Hello race fans to the 1986 Piston Cup Season and to the 40th anniversary of the Piston Cup! Here, things are going to be just as interesting as the other 1980s seasons.
Race 1. Florida 500: The Florida 500 had a 2 ½ hours delay because Chick Hicks was SOOOO late! So late that he almost missed the Florida 500. But the crews delayed it for 40 MORE MINUTES!? Yep, the Wide Chick Pitty needed to plump a toilet because a special edition die-cast of Chick Hicks as rookie got stuck in the toilet, so the wide Chick Pitty plumbed it with help of the other plumber cars. But since it took so long, it was delayed for 30 more minutes! WHAT!? Kraig Shiftright was in an interview during pre-race ceremonies on RSN. Kraig replied to the crew, “I knew Chick …

Hello, race fans to the 1985 Piston Cup Season! Ya Chun Fei returns after 15 years of not being seen in the public, attending the Florida 500. In the Florida 500, Mike Yankee is on pole position and he trades the lead with Klint Shiftright all race long. But who won? Rookie Kyle Trackson races very aggressively and he wrecks both Mike and Klint, leading into Don Chapcar winning the 1985 Florida 500 (getting revenge on Dale Earnhardt). Larry Smith begins on the pole for race 2 and leads for most of the race. But while leading, he was wrecked by second-place Dale Earnhardt. Larry flipped over and had to miss the next race. So, Larry, you lost the race. Eugene Carbureski wins race 2. On race 3, the Texas 300, Matthew Fillup-Wheel starts at po…Read more >

Heellooooooooo race fans to one of the most interesting seasons, the 1984 Piston Cup Season, aka The Grindlock Season! Larry Smith is on the pole for the Florida 500 and leads the first three laps. Rest of the lead changers (and especially for the Dinoco 400) will not be mentioned in case if it is too long to read. Al Carri was crashed by cocky Dale Earnhardt. Andrew Axler was wrecked by Kraig Shiftright on lap 66. And then comes the deadliest one, Greg Candyman and Charles Johnson crash badly in the race. Dale Earnhardt then caused a multi-car crash involving James Robson, Bill Shields, Ronald Oaks, and Norman Green. Jonathan Melter also crashed and missed 2 races. Andrew Axler came back after he was wrecked by Kraig and he crashed again …Read more >
Hello I am Johnny Blamer of Faux Wheel Drive. Most people nickname me Magnet Face because I DNF on every race except very few, one of those being at Grandol Oil Co. Raceway during the 1999 Grandol Oil Co. 400. From 1995 to 2005, I raced and spun most of the time. I only ever finish 4 times (1998 Gasprin 400 at Pocono, 1999 Grandol Oil Co. 400 at Grandol Oil Co. Speedway, 2003 BnL 350 at BnL Raceway and 2004 Lightyear 400 at Heartland which was my only top 10). I got 0 poles, 0 wins, 0 top 5s and a lot of DNFs. I only placed one top 10 in the 2004 Lightyear 400 at Heartland Motor Speedway in Heartland. In 2006, I got fired for good and got replaced by a pro racer named Tommy Highbanks which would win some races, his first being in the 2009 …Read more >
