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...

NASCAR and Martinsville Put on a Show
Dennis Michelsen

NASCAR and Martinsville Put on a Show Couch Potato Corner- Martinsville Speedway This has been a weird year for NASCAR so far. While the racing has been average at best the entertainment value of the shows has been pretty good. Finally we got great racing to go with a great show and all it took was for NASCAR to go back to their roots to get this done. Martinsville Speedway never disappoints because even if the leader does drive away...

Monster Slip of the Ahem
Dennis Michelsen

Monster Slip of the Ahem Couch Potato Corner- California Speedway About the only thing predictable in NASCAR nowadays is that there will be nothing much that is predictable. The racing on the track has been OK; just OK not terrific but worthy enough of our attention. There are issues with the aero package that gives the lead car a huge advantage at any track where aerodynamics matter. The cars have never been more equal but somehow the leader is able...

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...

Where Have the NASCAR Critics Gone?
Mike Harper - SOZ

Statement about the future of the Thunder Crew Radio Show is at the bottom of this column… If you’ve followed NASCAR over the past five years you know without a doubt the times have changed. As I mentioned in ‘Did NASCAR Push Carl Edwards Away?’ the industry will continue to get smaller.  It’s not all bad and it’s not all NASCAR’s fault.  For example, the Internet and economic challenges from several years ago killed print media.  This caused the job...
