Ford 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway...the Just Us Cupdate

Chase Race #10: The Ford 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway


The Race Report...All the NASCAR News That's Unfit to Print



Jimmie Johnson Wins the NEXTEL Cup



Greg Biffle Wins at Homestead...A Season in Disarray Ends on a High Note


Coming to Through the Cigar Smoke...

January 6, 2007 look for the 43 Days of Daytona to begin with a look ahead at next season.

And JUC Updates, News, and Reviews occasionally through the offseason.


Spectacular Juan Pablo Montoya Fiery Crash at Homestead...In the Words of the Pointer Sisters, "Fire!"

Ryan Newman Might Have Had a Hand in Helping Montoya's Night go up in Flames

I know, I know...NASCAR is about paybacks and such. But I don't see the value in wrecking a rookie on the circuit in his first start...(his second start?)...because he made a mistake...Newman was an idiot on this one. And he was just lucky that JPM was able to get out of the car...that was a whole lot of fire.


Owner's Putting Together the Formula for Championships


Bob Margolis's commentary on NBC's last NASCAR coverage and the end of their contract...

Sunday's race marked the end of the NBC broadcast contract with NASCAR. Good riddance! The peacock network single-handedly did more harm to NASCAR than any other broadcast partner in the sport's history by permanently alienating a good deal of the casual race-viewing audience with its incessant commercial breaks.
It took a dedicated race fan to be able to stick with, much less follow, the race through NBC's steady pattern of running five minutes of commercials between every five minutes of racing action.

Cadi and I couldn't agree more!!! NBC's NASCAR coverage sucks!!!


Okay, show of hands...how many of you remember Johnson's team getting caught CHEATING at Daytona and having Chad Knaus be sent to the sidelines for four races. Darian Grubb should get a lot, A LOT, of credit. He was the guy who took over as interim crew chief for those races and did the job while Knaus was gone.

And at the time, they weren't fined any points, though there was a monetary fine to go along with Knaus's suspension.

Thankfully, Johnson won by a wider points margin than would have usually been accessed had NASCAR fined him points. He won by 56 points over second place. The usual point penalty amount is 25 points.

With the way that Johnson ran the last month or two, I hope that NASCAR's inspectors were looking closely rather than looking the other way.

But thanks to that crap in the early season, I'm always going to wonder. And everytime Johnson goes to victory lane from now on, I'm going to wonder.
