The wreck forced officials to eliminate the nine-car pole shootout scheduled for today. Instead, each car will get one qualifying run to establish the 33-car grid for the May 24th race.

HOUSTON (AP) — The Rockets will try to complete a comeback from a 3-1 deficit when they host the Clippers this afternoon in Game 7 of the NBA Western Conference semifinals. Houston escaped elimination by rallying from 19 points down in Los Angeles to beat the Clippers in Game 6.

CHICAGO (AP) — The Cubs will be looking to extend their winning streak to seven games when they host the finale of a three-game series against Pittsburgh this afternoon. The Cubs haven't strung seven wins together since 2011.
