  • What's next for Kyle Busch, crew chief?

    Georgetown University guard Fred Brown absent-mindedly threw a pass to North Carolina's James Worthy in the NCAA men's basketball championship game 30 years ago and handed the Tar Heels a championship. Hoyas' coach John Thompson never wavered in his faith...

    7-year-old Ellicott City go-kart racer has always felt need for speed
    When Zac Fowler was 3 years old and watched a NASCAR race on TV for the first time, he knew he would get behind the wheel one day. What he didn't know — even after firmly telling his parents, "I wanna do that," over and over again — was...
  • Finally carries the spray

    Welcome back, Denny Hamlin. Where have you been? It seems you disappeared a long time ago. We sent out an APB after Homestead last November, when you let Jimmie Johnson slip by you for the Cup championship on the final race of the season. You really...
  • Busch league maneuver

    Think what you want about the Busch brothers — whether they spice up every race weekend with a feisty edge or are an embarrassment to the brand. This much we know: They sure get everybody's attention. After Kyle Busch gathered much of the...
  • They're all a bit punchy

    Jimmie Johnson and Kurt Busch have just been downgraded to the undercard in NASCAR's contentious Summer Slam Series. Make way for Greg Biffle and Boris Said. Their post-race road rage at Watkins Glen on Monday had all the feisty elements necessary for a...
  • A team in name only

    Once upon a time, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jimmie Johnson were like blood brothers. Linked together, literally, chasing speed and the finish line as one. To the victor went the spoils. In Earnhardt's case, it was a pallet of beer for pushing Hendrick...
  • They'll be playing it safe

    Welcome to NASCAR's wild-card weekend. It's Talladega, baby, where wreckin' and racin' are part of the lore of one of NASCAR's famed superspeedways. For the handful of guys still in the hunt for a Cup title, it means a conservative approach for much...
  • Drive for Diversity is showing results

    NASCAR has been trying for a long time to change the complexion in the garage. For all those efforts, you don't see a lot of black or brown faces in the pits or behind the wheel. But you have to credit the organization for its continued push to change...
  • Biffle's struggles result in shakeup

    Biffle's struggles result in shakeup
    Greg Biffle still has a shot at making the Chase. Jamie McMurray is toast. But they have this much in common: Both shouldn't be struggling and sputtering so much. For Biffle, who ranks 14th and needs a victory to try to secure one of the last slots in...
  • Title chase takes backseat

    As years go, it hasn't been a great one for Jimmie Johnson. He still has a fighting chance to claim his unprecedented sixth consecutive NASCAR Sprint Cup title, but that's strictly an optimistic spin. Johnson's shot at winning the title would rely on...
  • Call it the chase before the Chase

    It's shaping up to be a wild ride as NASCAR heads into the last two regular-season races (Atlanta, Sunday night) and Richmond (Sept. 10) before the 12-driver field is set for the Chase. Five guys are in: Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth, Carl...
  • Dale pales in comparison

    Certainly there have been worse transactions in the history of sports. Take your pick: The Red Sox selling Babe Ruth so they could finance a Broadway musical. The Baltimore Colts forcibly dumping pouty Sanford rookie QB John Elway for Mark Hermann and...
