NASCAR star Kyle Larson fired for using racial slur in virtual race
"After much consideration, Chip Ganassi Racing has determined that it will end its relationship with driver Kyle Larson," Ganassi said. "As we said before, the comments that Kyle made were both offensive and unacceptable especially given the values of our organization.

Larson, in his seventh full season racing at NASCAR's top Cup level, was in the final year of his contract with Ganassi Racing. He was at the top of the list of a crowded free-agent field when the circuit was suspended four races into the season because of the coronavirus pandemic.

With new rules and a new normal, NASCAR set to return this weekend
On Sunday at Darlington, NASCAR will return to the racetrack for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic forced it to pack up and abandon Atlanta Motor Speedway on March 13, as teams were preparing their cars for the weekend's first practice session ahead of what was supposed to be the season's fifth race.


Random draw gives Brad Keselowski pole at Darlington
Series officials split the drivers into three groups of 12 based on points, filling spots 1-12, 13-24 and 25-36 with a random draw. Now, without qualifications, practice runs or fans, those cars will line up on one of NASCAR's most prestigious tracks for the first major race since March.

NASCAR returns and Darlington delivers, despite sport's new normal
The hours leading up to Sunday's 400-mile race at Darlington Raceway -- actually, the months leading up to it -- were so strange. The moments immediately following the event, as Kevin Harvick reached a rarely achieved career milestone and did his celebratory donuts in front of an empty grandstand, they too were like nothing NASCAR has ever felt or seen before.

Rain postpones Charlotte's 2nd Cup Series race until Thursday

Rain washed out the Cup Series race Wednesday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway -- a slight break for NASCAR teams taxed by a grueling return to racing. The race was rescheduled for Thursday at 7 p.m. ET, which in turn forced NASCAR to move the Xfinity Series race scheduled for Saturday at Bristol Motor Speedway. The turnaround time is too difficult for broadcast partner Fox Sports to leave North Carolina and quickly rebuild its setup in Tennessee under social distancing guidelines.

Chase Elliott ends Kyle Busch's Truck Series winning streak, earns $100K bounty


Chase Elliott snapped Kyle Busch's seven-race Truck Series winning streak and collected a $100,000 bounty for beating NASCAR's most successful truck driver on Tuesday at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Kevin Harvick announced before the race that he would donate $50,000 to COVID-19 relief for any full-time Cup driver who finished ahead of Busch. Marcus Lemonis, the CEO of Gander RV & Outdoors, which sponsors the Truck Series, agreed to match Harvick's pledge, bringing the total to $100,000 for pandemic relief.

Brad Keselowski wins at Bristol Motor Speedway after late collision
Brad Keselowski has a new crew and is fighting for a new contract at Team Penske. His confidence is still intact and he's convinced he can compete for a championship this year. Being in the right place at the right time is helping.
Keselowski inherited his second win in a week when the leaders crashed in front of him with a lap remaining Sunday at Bristol Motor Speedway. He won the Coca-Cola 600 even nights ago at Charlotte Motor Speedway when a caution with two laps remaining helped him get to victory lane. "I felt like I was in Las Vegas," Keselowski said about the Bristol win. "I went from having a bad hand to a full house real quick." Keselowski held on for that victory at Elliott's expense and now is the first driver to win multiple races in the five Cup events since NASCAR resumed May 17.

Noah Gragson wiggles past Justin Allgaier to win Xfinity race at Bristol
Noah Gragson squeezed past JR Motorsports teammate Justin Allgaier with four laps remaining, a move that caused Allgaier to crash, and Gragson held on at Bristol Motor Speedway for his second Xfinity Series win of the season. Gragson also won the season-opening race at Daytona to begin his second year with Dale Earnhardt Jr'.s race team. Gragson was winless in 2019 in his first full season in NASCAR's second-tier series. His victory Monday night was set up by a caution with 13 laps remaining that wiped away Allgaier's lead. The Chevrolet teammates lined up side by side for the restart with seven laps remaining, but Allgaier cleared him on the restart.

Kevin Harvick dominates in Atlanta for 51st career Cup victory
After another dominant performance at one of his favorite tracks, Kevin Harvick relished the past and looked ahead to the future. He wasn't entirely focused on what he can do behind the wheel. Harvick cruised to victory Sunday over Kyle Busche and Martin truex Jr. in the NASCAR Cup race at Atlanta Motor Speedway, leading the final 55 laps on a day that began with the series acknowledging the social unrest in the country. Before taking the green flag, the 40 cars stopped in front of the towering, empty grandstands on the front stretch to listen to a message from NASCAR president Steve Phelps and observe a 30-second moment of silence in the wake of George Floyd's death while in police custody. Harvick won for the second time since NASCAR returned from the shutdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic, adding to his emotional victory at Darlington in the first race back.
