WIN PUSHES MARTIN INTO CHASE FIELD

It was one hell of a week for Mark Martin. Hendrick Motorsports signed him to drive full-time in 2010. He won his second race of the season - the Southern 500 - on Saturday.

It wasn't a bad week for Jimmie Johnson, Tony Stewart, Ryan Newman and Jeff Gordon, either, who finished behind Martin in that order. Gordon held onto first place in the Cup standings while Stewart jumped Kurt Busch. The big loser? Clint Bow ...

Drivers say it is still fun to drive, but not as fun as it used to be.Kyle Busch won this race last year. And he’s feeling all kinds of confident right now.To win, Busch and ...

NASCAR WAG VIDEO

You know what would be great? What if someone created a video featuring Sprint Cup drivers' wives and girlfriends? And what if that video was set to a Barry White song?
