NASCAR: Ryan Blaney needed two extra laps after thinking he had already won the NASCAR All-Star race and $1 million, staying in front through a green-white-checkered finish after a caution came out just yards before he got to the line the first time.


Blaney’s crew was already celebrating the victory in the pit and the driver had already lowered the window net of his No. 12 Ford after crossing the start-finish line.

The All-Star race has to finish on a green flag, and the caution flag came out just before Blaney had crossed the line because Ricky Stenhouse Jr. slammed into the outside wall going into the backstretch.

Pushed by his Penske teammate, Austin Cindric, on the restart, Blaney was able to stay in front and hold off Denny Hamlin, who finished 0.266 seconds behind.

Alex Palou, who averaged 233.499, qualified second for next Sunday’s race alongside his Chip Ganassi Racing teammate, and Rinus VeeKay was third at 233.385.


FORMULA ONE: Max Verstappen reclaimed the points lead as the reigning world champion won the Spanish Grand Prix for his third consecutive victory after Charles Leclerc’s Ferrari broke down while he was comfortably in front.

Verstappen needed an assist from Red Bull teammate Sergio Pérez to get his fourth victory of the season, however. Pérez was leading when his team told him to let Verstappen pass on Lap 49 of 66.

Pérez, who could have taken just his third career win, finished second ahead of Mercedes’ George Russell.
