The 20th running of the Brickyard 400 won't go down as a race to remember. Unless your name is Ryan Newman, that is.
Of course the annual Sprint Cup race at the Brickyard is still a big deal, but the race hasn't provided a lot of thrills in recent seasons. That could all change Sunday if the right forces come together.
Matt Kenseth and crew chief Jason Ratcliff made a great gamble late in the race at Kentucky Speedway to earn the win Sunday. Beating Jimmie Johnson and Chad Knaus? Icing on the cake.
Martin Truex Jr. hadn't won a Sprint Cup race in 218 tries. He'd heard the whispers: Did he belong? Truex answered that in a big way Sunday with a runaway victory at Sonoma.
NASCAR drivers and their families love coming to Sonoma, Calif., because it's almost like a mini vacation for many. Then of course, all hell breaks loose on Sunday, Terry Blount writes.
The only person who was going to beat Jimmie Johnson at Pocono Raceway on Sunday was Jimmie Johnson. The five-time Cup champ and the No. 48 crew were that dominant.
Before you think last week's bad finish doomed Denny Hamlin's Chase chances, relax and realize some of his best tracks -- starting with Pocono -- are coming up.
We've had a woman on the Daytona 500 pole, car parts injuring spectators and TV cable lines falling from the sky. Can the season get any more unusual? Oh, you bet it can.
What would you do if you were NASCAR czar for one day? Our guy Terry Blount knows exactly what he'd do. He'd shake up the Cup schedule (Iowa, anyone?) and the Chase.
It's a question that will eventually have an answer, but we have 16 weeks to watch it unfold. Will Tony Stewart, Denny Hamlin or David Ragan charge to the Chase?
This is the low point of Tony Stewart's career. Just consider the numbers. They're downright ugly. Can Smoke finally right the ship at Talladega?
Another week, another trip to the NASCAR woodshed. This time it's Matt Kenseth, the No. 20 Toyota crew and Joe Gibbs Racing feeling the brunt of the league's wrath.
Kyle Busch always has had the talent to win a Sprint Cup championship. Now he has the supporting cast, a phenomenal pit crew that pushed him to a weekend sweep Saturday night at Texas.
Jimmie Johnson is on his way to becoming the greatest NASCAR driver. He's already the most underappreciated. And while haters keep on hating, JJ keeps on winning.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. has the points lead? Tempers are flaring everywhere? We'll see if NASCAR can up the immense momentum built in California at always-anticipated Martinsville.
Matt Kenseth typically is one cool cat when wheeling a race car. But not on Sunday. Emotions ran sky high as the Joe Gibbs Racing newcomer secured his first victory in the No. 20 Toyota.
