Magnussen, Garcia Take First Win of Season at VIR
by Steven Cole Smith
As strong as the two-car Chevrolet Corvette Racing C7.Rs have been in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship GT Le Mans class, it's hard to believe that the No. 3 Corvette of Jan Magnussen and Antonio Garcia hasn't won since the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring in March -- of 2015. "It's been a long time," Magnussen said. "We just haven't had things go our way." But things did today in the Michelin GT Challenge at Virginia International Raceway, with Magnussen qualifying on the pole and driving a near-flawless first stint before turning it over to Garcia, who kept the car ahead of a powerful Ford GT, the No. 66 Ford Chip Ganassi Racing entry of Dirk Mueller and Joey Hand.

by Pete McCole
The next generation of NASCAR's superstar drivers was on full display Sunday at Michigan International Speedway as twenty-four year old Kyle Larson beat out 20-year-old rookie Chase Elliott to score his first-career NASCAR Sprint Cup victory in the Pure Michigan 400. Larson snatched the lead away from Elliott on a restart with nine laps to go and hit his marks over the final laps to beat Elliott by nearly 1.5 seconds for his first win in 99-career series starts and secure himself a spot in the field for the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

Rosberg leads all the way to win Belgium GP
Ahead of Daniel Riccardo
Nico Rosberg put his Mercedes in front at the start while Max Verstappen next to him got away slow and Rosberg then motored to an easy win in the Belgium GP at Spa ahead of Daniel Riccardo and Lewis Hamilton up from last in the superior Aldo Costa masterpiece. There was a lot of carnage behind Rosberg at the start, including the two Ferraris hitting each other and Kevin Magnussen losing control at over 200 mph through Eau Rouge and hitting the barriers so hard the race had to be red-flagged while they were repaired.
Firestone 600 Post-Race Press Conference
Winner of the Firestone 600, Graham Rahal, driver of the No. 15 Rahal Letterman Lanigan Honda led only one lap tonight -- the last lap and that's all he needed to. He became the 14th driver in IndyCar history to lead only the last lap of the race and win. There was some action there at the end, cautions, so to speak, but the drivers put on a great show for the fans, and I think anybody that watched that race, they can come back next year and understand that when they come to an IndyCar race they're going to get the best racing possible.

Ya had to wait for it. 77 days in fact, then another 100 laps as one car put a hurting on the rest of the field. But in that last 8 laps, racing addicts got their fix as cars went 4-wide to decide the race by 8/1000th of a second, the fifth-closest in IndyCar history. But yes, you had to wait for it.

Rosberg beats Verstappen for pole at Spa
Raikkonen third for Ferrari
Much to the disappointment of the partisan crowd, Nico Rosberg put the Aldo Costa designed Mercedes on pole ahead of the Adrian Newey designed Red Bull for Sunday's Belgium GP. It was the 28th career pole for Rosberg by a very slim margin. Verstappen and Raikkonen both came within 0.2s of snatching pole - and will be determined to get the jump when the lights go out tomorrow. Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari) and Daniel Ricciardo (Red Bull) rounded out the top-5
