After the bite the economy took out of NASCAR’s premier developmental series, the K & N Pro Series (last year known as the Camping World Series), in 2009, 2010 will be a year of great change for both the East and West divisions. The story of this year overall will be the new faces we are going to see in 2010 – some raw young talents you’ve likely never heard of, some descended from racing greatness, and some coming to NASCAR after open-wheel success. These young drivers will be forces to be reckoned with in the Pro Series this year, and look for at least one of the divisions to crown a champion younger than 21. Sadly, the economic turmoil and the resulting sea change in the competition level in the Pro Series will also likely leave several…Read more >
Greetings readership! After a very busy 2009, I am sincerely looking forward to wearing myself out even more to dredge up some rare and exciting stock car racing history. While working with these statistics is honestly very tiring, I feel that I have already been rewarded in a sense both by the ever-growing list of our accomplishments and some kind feedback by a number of fans.
With 2009 behind us, we are pleased to announced what we will be working on in 2010!
- 1 Series We Will Continue To Cover
- 2 Series We Hope to Finish in 2010
- 3 Series We NEED HELP WITH
- 4 Series We Will Start & (Hopefully) Finish in 2010
These series will have results added as soon as possible from the publication of official results:
- Canadian Tire Series
- Corona Mexico Series
- ASA M…

Hello readership! Glad to be home after a very long night Saturday (though my twenty-minute drive home compares little to the Bruncati's eight-hour round trip home to California). I was fortunate enough to be invited this year to both the 2009 Whelen All-American Series Awards Banquet and the 2009 Night of Champions Touring Awards Gala, the two banquets that honored champions from the NASCAR lower ranks this year. I would highly suggest you visit the "blue links" I just passed along to view all the facts, recaps, quotes, and photos from these fine events (though be forewarned it will probably take a few days for those pages to be properly finished and formatted). This blog will cover witty observations and opinions from those two nights; h…Read more >
My blog here, The Spotter's Stand, for the forseeable future will be theme "D@mn Good Drivers", as I try to point out to many new (and even old) NASCAR fans some great drivers who you've probably never heard of but, in my humble opinion, are still among the all-time greats.
I'm kicking it off with one of the all-time legends in the Midwest, a driver by the name of Steve Carlson who has been a short-track terror for just over thirty years. A member of the over-fifty crowd, Carlson continues to add accomplishment after accomplishment onto his resume with every passing year.
This year alone, Carlson captured his first ASA Midwest Tour championship, overcoming sponsorship issues that made him miss a race to record four victories and nine top-ten…Read more >
While competition at the highest levels of NASCAR continue to suffer both from the poor economic climate and the infamous Car of Tomorrow, this year's championship battles down at the NASCAR Touring echelon continue to thrill followers and draw large crowds to local tracks. This high level of competition has kept many of these NASCAR series healthy during a period of time where lower-level sports organizations go on hiatus or close altogether.
Today, I'm going to review these exciting battles and predict a winner for each series title. Since 2003, at least one NASCAR Touring title has been determined by less than ten points. If you're a supporter of local racing, send a message and go to the final few races of these series.
