Germany's Sebastian Vettel earned Scuderia Toro Rosso's first pole position and victory in Formula One, as the 21-year-old became the youngest winner in F1 during Sunday's rain-soaked Italian Grand Prix. (Mad props to Toro Rosso.)

On the left side of the pond:

Brian Vickers and AJ Allmendinger weren't nearly as fortunate in Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

While running 18th, a multi-car incident on lap 229 collected the No. 83 and sent Brian's Red Bull Toyota to the garage. There was damage all over — a bent trailing arm and mount and loads of cosmetic damage. The No. 83 team fixed what it could, and Brian returned to the track 13 laps down and finished 35th.

The defining moment of AJ's day came on lap 264, when top-35 rival Michael McDowell connected with the No. 84, sending AJ's Red Bull Toyota spinning and scraping the wall. AJ ended up 38th.

Following the Sylvania 300, the points sheet reads like this: Brian's 16th in the driver standings, while's AJ's No. 84 sits 36th in the owner standings (15 points from the top 35).
