CAR-NASCAR-RE-ENERGIZED BIFFLE
Greg Biffle quickly succeeded through the early stages of his NASCAR career. He gave Jack Roush his first NASCAR season title in 2000 by winning the Truck Series. He had been rookie of the year in that series, and also in the Nationwide Series, where he won another season title in 2002 before moving up again. A decade later, Biffle is still looking to complete a NASCAR title trio that has never been accomplished. This could be finally be the year. By Stephen Hawkins. AP Graphic STP 400.

CAR-INDYCAR-FRANCHITTI'S SLUMP
Dario Franchitti went into this season needing only two wins to move into very elite company on IndyCar's all-time wins list. No problem for the four-time champion, right? Things haven't been all that smooth at the start of this season, though. Franchitti has struggled with the new IndyCar, doesn't have a podium finish through the first three races, and is 13th in the standings. By Auto Racing Writer Jenna Fryer.

CAR--F1-BAHRAIN GP
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates - The Bahrain Grand Prix returns this week to the divided Gulf nation, where two-time world champion Sebastian Vettel's bid to salvage his season is likely to be overshadowed by anti-government demonstrations and suffocating security. The last-minute decision to go ahead with Sunday's race came despite violent near-daily clashes between security forces and protesters. By Michael Casey.
