Jeff Gordon has plenty of motivation for the upcoming NASCAR season. It's the soundtrack rich with voices of children laughing, crying and calling out for daddy dearest. Gordon and his wife Ingrid Vandebosch are parents to two children: Ella Sofia is 31/2. Leo Benjamin was born on Aug. 9. So much for Gordon's plans to retire at 40. "It's making me drive longer, I can tell you that," Gordon, 39, said jokingly during preseason testing at Daytona International Speedway.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Kansas Speedway president Pat Warren was in race control on the roof of the track when lights on the backstretch went dark during the first half of Saturday night's 5-hour Energy 400, the first NASCAR Sprint Cup night race at the 14-year old facility. His staff immediately discovered a fuse had gone out in a control panel. Because the lights on the inside of the backstretch and everywhere else on the 1.5-mile tri-oval remained illuminated, racing continued until full lighting outside the track was restored about 45 minutes later.

AVONDALE, Ariz. - -Mark Martin often says he's "blessed," and for good reason. The driver from Batesville, Ark., has competed in NASCAR's top league for more than 25 years, amassing 40 victories, nearly $73 million in race winnings and a reputation as a fan favorite. But it also appears likely that, once again, Martin will fall short of the one goal that has eluded him: winning a championship. Martin, 50, was in striking distance of catching teammate Jimmie Johnson for the lead in NASCAR's Chase for the Sprint Cup playoff, but Johnson all but clinched the title Sunday with his win at Phoenix International Raceway.

The NBA is on lockdown. Fortunately, all doors are open for business at NASCAR. Let the good times roll, preferably as fast as possible. The sport roars into the final weeks of the season energized by one of the most competitive Chases in Sprint Cup history. The Daytona 500 has been recognized as one of the most valuable sports brands in the world, according to the Forbes Fab 40 published last week. Jimmie Johnson is on the cover of Sports Illustrated. And Dale Earnhardt Jr. — NASCAR's favorite son — is in the competitive scrum to try to win his first Cup title.

Monday was one of the longest days of racing NASCAR has had. Because of rain, the sanctioning body had to stack races and run both the Cup race and the Nationwide race on the same day. The big winner in all of that was Joe Gibbs Racing. Not only did JGR win the Cup race with driver Denny Hamlin just 2 1/2 weeks removed from surgery on his anterior cruciate ligament, the team now has all three cars in the top 12. Considering Joey Logano's growth, that is a significant accomplishment.

NASCAR Sprint Cup champ Jimmie Johnson and crew chief Chad Knaus had a mediocre season, but the pair's usual late-season charge continues to come together. Johnson leads the Chase standings, but just 107 points separate Johnson from fifth-place Tony Stewart, last week's winner. Denny Hamlin remains second. Six races remain, with Saturday's Bank Of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway an undeniably pivotal factor — not just because of the points, but because every team wants to look good in front of their sponsors and the home crowd.
