Frantic finish at Talladega oddly creates a letdown for fans, drivers

Dale Earnhardt Jr. climbed from his Chevy on the Talladega Superspeedway's pit road, grabbed a towel and wiped his brow. He'd just finished second in a win-or-nothing elimination scenario at his favorite racetrack, where he'd managed to overcome a miscue by his pit crew, a miscue of his getting onto pit road and a late charge through the field reminiscent of his father's legendary Talladega runs.

Despite mediocre season, Jeff Gordon just might be the Chase driver to beat

Let's cut to the Chase: Jeff Gordon has had a mediocre season.

Fortunately for the four-time Sprint Cup champion, he has had the best of mediocre seasons. The Hendrick Motorsports driver remains alive in the Chase for the Sprint Cup; he's tied with seven others atop the standings with just four races remaining.

Jeff Gordon's fairytale season reaches new heights

A grandfather clock is far better than a gold watch.

All in due time.

For now, Jeff Gordon's sublime final season as a full-time Sprint Cup driver continued to defy expectation and common sense on Sunday, as he used his ninth career win at Martinsville Speedway to collect not only the ornamental time piece that serves as its trophy but a chance at one more championship before he retires at the end of the season.

Surefire win slips away from Brad Keselowski at Texas

Brad Keselowski stepped out of his race car, walked down pit road to have a brief conversation with Martin Truex Jr. and trudged on, running his right hand through his hair dejectedly.

Kevin Harvick keeps overcoming obstacles in title defense

Kevin Harvick’s Sprint Cup title defense remained extremely eventful, but very much in progress Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway.

NASCAR's championship four a dream class

One of the strangest seasons in NASCAR history got another bizarre twist in setting the field for its championship race Sunday night at Phoenix International Raceway.

Jeff Gordon goes out with grace in finale

There were smiles and there were tears, but there was no storybook ending for Jeff Gordon.

The 44-year-old will retire after 797 races, 93 wins and four championships. An incredible first-ballot Hall of Fame career. But there will be no fifth championship as a send-off into the next phase of his career as a broadcaster and more frequent attendee of kids’ birthday parties and soccer games.

I'm happy for Joe Gibbs. He really deserves this. He gives so much to the sport and seems like a wonderful man.

Danica Patrick hopes new crew chief can push her to the next level

Much of it seems new for Danica Patrick. New multi-year contract with Stewart-Haas Racing, new sponsor and third crew chief as she enters her fourth full-time Sprint Cup season.
