A restart attempt at today’s NASCAR Brickyard 400 ended up bringing out the red flag because it made such a huge mess, which led to three more restart attempts. The No. 19 of Carl Edwards got loose on the restart, causing a big chain-reaction pile-up that collected a large chunk of the field.
Following a NASCAR pileup that sent driver Austin Dillon scaling the catch fence as his car shred behind him last year, a fan allegedly injured in the incident filed a lawsuit against both the track and NASCAR. The fan alleges that debris hit him in the head and shoulder, and that he has yet to fully recover.
Did you miss Jeff Gordon’s farewell tour last year before he retired from driving in NASCAR? Well Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!!!, July 24, you may get your chance to see Fox Sports’ star commentator back the car.

If NASCAR is racing at Daytona, then one car can ruin a lot of people’s day—as happened on the 90th lap tonight when Jamie McMurray’s #1 got just a bit too much into Jimmie Johnson’s way, leading to The Big One. Kevin Harvick’s car didn’t look so great afterward:
We’ve long broadcast our admiration for Fox Deportes NASCAR announcers Tony Rivera and Luis Rodriguez—the network even blurbed us in a promo—and Rivera once again turned in a terrific performance in calling the bump-and-grind final lap of yesterday’s race at Sonoma.
Tonight’s NASCAR truck race near St. Louis was already running late after a rain delay and several wrecks, but it was one with just seven laps remaining that brought Spencer Gallagher and John Wes Townley to fisticuffs. Rubbin’ (fists) is racin’!
Eli Gold, the legendary stock car racing announcer and Alabama football play-by-play guy, didn’t show up for Tuesday night’s broadcast of NASCAR Live, his weekly syndicated radio show.
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.
Unapologetic bigot Phil Robertson delivered the invocation before tonight’s NASCAR race in Texas, and it didn’t disappoint—if you were looking forward to the duck call industrialist to pray for “A Jesus man” to be elected president in November.
Donald Trump—who is what happens when a fart farts and also quite possibly the GOP nominee for president—got a collection of endorsements today from NASCAR: Chairman and CEO Brian France, Hall of Fame driver Bill Elliott, and current drivers Chase Elliott, Ryan Newman, and David Lee Regan.
Denny Hamlin beat out Martin Truex Jr. by inches in an incredible Daytona 500 finish that proved to be the closest margin in the race’s history.

No, seriously, Jamie Little clearly can’t see John Cena, today’s pace car driver.

The reportedly drunk heckler who drew Tony Stewart’s ire at the Chili Bowl nationals last night, prompting the NASCAR star to angrily confront him in the stands is a Tulsa County sheriff’s deputy according to an update today by the Tulsa World.
Multiple videos have turned up showing a guy arguing with NASCAR star Tony Stewart in the stands at the Chili Bowl. Witnesses on Twitter say the gent flipped Stewart off; we only know it’s smart to avoid confrontation with “Smoke” at a dirt track.
Tonight’s NASCAR truck series race at Las Vegas featured some early, scary fireworks after a head-on crash featuring driver Austin Theriault. The portion of the wall with which Theriault made contact was, according to on-air reports, not protected with a SAFER barrier. Theriault was airlifted to a local hospital by…
