NASCAR: Citing unprecedented and extraordinary circumstances resulting from several allegations of race-fixing last week at Richmond International Raceway, NASCAR has expanded the field for its Chase for the Sprint Cup playoffs by adding Jeff Gordon as a 13th driver.
With an eighth-place finish at Richmond, Gordon fell one point shy of Penske Racing's Joey Logano of making the 12-man Chase field. But that was before evidence emerged mid-week that the Penske team had struck a deal with fellow Ford competitors Front Row Motorsports.
That deal allowed a struggling Logano to pass FRM driver David Gilliland easily for 22nd place as the laps wound down to gain the additional championship point he needed to edge Gordon for the final Chase berth.
After compiling and studying video and audio evidence, NASCAR CEO Brian France and president Mike Helton decided to place the Penske and Front Row teams on probation for the remainder of the 2013 season.
