No one in NASCAR has more pressure on them than Chase Elliott. He’s just fine with that.

It’s not enough that Chase Elliott comes from racing royalty thanks to having one of the all-time greats Bill Elliott for a father. Add to that Elliott is the only hope traditional racing power Hendrick Motorsports has at winning a title as no other team car survived to the round of eight in the

Confused by the Stars road trip? You aren’t alone. Unpacking two big W’s and one ugly L

The Stars remain a mystery, wrapped in a riddle. Before the team left for a six-game road trip (their longest of the season) they had remedied a three-game losing streak by winning two home games. Then, last Sunday, Jim Montgomery’s squad lost arguably their worst game of the season. The Red Wings

At 42, Kevin Harvick isn’t slowing down. And he’s finally figured out Texas.

Texas Motor Speedway president Eddie Gossage had a go-to joke for years whenever he saw Kevin Harvick.  Gossage would always remind Harvick that, in case he forget, Texas Motor Speedway opened its Victory Lane after NASCAR Cup races too. Harvick had found his way to Texas’ Victory Lane multiple times

Payton, McDaniels more likely to be 2019 Cowboys head coach than Garrett, per oddsmaker

Ohtani backup plan can hit, run and throw. ‘He’s going to be really good’ for Rangers
