NASCAR Surprises

February 28, 2011 By: Katchop Category: NASCAR

Jeff Gordan won the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series auto race at Phoenix International Raceway.

Everything was going just fine with Kasey Kahne's pit stop, right up until Blake Griffin tried to jump over his car.

Gordon passed Busch with eight laps left Sunday at Phoenix International Raceway and stretched his lead from there, ending his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series winless streak at 66 races.

“It feels so amazing. I can’t tell you how amazing this feels,” said Gordon, a four-time series champion at NASCAR’s highest level. “It’s been a long time, I know, and I’m going to savor this one so much.”

PIR has been the place to end long winless streaks lately. Ryan Newman halted a 77-race checkerless streak at PIR in the spring and Carl Edwards stopped his run at 70 races without a victory in the fall.

NASCAR Gets Sloppy At Pocono

June 08, 2010 By: Katchop Category: NASCAR

NASCAR had fights, crashes, rain delays and probably too much beer on Sunday at the Sprint Cup Series Gillette Fusion ProGlide 500 at Pocono Raceway.

From The LA Times
In a post-race TV interview Sunday, Joey Logano went so far as to take a swipe at Harvick’s wife, DeLana, who typically wears a racing suit similar to the one worn by her husband while she watches him drive the No. 29 Chevrolet from atop Harvick’s pit box.

“I don’t know what [Harvick's] problem is with me but it’s probably not his fault,” Logano said. “His wife wears the fire suit in the family and tells him what to do.”

Harvick later was asked if he would talk to Logano about the incident, and Harvick reportedly dismissed the notion by saying, “You can’t talk to him, he’s 20.” And later Sunday, DeLana Harvick wrote on her Twitter page that “with age comes wisdom and respect. Enough said.”

Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon Make Nice

From ESPN

Gordon didn’t like the way Johnson raced him two weeks ago at Texas and uncharacteristically expressed anger in his teammate following last week’s race at Talladega. Johnson admittedly made a mistake late in the race that contributed to Gordon wrecking.

Team owner Rick Hendrick moderated a conference call this week between the pair of four-time champions, and Gordon said Friday that everything is fine.

“It’s amazing what happens when you get Mr. H involved,” Gordon said before qualifying at Richmond International Raceway. “The three of us had a good conversation. I think we all recognize what contributed to everything that happened at Texas, as well as Talladega. We feel like the most important stuff is all the communication we have in the week and at the race track — what that contributes to our success as a group is too important to let a rivalry escalate out of control.

Man, we have worked so hard for this,” Johnson said in Victory Lane. “I thought we were in trouble there, but those four tires were everything, and I was in the outside lane [for the restart], which was helpful. About time, man. I’m so proud of this team. I am so proud of us setting a mark and going at it and accomplishing what we wanted to.

“We’ve been off here over the years. We focused on what we needed to do and got it done [Sunday].”

Johnson also fired a shot across the bow of fellow competitors who might think the No. 48 Chevrolet team is peaking early.

“Well, we have a lot of racing left — there is no doubt about it,” he said. “But when we’re winning at tracks we aren’t supposed to, the boys better look out — even that No. 2 car [Busch] that doesn’t want the No. 48 to win.”

Bumpy Daytona 500

February 16, 2010 By: Katchop Category: NASCAR

The Daytona 500 was won by Jamie McMurray in a race delayed numerous times by potholes.

There are more people that know the Daytona 500 was delayed due to shockingly poor track conditions on Sunday than there are people who know what driver actually won the race (katchop)

The dismal track conditions at Daytona have been the subject of conversation for years. Three years ago, the topic was hot, and then it cooled down like the slice of asphalt that came loose on Sunday, not once, but twice.

Was it embarrassing? Yes.

Could the fiasco have been avoided? Yes, had the speedway been paved three years ago when everyone was crying for it.

But we’re missing the point on why DIS officials should be embarrassed.

Why? Because they never fixed the pothole the first time on Sunday.
