Why I Still Love NASCAR (Despite It’s Flaws)
Dennis Michelsen

Why I Still Love NASCAR (Despite It’s Flaws) The month of February is here and to some people that means Ground Hog Day weather predictions. Others look forward to the day for lovers being guilted into buying jewelry to make up for 364 days of being an idiot. The month of February to me as always meant the arrival of the NASCAR season. This crazy brand of All American racing has been through many changes over the years with not...

Should NASCAR hire a VP of Common Sense?
Mike Harper - SOZ

Have you found yourself over the past few years, especially this season, shaking your head at some of the decisions being made by NASCAR and their driver and owner counsels? I have and even though some NASCAR insiders and media like to paint a rosy picture of the sport, we know if you’re being honest with yourself, it’s certainly not rosy. It’s not the end of the sport – but rosy it’s not. Colin Cowherd, host of The Herd on...

Should Danica and NASCAR be Nervous?
Mike Harper - SOZ

Buried underneath the controversies of stage racing and Monster Energy girls we find one of NASCAR’s most popular drivers stuck in the middle of a confusing lawsuit. Without getting into all of the legalities – Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) sued Nature’s Bakery for $31 million for a breach of their contract. In return, Nature’s Bakery has submitted a counterclaim providing details on why they terminated the contract. I find those details surrounding the case interesting and somewhat troubling. First, to keep...

Was the Daytona 500 Rigged?
Mike Harper - SOZ

Social media went crazy after Kurt Busch won the 59th running of the Daytona 500. Surprisingly it wasn’t because angry fans dislike Kurt Busch, but because his sponsor Monster Energy is also the title sponsor for the Cup Series – NASCAR’s elite racing series. Before I give you a truthful and serious answer to the “rigged” question, allow me to address the following questions from the Daytona 500 weekend; Did Brian France really lose it during the drivers meeting? It’s...

Is Shaming Fans Good for NASCAR?
Mike Harper - SOZ

Call me crazy but I thought fans were important to NASCAR. How many times in the past did we hear “without the fans we couldn’t do what we love to do” when drivers or other NASCAR personalities talked specifically about the fan base? I would imagine having and retaining fans would be an important component to the success of the sport, which has me perplexed (I said it) on why NASCAR would allow employees and the sport’s paid media to...

NASCAR Fans Whining Worse Than Democrats
Dennis Michelsen

NASCAR Fans Whining Worse Than Democrats What has become of the NASCAR fan base? We used to complain about things that really mattered but this week we seem to be turning into a bunch of whiners. After weeks of moaning about the new sponsor Monster Energy Drink not doing enough to engage with NASCAR fans, the first time they do ANYTHING some fans felt obligated to whine. JAYSKI the Gold Standard for NASCAR websites changes its format and that is...

NASCAR Screwed Up Again
Dennis Michelsen

NASCAR Screwed Up Again Good, Bad and the Ugly: Preseason Edition Over the years as a NASCAR fan I have gotten used to changes. The cars change, the driver lineups change and the rules change from year to year. But the changes before this upcoming season have been Silly Season on steroids! This year RaceTalkRadio is also undergoing plenty of changes and one of them is the return of the famous (Or is the right term “infamous”) “Good, Bad and...
