Penske teammates "legit championship threats" after big NASCAR weekend in Bristol

Through the Gears: Four things we learned in the Bristol Night Race
Post-race reaction from the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series' race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Penske Racing has been a multi-car team since the beginning of 1998. Despite making over 1,000 starts in the first 15 years in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, it had only a single 1-2 finish — and that in itself was rolling snake eyes on a craps table: mastering plate-racing luck in the 2008 Daytona 500.  Joey Logano

Dale Earnhardt Jr. ran into the media center, jumping up to the podium like a four-year-old kid in a candy store. “I’m not gonna run,” quipped crew chief Steve Letarte, but the driver ignored him, jumping up center stage to sit at the same podium where victory tasted so sweet two months earlier.

Balance of power in Ford's NASCAR camp has shifted to Team Penske

NASCAR Chase deserves better kick-off than stops in Chicago-Loudon-Dover

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.

Kentucky Speedway needs "Fontana Moment" to rebuild NASCAR interest

Through the Gears: Four things we learned in Kentucky
Post-race reaction after Brad Keselowski dominated the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series' Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway.

Kentucky Speedway has now held four NASCAR Sprint Cup races since getting added to the sport’s top-tier schedule in 2011. In theory, the potential is there for incredible racing in the Bluegrass State, a place that begged for a stock car arena to be built inside their borders. Aging pavement, the type that’s resulted in side-by-side endings at Fontana and Atlanta, should give drivers tires that fall off. Multiple grooves and varied setups should be the result, causing better racing all the way around.
