Hendrick Motorsports lost its appeal on Tuesday to overturn severe penalties assessed by NASCAR to Jimmie Johnson's No. 48 team for rules infractions that occurred last month at Daytona International Speedway.

Denny Hamlin survived a major crash involving half of the field and then held off Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch during the closing laps to win Saturday night's Sprint Unlimited at Daytona International Speedway.
After being sidelined for more than six months due to a leg injury, Tony Stewart's long-awaited return to racing occurred on Friday when he ran a total of 50 laps during practice at Daytona International Speedway.
