OPEN WHEEL POWER SHINES AT ATLANTA

 Kurt Busch won the spring Cup race at Atlanta Motor Speedway for the second year in a row. He did it with a new crew chief, but the same car owner. Roger Penske strolled to victory lane on a day when the influence of single-seat and open cockpit racing became evident at the finish.  Penske, or "The Captain" as he is known around racing circuits, is synonymous with motorsports success. He has many owner trophies from NASCAR and even more from various Indycar-style series.& ...

‘HAVE AT IT, BOYS’ PUT TO THE TEST

NASCAR vice president of competition Robin Pemberton may not have coined the saying "have at it, boys," but Sunday he was asked to explain the limitations of those words. Over 150 laps down and upset with Brad Keselowski, Carl Edwards spun the No. 12, who then lifted into the air, hitting the wall with the driver’s side window.

Edwards admitted as much, although he said he did not intend to send Keselowski airborne. In a television interview, Keselowski said that Edwards almost killed him a ...

KURT BUSCH WINS KOBALT TOOLS 500

Kurt Busch snapped Jimmie Johnson's two-race winning streak with a green-white-checkers win at the Kobalt Tools 500. The win was Busch's second straight spring victory at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Matt Kenseth finished second. Juan Pablo Montoya was third. Kasey Kahne was fourth a ...
