My jaw drops every time Roger Federer returns a crushing serve at 130-140 mph to his opponent. For some, matching Bobby Jones's classic elegant swing is equivalent to reaching the epitome of sporting success. But calling tennis or golf or any other the hardest sport is debatable.

The Toyota Corolla clocks in at fourth in the top ten and is the least expensive of the top five. The Toyota Corolla starts at $15,000 and averages $20,000.

Third place in the third race of the Chase went to Kevin Harvick, with Stewart finishing fourth, his seventh top-10 finish at Kansas in 10 races there, and Johnson's Hendrick Motorsports teammate, Jeff Gordon, taking fifth after a fierce battle with Edwards.
Along with all of these teams running for the championship there will be a healthy dose of part timers running races here and there. What all of this news seems to suggest to me is that many race team are more and more willing to run teams in the Nationwide Series. Be that through the cost saving items NASCAR has built into that series or be it easier to find sponsors for this series.
