Stenhouse signs deal with JTG Daugherty

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Ricky Stenhouse Jr. landed the open seat at JTG Daugherty Racing in a multiyear deal announced Wednesday that essentially makes a seat swap with Chris Buescher and the Roush Fenway Racing team.

Buescher had a clause in his contract that gave him a rare opportunity to leave the No. 47 Chevrolet of JTG and return to Roush Fenway Racing. That move happened last month and came as a surprise to Stenhouse, who thought he was signed through 2021 to drive the No. 6 Ford. Read More...

His defensive driving included forcing Riley Herbst below the yellow line right before he crossed the finish line. That put the finish under review; NASCAR had to determine if Sauter's move was illegal. Read More...

Larson pulls out Dover win to advance

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) It is odd to classify a victory on a 1-mile concrete oval in Delaware as the biggest win of Kyle Larson's career. Maybe he is among those who count their greatest triumphs on dirt, in sprint cars, venues far away from NASCAR's glitz and glamour.

But at this time of year, in the middle of a long losing streak and just a year away from free agency, Larson's victory Sunday at Dover International Speedway was enormous for both driver and team. Read More...

DOVER, Del. (AP) Cole Custer raced to his seventh Xfinity Series victory of the season Saturday at Dover International Speedway.
