This 2-and-a-half-mile, three-turn course is one of the most unique on the NASCAR schedule, making it a track that some drivers have a knack for — and others not so much.

Eighteen races down, 18 races to go. The 2019 Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway kicks off the second half of NASCAR’s 36-race schedule, one of the longest in sports (February through November). Technically, just eight races remain in the regular season before the 10-race playoff kicks in to crown the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion.

Camping World 400 (Chicagoland) Preview and Fantasy Predictions

The name Chicagoland Speedway has always been a stretch. The much-maligned 1.5-mile oval, the site of Sunday's Camping World 400 is actually an hour's drive and some 45-plus miles from the center of Chicago. That’s like putting a stadium in Stamford, Connecticut, and calling it part of New York City.

FireKeepers Casino 400 (Michigan) Preview and Fantasy Predictions

The biggest news in NASCAR this weekend may not have come from the 2019 FireKeepers Casino 400. Instead, it happened over 1,000 miles away in a Gander Outdoors Truck Series race in Fort Worth, Texas.

 

That’s where 49-year-old Greg Biffle, the former NASCAR star won in his first race back in the sport since Homestead-Miami Speedway in November 2016. Biffle, the 2000 Truck Series champion, earned $50,000 for the Triple Truck Challenge and put himself in position for more opportunities.

NASCAR's 2019 game of strategy under its new handling package hit a whole other level Friday at Auto Club Speedway. The sport’s final round of Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series qualifying ended in embarrassment... and, should we say, a lesson in punctuality. When the clock expired, not one of the 12 drivers eligible for the pole crossed the finish line in time to make a lap.

Paul Menard: 2019 NASCAR Season Preview and Prediction

Driver of the No. 21 Ford for Wood Brothers Racing

There’s a clear theme for Paul Menard’s second season at Wood Brothers Racing: Clean up the mistakes that hurt the No. 21 the most last year to put the team where it believes it should be. It’s a sensible plan of attack considering how a handful of bad moments limited Menard’s potential with a new, stronger team in 2018.


“We’ve had some pretty good flashes at times, but we need to be more consistent,” Menard says. “We definitely have something to build on, and we’re going to work hard on it over the winter.”

Kansas is a state known for its tornadic activity; just look to the Wizard of Oz for proof. But don’t worry about such windy weather affecting NASCAR this weekend. Turns out the tornado already tore through this sport in the form of a four-car Ford freight train at Talladega last Sunday.
