"I heard that in Australia there will be further restrictions in terms of passes for the paddock and so…I thought we might as well get used to going to the grandstands! I found the people to be very well educated and polite. These restrictions do not seem acceptable: having an "exclusive" atmosphere doesn't mean having an empty paddock. -- Maurizio Arrivabene

Ramblings: NASCAR cheaters, SAFER, Greatest Ever
  by Brian Carroccio
Was it just me, or did anyone else find it ironic that the loudest complaints about the rules came from those unable to follow them? I speak, of course, about the rather bizarre qualifying session this past Friday for the Sunday's Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup race, in which 13 of 47 would-be qualifiers were unable to get through inspection in time to make a first round qualifying attempt. Thus, those 13 drivers were eliminated from qualifying. Amongst those who failed to make it through inspection were star drivers Jeff Gordon, Matt Kenseth, Jimmie Johnson and Tony Stewart. And why were these drivers and others unable to get through inspection?
Johnson drives away to win in Atlanta
  by Pete McCole
Jimmie Johnson picked up his first win of the season and virtually locked himself into the Chase for the Sprint Cup field with a commanding performance in Sunday's Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Johnson held off his Hendrick Motorsports teammate Dale Earnhardt, Jr. on a final restart with 14 laps to go and then bested Kevin Harvick by nearly two seconds to collect his 71st-career NASCAR Sprint Cup victory. Earnhardt, Jr. was third, followed
Matt Crafton Conquers Atlanta Truck Series Race
  by Pete McCole
Matt Crafton proved to be unbeatable in Saturday night's Hyundai 200 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, leading 84 of the final 85 laps to win his sixth NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory. Crafton, the defending two-time series champion, beat out Ty Dillon by over nine seconds, while polesitter Ben Kennedy rallied late to finish third. Rookie Daniel Suarez and Tyler Reddick rounded out the top five.
Kevin Harvick Dominates in Atlanta Xfinity race
  by Pete McCole
Kevin Harvick scored his 45th-career Xfinity Series victory with a dominating performance in Saturday’s Hisense 250 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Harvick led 101 of the 163 laps and won the battle off pit road during the final round of pit stops to take the lead with 25 laps to go. Harvick then held off Joey Logano over the final laps to collect his third straight Atlanta Xfinity Series victory. Ty Dillon finished third, followed by Chris Buescher and Chase Elliott.
A Tribute to Mario Andretti at the ripe age of 75
  by Mark J. Cipolloni
Mario Andretti turns 75 on Saturday - born in Montona, Italy, on February 28, 1940. I can't believe time has gone by so fast. As a young kid he won the first race my late father ever took me to see (Trenton 1966) and he became my childhood hero from that day forward. He went on to take his 2nd consecutive IndyCar title that year and stopped AJ Foyt's IndyCar dominance in its tracks. Then in 1967 he won NASCAR's Daytona 500, a race Foyt had tried to win for years. In those days you were either an AJ Foyt fan or a Mario Andretti fan, and if you weren't you were eventually going to be. It was a magical time.
500 winner Joey Logano wins pole in Atlanta
  by Pete McCole
Joey Logano's week just keeps getting better as the defending Daytona 500 winner took the pole for Sunday’s Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway after topping Friday night's chaotic qualifying session that saw only 34 cars take to the track to post a qualifying time. Logano's lap of 22.447 seconds (194.683 mph) in the no. 22 Ford was enough to knock Kevin Harvick off the top spot for his ninth-career Coors Light Pole Award.
Be Sure to Attend One of These Races in 2015
  by Stephen Cox
A truly great fan experience at an auto race is typified by several things. The cars should lose grip and slide in the corners, and fans should be able to see it. They should be able to see the driver's hands struggle on the steering wheel to maintain control. They should be able to see all, or at least most, of the race track. This combination has drawn crowds to race tracks for over a century.
Logano's Penske Ford wins Daytona 500
  by Pete McCole
Team Penske's Joey Logano captured his first career Daytona 500 victory on Sunday, holding off a surging Kevin Harvick in a final three-lap, green-white-checkered finish to bring home a second Daytona 500 trophy for team owner Roger Penske. Logano was well out in front of the pack when a crash on the backstretch brought out the final yellow flag on the white flag lap, freezing the field to give Logano the victory.

Ryan Reed A First Time Winner at Daytona
  by Pete McCole
Ryan Reed survived a wild, wreck-filled race and topped a final five-lap dash to the finish to win his first career NASCAR victory in Saturday’s season-opening Alert Today Florida 300 NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Daytona International Speedway. Reed passed Brad Keselowski in the final turn of the last lap and held off his teammate Chris Buescher to take the checkered flag, earning Roush Fenway Racing their first ever Daytona victory.
