Cole Custer became the first rookie winner in the NASCAR Cup Series in nearly four years, surging to the lead in a four-wide, final-lap scramble Sunday at Kentucky Speedway. Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr. were dueling side by side for the lead on the final restart when Custer — with a push from Matt DiBenedetto on the outside in the backstretch — made his move in the No. 41 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford. As the leaders bunched in Turn 1, Custer slid ahead and outlasted Truex’s Toyota. The victory was the first by a series rookie since Chris Buescher at Pocono on Aug. 1, 2016. Making his 20th series start, the 22-year-old Custer celebrated with a frontstretch burnout as his crew happily ran to greet him. DiBenedetto was third, and Harvick fourth.

Hockey is the latest sport to finalize a return to competition after NHL owners and players approved an agreement to resume the season.

NHL to finish season in Canada after virus spike in Vegas

The Associated Press  |  Posted Jul 11th - 1:54pm

NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly says coronavirus cases spiking in the Las Vegas area contributed to the NHL’s decision to complete its season in Canada. Games are scheduled to begin Aug. 1 in Toronto and Edmonton. Las Vegas was long considered a front-runner. Daly also said one player testing positive when play starts isn’t expected to shut down the playoffs, but an outbreak would change the equation. He didn’t say what the league considered an outbreak. Training camps open across North America on Monday, which is also the deadline for players to opt out of participating with no penalty.

Collin Morikawa takes a three-shot lead into the third round of the Workday Charity Open in Ohio. His 13-under 131 is one stroke away from the 36-hole record at Muirfield Village that Jason Dufner set three years ago at the Memorial. The second round wasn’t completed until this morning because of storm delays. Brooks Koepka (KEHP’-kuh) and Justin Rose are among the players who missed the cut. Koepka closed with five birdies in seven holes last evening, but his 74-69 was one shot short. The cut was a 142, the highest score to make the cut in the five weeks since the PGA Tour restarted its season from the COVID-19 pandemic.
