By Sarah Tonsmeire What a whirlwind of a weekend it was at Dover International Speedway.  For the many times the current rules package led to an uneventful race, Sunday’s race proved to be one of the best under the current package.  Leading into the weekend, all eyes were on Jimmie Johnson as the favorite.  Undeniably, Johnson is the most dominant driver at Dover International Speedway, and certainly the one to beat.  Kevin Harvick went into Sunday having to win in […]

By Sarah Tonsmeire @racing_sarah With only one week of NASCAR under our belts, there is certainly no shortage of items to discuss.  Even with planning and attending his own wedding during the off season, it looks as though Joey Logano has not skipped a beat with producing results.  He proved to be the best when it counted, and won his first ever Daytona 500.  Racing under a green-white-checkered for the finish, NASCAR threw the yellow flag just as Logano entered […]
