Another restrictor-plate race, another controversial finish. And another bizarre Xfinity Series victory for Aric Almirola.
Almirola collected his second-career NASCAR Xfinity Series victory after being declared the winner in Friday night’s Firecracker 250 at Daytona International Speedway after a wild, three-lap overtime finish that ended under caution with Almirola scored just ahead of Justin Allgaier after a video review by NASCAR.

IndyCar Road America Postscript
by Brian Carroccio
I don’t really have a ton to add to what has already been said about this Indy Car racing’s return to Road America this past weekend. I’ll just note that having made my first visit to the racing cathedral in Wisconsin’s Kettle Moraine country, Road America is absolutely everything it is cracked up to be and more. And judging from the reaction of a very happy paddock, the Road America track staff, the thousands of fans that packed the hills and grandstands and the overall atmosphere at North America’s finest road racing circuit, the Verizon IndyCar Series added another much-needed cornerstone event to its schedule this past weekend.

Catching Up With Indy 500 Starter Darren Manning
by Stephen Cox
"When I was doing it, I got paid to drive. You were judged on your merit as a driver... not the check that you brought," Darren Manning said while sipping an after-hours beer and relaxing in the lobby of his company's new facility on the west side of Indianapolis. "I got chosen to drive by Ganassi, Foyt and Walker. It was a very fun time. There was a great camaraderie between all the drivers because the drivers up and down the field were getting paid. The sport has changed a lot."
IndyCar's return to Road America a Smashing Success
by Mark J. Cipolloni
Indy cars had raced annually at Road America from 1982 to 2003 under CART sanction with great success, but struggled under Champ Car off and on through 2007 as Tony George took his hammer to work every day in a campaign to destroy CART. The crowds stayed away and with Champ Car going out of business early in 2008, and IndyCar and Michael Andretti trying to rebuild Milwaukee, Road America was left off the IndyCar schedule for years.
