Talladega 'Plate Racing Produces Another Wreck-Fest
  by Pete McCole
When the smoke finally cleared on Sunday’s GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway, Brad Keselowski emerged as the winner, grabbed an American flag from one of his crew, and did a post-celebratory burnout among the scattered debris of what was left of a tangled mess of eight cars that all piled in during the final chaotic run the checkered flag. Keselowski hadn't so much won Talladega as much as he survived it.

Ford GT Makes History, Shank Team Laguna Seca
  by Steven Cole Smith
Ford broke through with a first-time win for the Ford GT at the Continental Monterey Grand Prix at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca Sunday, but Ford wasn’t the car and the manufacturer most were expecting to own the day. Practice and qualifying strongly suggested Mazda would finally break through with its first series win in Prototype, but that didn’t happen – it was a savvy drive by Ozz Negri and gentleman driver John Pew in the No. 60 Michael Shank Racing Honda-powered Ligier JS P2.

  by Steven Cole Smith
