While a major portion of the NASCAR audience are baby-boomers that prefer traditional forms of sports media, there are plenty of NASCAR fans engrained in the internet who seek alternative forms of media consumption. Unfortunately, NASCAR has seemed to fall behind compared to most other major sports in this aspect but that doesn’t mean there aren’t already plenty of great options for these types of NASCAR fans. While Chairgatin’ Racing offers some of the best NASCAR content, here is my list of the top 5 best NASCAR blogs.
Belly Up Sports
A new site on the scene of sports blogging, Belly Up is quickly amassing a dedicated audience. With a combination of satire and strong opinions, Belly Up focuses strictly on sports and constantly publishes new, original blogs daily. Boasting a young and emerging team of contributors, Belly Up Sports offers 7 original podcasts – about all different sports topics – and one specific to NASCAR. Belly Up Racing offers news, opinions and comedy. I highly recommend checking out this site.
Jeff Gluck has been an emerging face of NASCAR media over the past decade. With a constant and engaging social media presence as well as mass following, Gluck is notorious for getting the best audience feedback on races. Although he has worked with plenty of big name media sites, Jeff Gluck’s personal blog is the best way to enjoy his original content.
Beyond the Flag
A topic-specific blog on the popular sports site FanSided, Beyond the Flag focuses specifically on motorsports. If you’re not interested in F1 or Indycar however, Beyond the Flag has a tab to allow you to only read NASCAR related articles. You can even select to focus on Xfinity Series content or Gander Outdoors Truck Series. Whether you’re looking for news or opinions, Beyond the Flag has racing covered.
Unlike some of the other inclusions on this list, Fan4Racing is an independent blog that focuses entirely on NASCAR. Although it doesn’t have quite the aesthetic as some of the other sites, the writers and contributors of Fan4Racing clearly have a passion for the sport. This blog covers NASCAR news, offers personal commentary and greatly encourages reader engagement.
For The Win
As an all-encompassing sports site associated with USA Today, For The Win is clearly a massive sports blog. Along with nearly every sports topic imaginable, FTW publishes NASCAR focused articles almost daily. Rather than the opinions or humor that a few of the other NASCAR blogs include, FTW focuses mainly on racing news and is a reliable source.
