It seems that NASCAR can have an unapologetic feud without the contentious crossfire (see Richard Childress/Kyle Busch ). Tony Stewart and Brian Vickers did a little bumping and grinding at Sonoma last weekend, and while it probably wasn't a very good idea from a practical standpoint — Stewart is precariously on the bubble trying to qualify for the Chase; Vickers needs a ride for next season — you have to admire their unabashed style...

Brian Vickers ignored the first sign something was wrong. He felt chest pains and shortness of breath, but because the pain was at times less intense than at others, Vickers figured it was something that would go away on its own. Or something that wasn't a big deal. "I woke up and being young and 26, I thought I was invincible," the NASCAR driver said. "So I just went back to sleep, brushed it off." Eventually, he had to notice. Vickers suffered from two life-threatening blood clots.

FORT WORTH, Texas — The question people were asking Brian Vickers was, "Will you be able to race again?" The question Vickers was asking himself was, "Do I want to race again?" That might seem like a silly question, Vickers said this week, for a then-26-year-old who began racing karts at age 8 and missed his high school prom to compete at one of NASCAR's most distinctive tracks — Bristol Motor Speedway — in the Busch Grand National Series, and placed 14th. "But when you've gone through all that," Vickers said, "you start looking at your life from a different perspective.

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.

MARTINSVILLE, Va. -- Jimmie Johnson came storming back yesterday from last week's stumble out of the Nextel Cup points lead. And he made it look breezy. Johnson was clocked at 96.736 mph around flat, narrow, half-mile Martinsville Speedway to win the pole for tomorrow's DirecTV 500 in a Chevrolet. But he said his team put no special effort into it, even after they finished 30th, 13 laps down, last week at Bristol, Tenn., in a tough return for crew chief Chad Knaus from a four-race suspension.

After a bit of negotiating, Kasey Kahne will join the Red Bull Racing team in 2011. He will spend one season there before moving to Hendrick Motorsports.

"The opportunity to drive for Red Bull Racing Team in 2011 is a great fit for me, both personally and professionally.

The Major League Soccer season is finished and Santino Quaranta had been doing his training at an old, familiar place in Highlandtown. "I've been doing the run I used to do around Patterson Park when I was just a kid," said the D.C. United forward who still lives in the city and who recently bought a new condo here. "I remember where all the cracks were in the road - and all the cracks are still there." On this day, he was busy packing, preparing to fly to the United Arab Emirates, where he will play for the U.S. under-20 national team at the FIFA world youth championships beginning today.
