Not that Newman has anything personal against Logano. It's simply that Newman was loath to see Logano -- or any other previously winless driver in the top 20 in points -- notch a victory.
But there was Logano in Victory Lane, spraying adult beverages on members of his team, celebrating his...
When Tony Stewart made the announcement last month that Ryan Newman would not be returning to Stewart-Haas Racing in 2014, he added, "We are not ready to expand to a fourth team."
Maybe that's about to change. Sources tell FOXSports.com that Kurt Busch has been made a formal offer to join Stewart-Haas Racing next season.
Neither Stewart, who is recovering from a broken...
In a weekend that had neither Tony Stewart or Gene Haas at the Michigan International Speedway, they still were able to take the NASCAR Nation by storm. Late Sunday night the rumors hit the production line and boy is it exciting. But, how true is it? And will it work?

I am sorry, Smoke, but you must sit — for the next three months.
