Sometimes it is not the volume or intensity of a squabble which makes news. Sometimes it is the person who is doing the squabbling.
Such as last weekend in Charlotte when Jeff Burton laid into Kyle Busch after the Coca-Cola 600.
Race fans expect angry encounters between Busch and people like Kevin […]

The pole was the second of the season for Busch, who is second in series points, 29 behind Kevin Harvick. His other pole came at Richmond International Raceway on May […]

Jeff Burton met with the media on Friday for the first time since his confrontation with Kyle Busch in the pits at Charlotte Motor Speedway last Sunday.
Here is an excerpt from Burton’s press conference:
WHAT IS YOUR PERSPECTIVE ON THE INCIDENT WITH KYLE BUSCH AND HAVE YOU SPOKE WITH HIM?:  “We haven’t talked, not because I’m […]

Minter: RIP, Mercury

The news this week that Ford is dropping the Mercury line that has for years produced cars for people who wanted a little more than a Ford but not as much as a Lincoln brings to mind the 1970s in NASCAR, when the “Big Cars” still ruled the roost in the series now known as […]

Minter: Welcome To Era Of Disposable Cars

By Rick Minter | Senior Writer

It’s been interesting to observe the way crashes are handled in NASCAR garage these days. The cars themselves have become almost expendable in the interest of excitement. More later on the drivers aboard them.
Before a car wrecked in practice or qualifying is ever dragged all the way into the garage […]

Kurt Busch, Too, Has Matured Into A Contender

One of the most hammered upon stories of the year as been the maturation process of Kyle Busch. You know: He is racing so much better in 2010 because he has a new attitude – a more mature attitude.

Fox Sports wrapped up its share of the NASCAR season with last Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600, handing the mike off to TNT this weekend at Pocono.
After six races on TNT, ESPN takes over for the rest of the season (except when the races are on ABC. Yes, it gets confusing, but […]

Woody: The Double Bonus Is Big Baloney

We keep hearing about some sort of $20 million bonus that might be in the works for any driver who wins the Indy 500 and Coca-Cola 600 in the same day.
That’s a lot of baloney.
Expensive baloney, granted – but still baloney.
It was a goofy ideal back in years past when […]

Woody: Busch Better Heed Burton

By Larry Woody | Senior Writer

I’ve followed Jeff Burton’s career ever since he ran his first Cup race in 1993 and I’ve never known a more likable, mild-mannered and easy-going driver.
He has a reputation as a racer who takes his lumps and never complains.
That’s why it was so stunning to see Burton heatedly confront Kyle […]
