    Only posted to commend the announcers for actually paying attention to what's going on on the track and being enthusiastic about it. I got so sick of Waltrip and Gordon's endless string of stats and trivia and technical mumbo-jumbo.

    NASCAR will pause the Coca-Cola 600 in the middle of the race on Memorial Day weekend for a moment of remembrance. Charlotte Motor Speedway officials requested that the series make the gesture, which it did in 2009 when the Sunday race was moved to Memorial Day due to rain. “People kept talking about that that was so impactful,” Charlotte Motor Speedway general manager Greg Walter told NBC Sports.“So we asked can we do that again? Our sport is so prone to supporting the military and so prone to understanding what the Memorial Day is all about.” The 30-second break will take...

    Donald Trump Jr. late Thursday laid into House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., after reports appeared to vindicate the younger Trump surrounding Democratic suspicions that he made phone calls to President Trump around the time of the Trump Tower meeting with Russians in June 2016. Senate investigators obtained phone records which appeared to show that Trump Jr. had actually spoken to two longtime Trump family friends – Brian France, the chief executive of Nascar, and the investor Howard Lorber, the New York Times reported, citing two people briefed on the matter. Trump Jr. responded to the reports on...

    I was driving into the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 1983 when Derek Daly was being interviewed by Larry Henry on WIBC and uttered the now-infamous “n….. in a woodpile,” description of himself as he assessed the makeup of his Wysard racing team. Of course it was shocking to hear on the biggest radio station in town, but even though I’d only met Daly a couple weeks earlier, I also knew from his delivery that he had no concept of what he’d just said. I found him in Gasoline Alley and told him he could not use that word in any...

    A sponsor announced on Friday that it has ended its partnership with NASCAR driver Conor Daly after it was reported that his father used racially insensitive language during an interview in the early 1980s. Lilly Diabetes pulled its sponsorship from Conor’s No. 6 car in Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity race, citing his father’s alleged use of the N-word 35 years ago, reported Fox News. Derek Daly, a retired Indy 500 and Formula One driver, was fired days earlier from his role as WISH-TV’s Racing Analyst due to the controversy. In a statement, the elder Daly admitted to using the word, but...

    NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Conor Daly lost his sponsorship deal with Lilly Diabetes for Saturday's Johnsonville 180 race at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, because of a racial slur his father, Derek Daly, used during a radio interview in the 1980s that surfaced this week. According to ESPN, Daly's dad said he accidentally used a slur for African Americans because it had a different meaning in his native Ireland, and he hasn't used it since. "Unfortunately, the comments that surfaced this week by Derek Daly distract from this focus, so we have made the decision that Lilly Diabetes will...

A statement released by the Sag Harbor Village (N.Y.) Police Department said France was also in possession of oxycodone. "Mr. France was observed operating a 2017 Lexus northbound on Main Street failing to stop at a...

    A father who pulled his son from his car following a fiery crash has been placed on probation for the rest of the season by the track where the wreck occurred. Dean Jones jumped into action when his son Mike’s car burst into flames following a crash in a NASCAR-sanctioned late model race on June 16 at South Boston Speedway. While you can’t blame Dean for his fatherly instincts kicking in, those instincts are also a breach of conduct. It’s against the rules for people other than licensed safety personnel to run out on an active track.

    Jayski ^ | 03/14/2018 | Staff Staff CONCORD, N.C. -- The seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champions No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports team with driver Jimmie Johnson will have a new primary sponsor beginning next season.

    Patrick’s final NASCAR race at the Daytona 500 captured her career to perfection. She had photojournalists embedded with her, a hunky celebrity NFL QB boyfriend by her side, social media buzzing — and a crumpled Chevy towed to the garage that put a premature end to her race. Patrick smooched her boyfriend and then kissed her NASCAR career goodbye when she was caught up in a wreck in Sunday’s race. Her final win-loss record was a dud: 0 for 191 in the Cup series.
