Hot 20 – A Southern night with the lady in black at Darlington

With the Southern 500 coming our way from Darlington this weekend, it seems like a good time to talk about tradition. The first one in the books was back in 1950, making it the oldest of the sport’s iconic events. Most of the time, it goes to someone who is in or will be in, the Hall of Fame. That number will only grow once Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson get in, along with a few other contenders I can think of.

Hot 20 – Watkins Glen is another chance to win, but most are just as desperate to find money

Money, it makes the world go round. So I’m told, anyway. While you and I might remain in perpetual financial darkness, the stock markets would seem to indicate that those on top of the heap are reeling it in.

NASCAR Top-10 Power Rankings: Daytona

1. Kyle Larson: Larson crashed on Lap 193 in the Coke Zero 400 when he slipped in front of Ricky Stenhouse Jr., and the impact briefly sent Larson airborne. Larson finished 20th.

The Final Word – Tradition is fine, but at Sonoma some followed their own course on that road

Gentlemen, start your engines. That is what was customarily said prior to races, but no longer. You probably thought that was due to a woman being in the field. Nope. There are just not enough gentlemen. Just ask Danica Patrick.

The Final Word – Larson wins on a Michigan Fathers’ Day as Bowyer slips down the ladder

Popular. Iconic. A “must be in” race. If that is what you were looking for, you were disappointed. A 37-car field was the smallest in 21 years. Tight, pack racing, the kind that leaves you swooning each and every lap. If that is what you were looking for, sorry, Sonoma is coming up next weekend. No, this week it was Michigan.

Hot 20 – Heading to Michigan, Danica would top this chart if it were not based on performance

You would think it would be great to be Danica Patrick. After Pocono, she might be thinking it would be far easier to be Kyle Busch.

NASCAR Top-10 Power Rankings: Charlotte

1. Martin Truex, Jr.: Truex led 233 laps and won Stage 2 on his way to a third-place finish in the Coca-Cola 600. "That's the third consecutive year I've led the most laps in the Coke 600," Truex said, "and all I have to show for it is one win and a lousy t-shirt."

Almirola Released from Hospital after Violent Wreck

Aric Almirola has been released from the University of Kansas Medical Center after suffering a compression fracture to his T5 Vertebra in a vicious three-car wreck late in the Go Bowling 400 at Kansas Speedway.

The View From My Recliner — Reality of Racing

Tonight I don't care about the laser inspection. Tonight I don't care about loose lug nuts. Tonight, I care about the well-being of Aric Almirola.

The Final Word – Talladega, the track most drivers seem to hate but most fans love

So, let us talk about Talladega. We had Ricky Stenhouse Jr. start on the pole. Then we had a race full of excitement with a host of “oh, my God, did you see that?” moments. That pretty much covers the highlights from the opening 168 laps. It was as thrilling as I had hoped, but this one came down to the final 30 circuits on that big track.
