Tony Stewart is on the record as defending sprint car racing as relatively safe, but that was before he broke his leg racing in one. Stewart will miss this weekend's race at Watkins Glen as a result of the injury, placing his position in the Chase in jeopardy. He's in 11th place right now, holding on to one of the two wild-card spots with Martin Truex Jr., and a no-show at Watkins Glen could make the last four races of the regular season incredibly important for him.

You know there's going to be significant fallout from a NASCAR race when the winner is barely relevant in the postrace coverage. Kyle Busch celebrated his victory at California, but the real story was Joey Logano wrecking Denny Hamlin and then getting into a postrace shoving match with Tony Stewart. Logano has come under some fire for his actions, although Roger Penske just attributes the final-lap wreck to ""hard driving." We'll be interested to see how other drivers react to Logano in future races.
