Jimmie Johnson winning the Coca-Cola 600 to end a season-long victory drought was not the most compelling storyline Sunday. But it was the most predictable, writes David Newton.
Kurt Busch could win the Indy 500. Danica Patrick could win the Coca-Cola 600. Which is more likely? It might be a tougher equation than you think, David Newton writes.
Josh Wise more popular than Danica Patrick? Dale Earnhardt Jr. killin' it on Twitter? Jimmie Johnson still winless? My, NASCAR, how you've changed, writes David Newton.
No one would have blamed Kasey Kahne for pushing Matt Kenseth aside -- or even wrecking him -- to win at Bristol, but that's not Kahne's game. Nice in NASCAR? It was a nice win for Kenseth.
Kurt Busch will be sponsored by Haas Automation if he signs with Stewart-Haas Racing for the 2014 season.

Kurt Busch kept his cool after being involved in a wreck with Ryan Newman that ended his chances of winning Sunday's Sprint Cup race at New Hampshire, but his younger brother didn't.
Add "2013 Sprint Cup Series race winner" to Brian Vickers' résumé. That should go a long way toward securing the part-time driver for Michael Waltrip Racing full-time Cup with employment in 2014.
For all those worried Jimmie Johnson is ruining the season with his dominance, don't worry. Kevin Harvick and others at New Hampshire aren't about to back down.
