Racing community sounds off on Sunday night's awards show

MTV's Video Music Awards show on Sunday night was a spectacle, to say the least. While there were a few shining moments -- we're looking at you, Tori Kelly -- the majority of the night was simply full of outrageousness. From host Miley Cyrus' outlandish outfits to singer Kayne West's long-winded speech and declaration of 2020 presidential candidacy, the awards show left eyes wide and mouths agape, with an occasional nervous chortle slipping through the shock. And the NASCAR community was not immune -- especially Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Read More

Presenting NASCAR content from around the web

Editor's note: On Wednesday at noon ET, "High 5" will present some of the best NASCAR-related content from around the web. 1. Exceeding expectations The NASCAR world was shocked when Kyle Busch returned to racing after only an 11-race hiatus following his injuries at Daytona. But no one would have dreamed Busch would come back with this big a fire in his belly, winning four out of five races from Sonoma to Indianapolis. According to NBC Sports' Joe Posnanski, his success is evidence of Busch's potential as a race car driver -- which had been clear since his earliest days behind the wheel -- becoming reality following his injury and new fatherhood to son Brexton.

Dressed in full Elvis Presley garb -- to match his "Devil in Disguise" by The King (no, not that one) Irwin Tools Night Race driver introductions song -- Yeley handed the mic over to his (literally angelic) daughter to announce him and boy, did she not disappoint. What really made it was that little extra twang she added. Well done, J.J. Yeley’s daughter. Read More
