- Kyle Busch wins Xfinity Zippo 200 at Watkins Glen
By John Kekis - Saturday Aug 5, 2017
WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. — If Kyle Busch seemed to take a bit longer to take his customary bow after a NASCAR victory, it was understandable.Busch recovered from a spinout and a pit road penalty and survived a late restart to win the Zippo 200 on Saturday, his first triumph at Watkins Glen International in the Xfinity series and 90th in his career.Busch topped the Penske Racing duo of Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski and easily beat them on a restart with three laps to go.Busch has also won 39 Cup races and 48 Truck Series races for 177 overall NASCAR wins.
- Truex wins fuel-mileage gamble at The Glen
By Chronicle news services - Sunday Aug 6, 2017
Martin Truex Jr. won a fuel-mileage gamble, holding off Matt Kenseth on the final lap to capture the NASCAR Cup race at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International on Sunday.Trailing by 3 seconds after saving fuel for several laps, Truex assumed the lead in his No. 78 Toyota and, despite a bobble and locking the brakes as Kenseth challenged on the last lap, won for the fourth time this season.Truex boosted his playoff points total to 34, nearly double that of second-place Jimmie Johnson (18) as his best season shows no signs of tailing off.“I feel like with the way we run, coupled with the bonus points, we should be a lock” for the season finale in Homestead, Fla., Truex said.Antron Brown, who was second at Sonoma Raceway last weekend, raced to victory in the Top Fuel final at the Northwest Nationals in Kent, Wash.

Songwriter and guitarist who spanned country and rock eras continued his career after 2010 Alzheimer's diagnosisGlen Campbell, the Grammy-winning singer, songwriter, guitarist, actor and TV show host whose performing career was as panoramic as his talents, died Tuesday.Campbell, who had been living in a long-term care facility in Tennessee, was diagnosed with the degenerative brain disorder Alzheimer’s disease in late 2010, and it was announced publicly in June 2011.Over his career, Campbell — perhaps best known for the 1975 hit “Rhinestone Cowboy” — released more than 60 albums and sold 45 million records, many achieving gold, platinum and double-platinum status and posting hit singles on the country and adult contemporary charts.[...] he brandished a versatility that went beyond country; he even played with the Beach Boys in late 1964 and early 1965, subbing on tour for Brian Wilson, and singing on the Beach Boys’ legendary album “Pet Sounds.”Campbell recorded three by the composer Jimmy Webb — “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” “Wichita Lineman” and “Galveston” — that struck a chord with a public saturated with the edge and intensity of rock music of the day.After hosting a replacement for CBS’s popular “Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour,” Campbell got his own show, “The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour,” which ran on CBS for three seasons (Rob Reiner was a staff writer).According to a June 3, 2016 story in The Boot, a country-music news web site, Campbell secured new management committed to unearthing music that Campbell recorded but never released.There are unreleased recordings of him with The Wrecking Crew – lots of them, Kimbrell said, referencing the legendary but largely unknown L.A. studio musicians who played on many of the 60’s greatest hits.

- Allmendinger hoping to duplicate his lone NASCAR Cup win
By John Kekis - Sunday Aug 6, 2017
WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. — Three years ago AJ Allmendinger didn’t want the second Sunday in August to end, so he lingered in victory lane at Watkins Glen International to soak in the atmosphere with his crew.The victory on the road course stamped the Los Gatos native as a threat to win every time NASCAR’s Cup series visits the two twisting layouts on the schedule.With the playoffs looming, he’s 27th in points and needs a victory to qualify for the postseason as the series stops at The Glen, his best shot left to produce that needed result.If there’s any added pressure, he says he doesn’t feel it.Honestly, said Allmendinger, who drives the No. 47 Chevrolet for JTG Daugherty Racing.“The racetrack will always be special, obviously, being my first win, reliving those memories,” said Allmendinger, an expert road racer from his days in open-wheel racing.Ambrose had been dominant in NASCAR’s top two series at The Glen, winning two straight Cup races and four straight events in the second-tier series.The previous year Allmendinger also won on the road courses at Elkhart Lake (Wis.) and Mid-Ohio in NASCAR’s second-tier series, but success at the top level has been elusive.“This year, we’ve been a little off on speed kind of everywhere we’ve been to,” said Allmendinger, who has one top-five finish and four top-10s in 21 starts this year.Xfinity practice on Friday gave a handful of Cup regulars a chance for extra time on WGI’s 2.45-mile layout as they prepared to race in Saturday’s Zippo 200 with an eye toward Sunday.“There’s so much a feel of, ‘I’ve got to get it done, I’ve got to win this thing,’” said Wallace, a two-time winner at The Glen who will work the race as an analyst for the Motor Racing Network.
