DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- A few sights and sounds from the Sprint Cup garage after a crazy night at Daytona International Speedway:
There's Tony Stewart talking to Hendrick Motorsports management about the engines they supply him at Stewart-Haas Racing, the ones that helped the two-time Cup champion to a third-place finish in the Budweiser Shootout.
There's Stewart's teammate, Ryan Newman, walking through the garage after having to spend the night on Stewart's pit box because NASCAR couldn't fix the rules to get the defending Daytona 500 winner into the race.
There's fourth-place finisher Jeff Gordon giving advice to runner-up Jamie McMurray about the final two laps of the green-white-checkered finish, won by Kevin Harvick after a last-lap push from Denny Hamlin.
There's Harvick's crew chief, Todd Berrier, walking toward the inspection area carrying his son, who's donning a yellow Shell cap.
There's team owner Jack Roush walking past the NASCAR hauler, probably wondering whether there's something he could question officials about on the finish that saw McMurray's attempt to block Harvick fail.
There's Chad Knaus, the crew chief for three-time defending Cup champion Jimmie Johnson, surveying damage on the No. 48 Chevrolet, which collided with Hamlin and Casey Mears to end the race just as Harvick passed for the lead.
There's series director John Darby showing a few confiscated parts to a group of people in the back of the NASCAR hauler.
There's country music star Dierks Bentley giving a postrace concert to the thin crowd that, for a cool winter night, forgot the tough economic times to watch the NASCAR season unfold.
