Hot, hot lug nuts sparked a fire in Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s pit midway through tonight’s race in Fort Worth, leading to a spectacular display of pyrotechnics that took crew members quite a bit of time to put out. The only thing hotter this week? Takes about Dale Jr.’s sandwich shilling.

In a press conference that lasted about…
Tony Stewart won today's DRIVE4COPD 300 at Daytona, but all anyone will remember about the race is how it ended for another driver, Kyle Larson.
