    NASCAR is the latest corporation to distance itself from Donald Trump. On the same day one of its top sponsors called on NASCAR to take a stance against Trump, the motorsports series said it will not hold its season-ending awards ceremony at the Trump National Doral Miami. ''We looked at everything we saw coming down and what we heard from our sponsors and our partners and what we feel we should be doing, and that's what led us to the decision today,'' NASCAR spokesman David Higdon said Friday at Daytona International Speedway.

    NASCAR's most famous race track is seemingly safer and possibly more politically correct as the series returned to its birthplace Friday. Daytona International Speedway, in the final push of a 0 million renovation, has come close to covering the speedway in energy-absorbing SAFER barriers as track President Joie Chitwood vowed to do after Kyle Busch was injured in February. Busch, who broke his right leg and left foot when he crashed into a concrete wall a day before the season-opening Daytona 500, made his return to the speedway Friday and promptly wrecked in an 11-car crash minutes into the opening practice session.

As Busch's car spun down the track, he was hit squarely in the side by Greg Biffle.

  • IndyCar CEO: Rules package was off for Fontana race (The Associated Press)
    Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:39:19 PDT
    The CEO of IndyCar said Wednesday that the series went too far with the rules package for last weekend's race at California, where many drivers sharply criticized what they said was dangerous pack racing. Despite the admission, chief executive Mark Miles warned that criticism of IndyCar by its teams and drivers won't be tolerated going forward. At times, drivers were five wide, dicing for position as IndyCar saw a record number of passes for the lead.

    Finding that middle ground is particularly vital in IndyCar, where cars occasionally go airborne in accidents. Many drivers at Saturday's 500-mile race at Auto Club Speedway believe IndyCar officials crossed the line by putting too much downforce on the cars, adding speed and risk at the 2-mile oval.

    Graham Rahal avoided a penalty despite driving out of pit road with part of his fueling mechanism attached and held on through a wild finish for his second career IndyCar victory. After a frenetic day of racing that culminated with Ryan Briscoe hurtling through the air at the finish, all the drivers wanted to talk about was surviving. Rahal ended a 125-race winless streak by taking the checkers at Auto Club Speedway on Saturday, but there was more criticism of IndyCar than praise for the third-generation driver after a white-knuckle day of pack racing around the 2-mile oval.
