A side issue coming out of Carl Edwards and Brad Keselowski's interactions in Sunday's race at Atlanta Motor Speedway was that the racing world learned Denny Hamlin isn't the only driver who has issues with Keselowski. I asked Hamlin for his thoughts via Twitter on Tuesday morning when news first surfaced that Edwards was not going to be suspended. "I think everyone needs to take a chill pill," Hamlin replied. "Was it OK for Brad to spin me in front of the field?

NASCAR Taking a late lead in the Pocono 400, Dale Earnhardt Jr. held on to win Sunday at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pa. With five laps remaining, Earnhardt overtook Brad Keselowski , who was attempting to remove debris from the front grille of his car. This was Earnhardt's second win of the season - he also was victorious at the Daytona 500 in February - and his first at Pocono, where his father, Dale Earnhardt Sr. , won twice....

Right call, wrong issue Tania Ganguli Orlando Sentinel I don't think anyone really believed that if someone wrecked someone blatantly and intentionally NASCAR would let them. Sure, NASCAR's executives said many times they were putting things back in the drivers' hands. Drivers would be allowed to police themselves. No more heavy-handed NASCAR. Uh-huh. Sure. Right. Whatever. Turns out that wasn't just talk. Not suspending Carl Edwards after Sunday's race was a correct, if surprising, decision by NASCAR.

It's shaping up to be a wild ride as NASCAR heads into the last two regular-season races (Atlanta, Sunday night) and Richmond (Sept. 10) before the 12-driver field is set for the Chase. Five guys are in: Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth, Carl Edwards and Kevin Harvick, who, along with Jeff Gordon, can clinch a top-10 spot with a finish of at least 40th; or 41st and at least one lap led; or 42nd and the most laps led in Atlanta. Ryan Newman and Kurt Busch look solid too. Then it gets a little dicey for the last four slots.

Count Brad Keselowski as one of the biggest fans of the new wild-card format in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Keselowski stands to benefit because he has won two races, but regardless, NASCAR has found a way to reward winners. "We've seen different variations of the Chase, but this is probably the best one," Keselowski said Tuesday. "It's been a great opportunity for fans, teams, sponsors, everyone because it shows a commitment to making every race important. "We're holding a value to every race that perhaps was lost in the pre-wild-card Chase era. When we came to Pocono in the fall, I didn't want to say meaningless race, but the win I had (this year)

The NASCAR Sprint Cup points standings might lead one to the hasty conclusion something is wrong at Joe Gibbs Racing. It has no drivers in the top 12. Second-year driver Joey Logano leads the team in 14th place, followed by Kyle Busch in 15th. Meanwhile, Denny Hamlin, the preseason favorite to challenge for Jimmie Johnson's crown, is in 22nd place. Take a deep breath and ignore the standings. Four races in - including one at the always unpredictable Daytona International Speedway - JGR has plenty of time to become a 2010 force.

Don't expect a great deal of change when it comes to NASCAR and its start times. Although there has been a push from its TV partners to look at shifting starting times, NASCAR is sticking to its mixed bag for the next season. Regular-season points races in the Eastern and Central regions of the country will start at 1 p.m.; West Coast events will begin at 3 p.m.; and night races will begin at 7:30 p.m. Once the 10-race Chase playoff format kicks in, six of the first seven races will start at 2 p.m. and the last three races, including the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, will begin at 3 p.m. Fox Sports Chairman David Hill recently suggested moving starting times in the fall to avoid conflicts with the NFL. That switch would benefit ESPN much more than Fox because ESPN picks up the broadcasts in the second half of the season.

One driver's gain could be another's loss at Penske Racing. Despite that, last week's biggest winner in the garage was the Penske organization as a whole. It didn't win the Sprint Cup race Sunday at Talladega but showed signs of a solid and bright future. Last week Penske Racing acquired Shell/Pennzoil sponsorship from Richard Childress Racing beginning next season. At the sponsor's request, it will move Kurt Busch to the new car and shift Brad Keselowski to the No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge.

Jeff Gordon's management team and retail giant Walmart are deep into negotiations with Hendrick Motorsports over sponsorship of Gordon's No. 24 Chevy next season. Talks began in the spring and have heated up in the summer. Reports indicate Walmart is looking into sponsorship and licensing opportunities. It would be a big economic boost for NASCAR to attract new sponsorship money during tough economic times. "It's very significant," Mark Dyer , senior vice president at IMG and formerly chief of licensing at NASCAR until 2007, told the Sports Business Journal.

When it comes to polarizing athletes, Danica Patrick is probably ranked with Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow in a category all their own. So it's not surprising that not everyone in NASCAR is smitten by the news Patrick is expected to run a full 2012 NASCAR Nationwide Series and partial Cup Series schedule next season. She would run a full-time Nationwide Series schedule with JR Motorsports and a handful of Sprint Cup races with the team owned by Tony Stewart. "She is not ready for Cup," Speed analyst Kyle Petty said.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — It's quite possible that when NASCAR officials decided to force drivers to make a choice — are you competing for a Sprint Cup or Nationwide Series title in 2011? — they might have invited some unintended consequences. One could be a faster and more furious series on the Nationwide side. With a talented and tumultuous mix of Sprint Cup drivers still expected to be in the fray, the same group not allowed to compete for the Nationwide title, drivers such as Brad Keselowski and Carl Edwards will be left with one obvious option: Chasing victories.

Just for fun, try a Google search using the terms "Talladega" and "Big One. " You get about 195,000 hits. Talladega, site of the next NASCAR pit stop Sunday, is notorious for its parade of bumper cars flying through the air. The unpredictability factor is part of the suspense. A driver could be having a great day, and next thing he knows, he is airborne, with any chance of winning going up in the air as well. With only six points separating Jimmie Johnson and Denny Hamlin in the Chase standings, the possibility of a Big One completely wrecking either guy's shot at a championship looms heavily.

Are we supposed to celebrate Kyle Busch's recent "triple play"? Or bemoan the fact he is cherry-picking easy victories against less-experienced and less-talented drivers? There are lines of demarcation in all sports, which is why you never will see the Florida Tuskers of the UFL taking on the Indianapolis Colts of the NFL. But it's a little different in NASCAR, which allows drivers to mix and match in three different series. It makes for an odd mix like we saw last month, when Busch completed an unprecedented sweep of three national races.

The complaint from Roush Fenway Racing that testing has hurt the team isn't new, but it is confusing. Why does team owner Jack Roush think his team is any more affected by a lack of testing than the others? Roush's team, along with the rest of the Ford cars, has yet to win a race this season. Chevy, Toyota and even the one-team Dodge operation have controlled the season. It's not that the Ford cars have been slow. Kasey Kahne had a chance in New Hampshire but had a mechanical failure.

What exactly does "boys, have at it" mean? As Carl Edwards understands it, apparently, it means when someone angers you on the race track, you wreck him and you wreck him hard, regardless of what other competitors get taken out in the mess. NASCAR will have to determine its answer, and soon. Brad Keselowski is a driver who has annoyed many, but none has wrecked him multiple times so forcefully as Edwards has. Twice Edwards has put Keselowski in a visibly and obviously dangerous position.
