at Auto Club […]

Sixty-seven laps. Brad Keselowski led a race-high of 67 laps, Sunday, at Daytona International Speedway. He ran all but three laps inside the top-15 and maintained an average position of 4.8. Of course, with seven combined wins at Daytona and Talladega Superspeedway, you wouldn’t expect less from one of NASCAR’s all-time best restrictor plate racers. […]

Tucker White - Feb 6, 2022

What a kickoff to a new season of NASCAR! Joey Logano took the checkered flag of a much hyped Busch Light Clash, Sunday, at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. It re-energized an exhibition event that grew stale for the last few years in Daytona. It also made an excellent case for introducing heats and last-chance […]

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Kyle Larson, decked out a suit and bowtie, attended a party at The Joseph. Inside a penthouse suite of the top floor of the luxury hotel stood dignitaries from Goodyear, Hendrick Motorsports and NASCAR, all dressed in their best formal attire. In one corner of the room laid a table with kobe beef […]

Sometimes, the best game stories are the ones that don’t see the light of day. Mike Wilson, Tennessee athletics beat writer for the Knoxville News Sentinel, told my sportswriting class that. Though in the case of 2021, I think we got the best story. As a peek behind the curtain, I wrote four championship columns, […]

Kyle Larson rode around Phoenix Raceway, with tears streaming from his red eyes. He grabbed the championship flag, burned his tires down and performed a Polish victory lap, where he dropped the flag on the backstretch. He hopped out of his car and hugged every member of his crew. “I can’t — I cannot believe […]

Tucker White - Nov 7, 2021

A year and a half ago, Kyle Larson dropped a racial slur in an iRacing event. The next day, NASCAR indefinitely suspended him and his sponsors departed one after another. The day after, Chip Ganassi Racing fired him. In the span of less than 48 hours, Larson’s NASCAR career slammed head-on into a wall. “After […]
