#TBT – NASCAR Victory Lap

Throwback Thursday is the segment that takes you down Memory Lane for the races each week. Viva Las Vegas, everyone, it’s time to party with this year’s playoff drivers! We’ve got a look back at a Victory Lap from a few years ago.

2013

Jimmie Johnson getting lost and lots of rubber sure sounds a lot like Vegas. Plus, there are some retired drivers in there (looking at you, Dale Earnhardt Jr, Greg Biffle, Carl Edwards and Jeff Gordon). I am impressed with Biffle’s burnout – that was exactly what I was hoping someone would do.

For extra fun, here’s the view from Carl Edwards’ car during the event (I would NOT recommend watching this if you get motion sickness and/or car sickness).

#TBT – Homestead Miami Speedway

Throwback Thursday is the segment that takes you down Memory Lane for the races each week. It’s officially championship week – where the literal shit did this season go? – so we’re looking back at a championship or two.

November 2015

Two years ago, Kyle Busch broke both legs in an Xfinity Series crash and missed a solid chunk of the season. He and his wife Samantha also had Brexton Busch. That same season, he came back to win the championship, which is not an easy feat when you’re healthy, let alone after an injury. Here’s his interview with Fox Sports 1 following the championship win.

#TBT – Phoenix International Raceway

Throwback Thursday is the segment that takes you down Memory Lane for the races each week. This week, we’re staying in the Southwest with a look back at PIR.

March 2017

Lots of storylines occurred going into and coming out of this year’s spring race. Kyle Busch and Joey Logano got into a fight the week before, so people were wondering what would happen this week. Plus, Ryan Newman broke his winless streak and made the playoffs. Here’s the Radioactive for the race.

November 2016

As with any elimination race, things got a little crazy last year with the fall race. Add in the fact that the next round is for the championship and the crazy gets stepped up another level. Yet again, here’s the Radioactive for that race.

#TBT – Texas Motor Speedway

Throwback Thursday is the segment that takes you down Memory Lane for the races each week. This week, we’re heading to No Limits, TX before the AAA Texas 500.

November 2014

A few years ago, Brad Keselowski and Jeff Gordon tangled on track during the playoffs and as you can imagine, Gordon & Co weren’t very pleased with Keselowski after the race. Several crew members were eventually suspended as a result of their actions.

April 2017

As usual, tempers got heated during the race and this past April was no different. Unfortunately, a pit crew member did get hit during this race but he ended up being okay, all things considered. Here’s the Radioactive from the most recent trip to Texas.

#TBT – Martinsville Speedway

Throwback Thursday is the segment that takes you down Memory Lane for the races each week. Our grandfather clock is chiming, so time to head to the Paperclip!

March 2015

Tempers usually run hot at Martinsville, so the radio scanners are usually pretty entertaining, to say the least. Here’s the Radioactive from a couple years ago.

November 2015

Tempers flaring sets us up for later that season, when NASCAR returned to Martinsville. There had been an accident between Joey Logano and Matt Kenseth where Kenseth ended up being knocked out of the playoffs while Logano was able to make it through to the next round. Coincidentally, at Martinsville, they had ANOTHER accident that took Logano out of the playoffs.

Hold my beer, guys.
