New Hampshire Race Picks: Uncle Max vs. 13th Place


Hey—you know what’s NOT fun?

No, it’s not getting picks wrong.  It’s not having air conditioning at your place of work during the summer.  The HVAC system went on the fritz on Tuesday, and we’ve barely had it be any cooler than the heat outside since.  According to my boss, the repair guys should be back this afternoon to fix things, and boy do I hope so!

You see, I don’t exactly do well in the heat.  As much as I like spending time at the beach, I also do that in early June, because even going into the ocean when it’s 95+ isn’t enough for me. I always thought I’d do best working in a cold storage warehouse, but I think that ship has sailed.


TRUCK SERIES (2 wins) off


Saturday Afternoon XFINITY SERIES (3 wins) SciAps 200: RILEY HERBST—revenge is a dish best served Terrible.


Sunday CUP SERIES USA Today 301: 13th Place Picks JUSTIN HALEY.  FAVORITE (1 win): RYAN BLANEY—back to back is a possibly for a non-HMS, non-Gibbs car when they’re not at intermediates.  NEXT FAVORITE: KYLE LARSON—best way to avoid crashing?  Winning.  DARK HORSE: KYLE BUSCH—do they serve lobster at Cheddars?

NASCAR ROTY RANKINGS 1995: Ranking the Rookie of the Year Classes Through the Years



Ricky Craven
Join me as we take a look at every NASCAR Cup Rookie of the Year class from 1972 (the start of the modern era) through 2021, going from the worst to the first in terms of overall careers of each year’s rookie class.

1995

Winner: Ricky Craven (Larry Hedrick).  Runners Up: Robert Pressley (Leo Jackson), Randy LaJoie (Bill Davis), Davy Jones (Jasper).  Aborted Attempts: Steve Kinser, Mike Chase, Gary Bradberry, Terry Byers

How their careers turned out: Ricky Craven’s career is a story of “what might have been”, as injuries stymied what appeared to be a great racing talent.  The other three drivers in this class, however, saw far greater success in developmental series like the Busch Series and the IRL.

“Fun” “Fact” about the winner: Ricky’s famous 2003 Darlington win by a nose was the last win for Pontiac, the last win for a Tide-sponsored car, and the last time Kurt Busch appeared likable for a decade.

Ranking: #27 out of 50
