Monster Energy to be on NASCAR windshields

The names of drivers no longer will appear on a Cup car's front windshield, according to an addition to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Rule Book. Instead, Monster Energy will have its logo and name across the top of the front windshield with the car manufacturer's logo.

Both Xfinity and Camping World have their names across the front windshield of the vehicles in their series. The driver's name moves to the rear windshield on Cup cars - matching where a driver's name is located in the Xfinity and Camping World Truck Series.

Gordon willing to sub, but wants Bowman to be first choice
Jeff Gordon
Jeff Gordon

Four-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon said he would be willing to return as a replacement driver for Hendrick Motorsports if needed in an extreme circumstance, but believes 23-year-old Alex Bowman should have the opportunity. Gordon replaced Dale Earnhardt Jr. in eight Cup races last season as Earnhardt experienced a recurrence of concussion. Bowman, who does not have a NASCAR ride this season, replaced Earnhardt 10 times, and scored three top-10 finishes. He won the pole and had a best finish of sixth at Phoenix International Raceway after leading 194 laps. Bowman's lone scheduled Cup start is in the exhibition Clash in the #88 Chevrolet because of the Phoenix pole.

NASCAR's burning questions - is Danica Patrick's career in jeopardy
Danica Patrick is a NASCAR Superstar
Danica Patrick is a NASCAR Superstar
Should Danica Patrick be worried about her career if the Nature's Bakery sponsorship falls through?

Lee Davis, ESPN.com motorsports editor: Absolutely. Patrick isn't a bad racer, she just hasn't shown the kind of improvement she needs to on a power team such as Stewart-Haas Racing. As long as she brings in money -- and she always has -- she has a ride. The day she no longer can, that seat will go to a driver who can bring in money, or one with a bigger upside who could eventually bring in money. That's how racing has always worked.

Ryan McGee, ESPN.com writer: Yes. Her on-track performance probably isn't enough to keep running without backing. And I worry that said lack of performance has eroded the crossover appeal that has made her so attractive to sponsors. It really is an interesting time right now with drivers and sponsors and discussion/negotiation when it comes to expectations within those contracts such as appearances, social-media usage, etc. You add the glut of young talent coming up the ladder and it puts all of the above on a very accelerated pace. I think Danica's case will be interesting to watch because of all of the above.
