Kevin Harvick leads NASCAR drivers in television mentions

Jul 18 2014 1:37pm CDT | Source: SBNation

Neither Dale Earnhardt Jr. nor Danica Patrick is the most mentioned NASCAR driver on television this season. With a Daytona 500 victory and in the midst of one of the best seasons of his career it would seem that Dale Earnhardt Jr. would be talked about more than any other driver during telecasts of NASCAR Sprint Cup races. Not so, as NASCAR's most popular driver is ranked fifth. Nor is Danica Patrick ranked No. 1 in mentions by NASCA ...

So, the ESPYS took kind of a dark turn tonight. It started off innocently enough with Drake performing a medley interlude, starting with a song about the athletes who have never won anything—taking playful jabs at Dan Marino, Danica Patrick, and others—and then he started singing about Side Pieces. And then Brian McKnight showed up and started singing about Side Pieces with him, whi ...

2014 NASCAR standings: Promising day turns sour for Stewart-Haas Racing

Jun 9 2014 11:56am CDT | Source: SBNation

Symbolic of its year, Stewart-Haas Racing failed to capitalize Sunday at Pocono. At one point the Stewart-Haas Racing cars ran 1-2-3, seemingly poised for a stellar afternoon at Pocono Raceway. Yet much like its year, the results failed to fully materialize Sunday, with Kurt Busch (third-place) the only one of four SHR drivers to finish in the top 10. Teammates Tony Stewart and Kevin Harvick, each of whom was capable of winning the Pocono 400, were u ...
