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.

THE "DOVER Dominator" is back. Jimmie Johnson, winner of a record 10 Dover Cup races, will attempt to add to his collection Sunday at Dover International Speedway. Johnson has won three of the last five Dover races. In his spring 2015 win at the Delaware 1-mile oval, Johnson led only the last 23 laps. "There is just something about Dover that fits my driving style," the six-time Cup champion said. "There is some weird pressure that comes with that - we aren't too happy when we aren't running up to our expectations.

SPRINT CUP SERIES rookies aren't supposed to be racing as Chase Elliott is, unless they are very talented. In Elliott's first 11 races, he has three top-five finishes, four more top 10s and was the fastest qualifier for the season-opening Daytona 500. At age 20, he also is the youngest polesitter for a Daytona 500. Sitting 11th in points, Elliott has done a superb job replacing the retired Jeff Gordon in the No. 24 Chevrolet. "If I told you I wasn't nervous at the beginning of the year I'd be lying," Elliott said Wednesday in a telephone interview.

NO ONE HAS to remind Kasey Kahne that for the benefit of his racing career, he needs to qualify for this year's Chase. Kahne's last Sprint Cup series win was at Atlanta in 2014 when he made the Chase (he finished 11th). Kahne's stablemates at Hendrick Motorsports are formidable: Jimmie Johnson, a six-time Cup champion; Dale Earnhardt Jr., the series' most popular driver with 26 career wins, and impressive rookie Chase Elliott. It's time for Kahne (17 career Cup wins) to git 'er going.

ONE WEEK, it's restarts. Another week, it's an angry driver shoving a racing rival. This week, it's burnouts. There's always some drama in NASCAR, particularly at Chase time. Kevin Harvick's celebratory smokescreen burnout after he dominated at Dover International Speedway last Sunday has aroused suspicions that he purposely made contact with the interior wall and blew out his tires to make the postrace job of NASCAR inspectors more difficult. Predictably, Harvick's reaction to such criticism was "Who, me?"

DURING THE TESTING session earlier this month at Dover International Speedway, Joey Logano was asked what his team was learning. Smiling, Logano replied, "I can't tell you our secrets. " Later, referring to the annual Dover-Pocono softball game, Logano laughed and said, "You should see me play second base. They call me 'Joey Doubleplay.' " One pleasure of this job is seeing people mature and develop. At age 18, Logano was rushed into the Sprint Cup series a year ahead of schedule when Tony Stewart left Joe Gibbs Racing.
