LAS VEGAS - Nationwide races at Las Vegas Motor Speedway have been dominated by Sprint Cup drivers, big names like Carl Edwards, Kevin Harvick and Matt Kenseth crossing the checkers first since the inaugural race in 1997.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Darian Grubb sure hasn't missed a beat since he was unceremoniously fired by Tony Stewart.
AVONDALE, Ariz. - Elliott Sadler pulled up to the grandstand, revved his engine and spun his tires until there was hardly any rubber left. A wall of white smoke billowed up the flag stand and drifted over pit road, leaving the rest of the field in a fog.
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Want to capture the nation's attention? Try a giant fireball.
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Tony Stewart has had plenty of chances to win the Daytona 500, and he's had his heart broken every time.
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - If Michael Waltrip were to count up all the concussions he has sustained over a NASCAR career that stretches back nearly 30 years, he'd certainly hit 10 - and probably keep going.
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Kyle Busch twice appeared destined to destroy his race car, and twice used breathtaking saves to keep on running around Daytona International Speedway.
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Over the closing weeks of last season, Steve Addington had been led to believe he would be Tony Stewart's crew chief in 2012.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Since the system isn't broken, NASCAR officials have no plans to change it - at least nothing radical.

MARTINSVILLE, Va. - Roush Fenway Racing teammates Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth couldn't have asked for a better scenario than rain washing out qualifying for Sunday's race at Martinsville Speedway.
TALLADEGA, Ala. - Tony Stewart competes in NASCAR. His heart, though, belongs to open-wheel racing, and he spent the first 25 years of his life trying to get to Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
CONCORD, N.C. - Kurt Busch learned his crew chief was leaving right before NASCAR's title race began two years ago. The impending split never distracted him, and Busch won a race and finished fourth in the final 2009 standings.
KANSAS CITY, Kan.- Carl Edwards doesn't like sneaking up on people. He'd rather have a big lead and let everyone else try to track him down.
JOLIET, Ill. - Tony Stewart ended his season-long funk, winning for the first time this year in the opening race of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.
DOVER, Del. - Kurt Busch looked around and saw NASCAR's biggest stars crowding his car. Dale Earnhardt, Bobby Labonte, Dale Jarrett all zooming past Busch and giving the rookie driver a reality check - his racing heroes from TV were now his toughest competitors on the track.
DOVER, Del. - Tony Stewart's walk back to his motorhome was halted by a pair of old friends. Two longtime NASCAR participants stopped Stewart not far from his car for a lengthy chat in the Dover garage.
CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. - After more than six weeks in limbo, NASCAR star Tony Stewart finally got the news he had been hoping for.
As Brad Keselowski flaunted his fast car by leading session after session at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Joey Logano took a good-natured swipe at his teammate by asking him via Twitter to slow down.
The decision whether to charge three-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart in the August death of a fellow driver at a sprint car race in upstate New York will be up to a grand jury.
AJ Allmendinger and Aric Almirola were the underdogs of the Chase, the two drivers nobody thought could win the Sprint Cup championship.
JOLIET, Ill. - With rain in Friday's forecast at Chicagoland Speedway, the only time on track became a strategy session for the championship contenders.
CHICAGO - It's been 11 weeks since Jimmie Johnson's last victory and he suffered through one of his typical summer swoons.
A win in the season-opening Daytona 500 guaranteed Dale Earnhardt Jr. a spot in NASCAR's title race. It also allowed his Hendrick Motorsports team to live in the moment on the race track and not get hung up on results.
Tony Stewart has one final shot to make the Chase, and it's not a very good one: He must win Saturday night at Richmond, where he last visited Victory Lane in 2002.
