Through the Gears: Four things we learned in New Hampshire
Post-race reaction after Brad Keselowski won NASCAR's Camping World RV Sales 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

On paper, New Hampshire Motor Speedway should be one of the most exciting racetracks in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Just one mile in length, it’s the shortest oval NASCAR races on between the second week of June and Bristol in late August, part of a summer doldrums stretch that typically produces the lowest ratings of the year. Its second event, held in September, is also in the Chase midway through the first round of eliminations that will cut the field down from 16 drivers to 12 drivers.

For those looking to bury a supposedly slumping Carl Edwards and his No. 99 Roush Fenway Racing team, the message delivered in Sonoma, Calif., was clear: You haven’t kicked enough dirt on the grave yet.

Race reaction from NASCAR's Sprint Cup race in Pocono where Dale Earnhardt Jr. recorded his second win of the 2014 season.

Let’s turn back the clock to 2004. Kyle Larson was adjusting to middle school, simply make it through a daily class routine. People knew Bob Keselowski, Brad’s father, as a former NASCAR driver and Truck Series owner but absolutely nothing about his son. Jimmie Johnson had yet to win a NASCAR Sprint Cup title, while Jeff Gordon was king of the NASCAR hierarchy. Meanwhile, Mark Martin and Viagra remained the most amusing sponsor pairing in sports.
