Josef Newgarden was on top of the world after winning the Indy 500. This year feels much different

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Team Penske's Josef Newgarden is the defending winner of the Indianapolis 500 and he is a favorite for Sunday's race. A year ago, he seemed on top of the world. Since then, he has had to find ways to restore his love of racing. And then he and his teammates were caught up in a cheating scandal that cost him his season-opening win in Florida. He goes into this weekend's showcase event without team President Tim Cindric, who was among several Penske employees suspended in the fallout. There is rain in the forecast for Sunday and the race could be delayed.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr vows not to retaliate, wreck Kyle Busch at Coca-Cola 600 in Charlotte

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — Ricky Stenhouse Jr. has cooled off and no longer plans to wreck Kyle Busch at the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday. But that doesn’t mean he and Busch are back on speaking terms. Stenhouse said he spoke to Busch’s team owner Richard Childress — who had threatened to go after Stenhouse himself if he retaliated against his driver in NASCAR’s longest race of the season at Charlotte Motor Speedway — and said they are fine. Stenhouse threw a punch at Busch that started a melee following last weekend's All-Star Race at North Wilkesboro Speedway. Stenhouse said he spoke the words in the heat of the moment. He was fined $75,000 from NASCAR. He said that you never want to wreck anybody on purpose.

Rafael Nadal says he is feeling better and this might not be his last French Open

PARIS (AP) — This might not turn out to be Rafael Nadal’s last French Open, after all. The 14-time champion at Roland Garros said Saturday that he is not 100% sure that he will not play again at the Grand Slam tournament. Nadal has missed much of the last two seasons because of hip and abdominal muscle issues, and he is just 7-4 in 2024. There had been some doubt after a lopsided loss at the Italian Open two weeks ago whether he would even enter the clay-court event in Paris at all this year. Nadal was drawn to face No. 4 seed Alexander Zverev in a showdown that will be everyone’s focus on Monday.
