LOS ANGELES (AP) — If No. 7 UCLA can live up to the lofty expectations it carries into the new season, its first two road games will merely be trial runs for bigger and better things to come.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Matt Kenseth was a five-time winner this time last year and an established championship threat. He doesn't feel any less confident about his title chances this season even though he has not visited Victory Lane.

Kenseth goes into Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend winless, but ranked a solid fifth in the Sprint Cup standings. With just two races remaining to set the 16-driver Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field, Kenseth should make it in...
