    The three-time NASCAR champ had hoped the local district attorney would drop the case against him in the death of Kevin Ward. Instead, the DA passed the case along to a grand jury.

    Driver of the No. 34 Ford will have a retro look at Martinsville CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Taking the wraps off a new No. 34, revealing a car in the likeness of his famous father's racers, was enough to get Wendell Scott Jr.'s adrenaline pumping. The boldly styled number, the familiar pale and almost pewter blue against the backdrop of a modern Front Row Motorsports Ford had the next-generation Scott -- who claims to be 68 years old ("I've lied about it so much, I can't even remember") -- ready to turn back the clock himself Tuesday afternoon at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. When the car takes to the track Oct. 26 for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup's seventh battle at Martinsville Speedway, the driving duties will fall instead to David Ragan, but the name of 2015 Hall of Fame inductee Wendell Scott will still adorn the top of the driver's door.

    The decision whether to charge three-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart in the August death of a fellow driver at a sprint car race in upstate New York will be up to a grand jury. Ontario County District Attorney Michael Tantillo said Tuesday he made the decision to present the case to a grand jury after reviewing evidence collected by sheriff's investigators. Tantillo could have determined there was not enough evidence to support charges and dropped the case, but instead announced his decision more than a month after Stewart's car struck and killed Kevin Ward Jr. at a dirt-track race on Aug. 9. In a statement, Stewart said he respects the time and effort authorities have spent ''investigating this tragic accident.'' ''I look forward to this process being completed, and I will continue to provide my full cooperation,'' he said.

    Will Power, who had his championship dreams destroyed twice before when he crashed out of season-ending races, was overcome with emotion as he finally claimed his first IndyCar Series crown. I was crying when I crossed the finish line," said Power, who raced strategically to take the crown with a ninth-place finish in Saturday's season-finale at the Auto Club Speedway track. It was enough to give the Australian a 62-point victory over runner-up Helio Castroneves. Tony Kanaan won Saturday's 250-lap race to earn his first win since last year's Indianapolis 500.

Power won his first series championship Saturday night, finishing ninth in the final race before raising the Astor Cup for the first time in a career filled with agonizing misses. Tony Kanaan won the 500-mile, double-points race under the lights at Fontana for his first victory of the season, but Power easily preserved his healthy points lead over second-place teammate Helio Castroneves to wrap up Team Penske's first IndyCar title since 2006.

    Russian rookie driver Mikhail Aleshin was upgraded to stable condition after suffering head and chest injuries during a multi-car practice crash ahead of the IndyCar auto race. Aleshin had already qualified for Saturday's race when he was involved in a flying wreck on the final practice run of Friday night's schedule at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, 81 kilometers (50 miles) east of Los Angeles. The 27-year-old from Moscow, who earlier this year became the first Russian to compete in the Indianapolis 500, was airlifted to Loma Linda University Medical Center. IndyCar doctor Terry Trammell said Aleshin's injuries included "fractured ribs, a broken right clavicle, a concussion and chest injuries."
