Fantasy NASCAR: Homestead Miami Speedway

Fantasy NASCAR: Homestead Miami Speedway In the Nascar world the Daytona 500 has been viewed as the ‘Super Bowl’ of racing. That is all well and good if you are talking about crowning champions before 2004 but now with the playoff system that is being used this week’s race in Homestead Florida is truly the ‘Super Bowl of Racing’. Where else can you see the fortunes of a competitor or team change so drastically with one small mistake, say a lug nut put on not tight enough or the gas can stuck in the mouth of the tank while...

It’s coming down to the end of the 2016 Nascar season and like the play-offs in any sport, it’s starting to get intense. We already know that Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards are eligible for next week’s championship race but the real question is ‘who will join them?’ Phoenix International Raceway is the site where that question will be answered by late Sunday.

Fantasy NASCAR: Talladega Superspeedway

Fantasy NASCAR: Talladega Superspeedway Once again Kevin Harvick pulls the rabbit out of the hat by winning last week at Kansas Speedway to push himself into the next round of eight drivers who will compete for this year’s championship. If you recall it was Harvick who won the second race of the first round in New Hampshire while finishing 20th in the first race and 37th in the third race. His 38th finish in Charlotte almost put him in the same position again and though I wouldn’t call it luck, Harvick was able to pull off the much needed...
