Less than a week after Mark Martin revealed that he would continue his Nextel Cup career with another team, Roush Racing announced the veteran driver's replacement for 2007. David Ragan, born four years after Martin's debut on NASCAR's premier circuit, was introduced yesterday as the heir to the No. 6 Ford. The car has been the flagship for team owner Jack Roush since his program's inception in 1988. Ragan, 20, has competed for the team in the Craftsman Truck Series this season, and made his Nextel Cup debut at Dover International Speedway last month.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - The Daytona 500 was one big could've, would've, should've for David Ragan. With a chance at redemption, the 25-year-old hardly needed a reminder on late-race procedures. In his return to Daytona International Speedway, a little over four months after a late-race gaffe in the Daytona 500 cost him what would have been a life-changing victory, Ragan stayed calm when he found himself out front on the final restart of Saturday night's race. With teammate Matt Kenseth on Ragan's bumper, their spotter tried to warn the young driver to stay in his lane on the restart, the error Ragan made that led to his crushing penalty in February.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - David Ragan earned the first Sprint Cup victory of his career Saturday night with a push from teammate Matt Kenseth that helped Ragan atone for one of the biggest gaffes of his young career. He might have won the season-opening Daytona 500 when he lined up as the leader on a late restart in NASCAR's season-opening event. But he was penalized for passing too early, and the life-changing victory instead went to Trevor Bayne. Now Ragan has his own win at Daytona International Speedway, albeit in the lesser of the races.

TALLADEGA, Ala. - A pair of Davids slayed the Goliaths at Talladega Superspeedway. David Ragan hooked up with teammate David Gilliland in a two-lap overtime sprint, and together they picked off some of the top drivers in NASCAR to drive to the front and push Ragan into Victory Lane. It was the second career victory for Ragan - he also won at Daytona in July 2011 - and Gilliland finished second for a 1-2 finish for Front Row Motorsports. The win came a day after Regan Smith won the Nationwide Series race and Ragan was flooded with misfired congratulatory messages on Twitter.

AVONDALE, Ariz. - Carl Edwards pulled away on a late start to snap a 70-race winless streak Sunday, the second long drought he's ended at Phoenix International Raceway. Edwards broke the longest slump of his career by winning at Phoenix in 2010. He won for the first time since Las Vegas in 2011 by leading the final 78 laps on the 312-mile race around PIR's odd-shaped oval. Coming off a miserable week at Daytona, where he wrecked five cars, Edwards got a push from defending Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski on the restart with two laps left.

AFTER Steve Addington resigned as Kurt Busch's crew chief following the NASCAR Sprint Cup season finale last month, the question was, who would succeed Addington? Now, there's a bigger question: Who will replace Busch in the No. 22 Dodge? Busch and Penske Racing parted ways yesterday in what is described as a "mutual agreement. " Busch was fined $50,000 by NASCAR recently for uttering profanities while waiting to do an interview with an ESPN reporter at the season finale. Previously, Busch had temper outbursts toward his crew during races.

Anxious over a season marked by disappointment, Clint Bowyer used a strong restart with two laps to go, pulling away from fellow Nextel Cup regulars Matt Kenseth and Kevin Harvick to win yesterday's Dover 200. The announced crowd of 40,000 at Dover International Speedway witnessed a crash-filled Busch Series race that set an event record with 13 cautions, slowing the average speed to a pedestrian 96.908 m.p.h. The fans also saw 19 drivers who will compete in today's Dover 400, most notably Chase for the Nextel Cup competitors Harvick, Kenseth, Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin.

Brad Keselowski stayed close to the leaders and then ran strong in the two green-white-checkered laps at the end to win the NASCAR Nationwide Series Kroger 200 on Saturday night in Clermont, Ind. Keselowski had earned the pole in his previous two races but had not won. It was a good overall day for Keselowski, who earlier in the day qualified fifth for Sunday's Brickyard 400. James Buescher finished second. Pole sitter Ricky Stenhouse Jr. led 189 laps before finishing third.

AFTER WATCHING Kurt Busch's race car temporarily "parked" atop Ryan Newman's car late in Sunday's Talladega race, I wondered whether NASCAR officials shudder when they watch major wrecks and think "We are so lucky a driver wasn't killed. " We've had so many major wrecks at the treacherous Alabama superspeedway that people just seem to take them in stride: "Oh, another big one. A mess, but let's move on. " Newman clearly was furious about the wreck that sent Busch's car airborne.

The Atlanta Hawks will not be sold to California developer and pizza chain owner Alex Meruelo . In fact, the team is no longer on the market. The Hawks' ownership group, headed by Bruce Levenson and Michael Gearon Jr. , said Friday that the agreement for Meruelo to buy the team had been mutually terminated by both sides. Meruelo, the son of Cuban immigrants, was poised to become the NBA's first Latino team owner and acquire operating rights to Philips Arena, with Levenson and Gearon remaining in a minority role.
