Hitting The Bricks...The NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) heads to Indianapolis, Ind. this weekend for the Indiana 250 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender Kyle Larson will be making his first start at the famed 2.5-mile oval.
3 Races, 3 States, 1 Week...When Larson gets to Indy, it will cap his week-long tour of three races in three states. He began the week by competing in the NNS race at Chicagoland Speedway on Sunday, July 21. He will take a break from the NNS to race in the inaugural NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at Eldora Speedway on Wednesday, July 24 before heading to Indianapolis for the Indiana 250.
Flying High...Cessna returns as primary sponsor on the No. 32 this weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The last time Larson's Camaro sported the Cessna paint scheme, the young driver came up just one spot short, finishing in the runner-up position at Michigan International Speedway. Cessna, the world's leading general aviation company, has designed, produced and delivered more than 193,500 airplanes around the globe. This includes more than 6,300 Citation business jets, making it the largest fleet of business jets in the world.
This Week's Camaro...Crew chief Trent Owens and the No. 32 Cessna team have prepared chassis TSM-403 for competition this weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Larson has not previously raced TSM-403, as it is a brand-new chassis from the Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) stable.
Stop By...Larson will be on hand to meet fans and sign autographs on Saturday, July 27 from 10:00-11:00 a.m. EDT at the NNS autograph session, which will be located in the Pavilion. He will also make an appearance alongside his TSM teammates at the Chevy stage at 2:15 p.m. EDT on Saturday.
Watch and Listen...The Indiana 250 can be seen live on Saturday, July 27 on ESPN, with race coverage beginning at 4:00 p.m. EDT. The event can also be heard live on IMS Radio as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio, channel 90.
Previous Race Recap...Larson made his debut in the Windy City last Sunday, making his first laps of competition at Chicagoland Speedway. Larson and the No. 32 International team honed in on the setup of their Chevy Camaro throughout the 200-lap event and led four laps on their way to earning a 12th-place finish.
Kyle Larson on Indianapolis Motor Speedway:
"I am really excited to race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. There are just some tracks that we go to that you get a little more excited to run, and Indy is one of those tracks for me. I've never raced there, so it will be extra special to get to compete there for the first time. Hopefully we will be able to get a strong finish in our Cessna Chevy and make our first time out one to remember."

Going into the 2013 season, the Cincinnati Bengals have done many things right on offense. The most important question that we’ll have to review is do the Bengals’ positives outweigh the negatives? After our top five most relevant questions, we should have a better understanding about how the Bengals’ offense stacks up against the AFC North that is home to the always impossing...
There is nothing better than getting a little taste of the NFL during the off-season, and this time it is courtesy of HBO’s newest iteration of ‘Hard Knocks.’ This season will feature the Bengals, and even though they may not be the most entertaining team in the league, HBO still makes it a blast to get pumped about the series. Enjoy.
Hard Knocks: The Bengals Are Back
CINCINNATI Not all gasps are made the same. They come in their own unique octaves and tones depending on the situation.
The gasps heard around the Bengals practice field complex across the street from Paul Brown Stadium were definitive. Someone was hurt and it was more than just any someone.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green proved in 2012 that he can be among the elite. Could he now compete with Calvin Johnson as the best wideout in the NFL?
For the past few days I have brought to you a list of who I thought would be the top ten fantasy running backs and the top ten fantasy quarterbacks going into this 2013 season.
In this 2-part series, I will now put...
Right tackle Andre Smith was back with the Bengals for the start of training camp on Thursday, but couldn't practice because of a calf injury.
Smith was the only player who missed all of the team's offseason workouts and a mandatory minicamp while attending to personal matters. He signed a three-year deal in April, keeping the Bengals' offensive line intact from last...

The Cincinnati Bengals got quite a scare as their star receiver A.J. Green came up limp during Thursday's practice, but luckily it's not believed to be serious.
“I think he’s fine,” head coach Marvin Lewis said, via Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com. “They went inside just to take a look, “but I think he’s fine.”

Quinn was on the roster for 15 games last season but was inactive each week. He was Denver's second-round pick in 2009 and played in 29 games, including four starts, in two seasons.
The Bengals also waived defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga of Hawaii, a first...
The Bengals open their 2013 training camp Thursday at Paul Brown Stadium. The team has made the playoffs each of the last two seasons but each time it has been a short-lived trip to Houston for a disappointing end in an AFC wild card game.
The roster is in a solid state and there is no reason to think this team cant again make another push for the postseason but the expectations...
Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Cincinnati Bengals
HBO has put out a couple trailers for the upcoming season of “Hard Knocks”. Because they can’t start filming until the Bengals report for camp , it’s either mixed footage from the previous Bengals season of “Hard Knocks” or intense footage of this CGI tiger. I feel cheated being teased with the idea of a tiger being...

Reedy was there and this was part of the discussion:

Defensive end Jamaal Anderson, formerly of the Cincinnati Bengals, has inked a deal with the Chicago Bears and will fill the void in the training camp roster that was created when defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis abruptly retired from the National Football League.
Anderson was originally drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in 2007 and has played in 77 games, accumulating a meager 7.5 total...
