DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Dale Earnhardt Jr. won the rain-delayed Sprint Cup Series race at Daytona International Speedway, which ended at 2:41 a.m. with a horrific last-lap accident.

The outcome wasn't in doubt as Earnhardt dominated the race. But as the pack of cars chased him on a two-lap overtime sprint to the finish, contact in traffic sent Austin Dillon's car flying upside down into the fence.

The car tore down a section of fencing and Dillon...

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Jack Jewsbury scored in second-half stoppage time to give the Portland Timbers a 1-0 victory over the San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday night.

San Jose was unable to clear a free kick in its area, which gave Jewsbury the chance run in and make a jumping shot, floating the ball over Earthquakes goalkeeper David Bingham and into the net for his second goal of the season.

Portland thought it took the lead in the 87th minute, when...

A person with knowledge of the details says the Sacramento Kings and swingman Omri Casspi have reached an agreement on a $6 million, two-year deal.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Sunday night because contracts can't be completed until the moratorium on NBA free agency ends Thursday. ESPN first reported the contract discussions.

Casspi has averaged 7.9 points, 3.9 rebounds and 20.8 minutes per game in six seasons....

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Kyle Busch brushed the wall early in his first race at Daytona International Speedway since breaking his right leg and left foot in a crash at the track in February.

Trying to pass Jamie McMurray on lap 17 of the 160-lap race, Busch wiggled and tagged the wall. He lost two laps while his crew worked to repair splitter and body damage on his No. 18 Toyota.

It was a potentially costly setback for Busch, who needs to finish in...

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Abby Wambach lifted American coach Jill Ellis after the final whistle. She ran to the stands for a hug from her wife. And then along with Christine Rampone, she became the first American to lift the Women's World Cup championship trophy in 16 years.

Not a bad farewell to the World Cup.

Wambach played what's expected to be her final World Cup match on Sunday night when the United States beat Japan 5-2 to claim its...
