Events of the Month

Daytona 500 Rarely does the Daytona 500 provide much in the way of predictions about the outcome of NASCAR's 36-round Sprint Cup championship. Run with power-sapping `restrictor plates', which keep the cars jammed together in a giant slipstreaming pack, the 500 is more a lottery than a motor race. Typically, there are more than a few multi-car accidents which inevitably eliminate some of the...

NASCAR in the doldrums

The atmosphere was sombre as Jimmie Johnson wrapped up his third consecutive NASCAR Sprint Cup championship at the Homestead-Miami Speedway in November. There were cheers for a hard-fought title battle between Johnson, 33, and Carl Edwards, 29, that went down to the wire, with Edwards winning three of the last five races and Johnson taking the other two. After the marathon 10-month, 36 race...

Bobby Rahal

Racing lifeThe IRL plays away This month I’d like to look ahead to the new Indycar season which starts in mid-March with a new race in São Paulo, at least that’s the plan – I hear there’s still a lot of work to do. But those races in Brazil are always a little different. We’re coming off the back of a great season in 2009 but I think 2010 will be more difficult, financially anyway. Surprisingly,...

Big shoes to fill

More and more young drivers have been making the grade in NASCAR in recent years. The latest young talent to earn a top ride in the Sprint Cup series is 21-year-old Kyle Larson, who will replace Juan Pablo Montoya next year in Chip Ganassi’s Target Chevrolet. Larson is stepping into big shoes, but few drivers have shown so much raw talent so quickly in NASCAR. Larson’s mother was born in Japan...

Gordon: Busch could be the best

Many NASCAR pundits picked Kyle Busch to win this year’s Sprint Cup title. Busch won eight races in 2008 and has won in all three NASCAR divisions this year, but has yet to show, at the time of writing, the consistency of Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson. Gordon rates Busch highly, but thinks he still has rough edges that need smoothing. “Kyle is one of the most talented, if not the most talented...

Busch plans to chase every cup

This year’s other top NASCAR title contender is Kyle Busch (above left) who won eight races last year, his first with Joe Gibbs’s three-car Toyota team. Fast and confident, Busch seemed at Daytona to have tamed some of the youthful hubris which has got the better of him in recent years. Kyle turns 24 in May, and by then we’ll know how good he’s looking this year. At Daytona he was the man to beat...

Counting down to Daytona

The US Scene The American racing season traditionally kicks off with the NASCAR Daytona 500 in the middle of February. It’s a perfect time for Americans, and Canadians too, to break out of the mid-winter blues for a trip south to Florida. The February date is one of the foundations of the 500’s success and Bill France Sr was quick to realise that he could trade on the snowbirds’ desire to head...
