Kevin Harvick moved into the third round of NASCAR's championship race with a victory Saturday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway, where tempers flared after the race and two drivers had to be restrained from fighting Brad Keselowski.
Kansas Speedway lived up to its reputation for whittling the field of championship contenders Sunday as four Chase drivers finished 22nd or worse in a race that was plagued by tire problems. The victory went to Joey Logano, who earned an automatic berth into the third round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.
Joey Logano helped Team Penske strengthen its grip as the organization to beat for the Sprint Cup Championship, pulling away on an overtime restart to win Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and advance to the second round of the Chase.
Kasey Kahne's "downer" year received an important boost when he overcame his struggles with restarts with a big power move when he needed it the most.
Kahne charged past Matt Kenseth and Denny Hamlin in a two-lap shootout to win the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Sunday night.
