What's up with NASCAR's declining TV ratings?
  by Dave Grayson
It's not an industry secret that NASCAR's television partners are not exactly thrilled with the television rating numbers generated from this season's broadcasts of the Sprint Cup Series. Despite the added excitement of a revamped Sprint Cup Chase For The Championship, the viewer numbers have repeatedly declined from the same event the year before. One would have thought that Talladega would have been a major exception. After all, it's the Talladega Super Speedway the home of the big one, the speedway where anything can happen on a second's notice and often does.
Timothy Peters returns to victory lane at 'Dega
  by Dave Grayson
For driver Timothy Peters, and his Red Horse Racing team, the 2014 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series' season has been rather frustrating. It was a trend that often saw race weekends filled with a high level of potential turn into race weekends that were consumed by bad luck. That situation took a turn for the better during a weekend in Alabama where Peters finally returned to victory land after winning the Fred's 250, powered by Coca Cola, at the Talladega Super Speedway.
Keselowski and Team Penske Power to win at 'Dega
  by Pete McCole
Brad Keselowski lived to race another day as he took the checkered flag in a thrilling three-lap overtime finish in Sunday's GEICO 500 at Talladega Speedway to advance to the next round of the championship battle in the final event of the three-race Contender Round in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Keselowski held off a furious charge from Ryan Newman and Matt Kenseth.
Vickers roars to pole for Toyota
  NASCAR at Talladega
Brian Vickers roared to the Coors Light Pole Award on Saturday afternoon, working the aerodynamic draft to great effect during a qualifying session full of surprises at Talladega Superspeedway. Vickers, driving the Michael Waltrip Racing No. 55 Toyota to a fast lap of 196.129 mph, will start first in Sunday's GEICO 500 (2 p.m. ET, ESPN), the sixth race of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup playoffs and the finale of the three-race Contender Round. After Sunday's race, four drivers will be eliminated from the field of title-eligible drivers, leaving just eight remaining in the championship hunt.
Sharp Curve Ahead
  by Brian C. Mackey
It's that time of year again.  You know, the changing fall colors, the cooling air, pumpkins and most of all, we're deep in the sponsor hunting season of the fourth quarter.  In reality, the search for sponsors is all year long, but this time of year is reserved for the most concentrated effort.  But just like the seasons seem to be a little out of kilter, in recent years so has the sponsorship story. I used to think motorsports was at a crossroads.  I don't think that way anymore.
Dan Wheldon, three years on
  by Brian Carroccio
As you probably know, today is the three-year anniversary of Dan Wheldon's death.  This, is an updated version of an article written by Brian Carroccio, which appeared on AutoRacing1, a few days after Wheldon's passing. It's been nearly 72 hours since INDYCAR CEO Randy Bernard announced the death of Dan Wheldon. Wheldon's car, of course, became airborne during Sunday's series finale at Las Vegas Motor Speedway during a horrific 15-car pileup. Gruesomely, the 2005 series champion and two time Indianapolis 500 winner hit the catch fence cockpit first, and likely died soon thereafter.
Vettel's move caught Alonso with his pants down
  by Brian Carroccio
If reports are to be believed, Sebastian Vettel was moved to tears during the recent Japanese Grand Prix race weekend. It was in Japan, where the four-time reigning World Champion informed Infiniti Red Bull Racing Team Principal Christian Horner he would be leaving the team he signed with as a development driver in 1998; the team he dominated the sport with from 2010-2013.
Will Stewart's most recent hot-head action haunt him?
  by Dave Grayson
We all saw the post melee at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. Brad Keselowski expressed post race anger, on pit road, towards Denny Hamlin and Matt Kenseth. Hamlin did his best to get his hands on Keselowski while, Kenseth actually managed to find his source of anger in the garage and launched a free for all that required the efforts of a large crowd of officials and crew members to separate the two drivers.
CFH Racing taking shape
  Planning and Construction Underway for Two-Car IndyCar Team
With the 2014 Verizon IndyCar Series completed, the concentration now for the newly-merged CFH Racing operation is the blending of the Ed Carpenter Racing squad with Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing. That process is underway at the state-of-the-art 40,000 square-foot team headquarters (at 1255 Main St. in Speedway). 
Russian GP: Sunday Press Conference

Drivers

3 - Valtteri BOTTAS (Williams)
Hamilton leads Mercedes 1-2-3-4-5 in Russia
  Mercedes power dominates race
As it has been all year, if you didn't have Mercedes power in the Russian GP you were nowhere.  Lewis Hamilton led every lap to win the inaugural Russian GP at Sochi after his teammate Nico Rosberg handed him the race on a silver platter.  Rosberg was 2nd after having to run the entire race on one set of tires after severely flat spotting his first set on lap 1 while passing Hamilton. Valtteri Bottas was third followed by Jenson Button and his McLaren teammate Magnussen - all with Mercedes power.
How Marquez successfully defended the MotoGP title
  Brilliant performace
Repsol Honda's brilliant young MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez retained the premier class title in style this year – and this is the story of how he did so. Last year Marquez became the youngest ever winner of the premier class World Championship, securing the crown by four points and winning it at the last race of the season in Valencia. This year a brilliant start to his title defense saw him notch up ten consecutive race wins in the opening ten races, leaving his rivals chasing his shadows.
