  • LA boys, girls get bottom seed in 4A tourneys

    Both the Los Alamos boys and girls basketball teams made the Class 4A state tournament field. Unfortunately for both, the teams will be going in as the No. 16 seed.

  • NASCAR postpones Daytona 500 for first time ever

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The Daytona 500 has been postponed for the first time in its 54-year history.

    NASCAR postponed The Great American Race after heavy rain saturated Daytona International Speedway on Sunday.

    Officials spent more than four hours waiting for a window to dry the famed track, but it never came. And when the latest storm cell passed over the speedway, they had little choice but to call it a day and reschedule.

    The 500-mile race was rescheduled for noon Monday. It will be aired on Fox.

  • Big wreck at end of Daytona race

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Only six of 43 cars made it unscathed to the finish line of the Nationwide Series opener at Daytona International Speedway.

    James Buescher was not driving one of those clean cars.

    Still, he managed to dodge and weave his way through an 11-car accident on the last lap of Saturday's race, stealing the victory and setting the stage for what's expected to be a wild Daytona 500.

    Buescher joined unknown John King, winner of Friday night's Truck Series opener, as surprise winners this weekend at Daytona. Both came from nowhere to win crash-marred races. Elliott Sadler, runner-up to Buescher on Saturday, said Sunday's race will be much of the same.
