When the news was released in late May that East Carolina was going to be partnering with Rick Ware Racing to sponsor a Monster Energy Cup Series entry, the concept seemed simple enough.

RWR put the Pirates’ colors and logos on their No. 51 Chevrolet at no cost to the university, at the same…

East Carolina’s foray into NASCAR sponsorship has hit a wall.

Sunday’s Monster Energy Cup Series race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway was slated to be the second of a three-race deal in which Rick Ware Racing’s No. 51 Chevrolet featured ECU’s colors and logos.

The race team…

I can’t remember the first time I heard of Martin Truex Jr.

The earliest memory I have of him is seeing him in what is now the Xfinity Series, driving a No. 8 car owned by Chance 2 Motorsports, besting team co-owner Dale Earnhardt Jr., in the spring race at Talladega. Being 13 years old and a…

NASCAR Kentucky Auto Racing-2

July 08, 2017

A couple weeks ago, I wrote a column about the NASCAR “silly season.”

All the questions I laid out in that column are still unanswered. Will Ryan Blaney remain with the Wood Brothers? What about Brad Keselowski? And who will take over the No. 88 car for the retiring Dale Earnhardt Jr.?…

NASCAR Daytona Xfinity Auto Racing-3

July 01, 2017

There are few stops on the NASCAR schedule that carry as much meaning as Independence Day Weekend at Daytona.

The tradition has stood the test of time and dodged the relocations that have upended the schedule in the last two decades. Most believed NASCAR would never touch the Labor Day Weekend…

The topic of NASCAR’s discretion when calling debris cautions hasn’t been far from the surface for the last couple of seasons. It seems pretty safe to say after last weekend’s race at Michigan, that’s unlikely to change anytime soon.

Tony Stewart and Dale Earnhardt Jr.…

Let’s face it: Ryan Blaney's win last weekend at Pocono was awesome.

Not only was it impressive that he won without being able to communicate with his team, having to rely on old-school hand signals to give feedback on his car after his radio failed, but it was great because the 23-year-old…

I’m a pretty avid Twitter user.

As a journalism nerd, and a sports nerd, most of my follows are reporters (sports and otherwise) and athletes. Predictably, most of them skew toward NASCAR, with a solid portion consisting of drivers up and down NASCAR’s touring series, as well as crew…

NASCAR Pocono Auto Racing-1

June 04, 2017

I’ll openly admit it, guys — I didn’t see a single second of Friday’s Truck Series race at Dover.

I had to work, spending part of my afternoon out on South Central’s football field throwing passes to wide receiver Emannuel Lewis (check Monday’s Reflector for more…

NASCAR Trucks Auto Racing-7

June 04, 2017

Bryan Clodfelter’s connections to NASCAR and East Carolina go back more than 20 years.

When Clodfelter, the marketing director for Rick Ware Racing, was putting together an idea to have the team field a car in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series sponsored by various universities, it only…
