NASCAR continues to work on improving its on-track product, an endeavor chairman Brian France takes so seriously he plans to attend today’s test at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The test at Charlotte will be the second as NASCAR continues to seek a rules package that could enhance the competition. “Obviously, we want to get more lead changes, we want to get closer, tighter competition,” France said last week in a briefing
LAS VEGAS — Rick Hendrick remembers the stress-filled days in 2001 when he was trying to launch a new team with an unproven driver. He had an interested sponsor in Lowe’s, but wasn’t sure he could sell the company built around a 25-year-old nobody who had four top-five finishes in an underwhelming Nationwide Series career.

HOMESTEAD, Fla. — The greatest driver to never win a NASCAR championship treated the season finale as if it was the last race of his career. Mark Martin finished 19th Sunday in the Sprint Cup finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

HOMESTEAD, Fla. - Denny Hamlin had given up on extending his streak. After winning at least one race for seven consecutive seasons in NASCAR's top series, Hamlin figured his run would end along with the season at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Think again. Hamlin salvaged something from an otherwise forgettable year Sunday by holding off Matt Kenseth and Dale Earnhardt Jr. and winning the finale. "As bad as the year is, we
