SORT BY Relevancy
On this episode of Talking in Circles, we break down the madness from Martinsville and the Matt Kenseth suspension and how we feel about the situation. Did NASCAR get it right? Who is to blame and what does this mean for the future of NASCAR?
We'll also breakdown the Danica Patrick/David Gilliland sitaution and discuss who was wrong and who was right and if NASCAR handled that situation well as well.
Also we talk about Jeff Gordon's 93rd career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory. What does it mean for Gordon's championship hopes and does he have a real shot at winning the championship? Who helped themselves in the Chase and who didn't from the weekend at Martinsvlle, plus we give our weekly attaboys and disappointments.
Also we'll talk about silly season and talk about the new drivers at Brad Keselowski Racing and if we think they will compete for the championship in 2015.
All that plus your phone calls.
On today's episode we talk about a sad anniversary in NASCAR.
After that we'll review the STP 500 @ Martinsville Speedway. Denny Hamlin gives Toyota their first win since Talladega last season. We need more short tracks. What a fun race. We'll give our attaboy/girls and our disappointments.
Also, the big story of the week is the P5 penalty for the #31 team for Richard Childress Racing. Crew chief, Luke Lambert has been suspended for six races, and placed on probation through December 31st. Interesting take that Clayton has on this as to what RCR's next move should be; also, is it time to change the way NASCAR penalizes teams in this sport?
And our team report cards. Usually, every break in the season, we give team report cards, and today we'll give ours after the first six weeks.
Qualifying at Talladega has changed, of course, only the 457th change in qualifying. Is this the best way? Is there a better way?
Also, John Harlow from BeyondtheFlag.com will join the show to discuss multiple topics with us; and that's always a treat.
Reviewing this weekend's events at Martinsville Speedway with a double feature on Sunday with the Camping World Truck Series and the Sprint Cup Series running today. We'll cover both series and give our opinions on each race.
On tonight's episode we talk about today's race at Martinsville Speedway. Dale Earnhardt, Jr wins his fourth race of the season. He beats teammate, Jeff Gordon, and wins the Goody's Headache Shot 500.
Chasers, Jeff Gordon, Ryan Newman, Joey Logano, Matt Kenseth, and Denny Hamlin all had good days. The same didn't bode for Carl Edwards, Brad Keselowski, and Kevin Harvick, who really need to rebound at Texas.
Lot's of attrition, and good runs for drivers today, a lot of wrecks. Kevin Harvick was taken out when Matt Kenseth and Tony Stewart got together with him.
Our opinions on the race, and much more. Listen tonight, on Talking in Circles.
On tonight's episode of Talking in Circles, we discuss the changes taking place in qualifying in the Xfinity/Nationwide Series for 2015 and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series as well. The top-25/30 rule is now gone ,and qualifying will be similar to that of the Sprint Cup Series. We'll talk about whether or not this is a good move for these series, and the other things that will go into these changes as well.
Stewart-Haas Racing will make a crew chief swap between the number 10 and the number 41 teams. Tony Gibson, current crew chief of Danica Patrick will be moving to Kurt Busch following this weekend's race in Martinsville. Daniel Knost, Kurt Busch's current cc will move to the 10 of Danica as well. We'll discuss what this means for both drivers, and Stewart-Haas Racing as a whole.
Penalties we NOT handed down Tuesday as we all originally thought, with the number 31 team at Richard Childress Racing and driver Ryan Newman. It was sort of strange from the beginning as Newman's team didn't really have a reason to cheat, but still got caught with an infraction. We'll talk about why the team wasn't handed a penalty, and how much of a relief this is for RCR.
Cheez-It has resigned with Roush Fenway Racing and will sponsor the number 16 car with Greg Biffle in 2015. Roush has sold a lot of sponsorship so far, and we'll discuss how important that is for their team.
Also, as always on our Wednesday show, we have this week in NASCAR history as we once again go back 25 years, to October 22, 1989 as Mark Martin wins his first career race for Roush Racing, and it was the first win for Roush as a team owner as well. We'll discuss the siginifcane of this win, and how it propelled Roush.
Also, our picks to make it through this round of the chase, and into the Championship race at Homestead.

A lot to talk about today on Talking in Circles, as we once again leave a wild one at Talladega Superspeedway.
Overshadowed is that Joey Logano becomes the first driver ever to sweep one round in the Chase. He wins at Talladega, as the field crashes on what some think was their second attempt at a Green-White-Checkered Finish.
That's where the controversy starts. First off, the Green White Checkered Issue -- Did NASCAR get it rght in saying that the first non-attempt wasn't an attempt? Or should that have been the official attempt?
And on the second attempt, there was an accident that started when Trevor Bayne got turn sideways after contact with Kevin Harvick. Many drivers and fans alike have accused Harvick of intentionally wrecking Bayne to keep his points position locked in in the Chase. NASCAR has stated that they have found no wrong doing with Harvick's actions... We'll talk about whether or not Harvick did it intentionally? Does it matter after France's comments last week? Does NASCAR love this PR, and is this good PR for the sport?
Also we'll talk about the Silly Season heating up for Xfinity for 2015, as one big named driver joins JR Motorsports.
And finally we'll preview the 3rd round of the Chase, and our predictions for Martinsville, and the next round of the Chase...
