DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - The laps remaining had dwindled to three when car owner Rick Hendrick came on driver Jeff Gordon's radio. "It's time to go," Hendrick said to his driver, whose No. 24 Chevrolet was running second to Dale Earnhardt Jr. and his No. 8 Chevrolet. "Yes, sir, it is," said Gordon, who turned up the jets and won the Daytona 500 yesterday for the third time and for the first time since 1999. The victory, which came in the first overtime race here, enabled Gordon to join Dale Jarrett and Bobby Allison as three-time winners of the event.

Sunday's race in Martinsville, Va., will mark the first Car of Tomorrow race for NASCAR with a spoiler instead of a wing. Stock car purists have to be pleased at the change. The spoiler makes the car look more like a traditional stock car. As for the changes in racing? Even the drivers don't know what to expect. "There's not a lot of characteristic difference from the driver's seat because they did a good job making sure, from an aero standpoint," said Kevin Harvick, who participated in a test at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Tuesday.

The iconic No. 3 may be back in the Sprint Cup starting lineup one day, a possibility that may send some NASCAR fans into an emotional tizzy. That number belonged to Dale Earnhardt , the late, great Intimidator on the NASCAR circuit. Would it be disrespectful for another driver to drive a car with that number? We may find out soon enough. Austin Dillon — the grandson of Richard Childress — already is set to drive a No. 3 Chevy in the Nationwide Series next season.

However rocky the relationship is between Richard Childress Racing and Kevin Harvick, one thing is clear: There aren't lot of better options for Harvick. RCR is now, even if it hasn't been in the past, the perfect fit for Harvick. "We're very excited to have Kevin back," Richard Childress said in announcing a multiyear contract extension. "He has written a lot of history for RCR." Harvick is grateful to Childress, who, after all, started his Cup racing career.

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.

NASCAR drivers are a restless breed. They often complain about the long grind of the season, yet when they have a chance to make it a Blockbuster night and wind down with friends and family, they end up chasing more speed. Isn't that right, Kurt Busch ? Busch competed in the Tire Kingdom NHRA Gatornationals in Gainesville, Fla. over the weekend, and managed to put a scare into the field of veterans who do this kind of thing for a living. Busch, competing as a professional drag racer for the first time, nearly pulled off a huge upset against veteran Erica Ender, who edged Busch by half a car length on the quarter-mile drag strip Sunday.

Ryan Newman capped off a banner weekend for Stewart-Haas Racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway by winning Sunday's Lenox Industrial Tools 301. Newman, the pole sitter, conserved enough fuel and then held off his Stewart- Haas Racing teammate, Tony Stewart, in the closing laps to snap a 47-race winless streak in the Sprint Cup Series. He did not pit during a round of stops under caution with less than 60 laps remaining. Newman finished 0.8 seconds ahead of Stewart, as SHR claimed its first 1-2 finish since the racing organization made its debut in the series at the start of the 2009 season.

RICHMOND, Va. - Jeremy Mayfield had farther to go than most in the Chevy Rock and Roll 400 Nextel Cup race - and he did. Last night was the night for drivers who had a chance to make the field for The Chase to the NASCAR Nextel Cup, the final 10-race dash that will determine this year's champion. And Mayfield, who hadn't won since the Pocono 500 in June 2000 - 143 races ago - was 14th in the standings, 479 points behind the leader and 55 points out of the top 10, the probable final qualifying position for The Chase.

DOVER, DEL. -- Third place in a race isn't usually the happiest finish for a competitive racer. But when veteran Nextel Cup driver Rusty Wallace climbed from his No. 2 Dodge yesterday at the end of the MBNA RacePoints 400, he could have been mistaken for the Cheshire Cat. "Man, for my last race at Dover, that's pretty respectable," Wallace said, the grin spreading. "I want to go out of this sport on top of my game, and to be second in points - just seven points out [of first] - this is pretty strong."
