Larson holds on to win $1M All-Star race

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Kyle Larson was back in the NASCAR All-Star race, and got another $1 million by winning it again.

Larson held off a hard-charging Brad Keselowski during the final 10-lap shootout at Texas on Sunday night, after a slippery three-wide pass for the lead, and pushed Hendrick Motorsports to its second consecutive win, and 10th overall, in the annual non-points race with a seven-figure prize. Read More...

Kyle Busch gets 99th career Xfinity win

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Kyle Busch has often said he would stop racing in the Xfinity Series when he reached 100 wins. With one to go, he is waffling a bit on that.

Nemechek wins 2nd straight truck race

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) John Hunter Nemechek has always had confidence in his ability, and that move he made this year back to NASCAR trucks from the top-level Cup Series was all about having the opportunity to win races with top-tier equipment.

Johnson struggles in IndyCar at Detroit

DETROIT (AP) Jimmie Johnson has struggled to get around the Raceway at Belle Isle Park and at times has been more than 5 seconds off the pace of the leader.

The most challenging track the seven-time NASCAR champion has ever raced was not kind to Johnson in Saturday's first race of a two-day doubleheader: Johnson finished 24th, 14 laps down, because a sensor on his throttle pedal had to be replaced during a lengthy pit stop. Read More...

Allmendinger edges Haley at Mid-Ohio

LEXINGTON, Ohio (AP) A.J. Allmendinger rallied from a penalty, benefitted from a late caution and used a sweeping three-wide pass for the lead to win the Xfinity Series race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

Saturday's victory was Allmendinger's second of the season and came on what Kaulig Racing considers its home track. Team owner Matt Kaulig is from Akron, roughly 90 minutes away, and he jumped off the pit wall to hug Allmendinger after the win. Read More...
