    NASCAR penalized three teams Wednesday for infractions at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Matt McCall, crew chief for Jamie McMurray, was placed on probation through Dec. 31 for a P2 penalty because the right rear quarter panel wheel opening had been modified after qualifying inspection for the Coca-Cola 600. Jimmie Johnson's team received a P1 penalty for receiving a written warning for the second consecutive race.

    Greg Biffle is not celebrating yet. Biffle had a strong two weeks at Charlotte Motor Speedway, capped by a second place in the Coca-Cola 600 - his best on-track showing this season. The Sprint Cup finish was just Biffle's second top 10 of the year (he was 10th in the Daytona 500) and only the third for Roush Fenway drivers this season.

    Joe Gibbs has had many special nights in football and auto racing. Few were bigger than Sunday's showing in the Coca-Cola 600. The highlight, though, was Carl Edwards' first victory for his new JGR team in NASCAR's longest race.

    Carl Edwards was as much relieved as he was excited to win at Charlotte Motor Speedway. After all, joining Joe Gibbs Racing means big expectations that he hadn't met this season before the Coca-Cola 600. Edwards outlasted Greg Biffle to win NASCAR's longest race, getting his 24th career victory, but first time since leaving Roush Fenway Racing to become JGR's fourth entry.

    Bruton Smith said reaching the NASCAR Hall of Fame was worth the wait. ''Well, we spent a year and half, two years waiting,'' the 88-year-old Smith said Sunday at Charlotte Motor Speedway. ''But it finally happened.'' Smith, founder and head of Speedway Motorsports Inc., said he had kind of given up on his chances of reaching the hall a couple of years back, but found himself tickled by his inclusion.
