HAMLIN MATCHING JOHNSON’S MOXIE

Just who does this Denny Hamlin think he is? He ends last season by saying he’s gunning to knock Jimmie Johnson off his perch. Then Hamlin defies logic by tearing up his knee playing hoops. Then he follows that up with surgery, and then goes out and wins a race just following surgery. As if that’s not enough, the outspoken challenger essentially blows off Sonoma because there’s no road course in the Chase. Then the topper: he predicts a victory at Martinsville&he ...

STEWART BACK IN THE CHASE WITH WIN

After three weeks of the Chase for the Sprint Cup, Tony Stewart had dug himself quite the hole in his pursuit of his third NASCAR championship.

A FAVORITE HEADING INTO THE CHASE?

EDWARDS FLIES OFF HANDLE AT TEMPER TALK

Hey racing fans, Carl Edwards here for another addition of Carl's Corner.  This weekend marks the first time back at Atlanta since I flipped Brad Keselowski end over end in the spring race.  Since that altercation, many slanderous things have been written about me and my "rage issues." Kevin Harvick even called me a "fake".  Nothing makes me angrier than hearing lies spread about me, espcially lies that aren't true.  I promise I won't get too upset.  ...
