The Case for Pocono Raceway

Hot takes are quite the thing, aren’t they? When things happen in life, the stress we feel at the moment tends to lead to an emotional response, which usually leads to said hot take. I’m guilty of that just as much as anyone else. Matter of fact, I dropped a pretty big hot take myself…

Three Things: Race Day at Pocono

The rain that hampered things here at Pocono Raceway Saturday has gone, and we look clean and green to get the ABC Supply 500 in today. So what’s going on? * I (heart) IndyCar fans. Not race-related, but this is my 11th race of the season so far, and everywhere we go I’m amazed by the…

Three Things: Two Hours Out at Iowa

We are just over three hours away from the start of the Iowa 300 and here’s what’s going down as the clock ticks towards the 6:15 CDT green flag. *Will the weather hold off? That’s the biggest question mark this afternoon. The temperature has dropped about eight degrees and thunderstorms are forming north of us. If…
