Red-hot Harvick wins $1M All-Star race

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) Nothing can stop Kevin Harvick these days, not an experimental rules package or a field of racers with nothing but pride on the line, and the hottest driver in NASCAR scored a $1 million payday by winning the All-Star race.

Harvick's win Saturday night came exactly 11 years to the day of his only other win in Charlotte Motor Speedway's exhibition event. This time the victory is part of a raging hot streak that brought him into the All-Star race with five points race victories, including the last two. Read More...

Rising Ford aims to end Coke 600 drought

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) It's been 16 years since Mark Martin won the Coca-Cola 600, and a Ford driver has not been to victory lane for the marquee event since. A Ford driver hasn't hoisted a Cup championship trophy since 2004, either.

It was terrible racing and everybody knew it. Read More...

Sauter wins third Truck race of season

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) Johnny Sauter raced to his third NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory of the season Friday night, winning for the first time in his career at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Sauter led a restart with 10 to go, quickly built a large lead and cruised to his 20th career victory. Brett Moffitt and Justin Haley were battling for second, but made contact that nearly sent Haley into the wall. Read More...

Drivers mum on potential sale of NASCAR

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) Kevin Harvick has spent more than two decades racing in NASCAR series, winning a championship at its highest level and spending the better part of a decade owning an Xfinity and Truck Series team.

That makes him uniquely positioned to discuss any potential sale of NASCAR. Read More...
