MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) There's been lot of talk about tires in the NASCAR garage the past few weeks, or longer, and lots of theories about whether something shady is going on or if the chatter is just a bunch of hot air.

After last two races, NASCAR confiscated tires from teams. It took tires from red-hot points leader Kevin Harvick and Joey Logano after the race at Phoenix two weeks ago, and declared them fine a few days later. It took tires from Harvick, Kurt Busch, Paul Menard and Ryan Newman last weekend at Fontana.

Harvick, the defending series champion, has won twice this season and finished first or second in eight consecutive races dating to the end of last season. It's the second-longest such streak in NASCAR history. Seven-time series champion Richard Petty did it in 11 straight races in 1975.
