The Sprint Cup is on a well deserved break this week and driver Paul Menard knows his crew can't wait to:

(Menard) "Spend time with their family, and their kids and their wives."

But Jimmie Johnson is using this down time to prep for next week's race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. And just how important is a win at the track known as The Brickyard?

(Johnson) "This is a career-making weekend for anyone and everyone."

Personnel changes at Roush Fenway. Carl Edwards' Crew Chief Bob Osborne replaced with Chad Norris. 

Team owner Roger Penske says he standing behind driver AJ Allmendinger, hoping he'll be reinstated by NASCAR in time to race at Indy. Allmendinger was suspended after failing a random drug test. A second sample taken from the driver will be tested next week.

And members of the House this week rejecting an effort to cut the $72.3 million dollars the military spends on sports sponsorships like NASCAR and IndyCar.
