    Kevin Harvick has thrived as NASCAR's version of a Game 7 master, steeling his nerves and flourishing in those win-or-else races that kept a championship push alive. Harvick won Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway to earn a spot in the second round of the NASCAR Sprint Cup playoffs, pulling away off a restart a year after a late loss at the track. ''It's kind of like an addiction,'' Harvick said.

    Carl Edwards had another hard race to the finish against Matt Kenseth. The Joe Gibbs Racing teammates had skipped the track for the bike path, and what Edwards thought would be a leisurely ride between colleagues turned into a competitive duel on two wheels. ''It was a pretty hard ride,'' said Edwards, laughing.

    It was the year of Roger Penske in IndyCar. No team came close to stopping Team Penske's march to the top of the standings. When the checkered flag fell Sunday on the 2016 season, Penske drivers celebrated with their 10th victory of the year and a 1-2-3 finish in the final IndyCar standings.

    To call the 2015 season a disappointment for Team Penske would be an understatement. The organization had the positioning to win championships in both IndyCar and NASCAR, but came up empty in both series. The IndyCar defeat was a tough one: Juan Pablo Montoya had led the standings wire-to-wire but lost the title on a tiebreaker to Scott Dixon because Dixon won the season finale.

    In a yearlong celebration of Roger Penske's 50th season in racing, Simon Pagenaud brought yet another championship to trophy to one of the most storied organizations in motorsports. The Frenchman won his first career IndyCar title in his sophomore season driving for Penske, and did it in dominating fashion by winning the season finale Sunday at Sonoma Raceway. The Penske team went 1-2-3 in the final series standings, the first team to do so since another Penske trio pulled off the sweep in 1994.

Hunter-Reay had not been stressed about his future - his existing deal ran through 2017 - and he never considered testing the free-agent market.

  • Penske brings John Menard back to IndyCar for 10 races (The Associated Press)
    Sat, 17 Sep 2016 11:57:21 PDT
    The bright yellow paint scheme of Menards will be a familiar fixture in IndyCar next season as the home improvement store returns to the series with 10 races of sponsorship for Simon Pagenaud. The deal with Team Penske announced Saturday gives Roger Penske three sponsored cars for next season, but ended no speculation about his IndyCar lineup. Penske said he has the funding to field cars for Pagenaud, Will Power and Helio Castroneves next season, but the status of Juan Pablo Montoya and a fourth Penske entry is undetermined.
  • No matter what, Team Penske will win an IndyCar title (The Associated Press)
    Fri, 16 Sep 2016 19:24:23 PDT
    Team Penske rolled into the title-deciding IndyCar race last season quite confident about its chances to win a championship. Juan Pablo Montoya had led the standings since the season opening race, but contact Power during the event put Montoya deep in the field and he couldn't recover against Dixon. Dixon won the race, which is worth double points, and tied Montoya in the final standings.
