Hi guys. My name's Mitch and these series of blogs that I'll be writing is dedicated to dirt track racing. The main focus is sprintcar racing, both American and abroad, but midgets, late models, street stocks, etc. will all get a run in this blog. I'll be posting previews and reviews (speaking of which, I'll be previewing the World of Outlaws World .... Read the rest of this blog
- "Replacing Addington was a huge mistake" posted by Mike on October 31, 2009 (1 comment)
I'm not sure what Joe and JD Gibbs were thinking when they replaced Steve Addington.
Performance wise the 18 car has been great all season and should have easily made the chase. Kyle's "checkers or wreckers" attitude screwed him and the team out of a shot at the title. The race that comes to my mind specifically is Daytona. If Kyle doesn't .... Read the rest of this blog
- "DGD: Steve Carlson" posted by The NASCAT on October 31, 2009 (2 comments)
Hello everyone. The name is Tim and I have been a huge reader of this site for four years and am the founder and administrator of the local racing hub called The Third Turn (thirdturn.wikia.com).
First, I'd like to thank Alan here at R-R for continuing his valuable work. As someone who has entered thousands of race records myself and sharing .... Read the rest of this blog
- "F1 Needs Kimi" posted by RR on October 30, 2009 (3 comments)
It seems like Kimi Raikkonen has always had a rather enigmatic career. When the young Finn was selected to pair with German Nick Heidfeld at Sauber for the 2001 Formula One season, Raikkonen had only competed in 23 races. So inexperienced was he, in fact, that FIA President Max Mosley refused to grant Raikkonen a full FIA super license (or super licence, .... Read the rest of this blog

Hello, and welcome to my corner of racing-reference.info!
I plan to use this area to let people know about current developments (or what might happen down the road) on racing-reference.info.
First, we unveiled the new blogging section earlier this week and I want to thank everyone who's signed up so far and remind others that there .... Read the rest of this blog
- "F1: What's Left to Fight for, or Watch, in Abu Dhabi?" posted by Talon64 on October 29, 2009 (3 comments)
Although Jenson Button and Brawn GP have already locked up the 2009 driver and constructor?s championships with a race to go, there are still some things left to do for both teams and drivers and for fans to pay attention to.
First, the Mclaren/Ferrari rivalry. Although it isn?t for the championship like most people thought it would be, the .... Read the rest of this blog
- "In The News: Oh No, Not Another One" posted by The Mystery Blogger on October 29, 2009 (5 comments)
NASCAR isn't the NFL yet, and Michael Waltrip isn't Plastico Burruss and A.J. Allmendinger isn't (insert name of random NFL felon here), but for the second time in about a week a Sprint Cup driver has been driving after drinking.
I'm not suggesting a publc flogging for these two drivers, and they have both apologized for their actions, but .... Read the rest of this blog
- "Can Jimmie Johnson Be Caught?" posted by The Mystery Blogger on October 29, 2009 (3 comments)
With 4 races remaining in the 2009 Chase, Jimmie Johnson holds a 118 point lead over his nearest competitor, Mark Martin.
Only 3 other drivers aside from Martin have even a slight chance of dethroning the 3-time champ (Gordon, Montoya, Stewart).
What are the chances that any of Johnson's four closest pursuers can overtake him in the last month .... Read the rest of this blog
