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....

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...

Are NASCAR Drivers Good Role Models?
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...

C’Mon NASCAR: Is the car really a weapon?
Mike Harper - SOZ

Lost in all of the controversy of the Austin Dillon – Cole Custer incident from the Xfinity race at Phoenix is NASCAR’s use of a new word to describe the act of retaliation.  After Custer wrecked Dillon, an angry Dillon retaliated on the track with his car. Since the incident the media has concentrated on Dillon’s non-penalty and scolded NASCAR for not acting after one of their executives said a day before the race, “We’re very clear that we’re not...

NASCAR Embraces Their Stereotype
Dennis Michelsen

NASCAR Embraces Their Stereotype NASCAR just sent a dangerous precedent by not having some sort of punishment against Kyle Busch. They also made a statement about how the value of the entertainment is more important than having law and order at the race track. Its almost as if NASCAR brass decided that the best thing for their brand is to go 100% World Wrestling Entertainment. NASCAR is embracing their stereotype in an attempt to boost ratings and attendance. What Happened...

Does Kyle Busch Have Friends?
Mike Harper - SOZ

I’m watching an angry Kyle Busch walk down pit road to find Joey Logano. Kyle is fuming that he was wrecked going into the last turn on the last lap by Joey.  Once found, without hesitation, Kyle throws a punch at Joey and Joey’s crew pounces on Kyle. This picture isn’t new but in the case of Kyle Busch, it’s odd. He was basically alone except for one crew member and a fleeing PR representative. (Note: A second crew member...

Fantasy Insight- Brickyard 400 Edition
Dennis Michelsen

Fantasy Insight- Brickyard 400 Edition Handicapping a NASCAR race is very similar to handicapping a horse race. Some drivers are “Horses for Courses” performing better at certain lengths or styles of tracks. By incorporating three basic ingredients in a special formula based on statistical analysis of 15 years of racing data the Pro Power Ratings have been developed. Just like Beyers Figures in horse racing the best pick is not always the highest rated competitor but reaching threshold values narrows...
