Almirola Capitalizes On Second Chance

In the current climate of funded drivers and retreating sponsorship dollars, it’s very uncommon for a young driver without his own money to get a second chance.  What we are seeing with Aric Almirola though, goes against all of that.  JR Motorsports announced on Wednesday that Almirola had signed a multi-year agreement to drive the team’s #88 car […]

Answers to Years of Speculation

It’s official… NASCAR has released the schedules for the 2011 season, and seasons of speculation are finally over – both Kentucky and Kansas got their long-anticipated Cup dates. I’ve never been the biggest advocated for giving Kentucky a Cup date and Kansas a second Cup date. They’re really just more of the same. That said, […]

The Trucks at Pocono? Really?

TC played the ‘NASCAR homer’ in his post yesterday, so I figured I’d balance out the week and criticize NASCAR today. The Truck Series is making their Pocono debut this weekend and you can count me among those not excited. In fact I’m a little irritated the sanctioning body added this event to the schedule […]

New Faces Making Truck Series Interesting

Over the last several seasons, the Camping World Truck Series has been dominated by the old guard.  Names like Ron Hornaday, Johnny Benson, Todd Bodine, Ted Musgrave, and Bobby Hamilton have been inscribed on the championship trophy at years end.  This season however, the landscape of the Truck Series may be changing. I want to […]

A Truck Series Rebound? And Rick Ren Leaving KHI?

This year has been a particularly brutal one for car counts in the Camping World Truck Series. While there usually is a full field, many teams choose to start and park. Looking at 2010 though things are looking up for the truck series. Richard Childress Racing is expected to field at least one team in […]

Updated: Your Favorite Team and a Funded Driver (or John Wes Townley)

I heard a rumor this weekend about a “funded” driver with an opportunity at a large, well respected organization. I would name names, but I don’t know how much credit I give the rumor. That really isn’t the point of my post though. This movement toward the funded driver has become the rule instead of […]

Young Drivers Trying To Weather Economic Storm

Recently here at TNI, you’ve seen us profile a few young drivers and some driver development programs.  It seems that because of some of the topics dominating the current headlines that the young, upstart drivers often have their stories pushed to the back burner.  And it’s these younger guys that need the exposure as they are suffering the most because of the economic downturn.  […]

Possible Truck Series Rule Changes: Your Thoughts?

In case you weren’t aware, NASCAR is currently staring straight in the face of a newly sponsored Truck Series that may only have 15 or 20 full time teams in 2009.  The cost of the series and the difficult economy have forced some teams to quit completely.  In lieu of this, NASCAR has decided just a […]

Iowa on My Mind

Word came down today that Mansfield Motorsports Park was pulling out of its deal to host the NASCAR Craftsman (excuse me, Camping World) Truck Series race over Coca-Cola 600 weekend in 2009. While I think the small town show was a good one for the series, I know a lot of people who are probably doing […]
