The NASCAR team of Furniture Row Racing said Monday it signed former champion Kurt Busch to drive its No. 78 Chevrolet in the Sprint Cup Series next year, replacing Regan Smith. Busch this year is driving for another small team, Phoenix Racing, after a series of angry public outbursts by Busch led to his release from Penske Racing at the end of last season. "Kurt's exceptional driving talent has the capacity to take a team to another level," Furniture Row Racing General Manager Joe Garone said in a statement.

AVONDALE, Ariz. -- No sooner had Dale Earnhardt Jr. won the Daytona 500 on Sunday night than the popular NASCAR driver finally joined Twitter. Less than one week later, he has more than 526,000 followers and Earnhardt has been busy tweeting on the social-media site. "I'm still learning," he told reporters Friday at Phoenix International Raceway, site of the next NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race on Sunday. Asked for his general observations about Twitter, Earnhardt said he liked the ability to reach all of his fans but noted that "there's so much coming at you that you miss a lot of stuff . . . and you want to take it all in. " "I don't know what I was thinking, why I didn't get on there earlier because it's a great way to tell people things you appreciate," he said.

TALLADEGA, Ala. -- Tony Stewart was the first driver penalized for dipping below NASCAR's out-of-bounds line, learning a valuable lesson in 2001 at Daytona that he has carried with him the last seven years. So when Regan Smith slid under the line Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway to finish first, Stewart was certain he'd be awarded his first victory of the season. NASCAR agreed with him, and Stewart made his first trip to Talladega's Victory Lane in 20 career starts.

Regan Smith has found his stride in 2011. Now in his fourth full season in NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series, Smith had never finished in the top 10 in a race until this season. But with his third-place finish Sunday in the Brickyard 400, Smith has finished in the top 10 in four of the sport's most prestigious races this year. Smith, 27, who drives for the Denver-based team of Furniture Row Racing, won his first Cup race at the Southern 500 at Darlington, S.C., in early May, was seventh at the season-opening Daytona 500 and was eighth at the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte, N.C., in late May.

Eight years have passed since Bill Russell was asked to prepare for Dodger Manager Tom Lasorda's job.

Mike Scioscia still was sitting behind the plate when he first heard that his future was managing the Dodgers. Reggie Smith had just joined the coaching staff two years ago when whispers began that he would be the next Dodger manager.
