JGR Rolls With 6 Wins In Last 7 Races

Better late than never; I'm sure Matt Kenseth would concur. All four drivers for JGR have visited victory lane this season with the 2003 champion's win at Dover.

Talladega: Many Suggestions, Few Solutions

Out of all the chaos that was the Geico 500 at Talladega, there's one thing we can all agree on that was good: no one was seriously hurt.
