If you are reading this, then my big hope for 2011 has been realized. And I sincerely thank you.
RacinToday.com is heading into its third year of publication. I guess the cliched thing to say about that is something like, “Gee, we really didn’t think we would make it through one year.”
But we kind of did. […]
It amazes me how many sports fans and media have what seem to be super human powers of recollection. They remember in astonishing detail what happened to which driver in races that occurred decades ago.
They’ll sit around bottle-strewn tables at restaurants and bistros, or huddle in small groups in infield press centers and debate the […]
A little of the gloss is off the rose known as Danica Patrick after a difficult and disappointing season.
Not only did the IndyCar glamour girl slip from fifth to 10th in the open-wheel points – her worst finish since finishing 12th as a rookie in 2005 – but Patrick’s first foray into stock car racing […]

That’s not to suggest Dixon single-handedly took down the three-team juggernaut fielded by Don Schumacher Racing. In addition to his own bad self, Dixon’s drive to a third title was orchestrated by […]
Think the No. 48 team isn’t serious about making it six straight Sprint Cup championships?
Crew chief Chad Knaus already has the band back together. Last Monday and Tuesday, he had his team at some track somewhere to start prepping for next year. That’s right, testing for 2011 just three days after being honored as 2010 […]
There was quite a spirited debate last week over who should take the honor of 2010 Driver of the Year.
About half the 20 panelists – all among the top motorsports writers and broadcasters in the U.S. – took part in a teleconference to debate the merits of the most deserving drivers before secretly casting their […]
Three years ago, it appeared doubtful drag racing icon John Force would ever race again following a horrific wreck during an NHRA Funny Car run in Texas nearly killed him.
Force not only recovered from serious foot and leg injuries to return in 2008, he went on at age 61 to win the 2010 Funny Car […]
