While many Americans will fire up the barbeque one final time and watch the opening weekend of college football this Labor Day weekend, Danica Patrick and her fellow NASCAR Sprint Cup Series competitors will be “laboring,” for lack of a better term.
Sunday night’s AdvoCare 500 Sprint Cup race is certainly no holiday for drivers as the marathon, 325-lap event around the fast, old and slick 1.5 miles of Atlanta Motor Speedway asphalt is one of the biggest challenges of the season.

Kurt Busch, current driver of the No. 78 for Furniture Row Racing has signed a multi-year contract with Stewart Haas Racing, according to ESPN.
“I’m going to Stewart-Haas,” Busch told ESPN. “I’ve signed my deal.”
Busch will join fellow drivers Tony Stewart, Danica Patrick, and Kevin Harvick next season. Harvick will also be in his first season with the team.
Tony Stewart claims that he and fellow driver/employee Ryan Newman are "friends." If Stewart treats all his friends the way he did Newman, they all need to be looking over their shoulders. Stewart is not only a driver, but he has become a successful team owner, taking over Stewart-Haas racing in 2009. He has become the most successful owner/driver in the sport in many years...
