After 36 races, thousands of miles, heartbreak and triumph the 2010 season has come to a close. And a familiar face went out on top – Jimmie Johnson scored his fifth consecutive Sprint Cup Championship. In the week leading up to the final race at Homestead it was NASCAR that led the news.

NASCAR also said this week they had a meeting with Volkswagen planned for January. The manufacturer has been rumored to NASCAR throughout the season.
