Simona de Silvestro

So it looks like Simona de Silvestro has left HVM Racing for KV Racing, where she will team up with Tony Kanaan in a Chevy powered car. For the first time in her career, she'll have an experienced teammate to learn from, no cobbled together cars named "porkchop," and no hamster-wheel powered Lotus engines keeping her laps off the pace. It should be interesting to see what she can do.

When you have a newly repaved track, and a relatively hard compound racing tire, but cars keep blowing their right front, no amount of diplomatic language will cover the truth. Some teams just got too aggressive with their setups.

Greg Biffle: Wizard

Greg Biffle pulled off a truly awesome move around the entire field at Talladega, avoiding the 25 car pileup to finish sixth. These screenshots only begin to tell the tale. Keep an eye on the 3M car if you find yourself Youtubing the wreck or catching a replay. It was truly championship caliber driving when he needed it most, after a shaky day that involved a couple close calls and near-disasters.

In his post race comments, Biffle lamented the lack of in-car camera, saying his view would've given ESPN some "million dollar shots." ESPN stayed true to form, promptly ignoring his accomplishment and failing to comment on or shine a spotlight on what he did.

Ladies and gentlemen, after displaying his ability to disappear in a cloud of Smoke when faced with a near-certain catastrophe and reemerge on the other side unscathed, I am forced to conclude that Greg Biffle is a wizard of some sort.

Kurt Busch Peels Out Away From Talladega Safety Workers

Kurt Busch did a very Kurt Busch thing today at Talladega. After running out of gas and damaging his car, safety workers rushed to where he came to a rest and were around his car when he decided to refire it and drive off. Apparently a "Hey guys, I'm going to drive back to pit road now" was beyond him. You know. Because he's a competitor. Or something.

Darian Grubb

The Darian Grub (pictured below) plays a vital role in the NASCAR ecosystem, seeking out decaying Championship dreams and gorging himself on past disappointments. Over a span of 26 races, a miraculous transformation occurs, and the Darian Grub reemerges as a Chase contending crew chief.

After securing the championship, it moves on, and the life cycle of the Darian Grub begins anew.

Clint Bowyer Changes 255 Tires at Indianapolis

I'm going through some of my older screen caps, when I ran across this funny little error from the 2011 running of the Brickyard 400.

The Return of Push to Pass

The "push to pass" button is returning to Indycar sooner than expected, starting at the Grand Prix of Toronto this season. Here is a simple graphic to help you get the implications of what this means.

Bud Shootout Practice Crash

NASCAR continues its relentless futile efforts to kill the two car tandems and bring back pack racing, with predictable results. Tony Stewart tried pushing Kurt Busch in the corners, but it didn't quite work.

Expect to see something similar in tonight's Bud Shootout.

2-Car Tandems Are Here to Stay... For Now

In case you were wondering if the use of 2 car tandems (AKA "love bug racing") was more of a cultural change among drivers, or a purely technological one, the last 3 laps of the Continental Tire Challenge Series ST class at Daytona earlier this month was determined by Kias and Mazdas linking up to draft past each other on the NASCAR portions of the track.

Keep that in mind as NASCAR continues to futilely fiddle with the vehicles leading up to the Daytona 500.

Yeah. I hate to tell you if you aren't a fan of the 2 car bump draft maneuver, but we aren't going back to the way things were. At least we won't until the track really wears in and gets rougher 5-10 years from now.
