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...

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...

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...
