The beloved car ”Amelia” will be back at Talladega Superspeedway after Hendrick Motorsports rebuilt the Chevrolet for Dale Earnhardt Jr. to drive on Sunday. Earnhardt drove the car he named Amelia Earhart to four wins in six starts over a 13-month period.

Tony Stewart kept his thoughts to himself after NASCAR beefed up the penalties for using fewer than five lug nuts on each wheel during a race. Carl Edwards and Chase Elliott both backed the move. ”I listened to Brian France speak about it, and if the intention is to make safer for the drivers and fans, it’s a good thing,” Edwards said Wednesday, two days after series officials announced it would assess tougher penalties on the rule-breakers.

NASCAR has added mandatory fines and other penalties for teams caught without five lug nuts on each wheel. The move announced Monday comes less than a week after three-time series champion Tony Stewart urged NASCAR to take action. NASCAR can only check for every lug nut before and after a race, but may call a car back to pit road during a race.

It’s what Carl Edwards did to teammate Kyle Busch at Richmond International Raceway in what NASCAR says was the first last-lap pass for a win in track history. It was dramatic, controversial and likely set the stage for tense team meetings this week at Joe Gibbs Racing. Was it enough, though, to build any positive goodwill for NASCAR?

NASCAR driver and car owner Tony Stewart says he’s not going to keep quiet when he has safety concerns. The three-time Sprint Cup Series champion was fined $35,000 on Thursday by NASCAR after suggesting that the series needs to do a better job of monitoring whether teams use five lug nuts during tire changes instead of letting teams take short cuts, using three or four, at the risk of safety. ”I understand what NASCAR is trying to do, but I’m always going to speak my mind,” Stewart said.
