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...

Is NASCAR Still Bigger Than The Drivers?
Mike Harper - SOZ

I remember the days when the very first thing to do each morning was to visit the JAYSKI web site to find out what the latest rumors were in NASCAR. Back then the “Silly Season Site” was truly the must read for driver rumors. Even drivers used the site to find out about other drivers or rumors about themselves. And while the JAYSKI site is still very relevant to this day and a must visit for me, the silly season...

Bubba Wallace Could Lose Ride… So What
Dennis Michelsen

Bubba Wallace Could Lose Ride… So What This week we heard that NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Darrell Bubba Wallace Jr’s season might be in jeopardy if the team doesn’t find additional sponsorship very soon. Also this week I learned the effectiveness of the words “So What” when used by AP Writer Jenna Fryer so I decided to borrow it. Whenever I see a young racer’s potential in this sport hurt by the lack of sponsors instead of that driver’s talent...

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...

Should NASCAR and Texas Motor Speedway Apologize?
Mike Harper - SOZ

Sadly a new chapter in NASCAR was opened this past weekend at Texas Motor Speedway and without the watchful eye of a fellow Texan, we may not have even heard about it. The sad reality is NASCAR and my home track Texas Motor Speedway lost a small group of fans who I’ve been told will now watch the Texas races on TV or will look for alternate vacation destinations as the sport continues to pave a new path in search...

Disappointment in NASCAR is Bigger in Texas
Dennis Michelsen

Disappointment in NASCAR is Bigger in Texas Couch Potato Corner- Texas Motor Speedway They always say that everything in bigger in Texas and this weekend they really were proven to be right. Every time a race track is repaved we have seen uncertainty and often single file racing. But the experts at Texas Motor Speedway thought they had an idea that would work better. They changed the banking in turns 1 and 2 and kept the banking the same in...
