#TBT – Martinsville Speedway

Throwback Thursday is the segment that takes you down Memory Lane for the races each week. It’s that time of year where we celebrate hot dogs, so we’re doing throwbacks for Martinsville Speedway.

First-Time Winners

This video looks back at all the drivers who’ve gotten their first win in the national touring series at Martinsville. Much of the video focuses on the Camping World Truck Series and Monster Energy Cup series, but it’s still a cool way to celebrate the first wins.


History of Martinsville Speedway

This video takes a look back at the history of NASCAR at Martinsville Speedway, which notably has been on the schedule every year that NASCAR has been in existence. I found it incredibly interesting myself.

Battle of the Beers

Battle of the Beers – Auto Club 400

The Battle of the Beers is the weekly drinking game focusing on the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. News, discussion topics and other themes of the week are highlighted and in proper Brake and Clutch form, we target them for a drinking game. We’ve got one more race out west, this time in California.

Preferred beer: Corona (most popular beer in California)

Drinking game

-If they mention that it’s the last race of the west coast swing, take a shot (which I guess you can do already with the last sentence of the first paragraph).

-If they discuss the rule changes following a bunch of cars failing and/or not making it through pre-qualifying tech this week, finish your drink.

-If they talk about the Daniel Suarez wall joke from Thursday’s NASCAR Race Rub (here’s some video of it), then finish your drink.

-If Busch Beer becoming the new pole award sponsor is mentioned, finish your drink.

-If Kevin Harvick potentially winning his fourth straight is talked about, finish your drink.

-Kurt Busch has already revealed his Southern 500 paint scheme, so if that gets mentioned, take a drink.

-NASCAR and Twitter made a deal where live in-car helmet cam video will be streamed during races in the second half of the season (including all 10 playoff races). If it gets talked about, take a drink.


#TBT – Auto Club Speedway

Throwback Thursday is the segment that takes you down Memory Lane for the races each week. It’s the end of the west coast swing with NASCAR racing at Auto Club Speedway, so let’s flash back to races there.

March 2015

Tempers certainly did flare, as per usual with a feature such as Radioactive (shown here). Brad Keselowski was the race winner (his only win of the season) and locked himself into the Chase.


March 2017

There’s something about that California heat, because tempers flared yet again one year ago. Kyle Larson took home the win that day – his second career win and first of the season. He went on to win two more races last season and finished 8th in points.

Hold My Beer

Hold My Beer – Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg

Hold My Beer is the segment that features some of the highlights where you can imagine drivers saying, “Hold my beer and watch this!” This week, we’re venturing into the world of IndyCar as their first race of the season was action-filled.

Crash Compilation

There were so many accidents that for the most part, it’s probably easiest to show you all of them in one video for now. However, there’s one accident that we’ll get into a little more detail for in a little bit. Meanwhile, enjoy this video.


Final Lap

This crash was probably the most talked-about incident all race. Rookie Robert Wickens had been running pretty solidly for most of the race. On the final lap, he was in the lead with Alexander Rossi running in second. As the race restarted, Rossi got into Wickens, taking Wickens out of the race and eventually giving Sebastien Bourdais the win. Some say it was just a racing incident while others say Rossi was completely at fault – watch for yourself and let us know your thoughts.
