Land Rover is working on a faster Range Rover Sport by using more aluminum in its construction, which will provide some serious weight reduction. Word from Land Rover's chief of chassis systems is Land Rover might go even further with a more aggressive version of the Range Rover Sport.

Jeff Gordon has been fined $100,000 and docked 25 points for deliberately crashing into Clint Bowyer on Sunday during the AdvoCare 500. Brad Keselowski was fined $25,000 for having a cell phone in his fire suit during the race. One might question whether Gordon being fined only four times more than Keselowski is fair for the type of offense.
