    Martin Truex Jr. didn't avoid ladders or black cats, never worried about cracking mirrors or stepping on cracks. Especially when things have gone as wrong as they had for Truex and his single-car Furniture Row team the past year. Kevin Harvick was second, followed by Jimmie Johnson, Denny Hamlin, Brad Keselowski and Kurt Busch.

    Jimmie Johnson knows what it's like to have a dominant car at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Truex shattered a NASCAR record for miles led in a race with 588. Truex also set a record for most laps led at the Coca-Cola 600.

    Lee Greenwood's patriotic anthem was almost lost to bad timing. Greenwood was at Charlotte Motor Speedway to sing his anthem, ''God Bless The USA'' before the start of the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday night. ''It wasn't necessarily on the shelf,'' Greenwood said.

    It looked for a moment as if Kyle Larson would get his revenge on Joey Logano for beating him out last weekend to win the Sprint Cup All-Star race. Hamlin passed Larson and Logano in overtime to win the Xfinity Series race Saturday on a hot and slick racetrack at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Larson and Logano, who were running 1-2, elected to stay on the track while Hamlin pitted for four tires.

    Joey Logano has shown he has a pretty good feel for the track at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Logano looks to complete a ''Joey sweep'' at CMS at the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday night after winning last October's 400-mile playoff race and the Sprint Cup All-Star race here last weekend. Logano is eighth in the Sprint Cup point standings and has three top-five finishes in 12 races, but he is still searching for his first points race victory of the season.

    Alexander Rossi earned ,548,743 for winning the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500. Rossi's winnings included a ,000 bonus from Sunoco for being the top rookie in the race. Rossi stretched his fuel mileage for the final 90 miles to score an upset victory.

    When Alexander Rossi pulled into victory lane following his upset win in the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500, he had no idea what he was supposed to do during the traditional celebration. The first rookie Indy champion since Helio Castroneves in 2001 - and the first American-born rookie to win since Louis Meyer in 1928 - Rossi stretched his final tank of gas the final 90 miles, four laps longer on one tank than any other driver did the entire race. Rossi watched the 500 as a young racer in California - his first memory of ''The Greatest Spectacle In Racing'' is Marco Andretti nearly winning as a rookie in 2006 - but he never had any plans to be a participant.

    Carlos Munoz has twice been a bridesmaid in the Indianapolis 500. After losing to Andretti Autosport teammate Alexander Rossi on Sunday, the Colombian was crestfallen. Rossi used fuel strategy and stretched his final tank almost 90 miles.


  • Column: Hornish doesn't regret how career quietly faded (The Associated Press)

    It's easy to forget that Hornish was one of the greatest American open-wheel drivers of his generation after his failed move to NASCAR. There was a seven-year period where Hornish was a contender every week in IndyCar. Hornish is building a wagon that resembles a Volkswagen bus for his son, and a teardrop camper for the American Girl doll collection his two daughters share.

    IndyCar used the lack of action to hold a live social media chat with Ed Carpenter, Josef Newgarden and JR Hildebrand. ''It's still raining,'' Newgarden said at one point during the chat. The drivers were asked everything from what food they eat in May at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway - hot dogs and ice cream - and their thoughts on last week's announcement that IndyCar will return to Watkins Glen International in September.

    IndyCar officials found a popular replacement for its canceled race in Boston, announcing Friday it would return to Watkins Glen International in New York for Labor Day weekend. The race is set for Sept. 4, the same day Boston was scheduled, and will be the 15th event on the 16-race schedule. Watkins Glen joins Phoenix and Road America in venues that returned to the IndyCar schedule this season.
