Patrick had solid run at Michigan

You hear us say repeatedly that the fastest car doesn't always win in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series. Last Sunday at Michigan proved that statement right once again. The class of the field was the Hendrick Motorsports cars. Combined they led 66 laps, but at the end of the day the highest-finishing car out of the four was Jimmie Johnson in 28th place.

Tough day for Hendrick drivers

Sunday was a rough day for Hendrick Motorsports. Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. had promising rides derailed by car problems, and Hendrick teammate Jeff Gordon's shot at winning at Michigan International Speedway ended less than 10 laps in because of a crash.
