Should NASCAR Ban Heckling?
Mike Harper - SOZ

Booing and heckling has been a part of sports for as long as most of us can remember. Heck, as a young sports fan in Houston, I did my fair share of heckling and while it never got personal, I did try my best to get inside the mind of an opposing player in an attempt to get his mind off the game. Yes, every once and a while I was the beneficiary of a death stare from a player....

NASCAR Invents New Definition for Insanity
Dennis Michelsen

NASCAR Invents New Definition for Insanity The new and improved (?) NASCAR schedule for 2018 is out and the folks in Daytona have sure shaken things up. Even stranger than all of the strange changes are the fact that so many covering the sport are applauding NASCAR for trying something to add excitement to the series. Good old Albert Einstein famously said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results.” Apparently these new NASCAR changes...

What Happened to Richmond (or Is It NASCAR)
Dennis Michelsen

What Happened to Richmond (or Is It NASCAR) Couch Potato Corner- Richmond When I hear the NASCAR announcers talking about “Clean Air” and “Great Racing in the Pack” at a speedway I have no issue with that because in today’s NASCAR this is what we have come to expect. But when these phrases are used at a short track in NASCAR there is something seriously wrong with your aerodynamic and engine packages. It isn’t rocket science folks just a few...

Mike Harper - SOZ

It’s the 2017 Rap Crap List! A role model as defined by Dictionary.com is “a person whose behavior, example, or success is or can be emulated by others, especially by younger people.” At every NASCAR race you will find children in the stands. And for many adult NASCAR fans, sharing the experience of race weekend with their children is a beloved tradition, passed down from their parents. According to Nielsen Scarborough, one of the country’s largest marketing research firms, 2...

But Does Dale Earnhardt Jr Qualify as a Legend?
Dennis Michelsen

But Does Dale Earnhardt Jr Qualify as a Legend? Over the past few weeks I have seen headlines about a “Legendary Comic” and “Legendary Musician” who had passed away and while I do not live in a cave I had never heard of either man. In this day and age we do throw the word “Legend” around more loosely than we did years ago. Yesterday shortly after the news broke that Dale Earnhardt Jr was announcing that this would be...

Would Carl Edwards Replace Darrell Waltrip at FOX?
Mike Harper - SOZ

For NASCAR, it has been a tough path to gain traction in the television ratings this season. For FOX Sports, the same path has led them to experience this season three of the lowest rated Cup races dating back to 2001. Texas, Fontana and Phoenix provided historically low ratings and according to Sports Media Watch, the 2017 Texas television ratings, “tied as the lowest in the 20-year history of the spring Texas race.” They also stated the Texas race “was...
