2017 is already the year of the surprise retirement after Nico Rosberg quit Formula One after finally winning the championship.

An hour before the start of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, the cars of three of the four championship drivers had yet to pass technical inspection.

Carl Edwards got his first win with Joe Gibbs Racing in his #19 Toyota and his first win in 31 races, and subsequently rushed into the stands with the checkered flag to celebrate with the fans.
