    (I'm just going to put this out there for NRF, since it hasn't been posted already. I'm not going to compile the IndyCar standings, as last week's race was a double-header and I'd rather not screw anything up by miscounting something.)

  8. "Observations from Chicagoland Speedway" posted by NASCARgirl01 on July 21, 2014   (3 comments)

    During the second half of last week, all I seemed to be hearing everywhere was 'what are we going to do this weekend without a NASCAR race??' The clear answer to that was to watch the Nationwide series race (and ARCA/IndyCar)! So I packed up and headed to Chicagoland Speedway for a fun, action-packed weekend. While I was there, as usual, different .... Read the rest of this blog


  9. "My Ideas for 2015 Schedules: Part 3" posted by SpeedWorld97 on July 20, 2014   (0 comments)

    After presenting my schedules for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and Verizon IndyCar Series, I now move on to the last part of this three part blog post: the proposed 2015 TUDOR United Sports Car Championship. As you will notice, I will continue the trend from this inaugural season of excluding certain classes from competing at certain locations, although .... Read the rest of this blog


  10. "A More Radical Proposal" posted by Uptight Motorsports Nerd on July 19, 2014   (2 comments)

    One year ago, I suggested converting Loudon to a dirt track. It seemed like a popular suggestion that would probably never happen in the real world. Now I have an idea that is more radical and probably less likely to actually happen. Let's convert Atlanta Motor Speedway to a dirt track.

    Atlanta was last resurfaced during its 1997 reconfiguration. .... Read the rest of this blog


  11. "No #Take5 This Week" posted by numbah10hatah on July 18, 2014   (0 comments)

    I have found out that I am going to be busy all weekend, so there will be no predictions for the Nationwide Series at Chicagoland. However, I will try to find time this weekend to add up the points from last week. .... Read the rest of this blog


  12. "My Ideas for 2015 Schedules: Part 2" posted by SpeedWorld97 on July 18, 2014   (0 comments)

    In part 2, I will provide my ideal schedule for the 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series. Unlike the Cup Series schedule I proposed in part 1, I will try to be as realistic as possible with composing this schedule. Before I type the schedule I should mention that the schedule would run from early March to early October (7 months), which is longer than what the .... Read the rest of this blog


  13. "My Ideas for 2015 Schedules: Part 1" posted by SpeedWorld97 on July 17, 2014   (7 comments)

    As I can now safely say that the 2014 professional racing season is about halfway over, many teams, race promoters, and series personnel are already shifting their focus towards 2015. Silly Season is coming very soon, and within the next few months the schedules for just about every professional racing series will soon be released to the public. Something ....

  16. "RRFRDL Standings After New Hampshire/Iowa" posted by The Long Shot on July 16, 2014   (0 comments)

    R3 Motorsports owned the week's winner in Brad Keselowski, allowing them to pull away from the rest of the pack in an attempt to catch Rainbow Legend Enterprises. A pretty tight battle is forming deeper in the pack as well, as 3rd-8th in points are separated by just 70 points.

    A big congratulations is in order for Harrea Motorsports, who owned this week's Cup winner in Aric Almirola after being last in points for virtually the entire season.

    Coming off his recent top ten finishes in Road America and Daytona last weekend (as long with being one of the four in the Dash for Cash in New Hampshire), Jeremy Clements has been getting a lot of attention. Every single bit of that attention is well deserved. He and his family have taken their own team from ARCA into a part time Nationwide series .... Read the rest of this blog


  24. "RR Fantasy - Home Tracks Shutting Down" posted by The Long Shot on July 8, 2014   (3 comments)

    I'm shuttering the Home Track Predictions. I see no reason to keep a league alive that gets 2-3 participants a week on its best days, and absolutely no participants on its worst. Sorry to those of you who were hoping to win a championship this year, but if you wanted the championship that badly, you should have played more. I appreciate that you were ....

    As we know, with the NHL division/conference realignment, much criticism came toward the "Metrosexual" division, due to Gary Bettman's insane obsession with having the Pittsburgh Penguins, New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers, Washington Capitals, and Carolina Hurricanes all in the same division, even at the risk of collapsing the geographic structure ....

    Hello everyone! It has been a long time since I posted something here. I don't keep up with NASCAR like I once did, although I usually read an article about each race the following day and check out the final results.

    Congratulations to Aric Almirola and the #43 team today! That team has gone a long time (15 years) without a win, so I am happy .... Read the rest of this blog

    After the first volume of the "Long Shot Quiz" fizzed out pretty quickly, it took me a while to motivate myself to create another one. And now, here we are.

    The format is, like the last one, ridiculously easy. The object is this: correctly name the top points finishers for a certain series in a certain year. You will predict the top 10 in points .... Read the rest of this blog


  28. "My Borg-Warner Runneth Over" posted by Uptight Motorsports Nerd on July 4, 2014   (2 comments)

    I've noticed there are two schools of thought as to how the IndyCar Series schedule should be arranged: equal parts ovals, road, and street courses; and equal parts ovals, road and street courses (note the position of commas). Submitted for your approval is a possible 2015 schedule that visits a wide variety of tracks, starts before the 24 Hours of .... Read the rest of this blog

    For what I believe is the first time in the history of this league, R3 Motorsports had the dubious honor of owning the week's winner in Brad Keselowski and the week's last-place finisher in Denny Hamlin.

  33. "What You Might Have Missed: Kentucky Edition" posted by NASCARgirl01 on July 1, 2014   (2 comments)

    Kentucky Speedway has rapidly been moving up my list of favorite tracks. The setup of the infield, ease of traffic moving in and out of the track and in general being very fan friendly - it's no real wonder why that's the case. I was privileged to be one of the people at the races this weekend, even seeing it from a different perspective than I had .... Read the rest of this blog
