Jamie McMurray earned his third victory in his comeback season, beating all of the championship contenders at Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina. McMurray is not eligible for the Sprint Cup championship. But he blew past title contender Kyle Busch on a restart with 21 laps to go in Saturday night's race. Busch had the dominant car but settled for second place after a late caution erased his lead and gave McMurray the opening he needed to take the win. Four-time defending series champion Jimmie Johnson came back from an early spin that dropped him to 37th and was third.

TALLADEGA, Ala. -- The perfect storm was shaping up as the lead pack shuffled into the last lap Sunday at Talladega. Dale Earnhardt Jr. was second, his front bumper on top of leader Jamie McMurray. Earnhardt started to make a move on McMurray, but then looked in his rear-view mirror and saw the pack slowing down. It was only a two-car dustup between Austin Dillon and Casey Mears, but for Earnhardt it was game over. McMurray won under caution on the final lap and the frustration of Earnhardt and his fans will spill over for at least another week.

For some big-name NASCAR drivers, it's time to get moving. Jeff Gordon, Jamie McMurray, Jeff Burton, AJ Allmendinger and Kasey Kahne are among those mired deep in the Sprint Cup Series standings after eight races, and they need to start posting strong finishes if they hope to make NASCAR's title playoff this fall. That Gordon, a four-time Cup champion, and Kahne are struggling is especially notable because they drive for stock car racing powerhouse Hendrick Motorsports, whose other drivers are five-time champion Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. But as the series heads to Richmond (Va.)

As the Brickyard 400 entered its closing stages, Jamie McMurray figured the race was shaping up just as it should. McMurray already had won this year's Daytona 500 for his NASCAR team, which is co-owned by Chip Ganassi, and Dario Franchitti of Ganassi's IndyCar Series team won the Indianapolis 500 in May. Now, McMurray was running second to teammate Juan Pablo Montoya, who clearly had the strongest car Sunday, and McMurray thought it...

Two years ago, questions swirled about the long-term viability of Chip Ganassi's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team. Now, it's gunning to be a title contender. The team's drivers, Jamie McMurray and Juan Pablo Montoya, share the front row in Sunday's Auto Club 500 in Fontana, the second race of the 36-race Cup schedule. McMurray snagged the pole position at Auto Club Speedway five days after winning the season-opening Daytona 500 for Ganassi's team, which is co-owned by Teresa Earnhardt and Felix Sabates.

Jamie McMurray held the bottom line at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway, one eye on the finish line and the other on his rearview mirror. He was certain if he stayed put, Kevin Harvick's lone attempt to pass would be on the outside. He was wrong. Harvick ducked low in the tri-oval at Talladega, then drag-raced McMurray to the finish line Sunday, nipping the Daytona 500 winner for his first victory in more than three years. Harvick had been mired in a 115-race drought dating to the 2007 Daytona 500. The race went 200 laps because of three attempts at NASCAR's version of overtime, and there were a record 88 lead changes among a record 29 drivers.

Those who stayed through more than two hours of red flags and waited as the Daytona 500 paused unpleasantly were treated to another breathtaking finish in the Great American Race. It ended with drama and without a massive wreck. There were blocks, and pushes and the sport's favorite son zooming his way through the field going from 10th place to second on the second green-white-checkered restart. It was everything NASCAR wanted from its new rules package. The race just took a while to get there.

The Du Pont Co. is closing the gap in its name--as in DuPont--as part of an overhaul of its corporate identity. The logo, the company name encircled by an oval, will keep the space, and will stay the same. But business cards, brochures and advertisements will be all be changed to delete the space. The new spelling is already reflected in this year's annual report and proxy statement. Is the change necessary?

Jamie McMurray's great luck continued Saturday with his second consecutive Busch series victory, achieved because leaders Jeff Green and Michael Waltrip wrecked each other with one lap to go in the Sam's Club 200 at Rockingham, N.C. McMurray was running third, watching Green and Waltrip battle for the lead ahead of him with three laps to go, when Waltrip tried to bang Green out of his way. The cars hit and went into a spin, and McMurray coasted to victory.
