Victory Lap: NASCAR Week In Review, 10-01-2012

Brad Keselowski entered this season with tons of unrealized long-term potential in the Sprint Cup Series. Three races into this season’s Chase for the Sprint Cup, Keselowski is already beginning to realize that potential, having taken his second win of the playoffs at Dover to cap off the past week in NASCAR. The biggest news [...]

Keselowski Conquers the Monster Mile

The Chase is all about winning and you’ll need a few wins to win the championship and now Brad Keselowski has two wins, three races into the Chase. Keselowski didn’t lead a single lap until there were ten laps to go but Keselowski brought home the victory.

Stewart's almost full race behind now

Everyone knew that the race at Dover International Speedway, unless something truly had changed, was going to be a huge obstacle for Tony Stewart. Honestly, for him to come out of there with a 20th-place finish last Sunday, that's really his best Dover finish in quite a while. Now, though, the defending series champion finds himself well behind points leader Brad Keselowski...

RotoWire NASCAR Barometer Talladega

Sunday's AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway produced a winner that perhaps wasn't the fastest car on the afternoon. Fuel mileage became a factor after the final round of pit stops, and when a late caution never came, it was Brad Keselowski who capitalized on his position to claim the victory. Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson and Denny Hamlin took their turns out front Sunday...

Fantasy NASCAR: Talladega Edition

The two Talladega races are among the most impossible races to predict for fantasy NASCAR. Like Daytona, the best driver or car doesn’t always win. To win or finish up front at restrictor plate tracks is largely a matter of luck and being in the right place at the right time. With the pack racing two-by-two and sometimes three-by-three action, you could be the third or fourth row...

Which Chase drivers are looking forward to Talladega?

Talladega is a big, fast, scary race track. The 2.66-mile high banked oval in the middle of Alabama is one of the most feared tracks the series visits. The restrictor plates make both races very exciting for fans, but sometimes dreaded by drivers. Often, it’s a crap shoot as to who will win as the odds are better to get caught up in the “big one” than to actually win or escape...

MPH or MPG?

You know folks, coming out of Dover this past weekend, the hot topic was once again fuel-mileage races. It's just fascinating to me. Quite honestly, every lap of every race is a fuel-mileage race. The smart guys, the ones that figure it out, they start calculating fuel mileage long before they get to the end of the race - at least they should. If you can stretch your fuel a...
