Jeff Gordon returns to NASCAR Victory Lane in Martinsville

Through the Gears: Four things we learned at Martinsville Speedway
Four things we learned following Jeff Gordon's win in NASCAR's Goody's Headache Relief Shot 500 at Martinsville Speedway.

There was a time when Jeff Gordon couldn’t walk from his car into the local supermarket without getting booed. In fact, I’m surprised there wasn’t a Matt Schaub-like incident, this season’s quarterback scapegoat from the NFL’s Houston Texans who was threatened by hooligans at his home. Such was life for NASCAR’s dominant driver of the 1990s, his metro, New York-style life and team a stark contrast from main rival, good ol’ boy Intimidator Dale Earnhardt.

NASCAR's 13 Greatest Moments of Retaliation

Busch wins in Atlanta; NASCAR Chase race tightens

Through the Gears: Four things we learned in the AdvoCare 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway
Post-race reaction from Kyle Busch's win in the AdvoCare 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

So much happened at Atlanta Motor Speedway this past weekend that the winner was, in some ways, irrelevant. Kyle Busch’s fourth NASCAR Sprint Cup victory clinched his spot in the Chase, but it was one the driver had on lockdown for weeks. The No. 18 Toyota, comfortably within the top 10 in points, has been overshadowed amongst potential title contenders by Jimmie Johnson’s strength-turned-slump and Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Matt Kenseth’s five wins.

Kahne takes a pass; Kenseth wins NASCAR night race at Bristol

Through the Gears: Four things we learned in the Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol.
Post-race reaction from Matt Kenseth's win in the Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Kasey Kahne, by his own admission, is NASCAR’s version of “Mr. Clean.” What else can you say after Bristol’s big fireworks show that never exploded? He had several prized opportunities Saturday to turn Matt Kenseth’s Dollar General Toyota and skate by for the win and a season sweep at the half-mile track. No one would have blamed him, either. All season, the No. 5 car has been swung into SAFER Barriers like clockwork by Kenseth and his teammates; they’ve made the old Allstate cougar accidents seem minor by comparison.

<p> Martin Truex Jr. ends 218-race winless skid, wins the NASCAR Toyota-Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway.</p>

Not long ago, Sonoma Raceway was owned by drivers Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart who, between 1998-2006, won seven of the nine NASCAR Sprint Cup races at the 1.99-mile road course. Road-racing aces like Robby Gordon and Juan Pablo Montoya were the real competition, not the typical oval-centric stock car crowd. And certainly not drivers with a short-track background like Martin Truex Jr., in the midst of a 218-race winless skid.
